Since lot of you would like to have a window on your Defines or Arcs heres a little how to window mod. Sorry I don't have any pictures of cuting the side panel but its straight forvard job with the dremmel.
I couldn't find black tinted plexi so I did it myself. I used car window film fro 3m.

To attach plexi to the side pannel I used 3m double sided tape.


And here's end result

My computer decided to die on me a few days ago. frown.gif I think its the PSU. I hear this weird squealing sound coming from the PSU when I run power through it. Whenever I try to turn the computer on it comes on for a split second and then powers off. The squealing from the PSU stops and the power indicator led on my mobo remains lit. Wish I had another PSU to test my theory.

What thickness should the acrylic be for a side panel?

Also, does anyone have a link for some smoked acrylic?

The thinner the better. The panel in mine is 1/8" thick. You can grab some smoked acrylic from Amazon. You might be able to find it cheaper elsewhere, but if you have Prime, it ships free.

Thanks for the reply.

I found some on MNPCTech for the same price. Now I need to decide on what design I want. I like how mrrockwell did his but I don't want to steal it.

Hi, nice:thumb:

I´m about to do almost the same in a R4, but with a 240 (top) and 280 in front, could you plz tell me your loop order, cause I can´t really see it clearly from the pics...
Do you have the exhaust from the 360 going behind the mobo plate to the res/pump?
Looks nice anyways, need to try it out, ftm I´m planning my loop order, while waiting for orders to arrive...



Just got a bay res and will try it in the loop, I won´t use the swiftech, but might also go for a tuberes or a tuberes-top for the D5...

I´m also looking forward to pics from Adi, when he gets his res mounted:winksmil1
