Default Case Modding

Hi all,

I'm not sure if this is the right section to post but it is a modding question/idea.

So basically I'm thinking of purchasing a Cooler master Cosmos 2 case and was thinking of cutting the side panel and putting in plexi glass.
It would look somthing like the HAFx case.

I was wondering if anyone can give me tips or have done this before, since I've never modded a case before.

Thanks

Why not just get the HAFx?

Just give it a while and sidepanel kits will come out for it eventually. It will look nothing like a HAF X lol.

Im not getting a hafx because I want to have some
experience In case modding and I just want to learn new things :-)
And I wasn't thinking of waiting for a kit but to do it from
scratch.

Well if you wait for the kit the correct pieces will be there.

Here is a guide that shows you what you need. Just cut out the pieces that don't apply to you (like mesh, or bulldog).

How To Guide: Plexi Window with Mesh
