Finally got my case yesterday and got my system re-built. First thing I did was make a new, clean window from some 1/8" acrylic at Home Depot, then I enlarged the factory hole for all the front-panel wires so the 24-pin power cord could fit through. I've still got some sleeving and wire management to do, but I'm pretty happy with my first rushed attempt. If anyone's interested, I can post the mini-worklog for the window. Just let me know. And on to the pics:









Suggestions/comments would be great. Oh, and I love this case. It's got the size and feel of the 900, but better cable management, tool-less drive bays, and a sturdy handle. My only complaint is that there wasn't enough room for me to mount my TRUE vertically. But looking at the airflow design for this case, it might work out better to be mounted horizontally. We'll see. Overall, well done, Cooler Master

I just bought one of these bad boys a few days ago, and they look fantastic.

Only problem for me is my cable management sucks. I'd never done it before, and it was getting late, so i just stuck the side panels back on and thought i'd just go back to it another day.

Then i found this thread off another website, so i'd like to thank you all for the pics you have posted, as its really gave me some ideas on how to make it better.


ps... what speeds do the stock fans run at? just cause i can't connect them to my motherboard, so i don't have any idea how fast *rpm* they are going.

glad the thread could help you out

and it looks like the fans run at 1200 rpm, according to this review. says it at the bottom of the page in the last 3 paragraphs

PS - welcome to the site! if you want, you can fill in your system specs (through the user control panel) so people can better help you out in the future if you have any more questions

thanks man. its really not that hard to make the window. only tools i used were a dremmel with a cutting wheel and a drill for the holes (could use a dremmel for that, too, actually). and i'm actually toying with the idea of tinting it with some cheap stuff from walmart or something. not sure yet, but i actually kinda like the tint

also, i want to add a false floor to hide the PSU and all the cables. kinda like what i did with my 900 in the first link in my sig

I want one of those break away fan connector on the side of that thermaltake. I bet you could buy it in their accessories thread on their site. I also Thought the same thing Path. They stole from the 560, the Storm Sniper and the Storm Scout and I love the fact that you can change the LED colors on the fly. the cable routing clips were also really neato. But If I bought that case I would have to mod it. Its too plain and lacks the charisma that the Storm has.. But that is my opinion.

Also Surfer, You can put all the pictures you want on this thread. That is what it is for. Thank for the intel on the new window and I like the clear. I thought about it. You are in Florida. I know there is a tint shop somewhere in town. Take out your window and clean it by hand with Dawn Dish washing liquid and water until all the dust is gone and then take it over to one of the tint shops in the area. Tell him you are entering the case in a competition and you may get a tinting for free if you say that you will put his name on your Thank you list. There is a Gold tint that used to be really popular but no one asks for it anymore. Tell him you want that.. Last time I did that the guy gave me 6 feet of it for free and it works great. I am still using it.

Thanks all.

alright, for anyone who's interested, heres the quick log for my window mod.

First off, here's the back of the plastic rivets holding the window on



They were incredibly easy to remove and replace. You just have to push down the center, and it de-mushrooms, and pops right out. I used a screwdriver



Then I traced out the pattern on 1/8" acrylic from Home Depot



After about 30 minutes with a Dremel, I've got the outline. I used a cutting wheel to get the shape, and a sanding drum to round off the corners and clean up the edges



Holes drilled, also using the original window as a template



Gotta be careful to drill slowly. I got going a bit fast, and here's the result. Luckily, its small enough to where the lip of the window hides most of the crack



Installed, and about to be riveted. Fits like a glove!



Happy with the results. The entire project took about an hour.





Hope this can help someone, because I tried looking for any projects that had been done like this before I started, and couldn't find anything

Noticed that crack in the plexi when you drilled it. I'll bet you have to drill really slow to not get the cracks.. Do you have any advice on drilling without the cracking?
