Very nice work thumb.gif

Strangely enough, I was planning on picking up an Arc and some plexi and doing the exact same thing.

Any tips on the process?
Looks like you used the magnetic tape method for the window.
How is your psu cover held in place? I was planning on using velcro.

Also: I think there is supposed to be an allen key provided by Fractal for removing those mounts for the extra hard drive bay that you have removed. Would make it look even cleaner imho smile.gif

The measurements for the plexi are 480x44mm. Any magnet strips you're likely to find will have crappy adhesive on the back that lasts about a day before it peels off. The first step is to remove that with some sort of solvent. I used 2-part epoxy to glue the strip to the plexi since I have a big tube of it handy. Something like 3M clear mounting tape would be pretty good too, or some other sort of strong glue.

The only issue I've had is that the plexi sags down after a while, especially if the desk moves around a lot. And I need to find a way to cover up the magnet strips, the glue looks so ugly...

Since I don't move my case around often, there is nothing holding the PSU cover in place. It just rests between the PCIe slot and the USB/front panel headers on the motherboard. Eventually I'm gunna put an LED strip beneath it, the opal white sheet I got looks really nice when it's backlit.

Really like the mods you have done to your case, nice job thumb.gif See Ramsey77 's signature as he has done a great clear plexi window and has disguised the holding magnets very well too.

P.S. What thickness of plexi did you use for the window?

My widow is real glass, but the process would be the same with plexi.

Just had a reply from Fractal about my dodgy front audio cable. Instead of sending a new cable they're sending a front panel. Top marks for customer service. I think I might experiment with a few mods on the old panel.

I got a reply from mine as well. But what they usually do instead of making you send the item to them is make sure it is indeed broken if not majorly unusable. The reply I got asked me to break a fan blade, take a picture and send it to them. I was like WOAH, you'll definitely need to replace that by then.

For those of you with Corsair Hxx coolers, how did you mount your radiator?

I just ordered all my stuff for a new rig and chose the mini :< Been wanting to get an FD case ever since the original came out.

Sorry for the really bad photo. Will try and get some good ones. Need to get myself a camera:p
