not withought modding. to get 2 to fit you would have to cut out the exitsing mounting brackets and make a new one that holds 2x120mm fans. give me a few moments. I will post pictures of mine.

Ok, of you take the plastic front bezel off the case you have the front face of the chassis itself. There you have the mounting points for your 120 or 140mm fans. This mounting area is raised a little bit.

To be able to mount 2 fans you will need to take a dermel and cut that entire raised mounting section out. Then make a custom bracket like this and rivet it on.



I myself used 26 gauge aluminum. But you will want to use a 26-22 gauge steel as it is sturdier.

Here how the finished product will look.

To those who have done a window mod, what would be the best way? I'm not planning to do it until I go home for spring break, so I have some time to plan. I'd like to keep the overall side as flat as possible, not just cut a hole and bolt on some plexi over it. Also, where could I get some decent led strips? I don't want to have to hassle with soldering if I can avoid it.

I don't want to have to hassle with soldering if I can avoid it.

best way to do it is grab some paper and a pencil and start brainstorming ideas of shapes and sizes. Once you have a design picked out, grab some painters tape and tape over the entire panel. Get a straight edge and a pencil and start drawing your design out on the tape. Once you have the window drawn out on the panel the way you want it, grab a thin point sharpie and outline the lines you will be cutting. And start cutting.

Cutting it is easiet done with a dremel or a jigsaw. sometims both. I myself used a dremel with the carbide cutting disks to cut everything. then the grinding attachments to clean everything up and finally the fine finish granding bits to do a final clean up of everything. Once its all cout out and your hapy with it, remove all excess painters tape and clean the panel with some warm soapy water. And paint.

Applying the plexi window...well there are a few ways of doing this. The fastest way is some thin HD double sided tape on the inside of the panel. That is what I myself did. However I have also seen people drill through the panel and plexi and use alen head screws and nuts to hold the plexi in place. mounting at that point is completely up to you and what look your after.

Most importantly, TAKE YOUR TIME AND DO NOT RUSH. It will take time to get a clean job and finish everything off nicely and make sure your wearing safetly glases and a fase/dust mask when cutting.

check out my rig photos. Theyre note the most up to date but theres one that shows the window.

I will also try to find pics of the process of when I cut the window. Their floating somewhere on tehse forums, I'm pretty sure in this thread too. Ill update with those pcis when I find them.

EDIT:
Here are links to a few pictures of my side window. They're scattered between a few links. But scroll through them and take a look.

2x140mm will only fit if you cut into/remove material from the bottom of the 5.25" drive bays. 2x120mm fit with just about 1mm of clearance(at least thats how they fit for me).
