TTL is awesome. He's my favorite reviewer. He says his mind, and he's honest. He doesn't suck up to company's for gear, just to sell it on the back end. He's just all around a great guy. Would be a pleasure to grab drinks with him some time...

TTL's videos are long but I don't really mind since I watch them when I've got nothing to do (like once a movie's over but I'm not tired enough to sleep but would probably fall asleep in the middle of another one if I started it).
I guess I'm looking for only helpful but funny and interesting too.

About the case, it looks like they've used a kind of rubbery material on the bottom front and side (which means we're probably not getting a good looking windows panel this time). The LEDs as I suspected just look weird and cheap (my opinion only and its based on a low quality vid, might think differently later when we get proper HD pics).
What I did like is that they've reduced the number of 5.25" bays (the Phantom had loads of those when two or three would've been enough and allowed for more front fans). It's weird but on the nzxt evolve page the front door looks as big as on the first Phantom but in TTL's video it looks more like the 410's small door.

I agree, been watching his videos since like early 2010 when I really got into computers and all that business. What a bloke!

Hey does anybody have an NZXT 200mm fan they're not gonna use? LED or not, doesn't matter. I need 1 more for my build but I don't want to pay $16-20 for one. With it I'll have 5 200mm fans in my modded Phantom biggrin.gif.

First pictures of mods, custom cabling and tidy up. I'm not using the top mounted fan controller, so I've removed all the cabling from the standard setup and instead I'm using the MB fan controllers and the Thermal Radar utility with the Z77 Sabertooth.

The bequiet! Dark Rock Pro 2 is a monster!

I have some 25mm perspex rod on order, which I'm going to use to make some GPU supports for the MSI 660TIs, as they drop quiet a bit under their own weight even without the power cables connected.
