lol im not talking about the actual side panel im talking about the black plastic trim piece that goes around the circumference of the window.. The 500r side panel is perfectly fine. and by in far the trim piece is fine as well. its just i prefer something a little stronger is all as im afraid with me being me, that i will eventually drop something and it will catch on the trim and chip or crack it. The trim piece does not add to the structural integrity of the side panel and doesn't have to as the side panel with the window bolted on does a perfectly fine job at keeping ti rigid.. Which is why i want to replace the thin cheap piece of plastic with a smoked acrylic.

i was gonna say the same thing.
x-acto knife with blades ever so often. hold the blade firmly and once you feel that it's getting harder and harder to cut just replace the blade.

Hey guys! so my middle fan broke on the three stacked fans, i had actually cut the fans blades and turned them 90 degrees and epoxied them back on then flipped the fan backwards so it would rotate clockwise while pushing air forward instead of the standard counterclockwise and forward, which is why the stacked fans pushed a crap ton of air. but i think im going to have to give up on it unless i can find a 120mm fan that is made backwards. if anyone finds a fan that is like that please let me know!

here's a little update, probably the last one til i move to ny

I covered the backside of the case and put my badges on, lol i know its no longer sleek looking with the badges on there but i figured that the backside will be facing the wall most of the time so its not to bad, and i can always take them off.

and i did a little h100 mod wink.gif just covered it really lol, i thought about painting it but im not too sure, and im also thinking about putting white carbon fiber around the block. who knows...
