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!


Lets start drilling.



And out you go.


Small HDD Cage in.




With front fan mounted.


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



RAMs in, damn I love how they look.



So.. now some cable management.
Before:

After:


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!
R4VANG3R.

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

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