NZXT Phantom XSPC Rasa RX/RS240 guide.

post #1 of 160
Thread Starter 
The purpose of this thread is to show how the XSPC Rasa RX/RS240 is installed in the NZXT Phantom.


This is not a step by step guide. This is to give you general guidance in planning your build. thumb.gif

There are 3 basic locations that would be considered "entry level case work".

1)Back

The easiest I would say is hanging the rad off the back of the case on the outside. That's fairly self explanatory though so I won't be covering it at all. Just an FYI though the Rasa kit does come with the needed mounting bracket to hang the rad.

2)TOP

The next easiest would actually be mounting the rad on the top of the case in place of the two 200mm fans. This seems harder than it actually is.

3)BOTTOM

eek.gifWarning this method voids your case warranty! eek.gif The hardest place to install the 240 rad would be the bottom of the case. The reason being that you have to remove both hard drive cages to do so.

So you're looking at a website wondering what will my kit look like when I get it. Will I be able to install this thing or am I getting in over my head?
Comes like this:

Here is the kit all spread out:
P1010904.jpg
Block:
P1010905.jpg
Reservoir/Pump
P1010907.jpg

Looks a little over whelming?
The answer is no! This is absolutely painless! I would compare it to building your first rig. The first time you turn your pump on is like hitting the power button on a fresh build for the first time.
As long as you take your time there is nothing to be worried about.

First things first decide which location you would like to install your rad in. There are pros and cons to each location.

Top:
Pros:
Don't have to modify the case any. Easier to drain if you don't add a drain line. Leaves all your hard drive trays intact.
Cons:
Loose your top exhaust fans. Fans come rather close to the motherboard components. Depending on your mother board you may not be able to do a push pull setup.

Bottom:

Pros: Keep your top 200mm exhaust fans. Allows you to add another rad to the top if you wish. Fans contribute to the overall airflow of the case.
Cons:Have to do a bit of modding to get here. With out some really custom drive tray work your stuck with a max of two HDD locations. Difficult to drain with out a drain line. Can not do an effective push pull configuration without getting thinner (12mm) fans or modding/taking out the small drive bay cage. And finally there is less airflow here unless you cut out the bottom of the case beneath the rad. There are how ever slots in the bottom that come that way from the factory.

Radiator in the Bottom Method


I'm going to start with this method, because this is the one that I did so I have first hand experience. Also I have a lot more pictures of this!smile.gif

The first thing you have to do is remove both of the bottom hard drive cages. The good news is that you can re-mount the small hard drive cage on the bottom of the 5.25" bays.
-The small hard drive cage is screwed in. So just unscrew that and take it out.
-Unfortunately the large one is riveted in. Grab your drill and a decent size bit and drive them out. Not hard just kinda nerve racking as this voids your warranty and just doesn't seem right.
Case with cages removed:
P1010906.jpg

Next you take the small cage and flip it upside down. When you line it up you can mark the spots to drill with a sharpie through the screw holes in the bottom of the 5.25" bays.
I picked up some 6-32x3/8 machine screws to attach it. These screws are a bit too long and block the bottom bays. You may want to try some different ones.

P1010992.jpg
P1010993.jpg

Now your case is ready to install your Rasa kit!

Before getting started you are going to want to wash your rad out with distilled water. Use a funnel and carefully pour water into one side and turning it till it comes out the other. Even if you don't notice there is crap coming out with the water left over from manufacturing. You don't want this stuff floating around your loop!

First thing to do is install the CPU block.

-There are several plates that come with the kit. Use the instructions to find the one for your mother board. Also you can just line the holes up!
Note - If your missing your particular back plate you can still install the block. You need to use some plastic washers and screws to hold the block to the cpu.
P1010917.jpg

-I put my fittings in the block next. That way I could get tight fit while the blocks wasn't attached.

-Remove protective plastic and apply thermal paste (included with the kit, but its kinda junk...)

-Place block on CPU and put all four screws though. The screw assembly goes screw-spring-metal washer-plastic washer. Tighten the screws down one at a time in a cross pattern being careful not to over tighten.
Note - If your using and AMD chip. Word is the kit does not come with a back plate
-Take your rad and install your fans first. You won't be able to do this later, because there just isn't room between the fans the and bottom of your new HDD Cage.
Place your rad in the bottom of the case. As it turns out you can use two of the outer screw holes to hold the rad in place over the intake vents.
P1010924.jpg
After your rad is in you can screw the fittings into the rad.

