Thanks Billy O!
Not gunna lie. i saw your window and was like i have to do that! lol
That fan on the side is functional but fuuugggglllllyyyyy!!!!!!

i really liked what Billy O did with his window and kept bump on the side but i didnt want to copy him as well i wanted a bigger window with more view.
So I Got the window cut out and the uchannel put on but i have no acrylic yet.

I had to use a dremel to cut that whole window out! It sucked! I will never do that again. even how clean it turned out, never again. lol.

It was almost a perfect job untill i dropped the dremmel and scratched the panel its nothing big. you might not even be able to see it in the pictures. its on the right side of the window. two little eyesores!
oh well. my first go.

Im having second thoughts on tinted acrylic.....Should I get clear acrylic or lightly tinted acrylic? What you guys think?

Looks great. I would do clear acrylic with your black/white. How many Dremel blades did you you use? What are you using to cover up your HDD bays?

Thanks billy. Your probobly right, im going to pick up some clear acrylic tomorow.
I actually went through 8 and a hlaf blades!!!!!! Thats including the one that snaped half way and shot into my face! Lucky i was wearing goggles! lol.
The side hdd cover is actualy some black acrylic cut to that shape with a dremel and chrome u channel to cover the cut. its held in the by a screw in 5.25 bay in behind. it isnt as solid as the frame but it also isnt moving around when i move case. i think it really cleans the case.

Now looking at watercooling.
hey billy is water cooling really that much of a hassle as some may say. I move my case alot. But Im really interested in taking that step now. I guess another question, will you always water cool your pc's?

Mmmm, those are some nice mods there guys, the camo job looks awesome... the bullet holes set it off nicely (I wish I had the skill to do it )

I think I might 'upgrade' my HAF to a HAF-X, just that means more room for more stuff = more money and more temptation.

8 blades isn't too bad for a window that size, haha. I think I may have to copy you with that acrylic, though I think I will cover my 5.25" bays, not the HDDs.

I went watercooled for the first time about three months ago and am very glad I did. A few points:

1. Be prepared to invest a lot of time in it, at least at first. When I first got my parts I built a loop with no PC parts on my kitchen table just to get comfortable doing everything for a weekend. Then it took a few hours to install my waterblocks, a few hours to get the loop together, 24 hours of leak testing, and about two weeks of running the loop before I was really comfortable with the loop. Even so I still plan to make changes when I clean the loop (changing the order, and maybe adding compression fittings for looks). That said, based on your system I'm guessing you have time to tinker with it.

2. I would be comfortable moving my system across town, but not across the country with water in it. It may be fine but it just feels risky to me. Also, it is quite heavy so if you move your system a ton water may not be for you.

3. I think I will always watercool my PCs, I love the performance, look, and quiet it affords. Some are deterred by the cost (my loop probably cost me around $450), but when you are running a $2000 system $450 will probably not break you.
