the earlier cases might have had a panel available, but if not now listed, your pretty much on your own
to create your own window. pretty average install. difficulty would be a 3 outta 5.
working with power tools, grinding, sharp edges. MNPCTech has a fine video on how.

Well since I don't own any power tools I think it'd be much easier to just purchase the one from fractal. It was announced in July in their newsletter that they were selling these so hopefully there are still some left. I just can't find them anywhere.

invest in a $15 jigsaw or $60 dremel, $5 plexi and $5 3m 410 tape and do it yourself.
i do it alot of the time for customer builds and its a piece of cake. juts plan out the cut,
file the egdes smooth and tape down the plexi.

Got my Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm white LED for the roof.

It fit's in (just) and uses quite random mounts, 1 screw had to go through the mesh lol. It's secure and looks pretty good. Can't wait for a window.

Very dissapointed with the airflow this fan is producing in it's current place. I think I will have to cut a hole in the mesh but to be honest the arc has such good airflow I don't see it being that much different.

Arc midi, Q6600@3.2GHz 1.34vcore only 49C on P95 with the D-14. 3 Corsair AF 140, 1 fractal fan on the bottom as intake and the 200mm up top. Can take pics if anyone wants to see how it looks, doesn't look great, but will look better when the window is released.

Sounds cool! I've got a 230mm one on the front and it pushes loads of air even @5V, so I'm kinda surprised to hear that you're disappointed at the airflow biggrin.gif

@Blizlake When you had your Core 1000, was it difficult mounting the Antec Khuler 620 in the front? I plan on getting it.

In the Arc a 230 at the front?? lol. I think the lack of airflow is because my exhaust is very powerful, and the D-14 probably steals the air from it, out of the case it shifted a ton of air, it also probably doesn't have the pressure to blast air through the mesh and then the top filter. Will look cool though when I get window so not a loss at all. biggrin.gif

I'll be mounting a 620 or possibly a 920 on the outside rear (have not decided which 1 to use) of the Core 1000...I suggest you do that so you can take advantage of using that fan for your gpu thinking.gif
