Nice build!

I was curious how your temperatures are (cpu & gpu), and also noise levels? (are they acceptable to you?)

I had been eyeing this case myself, and looking to pull the trigger the next few days to pick a pair up.

I am actually quite fond of that case - probably my favorite NZXT case - by far. And you did a nice job with it :)

Where did you find a Zalman MAX in stock here with the BLUE LED?
I've been eying that cooler for sometime now.

Nice job on the Phantom, its going to be my next case when I get a chance.
I really like its design.

I got it from newegg.ca it is a great cooler! If you check out the review it is rated VERY close the the noctua D14 (i know some people dont believe it, becuase 5 trusted review says so) It keeps my i7 970 at 4.0 under 56 degrees during 2 hours + prime.

I would believe it, not many people put stock in the design, but from my experience with the CNPS9900's , its been golden.

I agree with SoulTribunal.

The CNPS9XXX cpu coolers are great!
Xhrrcollector you're really really lucky to get the 9900 in Blue!!

I had been looking everywhere back in November for one (guess it was not officially released yet), finally settled on getting the red version on boxing day. (Thanks Memory Express!)

The Mrs forbid me to shop at Newegg, because of a few bungled up ordeals we've had in the past *sigh*
Ah well... once again congrats on the new build, it looks awesome! :D
I pulled the trigger and up and bought the Storm Trooper white version myself.

edit:
white = Storm Trooper
red = Emperor's royal guards?
black = Darth Vader?

Normally not big on cases with angles like that, but this one pulls it off well. Quite nice.

Woah! Are those coolers for real? Only three heatpipes and they are almost on par with NH-D14s? 0_0
