Water-cooling components:

Extra components:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5mm Black&White acrylic sheets
3mm Black&White acrylic sheets
Led Strips for the exterior Lighting
White vinyl


The 1st thing that I did was to wrap the case in white vinyl, since you could not get it in white locally. Photos.jpg Photos-4.jpg Photos-5.jpg

Then I went ahead and created new mounting holes for the radiators.
I have attached a 360 rad at the top and a 280 rad in front.
The 280 is used in a push configuration with it in-taking cold air and the 360 rad also in a pull configuration as the exhaust radiator.
The reason for the new mounting holes were due to the 360 rad hitting the top of the DIMM slots as well as to create extra space between the 360 rand and 280.

Finally the exterior was made using 5mm and 3mm thick clear and black perspex. The 5mm clear perspex was laser cut to my specific design and I had made a frame from one clear 5mm and a top from another 5mm clear perspex. I then glued the 2 pieces onto each other to give me a 5mm clearance between the top of the case's top panel and the bottom of the top perspex panel. I made use of this space to add rgb led strips to it, which I then connected to the internal rgb led hub of the phanteks case. I also wrapped the clear perspex in white vinyl to give me a more diffused light and a very cool look.

After that was done, I used a template and glued all of the black perspex hexagon shapes onto the vinyl to give me an even better and unique look.

To round it all off, I have created a youtube channel where all my future case builds will be featured, just like this log.


Hope you guys have enjoyed my build log.
Please feel free to comment and if you want to go give my youtube channel a like for all future builds.

If you want me to do a custom design for you.... Well then I hope this log is a great way to prove myself :p
