    Sorry....I didn't intend to sound disrespectful. Always has and always will be CM member at heart ;). I still have my CM 690 advance and especially my white HAF 922. It happens that I was looking for a larger case with more cable management options.

    to T77...

    Thanks for letting me join this growing club of yours. Here are the insides of my "Tron" case. Hope you like it....:D

    Kaiser Kraus. I was kidding, don't worry dude. Your new case looks great by the way.

    How did you mount the H50 in the 5.25 bays like that?
    Kaiser Kraus says thanks.

    Kaiser, your case looks great! How are temps with your h50 as a intake like that? I'd be curious to know how you mounted that in the 5.25" bay as well :)

    Thanks for the praises. :)

    Regarding the mounting of my H50, I used a coolermaster 4in1 device module. I flipped it and put a push-pull fan config on it. Pretty novel by the way....

    Here is a pic of it...

    Regarding the my temps inside the case...(after playing a solid 3 hrs of Battlefield: Bad company 2), here is a log of it.

    Thanks....:) I'm planning to paint that as well. Its a mod that I used in my HAF 922 build but I think it would look better inside the Phantom. Now only the cables need sleeving....hehe

    Well my life in this Club were sadly shortlived as I now have moved on to another rig-upgrade that includes a new case (Fractal Design Define R3 Titanium) to house my compononents...

    I simply couldnt resist the beaty&performance of the case & my Apollo has served me well during its rather long lifespan of roughly half a decade but its starting to show its age in form of scratches on the side window + other various defects.

    So I guess Ill say see ya laterz instead of goodbye.

    & sends a special greeting to t77 for his warmingly welcome when I joined teh club, BIG thx m8

    hi guys, i have a NZXT Hades, have no pics yet, but will stick some up soon.
    so join me up.

    nice case, but i have a couple of little gripes.

    with the side fan on, the HSF clearance is only about 130mm.
    i needed cpu cooling more than case cooling, so i removed the side fan, and stuck a Tuniq Tower 120 in there instead.
    my cpu temps dropped nearly 20.C from the intel stock cooler :)

    also only comes with 1 top exhaust fan, this didn't really bother me as i had a spare 120mm fan laying around.
    but even with the stock cooler fitted, a 25mm fan would not fit in the rear top exhaust, :(
    as you can see in the pic below i stuck it below the gpu

    paint has that orange peel texture to it, but i still think the case is good ;)

    edit. this is an old pic, so i need to take some new ones

    hi t77snapshot
    if you look, it was an m-atx board, so the fan is below it.
    the pci slot covers are a wire mesh type.
    i just got a couple of small wood screws and screwed through the mesh into the fan casing.
    it sounds dodgy, but it was easy to do,

    since then though i got a dfi board that is atx, so i have had to take it out :ohwell:
    and i noticed my gpu temps have crept up since :(
    i will try and do some new pics soon.

    Hey all I just got a NZXT TEMPEST EVO,was looking for a cheap second case for one of my Folding rigs,but wow I liked it so much I put my main rig into it..It is so much quieted than my HAF 922..The cable management will take some work to get it where I want it but i like the quality feel to it and the filtering on the fans and all black inside..My ASROCK P67 EXTREME 6 looks cool in it,grey over black..
    Anyways just wanted to say hey...Cheers:toast:
