Welcome to the Nzxt case club! :toast:

Way to make full use out of the Phantom's. Your rig looks clean bro.. I like the the way you mounted the ssd and that window design looks sweet. Although I have to say I haven't seen a ram w'cooler in a long time lol! What are your load temps like on the cpu/gpu?

Cpu under full load Prime95 56c @4.8 ghz and around 61c max @ 5ghz Full load.
Gpu: i never seen it go ever 41c even playing Bf3 Ultra settings.It runs very cool i was happy with the end results. I am still adding 2 more Fans to the bottom rad for push/pull but i am just to lazy to drain the system to rip the Rad out.

Wow those are some good temps you have there! I wouldn't even bother with the 2 fans, your cooling setup seems to be perform well.

I have had it up to 71c using Intel Burntest on max settings running 5.1ghz @ 1.5 volts so the other 2 fans will help that a little.Also i am working on painting my Phantom maby a design on the front with black flames heading down the sides.This will all be done with a Automotive Basecoat/Clearcoat System using Adhesion Promoter also to make sure it stays.I will be shooting the whole thing with a full size HVLP Gun and a detail gun.I was also thinking of painting the white over also with a bright white and adding real pearl to the paint,also adding pearl to the black.I am Just struggling with the design at the moment i have done many drawings so far and not good enough.

Here is an old laptop i just practiced on to see how the paint system works on plastic and the results are almost smooth as glass.I will be still wetsanding and buffing the clear out to look like glass smooth.anyway here it is,remember this was just practice.

Before:



After: (sanded and applied Adhesion promoter ,Primed,applied Metallic blue basecoat,Added a midcoat metallic clear,and then 5 or so coats of gloss clearcoat.will wetsand and polish in a couple weaks of paint fully curing:





No idea why the white seems yeloish in the pictures,Its pure white with metallic flakes in it.Also the photos make it look bumpy,its not it is the metellic flakes in the photo that make it seem that way.

Hope you guys like it.

Very nice. I believe it's white. :D

It looks yellowish due to white balance. Some cameras have adjustment for that, some don't.

Or use better ambient lighting. It's mainly a problem in dark rooms.
