I saw Steve at GN reviewed the Silverstone Fara and I'm considering it, although I might have to bite the bullet on tempered glass. The choices without it are limited, and Corsair and NZXT have very affordable options. Thanks! 😊

I just bought a lian li 011 air mini for 124 on black friday/cyber monday.There are some deals out there right now,

Put any drinks down before reading any further because this post could crack you up enough to spew beverage. Ready?!? I'm look for a good sturdy but not-too-costly white mid tower ATX case ... without tempered glass!  It probably doesn't exist. And I'm really apprehensive of buying a white case and having the glass shattering out of nowhere. But I need a white case badly. I currently have white parts on a black MSI B550 A-Pro inside a black FD Focus G and there's just no cable management to be had in this case, and it's soooo dark inside, two neon strips aren't enough to illuminate the innards. So uh ... yeah ... white mid tower ATX case with clear plastic instead of tempered glass on the door ... 😉 

 

Aaaaand cue the LTT newsroom ... 😏

SilverStone Fara R1W

be quiet! Pure Base 500 White

Fractal Design Define 7 Compact White

 

Otherwise you can always paint your current case or have a professional do it, probably about the same price as a new case.

The clear plastic, I guess you refer to acrylic, is bit more complicated. Cases these days pretty much all use some kind of tinted ones. Mark the area and cut a whole into the side panel with a jigsaw or a small cutting disc. Then file it off and either use glue or put some holes in the corner and screw it in. You want to be careful as acrylic breaks easily. Use threaded bolts with plastic or thin rubber washers to avoid damage. I would also use a thin layer of silicone or automotive gasket sealer to around the frame to seal it up nicely and then use the screws to tighten it down. 

If you do not feel creative or lack the tools, look for older cases, tape em up and spray away.

Btw. if you want more light. get a cheap flood light in the internet. Those are 12V and work directly off your PSU.

They may even end up turning black into bright white and dull out the nice rgb colors you may have.
