That looks incredible, I know thats a lot of freakin work but you should consider making one for all the grills on your phantom. Especially the front grill. It would make it even more epic!

Aah ok. I just didn't get what he meant by "scuff" the other parts off.. Do I sand the shiny parts..?

So when my z77 board arrived yesterday, I got antsy to start building.

Here she is so far:
450

It's an ivy build so no CPU yet, and I can't seem to find a 680 anywhere. Will probably end up getting a 670, 'cause the 680 is "slight" overkill for me - I only use 1 monitor and am not a bencher.

I need to neaten up some of the cable ties and stuff, but on the whole I think my cable management is pretty decent. No problems closing the rear side panel, and everything is easy to locate. That ******* 24pin ATX connector really screwed with that rubber grommet, though.

No cables visible through the mesh on the rear side panel either, which is a plus. Haha.

don't consider it overkill. get the 680 and you will have sufficient power for any future upgrade.

Tried Assassin's Creed Revelations on it yesterday, played for about half an hour monitoring my temps, and had to stop at 30 min because my temps went higher than I'm comfortable with. (70-80 C)

Won't have money for another 10 weeks, but when I do, I'm gonna have a really nice set up.

Until then, what can I do to improve my temps? I really wanna game for more than 20 to 30 min at a time...

Get the cover open and tilt it so the two small fans are blasting onto the mobo, did it last night and was getting 23 or so at idle. Was chilly last night so that helped. Just get more air flowing around it.

two 120 rads are not enough to cool two gpu blocks and a cpu block.. I'd suggest larger radiators like an EX360 or RS360 or RX240 etc
