Though I still don't have all the parts for it yet, I've been busy making a side window. So here's the end result, still need to join the grommet/piping edges, so it looks a bit unfinished. The window is of tinted "smoky" acrylic, so it looks black without any source of light and tinted-transparent with light shining through.
I'm going to have white LED lights inside - either in a form of a LED strip attached around the underside of the "roof" or through the front 200mm white LED fan. Probably the LED strip. Ordered 140mm white Spectre Pro fan for the exhaust as well.
Raw window cut:

Acrylic window attached with strong double-sided foam tape (as well as piping, held together by 3M thin double-sided tape)

Back side of the right side panel:

Case with my phone in it providing white LED light

Side window with some lights on



Missing a power supply (Come on, Silversone ST45SF-G) and graphics card to put everything together. Also still on the fence between i5 3570K for $190 vs. i7 2700K for $250.

Looks good mate smile.gif

And I see we went for the same acrylic - Its a fine choice!

Eleven what kind of molding is that? The one I have does not work so well for corners.
Anywho add me please.





In the process of finishing crimping the cables and waiting on my mdpc package. Also might consider cutting another window on the other side.

Dang it, now I've got something else to think about. Is there anything that I would be missing out on if I went with Sandy instead of Ivy? We don't need PCie 3.0 because it's a 16x slot, so what other things are there?

EDIT: Never mind, remembered about the awesome deal with 3570k's and motherboards, that's enough to convince me to go Ivy, and besides, if I really need it, then I can always just buy a 3770k and sell the 3570k.

That deal also works for 2700K, at least at Microcenter (-$50 off with any K-series chip). I got the i5, but the idea of an i7 in a mini build sounds fun, so it took me a long time to decide in the store (and I'm still not 100% settled). One thing I figured was the resale value, if I decide to sell in a year. On one hand, it's easier to impress people on Craigslist that a rig with an i7 is a good one, but on the other, i7 2700k will be at least 2 generations behind at that point (Haswell will be out) - so that argument in the end pushed me to save $65 (after tax) and go for i5 3570k.

Plus I got my 2600K for $200 + tax a few months ago, so 2700K for $250 is not as good of a deal!

It's actually just storm window gasket piping... It got it for free considering it a temporary solution, but it works okay as it turned out. I couldn't get the edges of the window cut in a rounded manner, so I had to cut 4 strips and join them like a photo frame. I actually decided a rectangular window was better, because it matches the front bay cover.

What piping did you use? The kind from FrozenCpu? That was going to be my original route.

I need to learn how to sleeve cables =/ My PSUs always ruin pretty windows.

I'm thinking that i might abandon building a water loop for my prodigy. there's no way to fit a fan controller and a rad without removing all the HDD bays, so keeping a water loop silent would be a lot more difficult.

I'm still on the fence, but if ican get a good air cooler and some decent fans it would be much cheaper than going water and would most likely be quieter if i add a fan controller.
Only problem is that I went with the asrock board, so most cpu coolers will interfere with the PCIe. I was hoping it might fit a megahalems with a single fan. anyone have input on this?
otherwise, i could could a h80, but something about the h80 instead of the h100 is just upsetting...

You can fit a fan controller if you are into modding it. My plan is to mount my fan controller onto the side panel. It's very hard for me to go back to air cooling hence why I settled with watercooling.
