    unfortunately, my case doesnt have a side panel windows :(
  5. Make one :)
    Theres a kit if you aren't up to measuring and such yourself, you'll still need to do some cutting though

    it'd be cheaper to buy a sheet of acrylic yourself and cut to size, real modding hehe

  6. i live in india and i doubt that frozencpu will ship it to me :(
  7. I was just pointing out that kits are available, vendor choice is up to you, although in India you are probably better off going for the original modders route, cut the desired hole, sheet of acrylic and glue/doublesided tape to keep it on the panel,
    as I said, cheaper too :)
