DF-85 Mod help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I;m about to purchase the Antec DF-85 for my new build, im naming it "red death"

because literally everything is black and red, but i am not a huge fan of the side panel. i am looking for a away to trim the panel out, and jsut have one single clear Plexiglas (or w.e is used) and have a giant window to make the case more vibrant. im not worried about cooling because i am water cooling my new CPU (the new bulldozer) and my 2 GPUs are a cool running setup as is.

so options with the case?
suggestions?
easier to hire local shop or buy tools and do it myself.. im not great with hand tools. i have used dremmels and such, but i cant afford to buy them for just one use.. any opinions/advice welcome!

You do not need to buy U channel molding if you have a steady hand.
