[Official] Corsair Vengeance C70 Gaming Case Owner Club - Page 86

Because the artist doesn't pay enough attention to detail. Still it's a lot better then the window they come with. It would be nice if Corsair came out with a aftermarket version something like this for those of us who would rather have a solid window instead of a bunch of holes in one.

Hey f0rteOC, is the light coming from the case or is there a led strip on the edge of the glass?

I didn't have my side panel attached to the case when I took the pics, its mainly the flash from the camera, but the fans on my Hyper 212 Evo have blue LEDs.
I was at Microcenter the other day, and was thinking of getting some light strips, but I decided to save my dollars for a new PSU, my HD 7850 needs more juice for a stable OC.

Thanks everyone... Cut some Acrylic last night and got the spacers today. Wired up the last of the HD's and LED Strips. I hope to have a few minutes tonight so I can snap some pictures. This was by far the most fun I have had on a build (picking parts, assembly, mods)

Hey guys, I want to do the window mod for my C70 but I don't know where to start.

What are all the tools I need? (All tools so only 1 trip to the hardware store!)

I don't like going too much because I end up spending a lot on random things. tongue.gif Anyway, thanks for this.

Also, should I use Acrylic or Plexiglass? Most people say Acrylic because it has better clarity and I'm almost inclined to agree. I'm not sure though if it's too weak. Also, this is basically my first window mod other than my 600T window mod, but I didn't do too much of the work on that. I had my dad do most of it for me but now I want to try for myself!

Acrylic is easier to machine than plexiglass. As long as your drill bit is nice and sharp you shouldn't have an issue with cracking. If I were doing mine by hand rather than by CNC I would drill the holes before cutting the sheet to final size as the holes are quite close to the edge and cracking is more likely to occur, but that's just me. The holes are 5mm for the 2 small alignment holes and 5.5mm for the 16 off screw holes, drilling them all to 5.5 will be absolutely fine though. Unless using a bench dril, anmd even then, your hole will come out bigger than the drill bit so 5mm should be big enough. You either need a plas-drill specially for plastic or a spur drill would also be okay. You could probably easily get away with using a standard jobber drill bit, just the point angle is less sharp and more likely to jump or vibrate, risking cracking. However you do it take it gently and let the drill do the work, don't try and force it through before it's had chance to cut.

I was thinking, if I wanted to buy a machine, how much would the cheapest, but good machine cost? Like good in terms of how well it will perform in this project. I also was wondering, why not just cut off the 16 holes that go outward on the black plastic things and just use Scotch double-sided tape (the 1008 or something like that by 3M) to keep on and same thing with the acrylic. Will it work or will it just ruin the case?
