All most pulled the plug on a 630 matt black open box but then I realized I don't have anything to put in it so I walked away :(

Getting my NZXT Phantom Black tomorrow as my first build. Very excited to use this beautiful case. Had some doubts after buying it in seeing how difficult it was to water cool but seeing the 360mm radiator mods you guys have posted here reassured me and i'm looking forward to, when my budget permits, water cooling it. Some of you guys' custom paint also looks incredible. Would defiantly wanna give that a try at some point. Had a tight budget on this system so i'll be adding to it later. If I do any real case modding, i'll defiantly post pictures

Specs:
CPU - AMD FX-6300 6 core 4.1Ghz
Motherboard - MSI 970-G43 (RMA-ing for a higher-end GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3)
Memory - 4gb x2 Team 1866Mhz (Buying another pair for 16 gb soon)
HDD - 1TB WD (Adding a 128gb SSD at some point, maybe with the motherboard)
Screen - Acer 21.5" IPS-LCD 5ms
Drive - ASUS DVD-RW
GPU - Saphire Radeon 7850 2Gb (Might dual-crossfire at some point)

Let's hope I don't screw something up! tongue.gif

I doubt you'll mess anything up, and on the bright side if you have an issue this forum is very good about helping out. I've been thrilled with my case, though I didn't go the 'paint' route and used a custom vinyl instead.

Good luck with your build, and post up pictures here once its up and running.

Sure thing! Got it in the mail today and OH MY GOD it's a beauty. Parts where supposed to come but I guess the UPS guy got lost. >.< Decided to RMA a couple things so it'll be probably be the Monday after next (the 12th) before I can have it up and running. Disappointing but WOW its pretty <3

-Edit- Do you guys think I should start a build log? I'd probably wait till I had the stuff here but I rather enjoy taking pictures of stuff and am really going for some aesthetics. I'd hate to pollute the forum with more useless junk but if people want to see it. Might just post some pic's here.

Even if you just use pcpartpicker.com to make a build log, make a build log -- you'll not regret it.

Heres my Rig. First step into LC.

Just put in my H220, running at 5.0GHZ on an i7 2600k.

200mm Fan mod and Window mod. Just did the fan mod today!

Okay, so been lurking this thread for quite a bit now and after having my mind blown enough times to paint the house red three times over, I have a couple questions if anyone wouldn't mind helping. I know some people, like k3nny, have stuff specifically to their own build and I might not get an answer to questions that pertain to those topics, but I'm fine with that. So:

What material is best to use (for someone who has no DIY experience really) when modding your case?
(Question pertaining to one of k3nny's creations) How would one go about making a panel that separates the bottom of the case from the upper portion of it?


....I thought I had a lot more questions but I seem to be drawing a blank. Anyway, everyone's cases look amazing. I hope to mod mine to something that looks even half as cool as what you all have shown soon, and to post some pics of it up here.

Plexiglass or acrylic... can be bought at most hardware stores or home improvement stores.

Thank you! What tools are best for cutting either of those?
