Hi All,

Just a quick update on my Define R4. I have started cutting my own window Fractal are taking forever to release theirs in the UK and I find more satisfaction in getting the exact shape I want.



Apologies for the messy build area! The window was cut with a angle grinder and then filed back to a smooth(ish) edge, this will then be covered with U channeled rubber. The holes you can see are for M3 bolts to go through which will give a tough fixing for the plexi glass!

I am still waiting on some final parts to arrive before fitting the plexi glass but it was reasonably easy to drill with a normal metal drill bit. I have also place L.E.D strips on the inside of the window panel to light the entire case this is connected to a USB connector on the top right of the case and is well hidden when the panel is fitted but allows for the panel to be removed for maintenance! Finally I have added white L.E.D lights around the power button, the blue didn't fit the colour scheme!!

No it wasn't difficult.. just slightly nerve racking taking the grinder to a brand new case! but I had decided i could purchase the new side panel if things went wrong lol Just took a slow and steady pace!

That is the original the actual button is 22mm then you have the L.E.D ring around the outside, all I did was remove the blue L.E.D and replace it with White.. My camera makes white look kind of blue though :/ There are three L.E.D's lighting that button now and they draw power from the fan controller on the inside of the door.

Hey guys what measurements did you guys use to make a full acrlyic side panel for the Arc midi?
post #4450 of 16129
Didn't know if this has been mentioned before but e-mailed Fractal Design regarding a Window'd version release date in the UK:

"Many thanks for your enquiry on the R4 with window side panel. We plan to have the Window side panels in stock in the UK by mid-November.



Please could you look at our partner then such as Ebuyer where you will be able to buy"
