Find your Window
Are you looking for a window?
Chill-r produces a high quality glass window for -almost- every pc case. We are sure that we can meet your wishes.
You can use a glass window on any PC side panel door. If the Side panel of your Case already has a side panel (mainly acrylic materials), you can replace the existing window with a custom glass printed version. If you have a PC Case that is not equipped with a window you can modify your steal side case panel **.
Pick the shape you would like and use a cutting tool to make room for a window in the steal side panel. You can opt to fix the Window on the inside of the case panel or on the outside. For side panels that have been cut and are visually not nice to look at we recommend fixing the panel on the outside of the case. We can print a margin all around on the glass so you will not see the cutting edges.
Fixed Shapes variable Size
We have pre-defined a set of window sizes and shapes. Suited for desktop PC’s ranging from mini tower, midi tower to full tower.
Fixed Shapes: replacement window
We also have a number of Windows that have been used/created previously for specific computer Cases. For example a side panel window for:
- Cooler Master Storm Stryker *
- Cooler Master HAF X *
- Cooler Master HAF 932 *
Does your case have a factory (acrylic) fitted window? Chill-r can make an exact copy of that window, as a replacement for the standard window.
Custom Windows made to your specification
On top of the predefined Shapes and Sizes there is also the possibility to create a custom shape. For example the glass panel designed for a Cooler Master HAF X, where the side panel has been modified to fit a Custom Window. The Shape and the size are custom ordered ****.
You can choose:
- The height and width of the Window.
- The shape: rectangle, box or even round.
- Sharp or rounded edges.
- Holes for mounting/fixing.
- A printed margin all around (to mask jagged edges after cutting in steal side panels).

A PC is more than the sum of its parts
Gamers, PC modders, overclockers and tweakers have one thing in common: the love for their personal computer (PC). A lot of time and effort is done to make, build, mod, design and tweak the personal computer to personal needs. An important part off the look of the computer is the pc case (also referred to as a computer enclosure or chassis).
Computer cases/chassis can be used and or bought as: gaming computer cases, custom pc cases, benchmarking cases, watercooling cases. Water cooling is often an extra reason to showcase the inside of the computer. PC cases and the hardware inside are often adjusted to personal wish or need, this is known as pc case modding. These computer mods depend on available computer accessories or have to be modded by hand.
Cases, Chassis or Enclosures: general information
PC Cases or enclosures can be divided into categories or types. Types, which are mainly determined by the height, can be split up in the following ranges –which are differently named depending on the manufacturer: Mini ITX, Mini Towers, Mid Towers, Full Towers, Ultra Towers, desktop, HTPC, Server cases. However there is no real standard naming convention.
Another way is the dividing the PC Cases/Chassis/Enclosures by the motherboard size, which has been standardized as form factor size (more information and full list on wikipedia). Among these are : microATX (or µATX), ATX (sometimes referred to as standard ATX) and Extended ATX.
Windowed computer cases
Some cases have been factory fitted with a window in the side panel of the case, examples off brands with a windowed side panel are the cases from:
- Cool Master; like the coolermaster HAF, CM Elite, Centurion and Cosmos series and the Cooler Master (CM) Storm series.
- Corsair cases, for example the Corsair Obsidian cases Corsair Graphite series, the Vengeance Series and the Carbide series.
- Antec with case series: Enthusiast, performance (one), and gamer cases.
- Fractal Design: with the Define R4 series, the ARC mini and ARC midi series.
- Lian-Li cases, like the PC-8NWX.
- Thermaltake: like the Chaser Snow and Thunder Edition, the V-series, the Spacecraft, Chaser, Commander, SD and Overseer Series Cases.
Buying a computer case
Buying a case is an important step in the build of a new computer, a lot of things have to be optimal. Considerations when buying a computer case are:
- The size: does all the hardware fit in the case?
- How much room is available for placing the case?
- Usage: does the PC motherboard, Central Processing Unit (CPU or processor) and or Graphic Card (GPU) generate a lot off heat? For example heavy gaming PCs, overclocking rigs or PC’s for graphic designers.
- Amount off cooling Fans.
- Possibility off installing a water cooling set, with water blocks for the CPU (processor water block), the GPU (water blocks for Graphic Cards), motherboard blocks (Chipset blocks) and even RAM water cooling (water blocks for the memory sticks). The placement of the water cooling pump, the reservoir (sometime reservoirs with pumps and last but not least the Radiator. Radiators ranging from 1x120 mm to 4 x 140 mm and even beyond that.
- Is the case a windowed version (i.e. does it have a side panel with a window) or can you buy a window kit for it.
- Can the case be modified easily? Case modders are known for their creativity, mods can range from small to large case modds.
- The level of noise that is emitted by the case; this is the accumulative of the hardware inside.
- The material: cases are being made in: acrylic, aluminium, polyester, steel and a lot more is possible.
