My NZXT Phantom V2.0, the Mistress

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Current state:





Day 1:

I tore down my rig and I am re-building it now with some new parts and a few mods.


Parts I have:
EVGA SLI LE x58 Board
Intel i7-950
One 5770 Sapphire reference card
2x Seagate 1TB drives, RAID0
LITEON BluRay drive
Corsair GS800 PSU


Parts I'm waiting on:
Dark Knight air-cooler (Temporary until custom loop)
XFX 5770 reference card (for Xfire)
1x 200mm NZXT fan

I discovered that the placement of the CPU on my board prevents the heat sink access cutout on the Phantom from accessing my heatsink. So, I can wait for the HSF to come in and them assemble, or wait.

So, I'm waiting... what to do!

It's buy a new power supply day! Out with the old OCZ 600 and in with the Corsair GS800! It's so nice, and I can't wait until I can hook it up.




As I was sitting there looking at the case with ideas in my head, I realized how much I wanted to keep this build black & white. The ATI card just didn't look right, so I took off the stickers/decals and custom painted it:






When the other one gets here, I'll paint it to match.

What kind of mods are you planning to do?

I already cut the side triangle out, and right now it's covered with the stock grill. That may become an acrylic window.

I also plan on doing a 360 rad in the top.

Also, replacing all built in LEDs with white ones.
