The plan is to have a small micro controller hidden in the Phantom connected internally to a USB port, such that I can control it from both a switch panel and a windows/linux app.
I'm looking for some ideas of what sorts of things I can or should do. Some current ideas are:
RGB LEDs everywhere! with dials on the control panel and application
Temperature controlled vents, so that when my rig heats up as I game or program, the whole machine opens like an intimidating beast. Also with override to leave them open all of the time.
opening doors and side panels with a single push button. Like a Lamborghini.
If you had a rig that was almost as smart as you are (you're all intelligent people!) What would it do?

I'm in the last stages of planning this project. If anyone has any last suggestions for crazy ridiculous things they would like to see in a phantom, let me know! If you've ever thought to yourself, "I wish I had more control over this feature" or "I wish I could do this with my case", those are the kinds of things I'm looking for.

No, I'm not putting a cookie baking system in it. For now.

How about a gull wing side window panel with a power swing out touch screen for . . . .


Ohh . . wait . . never mind . . that's for my 820 SLE build . .

But it would look cool in a phantom too . . .

I am planning on gullwing sides. I'll leave the touch screen magic to your build. tongue.gif

Finally applied to the club, I have been waiting until I finished making my computer pretty, I have however been too lazy to do so.

Pics!

Hey guys,

I'm thinking of purchasing an extra fan or two for my new Phantom case.

Do you recommending installing a:
140mm front-case fan
or
an additional 200mm top-case fan
or
both?

I don't need or have room for a side case fan (I have a 212 Evo cpu cooler).

Thanks in advance.

I'm doing both when I put my new card in on Christmas. I got another 120 for the front that's going to pull, then my 2 200's up top will push. Should keep the airflow moving very well in there until I can get a waterblock for the new card.

Lol! That thought never even occurred to me. I remember I did that once when I was a kid. There was a Gameboy game (dating myself, I know) that I really wanted... so I matched up an old box to the presents. My mom let me open one gift early, so I opened one of the 2 that were that size. I got a wallet the day before Christmas that year. Well played mother

You're going to need the box dimension if you're going to ship it, am I right? tongue.gif
