Description

Cable management was a little difficult getting all the cables routed behind the motherboard and still having the back panel close. Getting solid temps with the H60. Haven't gotten into overclocking it much quite yet as I just set it up 2 days ago and haven't had a need to yet. Plan to set up triple monitors and crossfire after I move and have a bigger desk. Any thoughts?

*Update - Got NZXT's Hue and two more fans. Now that I have the Hue I can have my all red theme and If I feel like switching my lighting I can. I'm liking the white setting, it looks a little blue in the pictures but in person it is perfectly white. I also took out the large drive cage. I had to get a SATA cable extender so that I could place the drives at the bottom and have enough length on the SATA power cable to reach all the way up to the optical drive. I got the cpu overclocked to 4.7GHz stable but usual keep it at 4.3 for better temps and longevity. Also overclocked the GPU to 1.15GHz. Haven't had anything push the GPU yet as I'm still playing on a 1360x768 monitor. I'll be upgrading the monitor in a few weeks. I'll think about possibly crossfiring when I get a second monitor.

**Update - Just got my new monitor. The step up from 1360x768 to 2560x1440 is huge. I can still play most games on the highest settings but I can tell my GPU is starting to struggle at such a high resolution during more intense moments. Turning down anti-aliasing solves that though. I highly recomend the jump to 1440p if you can afford it, though I might recommend you make sure you have a high end GPU first (at least a 7950 or 670).

nice build, but blue lights for a red build?

They came with the case. I will be replacing them with red LEDs

Please ignore all the win7><win8 bull. Just pay attention to the comments that say your build is good!

Like me! Very good build for the price! Nice cable management, and cleverly packed :3

Sweet build!

Looks good! Though IMO you should have gone with IB.

As I understand, the case comes with a 140mm fan already on the top, is that fan LED lit any color?

Awesome build! Sexy looking and has nice cable management.

The case comes stock with a 140mm fan up top that has a blue LED. I striped out the LEDs in the fan and bought another fan, not shown in the pictures, that does not have LEDs. All LEDs in my build are in the NZXT Hue. I now have two 140mm fans on the top and also another 120mm on the reservoir set up in a push pull configuration. That makes a grand total of 6 fans. I will be posting some new pictures when I have my battlestation finalized. I just moved so everything's a mess right now.

Fantastic build, but why buy the Phantom 410 case when the full tower phantom is only about $10 more?

Thanks, I Like the full Phantom but I don't need a bigger case. The 410 already seems big so I can't imagine having a full tower. Besides, a full tower would look a little funny with a micro ATX board.

only thing i am wondering about is the ROG board with a non-k processor, other than that, she is a beauty :D

Even though the 3820 is not a 'k' processor its multiplier is partially unlocked and actually overclocks pretty well.
