And I am going to do a window mod on it. But this will be the very first mod I am going to tackle.
So, just to clarify these are the steps taken right?:
1) draw out window outline
2) cut out window outline with dremel and sand
3) get acrylic
4)....... .......
So, here's the question, how to you guys actually go about attaching windows to your cases? Do you glue them or attach rubber gromets and slot the acrylic in between them?
I might even be planning to replace the entire side panel entirely and get a black acrylic, but have absolutely no idea how to go about doing that LOL.

Cut hole, C-channel, thick double sided 3m tape to hold window on.
the c-channel is just to clean up the edge, and the tape is nice because it's more than strong enough but if you ever decide you want to change something, its much easier to remove then if you use glue.

Have you looked into ModRight? I saw another members Arc Midi with white ModRight cables and it looks fantastic. I don't want to spend the money personally, but they sure look nice.

Thanks cgull.

I'll get myself one of those silverstone expansion cards, that should do nicely!

I have some modright extensions and i'd recommend NZXT or Bitfenix Alchemy over modright, as those are better quality.

For extensions it's really BitFenix > NZXT > Modright

For sleeving check out FTWPC or MDPC-X

I would hit up Lutro0 for extensions, his work is top notch. Custom made in the colors you want. I was very impressed when I got mine.

I'm currently moving my rig to the Arc Midi. I have removed the drive cages from the front and replaced them with a push/pull 280mm rad with spacers! So much room to play with smile.gif

Very pleased with the case so far, I'll add some pictures when its finished.
