Check the Antec site. They sell windowed side-panels for some of their cases. I think they sell one for yours, if I'm not mistaken. Hope this helps.

They sell some nice kits at www.frozencpu.com. They are a little expensive but they are good quality and then all you will need to do is dremel out a hole.

i think i am going to do it myself. i looked at the antec website like a prior post said and i saw what i wanted but theres has a spot for a side fan that when reviewed they said it messed up the airflow in the case and caused for higher temps even with the extra fan. if thats the case id rather ust do it myself cause it would be cheaper and ill leave that part out. thanks for the help everyone much appreciated.

Check xoxide.com they have some great kits too. It took me around an hour to do my side panel, and it was very easy, just remember: "Measure twice, cut once."
