Looks pretty nice you should maybe get some white fans for getting a "whiter" look


Sweet case!

Modded in new side window...i like it and think i did OK, messed up a few corners and one of the cuts is not perfectly straight...i also have no u-channel molding because lowes didn't have anything that would have worked so eventually i will get that and put it on...next to do is to small HDD bay where the big one is and put a second 240rad down there.

i just used double sided tape haha...stays up well and is easily removable...i have seen that website and looked at that stuff there and its cheap...they they wanna charge me like $15 for shipping! bastards lol

FYI...if you see how far back my window is, is causes that case door not to be-able to close tightly...it latches in the middle but can not be screwed in on top or bottom and is bowed out just a bit...the plexy is just hitting the frame is. but it is hardly noticeable.

Sweet, I'm broke right now, so I think I'm going to wait until this summer and buy a 2500$ rig, should be sweet, I'm just gonna wait for ivy bridge and Kepler, whatever it's called.
I was going to do it Liquid cooled, so that's why I was wondering. Thanks!

yah...deff go water cooled...and if your gonna have a 2500.00 limit you can buy a kick ass system thats for sure...i suggest that you shop around and buy either a 670-680-or690 with a water block already installed on it...evga always brings out one so look for that from them...but im sure a 690 with a water block is gonna run the $1000.00 range so maybe a 670 should do haha

I freaking love these phantom cases, really makes me regret my Lanboy Air purchase, but I still love it :-)

Great job btw. +1
