I would like to replace mine to but I have no good way of cutting it out, maybe a new table band saw is in my future.

Enigma8750 said it was just held on by plastic rivets. if they're rivets you could just drill them out, right? does anyone have a pic of the backside of the panel? maybe a closeup of the actual rivets?

at 7:28, the guy starts talkign about it a bit. says it was a really tight fit, but you can get it in there.

The plastic rivets are slightly mushroomed at the end. You could possibly push them out from the back to front and then once 1/2 of them are out You would be able to just pull the rest out by pulling slightly on the windows.
If your careful you might be able to save the rivets for the next window but I would bet that at least one would break.
PS. IF you want to drill them out that will work but drill from the front to the back. and only drill enough to remove the head and then stop. But it should not be nessesary. Actually a very small pair of needle nose pliers would do the trick.

Also thanks KEV B for the Intel on the Nibbler. I was very impressed with the orange backed hole at the top. Really Clean. Thanks Alot.

I took out some of my plastic "rivets" last night. They were easy to take out and put back in. I actually don't think you'd break em if you took em out but maybe I was just too gentle.

Yeah they are really simple to take out. There is two parts to them, you just push the bottom through a bit and it sort of releases it mushroom status then you can just pull them out.

One more question...sorry . Could anyone recommend some quality 140mm fans for replacements? The medium speed Scythe Kazes I mentioned above were the best I could find in terms of air movement and noise (rated at 62 CFM and 26dB), but still fall short of the 120mm R4s in performance...should I just get R4s for the intake and top exaust as well? It'll be cheaper and, on paper, will perform better than any 140mm fans I've found on the internet.

I'm ordering the parts next week and building it within the next 2-4 weeks, so I'll keep everyone posted!

I would like to tell you that i know something about 140mm fans. I don't I know that if you make these changes to the fans you will loose a lot of red lighting as the lighting in the case come from the fans. The fans that you mentioned sound incredable especially at 26 db. For that CFM Thats great. The stock fans are not barn burners but they are silent. Also if you decide to put new fans in this case, do it first as you will not have room to do anything once your MB is installed.
