Some places sell the Chenmings with custome side windows. I think they make have a little name for this series they call the Chenming eliets

also these are sweet. If i had to do another watercool setup on a tighter budget I'd go with these for sure cuz they will last.

I have the black Chenming 601. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811125475

I love it. Tons of room. Heavy but you aint gonna break it. One thing they dont show you is that there is a fan in the sidewindow. Tons of modding possibilities. I want to Wc it when I find the time.

Same here. After I get my case, i'll have to wait awhile for my wc setup.. hopefully by then it'll go down...

does the chenming have a removable motherboard plate?

-edit-

I see the 79.99 one has one, but the 69.99 or 54.99 one doesnt.

I love Chemming and Cheiftec cases. I got one of those Ultra Aluminus glossy black towers, it's got to be made by Cheiftec...They got to be one of the most bang for buck ever made...I keep trying to nudge X towards them but I dont think he likes the looks of them....Would be a nice econo box for WC gear....But you got to like the look....

yep that is correct.

Personally I don't see the what the big deal is about having a removable motherboard tray. how often do you want to take your MB out?

The mobo tray is just a nice perk. it makes it alot easier just to take it out and work on stuff.....Some like them and some don't...Depends on how much you like to play with your stuff....PS- If you get one without the mobo tray be sure and check on which water block you will be using, some of them you have to take out the mother board to mount them, make sure you mount that kind before you screw down the board...

I had to take my MB out to mount my RBX just because I was using the Zalman bracket for the cooler I use to have. But the first time you install it you have to take the MB out because of the screws and nuts you gota use for the bracket behind the MB. But after that you'll never have to take the MB out to take the waterblock off unless your installing some new kind of cooling devise.

In a small way it would help, but its only 9 screws. But I go through the little extra effort for a sturdy and quality case.
