I hate you guys and this website!
All I want to do is MOD now.
So I drilled holes through the small 3.5 bay that was originally in the center of the case and mounted it where the large 3.5 bay was before I took it out this morning.
I used 1 1/8 drill bit. Set the cage under the Optical bay and used the 2 holes on each side that were already there and took a silver sharpie and marked the spots on the bay to drill
Came out clean and I just used some left over short screws that came with the case. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Hey folks ... seems I'm new here

So, after a few years of laptops ... I've decided I need to build another desktop
So I've chosen the Phantom case like all you happy people

Well this is where I'm at, at the moment:
552
Please don't get disturbed by image quality haha

I have removed the 2nd HHD tray
Found my ancient old Scythe Kama bay (ill spray it black later) pulled out the old clicking scythe to put a Noctua in it
Lowered my dvd down to create a bit of a tunnel for it
Put a Coolmaster 120mm on the front for the HDDs

Now the plan is, the place a piece of black acrylic behind the 140mm Noctua keeping air in the case from that and the side fans
Get a 2nd 200mm for the top as exhaust.
Get a corsair H70 and place that in the bottom of 5.25" bays ... I noticed a few of you have already done this ... how did you get it to stay in place ? use the drive clips on the side of the fan casing ?
Again ... more Noctuas on the H70

So hopefully with 2 fans creating a tunnel into the H70, it should be nice and cool smile.gif
From looking at everyone elses images and a bit of measuring, should work out that a GTX 580 should create a nice division in the case

Ram and cpu being cooler in the top
Gfx and hdds in the lower


I'm going to test the PSU mounted both ways ... see what happens with temps
Also thinking of swapping out the grill which covers the 200/230mm fan mount with come clear/tinted acrylic ? thoughts ?

Hide some wires and have a general tidy up smile.gif
Ill keep you posted

How come you have the noctua blowing air out? you should be blowing the hot air out of the top, i personally would scrap puttng a fan there and move that noctua to the front or exhaust.

Apart from that it looks awesome! Whats that huge thing in the 5'25 bays?

What hardware are you using?

The huge thing in the 5'25 bays is a Scythe Kama Bay Plus 5.25. I'm gonna put one (got 2 black) in the 5'25 bays of my Pink Phantom.
