Fractal Design Define R5 Acrylic Window Replacement w/ 120mm fan Picture 36919
In some configurations, particularly those with a hot-running motherboard or multiple video cards, a fan on the side of the computer blowing down to onto the internal components can be very beneficial - or even necessary in order to keep temperatures in a safe range. Many cases have such side fans, but if you get a case which does not then we have the ability to modify the side panel to have a fan mounted. When conducting such modifications it is easier to do so in an acrylic window rather than a metal side panel, so the cost is lower as well. In this Fractal Design case, we replace the thin stock acrylic window with thicker, higher quality acrylic window.

If you are unsure if your system needs this, feel free to contact our sales consultants at sales@pugetsystems.com. They will be happy to help!

A side fan like this can be helpful when added fresh air intake is needed. That most commonly comes up in systems with multiple video cards, but other hot-running expansion cards can also benefit - like PCIe based SSDs and RAID controllers. If you do not have any of those things in your system, then skipping a side fan will help reduce noise slightly and give you a bigger viewable area in the window.

Note: Available only for the windowed versions of the Fractal Design Define R5
