My new NZXT Phantom build is now up and running. This wasn't a planned build, but my old system died badly after my Cool IT ECO ALC failed and deposited it's contents all over my mobo and GTX460 cards. The mobo never recovered, so although a little ahead of my usual 3 year upgrade schedule, I decided to put together a replacement build.
Although I've worked in IT for 20+ years, this is the first time I've built a system from scratch, as I wanted something a little more unique and tailored.
I've completed the base build and everything is running fine, with my old boot and user drives working first time in the new build, which has saved me a lot of pain in having to recover the data.
I have the white Phantom case with a Z77 Sabertooth motherboard and Dark Rock 2 cooler, which gives a very clean look to the system.
I've replaced the rear and side panel fans with be quiet! Silent Wings 2 fans and also added a 140mm Silent Wings 2 front case fan.
I'm looking to build some contrasting custom cabling for all the internal Z77 and connections.
My current thoughts are mid blue braided cabling with orange connectors, as I've ordered some Crucial Ballistix Tracer DIMMs with the blue and orange LEDs.
I'm comfortable building custom cables as I've done this previously for custom ICE installs.
Does anyone have any recommendations as to where to get good quality coloured fan, ATX and SATA power connectors etc, preferably from a vendor in the UK?
