Some of their stuff is cheap. They do have some nice products like their radiators. I love my nova 1080.

I have a phobya balancer too and its a pos. The plating is horrendous. Its too bad since it does work really well.

I disagree absolutely with this. I've had many Phobya products from cheap to expensive and never had a problem. In my experience their quality across the range is consistently excellent, especially compared to others.

broken already! havnt even had water init yet and the brackets stuffed! mad.gif

but the rest looks good

I've got the balancer res which came with full clips and with the EK-Uni brackets, they work really well.


I would think they should replace the item, because there was obviously a flaw in the plastic.

I have had the same problem with the Phobya Res clips, a shame, because the rest of the res is pretty decent!
the plating is like a fingerprint magnet, but it just takes a little rubbing to clean it up..

Anyone got a sketchup model for this beauty?
post #1556 of 1907
I am in need of a name for my build.

I have been going for the kind of green poison / nuclear look, and will be adding green lighting soon.

Something along the lines of what Singularity does on youtube.

Any help would be great!!

I'm bad with names myself so can't help. However, I do have to disappoint you: many people think nuclear stuff glows green etc. It's actually blue ^^
See for more info:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherenkov_radiation

A couple of vids on youtube as well to see it in "action"

But green is still a cool colour. If you were running Ivy Bridge then I would've said "Poision Ivy" . I'll keep it in the back of my head and when something worthwhile pops up I'll let you know.

EDIT: In regards to the Phobya stuff: I've had fans, fittings and sleeved extensions. None of them have left me particularly impressed. The fans were downright disappointing actually.

Where did you guys get replacement mounts for the res? I need one for my iandh stealthres which is the same diameter. I know that the EK multioption v2 mounts are too big.
