Phantom Noir by 23RO_UK

Project Log: Here
Nzxt's Phantom is one the best cases we've seen in recent years and thankfully it's proved to be fairly modding friendly too. 23RO_UK started off with a black example in his project log, which began a couple of months ago in our forum.

He started by stripping the case down to its frame in order to make more accessible and modding-friendly. The first additions were two Phobya G-Changer single 120mm-fan radiators in a sandwich configuration located in the front of the case.

Thanks to top as well as side threaded ports for barbs, the radiators allowed 23RO_UK to hook them up in series with a minimum of fuss while looking pretty cool too.

The outlet of one of the radiators heads off to the combined reservoir and pump, while 23RO_UK has installed some tube clamps to make the tubing look a little neater than usual.

Combined with some great cable tidying, it's turning into a unique, super-clean and very neat case mod which is sure to inspire a few Phantom owners out there.

There's a lot more to see in 23RO_UKs project log. Head to the forum if you want to vote for this project.
