So, how would this look as a case window design for a computer? I'll be using the side panel of the Antec 300 and using a Dremel I'm buying tomorrow morning to do it. I'm also thinking of putting a 80mm-120mm fan in the middle of the triangle thing as well (the white mini triangle), what do you think?

I also might just do one big triforce with just the triangle and make it big enough to still put a 120mm fan in the middle of it since I'd be cutting out the side panel fan with the window or this design.

EDIT: A dremel should be able to cut out cable routing holes, right?

if you want square routing holes, the dremel is perfect. I personally would use a small holesaw and make two holes close together (but not overlapping), then use a dremel to do the straight cuts between them, kina like

O===O

but with the straight lines aligned to the circles. makes nice ergonmic cuts
if you dont have a holesaw, the same effect can be achieved with a drill bit, but instead of 2 holes make 4, one in each corner, then dremel straight cuts between them. Makes rectangular holes with rounded corners.

What about that design though? Anyone think that would look good as a case design window? I'm thinking about just doing the triangle part of it for now and making it bigger and then putting a 120mm fan inside the middle of it.

And then the dremel should be fine for cable holes.

That will look pretty cool,
