Hey guys. Longtime lurker. First time Phantom owner. Mine arrives on Monday. Very psyched. I am hoping I get one of the USB 3.0 on top models.

I went with the white because I've always wanted a white case and I'm a sucker for blue+white.

Hiya guys. I am in the process of selling my Sig rig to a buddy of mine.And am building a new Phantom of course. But i am so stuck on certain things.The sale to my friend doesn't include any of the Liquid cooling nor my Ram,i am just throwing an H100 in it for him and a set of Corsair Vengeance.
Now the trouble i am having is:
i decided no doubt on the new Fatal1ty Pro Z68 gen 3 board (It was between the Asrock Extreme7 and the Fatal1ty but the Fatal1ty is a little more future proof and a little bit better .Both great top end boards though)

I really want the i7-2700K but its sold out on newegg at the moment that had it bundled with the Fatal1ty.

Gpu/Gpu's is the part im stuck on I already have 1 6970 2 gig Powercolor Waterblock thats not going with the sale because he will be running the h100.
I sold my other buddy my second 6970 before i Liquid cooled it so he agreed i could just order him a new 6970 and have matching 6970s back again and just have to buy 1 more EK waterblock and ram plate.So this would still cost me the full price of 2 6970s and 1 waterblock to do. Or i can buy a hd 6990 and a waterblock for close to the same price.Or maby something totally different. Any ideas?Waiting on next gen cards is out of the question i will just sell my card or cards then and upgrade.

Another big problem is i wanted to upgrade my ram to 8 Gig or at least run similar Corsair Dominators 2133 i own the waterblock already and love the ram! I cant seem to find a matching set of mine for sale. So i might let them go with the sale if i can find a set of 2133 Dominators 8 gig or maby even 16 gig.But i want it to run the same my ram benchmarks better @ 2133 looser timings vs 1600 at tighter timings i tried 1800 ect still was fastest at 2133.I do realize when i jump up to 8 or 16 gigs and running cpu @ 5ghz it may not achieve the 2133 but i should be able to get some tighter timings running them lower anyway so either way they are really nice ram and i can still use my waterblock.I just cant find them.

Besides that everything else is pretty much figured out. 2 60gig OCZ Vertex 3 SSD's in raid 0 and a Wd Black 2 tb for storage

Basically doing this new build to get out of the P67 board and the sata 2 single ssd and want a little more oomph in my graphics again and i have a chance to get basically what i Paid back because of all the Custom work done.Sucks the Psu has to go .that was so much work sleeving and re pinning all the wires

I need to start all this really soon and would love some comments.I will of coarse be modding the case and posting it here.

You cant get corsair 8gb 2133 ram moduals, they never made that model.
They only made corsair 4gb 2133 and 8gb 2000 moduals, and they no longer make those parts anymore. It was like a limited edition thing.
post #6795 of 15204
Im preety sure gskill now make a 2133 set,

other then that you will have to scour the internets for a 2000 set. Will be hard to find an unused one though

Finally I`m proud to be Phantom owner as well. So glad I chose this over HAF. Looks are are just brilliant and what a cable managment. This my first proper build from a scratch when there was no one to help me and I think I`m done pretty good.

Give the top panel a whack and that gap will disappear. Rig looks pretty sweet.
