easy, the define has a higher area for hard drives and looks better. why would you want a server case with a irregular shaped front. another benefit is a quieter case as i wouldn't want the server making too much noise.

Well I got my Arc Midi a couple days ago from Newegg's $70 shell shocker. Waiting on some Z77 hardware that will be here tomorrow as well as a GTX 680 and i7 3770k that don't know they're on their way yet. But first things first....This thing needs a window.450

I'm really pleased with how it turned out, especially it being my first case mod ever. The only thing that is a bumber is I switched tools halfway though and created some scratches in an area that wasn't masked because it wasn't needed to be initially.

Great job! Is the acrylic window installed yet, I can hardly notice it.

What size template did you use?

Yes it is in. the template is 10 by just under 14 viewable leaving 1" around the outside inside for securing. making sure to leave room up top bottom for the case frame and then centered between HDD cage and back of the case. I also routed the edge inside to make a recess the thickness of the 2 face tape I used resulting in a 0 gap between the case panel and the window.

w00t, you painted it white? What about the front bezel? That one you can't just spray, can you? :|

In the spirit of things I decided to give my windows 7 a little treat and redo the desktop area in the Fractal Design spirit ;D
