    Hi, my name is James. I've posted a couple times about cases here on the forums. I thought it would be a great idea to post some of the cases I do while I'm at work. In hopes that I'll instill trust in the public to help people make informed decisions. So, here go the pictures...

    The acrylic is mounted on the outside of the panel sitting on top of a plastic painted ring that matches the color of the case. I'm working on a bolt on for the Yellow Wave Master right now. You'll see that ring clearly on this case. Stay tuned.

    All of our acrylic is Laser cut. The edges are beveled and polished. This stuff doesn't get any better looking.

    And I use a drill, a stepper bit, a hole-saw, a dremel, and mad skills to get the premo look.

    Let me see some pictures of your stuff and we'll see. Thanks!

    I need to do some better pictures, but here's what I did for myself. I spent as much on the case as I did on everything to go in it. Crazy?!

    This is the new G70B from Lian Li. I installed Lian Li's Aluminum Black Casters. We had these specially contracted from Lian Li. Once we sell out that's it; noone else anywhere has these. I then added Black Aluminum Handles to allow for ease of transport. Creature comforts out of the way, I went on to cooling. I decided on a 2x120mm A.C. Ryan Bricky Black Rad Grill for exhaust. I drilled out my window rivets and replaced them with black buttonhead screws. I then drilled a 120mm hole just over the side exhaust fan to allow ventilation. Then I changed the fan over to an intake. I filtered all three intake fans (front, rear, and side) with 120mm FilterRights. These filters catch nearly everything. I put one 5x5mm LED kit in the middle of the top pointing straight down. Then I put another underneath my 5.25 bays pointing into the case. Both are controlled by one of the switches on my Zalman Fan Controller. The other switch will be operating 42 other LED's that are going to be used for a "special" lighting project that will hopefully be posted before too long. I of course put in a CD-01 to cover up my NEC DVD-Burner and painted a 5.25 CD Home all black to match everything else. This holds 8 CDs individually in a fold out flappable holder. Very cool. I specially made what I call an "Over-Clockers" Panel. This has your normal 12V Led switches on it like our switch-buses do. However, I replaced one of the switches on it for a SPDT switch that replaces my CMOS jumper. If I set something wrong, flip the switch, push the power, flip it back, and I'm ready to go. I drilled slots for 2 x 5mm LED's to replace the stock ones for Power and HDD Activity. I still have more plans in the works for this case, but it's definately taking form as it sits. Anyway, on to the hardware...

    Asus A8N-SLI Motherboard
    AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice Core with Arctic Cooling Silencer 64 Pro
    eVGA 6800 GS CO SE (stock cooler for now)
    200GB WD HDD 8MB Cache (ATA/133 for now as well)
    NEC 3540 DVD Burner
    SunbeamTech Nuuo 550 Modular Power supply with all UV Red ConnectX Easy Grip, UV Red 120mm Intake fan, and adjusted cable lengths for connectors
    Linksys WMP54G Wireless Card
    Linksys WRT54G Router
    Zalman MFC1 Fan Controller (Thinking about laser cutting smoke acrylic to replace Blue)
    1GB Corsair XMS Dual Channel RAM (2 3 3 5 Timing)
    Acrylic Second PSU Plate
    Razer eXact Mat (On control side)
    Razer Diamondback Limited Plasma Edition
    Logitech 4.1 Speakers
    Logitech MOMO Racing Steering Wheel
    Logitech Driving Force Pro Steering Wheel
    Logitech Extreme Wingman Digital Pro Joystick
    Good ol' Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard (for now lol)
    Sony 18" Flat Panel Monitor as Primary
    KDS 17" Flat Screen Monitor as Secondary

    lol You guys are awesome. Doing this for a living is very cool. I'm very happy to see a case in shipping have its owner see it before UPS drops it off. Very cool. Keep the comments coming!

    We can do it on a case by case basis. Our sales department has the information on that. But, I don't see ANY reason why we couldn't put a window in ANY case you happen to have :D

    Of course, we would need your panel here first. After that, the magic would happen. :eek:

    Cool!

    So what's a ballpark figure for installing a basic clear side window on an Antec Solution SLK3800B case?

    You'll have to e-mail us for anymore information.

    Future reference, I cannot give any prices on this forum. I am not attempting to directly advertise our company. I'm simply getting the word out on some of the more used mods that nearly anyone can do. I am expecting a few "shout-outs" to [H]ardOCP in comment sections on our orders, but that's it. All price and quote questions must be directed to our website. Now, let the pictures continue!!

    I'm currently working on two TJ07B's with windows. One is stock besides the window. The other has a Lian-Li Rheobus using a TJ07 panel, a switch bus, an aluminum front floppy, black casters, and black handles. Today, I found an easier way to do the casters. The old way took nearly 45 minutes and required me to take the front hard drive rails out temporarily. Now, not a problem. 20 minute max. Keep 'em coming!!

    Here come the next batch of pictures. I didn't get a chance to post yesterday, those TJ07s are labor intensive. Anyway, I have several pictures of an LCD in a baymount, a P180 Bolt on with no Laser Etching, a V1100 Bolt on with etching and 120mm intake. The V1100 is a special occasion. I have been experimenting with a Tap set. What I ended up with are very good looking windows, especially with cases including sound dampening material. Comment away!!!


    Silver TJ07 I posted about yesterday:

    I start work on a new project today. Should be finished tomorrow. V2100 with a triple rad in the top and a dual rad in the side. Send in your ideas on how to get this done. Let's see who can figure out how I'm going to do it.

    rad in the side like TJ-07 and triple rad on top of case (internal mounting) is bad idea someone who needs those PCI for sound card or wireless card

    We don't have the space internally to mount the dual rad like in a TJ07. We're going to use one of the new GTS 360 Rads. They are very thin; in conjunction with three Scythe S-Flex 1200rpm fans. He's going to lose just maybe the last PCI but that's it. He's using a Raptor X as well. Another stab at our plans?

    This person is requesting two rads. So, we install two rads. I'm not sure of everything that's going in it, but here's a hint... A GTS 360, a GTS 240, a Coolplex 10, a Bullseye, and two pumps. I'm not sure which pumps to go with. I have to figure space and flow.

    as far as the pump goes, 2 Ultras in series would be the best and also space saving too, this is what I did with mine, bulleye can be mounted on top or bay mount, especially if you have 2 Ultras, it would be save lots of space and much better flow than 2 50z that I have right now

    Also I have enough space for long PSU like PC P&C 1KW or Zippy 850W

    Deluxe window, 120mm blowhole, and sleeved. I think I remember that case. How's that SI-120 working out for you? Good temps?
