Anyone here know a place that can make an acrylic panel for a case? I recently broke the side panel of my Corsair 4000x and am sceptical of getting another glass one. I thought of getting an acrylic panel made for the case. Thanks in advance.

This reminds of those golden years 2k3-2k9 where people here used to mod their cabinets by diy side pnales etc.

Ask the shop who is selling u the acrylic as they will be able to assist with the same.

any acrylic shop/number plate shop/switch board cutting shops can do it for you. Just tell them dimensions and they will cut a piece for you.

On my sidepanel, I have stuck magnetic tape on all 4 edges so the acrylic sidepanel just "sticks" to the case without needing any screws.

Any site from which I can buy the magnetic tape? Amazon has very limited options.

Yea my tempered glass panel shattered when I was trying to fix it. Not sure what even caused it. Luckily I had not removed the plastic film. Except for a few pieces of glass flying everywhere and some glass dust most of the mess stuck to the film. Only need to dispose the broken panel now. Have contacted Kaizen and they said I can collect the replacement in about 2 weeks. However, I am super skeptical of using another glass panel.

Thanks. Can I find acrylic sheets at hardware shops? Or is there any place specific that I need to look?

best place to find one right now is the people who make automobile number plates. they will either have it or will order one for you based on requirement. plus they can print on it and give you a special edition ;)

this is the original CM690, heavily modded though
I also had the cm690 ii a couple of years back. My first proper pc case.
I got mine from aliexpress. I'm not sure if its available locally
Will probably have to do with button magnets and some fevikwik :D

No need for CNC or anything. Its just a simple shape which any tom dick and harry selling acrylic will cut for you. It will cost you 250-300rs max.

if you want your case to look like above 690 i trust everyone's skill :tonguewink: . if you are tight on budget than a at least use wide electric tape on all the edges and on that you can paste magnetic tape buttons

Another option is to get glass panel if you don't manage to source acrylic.
Any photo frame shop guy can get it done for you for around 300 rs

Get a strong double-sided tape and those small thin wall/door magnets. If you have double-sided tape you won't need any screw. It depends on the quality of the tape though. What I have is one from 3M (I got it via Amazon US). Really strong. Can lift over 5kg without breaking a sweat lol.

I did speak to a local glass vendor. He quoted 600 for 6 mm thick toughened glass. But as mentioned, I want to get an acrylic panel as I do not want the hassle of another sheet of shattered glass. Also, I raised this issue with Kaizen. They have asked me collect the replacement panel from their office tomorrow.

Yup. I went looking for acrylic sheets today. No luck. Will probably order from Amazon. Hope I can cut the sheet to the required size myself using a stationery cutter.
