Antec 900 - Full Window Panel?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well, this may seem kinda stupid, but does anybody know a quick fix for making the door of the Antec 900 a full panel window? I don't want the mesh.

I live in a fairly dusty house (blame the cat). And so to keep my computer cooling air clean, i built myself a box to hold a passive electrostatic air filter so my pc on gets only ultra-clean air. However, if I leave the mesh door panel there, it completely defeats the purpose of the air filter.

Is there a quick plexiglass panel out there i can swap in?

Or a replacement door that doesn't have mesh?

k thx, bie bie

If you're comfortable with tools, you can cut one out of acrylic. Just mount it from the inside of the panel if you don't want to drill mounting holes.

I am working this liltte mod tonight. I am going to use a nibbler and cut out a square from the side window and mount a sheet on acryllic (blue color) on the side, and then mount 2 120mm fans to that. I will take pictures so you can see what I am doing.

I am going to mount it to the back of the side panel with some high quality doubled sided tape (3M) but I am also going to run rubber stripping along the square that I cut out for looks. I don't like seeing screws on the side of the window.

Yeah but CD is so cal-i and we are the students of his cal-i school, so we must learn the ways of the master. Thus, learning it the noob way makes us less noobs and then we can win the internet.

But seriously, CD is good. I get great ideas from this entire site, but until you do it yourself, you can say anything is easy.

hmmmm i'm thinking maybe i should just not build it.
i thought there might be a quick part swap for the plexi considering how popular the 900 is.

is there maybe a compatible door? so i can start looking for trades?
all i really want is a just a simple square window like this
