I'm still looking inot options for my SSD and HDD so that's why I'm asking smile.gif

Yes the wires are not the nicest but without making the wires 5 feet long. I only have a dvd drive in the bottom slot and don't plan on using the rest. My res will be right behind the bays so the wires are not visible. I'd show you a picture but I can't upload from my phone.

Oh well I'll probably find another solution then (or tuck the wires under the DVD driver which I put in the bottom slot too). I've not got a modded side pannel so the 5.25" bays are kind of like a window to me so that's why a mess in there would actually bother me.

As for uploading pics with a phone not many people know how to and I don't know what kind of phone you've got but I know that on android devices you can use URLy to upload pictures to imageshack. iPhones and windows Phones probably have something similar if not that very same app.

I've still got two days before I know whether or not I'll be getting the parts (rads, 4 noctuas, pump+plexi top, cpu wb and apperently a reservoir as he told me he could probably clean it). The guy's in england until the 28th and when you're on vacation you have better stuff to do than check your inbox. So yeah, I'm trying to have everything planned before the 28th which is why I keep asking you plenty questions and so far you've been of good assistance so thanks for that.

I mean its not a "mess" but its bundle of cable through the 5.25bay ...two SATA 3 cables and each SATA power cable is 5 wires sleeved, so 10 wires in 550 paracord. Not much I can do with that but its hidden for the most part.

As for why it's more expensive in AUS, probably because of shipping.

What will be replacing the Phantom, or just a new model?
It kinda sucks living in Aus Looking at NewEggs prices it would save me close to $200 in the US. frown.gif though i'd probably just buy better hardware in that case.

There will be a new Phantom, of course. smile.gif Can't talk about it until the NDA lifts, but... It's pretty sexy. smile.gif

I hear that this phantom basically has common mods already done to it. Don't quote me on this.

Don't you dare! I'm just about to mod mine, and I definitely couldn't resist a nice shiny new case! Another excuse to rebuild my computer... curse you NZXT!

Alright so I got my swiftech220 and pump in. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
424b254c-bd9f-bdd6.jpg
But then I realized the 120mm rad doesn't line up with the 120mm fan holes on the case (because of the I/O panel). Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
424b254c-bdb7-2dbe.jpg
I was thinking I could mount it here. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
424b254c-bdf8-633c.jpg
Any other suggestions on where I could place it?

edit: and I apologize for the pics. all of them could be rotated and edited but its from my phone. im lazy haha tongue.gif

You have options. Easiest is what you've suggested. Otherwise if you are careful enough with a vacuum (to keep metal flakes from getting into your components, or take them out) you could drill and tap new holes for your original idea?
