Just finished making windows for my DG-77 out of clear cast acrylic. I used 1/8" thick, but it would be best to use 3/16" next time to match the thickness! It looks great though! I will most likely re-create the front panel with some notch cuts to allow for more air flow.....

    Looks nice with acrylic. Did you switch out the right side panel too? I bet it's easier to move that case around now.
     
    I never understood the point of putting painted/tinted tempered glass, that you can't see through on a case. The whole point of using glass, is to allow you to see through it. I can't wait for the industry to get over the tempered glass craze.

    That looks pretty cool. I am tempted to do something like that for the front panel of mine

    No, I left the right panel as is. It is definitely lighter now!

    Which ways have you tried the air flow on the fans ?
     
    With a one GPU card GTX 1080 Ti ( 3 fans  card) - I have the top fans blowing down and the front CPU cooling going out.
    and the back fan also going out
     
    EVGA power supply is normal in from the bottom and out the back
     
    With glass on 3 sides I have to wait a bit longer to see max temp build up

    The problem with doing that way, DG-7* doesn't have a dust filter at the top.

    haha - yes  
     
    I have 5 cats - some long hair- so most all of my systems have some kind  of a filter mod and a few have a raised roof to keep cat toys from being thrown into the fans.
     
    some times just leaving the can of compressed air on top of a computer will keep cats from sitting on a computer case.

    I have the push/pull intake on the front and exhaust out the back and top.
