NZXT Phantom 820 * Stretched Limo Edition * [ build log ] - Page 38

post #371 of 990

Not much of a Weekend Update this week,

Opted for a kinda lazy weekend, since I had to go into work for a while last night, and I need to rest up for the 630's when they get here, lol. biggrin.gif

I did get to play with the red Mayhem's Aurora a little bit though,

It actually looks way cooler than my el-cheapo video makes it seem. The camera makes it rather orangey, because of the internal CCFL in the res, but it looks bright scarlet red to the eye.

It also has a nicer, more pronounced, lazy aurora effect, at lower pump speeds, and tends to foam at really high speeds, although that dissipates when slowed back down for a while. The res creates a unique effect at the intermediate pump speeds.

I mixed according to the directions, but I may enrichen the mix a bit to see how that effects it.

I'd like to see it a bit more of bold red when the CCFL is on.

Here's a couple little videos:

If you watch the display, you can see as I increment the pumps speeds, (2 readings on the right) up from the 1000 rpm minimum to max ~4500, and then back down again.

The center reading is the flow rate in ml/m.

With the internal CCFL in on, it wreaks havok with the camera getting the red to show as red, it looks real orangey, although it's scarlet red to the eye.


Here it is with the CCFL turned off, the camera gets the color a lot more accurately, and it looks like Aurora usually looks: . . though you loose the effect that the light accentuates at the more intermediate to higher pump speeds


And a regular pic that gets the color fairly close, although still a bit too orangey, to what the eye sees with the CCFL on:

I'm the Slots Department manager at a casino.

I love what I do. . . . Wouldn't want to trade jobs with anybody

It's exciting, fast paced, and everyday brings something new, but it can be pretty high stress, working on custom stuff, computers and rebreathers, is my stress buster.

I'm expecting 2 of the new 630's, and there's 4 of the 820's.

The last, (fourth) 820 was supposed to be a gunmetal one, with the plan to take some of the white parts that I didn't use in the stretch, plus another white plastic top panel, to do a mix 'n match build, but they sent me another white one, so that plan got passed on to the 630's while I decide what to do with the white 820. . . . maybe something simple and clean like a reverse atx mod. . . . . ooops, wait, that's not at all so simple with an 820, gotta do some serious planning now.


The idea of Mix 'n Match builds would work great for a couple buddies wanting to do unique builds.

Each gets a different color of the same series case, (I personally think white and gunmetal are the most complimentary) and then swap the plastic trim parts and interior drive cages or whatever they decide looks nicest.

Doing one as a reverse atx would complete the compliment.

Thank you for the very kind words.

Yes, They seem to like my ideas and my work . . .

The 630's are from NZXT, so when they arrive, I'll be putting that build log in the sponsored build logs section, although there will still be significant crossover between those builds and this one.

One of the plusses of running the builds concurrently is that I can more easily compare and contrast working with each case, and what each may better lend itself to.
