Do case manufacturers usually make opaque versions of their side panels?

Recommended Posts

I have a Phantek Enthoo Pro M with a fibreglass side panel and I am looking for an opaque version of said side panel. Is this something case manufacturers usually make?

That sounds custom... I dunno that Phanteks use fibre-glass....


Did you test boot it, before you built in into the case?

WHY NOT...?!

Pretty much almost never done as well why would you want to hide your parts when that's the point of a sidepanel window. Easy to do on your own tho. Just get a frosted glass window sticker and stick it on the inside.

I just meant the stock side panel, dunno why I said fibreglass.

They supply it, new with either Acrylic or Tinted Tempered Glass side panels.

Because I leave my PC on overnight a lot and the lights are too bright. Specifically the one on an RTX 2080ti, doesnt seem to be a way of turning it off sadly. Plus I have no RGB in my PC and it's under my desk so I'm not bothered about showing it off.

Making it opaque won't really help with light. I'd just put a black vinyl sticker over it at that point. Normally you should be able to control your light on the card tho.

Are you trying to tint the acrylic? Usually that's not something a manufacturer provides as an option. The only one I know of is the Meshify C, which comes in either tinted or non tinted glass (Originally came in tinted but a lot of people complained, that's the only reason two versions exist)

I dont want to tint it, want a solid opaque panel to go on the side instead.

Just Vinyl wrap it, it would cost you like 20 bucks in material and any idiot can apply it
