    FrozenCPU Window Kit With Two 92mm Fans Cutout

    Introduction

    The art of case modding, is something I hold near and dear to my heart, and something I take very seriously. There is a Zen to it that few people truly grasp. Does that mean that the rest of the world who wants to mod their computer is out of luck? Well, not really, as a number of companies online are trying to bring the elements of case modding to the masses.

    One such place is Frozen CPU. A local shop (for me) they are trying to bring some of the cooler looking mods to the general user who may or may not be the best with tools and manual work of the type. One of their products is a Plexiglas window kit they sell in a few formats. This kit gives someone an easy way to add a window into their case while bypassing a fair bit of the work associated with some of the normal windows people come up with.

    Well, now that we know about what it is, the remaining questions to be seen are among, what exactly does it take to install it? Can I install it myself? Will I kill myself while I'm working on this? Well, lets venture in a bit farther and see what we come up with for those.

    Design/Construction

    Windows in a computer? Who needs such a thing? Well, I can honestly say that pretty much nobody in the world actually "NEEDS" one, but I can tell you first hand that a window is the single most attention getting mod you can do to a computer for average LAN parties. Anyways, back to the window kit itself here. When you buy the kit, you get the essentials necessary to install it for the most part.

    Included with the kit:

    • Plexiglas window (comes in assorted colors as well as with or without fan cutouts)
    • Rubber molding/edging
    • locking strip for molding
    • Washer

    So, when you buy it, they give you everything but the tools to work on your case, pretty much. The included moulding both holds the window in place, and attaches itself securely to the case panel, so nothing falls out, and the locking strip does just what you'd think it does, locks everything in place.

    Design: 2.5/3
