Hey guys, building my first pc together in the next few weeks and Im using the Phantom in black as a case.
Can somebody aware me which fans that it comes with actually have LEDs in them?
If its only the top one I plan on replacing them with BItfenix spectre Pros and adding another NZXT 200mm fan to the top.

Also while browsing through this thread I think ill do a window mod, as the planned CPU cooler wont allow as side panel fan anyway.

How thick should the glass I take be? Plexiglass should be fine, right?

Oh and also I have only the DVD writer to fill one of the 5 drive bays for 5,25" drives. Any ideas what I could fill up at least some of the others with? biggrin.gif
thx in advance

Only the top one has a blue LED.
I've replaced all the others (except the back one) with blue LED fans, the case looks totally awesome smile.gif

For the 5'25, I'm waiting for a NZXT HUE RGB Controller, it looks great biggrin.gif

Thats a really uncool step by nzxt...

The case goes for around 140 Euros here, which is 40 more than in America, so they couldve at least in some more LED Fans, lmao. biggrin.gif

Some site here in Europe has a "Phantom Full Force Editin" which comes with 2x 200mm and 1x 140mm fans for 180€, almost hit the trigger only to find out they are non-LED too. lol. So im going with the Bitfenix, if you can trust the specs they are quieter, move more air, last MUCH longer and also cost less money. lol.

Well, I ordered a XSPC RASA RS240 from FrozenCPU this week (along with some blue tubing, a t for a drain tube, etc) and picked up 4 Medium speed Yate Loons from jab-tech.

I am gonna miss my D14, but can no longer resist the urge to water cool.

At this point, the plan is to mount the radiator on top using push/pull with those Yate Loons.

I have read the Phantom/RASA mounting guide here and feel like I am ready to go.

Any additional advice from those that have done this before??

well, for those who are not part of Evil Jerry's FB group, I have updated my Build log here. I gotta say, it's starting to look like I envisioned all those months ago, just wish I had better tools/materials to work with,

Looks good, reaver!

So I'm trying to get some practice machining and writing build logs before I tear apart my machine so that I'm less likely to mess anything up. I've started an unrelated-to-computers project, and I'm posting a build log for it in the Off Topic forum. I'd really appreciate it if people would stop by and leave feedback. There's a link in my sig.

I'm done being off topic now. tongue.gif

Regarding the Side panel, you can buy for about AUD $45 a replacement window with an acrylic side window instead of the mesh and 200 / 230mm fan mount:thumb:
