i decided i wanted a window in the side of my cm 690 II but the retail windowed version looked clunky so i thought i would have a go at doing it myself. what do you think?

Nice! :)  What tutorial did you use? You should also add some cold cathodes to the build :)

yeh i have ordered cable casing some led fans and a cold cathcode light set
@amuffin: i didnt use a tutorial i just measured up where i wanted the window to be,
cut it out with an angle grinder and rounded the edge off with a dremmel, i didnt use the uchannel to hide the cut edges as im a painter by trade i just resprayed the whole panel

good effort... my only gripe is that the corners dont completely match while some are round others are angular. but hey for what it is, it looks great... 9/10
