If you look at FEAR's side window mod



Thanks for the help, but maybe it's too crazy of a mod.. I mean my understanding from that vid is.. I need a nail/bolt... and a that turning thingy to make the thread on the plexi..so I can place the bolt there? And I use the turning thingy to make the nail -> bolt?

Hmm..

Looks like he has used 4 rivets to hold the window in place....if you drill holes in sort of the same places and then use a tap and die set to thread the hole, you could then used screws to hold the window in place, that way it would be easier to get into the case if you had to change anything.

Hope this helps

Cap screws? Hmm, I'm so new to "construction/modding."

I wish I could just pay someone..but it probably won't be as rewarding as doing it myself

don't worry about it...you can use any screw you like...the screws Fear used just have an hexagonal socket to remove...they sit flatter than thumb screws would but need an allen key or something similar to remove

Have a go yourself, there is nothing that can't be fixed with a little bog and some paint. And as you said, it is so much more rewarding

yeah 3m double sided is not going to be easy to remove and after you do a few times it will start to loose it stick

well i just did my super ghetto (but livable) temp plexi side panel. As i said this is temp until the HAF Black edition sides are in stock (CM said a month or so). I sold my stock side to a friend for a project so i've been sideless for a while or else i would have left the stock side on.

All it is is a 19-5/8" x 20" sheet of thin plexi. Lowes cut it for me to my requested size (they will as long as its 90deg cuts). If i did it again i would have said maybe 19-3/4" and 20-1/8" to fill the gaps abit more.

I lined it with black electrical tape. The back side slides into the slot on the case. The front bottom and top i used small pieces of doublesided velcro and it holds perfect.

So as i said, with a slightly larger cut on the plexi it would fit snug and is a viable temp solution for the moment.













note: the lights are red led bars on top and bottom which for some reason look pink in these pics Also the inside is actually black

I like your shroud. Is that covering a HDD and cooler combo?

Its covering the 2x120 Rad. That way it sucks the air in from the bottom and shoots the air out the back hole (removed the bottom PSU cover thing). Keeps only cool air going through the Rad and keeps the hot air out of the system. You can kind of see the Rad in the 1st and 2nd pics

The HDD's are in the 5.25" bays using:





$5 on newegg.



Or were you talking about the front shroud infront of the big fan? no that is just shroud to direct airflow into the fan better. Results in a more even output (per the hand test, no idea really )

Thanks for the recommendation! What size would you think I need for the back? Since I don't have both my side panels.

I assume (and you know what they say about assume) that its the same as the front size wise. so 2 sheets at the large size i recommended. I do not guarantee that the large size will fit (should be near perfect if my eye is right) but the size i cut it to is a hair small so there are slight gaps.

At lowes it is $14 for 1 28"x30" sheet of this thickness plexi (no idea what but its prob the only one that size at $14 and most of them down here cut it for you. Home depot down here will not cut it at any location i've been to, only lowes. If you have to end up cutting it yourself you will get this plexi scoring tool. You score the strait line about 30 times (some can do it once and it snaps, i normally do more then needed so it snaps clean and quick) and then you put it on a sharp table edge and snap the plexi.



If you use thicker plexi you can use a jigsaw but i wanted thinner to fit in the slot on the back and also it is cheap. This thin plexi will just crack and shatter unless you have some very fine table jig saw setup

I really appreciate you taking time to help me out.

I would hope they cut it @ Burbank Empire Center Lowe's. I figured I could use Velcro to hold the plexi up & hope I can use the same size for each side panel.
