I was talking about fans and as long as you do a primer coat it takes no paint at all i am in the middle of 2 case paint session as we type. but if you mean pulling everything apart your right lots of little things to remove and put back when done. but i was talking about the fans he he you can paint them real easy with a spray bomb. in fact the cans i am using right now have painted 2 other cases it all how you use them ( i got real good at this been painting cases for too many years now ha ha) it's fun really

If I were in the market, I'd totally be nabbing a Phantom. The deep, candy apple red is just gorgeous.

The red isn't quite that dark, the candy red pics appear to be 3D renders and not an actual case. The red is more along the lines of what you'll see on current AMD cards with reference cooling. 2 more days...

Just note Dr, as I found out at least before I bought the case (but not before I purchased the fans) the Phantom doesn't use standard 200mm fans. They are NZXT Special with 192mm off-sets. So only NZXT Fans will work for it.

I don't know if that will change your mind, but to be honest it changed mine on the whole build.

Already ordered a red one. I was fully aware of the 200mm fan, I'll probably just machine some adapters to put 120's in if required.

Still got some stuff to "change"

Peeves:
Only exactly enough stand-off's for an ATX board (don't drop em)
No extra push pin dealies so you can move the door filter up to block the hole where the fan normally is.
Threads seemed to have paint in them
