This are the parts that are going to be used in the build!

This is the main inspiration for the black and gold theme. Very good reviews and in addition it brings a Game Blaster that's using the Creative's Sound Core 3D quad core audio processor.

This is the processor that's going to be used I know it not the top high end thing. But I have done my research and it turns out to be a very good processor better than i7 2600K and 2700K so I'm good.
400

This is the ram that's going into my build, This ram is 16gb kit running @ 2133Mhz with timings of 9-11-10-27 Quad Channel memory and I'm installing 32Gb of ram.
400

This is going to be my graphic power for my build. There going to be in a SLI configuration.
600

Well here it goes. Decide and was requested to do a build log, So I can show my progress with my modification to my Phantom case. Loved it since the first time a laid eye's on it. My wife gave it to me as a X-mas present a year ago.

When I saw the sheer size of it love it, The space and looks just was something out of the ordinary.

I decided to make some changes to my Phantom to make it look more sexy more eye catching .

The Hardware to be used is:

Intel Sandy Brigde -E 3820 quad core

Asrock X79 Extreme6/GB

Gskill Ripjaws Z @ 2133Mhz 32Gb

BFG 1000w PSU

Western Digital 1Tb hard drive

Corsair H80 Hydro cooler

338

I'll start off with this picture showing how i had my PC before deciding to mod it.

As you can see, Even tho the Phantom has cable management I sucked at it.

Next up is the NZXT 200mm Fan that came in the case, This fan has 4 LED's. But noticed that there is 4 additional holes for lights so I'm going to put those to use.

AHH nice!! Thank you guys for subscribing biggrin.gif

Ahh, clever man... not too much gold. One common mistake a few people make. Colours like Gold, Chrome, Silver and Platinum... should be used in moderation. If done right, looks better than you could ever imagine, and I do believe that's what I'm seeing here. Kudos! thumb.gif

Also good to see you're using a more of a matte gold... not an overly shiny chrome-like reflection. Will be looking forward to the end result. wink.gif

yeah I was trying to keep the design of the Phantom. I like modding but I want to keep the features implemented when they created it. I want to elevate and show the fine details already givin by NZXT.

And like the saying goes Sometimes less is more !
