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

Where'd you hear this? lol

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!

Oh, I dare! I triple-dog dare! smile.gif

If you're like me, you go through cases like a lunatic. Rest assured, it won't be too long before the NDA lifts and I can show all of you shiny pictures.

thanks for reply! biggrin.gif

As I said in my previous post, I can't discuss details of it until the NDA is lifted.

Cheers.

I'm at my dad's right now so I've got tools and I can do proper measuring. I'll have my "drawings" fixed in like half an hour or so. But that's not quite exactly why I came here. Thing is, believe it or not, at my mom's we don't have a drill so while I'm with my dad I'd like to take the big HDD cage out so the case is ready for the bottom rad but I have no idea which drill bit I need to get rid of the rivets. Lots of you have done that "mod" and I was kind of hoping you could help me out here.

Oh and I can't remember who's in charge here (I think eviljerry is) but I'll be more than happy to make a clean "drawing" of the inside of the case and basic dimensions you'd want to know if you're planning on water cooling.

Oh and I was quite surprised when I measured the ~200mm fans, they're actually 30mm thick. I don't know why but I thought they were 25mm like most of the smaller fans.

EDIT:


Didn't find a reason to measure "rear to mobo". It looks like because of the top rad the reservoir won't fit but I'm pretty confident it will fit between both of the rad's fittings.

Should be an 1/8 inch drill bit. Eviljerry runs the Phantom group. but it does not need to be a specific size drill bit to remove the rivot just as long as you remove the middle of the rivot it will fall apart.
