Project Phantom: NZXT Phantom 820 Matte Black Build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello All,

Welcome to my new build log! Building the Phantom (For lack of a better name).

I'm slowly going to be upgrading this over the next few weeks and months.

Most of this as come over from my old system(Specs should be below)

Anyways, onto what you guys like!


Specs and Proposed Specs


Already Got:
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth z77
CPU: Intel i5 3570K @4.8GHz
Ram: 16GB Corsair Dominator
GFX: ATI HD7850
SSD: 128GB Crucial M4 (OS Drive)
HDD: 2TB WD Scorpio Black
Case: Phantom 820
PSU: Akasa Venom 750W Modular Power Supply

CPU is watercooled using XSPC WC Gear.

Planned

More SSD space!

Looking at getting:

2/4 x Crucial M4 128GB for RAID 0
(Undecided on 2 or 4 at the moment! Also depends on what the missus lets me have tongue.gif)

XFire HD7950/7970 (Again depends on the missus) - Possibly WC them.

More HDD Space.

To be fair, right now I'm not sure what I'm going for. But hopefully you guys can help there aswell smile.gif

I got the Phantom 820 through today, and it's amazing. I love it, I didn't get any pictures while building, but i got some after it was finished.