-Take your reservoir and pump combo and install the two fittings into the back. The lower hole is the intake side. Put the reservoir in the lowest two bays you can. If you used the same screws for the hard drive cage mod as me then it will be one bay up from the bottom. Ideally I would have put it all the down.

-Run the pump power wire through the grommet nearest it.
P1010931.jpg

-Install the screws that came with the kit to hold the reservoir in place.

-Now for the trickiest part. Installing your tubing. The easiest way to do it is to connect it to one of the barbs first the go to the one you are connecting it to and hold it near it giving it a little bit more tubing cut it with a pair of scissors. Before you connect the tubing to both barbs you want put two of the tube clamps on. They go over top of the barb and hold the tubing on.
For best results use pliers to pinch the ends together really tight.

-Now that you've got all 3 pieces of tubing connected its time to add water and test the system.

-One of the nicest things included with the Rasa kits is the 24pin jumper.
P1010923.jpg
You can see it connected to my power wire. DO NOT CONNECT ANY OTHER POWER WIRES AT ALL.

-Get yourself a funnel to add water to the reservoir. Mine wasn't long enough so I made a bong with some of the extra tubing.
P1010927.jpg
Put your funnel into the reservoir and fill it with distilled water only to the top being careful not to over fill.
P1010928.jpg[IMG]http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/water-cooling/water-cooling/water-cooling/ -Now is the moment of truth. After placing paper towel around your fittings to help you find leaks...P1010931.jpg
P1010930.jpg
...Flip the power switch on your PSU. The pump should come on and begin drawing water into the loop. After a couple seconds shut the PSU off and refill the reservoir. These are not very big reservoirs so you need to repeat this process a few times till it doesn't drain out any more.
If there are no initial leaks there likely wont be any. Just to be safe though run your loop only for a minimum of 8 hours straight checking the paper towel every hour or so for drips.

If there are no drips your loop is good to go! drum.gif Shut the PSU off install the black screw plug into the reservoir and the loop is complete. Now you can install the rest of your wires as usual.
P1010946.jpg

When you fire your rig up for the first time make sure you check your temps to be certain your loop is running correctly.

(stock fans are not LED. Also they are junk!tongue.gif)
Tips Specific to the Phantom


The Rasa dual bay reservoir comes with two interchangeable face plates. The down side for us is the screws the come with the kit prevent the door from closing. One solution is to find some really flush mounting screws. Another is to drill holes in the door to accommodate this.

Pro tip: Try putting some chalk on the screws and close the door to mark exactly where the screws are hitting so you know right where to drill.

The kit comes with an led with a molex connector on one end that goes into the back of the reservoir. Try running this wire through the slits in the 5.25" bays. Hides it really well.

If you don't have a modular power supply like me then you likely have a ton of wire to hide! Use the back side of the rad/fans to hide your wires.



Installing Your Rad in the Top of the Case


TheLoop.jpg

(Follow the instructions for installing your cpu block that I included in the section on installing your rad in the bottom. Then proceed with the rest of this guide.)

The second option is to mount your rad in the top of your case. This is the second easiest way to mount a rad in a Phantom and looks really cool when you are done. If you don't want to get to involved or are concerned about voiding your warranty this is the way to go.

-First thing to do is remove your plastic front and top (and of course the side panel).
So it should look like this (but with your gear in it still wink.gif)
P1010908.jpg

-Next remove your 1 or 2 200mm top fans by unscrewing them and pulling them out the bottom.

-After that and after you've ran distilled water through your rad to clean it out, screw in your barbs to make your you can get them tight.

-Now you can mount the rad into the top of your case. Fortunately for you there are already holes in the top of the case you can use. These holes are on both sides of the 200mm fan holes in the middle. You will be mounting the rad right in the middle screwing into the four middle fan mounting holes. Depending on the hard ware available to you can still fit two fans on the top to push. CAUTION! make sure when selecting your hardware you do not screw into the rad fins. Puncturing a fin and causing a leak will void any warranty that comes with the rad. In other words if you cause a leak this way and ruin your rig, it will not be replaced by XSPC. Always test fit your hard ware.
Radfromthetop.jpg

As you can see the 240 Rad fits nicely in the middle. Be aware though with certain mother boards you may not have clearance for the fans this way.
Mountingholes.jpg
Topless.jpg

-Now that your rad (and you've already installed your cpu block to in your mother board) is in you should install your reservoir/pump into the 5.25" bays. Install it as close to the bottom as you can. Assuming you haven't done the small HDD cage mod you should be able to go ahead and mount it in the bottom two slots. If you have an optical drive install that in the top most slot after leak testing your loop. Before you put it in screw your 2 in out barbs in making sure to get them tight. Then just slide the whole assembly in like any other device.

