At first, I thought the Red was a bit bold, but it's starting to grow on me. I also like it because few people have them and so I could make a nice contribution to this club by showcasing a build with one.

How do you guys think this would look with these components? If you think the red is too bold and that's why few seem to buy them, then please let me know. lol

I've already bought the TP67XE, 6870, and Ripjaws. However, on the PSU, I can't decide whether an the AX750, NZXT Hale90, or red/black Antec or Cougar unit would look better in the build. frown.gif What do you guys think?

Thanks for the Help!

I know what you feel like. I thought about the black first,bur thought all the cases I have had were black. The white is clean looking. And with that black screens looks really good. So I went to frys today to look at them. They had black and white,no red. I was there checking out the case and this little hottie started looking at it to.She was saying how sleek and sexy it looked. I said the black and white are nice but the red one was just hot. She gos there is a red one. I showed her a pic from my phone and she just thought that is very sexy.
The red one will go with my theme.

Thats the best part about build yourself computers.

BTW that ram looks very cool.

Thanks! I would really appreciate it. smile.gif

Sweet, so the Red Phantom will help me get the ladies, too? eek.gif

But in all seriousness, The Phantom is by far the best bang for your buck case you can buy. If I can find it on sale, I'll grab it in a heartbeat. It's $139 Shipped at its cheapest right now. I would give anything if I would have thought to snag one during Christmas or Black Friday when they were $99.

I love the Phantoms but the only downside is that so many people have them and it's tough to make yours look unique from the rest. That's where the Red one comes in. ^_^ I was planning on going with a Red/Black anyways because I'm not crazy about blue LED's, so I will swap those out for Red later. The ratio of Phantom owners overall is like 48% White, 48% Black, 2% Red. lol Therefore, it would definitely be a unique build and I think it would look great.

Newegg has the white one with free shipping. Frys said they would match and in most casese beat newegg price.

I looked at every case I saw today at frys. All but 2 or 3 had the same thing in common...a box look.

A royal blue or navy blue with chrome/silver accents would be my phantom preference.

Has anyone used the NZXT LED Sleeve kits in their Phantom? They look pretty legit.

I managed to fit 3 of these n my case! The screw holes in fact do not line up. The good news though, zip ties work with the door, and the top fans fit tight in the top and fortunately don't need to be screwed in. 1 zip tie secured both. You hardly notice. Pics comng soon

I would have bought it instantly if it was blue, something like the Acer G7200 case.That way I wouldn't have had to decide one week if i should buy a white or black on... I wonder why they don't make this awesome cases in blue? I'm sure they would sell them better then the red ones. Maybe because Alienware has also blue cases.
