That gets covered up for a big part by that stealth cover

the stealth cover and its support bar can be completely removed.

But then you're looking at grommet-less cable management, which doesn't tend to look very good, usually

wondering if the ronin window panel will fit on the shinobi mid tower they look the same size.. and if so ill buy one!!

tbh i really like the look of this case for the window panel alone but like you said in the review i would likly go for a nanoxia or even a ghost if i was to buy a new chassis any time soon :-/

Whether you like the large window or not is a personal preference, personally I prefer it with the large window and without the stealth cover, but the point is it's nice to have the option. What I'd would like to see is a stealth cover that fits to the window itself, a very thin sheet on the exterior surface of the Perspex that is contiguous with the plane of the metal case side, perhaps held in place from the interior side of the window with small magnetic pads. That way it wouldn't stand out so much. Maybe you could even cut your own shapes???

Hello,
In the build section of this review, you said 'please dont' install a 120mm fan on the bottom of the case just in front of the PSU. why? does it suck dust in from the bottom or something? always which way do you recommend the PSU fan to face?

Thanks

Cause fans in the bottom of a case look tacky and aren't really good for anything. If you lack front intake, then maybe it's time for a new case all together.

It doesn't matter which way the fan faces, a PSU is not really going to run hot. When you do mount it fan-up though, your 8 Pin CPU cable might be just too short. If you mount it fan-down, you can't put your PC on high carpet and you have to clean the dust-filter every now and then.
