Do you guys think that the Phantom II will be much better? I really don't like the looks or even the functionality of this first version at all.

We don't know if the new Phantom will be better. But if you don't like the current one then maybe you're better off with the Switch. I think if the current Phantom does not support XL-ATX, the new one will not either. But this is just what I think...

Agree with KGtuning maybe a Switch 810 is better for you if you dont like the Phantom looks. Phantom you either love or dont.

I made some modifications to my Phantom to accommodate another 240mm radiator. I had to move down the drive bays a few inches in order to jam my old 240mm rad into the drive bay to make room for the new 240 XSPC radiator at the bottom of this case.

I also covered the both sides of the case with fiberglass mesh in an effort to reduce load temps and keep out pet hair.

The end result of all this is about 5c lower load temps on the CPU.

Without breaking NDA, I can honestly say, that while I liked the original Phantom, I thought the Switch 810 was better. The successor... I dunno if it's better than the 810, but I will say, without actually seeing the production version in person, that it's on par with the 810. Though, I believe it will be a better chassis in the end. Time will tell, and I think people are going to have the same reaction to this chassis as they did the original Phantom. They either love it, or hate it. There's not a lot of middle ground. I will say, it does look more aggressive, but refined. It's not a revolutionary design, but it is evolutionary. I quite like it, actually. And that's my personal opinion, not one of employment.

Can you disclose which colors it will be offered in?

Guys - I need some assistance here. I'm attempting to find an aftermarket cooler that will work with my new rig: P8Z77-V Pro, 3770K, 4x4GB Corsair vengeance. I want the NZXT Havik 140, but am unsure if I can get a stick in the DIMM closest to the CPU.

Any help would be appreciated.

No need to give us anymore info on it, what you've told us so far is plenty, thanks. Since I read that it is an updated version of the phantom I thought I would check out the original, my first impressions were that I don't like the original at all, especially not over the Switch 810, but that doesn't mean I won't like the new Phantom. I will wait and see what it's like before making a decision as it is not too long of a wait.

It's definitely getting unveiled October 1st though, right? That's the only bit of info that I really want, cause I don't think I can wait too much longer than that.

Any help would be appreciated.

Since I use Air coolers I always try to choose low profile RAM. I'd never buy Corsair Vengeance as it's simply too tall to use with most decent Air coolers. I usually buy G.Skill Ripjaws RAM as that fits under most Air Coolers. If you don't like G.Skill, then the low profile version of the Vengeance would have been the way to go.

Apart from Noctua and their huge MB and RAM compatibility list for their NH-D14, most heat sink companies don't list what RAM fits under their coolers. It's a real annoyance, and I would like it if they all started compatibility lists as that would make it easier for users to choose their RAM.

To avoid this, I would suggest buying RAM that is lower profile if you plan to air cool your CPU. Unless you're getting high speed RAM that needs the bigger heat spreaders, most lower speed RAM doesn't really require massive heat spreaders at all.

lol, sorry for not answering the question about whether or not the Vengeance would fit with the Havik 140, hopefully another member that has that set up can help you. You should post this question in the Air Cooling section of the forums. I'm pretty sure you'll get a reply there from someone that has that setup.
