WOW, how can I never have heard of that Sharkoon Vaya case ?

The white version with a window actually doesn't look like a bad idea for a budget pc. Well it does look really cheap compared to say a Xigmatek Asgard series case but I don't know, cable management seems better and well yeah, that's pretty much it.

Oh ok, just did a quick search and turns out the case isn't available in France so either it actually sucks or that's the reason why I'd never heard of it.

It actually has 4-4.5/10 stars everywhere I look, lol.

But god damnit I dislike the idea of having it on my desk instead of the Phantom. I dont need a damn cardreader and I dont want to remove the bottom drive cage anyway. If it doesnt come with visual upgrades I wasted 2 months and 25 Euros.
I need more opinions guys frown.gif

What's with the card reader thing ? They're of more use than a DVD writer but they're still pretty useless to 90% of people. NZXT wouldn't (or at least it wouldn't be a smart choice) add a card reader, it'd make the case more expensive just for a feature most wouldn't use/want anyway.

I'd wait no matter what but I can see how you wouldn't want to wait 2 months and waste 25 euros for nothing (not to mention you'd have a case you probably don't like hosting your hardware for a while).

Thanks for understanding. biggrin.gif

The biggest problem is, that Ive been waiting for my parts to arrive since 1 month, because I changed a few things up into the better. Now I have them here, super excited to put everything together, but i have no case !!!! Driving me kind of insane. Cant even think clear anymore.



Guess ill just go with the 410, which suits my needs right now better anyway, and when i find the need to upgrade to a new, bigger Phantom, ill sell it and do so. Except somebody here can talk me into doing something else, then ill do that. biggrin.gif

Have a friend with a case you can borrow?
Have an e-waste facility nearby?
Have a drillbit and some plywood lying around? biggrin.gif
A box from a large appliance? That way it's enclosed.

All of these options are free, and even though they're ugly, you'll have a working computer for 3 months. If the new Phantom isn't everything you dreamed, then get the old one or something.

I do have a working laptop, so thats not a problem. I can live without gaming for a few days. Actually Ill be on vacation for 2 weeks in 3 days, so I wont be needing it anyway.
actually I wanted to make sure that everything works when I come back, so I ended up putting it all together on my mainboard box. Damn that was fun biggrin.gif Worked flawlessly right away.
But with the Intel stock cooler installed, I let it run for 5 min. and then entered the BIOS, the CPU was at 44C, that isnt normal, is it?

I checked some youtube videos and I kind of dislike the 410s side panel, with the mesh below the window, also if I have a window I want to see the GPU. So im going with a black phantom and doing a window mod. If the new Phantom comes out and will have some stunning new looks to it, ill just try to sell the old one and get my hands on the new version. That simple.

Thanks everybody for helping me to decide. biggrin.gif

im assuming its similar to the 410...the blinking one will be for your HDD to let you know when its actively reading data...the other one should be for power. If its not lighting id say its wired incorrectly. I own a 410 so i could be wrong redface.gif

I actually never mentioned those effed up LEDs Oo. Thanks for reminding me to ask about them too.
One is the HDD (not sure if it can still be called that because of the SSDs but anyawy, ) LED and the other is the power LED.

The back one on mine barely lights up but it does blink as a HDD LED is meant to (although it looks kind of slow). You'd expect those two LEDs to be as bright as the Fan controller's (about the fan controller LEDs, my front fan LED on the controller isn't the same colour as the others at all, it's a way darker blue and it doesn't make as much light) but no, you have to concentrate real hard in a dark room to see the HDD one blinking and even then it's really hard to see.
As for the Power LED well it simply never lit up.

Wait, I just realized there were 3 LEDs on that side, the two lines and the power botton's. The line closest to the power button and my power button never lit up.



Can anybody else confirm these issues (2 not working LEDs on the left and 1 fan controller LED not working as it should) ? It really is a nuisance now I've been reminded of it frown.gif
