Look at MY RIG PICS. There is few pics of cables at the back side.

It's all in how you route them, I had mine done and thought I did a pretty good job until I tried to get my panel on... They I redid the wiring, mostly the Motherboard Power and now I don't have to apply any pressure when putting the rightside panel on... Took me a while to figure out where exactly each wire would work best though..

Are there any phantoms with USB 3.0 front ports?

I'm tempted to jump on the NZXT bandwagon when I rebuild my SB rig after the recall, but I kinda want a case with USB 3.0 in the front.

I'm pretty sloppy with my cables back there, and I have no trouble at all.

Nope. They're USB 2.0. 3.0 likely won't be a standard for a long time to come.

Boo. I know a few cases with 3.0 front panels... but they don't look as sexy as the phantom.

I got my Phantom! So excited!! Till.... I opened the box and saw the front cover off the computer and saw this,

&


So any suggestions on fixing it? I was thinking epoxy maybe? I am pretty bummed.. I really don't want to wait to RMA it but if that is the only way then that is the only way.

Only reason I was afraid of going back to a metal/plastic case was the plastic breaks & my fear came true before I even used it..

After a lengthy drive, i have my Phantom



After the component install, still needs to have some more cable management done though


2x 200mm NZXT Fans in the top




Yet to buy a dremel, when i do i'll cut the window to size but still leave the mesh on


Love the case, so much more space than my previous one. My only real gripe with it is the flimsy feel of the case sides, as they flex quite a bit and aren't very straight to begin with.

No, don't even try and fix it and you don't need to RMA it to get it fixed.

Call NZXT, it's the corporate number on their website. Choose the option for customer service and they'll send you the replacement parts for free.
