The 140 mm white fans have all white cable a, white connector and nice white sleeving.




Mounting the block to the Phanteks bracket was a little challenging. The instructions are very good.

The two fan cables, a 2 to 1 fan power splitter and a PWM cable adapter had to be dealt with.


Under the cooler between the heat pipes.


Folded and tie-wrapped into a compact bundle


Leaving only the white exposed on the side.

And you can't see the cables from the top down view.

So can you tell if the cooler causes problem with video card in slot #1?

Mounted on the Case Labs SM8 Tray as a Tech Bench.


Almost taller than the tray back top.


If it was then the Phanteks would have been a no go. But it is right there just right.

Had to turn the PCI lane switches off then on again for the video card to be recognized. But then booted right up into UEFI.

Good point. No interference with the card I have in there now. I will take a picture and post the clearance.

No issues with the test GPU.




And the 680 also clears nicely. But if you mounted the cooler horizontally I expect it would come real close and could be an issue.
