Corsair 650D Side Panel WITHOUT CLIPS?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does anyone with experience think they're willing to try making a side panel for the 650D that uses a solid door without the clips? I would love a panel with screw mounts like most cases. I find the clips ugly. Or if it has been done before, could somebody link me?

You would have to screw the panel in from the side then as opposed to the back panel right? That might not look cool.

not necessarily. leave out the locking mechanism on the side and just screw it into the back portion like any other case.

i.e.)

I'll have to look at this when I get home. You might able to utilize the three slots to make a hinge for the side panel. Almost making it into a door. I guess....

Did anything ever come of this, I'd be very interested in knowing I feel the Window is much too low with the side clips. I love the 650D but I really feel like a side Window should only display the motherboard tray by default.
