Antec P180 side panel mod.
It's amazing what a few cold cathodes and some plexiglass can do! I figured I had to at least show off my WC loop, so I took a jigsaw to the side panel of my case. Here are the results:
Closer view at night:
Some of the cutting is a little crude. After all this case has been through now I'm surprised it's still standing.
Nice - all you're mssing is some edge trim, to cover those rough cuts. Canadian Tire
Not a bad idea! I was thinking about something like this but never knew where to look. Thanks for the heads up!
Quite a nice looking window.
Wow Charlie, never knew there was something closed to a U-Channel. I thought there was nothing like that in Canada. :thumb:
I took 3.0charlie's suggestion and added some edge trimming to the window. Looks much better I think:
I was thinking about painting the case as well but I'm not sure yet.
beautiful, :clap: thats exactly what i inquired about awhile back,im attempting to mod my 180 sidepanel aswell.just havn't got to it yet, im glad i seen this before i tried.. :thumb:
you made my decision on how to cut mine with this pic..
did you use jigsaw,router tool?
I used a jigsaw with a standard metal blade. Most of the side panel is made of that black composite you see around the edges of the panel. The aluminum is just a very thin sheet on top of it.
Also, try and get the thinnest piece of plexiglass you can. It's a pretty tight squeeze getting the panel back on now.
Very nice looking rig!!!!!!
Nice window Mibs! The trim does finnish it off nicely. Nothing like a good cosmetic mod to really make it your own.:thumb:
