Problem is that the green model comes with blue fans and blue power LEDs. It'd be such a pain to change all these to make your case look decent. Plus my setup is completely black, the green would throw in a unmatching wildness tongue.gif

I always thought that the green one was very hard to find, but it seems to be the other way around here.. all hardware stores seem to have plenty of greens but no blacks frown.gif I'll just wait, my rig will be no good until the 7970 comes out anyways. thumb.gif

I have just aquired a Phantom 410 in white, pretty happy with it so far!

There are only a few little things that are bothering me:

  • The rubber grommets come off way too easily
  • The fan controller makes a weird noise on the 2nd setting
  • There is a faint "burnt electronic" smell coming from the top of the case, I'm not sure if this is the fan controller or anything else up there, my componants are all fine and running cooly.


I'll post some pictures up later, the company I ordered my sleeved extensions from accidentally sent me a red 8pin pci-e instead of an orange 6pin pci-e so I'm currently waiting on them to get back to me on that.

Things to buy.
Blue cable sleeving
Sparkly Blue paint ( for interior)
Heat Shrink tubing
Fiber glass Resin
3' tubing (I can salvage some of what I have)
New piece of Lexan
Some sort of trim for around window
More zip Ties (Blue of course)
Screws and miscelaneous parts
Sorry spelling sucks.
LawnDart

I wouldn't get any Heat Shrink Tubing and just buy regular tubing.

thanks mate, its just for storage purpose so green will suffice and it has more storage capacity... black is just too noisy...
