Fractal Design’s new side panel features a large fully transparent window allowing you to display your setup in style.
The acrylic window side panel features the same clean, Scandinavian design as the case itself, and has a completely flat outer surface without any plastic bezel or rivets.
Installing the Fractal Design side panel could not be easier - simply remove and replace the standard panel!
Here is an FYI:
Looks like someone is listening.. Fractal Design has answered.
Newly designed side panel with a window. Available in Pearl Black and Artic White.
To be available in August

Hope this helps Fractal Design Define R3 owners

Any word on a Midi side panel window? Are they the same as the R3's?

Why make a premium product for their cheapest case, when more expensive products don't get windowed side panels? Think about it, Fractal has to make a little incentive to drop that 100 bucks on a case, and not have a windowed, amazing 40 dollar case!biggrin.gif

I'd like to get rid of the foam in front of the fans. I think I'm gonna do circular holes. thumb.gif
1. If I try to unbend the metal mesh (in order to unmount the front panel), will it break ? I know that thin layer of metal usually doesn't like to be bent a couple of times...
2. Shall I cut the plastic frame ? ekg84 has done it in his front panel mod but I'm afraid of rendering the panel weak a bit...
Any thoughts ? Thank you ! smile.gif

You can bent those things as much as you like, as long as you are carefull they won't break,

For the plastic grills, on my build i cut them all away without losing any strenght in the front bezel. (if you want to fit 2x 120mm properly you will have to cut away almost everything)

That's pretty much exactly it.  But $40 is what makes the Core1000 so great, you can mod it to your heart's content, like mine, and not worry about ruining an expensive case.

ok mates, it looks like an email campaign is necessary to support the FD cases and side-window panel production.
here is what i got for an answer:

fractal design,
congratulations on the release of the R3 windowed-side panel. as a proud owner of two Arc Midi cases, i am wondering if there is an antisipated launch date for the Arc Midi? there have been several question of this on several forums. i for one, would like to have (purchase) on of these when available. there are a lot of water-cooling kits installed and many want to "show-off" their wares and the windowed-side panel would be a major hit amongst the Midi owners. and while about the Midi, the Mini will surely come-up on availability, also. thank you for your products as i try to get many enthusiasts involved in the Fractal Design case as they are fabulous cases along with many of your other products.

Hello Dean
Thank you for your mail.
We don´t have a plan for the moment to release a acrylic side panel for the Arc Midi.
Best Regards,
Fractal Design

OUCH!! for best results, contact Fractal Design and impress upon them in their interest for an idea of a Mini/Midi
window panel would be beneficial for them as well as ourselves.
