That case has swallowed that 780ti and made it look tiny in there. The size of this case always astounds me!

Hey, all, so I ended up buying (as my 3rd case to try this time) a Phantom 630. The build quality seems good, the whole thing is sturdy, and it is HUGE (coming from a HAF XB and Corsair 540). I just have one problem (actually several, but they are all the same issue) the screws for my rads don't work and NZXT fibbed to me. frown.gif

I emailed support and inquired about a 280mm rad fitting up top and in the front. Well, they responded and said that both would fit, yet it only fits up top. The 30mm rad up top fits great, with lots of room inside the case for the 8pin CPU. The front doesn't fit a 280mm (Alphacool ST30), it's too long. I decided that I'd deal and just install it on the bottom, well, yeah, good idea, right? Wrong. The metal at the bottom of the case is contoured so that my rad's screws don't stick all the way through the fan and rad plus bottom of the case....so, next option, install the fans and rad inside the case? Yeah, no go there either, the screws just aren't long enough!

Next option, install my 240mm rad (XSPC AX240)? This doesn't work either, the screws (diff thread and length) don't fit either mounting option!

This is my first custom loop, and I've had nothing but issues with the whole thing. I've been without a desktop for almost a month, and it's starting to piss me off.

Does anyone have any suggestions for the screw issue?

I dont know how much the 630 differs from the 820 but I know that my 820 fits my 280 rad at the bottom like a charm. Have not tried anything for the front as both my rads are 360 up top and 280 down low. And I don't have any need for more rad at the moment. Maybe a bad case? RMA? Wait for @IT Diva to reply though. I am sure she can give you a hand as she is pulling apart a pai of 630's for her Mix n' Match build.

I forgot to mention I'm using Phanteks 25mm fans, with 30mm screws, and it worked fine up top, but the bottom of the case isn't that great. I tried a 35mm screw there (on bottom) and it sounded like it brushed up against the fins. So, the bottom rad is not tight.

Did you look in your rad to confirm that you had hit the fins? I would make sure to make sure you didn't puncture the rad. Where do you REALLY wanna put the rad. Cause maybe just use a dremel tool or similar and just grind down the screws a few mm?

For the screw issue I would just go to a local hardware store with the shorter screws, and purchase some longer ones! ( have the attendant match up the screw threads) thumb.gif

Ideally I'd like to mount the rad up front, but that's not happening without some modding. I haven't looked yet, as I'm about to go to work, but I will. I wasn't expecting the rad to fit up front, until NZXT support told me that it would. Maybe I should just go to 120mm sizes as they offer greater support in cases...?

The 30mm screws work fine up top, but are too short for the bottom; whereas, the 35mm screws are long enough, but I think just too long by a little bit. There is no size in between.

Edit: I just took the fans off the rad. I can see where the screw hit the rad, but I don't think I punctured it. I definitely scratched off the paint, but am now worried that if I put water in it, that it will leak. Wooo, go me.

I wasn't expecting the rad to fit up front, until NZXT support told me that it would. Maybe I should just go to 120mm sizes as they offer greater support in cases...?

The 30mm screws work fine up top, but are too short for the bottom; whereas, the 35mm screws are long enough, but I think just too long by a little bit. There is no size in between.

Edit: I just took the fans off the rad. I can see where the screw hit the rad, but I don't think I punctured it. I definitely scratched off the paint, but am now worried that if I put water in it, that it will leak. Wooo, go me.
Yeah I had a look at some reviews and on NZXT's sight. Although the front can take 140mm fans I don't know if it will natively support 280mm rads though. That being said from the looks of things I don't think it will be too hard to mod.

Well the best thing to do for the rad would be to leak test your loop outside your case for 24 hours or so to test for leaks. I know XSPC rads warranty is void if you puncture rads with screws, So I hope you are ok cause I imagine other companies will be the same.

Use the 35mm bolts, but go to your hardware store and pick up a few washers. 1 or at the most 2 per bolt should be sufficient to provide the spacing you need to make a snug fit without them going into your radiator, and will compensate for the 35mm being just a tad too long for your needs.

Except for this....Support for the win, lol.

Also, my rad is alphacool, they don't warrant replacement for puncturing the core either.

Hello Derek,


Yes the Phantom 630 can support a 280 rads in the front and up top.


The top also support a 360 rad.


Sincerely,

NZXT Support

Does the Phantom 630 support 280mm rads on top and in front?
