I don't know how many times I've caught myself just sitting here, staring at the window on this 700D computer case and wondering, "why did they make such a weird looking window for this thing?"
Why the strange shape? Why expose the power supply compartment and all of that wiring? Plus the hdd trays in my 800DW? How the Hell can I fix this?
Squaring the top right side of the window cut out and making a new window is one thing, but modding a completely new window in a new solid side panel, with the window ending at the top of the psu tray and squared at the top right side, is quite another, difficult undertaking.
I have the solid side panel that came with this case, I got the windowed one during a MicroCenter sale for one cent extra when I bought this 700D, and I have no idea how I'd go about cutting it for a more sane looking window. It's very heavy for its size so I imagine it's quite hard to cut. Especially since I have no tools to do it with. Not even any to just square off the top right side. No companies around here that do machining, either. The only welding shop down here went out of business.
The only easy fix I can come up with is to use a piece of blackout film, like is used on limousines, to hide the cpu compartment. I've got a feeling that would look completely retarded, though.
Hopefully, the next version won't look so strange. Failing that, then I doubt I'll choose Corsair again. Something I really don't want to do!
