    Ja! I'd like to get a transparent front for my gaming rig. I think it's just a matter of time before this happens given the popularity of this case. :p

    problem with a transparent front is that theres metal behind the front panel. :(
    as for the wiring i too have mine behind the drive bays.
    my psu wiring is heaps messy tho, just looks like a big black tangle really.

    Mine does not have any metal behind it, well, unless you mean the front of the actual case frame. I still think it would look cool. My LED fans would light it up very nicely. :)

    I did it. Not on a widow case, but it still was a pain!

    I hasd to wire mine with count them 7 of those damn fan converters. You know that take it from 3 pin to 4 pin and have 2 4 pin connectors on them. It wasn't the wires that made it hard, it was hiding all those 4 pin connectors.

    so after I was done I just had to have a drink

    I ran all my fan wires behind the mobo tray ! Except for the side panel fan.
    The lower 2 front fans I have wired down in the little hole in the lower front corner of the mobo tray. The HDD fan is just hidden behind the HDD cage.
    Soon they'll all be hooked up to a switched 6 port baybus (I have 6 fans)
