[Build Log] Project Mini Me - M-ATX Phantom, 3820, RIVG, 7970, watercooled

The Plan:

Make a Phantom go from this:


To this:


And stuff a whole lot of awesome in it.




A couple things to note about this build:
-The above pic was done in MS Paint as a reference point. The plan is to shorten the height by 6" and the length by 3.5".
The final will have 2 5.25" bays and 2 3.5" bays
-The power supply will mount sideways in the bottom-front, like in silverstone cases.
-The final will not have a 200mm fan in the top, though it will likely have one in the bottom, similar to my last build.
-Door design is still being decided.

New Case!!! This is my third Phantom Full Tower!


I got it in white/red for the red LEDs, since I'll be sandblasting and painting it anyway.



I believe this is revision 3.0 for the Phantom, since it has updated drive bay locks. I believe 2.0 only had a revised fan controller PCB and an added USB 3.0 port, since those were the changes my second Phantom had in camparison to the first.


It even has a new hardware box. Sorry for the bad focus on the first pic.





Here's a pic of my old, jealous Phantom in pieces.


Some of the hardware for this build (before I had to send the mobo back for replacement)


A pic of the capacitor I replaced on my Diamond 7970 (front left)


And a few pics of my Mad Max PSU. Those extensions won't be used in this build; I'm going to sleeve the PSU as well as build new sleeved extensions. The hole on one side is where the wires used to come out when this was in my previous build. For now I just flipped the metal shroud.




And here's what the Paracord colors look like.

I like the colour/look of the blue and red paracord, the other is not to my tastes.
