I would like to come up with a different idea for the shape of the window, but I have to say I really like the ones we've been seeing lately, such as the one done by BIackout. That's the shape Corsair should have used to begin with (although with that much metal cut away I bet the side panel will be flimsy compared to the stock panel).
Any ideas on a cutout shape? I had been thinking about the Corsair Sails, but I don't think I'm skilled enough to pull it off without wrecking the panel.

Think I could use a dremel to make the cut?

Took some pictures with my GoPro camera after installing my new motherboard (Sabertooth Z77).
I know my 24pin should be white, but I've not been able to get it yet. Waiting for it to come back in stock.
Also gonna change out that cold cathode in top, cause its not UV, like the rest.
Guess there is some more minor changes to be done here, but i'll finish the whole thing when I get my SSD smile.gif

And a crappy picture from my iPhone 4!

Thanks for the compliment thumb.gif
As far as the flimsiness, this actually wasn't really an issue for me. Once the Acrylic was mounted to the backside with the incredibly strong 3M 1040 tape, it was not flimsy at all!
Only thing I have noticed is that my panel is twisted like 1 degree. My guess is that this happened during the metal cutting process. I struggled to properly secure the panel to the saw-horse.
Anyways, its really only noticeable to me, so no worries there. wink.gif

I used a fine tooth jig-saw blade. I have seen people use a dremel and it looks like a lot more work, but definitely doable. Good Luck!thumb.gif

If you have to go through Newegg.com, then go with the red version of this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103073

If you can buy elsewhere go with the Spectre Pro 200mm.
