    Which window kits are better?

    If anyone here has any experience with window kits which are better? Easy to install and looks better?

    Or if you know any other kits that are better.

    I would get the one from www.coolerguys.com. It's very easy to install and looks very clean compared to the rubber molding one. Just make sure you measure twice and cut once. See the attached pic.

    It's an all aluminum case made by Skyhawk USA. I paid $70, shipped and modded the window, intake fan, and exhaust fan on top. Very nice, well constructed case.

    Here's a pic w/ the flash off and the UV cold cathode on.

    I am more than interested in putting a window in my Chieftech case. Can anyone point me to a link where it could give me the low-down on how to install it? I was thinking if going with the L-Shaped one(2x92mm fans) from Coolerguys.

    I'm really worried about chopping into my case and messing it up.

    I think Chieftech has side panels with windows you can buy.
    Here are a few links to check out.

    I think I saw a few side panels with windows at newegg.

    I've already looked. The only place I can EVER find them is on Newegg. I was going to get one until they came out with the new series of panels. They are half the size and worthless.

    Im going to go with the L-shaped one that has 2x92mm fan openings. Gonna with that, 2x92mm blue LED fans, chrome grills, and fan filters.

    Then later on get a light

    Yeah I looked at them up close and the dam window is too small. If I'm going to put a window in It's got to be big enough to see what's inside the case. That way everyone can see my crapy hardware...COUGH!
