R4VANG3Rs Rig - Project Phantom part II
 
Hey guys!

I've had this case for a while and have done some slight modding on it, I'm kind of new to the whole modding thing though so you have probably seen this a hundred times before, but I still wanted to share my rig with you guys.
The case is obviously a NZXT Phantom (first gen),
and this is what it used to look like some time ago.

So I already did some paint work there, although not everything has been done properly, but that's because I hadn't ever spray-painted anything before.

So.

In the meanwhile I've done quite a bit of modding on the case, didn't photograph everything though.. :(

First of all I wanted to upgrade my rig hardware-wise.

Here's the new specs:
i7 3770K
MSI Z77 MPower
2x4GB Corsair Dominator GT 1866MHz
XFX HD Radeon 7970
Antec H2O 620
Cooler-Master Silent Pro M1000
Samsung 830 Series SSD 128GB
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200RPM HDD

Already making a lot of mess in my room..

I will be doing a full water loop later on when I have the money for it.

So with that in the back of my mind I wanted to remove the huge HDD Cage inside my Phantom as it's a very nice place to put a 240 rad.

But first, cleaning out my case! And we have a very nice tool for that!

Everything clean!

With front fan mounted.

Most of the stuff is in, starting to look good.

Now with the PSU Guard my Father-in-law made me, it's made of some kind of steel (can't remember the name)

Well that's it for now, I will Watercool it sometime soon when I get the funds together and will start OCing it then aswell!
So when that time has come I will update this post!

Cheers!

If you guys are talking about the big red side mesh, then that's a goner!
I made a window there :)
But it was the first time I ever spray painted anything so that's why it's so bad :lol:

And thanks I spent a lot of time on the cable management
