Can I join? I plan on taking some better photos next week when I'm not so busy and I still need to get one more set of NZXT sleeved 6pin pci-e cables for the second gpu and a few other odds and ends.

Have you got your rear fan as an intake rather than an exhaust, did you see any improved temps?

At first I was happy about my Phantom.
Now, I'm not that happy anymore, even more, a bit disappointed about the quality.

First, the color difference is VERY large between the metal and plastic. The metal side panels are vanilla like while the plastic is white.
Also, the paint releases like it is nothing.
The pictures below show that. These are from normal use, from opening my case a couple of times...

The last picture is without a flash, so you can see the color better.

Oh, and it gets scratches really fast, so frown.gif

that's the original paint? doing that? If is is the edge of your door bent or something? and yes i did notice the 2 different paints or clear coats used. But painting plastic is a different process the painting metal so its kinda understandable. I have the problem of my door marking up the same place but that do to the thick layers of paint and clear coat i used.Although its very minor.Basically most painted Pc cases will do that.They cant dump a 300 dollar paint job on a 130 dollar case of course. If its peeling for no reason then you might have a bad case but if its scratching do to the door hitting or rubbing on it you need to tweak the door a bit to fix it.

Yes, this is in fact the original paint.
Well, the first picture is of the place where I put the side panel on first when I'm closing it. The rest though, are just spots of closing.
And I do understand te fact that it can have 2 different colors, but having a panel more vanilla like makes me really sad that I paid €130 for this case.
Also, about the scratching, I'll give an example. My bed is placed next to my PC case & desk. I have a box of tissues between my bed and case. The box can scratch the case and remove paint, it's really fragile.
I had one replacement panel because one of the panels was really vanilla colored and it was scratched instantly because my girlfriend layed down her cell phone on it...

Hi again guys, I have a question
I´m currently using all nzxt fans for all the fan areas in the case.
And using the silver arrow fans on my cpu cooler.

Think I would a more silent pc and colder pc if I swapped it all out with scythe kaze/slipstream/ultrakaze/slim slipstream/kama fans ? and which of them should I choose ?

Have a question. I am planning on getting the Nzxt Phantom ( Red ) . Where in the motherboard tray would the E-ATX motherboard go ? I was looking at the pdf version of the manual and it doesn't say which holes go for E-ATX . Also does the EK waterblocks 360 Radiators fit on the top ?
