I picked up a beautiful NZXT Phantom. And enjoying every bit of it. I've been slowing working on her. This is my 1st Intel build but I have tons of AMD builds under my belt. I hope everyone enjoying this as much as I did putting her together.

Parts list subject to change as technology changes.
Plan build parts list:
Mobo: MSI P55-GD80 - Have
CPU: Intel I7 870 - Have
Memory: G. Skill Tridents 2000MHz 2x2GB - Have
GPU: eVGA GTX 275 - Have
HDD: Seagate 1.5TBx1 - Have
SSD: Mushkin Callisto 60GB Deluxe / OCZ Vertex Turbo 30GB - Have
PSU: Corsair HX1000 - Have

Water Cooling:
Pump: Corsair D4 Pump - Have
CPU Block: XSPC Raystorm black acetal 1156 - Have
Reservoir: EK 250 basic- Have
Radiator: HWlabs Black Ice GT Stealth 240 Blue - Have
Fittings: Bitspower Black compression's/angled and extensions - Collecting
Tubing: 1/2IN x 3/4OD white - Have

Air Cooling:
Cpu Cooler: Thermaltake Frio OCK - Have

If there's any changes I should make to parts I don't have. Feel free to voice your opinions Or ideas on loop setup. I'm open to all feed back and suggestions.



Here's a pick of the Mobo I'll be working with.


I picked up 2 200mm NZXT fans to put up top and replaced the included one with case that had blue led's. I modded the fans to have white led's. Sleeved all wires and there controlled by a bulgin push button switch that I modded into a drive bay cover.


I just got in today the NZXT LED sleeved cable kit - White 2m. These are pretty awesome. They have a push button for on/off and a 3 level brightness switch. They sure get the job done. JFYI the 2m is just long enough to around the side where the side panel is and overlap by like an inch.



I got a HW labs black ice 240 blue rad. It goes with the mobo beautifully. I have Bitspower black compression fittings 1/2IN x 3/4OD on the way. I have white tubing waiting to be sized and cut.


I picked up a bulgin white led push button switch and a Lian Li vented drive bay cover. I was soo skeptical if that cover would fit. It controls the top fans led's.


For just right now. I think its coming along very nicely. I definitely will keep this updated as parts come in. If anyone is interested in the fan light mod. I can easily put up a log on that. Don't hesitate to give me your feed back on this.

I'm thinkin of changing the stripe down the front and top to white. And possibly cutting out the fan frame off the side panel to make a window. I'll leave the mesh on to tint it down a little Cause thats where I'm thinking of mounting the res so its easily visible.

Back to life updates:

*06/17/2012*
I just picked up some Crylon white gloss paint and painted a lil accent to the case.




*06/19/2012*
Heres a shot of the cpu cooler that'll be in there. Its not fully mounted. Just doing a test fit to make sure I have clearance for it around the boards heatpipe.


------------------------

Here's some cable management in action














-----------------------


Heres another shot from the front with the door open and all lights on.



Heres a pic of straight down from the top.



---------------------


Here's a shot through the side panel where a fan could be.

I was hoping they'd make uv ones. If that ever comes out I just may get those also. Kinda mix it up a bit for the mood.

Alright everyone. Before I order the sleeving. I need to figure out what theme I'm gonna go with. I can't decide. With the case being black, fans white and the mobo black and blue. i came up with a few ideas. I was first thinking on the bottom one ( black & white) but came up with tying all three colors into one. This is the 24pin power. I'll figure out the pci-e to go along with them. I'm open to any suggestions on this.

Hmmmm, The think the three colors might look good, got mixed feelings. Not sure if keeping it simpler here might look better. At least all three colors match the color scheme of the build.

I would use blue and black alternating for every other pin. That way it will mimic the heatsink pattern.

I like the black, blue and white.

The LED picture reminds me of a few NASA launch pad shots I've seen, you know, with the shuttle or rocket already to go and lit up.

Added lil update. I just did that switch and added on here. Looks good I think. lol.

On that 24pin mod, Should I go every other wire blue or go with the bottom diagram but instad of white, use blue? Cause I think it'll look better that way JMO.

I finally got around to getting my g.skill tridents 2000mhz. Sweet

I'm still undecided on what psu to stick in here. I have one 460 and will be adding another. I'm trying to keep options open for upgrades (5xx gpu). Also if and when I upgrade whole system to newer cpu's. The psu is just one less thing to upgrade then. I'm thinkin on the Corsair AX1200 but not sure if I need all that power. I just like that its fully modular and floppy cable is separate.

~~Anyone with ideas on which psu I should go with?

Haven't fully decided on how to color code 24atx cable either. I was wanting to go a white theme but mobo has blue so now it ended up black/white/blue themed. lol

I know this is old but I'm bringing it back to life finally lol.

Several things came up and I had to put this build on hold. Didn't think it would take this long. I moved twice since I started this build and almost all of her sat in storage for some time. I recently just got her back. I've been working on gathering the last of my parts. I have the last one coming soon. You know who you are, if you see this 'Thanks a ton man'. I won't be able to run her under water just yet as 1 or 2 parts where left in storage. I didn't pick them up. Mother in law brung them down for me and she didn't grab which totes I said to get lol. So this is going to be under air for a bit (Tt Frio OCK). I'll add pics of the cooler later and more pics as I put it all together. Last piece should be here in a wk or 2 hopefully.

I still haven't decided on the cable sleeving for the 24pin atx. I got one of those nzxt 24pin sleeved cables for now and half the work is already donr lol. Just have to switch out the lines I want another color.

I made a few adjusts to the parts list also. Got an ssd and changed psu from a diff rig.

posted a pic of the cpu cooler. Did a test fit on it and it works. Sweet. I also drilled a small whole in the front bay drive where my button switch is. I mounted my pump speed controller there for When I get to switch to water.

cpu on its way one of these days lol. Got an i7 870 coming for her. And a 60G ssd for os drive. Soo can't wait to get her to life. She's gonna crunch hard for team TPU lol.

I'll keep everyone posted on this. Is anyone following this anymore? i wonder

Soon the gpu will be updated in a few months when I get the $$ for it. Got an Asus DC II 570 on stand by for her. Shes gonna fold and game awesomely.

I might even throw that into the loop eventually. Will see how she does on air for a while.

I'll get some more shots tonight and add them in. Any specific angle or anything?

I'm really debating this one: (option1) cut the metal out to just leaving the mesh in place to open the view more. That way it'll still get air where the gpu's are. (option2) buy the panel that has the window in it.

Which option should I go with?

Here's a shot through the side panel where a fan could be.


Anyone want any better shots of anything let me know.
