    Noise

    For some reason, noise was severely drained out when the side panel was installed, in comparison to my old side panel, even when two more fans were installed. Although my case is still very loud, noise has been severely reduced.

    Size

    The side panel I tested fits the Dragon DX, Matrix MX, Scorpio SX, and Antec 1030, 1080 series cases. And according to Directron, this product will fit Antec, Chenming, Uneec, Enermax, ThermalTake, Alienware, and other co-branded cases of the mid-tower design. If you donít have one of these cases, Directron does offer various other side panels for other cases, but I have not tested any of them, so I am not sure if they are worthy of your money or not.

    The side panel fitted perfectly on my computer, so you shouldnít be worried on whether it fitís or not if you have one of the above cases.

    Price

    The side panel costs just $32 (plus shipping) at Directron.com, no matter what color you use. The price is great considering Home Depotís cheapest Dremel is $20, and a case window will also set you back another $15-$20.
