Truth, I went thru 5, just take ur time and do it lightly is the key. Totally makes it look better being able to see ur components.

Woot, well I just got the phantom, looks epic!

Too bad the TY-140 fan won't fit on the front

Anyways I'm intending to get a corsair HX850 psu and I'm wondering if the 8pin CPU power will go around the motherboard tray without the use of any extensions?

Planning on getting one of these cases (Black) for my upcoming first build (i5 2500k). I just finished reading through this entire thread (yes all 2800+ posts) and had to make a few observations:

1. The Phantom is amazing, indeed the only thing more amazing is the incredible array of mods and the attention to detail in the rigs posted here.
2. The Phantom has an invisible button that turns the LEDs on and off. (At least a dozen people have asked the question).

I also have a question that hasn't been answered already. It concerns the mounting of a side fan (every person who has been part of this thread inwardly groans) but I don't think this is a stupid question.
Deathtrip2k demonstrated (brilliantly) that it is possible to mount a Xigmatek XLF fan with no modifications and still fit a Noctua D14. Now the height of a D14 is listed as 160mm. It should then be possible to mount a smaller HSF, like a Corsair A50/A70 (159.5mm) or a CM Hyper 212+ (158.5mm) with the same side fan but every post I've read on the subject seems to dismiss it as a fantasy. Is there something special about the D14 or is it something I'm missing?

there isn't an invisible button. it you know where it is its very easy to find actually.
listed heights aren't the same as real heights. but you might be able to fit it. never tried it.

I was joking (admittedly in a highly unfunny manner) about the button.
