NZXT Phantom Orange

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I am planning on using the black and orange NZXT Phantom, and I was hoping I could try and make all my components orange. Unfortunately I can't, will getting non-orange components make it look weird or should I just get the black one. If I get the black one does anyone recommend any colour schemes or LEDs (colour of LEDs). I'm gonna get the window whenever it becomes available in the UK, if it already is feel free to leave a link.

Orange SATA cables would be easy to get, along with maybe fan grills. I suggest you Google "Orange Phantom build" and see what others did. I would suggest all black components along with some white ones. Modsmart might make some orange sleeved extensions as well.

or..... Just go for the black one but if you like the Orange and can afford the time and money to find the parts go for it.

Thanks, I found a build but the specs weren't clear. Know any black Z68 motherboards or do you think red will be ok? What colour could I use for the black?

I believe all the Asus rock Extreme gen 3 boards are all black

Most people will use White and blue with a Black build...unless you want red

There is a quite active Phantom owners club around here as well.

Love it. Did you paint the fans or buy them ?

I'll assume you painted the PCI clot covers and the HDD caddy's, a bit of model paint on the mobo heatsinks ?
