I will probably attempt to cut my own with my spare side panel, but £12 is brilliant for a higher quality than I could do. It would cost me more than £12 to get a dremel and disks and metal files etc lol.

Also I've been waiting absolutely ages and finally I should have one tomorrow! Ebuyer got them in and they didn't last long enough for me to even see them. Emailed Fractal who didn't even tell me other etailers who might get them lol.

for $25 more at CaseLabs the Merlin awaits your credit card information.
more rad support, mobo support, USA made and top-notch customer service.

steal the one from the roof or the exhaust. you wont miss either in temperatures.
id swipe the exhaust and move it to the front panel. let it naturally exhaust (there
is massive ventilation in back and roof).

The merlin is nice, but more expensive, and doesn't have top I/O. It also supports Less radiators. The 900D supports a 480 up top push/pull, 240/360 in the front, a 480 down below, and a 240. Granted both cases support enough radiator to cool just bout any PC.

I will be using a 480 and a 240. Plenty for my needs, (crossfired 7950's and Fx 8320/8350) currently single 7950 and 8120. I have not actually gotten around to install the second card and new cpu yet. Still waiting for the water blocks for the 7950's.

the merlin is modular, expandable and can configure alot quicker than the
900D. not taking anything away from corsair george and the corsair design
team, but this smacks alot of the SM8 and the swapable design. this is what
case owners have been wanting. Caselabs has been doing this awhile, but
under stated and not mass marketed and all in aluminum with color choices,
reversable motherboard, options out the wazzzoooo.

expensive?, $25 more.. it can be configured for top i/o.. a case of this caliber
that is already being sold to the open market.

radiator support is less than 900D? what? 480top p/p same, 240/360 front p/p,
240/360/480 lower p/p kinda the same, but one difference, the top can support
dual 480 p/p laterally as well with no mobo restriction..

you can have the 900D later, but i'll already have the SM8 Merlin..

Anyone have luck ordering the windowed side panel? My order was placed with J&R but they told me they dont actually have it in stock, and aren't sure when it will be shipped.
post #5566 of 16135
Saw currys are stocking the R4 in white for about £90. If I can find a Phanteks for less than £50 I'll use £90 Currys vouchers and then as for the windowed side panel for my birthday biggrin.gif Can'ty wait to join the club smile.gif

Currently after delivery today. I need to choose some LEDs I was thinking Bitfenix braided 2M LED chain in white or blue. Also want to put something black on the battery to cover it up maybe electrical tape. May consider a new PSU and sound card to tidy it up.

The side panel is really good quality, fits better than the original and they also added sound deadening to it like in the R4.

I am using transparent silicone glue.
Just the most cheapest one from the hardware store.
I've been applying it with a silicone syringe just around the edges of the window, maybe a little to much but it´s like invisible from the outside. It holds the window in place like it will never fall out biggrin.gif

I know many guys did use tape for mounting the windows but I´m moving my pc quiet often so I wanted it to last.
I hope that I could help you with my (late) answer.
