Hey,

I have a jeantech case and it's massive, about 3foot tall i was wondering if you guys think it would be any good if i got my dad to jig-saw a large square in one side for the window.

The trouble with this is, if we do-do a larger window then the normal window kits are way to small.

So, what i need is:

Reccomendations on what to use for the window iteself.
What is best to keep the window tight and secure?
How can i keep it clean from metal shredding?

Also, what is the best mod sites in UK, i want to go start modding

I'm out of bed and dressed, what more do you want?

I always take life with a grain of salt, ... a slice of lemon, ...and a shot of tequila

I used to have an open mind but my brains kept falling out

One more step to enlightenment ... but which way ?

hey,

Thanks for replying.

Kustom pc windows are way to small, i think i need to goto B&Q but what type of 'window' do i need? 4mm perspec?

Also, what is the best way of attacting it, i like the 'rubber rimming' but do not know where to buy it sepereatly, would duck tape work?



Thanks

pretty much follow this guide http://www.fury-tech.com/modules.php...ump=window_mod

go to a hobby shop or DIY shop and get a sheet of 3-4mm thick acrylic that is bigger than the hole you going to cut in the case, also get some rubber edging from one of those websites to cover the cut edge

Could i use the thin 'flexy window frame' that comes with large clip frames?

As i have one in my room, and come to think about it; it looks like just a window, would it work?

you want something that isnt going to deform or bend too much and is strong enough for you to screw into to mount a case fan
