S_G, do a little digging on their forum. They may make a windowed side panel like they do for the Cosmos S and CM690. Newegg sells those.

Edit: and a side window is a fairly easy mod if they don't.

A very nice case for sure but for that price I would much sooner get a HAF.

I must admit though the look is very appealing (so shiny... lol)

BOTH!! It does have good options BUT they are limited in their scope when compared to other cheaper cases (like the HAF). What can I say...its a zen thang enaberif ;)

Just looked, they were saying something about 4-5 weeks back in December. Should have been available by now. Unfortunately, I don't have any tools to make a clean window mod.

Agreed, that's why I want the black one. (and with no drive bay overs I won't have to find silver optical drives)

So a side window panel is coming? Had I known that I might not have bought the Cosmos. And the panel for the Cosmos is $34 on Newegg, I'd expect this to be about the same price.
