    since you have the case right there, you'd have to estimate where the window boundries would be and measure it. you would have more luck measuring your case than us trying to guess based on a picture.

    ya its 12 by 12 inches

    yeah its in inches but the thing is that the little handle thing so u can open the case i think its too in the way. wait now im thinking off getting 12x16. so should i just cut the handle thingy off? how much space (inches) do i need extra so the window wont fall out. u know what i mean so the molding stays on the metal if i have like one cm i think the case will break if u know what i mean.

    to clear things up

    just to make things easier on ur brains on what i mean. its not a handle just a dent inwards so u can grasp it better, so i can take it off. also here is the link to the one i think im getting, what i meant by too close to the egde is that i cant start at the edge i need some distance like 3/4th an inch. and what does the washer do and also why is there a weird litle upsidedown u shape in the cut?

    12x16 inch window kit

    hope that clears up my mess

    how much of a gap you cut away depends solely on the kit you bought. once you get it you can look at hte molding and see how much space it gives you between the panel and window. then you cut accordingly. 3/4" is probably a bit too large of a gap, by the way.

    and why 12"x16"? if the 16" was the width, then a good 4" of that is going to be displaying the side of your harddrives and optical drives. no one wants to see that. just get a nice 12"x12" window and mount it close the the back of the panel. square windows are more tasteful than rectangle ones, imo.