-After your reservoir is in run the power molex through the grommet nearest the bays and connect it. There are four screw holes you need to mount the reservoir with. They are very small and near the front two on each side.

-Now all that's left is to hook up your tubing. Here is a good example of what to go for (although obviously yours will be clear)
WaterCoolingLoop.jpg

You do this by first connecting the tubing to one side. Then take the whole length to the barb you want it connected to. Making sure to leave slack so you don't cause a kink cut the tube with a pair of scissors. After you connect it put two of you tube clamps (black plastic) on the tube and connect it to the barb. Push the tubing all the way to back of the barb. Then slide one clamp forward to one barb the other back to the other and tighten. I found the best way to get these clamps tight was to use a pair of pliers to really clamp them down. Do the same for the two remaining lenths.
TheBeast.jpg
-Now that all your tubing is connected you can follow the guide for filling and leak testing about in the bottom mount section.
Rig.jpg
This is an excellent example to follow!

-Now you can mount your fans. Turn them so the wires are facing back and just run them behind the mother board.
That's really all there is to it. Make sure to check your temps and to be sure everything is working correctly.
Also as I mentioned above, the door does not close all the way with those screws in the faceplate of the res. Here is one way to work around this:

Special Thanks to LPRaver89 for Tips and Pics!

Radiators that Fit the Phantom

Well there are certainly many limitations on us using the Phantom for water cooling it's definitely worth it when your done! I'll do my best to come up with a list of rads that will fit in this case one way or another. Now bear in mind this is a list containing only "moderate" modifications to make the rad fit.

Personally I've put an RX 240 in the bottom and an MCR320-QP-k in the top. When putting 360 rads in the top there are going to different fan/rad combos that will fit with one mobo/ram combo and some that won't. The best thing to do is make the measurements yourself. For that reason I'm not going include any base measurements.

The easiest way to install a 360 rad in the top is to use the center fan as a mounting plate:
P1020042.jpg

All you do hold the rad in place and screw the fans in with the included hardware.
-Pro tip: only tighten the screws a couple threads in until you have everything positioned the way you want it. There is a good amount of play back and forth/ side to side with the fan so get the rad where you want it; then tighten the screws down.
-Pushing rad all the way towards the door edge will get you the most mobo clearance:
P1020040.jpg
As you can kind of see the rad is farther left.
If you're not liking this method you can do something like this:
CIMG3912.jpg
With this method you obviously are making a custom bracket and cutting the case.
-Next thing would be you can only push/pull the first two spaces on a 360 up top. The last space is a pull only. If you want push pull you have to modify the usb/audio strip.

EDIT: And a Late Entry From K3nny! Very Epic Front 120mm Rad Mount.

Ran out of room in this post for pictures, so its here:

120mm Rad Drive Bay Mount Mod.

Confirmed rads up top:
Swiftech MCR320-QP-K Push/Pull last top fan needs mod.
RS240 Push/Pull
RX240 Possibly push only (from top). Thicker rad measure for clearance.
I can only assume if the RX240 fits in your case the RX360 should as well.

Confirmed rads on bottom:
Pretty much anything in pull only. Anything push/pull with 12mm fans.
If you don't need the small hard drive cage mounted above, any fan configuration works here.
360 Rads will not fit on the bottom too long.


Will be adding more as I find out new info.



Thanks to K3nny for the last pic there! Biggest inspiration to me and many others!
If I'm missing anything let me know.

Thanks for this. So from the added pics at the end it looks like that is a RS 240 in push pull?

Curious if that rad can fit in the top in push pull. I'm assuming the rx240 in p/p will not fit in the top.

Curious if that rad can fit in the top in push pull. I'm assuming the rx240 in p/p will not fit in the top.

Actually depending on your motherboard/RAM you can fit an rx360 in the top in push-pull. With the rx240 things would be more difficult and you would need to make a bracket to do push-pull. The problem comes with mounting the rad to the case. With a 360 rad you can usethe center top fan to hold the rad to the 200mm fan cut out. I'll be adding details on this to the guide soon.

Maybe a good idea if youre a little unsure. Really though the rx240 in the bottom wasn't that hard but it was really fun!
