3GB 580 maybe? Thought 1280MB would be enough.. Borderline already (Hitting 1.3GB in BF3)
What would you recommend doing??

hey phantom, how did you do the inside of your case matte black?
I've been looking for a solution for a while, but did you de-rivet the inside and spray the inside panels separately? or just work with them all on?

Oh and did you primer? or just spray matte straight on?

sorry for all the questions haha:D

Don't worry about it...... I just ordered a few sheets of wet n dry and large roll of masking tape, spent a good couple of hours sanding it down.. Not too much! Leaving the original paint job on but the shine from the white will look like a white matt leaving a courser surface to paint on.

Don't get me wrong you could just spray over it! Nothing to say it won't scratch easy or peel off in time.

Then ordered a really tough matt black primer (not etching primer) Only use this if you go directly onto bare metal I believe... Or if you sand your case until it's shiny silver haha! Then get it!! I personally ordered 'plasti-kote' black super primer from eBay.

Masked literally everything up that I didn't want painting, taken out the removable rack... Didn't mess around with taking rivets out.

Sprayed about 10 very thin layers over the entire interior of case... leaving a good 20min in between coats. (You can sand very lightly in between coats with a finer grade of wet n dry but I personally didn't bother as was happy with the surface)

Then just went to halfords and picked up a matt black spray paint and repeated the painting process.

It was my first every spray paint job and even after doing 20 odd coats it was still applied a little too thick so I cured it with a heat gun..

I'll be totally honest, have tried scratching it... just to see how tough it is!! and it has dried like stone..

(You probably already know all this.... Just thought I'd explain the process I taken)

All In all cost me around £20.00 to do!!!

You don't need a 3gb for 1080p. Its a waste imo. 3gb cards are for surround. BF3 seems to take whatever ram it can get. So just because you see it maxed doesn't mean your performance is suffering. I would stick with what you have as those 570's would crush any single card solution you could get. Its up to you though its your money. It would be nice if you at least had the 1.5gb's that a 580 offers. But I think I would take the massive performance increase over a vram upgrade. A 3gb 580 is almost as much as 2x 570s.

You need to drill the rivets out of the large HDD bay to get it out. Num talks about it here in his guide.

If you plan to just get one rad I recommend putting it in the top of your case. Its much easier to drain your loop that way. With the rad on the bottom it becomes the lowest point.

If you were going to get an RX in there you would have no fans on the bottom of it. And without heavy modding you can only fin two fans on top. So a 360 rad with 2 fans sounds pretty lame to me.

i would agree the whole point of the pantom looks awesome is because of the 2 monster fans on top and to remove them would be a waste there is another alternative but it would require a very skilled hand and a deep pocket kinda hard to explain on forums but its behind my mind with all the madness in me biggrin.gif
