Hello,

I am new here and I need a little bit of help. I just bought a Carbide 400R case and I want to mod it to look like the car from the movie Deathproof =]
What I need help with is that I want to have a window on my side panel, but I don't want to buy a dremel just for that, so is there a windowed side panel out there that would fit? Or is there anywhere in the Orlando area that would do the cutting for me??? I'd apreciate any help an ideas =]

hey but if you rimove the side fan, the dust will enter again ?
also whit positive pressure ?

if you have positive pressure then dust should not enter though the mesh. alternatively you can remove the mesh and add a window the size of the cut out, or if you dont want a window you can buy another right side panel and use it on the left since they are interchangeable.

if your really wanting to do some heavy modding you should probably just get a dremel

I have one back in Brazil where I used to live, and I didn't bring it with me when I moved here not only because of the different power outlet thingy, but it's 220v not 110v... and I don't want to have to buy another dremel just to cut one window on my case =/
Any other suggestions? =]

I wonder how effective it can pull if the fans are in the cut-out position (judging from most pics online most people ahve the rad in the cut-out and fans on the inside)

Inside. Loot to my subscription below comment for a link to the rig photos.

Hello,

Does anyone know if the 400R will hold a CEB sized motherboard? CEB motherboards are 305 × 267 mm (12″ × 10.5″).

Thank you.
