Hmm, I'd go with the red... it looks damn fine! But then again it would depend on the colour of the other part's of your rig ie: black/red motherboard, gfx, black monitor, keyboard, mouse etc.

Built a new machine in a Vulcan recently. Was going to take some pics but the weather's turned.

Is it possible to get additional fans with the orange LEDs to match the one supplied?

To match the ONE supplied... wouldn't it make sense just to spend a little extra and buy that one extra fan (along with the other new ones you'd be buying) to replace the one stock fan? You'll probably get a quieter fan than the stock anyway's if you buy some new one's.

I've currently got three 120mms in there (the vulcan comes with two, one of which has LEDs), the NZXT fans are quiet and doing the job nicely.

If I can get another one of the LED fans then that's the obvious way to go. If not then I'll need a pair of fans.

I'll trade you your top non-LED fan for my LED fan if you pay shipping both ways. :D

The Phantom is a piece of work isn't it? If I weren't so partial to mATX builds I would have gotten one instead of the Vulcan.

And while I'm at it...

The Vulcan is a pretty decent case, but it's cheap for a reason. Build quality is meh, it's hard to work with (my old P180 Mini wasn't this bad), and cables are wild. I had to file away at the PSU area to mount my PSU, this is an issue that was present in my cousin's NZXT Beta (built a rig for him last week). The way different parts of the case are "stapled" together results in tiny protruding bumps around the case, and one of these were so high that I had to literally file away at it in order to mount my PSU. Same issue for the Beta EVO except it was preventing me from inserting the GPU properly, the protruding bump wouldn't let me screw in the metal bracket all the way against the case rear so it was a tad slanted.

They also could have provided grommets like the Tempest EVO or the Phantom, it would clean things up a whole lot. I wouldn't buy this case again.

I didn't find any of those problems with the vulcan, everything slotted together nicely.

Cables are well hidden as well, if not the sata lead on my psu offering up the power leads upside down it'd be really tidy.

I'll PM you re the fan swap if I can't find one closer.

How in the world do you hide anything in there? Can I see some pictures so I can steal some ideas? It would take a miracle to hide even the 8-Pin EPS 12V cable.

I'm going to pick up some of NZXT's sleeved cable extensions, that'll tidy everything up.

Here's a horrible flash photo. I'm reasonably happy with the cables except for the power to the upper drives.

Yes another nice Vuclan rig:toast: Looks good bro welcome to the club!:)

Were you looking for orange led fans or just orange fans? AC.Ryan has some uv orange fans that perform well or you can go with some Xigmatek orange (white led) fans? I just soldered orange leds into my fans, it's really easy but time consuming.

Emailed about replacement LED lights for the front panel of my NZXT Tempest. Its just sitting there i thought i might as well get it repaired or at least try.

Its not my main case that's the Lancool K-62, just wondering what to do with it actually. I never sold it when i upgraded.

Nice cases enjoying the pictures!

The standard vulcan rop fan ia white with LEDs in the corners of the frame, it has a nice soft orange glow. I'm playing with some edge lit perspex to get a similar effect on both top fans, will post results if it works.

Even if your not keeping the Tempest you can ask NZXT in an email on their site for a replacement or you can buy a replacement which i know is possible as all it is held in by is a screw, t77snapshot told me!
