Nice build. I really like the color scheme. What is the primary function for this computer? Gaming? Graphics? It looks like you have the old style fans on your cooler. Keep an eye out we might be having a contest to win the new model.

Primary function is to play BF3 and later on BF4. :)
Yeah, I think it's the old one aswell, I will. ;)

The blue and white theme looks really nice :)
Nice PSU cover too. Did you do your own sleeving?

Thank you!
Yes, i ordered unsleeved extenders beacuse I knew that I was going to change PSU. So I sleeved them with paracord. ( Used with parachutes ) :)

brian@phanteks
04-30-2013, 10:31 AM
Yeah those blue sleeves look great. I would like to do something like that but dont have the patience (or skills). But what I wonder is why dont these gpu manufacturers design the power connectors on the side since they know most of us are trying to hide cables. And why dont PSU manufacturers design more 90 degree stuff. I hate cables all over the place, but since you have a nice big case it looks good.

Well I see your point, that's actually a good idea!

It's just regular spraypaint that you can use for almost everything! :) Just make sure to cover the contacts on the bridge.

Why don't you turn the 3 fans on your CPU cooler 90 degrees so that it shows the Phanteks lettering through your case window?

You could even use a blue sharpie on the lettering to make them stand out and be more readable. Just a suggestion.

Here's a pic of mine for reference. I used a black sharpie on mine.

Because of the cable management. :)

Because of the cable management. :)

What I did was take the extra length of cable from all 3 fans, zip tied all the extra length together, and tucked them behind the CPU cooling towers. The only part of the cable I see through my window is the connectors at the end connecting to the top of my motherboard.

Here's a more close up pic of mine showing my modified right cooling tower, but you can see that even with the side panel off my extra cable length is hidden. Through my case window, can't see it at all back there.

I understand that this is just a personal preference thing too. :cool:
