I started using them several years ago, for the momentus hybrid drives, back before SSD's were remotely affordable, and they've sure made building easier ever since.
Best $10 you'll ever spend if you need to mount a small drive in a tool less bay:

^^ It should fit fine. Good thing about SSDs is you could stickem pretty much anywhere.

Majority of my parts are here, waiting on a couple more things then I should be ready to transfer into my new phantom drum.gif

What were your reasons for switching to the phantom over the 800D?

Hey gang,

Working on my Stretched Limo P820 build, I just ran across something I thought I'd share, since it may help you choose a top rad.

As has been hyped a bit, they started putting in slots for the 140 fan sized rads, so that rads with both 15mm and 20mm fan to fan spacing could be used.


They did a good job on the bottom, where formerly, you had to use a 15mm spaced 280.

Now you can use either 15mm or 20mm.


Here's with fans tight together as they would be on a 15mm spaced rad



Here's with the fans spaced apart by 5mm, and the screws fit properly in the slots.




Now here's the top, notice that the fans are tight together, but the left side screws are max to the left and the right side screws are max to the right.

Looks like they didn't account for the extra 5mm in core length from a 15mm fan spaced rad to its 20mm fan spaced counterpart.

The front slots need to be 5mm further towards the front.

Anyway, they screwed the pooch, and you can't use a 20mm fan spacing rad without modding.

The problem is, there's not much metal there to bring the front slots forward any farther. . . . Forget the BI Stealth, or SR1 being a drop in.




The real question is, did they get the new top panels for the switch 810 right?


Learn something new every day,

Darlene

A little Mini Stretch . . . . .

Want your new phantom 820 to fit those big 560 rads . . . . biggrin.gif

A little stretch goes a long way.

Random question but does anyone know if this case comes with the FN or FS series 200mm fans stock?

But I'm only half way there . . .

I still have one more 280 section to add in to make it 840 capable . . . .
