Corsair gives you 3/16" gap around the plate from the factory for airflow. This modification will be huge improvement for cooling your system. The front plate pulls off without any effort. It's removed for accessing and cleaning the Corsair 900D's three 120mm front cooling fans and filter. You have option to remove the Four plastic mounting pegs, or leave them on throughout the entire modification process. It's your choice! The pegs are fastened on with Phillips head screws. The best tape is 3M Scotch 233+ Green tape 3M Scotch Green 233+ masking tape is used by Automotive Paint Professionals. It's highly conformable to curved surfaces on both metal and plastic. It has good adhesion in a large range of weather conditions. It will peel off without leaving any sticky residue. Most Auto Body Supply Stores should be stocking this tape. It's also readily available online. 3M Scotch *233+ tape has a premium price compared to other tapes, but it performs the best*
Welcome! I am now back with another build to work with. This worklog is originally from TheModZoo but i wanted to share it with you guys aswell for opinions. Original link: http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/1002-phantom-820-mod-big-beast-by-jompenleet/ My previous build was a Phantom 410 by NZXT It was a fun build wich also was very appreciated by alot of you. Wich lead into the oppurtunity of this Phantom 820 mod. At this time i i've been building in NZXT cases because i really dig their futuristic look with lots of internal space to work with. NZXT is also very good with listening to their customers reviews & opinions and i believe that they really try to do their best satisfying all their customers, no matter what sort of components they intend to put in their cases.* That is why the NZXT cases are created compatible with lots of different radiator options etc. I would love to give you some rendered pictures of what my goals is with this project but every time i've tried making something in photoshop it ends up looking like a cartoon bisquit. So you're just going to have to check back every now and then to watch the progress here. Anyway i am thinking of giving this case a red interior to match with a grey paint i will be applying to the outside of the case.* Why is this project called The Big Beast? If you check back every now and then you will see why. All of the work you'll see here on these following pages will be made at my house without any 2000$ tools. I Believe That Minor Changes can have a BIG impact if done right Hope you have a great time beeing a part of my progress with this project.

Case is sponsored byNZXT. Modding materials sponsored by MNPCTech Enjoy! This just arrived from NZXT Corp California. They had a local reseller send it to me though. Bigger in person than i thought it would be. They even attached a box to organize all the case screws for the case. Cred to NZXT (Y) I really missed this when i got the older Phantom 410 case. Backside Rear side. Sorry you have to tilt your head* Lets dig in fellow monkeys! As you can see, this case will give me plenty of room to work with. Whatever i intend to do with this case. 200mm fan in the side 200mm fan in the front 200mm fan in top. 140mm rear fan These are the fans they included as stock fans. You can put way more fans in there though Rear dust filter for the PSU. Covers 120 & 140mm fans. Now... Let the modding begin! Check back for updates. First off will be dremeling, painting & sleeving.
