The Build and Finished Product
To get to this point took me about an hour's time. Once the risers are placed in the tray and the board is screwed down, the rest is almost plug and play. Added features like holes to get to the expansion card screws are nice and the flexible locks for the optical drives were a treat to use. I am very pleased with the results. Very little effort went into it and you end up with a clean and sexy finished product.
I tied a few wires up when they needed it, but with this power supply it was like it was built to suit my needs exactly. The leads on this PSU aren't the longest I am used to using, but everything is placed so nice behind the scenes it ends up being short paths to get things connected. The fact that the covering panels swing out like a car door when the thumbscrews are removed means big bunches of wires aren't a problem. When I put the panel over this mess, I just set the front in place and closed the door. Even this amount of grouping adds no adverse pressure to the panel.
Along with flickering of the HDD activity and the solid power indicator LEDs, the top fan is another source of a bit of lighting. The glow is nice and subtle. It adds a bit to the interior, but on the outside it isn't so bright that you don't want it running all the time.
The fan controller is very easy to use. Once connected and under power only those fans wired internally light up. I didn't add a front fan, so the first light is off and the slider is set to the lowest position. The two door fans, the top fan, and the rear fan also are lit up and for this image they are set to the maximum setting.
I just needed another look at the full package before I go through and give my final thoughts on the Phantom.
