    Ahh, i like those cases a lot! I'd preferably go with the white, but it's getting very common anymore. The black look's great also though!

    Dream system White Phantom + 850W HALE90 PSU + 2x 1gb 6970 + AMD Hexacore/Octocore Bulldozer CPU + 4/6GB Corsair DDR3 RAM + Asus Xonar DX + 60GB SSD + 2x1TB Western Digital Caviar Black

    then maybe do a white WC setup

    With some white tubing and that would be sick! Im really looking forward to bulldozer. Im glad i held off on sandy bridge, and honestly i couldn't be happier with my 920 at the moment. Hopefully bulldozer can hurry up, but i would rather have them take there time and get it right and blow sandy bridge away, but then they need to remember that IVY bridge is coming real soon after there release. So they need to release it accordingly so that it beats sandy bridge, so more users switch to amd and then they can make some cash on that, then once IVY is released is where amd shines with there budget stuff.

    But yeah, once bulldozer comes out and i see some benchies, i'll hopefully build a new system with a phantom, or possibly NZXT will have something else out by then? :cool:

    Nzxt has been doing pretty good with there latest stuff. I've been liking alot of it. I find it funny that one day I bought 40 white LEDs to daisy chain then two days later the sleeved led cable kit popped up on here. There taking my ideas lol. I think they put mic's in there stuff and is listening to me lol.

    It sucks this lousy economy put my build on hold. Then new and better stuff is coming. I'm tempted to let a few things go to switch to newer. I was really looking forward to the build I had going. Wanted to see what I can get out of it. This was my first attempt at a serious build after all the reading and practicing mods I've been doing. O well I guess. Hopefully I get another shot at it. I enjoy doing it and hope to make it a paying hobby.

    New EVO has been transformed with nzxt sleeved kit and Dual loop.. with a new set up of WC. I love the water passing through on the xspc reservoir bay... my cpu temp goes down with 12c idle.. my 5770 sapphire was 27c idle mode..

    Thanks very much for the great pics. I know nothing about water cooling except what I have seen and read on forums like this.

    I am very intrigued by the bay resevoir/pump combo. Might be perfect for my vulcan if I can find room for radiator(s).

    It looks like you have a 2nd loop and hoses going to something in the lower front of the case. Perhaps another radiator?

    I would appreciate more details on your configuration so that I can convince myself to take the plunge into a real water setup. :D

    hi there thanks for the comment. You're right the hoses in the lower front is going to 120mm rad then straight up to combo reservoir on the drive bay in front of the case then from reservoir straight to my gpu block then SB chipset. that's the 1st loop.. 2nd loop from ek combo reservoir hoses going to 120mm rad at rear then NB chipset straight up to CPU block then passing through to 2x120mm rad on top then straight down to PUMP..

    I recently converted to the NZXT brand (coming from a modded white HAF 922). I now own an NZXT Phantom and boy I am impressed. For the past 2 days, I am amazed how it is easy to cable manage due to the conveniently placed routing holes. The built-in fan controller is a blessing. Now I am no longer bound by any allegiance to the Cooler Master clubhouse....:rockout: (just kidding: I'm still gonna mod my other case to look even better). Here are the pics of my recent acquisition: Hope you all like it.:)

    PS.
    If the look grows old on me, I'm going to mod it maybe in about a week...hehe
    Also, can I be a member of this case club:respect:

    :wtf:

    I watch this thread too dude.












    Lucky I like NZXT cases and T77's club quite a bit, so I don't really care. It's not like it's some huge deal anyways. :p
