We would like to say thank you to ASRock and HyperX for helping with the rest of the hardware for this section of the review!
Honestly, there really isn’t much to say for this section. This is one of the easiest cases to build in. We’ll install ASRock’s Z390 Phantom Gaming 9 first.
Once you pop the cover off the backside, you have easy access to install the bracket for the Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Phantom Gaming Edition.
We ran the power supply cables up next to get them out of the way, and then installed the CPU and front hardware for the cooler.
There is plenty of room to work for even a tower air cooler like this.
We landed the front I/O cables and front fan cables and put the covers back on. You can see here there are almost no visible cables except the EPS 8-pin running up the back under the cover for CPU power. The area under the PSU shroud easily hides any extra cable slack as well.
We then installed our ASRock Phantom Gaming X Radeon RX580 8G OC GPU, and twin HyperX Fury RGB 240GB SSD’s under it, then the HyperX Fury RGB memory and called it done.
All said and done, it took less than 15 minutes to assemble this system, and we normally spend that long on cable management alone. The basement space and large cable management covers make having a clean system with perfect looking cables a snap.
