I ordered my window from frozenCPU. It's a 12x12. If that's what you're asking, then yes... it's a DIY kit. You either order the side panel from Coolermaster, or order the acrylic window and do it yourself.

Trog,

What did you pick up your side panel for...Price? Ease of install? I am curious on what condition it arrives in. I have heard of folks getting the CM clear side panel and it arriving in horrid condition (note: that was the "official side panel" and not the kit you are using). Also if you could let us know how easy it was to install and what tools you needed that would be awesome. Pictures are a must!!!!! I am very interested to see how it turns out!

I purchased the 12x12 window kit from FrozenCPU as opposed to the entire side panel, but I'll get pics of the unboxing/install and post it step by step. Xgunther pointed me towards this kit and it looked great in his 690.

I actually bought two kits. a 12x12 for my 690 and a 10x10 for the 330. As far as I can tell, installation is nothing more than cutting the side panel, installing the u-channel, and popping the window into the u-channel. It apparently holds the window in place.. as opposed to having to mount the window with double-sided tape, etc.

The 12x12 was $18 and the 10x10 was $12. I went this route because of the DIY aspect of the install.. not that the CM panel doesn't look good... it does. I just wanted the hands-on approach.

Just the same, I'll cross post the window install both here and in my build log.

Guttboy, you're my hero for using proper grammar

Did you use a jigsaw to cut the side panel for the window? Also is it hard to keep a straight line> I was thinking of doing this to an old HP case, basically mod the life out of it, but when it comes to straight lines I'm bad.

I haven't even started yet. I just ordered the kit yesterday. It should be here by mid-week. As far as what I'm using to cut the panel, I have a bit of luck with a dremel.. but wouldn't be against using a jigsaw. Because the u-channel covers the cut, it doesn't have to be 100% straight. That's another reason I dig this particular kit. There's overlap between the side panel, the u-channel, and the window itself.

Thanks for the information Trog! I have been debating which way to go on the side panel. On the one hand a pre-built panel is EASY but on the other hand a DIY gives you the feeling of pride that comes with making it yourself!

yah. I also have some modders mesh coming in that I'm tempted to mount behind the window. Neat visual...

I guess next step is to find a CCFL that I like and get going with that.


I'll keep you guys posted on the window.
