No artisans/manufacturers are making a clear window for it yet, but there are several tutorials on how to do it including this one:
http://www.mnpctech.com/casemodblog/2012/09/21/case-mod-guide-modify-corsair-vengeance-c70-with-clear-view-window/
A member also made a video, but I can't find it right now.

even if its the XSPC EX 240 rad? (275 mm)

i don't have the tools and materials, let alone skill to make a window. (which is why i'll gladly buy one) but if no one is making one i could at least flip the window right? (so that the fan holes are either on the right or the bottom)

The window is slightly rectangular, so you'll only be able to flip them to the front, it won't rotate 90*

My HX650 is 150mm in length, it's the old one.

Yup, you can flip the window--although I did that and I think airflow suffered severely and it only looked moderately better. here is the picture of what it looked like for me:



The tools you need to make one are just a drill and an acrylic cutting knife (which is actually a tool that scores the surface enough that you can snap the acrylic on a straight line. I tried it once and I got hasty with my drilling and the acrylic shattered, but if you take your time with it it should be ok. thumb.gif

I'm looking forward to posting some pictures in here once done smile.gif

I bought a smoked acrylic window at my local glass shop for 20 bucks, the stock window has small post molded into it on all the mounting holes so the new window i got is 1/8 thick and then i bought some really small black rubber washers at Lowes and put them on the screws then the new window mounts perfect using the original screws and window trim.
you can see mine in my profile.

Yep, I flipped mine. Looks A LOT better. Just unscrew the screws on the back.

Yeah a 275-280mm radiator will fit down the bottom with a 180mm PSU or less. It'll be tight At 180mm but it'll fit, 160mm is more appropriate but then you're limited in capacity. Honestly though you want it vertical like mines positioned or with the HDD cages in and against them. Fits a lot better.

And for those that wanted to know I use PrimoChill 1/2 ID 3/4 OD tubing. Best I've found for bends that's nice and thick.

considering one of the 45mm or 60mm thick alphacool rads in the bottom with ports to psu side. i do feel it would be really tight according to the above picture and XSPC's EX240 scheme (just add to the 5mm and its the UT60)

also, if i won't be able to do that bottom rad, what are my option of mounting a HDD + SSD in a ODD drive? (since i'll use a rad in the front)

There are lots of cool places to velcro an ssd to show it off (such as the side of your remaining 5.25" bays). To mount 3.5" drives in 5.25" bays I recommend an adapter of this type:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/15856/hdc-93/Akust_525_Bay_to_35_HDD_Adapter_Noise_Reducer_-_Black_AV00-0100-AKS.html?tl=g34c273s852

It mounts two 3.5" drives into 1 5.25" bay.

couldn't i just screw it somehow to the drive bays? pictures indicate that it looks possible (if that screwless mechanism can be removed...)
also, "of your remaining 5.25" bays" sounds like i brutally cut them tongue.gif
