Going to wait for these guys to do their video.The stuff they have on their website makes me think this will be an awesome window,
and it will be a guide that hopefully any of us can do.

Mnpctech's Modder, Bill Owen plans to share a step by step video tutorial on modifying your CMII factory panel for a custom window. No ETA on this release, but he stated sometime this summer it will be shared on our YouTube channel here, http://www.youtube.com/user/MonsterMawd

No word on Mnpctech offering a clear panel yet...

On a seperate question does the fan controller , light switch control remember the previous setings beween reboots etc?

A fellow modder who posted his work on evga here
http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=1505028&mpage=1
is now selling his system ***??

That seems like a high price,, no?
post #1413 of 5402
for the looks and the parts is my main issue with that sell....for the parts alone I wouldn't think about buying that build even for the window at all. My personal (in progress) build fully water cooled with 2 rads and like 13 fans will be around the same price and I get to personally build it and make it look how I want it to look.

In my mind no not worth it to me ur paying for the custom look inside really nothing more.

Not worth over 1.6k even with the 6990, case, custom extensions, small window and white modular interior in my opinion. Give it an A though for the back cable management though and the looks alone.

wish I was sponsored to build this build of mine lol would make it way cheaper lmao.
post #1416 of 5402
Yea... definitely wouldn't say that build is worth that much. "$900 in the case and wiring alone"? Uuh... dude... only $350 of that was the case. If you somehow managed to spend another $450 on WIRES... there's something messed up in your head.

Kinda think it looks a little too tacky, anyway. Why take a beautiful black case and throw some seriously contrasting white on the INSIDE? Not to mention the window is rather pointless. You see the top of the video card, and part of the CPU heatsink. WOO! Thought the idea of a window was to be able to see *****?

I will say two things though... i'm curious as to what he did with the hot swap bay cables... and i'm curious as to how he managed to snap the front of one of the hot swap bays off.

didn't really feel like reading the whole thing.. just noticed it when i was looking at the pics in the NVidia forum. My only guess is that he had the same issue i had at first, but he wasn't nearly as patient and observant as i was. He probably had a similar hard drive like i have where the top isn't rectangular... having rounded sections taken out of the top half of the drive along the edges to make it more contoured to the internal bits i guess. The spring clips that hold the drive down inside the hot swap bays don't like those that much. They'll go in, but coming out is a different story. Had to take the hot swap bays entirely out, and pop the spring clips out of the front part of the bay to get the hard drive out.

As any builder knows it is always tough to put a price on something you spent a lot of time and energy building yourself - I suspect that is why the price is what it is. Overall, it looks like a nice build and I am sure he is very proud of it.

Personally I think the window should be a bit larger and if CM does come out with one for $60 I don't think they will have a tough time finding buyers for it.

Just adding that I'd gladly pay $60 for the window side panel. Just got the case and building my system this weekend.
