And about the front, i wanted that the the lower 120 were more to the bottom or the 140 were more centralized, this way, they gonna be perfect!
And, guys, do you really use the RPM shift on the Dremel? It's look like useless to me ): But, of course, i'm a newbie on modding

Those of us that have been at this game for a lot of years won't tell you to buy a more expensive model, unless that's what you really need.

The variable speed is a very good thing when it comes to working on different materials like metal and plastic.

On the mesh thing, do you actually have the case in front of you yet, or are you still waiting on it to arrive?

The hole size in the mesh is just wayyy too big and it looks really cheap.

If they had done the mesh panel like on the phantom, it'd be OK, but to meet a price point, they went with cheap and easy and it looks like it.

OH THE SIDE.

yeah...the side looks odd and really, does anyone else have a cavitation/airplane sound with a side fan???

A few I've tried sound like a very quiet airplane, or in other words, I hear a buzzing frequency that all my other fan ports don't make, and I know it's because of the close proximity to a lot of metal and those holes...

The one that is hard to notice is on rubber mounts (further from grille) and is a Gelid Silent fan (quiet in any circumstance).

Also get rid of the removeable hdd bracket clips since your not using it. theyre only held in place by a single philips head screw!
BTW your cpu cooler is a F$#@% MONSTER! LoL
you are right , i am bad at cable mangment , really lazy to rework at it most thing i care about is my cpu OCs nice and my far cry 3 runs good xD

It's a smaller, simple case, don't try to turn it into a toddler in a tiara.
Darlene

I laughed so hard when I read this. I'm really interested in turning my side panel into one big window but really don't have an idea where to start apart from buying a dremel.

about the mesh looking cheap and easy, I agree when compared to other NZXT case meshing.

I put a 140MM LED side fan on and when I turn the fan controller to high it causes a noise from air flow. A wurrring noise rolleyes.gif best I can describe it.

I so badly want to cut then entire side out and put a big window. I really can't stand vents + Windows. Either vent or window but not both...

The process by which they make the side panel on the 410 is significantly different, read less costly, than the phantom or switch series side panels.

Along with that, is that it gets really flimsy, really quickly, the more of it you cut out of it for a window.

The best way to put a sizable window on a 410, is to use 1/4" acrylic, and drill and tap it and use something nice looking like button head allens to secure it.

Here's a pic of mine, it's one of the earliest, and many here have been added since with a number of variations.

If I had the tools to do this I would but I would leave the HDD bays hidden, just my preference. Looks really good though. Thanks for the idea.

Darlene,

Thank you for sharing. I love the work you do and am some what inspired. I don't remember where I saw it but someone cut out the vent and followed the lines of the already installed window and just enlarged it to fill the entire space. If I didn't want bolts or screws sticking out my side panel do I have many options?
