Yeah Bill Loved my build and likes my new one also. He also did an article on the build and has became a sponsor on my new Mass Effect 3 build since then.

Article from Mnpctech (Bill Owen) is here:

http://www.mnpctech.com/casemodblog/2012/02/29/nzxt-phantom-venom-pc-mod-is-inspiring/


And Bill is without debate the King of Modding and a huge inspiration to many of the Modder's we see today.Including me of course.


Take Care

5. blue
6.matte clear
If I decide I want to do it, is that the best way?

Yeah that the way! but use red scotch brite pads for sanding plastics

Plus I have to wait on the money so it most likely won't be started untill next week and I've got school so i'll have to spread the work over several days as I probably won't want to wait the weekend to get it all done. Unless SW3D thinks it's best to not let each layer sit a day tongue.gif

well letting the paint dry for a whole day between layers is actually better because each coat sets. and well have better adhesion one on the other.
But not everybody has the patients to do it! that's way i haven't recommended it. I done even wait knowing it's better biggrin.gif

Just to clarify - Is the Silver Arrow CPU cooler in the way of the top 200mm fan, or the (optional) side mounted 200mm fan?
