tay: i don't think my rig is worth linkage in every single post i make
is the thread documenting my window mod.
i think if you're in Chris.Day's situation and have rf-sensitive equipment near your pc, then a window is a no-go. but my computer is
my hi-fi (or substitution thereof) and i don't listen to the radio.. so no problems for me
i agree that drive cages are really not worth showing off at all.. which is why my window is cut out to only show the motherboard really. some of the flashy 'bling' cases go to great lengths to position huge windows right over your beautiful... drive cages.
thankfully i haven't had water leaking problems for a year or so now (faulty cpu waterblock was dripping coolant onto my video card (but no damage)) but i guess another big reason for a window is the show-off factor. one of my friends brought his girl over a while ago, she was absolutely jaw-dropped at my rig (even though she knows next to nothing about comptuers). so yeah.. picks up chicks i guess
