mostly because if lets say i bought the board today and tomorrow they add 4 more USB ports i would feel cheated as in making the new one have 4 USB ports I wouldn't mind that.

phantom just went haywire! the fan got caught on the dust filter and the blade snapped off! good thing NZXT is sending me a new side panel! the fan was getting caught on the filter and I called about it. Now that the blade is off it sounds like an engine idling, and when you turn if on high like an engine reving.... side panel should be here tomorrow

Well 100 pages down and 618 to go lol. There was a lot of good advice back there except i haven seen anything on the corsair H100 yet but im sure it will come up eventually, and yes i broke down and bought a phantom last week. I havent put it together yet because i am the type of person who has issues deciding on what to buy I have to look at it and sleep on it and look some more and eventually decide on it but sometimes i want to kick myself in the arse for being that way but what can you do... I takes Meh time! lol Anyway what I have so far is obviously the case its black, an I7 2600k, and to cool it a corsair H100, an AsRock Z68 Extreme7 gen3, a Gigabyte Nvidia Geforce Gtx 560TI, 8gb(2x4gb) corsair vengeance,1 SSD 128gb and 2x2tb hds, __________ (Insert Psu here lol havent decided yet any suggestions over clocking and sli will be comming soon) and some other odds and ends i havent gotten yet... Like i said I takes meh time lol. As you can see I am new to overclock.net and all the help/advice i can get always appreciated and probably be blowing this place up with questions once i get started. Its not my first build but will be my first rig for overclocking and running sli, I will also be using the ssd for my primary drive and redirecting the users folders and anything else that will eat up my precious ssd space i want to keep it reasonably predictable and as for the 2 HDs i will be striping them and eventually end up with two more so i can mirror them too.biggrin.gif

Anyone know of any good little tips to cover up the bottom conpartment so i can hide my PSU wires? I have removed the smaller HD tray to allow a little more room.

Also has anyone used one of NZXT's PSU's before? Just curious to know what they are like as im really liking the look of the white one to match my case. I have an Antec true blue 750w at the mo and its served me very well indeed but i have an upgrade itch biggrin.gif

I used carbon vinyl sheeting works a treat did all the walls in it too, to cover all the holes...

Then I realised I no longer liked my H50 mod so yesterday stuck a Rasa 240 in and made a door to fill the gap at back of hdd cage as I didn't like that either, and covered that with carbon vinyl, like this stuff so much I may do the car with it! biggrin.gif

You can just put some stiff white plastic behind as I did first, ssd mounted up there looks quite neat

Because I don't have a USB 3.0 board, I'm stuck with just one front USB port. Where as the 410 atleast has 2 for each...doh.gif

MOst people don't want a bunch of wires hanging out of the top of their case anyways. I only use those for quick these like transferring to my phone.

Get a hub on your desk its better.
