Yes the strips Five the plexi Window like a original Window Panel, the Magnets hold very well the plexi if you want you can fix 2 more in the Middle on the of the Stripes. For me i don't have Problems with 4 Magnets.

Cool, can you please tell me the size of the panel you bought and the thickness?

Hey guys, I have been following this thread for awhile while planning my first ever build. I do a lot of photoshop and video editing so I actually have a need for these parts. Anyways I am planning to order my parts after Christmas but I do still have some questions about how these parts will fit into this case.

1. I am undecided whether I should get the evga gtx 580 3gb or the msi lighting extreme. I will eventually get another to do nvidia surround. What I like about the evga gtx 580 is that it exhausts mostly from the back, but its louder and warmer than the XE. The thing that I like about the XE is that it has a better cooler but it exhausts air back into the case. I also plan on adding a sound card and tv tuner later on so one of those cards will end up covering one of the fans on the XE. I dont think that the evga 580 will have that same issue because it's only fan is on the far end of the card anyways. So I am quite undecided. Btw I am gonna have the windowed side panel so there will be no 200mm side fan but I will have 2 coolermasters up top, the 120 in the rear, the 140 in the front and the two 120's on the side. I will also take off the small hdd bay and put another fan pointing up there. I would prefer to get the XE but I am afraid it will cause too much heat. Plus the heat it exhausts will probably go through my h100 up which is gonna be cooling a 3030k.

Anyways here's my planned specs:

Motherboard: x79 UD7
Case: White nzxt phantom
Ram: 16GB of DDR3 ram (still choosing a brand)
CPU: 3930k
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100
Power Supply: Corsair 1200AX
GPU: 580 (either msi or evga and eventually sli)
Monitor: Asus 24 inch monitor, eventually adding 2 more for nvidia surround
SSD: 120 GB Corsair Force Series GT
HDD: 2 TB seagate
Sound Card: HT Omega Claro Plus
Tuner: Ceton InfiniTV 4 Quad-tuner Card

I have 2 evga gtx 580's in SLI

they are the versions that come overclocked out of the box. when gaming they sound like hair dryers but wow the gaming performance is incredible.

I used them (on air) for about a month until I finished acquiring all of the H2O parts and got my rig's H2O setup finished(now they are H2O cooled).

I have been using evga video cards for 10 years and they have great support. ( you can call them ) and the cards are stable.

I have the 23 inch asus 3d monitor that comes with the nvidia kit. it is great but I honestly do not use the glasses that much.

What game do you play most of the time that you are planning nvidia 3d vision surround for?

I wish they had the same styled drive cage for the full size Phantom. I almost want to build a stay at home rig and use on of these lol.

they really thought it well at NZXT. And what is the space at the back it seems bigger then the full tower. plus it really cool thought about the vga cooler. i know you can mod something but its better to be already done for you

I think when most people on here speak of surround they mean triple monitors, not 3d.

That Phantom mid tower got me thinking; is there any way to pull out the USB connectors on the original Phantom and replace them with USB3?
