    ClearView Acrylic Case Review - All Dressed UP...


    (Page 3 of 4 )

    Here are some pics of my Shuttle SN41G to give you a look at what it looked like before I put the ClearView Acrylic case to work.

    As you can see, I painted the original case pewter a while back and she looks pretty good. [Editorís Note: She?!] Now lets see if the ClearView can make it look any better.

    Now you can see exactly what this ClearView Acrylic case looks like installed on the Shuttle SN41G. Very nice look, if I do say so myself. As you can see, the two side panels still have the knockouts in place where the fans should be installed. After heading to the garage and hooking up the Dremel, I was able to remove the fan hole on the left side of the Shuttle. With the power supply on the right side, there is no way to mount a fan on that side unless you mount it on the outside. Let's take a look at what she looked like after a fan was installed.

    No room on the right side.

    Looks pretty good right? Yeah, I thought so. This will surely make you stand out at your next LAN Party, and be the envy of your friends as you frag them to death. But what else can we do with this ClearView Acrylic case? Well, if we want it to stand out, letís light it up! Let's see what this beast looks like when you throw in a LED Fan and put some power to it.

     

    Looking good for sure. Something else you can add is a 4 inch cathode to the mix to really light up this case. Warning: make sure you keep an eye on the additional power loads that you are applying to these SFF power supplies. The power supplies that Shuttle uses are designed to provide little more power than the SFF design specs requires. They also have a habit of dying at the least expected moment. Just as an example, this is the second power supply in my SN41G in about a year and a half.
