bought this case from newegg for my parents comp, its alright, kinda flimsy at points but im open for some ideas on a case mod, no clear side panels (as the fan is f*ing MASSIVE) but i need something to kill time until my mobo/cpu/hd arrive

You could cut some holes on the top of the case and install fans in them.

Yup, thatd be pretty cool to cut off the whole top of the case and put a glass cover there with exhaust fans. But yeah, get some exhaust fans in that baby

You could try putting a baseball card against the fan blades so it sounds like a motorcycle

But if you're able to, you could cut off the entire top panel and replace it with plexi glass with some holes drilled in it to place fans in and maybe even a temperature gauge and then put some blue LEDs in the case so the lights surround the fans and gauge.

You could try http://www.americanframe.com/catalog/plexiglass.html

You could also put some LED Acrylic Footsteps on it to give it a blue underglow, http://www.xoxide.com/ledacfomod.html.

Edit: Frozencpu.com has clear window kits that has 2 kits for a top window and even a colored top window kit, http://www.frozencpu.com/scan/se=Win...nu_search.html you could give them a try.
