Hello all, I've read recently that the NZXT M59 has a windowed side panel(that I very much want for my PC) that can fit on the Rosewill Challenger!

First: Does it?

Second: If so, where can I purchase it?


Thanks

Where exactly did ou read that? The only place that I can think of that would sell parts of the case would be the NZXT web site.
You don't really have to get the side panel , all you have to do is customize your case by cutting out the metal of the side panel to the size you want and pytting a pane of plexi glass in its place. I did the same thing on my case where I wanted a full size window instead of the small thing that the case came with. I have the CM HAF-X and it had a 200mm fan in the side panel. So I removed the fan and cut out the metal where the fan was and bought a piece of plexi glass that was the size of the side panel and placed it inside in the panel and secured it with double sided tape. If you look at a picture of a regular HAF-X and then my modification you will see what you can do for about $20.

You can get acryllic sheets for like $2-5, get a dremel, some sandpaper (different grits, from rough to fine) and a jigsaw/hacksaw, drill, and some rivets and a rivet gun. Can be easily done for under $7 assuming you already have the tools.

My dad has been a mechanic/handyman for over 30 years so I have many MANY tools. Those all seem accessible at this point, where can I grab an acrylic sheet from? online or in store?

I'd say a hardware store such as home depot will be the best option!
