The side panel is 480mm wide by 440mm high so if you get a piece of acrylic that size along with some magnetic strips (20mm wide) then I think you'd be good to go. I've got a 3mm thick sheet here and it sits flush with the front panel but in my opinion it's quite flimsy so I'd probably go up to 5mm and just ignore the slight protrusion.

Thanks! +rep

However the site I'm using measures everything in inches. I tried converting the mm to inches but even then they don't have an option. I'm afraid if I bought it it'll be a little big or a little too small.

480mm ~ 18.8976 in

440mm ~ 17.3228 in

Same thing applies with their thickness. The best I could go was 3/16 of an inch which ~ 4.7625mm. The 1/4 inch would be 6.35mm. Would that be too thick?

Sorry if sounds noobish but never done this kind of modding before.

Silly americans with your inches and gallons... rolleyes.gif

Take a slightly bigger piece and make it smaller. I'd pick the 3/16" thick one, 1/4" would be too thick imo.

Or the cheap manufactory is evident ?

If I understood your post correctly:
On my Arc Mini everything aligns perfectly, including the expansion slots you seem to be worried about. All Fractal cases I've seen have great quality, even the cheap Core 1000 (not as good as the more expensive cases, but still good).

Ah, that d700 is supposed to be fantastic, even the d90 I've played with impressed me....

Nice job!
