Like they bought the clearsided window? Or they cut into the side panel and put one in there?

Yea, they purchased a plexiglass with appropriate dimensions and then cut the side panel to specified dimensions and most used some type of edgetrim for neatness and fastened either with double sided tape or screws/rivets. Really not that hard as long as you have necessary tools.

The Coolermaster "official" windowed side panel is so hard to find, it would be easier to make one yourself. Probably cheaper too, if you have the tools.

Here is my baby. Haven't done any mods yet. Not sure if I want to put a window in the side or not. I have added a fan to optical drive bays. If you look close enough you can see the clear zip-ties I used to attach the fan mount from the bottom of the case.

Here's some pics of the inside of the case. I didn't bother taking pics of the outside, as everyone knows what the stock case looks like.



I'm gonna dremel some holes right behind the mother board so the sata cables don't have to run so far down, and also, so my 4 pin doesn't have to run all the way up to the top hole. Wish I could get rid of the blue IDE cable there. I just need to shell a few bucks and get 4 500-gig sata drives and put em in a raid 5. I know I don't have the greatest video card, but I don't really game, and I primarily use my system as a Tivo. I would highly recommend the Avermedia PCI-X tuner to anyone wanting to create a Media Center PC.



Here are all my cables behind the motherboard tray. There aren't so many because most of them run along the bottom, and I have a modular psu. That usb cable goes to my cd rom drive. I keep meaning to order a sata one, but keep forgetting. Since I have 2 IDE HDs and only one IDE connector on my system board, I am using an IDE/SATA-to-USB adapter on DVD/RW drive. It works great, and is still is bootable in my bios. There is no slow down reading/writing to cds or dvds. I tried connecting it to a hard drive in my old case, but it was way to slow writing to the hard drive.

I had a clear acrylic case before this one, and I love this case. The acrylic case was a pain in the ass, because anytime I wanted to adjust my hardware I had to remove 12 screws from each side panel. I am planning on dremeling the acrylic case, and creating a much smaller enclosure for a micro-atx setup(socket 754 turion) I have, and will be putting in my car. I just gotta order the dc-dc power supply and the touch screen.

Anyways, thanks for taking the time to listen to me rant. I am planning on painting my case, but have not decided on colors yet. I will update the pics when I do decide. [/rant]

Might as well add me to the list. Satin black paint job. Cut out all honeycomb blocking airflow, metal and plastic, installed a second fan above the optical drive to blow air toward cpu, plan on adding a second at the back of the drive bays to create a tunnel that sends air straight to the cpu. cut hole in the back to send out cpu variable fan speed controller, routed wires appropriately (fully wired in the image). Still to do: add window to panel and paint both panels. If I can figure out how to do it, i will also be ghosting my optical drive and sending a button up to the i/o panel. Bought a 300 series dremel, a can of auto primer, a can of satin black, did all the work (first time with a dremel) in one afternoon. After it's completely done I'll post a log. Anyways that's my build, add me to the club!


still waiting on my other two gigs to complete rma process and be sent to me, and waiting on 3 more s-flex fans. The only thing that makes noise in my case now is my cpu fan, and it doesn't help that the side panel has the honeycomb so the sound passes through so easily. Hopefully with a window and no fans, the pc will hover somewhere right at ambient noise level.

BTW, Nice rig.

Hi guys..

Here is my CM 690 with my other work related stuffs. I had basically added 7 (120mm) Antec Tricool Fan and 1 (120mm) CM 690 original BLUE LED fan at the drive bay. I had also added a 80mm Antec Tricool Fan for my CPU heatsink (AF 7 Pro).. I really like this case as it can keep all of my components cool even when I run my Q6600 at 3.6Ghz 24/5 (I only keep it ON all the time for 5 work days after that it is normal usage)

Just add me in the "Un-Modded" section.. Glad to be able to join this club!!

P.S.
Remember the spelling is YahonMaizosz
