Here's a pic of my Rig

Also i am having trouble getting the small HDD cage unscrewed, i have tried many different screwdrivers but the screws just won't come off, some of them have gone commando on me with their grooves chipped off for good, anybody has any suggestions on how to get those F**ng things off without damaging the Cabinet. They are a real PITA to work with and i'm literally at my wits end dealing with them since i got the Cabby.

Thanks for the pointers on OC.

Now regarding the Screws, i am bit hesitant about using a drill bit to drill out holes in my chassis, it might void it's warranty, any other suggestion to get those stubborn little things out peacefully?

Or should i just RMA the whole chassis, provided it can be based on faulty screws ?

I understand the persons concerns and think a call to nzxt to discuss/report the issue of the screw holes may help qa issues with the case manufacturing.
they may also send him some replacement screws.

I am ordering about $1650 us on wc gear right now.
It all depends on what parts you have and your budget.

I am building my own version of Kenny's v.1 phantom mod with 3 rad's 1 360, 1 240, and 1 120. All black bitspower rotary compression fittings. UV orange 3/8 in 1/2 od tubing. Powered by two swifttech mcp655-b pumps.

What do you want to Watercool and why?
If budget is a issue get a corsair h50 or H70 with push pull.

I am about sick of working with the case firstly the spring loaded thumb screws for the back of the case broke so I sent in for a RMA and recieved the wrong parts, but I thought oh well I really don't need it.

Then I sent in for a RMA for my FN200 got sent a FN140 called in got the right fan, but this current FN200 still makes a clicking noise while running.

Best of all the 120mm fans that come with the case are starting to click also and the LED light switch on the back of the case is some what broken because it is sunken into the case making it nearly impossible to switch it from on and off.

The customer service has been friendly but the quality control is really starting me make me wonder.

I guess I will have to call tomorrow and talk to them, but I am not looking forward to taking my computer apart and putting it back together for the 4th time in the past month due to these case problems, I have gone through a tube of NT-H1 because of it and that stuff isn't cheep at $10 a pop.

Also is anyone else having as bad of luck with their phantom as I am?
