You can buy a new side panel or use the money you got from new egg to buy your own sheet of acrylic and make it a custom panel

Ok, up date, just got off of the phone with Thermaltake.. My intentions were to buy a replacement panel but they don't carry replacement parts for the armor+ because it is to new of an item is what i was told... Well it looks like RMA time.

On a brighter note i will be getting more pics to yall asap..

I don't like this case, it makes your tuniq look small..




No jk, it's fine, just don't really like the top.
Hope to see what you come up with.

Greetz! ;-)

Ok this is crazy $36 to ship out to thermaltake and no guarantee that i will be getting it replaced... I should have just returned it to Newegg and got something in town here instead... I personally would suggest this route to anyone that wants to buy such a huge case, to buy it in town or take you chances having it damaged and not being able to inspect it before bringing it home...

I personally find it ridiculous that thermaltake doesn't even have replacement parts for this case. It has been on the market for a while now..Ive seen reviews from customers as old as January.... The only way thermaltake now can satisfy me will be to send me a replacement... If not, I as a first time buyer will not return again and suggest the same to anyone I speak to about cases at the least...

Ok here are some more pics

I decide I was going to put the X_FI 5.25 bay insert at the top... I dont recommend it, it fits way to tight, move it down one or two and things are good..

next I decide to put the floppy in up top and that went well..

Good looking on your rig!! Let me know how that OCZ PS works out for you as you push your rig I have been pleased with Thermaltake so far, I hope that they do right by you. Please keep this thread up to date so we know how things are going! Take care.
