That will look amazing. I've wanted to sleeve my PSU in paracord(and it's non modular, very annoying task) for a long time, but I need to save all my cash for some new hardware. I'd post my current hardware, but it's too embarrassing.. LOL. (Let's just say my 8800gt is the best component I have...) I actually bought my phantom so I had more room for better hardware. I bought it about a month ago and now that I am in the market for new hardware I've finally registered on OCN. I've lurked this thread for a long time though, and it was the main reason I decided to buy a Phantom. I'll post a few pics of my Black and Green phantom in a bit so I can be added to the club(it's literally the way it came out of the box though). This case is truthfully beautiful inside and out. It's big(my first full tower), but it's not ugly, it looks like a modern and sleek device even with the fairly large dimensions. Cable management has never been easier either, and a modular PSU would make it even better for me.
My only question about this case, how did you all manage to get the 8pin power connector through the small hole in the upper left of the mobo tray? I couldn't seem to get it to fit... but I'm probably just doing something stupid.

It WILL fit.. but it takes some wiggling. If you dismount the fan it makes it even easier. Take the fan wires out (you can fit them back after) too. Lucky for me, my 8pin is actually a 4+4, so I just put them through one by one.

+ welcome to the club!

Thanks mate.

..and to answer your question, Erakith is completely right. A bit of wiggling and different angles and the cable will fit. I got it fist time, but then after redoing my cable management it was hard to get it back in that hole the second time. smile.gif
(thats what she said) wink.gif

Good luck!

Ehh.. I mounted my PSU differently than I usually do(PSU fan points upwards instead of down, because I have to sit this on the floor, my desk is too small), and I managed to fit it through the hole but there just barely wasn't enough space to reach the connector comfortably. I only needed to use four pins(a sign I'm in need of some new hardware), so I grabbed a small 2x2 extension I had laying around and I just used it and connected it behind the mobo tray. It isn't nearly as pretty as it could be(ugly white connector on it), but it works.

Anyway, I've got a pic for it now. I would take more, but I'm too lazy(after I drop in new hardware I'll gladly upload some more pics). I think this is one of the worst pics my phone camera has ever taken for some reason... that nametag really didn't turn out.

That is in fact the stock AMD heatsink, I had something nicer I would use, but it didn't fit in my old case very well, so I gave it to a friend and used the stock one. Graphics card is an EVGA GTX 8800gt OC'd to 702mhz. The card above that is the Blackmagic Intensity Pro. It's a very nice HD capture card.

I can't wait until I can grab some new hardware to put in here. I'm looking at the Ivy Bridge i5 3570k and a GTX 670 2gb Superclocked, possibly FTW, it all depends on availability and pricing when it comes time to order this time around. I've not decided on the motherboard yet either, but I think I found one I like. Now I just need to fund my project and we will all be good. What do you guys think I should buy first, the GFX card, or the mobo and processor? I will not be able to get both and once, and either purchase will have to wait a bit, but it's worth the wait if it means I'll be able to grab some new hardware.

Email NZXT and they'll send you a splitter. They sent a couple to me free of charge.

There will be a splitter that comes with the case, it is already connected to the button waiting for a second NZXT fan.

Also, when you buy a new fan you will also receive a splitter and a button. smile.gif



Just realised one of my screws has somehow fallen out and my fan is on an angle. Fk.
