The weekend approaches and it's gonna be filled with work on the Phantom.
I have more toys arriving tomorrow and the backplate aluminum cuts are here! This time the plates arrived in perfect condition so I have to mark and drill out the mounting points, cut the GPU back vent design, and take them to get powder coated in black. THEN I will finish off the inside edges of the vents in metallic red and mount them.
Also, I pulled the trigger and upgraded the CPU rad to a Phobya G-Changer 360mm Ver. 2. The 240mm rad just doesn't look right attached to the Phobya 1080:
I will post new pics once I get the new Rad attached. I'm still toying with the idea of building an extension of the existing box with the same mesh front so it's more "fluid" and the CPU rad doesn't stand out so much. I don't have little ones and the cat won't go near the rads (she just sits and stares at the pretty lights from a distance) so I'm not worried about little fingers or paws in the fan blades, but aesthetics trigger my "OCD" hardcore.
I've also decided to polish the EK SLI Bridge so that the acrylic matches the Bitspower 240 Res (another OCD moment).
I will make sure to post pics of the progress. Speaking of pics, I just realized I have some serious catching up to do with the pics in my build log....OOPS.
