Also, does anyone know where i can get some colored plexi glass? The more im looking at the design i have drawn out. Plexi glass would fit it a little better. Was thinking maybe some lightly smoked stuff. Or, can i even get anything like that pre-made?

Here's a dark gray (item# 2074): Delvie's Plastic

And here's it in use (Scroll down a tiny bit, he used the 1/4" I believe): http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showpost.php?p=6866048&postcount=127

I dislike mesh panels. They completely annihilate airflow. There's no "flow" throughout the case anymore. Just massive uncontrolled leaks.
That and it makes your fans louder.

Some Vinyl shops (sign printing, etc) *might* have something like that. when i worked at a 3d prototyping place, we cut vinyl, acrylic, mdf, ....CF...kevlar eek.gif ..all with a laser cutter/engraver. we custom cut whatever we wanted basically.

performance pc's, i think has colored acrylic.

Yeah, wasn't prepared for how big it would be (compared to my old Big Typhoon) but does the job nicely

alright well. i picked up some acrylic. a 16x20" piece with a light tint to it for $7.00 at a place called streamwood plastics not too far from my house.

So, I have the plexi. does anyone else have any suggestions for a window design? Otherwise I will probably go with the one I drew up.

I'm just getting ready to move my existing setup into a 690 ii advanced and i was looking for some advice on fans.

My setup will be as follows:

Q6600 2.4 GHz stock
4 x 1GB OCZ Platinum DDR2 800 ram
Asus maximus formula special edition mobo
4 x 1TB sata hd's
1 x 250 gig sata hd
Antec earth watts 650 watt power supply
EVGA Geforce GTS 450 GPU
sata dvd burner and a card reader.

I've got the stock fan configuration of back, top and front, and i have 2 120mm fans that i'm wondering if i should install. Any suggestions as to the most beneficial locations? I was thinking of doing 1 on the hard drive cage inline with the front fan and possibly 1 on the bottom.

Once i get everything installed i will post pics in this thread.

Thanks

Your 450 has a stock cooler? If so, your idea is good but if you have an internally exhausting gpu you might wanna change that fan from the hhd cage area to the side panel. Anyways, one fan on the lower side panel is usually good in most setups (also depends on your cpu cooler mode and position). wink.gif

Talking about fans, has anyone tried installing a pair of Thermalright TY-140 on top of the old CM690? They are 153mm wide and I was wondering if they would fit ok or would conflict with the top panel plastic latches. confused.gif

Tried measuring last night but, due to my present fans being there (and my laziness to remove them) I couldn't do it effectively. Although it looks like it would be ok...
