I recently bought an NZXT Phantom to replace the old piece of crap I was using. It's been sitting in the corner of my room for a while and I thought, why not do something with it?
I had a few ideas of basic mods I could do with it, but nothing that really seemed good enough to do. I came up with the test bench idea because I was doing a lot of "plug'n'play" stuff with my computer and using a test bench would have made things so much easier.
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz
GeForce GTX 570
CoolerMaster Hyper TX3 Evo (Push/Pull)
60GB Corsair Force 3 SSD
320GB Samsung HDD
500GB Seagate HDD
Thermaltake Litepower 700W
Anyway, onto the actual modding
This was the case originally..
Stripped down...I made a cut out at the front for a fan with my mates dremel (still need to drill holes and such)
Removable motherboard tray (flipping it to face upwards)
Removing all the 5.25" drive bays and the 3.5" HDD bays and the rear I/O sheild
Rivets all gone..
It's so empty..
Mobo tray in
Marked out the side panel today as well.
That's it for the first update, I plan to get the side panel (soon to be top cover) cut and fitted this weekend and I also have to figure out what I'm going to use as a base for this whole thing.
Any and all idea's are welcome
