Photonmoo- Very impressive job on modding that side panel case. I really like it. You going to add UV Cathode in your case as stated earlier? Rep'd you for your hard work!

Enigma, how did you re secure the window to the panel? I have a sheet of plexi, and I am considering changing out the window in mine as well.

The outcome was realy nice, i want too do the same thing with my scout but clear Acrylic
Thankies I'd say a 3, using a rotary tool made it easy peasy...I was a bit worried it was going to crack, but it held up like a trooper...even when drilling.

Thankies I'll take a few extra pics. It's not really dark, it's more fluro, so it's bright hehe...It's not completely opaque either, but you can see through it a little bit.

This has to be the best example of a window mod i have seen for this case (thanks to bill owen). I want to do the window and use modders mesh as well, and maybe do some etching or some acrylic 3d work. Oh the ideas are abound, that why this thread is great!
I have a bit left over, so I'm going to attempt the logo, if it stuffs up, oh well it happens...but i'll sand the edges of the logo, and try and make it as pretty as possible

Yups, I have a 30cm cathode but it somehow cracked... , so I'm going to get 4x 10cm uv cathodes instead, to place around the case

You can use the the little black clip things which secured the original window, just pop them out with a screwdriver or pliers, and then reuse them...they're brilliant and look good.

Well I put my new window in. Nothing special, I just went with clear plexi. I did put a blow hole in it though for the fan. Much quieter now that I don't have those vents. I used a Roto Zip to cut the window. Makes quick work and doesn't melt the plastic. You just need to use a guide with the straight edges. It came out perfect.....but then I put a small crack in it drilling the screw holes for the fans. If I decide to make another one I am going to use much thicker plexi.

Now we know that the 5850 Crossfire combo does work in our case.. Another Quick Reference addition.

Woohoo, the 955 and 'a fan' finally arrived (after some ranting and raving at the couriers.. )

Lol, what's with AMD and forever changing the stock coolers? 5600, 6000, 940, 955...all had different stock coolers.

Just waiting on ram now, more fans, coolant, uv cathodes...
