You ever thought of changing the blue LEDS on the top to red? I've got Red LEDs on all my fans like you, and don't like how the power and case fan lights are blue. (my case is red too...)

as long as you know the details of such LEDs, replacing them with red shouldn't be an issue obviously need to know how to use a soldering iron

so this was a bit of progress over the last few years and I'm happy to say (without getting a full custom loop for my system) I'm finally done with my phantom. Hated the case when i first saw it in store and then picked it up the next day after falling in love with it.

Just the same general mods, got rid of the drive bays but since i wasn't using the 5 inch bay drive, i slotted the larger drive bay inside it allowing me to still have removable drives behind the filters (also tried my hand at custom sleeving sata cables, it's ain't bad)

Used 1/4 inch glass side panel mod, i made a how to for those wondering (spray paint is called NITE-SHADE, found in automotive section for tail lights)

and used the old rivet holes of the larger drive bay to attach a removable 120mm fan which as my secondary intake fan
and another 120mm fan, to the right of the motherboard, i use to circulate the air and pull heat off the HDDs and SSDs that now sit in the 5inch bay





the 3-1/2 inch bay was wedged in place with eva foam and 3M VHB tape and sits snugly in the 5inch hole.




Outside the few little mods here and there, i'll still be keeping the case for another few years. Thanks NZXT for making the phantom

currently;
i5 6600k
gigabyte z170 gaming k3
asus 1070
NZXT HALE 90- 750W

Dont u have dust problems ? U have super negative pressure in the case ( only 2 intake fan and 5 exhaust )

2 intakes (NZXT 120 mm and silverstone AP 121 high airflow fan)

and 3 exhausts not 5 (unless you count the center circulation fan,which just pulls air from the HDDs since air actually doesn't move much around at that point, and the 2 for the H75 in place then i guess i have 5?). Dust isn't too bad actually. i have a cat so I'm more accustomed to constantly cleaning it every other week, just a quick wipe down with a microfiber cloth.

the 2 exhausts at the top are the 2 original 200mm fans that come with the case.

Yes u have 5 exhaust
2*20cm NZXT FN ( 2*166CFM ) +2x Corsair 12cm on rad (2* 70 CFM ) +1x PSU fan (its exhaust also : 50-80 CFM ) in total you have 500+ CFM exhaust .But only 120 CFM intake from the 2x 12fan.
Check this thread ,to learn more about airflow . This is very informative and helpful

Please see the first post of this thread. I and a few others have made a 360 radiator fit. I wouldn't suggest any larger but if you're good with metal work than anything could be possible.

Here's my build log:
