A full video tour of the awesomeness of my new computer case & motherboard. Prepare to geek out at a way-too-detailed level. However… I wish something like this had existed when I was looking to seleect this case. I would have bought it much faster!! So, here you go guys: A rank amateur tour/review of your case.
This is also the first time I ever brought a computer up to speed without deploying it first: It’s sitting on my ping pong table with a wifi card in it. No wires other than power. Good thing, too, because things didn’t work out at first, I had to ship my motherboard back, and ultimately, had I deployed it before building, I would have had to deploy, undeploy, and redeploy, and that sucks. Physically getting a computer into my setup is taxing.
My case: By far the best I’ve ever owned, though it has a fatal flaw with harddrive noise in certain harddrive cages, and I wish the windows were bigger, and I wish the color-cycling could be automated. But still: This NZXT Phantom 820 Series case was $199.99 from NewEgg.
