I do have a couple questions for you:
Did you buy some uv lights or is that the hue lighting up your tubes?
Also, I saw that you put in the 45mm alphacool 360 rad, is there enough between the motherboard and rad to put some fans in push?
Finally, what is your overall impression of the case after your mods? Since I plan on doing a window mod and getting the same radiator, our cases might end up being pretty similar. Except I'm going for matte black with either blue or black tubing.
Thanks man, I appreciate the comment.
With regards to your ques:
1. It is the hue lighting, I did purchase some UV cathodes but didn't need them as the hue has a light setting that gives a UV type effect.
2. Yes there is enough room for a P/P with the alphacool rad, currently I only have a push setup but I did a measurement & it will work. I have my AP-15s pushing air into the rad from the top.
3. Overall I'm very pleased with my purchase, the case is a huge improvement over the original phantom, very quiet & excellent build quality. It has ample room for alot of cooling configurations & I really like the dust filter placement. Haven't had the need to do any cleaning since I've built it. My only gripe is the side panels are a PITA to take off sometimes & imo are the only negatives about this case. Haven't really done alot of modding to it but I definitely think I may add some sort of hinge system for the panels. I love the look it as is so far, it certainly has a beastly appearance sitting on my desk, sometimes I just stare into the window thinking about what next to add
My build isn't 100% completed yet as my funds are tied up in more important priorities but during the course of this year I hope to finish it. As of now I'm just enjoying using it.
Good luck with yours
