Yeah.

Buy some acrylic, jigsaw your side, file it down, add some U-channel molding and viola.

Well I have built 4 systems now with 3 Phantoms and 1 Corsair 600t.








And my verdict goes as follows:

Corsair:

Quality wise the best. The paint is really nice, the cable gromets are bigger and stiffer, there is more than enough space behind the motherboard tray to get rid of the biggest cables. The side panels are taken of very easily, overall the case feels really solid. An overclocked i7 overheats in this case. I am not happy with the out of the box airflow, it runs too hot and the motherboard overheats too (60 degrees+).

The 2 200mm fans generate some noise, more than the Phantom.

Phantom:

Slightly less awesome cable management but still good enough nonetheless. Awesome finish. If you outfit it with all the fans you get supreme cooling. I have never had a case that is this silent (if you outfit it with some silent fans) and this cool at the same time. I love this case so much I ordered all 3 colors! If you tweak the fan controllers you can get a very silent and yet very cool system, cooler and more silent than the corsair.

My personal opinion is that if you want a 'business' PC that has to compete to a MacPro in Looks and quality than the corsair is your thing, everything is 110% on that case.

If you want a rig that can do some extreme overclocking and gaming I suggest the Phantom.

I have a problem and I can't figure it out. here are 4 cables that I presume have to do with the fan controller, but I have NO CLUE where to plug these up.

Can you do me a favor and please take photos of where they're supposed to be inserted so I can get this rig up and running? At a standstill until then.

Well I have 2 seperate cables that are meant for 2 additional fans (they have 3 little holes in them each). You could connect 2 system fans to those so you get them connected to the fancontroller too. You also have some cables that run from the same place and they are for Sound, USB3, USB2 and Firewire.

Your system can run fine without those. I suggest reading up in the manual what they are, they are easy to connect down near the bottom of your board. You can run in fine without. There is also a 4 pin molex connector running from it that needs to be connected to the power supply. This connector feeds power to the fan controller so it can power the fans.

Just fire it up and see what happens! If the fans don't work you did something wrong (relax nothing will break). Fortunately it is hard to connect stuff the wrong way, just make sure your USB and audio cables are connected the right way. On some of my systems I don't even connect it because it sounds crap and I don't use the USB anyway.

Good Luck!

Good Luck!
These are the wires I'm referring to (See Attachment)

EDIT: Figured it out. Those are caps on there. Didn't know from looking at them at all.

I would go with the phantom, buy a bolt on window kit and buy some white led chains and omgasm.

The NZXT Phantom has better cooling than the 600t.
