For me Lian Li PC-V3000 and EVGA DG-87 are nicest full tower cases available at the moment.

lol.. check Phanteks Evolv X.. made of aluminum and tempered glass. Let's face it EVGA cases are garbage.

Intel i9 9900K | EVGA Z390 FTW | G.Skill Ripjaws V 4x8GB | EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FE | Intel 760p 1TB | EVGA CLC 280 | EVGA 650W P2 | PHANTEKS Enthoo Evolv X

Cool GTX

No doubt EVGA DG-87 is case with best view on components inside.

That looks awesome. Where did you get the glass? I may change mine to that way. I'm sure the hinges are much sturdier with the steel instead of acrylic/


This piece came from a local glass shop, most places have glass shops hidden around, and there are plenty of online options for custom glass too. Don't feel to pressured to insist on tempered, I feel that's mostly a shipping and liability issue for companies.
 
The hinges are just modified general purpose hinges, The original acrylic ones seem to be plenty strong for whatever you want, though, and I would have probably just 3d printed an ABS replica had I owned a printer.
Finally the latch just started as a piece of 1/4" aluminum 'C'-channel.
 
I made a 'door' from foam-core, for prototyping, then used said door to make an inverse jig with the hinges/ latch on it, prepped and masked the glass, applied [3M Windo-Weld], spread it nicely, then applied the jig. After the adhesive was somewhat rubbery, i cut the jig down so I could remove the masking for clean lines. The next day was cleanup and using a syringe/needle to inject paint into a couple visible air pockets.
 


Hello friend, first sorry for my English.
I really liked the result presented by you with your attitude in making a glass door, congratulations. I need to make one for mine too, because mine ended up staining the acrylic which is irreversible. My question is in the measurements, could you provide the ones you used and also what was the thickness of the glass? Thanks!

It looks somehow very special. You get extra points from me for that NFS underground2 poster in a frame at wall.  That game was something special too and EA were still good.

finally a signature without that associate code

Ow, thanks. I asked to make the three games that are very special for me.

I've been thinking about a new case, but not sure about the DG-8 because of size. My current case is already quite large.

Did the DG-8 series get discontinued? I no longer see them on EVGA's product page.

I have been tying to put together an all EVGA build except for CLC (I went with the Alphacool Eisbear 280 Extreme), and happened to see one NIB on ebay last week. Needless to say, I had it shipped down to Florida quickly (:

Hello, as my acrylic door was scratched, I decided to change it and put another one in tempered glass, the result is below.
-6mm tempered glass
-G5 smoked film
-Fixation: a small piece of double-sided 3M tape centered on the top.
Sorry for my English
