OK, so I dig the Mesh side panel on my sniper but want to see through it better when I some lighting to it next week. So I made my own acrylic/mesh panel... if anyone is interested here is how I did it... first I purchased a cheap poster frame that you can pick just about anywhere

next i used the dust filter on as a template on the acrylic glass that came with the poster, I used a sharpie marker and kept the plastic film on it untill it was all ready to go.

then carfully used a exacto blade and cut out the window for the panel

be carfull because this stuff cracks easy, don't try to snap it out once you have cut into it. use the exacto blade and cut all the way through. this took me a couple rounds on each side to get all the way through.

make sure it fits nice... i had to file on edge of mine just a hair to get it to fit perfectly. then remove the film and TA-DA. You have a much more visable mesh siding to your sniper case, less chance of dust getting in, and hopfully creates more of a "wind tunnel" inside the case.


also i cranked my fans up all the way and I zero vibration sounds/ratteling.
anyways thought some of you might be interseted in this cheap way to tweak your sniper that takes only about 20 min and 10 bucks

well, the idea is to be able to see through the mesh better by eliminating the dust filter from the side panel at the same time preventing dust from getting into the case and hopefully creating better airflow in the case. I'm going to set up some lighting in my case this weekend and I want to be able to see in my case pretty good without the full on clear window.... anyways I will post pics when its all said and done

Take the cross bars out as well as the mesh and use only the acrylic...thats what I plan to do since CM will not get me the acrylic side panel.

Thats a good idea to remove the cross bars any suggestions on what kind of tool to use to do that with? also if you plan on cutting out the cross bars and getting rid of the mesh side panel I would suggest a better piece of acrylic glass from some place. I know home depot and lowes sells the 1/8 inch thick stuff that you could buy a panel for about 10 bucks but you will probably need something better than a exacto blade to cut it.

it would be cheaper to just order this-if you can.
CM Storm Sniper Transparent Side Window Panel - Brand New


acrylic can get expensive.
i bought one so i have 1 with acrylic and 1 with mesh.
winter and summer sides-lol

a dremmel (rotory tool) with a cutoff wheel or a jigsaw with a fine tooth blade will work

Thread Starter 
I also have both clear and mesh side panels, I'm thinking about using my mesh as my other side panel, not sure why but want to see how it looks. This case should come standard with both clear and mesh panels, that would truly make it the ultimate case.

Okay turns out the panels lock differently so they cannot be reversed
