I was speaking strictly about moving/taking it with you somewhere. Obviously bigger=better!

I'm ordering a NZXT Phantom in the upcoming month, hopefully it drops in price, so I can afford more accessories.

thanks bro i am trying to find more friends that have cool cameras hahaha its acrylic glass sort of plexiglass what we did was just place it in side and it looked cool once the lights on the nzxt ones were placed but we never planned it would look that awesome biggrin.gif gonna change some parts though and trying to find a strobe light so i can put in the pc blue one so it would have a white and blue theme that is elegant and still rugged looking i the combination of the tubes reflect the led lights

I lugged mine in a Sunbeamtech LAN bag to a friend's house the other weekend and it made me wish I had gone mid-tower frown.gif

Looks like it means business with that rear ext. rad!

I just got my NZXT Phantom case (black) and I love it. I am a total newbie to modding and building, so it will be fun. Not sure of what parts to pick yet though. Here is what I am considering now:

Motherboard: Asus Crosshair V Formula

CPU: Asus Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition

Graphics card: Asus GeForce GTX 590 (I believe it is compatible with the new features of the V formula, correct me if I'm wrong) or Asus Radeon 6990 HD. But I am not sure here, so please come with arguments to help me out if you can.
I am looking forward to modding and building this awesome case, and to talk to more experienced people who uses the same case, as I can see many of you guys in here are extremely skilled at what you do smile.gif

TY

RushMore1205 : I'm looking into watercooling my Phantom as well, and these pics are awesome, thanks a ton:) Question though...is it possible to mount a 360 directly to the back of the case without it blocking the lower two water hoses?

Was also thinking of putting a 240 on the back (and top) and having the 240 external sticking up above the case (Not sure if I describing this correctly...)

Since I'm here, might as well ask...when I do my loop (CPU/GPU), How would I do it? Res>Pump>CPU>Rad>GPU>Rad>Res, or should it be Res>Pump>CPU>GPU>Rad>Rad>Res?

Thanks for the help?

Ninja-Edit: I'm just afraid if I mount a 360 or 240 on the back with only the 120's mount holes for the back fan, they'll bend and whatnot...also moving it...I'm new to WC, so sorry for the noob questions.

ok, no its not possigle to mount the rad flush with the case and not block the holes for the tubing.

i would recomend for best possible resulrs going like this

RES-->PUMP--> RAD--->CPU-->RAD-->GPU---=> back to res

i have tested many differnt configurations and this is the best one

in my signature there is a SEXY RED GOT WET log you should check it out, thats how i have mine set up

you should always go PUMP-->RAD

You can fit 2 240 rads inside the case and also a 360 and 240 with some lite modding. This is my tip to everyone the more surface area you have the better temps you will have.

If you're going 360&240 where do you put them? Like what modding has to be done. I keep seeing it mentioned, but no one is specific.
