I am interested in installing the NZXT Hue into my Phantom 410. One of my concerns is the blue LED HDD and power indicators at the front of the case. Is there a way to get rid of the Blue LEDs at the front of the case. Even better, can I use the LED's from the HUE? Another question, do I have to get completely new fans since the stock ones that I have installed in my case have Blue LEDs as well.

Thank you in advance for any help you guys offer. biggrin.gif

as for the hdd and power leds you can actually replace them with another color of your choosing if you wish if i recall correctly they are 3mm leds as for using the hue leds im not sure you may be able to with some modding but if you manage to be sure to post pictures as that would be awesome ... and the led fans you have you could always remove the leds from them and the fan will still function ... with some work you could change there color even or just remove them entirely and use the hue for coloring

Ok, I think that my major problem is with the front indicator LED's. It would of course be cool if it worked with the NZXT Hue, but I doubt it would. I guess I would be fine with just the indicator being blue. I don't think the light of the indicator LED will leak into the case, only thing that I am worried about. If anyone would have pictures of whether the Blue LED at the front of the case interferes with the case, that would be awesome. Either that or I would just stick to one color. Currently, I have Orange or Green in mind if I don't go down the Hue road. Pictures of orange or green (or any other color) lit set ups would be appreciated. Thanks

NZXT released the Hue back when their Switch 810 case was still newly released and enormously popular . . . .

I'd try looking thru the 810 thread for pics of the Hue setup in a case. It was pretty popular, and offered good bang for the buck as far as case lighting of that day goes.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1209048/official-nzxt-switch-810-thread

The 410 was NZXT's entry into the econo-box offerings, and was a great case for the budget confined builder, but those same budget constraints usually dictated that available funds went towards upgraded components, rather than bling, hence the very limited number of 410's with hues.

If you don't have either the white or black case, then RGB led lighting isn't much good, as it usually just muddles colors and looks blahhhhh.

The white case, at least reflects all the colors nicely and seems the most "enhanced" with nice case lighting, with the black cases just a bit behind.

And yes, I still have my little air cooled 410:
With the case and PSU being red, I used white led fans throughout, so that the real colors are accentuated.

Hello,

I was wondering in which Phantom case all of this would fit:
AMD FX 8350 Black Edition Processor
AMD R9 290X Sapphire Vapor X Tri X GPU
Crosshair V Formula Z mobo
16 GB corsair vengeance RAM
Seasonic 750W PSU
1 HDD and 2 SSD's
Swiftech H240-X liquid cooler

I would take the 820 but it seems like overkill for me, it's too big really

Just installed two LED strips on the bottom of my case to give it some underglow. I don't see this on many other cases, but I think it looks badass! The LEDs really don't radiate too much light from the bottom, the camera just really overexaggerates it. It gives off the perfect amount of light.

@OostBlokBoys

I guess there is no downside to overkill really if it is within your budget. You can also think of it as an investment that would allow you to do even more such as installing more GPU's in your rig in the future. PCPartPicker is your friend here, but I guess try to think about upgradability in the future as well.

@iRJ-970

I can imagine thats being pretty sweet biggrin.gif . How did you install the LED's there? what kit did you use

The LED strips I used are right here http://www.amazon.com/partical-5050SMD-Computer-Strip-Self-adhesive/dp/B00NQR7R32/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1429448918&sr=8-1&keywords=home+partical+blue+60cm.

Installing them was really easy, no drilling holes and such. All I had to do was slide the LED strips through these small holes in the front.


Then just use the sticky adhesive to stick them on both sides on the bottom of the case


Simple!
