well I do belive it will get the job done. But did you look into any of the centriuon 5 cases? they cost the same and have a window. I am not sure how many drive bays they have though.

i was looking into them but they dont have a 120 in the front but only an 80 and i didnt think the 80 would get it done.

also i have the plexi glass and what not to put in my own custom side window

I think that is a pretty good looking case with a decent price.

If I was in the market for a new case, and saw that one at the local shop, I'd consider buying it

ya that could be a problem if you put a huge window on the side.

Hahaha, what are you planning on doing with that thing? Even really cheap cases can withstand being toted around in a trunk of a car, etc. Judging by the overall look of the case, I don't think you need to do any reinforcing
