So, I'm looking at doing a side panel mod. I'm still not 100% sure on whether or not I will do this, but it is quite likely.

I'll probably be using a 220mm x 300mm sheet of this: http://sheetplastics.co.uk/Polished_Perspex/Polished_Perspex_Clear?product_id=3047

And then I'll probably use these to keep it in place: http://www.first4magnets.com/f294---4mm-dia-x-05mm-thick-n42-neodymium-magnet---014kg-pull-x50-a36y-744-p.asp

I don't want to make it completely permanent, so magnets seem like a good option to me.

Thoughts, opinions?

magnets interfere with components. might be a bad idea.

That's my only worry so far, if I get more people saying that it will cause problems, I'll just use 3mm acrylic and stick it in with glue.

That reminds me, I have some ridiculously sticky tape I could use. Thanks for the suggestion!

My first real build. It's been a work in progress over the last year from re-housing an old pc that has evolved into a totally new build.

The missing side fan is covered by a DemciFlex filter. I just wanted to get an idea of how it would look with a window and whether temps are affected that much.

I have a 140mm Bit Fenix Spectre Pro in the base that I originally had as an exhaust until the Corsair fan replaced it. There is a jumper wire sticking out the rear grommets for switching the LED on or off for that one until I work out what I'm doing with it. There is a rather messy cable going from the WiFi/Bluetooth PCI card to the USB header and I think next time I have the Graphics card out I'll re-rout the cable underneath if there's room. Just not enough length to cable tie it up neatly. Same for the Exhaust fan

So yeah couple of cable tidy exercises to be completed but overall very happy with the case, ease of build etc. I had an issue with the PSU when I first installed it - the rear panel join at the case floor was a little warped. I got this case pretty much as soon as they came out last year so it may just be an early production quality issue, regardless, when I tightened the PSU mounting screws everything lined up. Still a little buckle but purely cosmetic and not worth a RMA.







Cheers

Why is the rear 140 af140 on intake? Do you have any exhaust?
