i was looking to build something for running modern games with room to adapt and a cool black and red look. got almost all my parts. currently waiting for the other pack of ram, but currently running very well. loved working with the phantom 530. lots of space and the built in fan hub allowed me to pursue my lust for case fans, plus adjust the speed so i can sleep if its still on.
works as i expected. easy to pop in and go. not running insanely hot, but have yet to truly test it.
great looking. quiet. keeps cpu at 27-28 degrees at idle. nice included fan hub. easy tool less application. overall very satisfied EDIT: after like 8 monthsit decided to completely fail and pour juice all over my graphics card. card still seems to work but i haven't been able to test that since i cant run the thing. would not buy again. looking into an nzxt kraken. any better cooler suggestions that match the red and black theme? EDIT EDIT: got a thermaltake water 3.0 riing rgb 240. works well. leak did kill my graphics card. shorted about a week after the leak.
looks absolutely amazing in person. no real way to describe it. strong mount points and lots of extra features.
its ram. fast ram, but really just ram. LEDs look really cool though, and pulse nicely. goes well with coolers pulse and putting the graphics cards LEDs on pulsing.
super cool looking in person. wish it wasn't hidden in this computer case, but absoluteley fast boot speeds and easy installation.
amazingly fast. easy to install and beautiful. runs everything i wanted easily (which is just really war thunder on movie graphics and 4k) and doesnt get hot at all. exited to attempt overclocking, but i have lots of research to do before that happens.
really loved this case. tons of room to work in, which made it really easy to install my 240mm radiator once i oriented it the right way, and the fan controller and hub is a must have for me, so really satisfied me. the tool less screws where pretty hard to take out the first time around, but had no other issues with them. the SSD bracket was also very useful and the tool less hard drive install trays where no problem. only minor annoyance is that the front power indicator LED is white, but i'm gonna change that.
modular cables had lots of unnecessary plugs for me, but other than the extra bulk, it was easy to install, decently small and quiet, and had nice modular options.
popped in. works. nothing crazy. looks weird in my case. pretty sure i have to adjust it. EDIT: did adjust it. perfect now. just a disc drive
product activation key was stupidly hard to find and small. check your stickers if you get the disc.
Wireless Network Adapter
dont think its actually working yet, as the motherboard has built in wifi, but im gonna play with it a bit. might change this review.
not amazing. red LEDs kinda sucked. just there to move air though and they do a good job of that, so no huge complaints.
rings look good. push some air. decently quiet, but come with special quiet cables that reduce rpm and noise if you want it. made quieter by turning cases fan controller down for me.
only bought it for the keyboard. it was the only one in stock. keys arent terrible and the red LED isn't bad. EDIT: keys suck. just dont unless you cant do anything else.
great mouse. program to use LED lights and adjust DPI was easy to get and use. very comfortable in my hand.
bought it in red. really light and pretty comfy. nice mic and adjustability. would like it if the plugs where actually labeled for which was mic and which was headphones, but easily found out myself.
