FCPU is normally really good at making things right, especially, when it's their screw up . . . as the fact of there being that ugly red sleeve holding everything together that's the smoking gun that the SATA power cable was never put back with the rest of the cables.

It's short, and with that heavy SATA plug on the one end, it likely fell off the work table, unnoticed, untill too late.

See how they do at taking responsibility and getting things sorted out before writing them off for future purchases.

Generall speaking, they are one of the "good guys" in the vendors' arena.

Here are some pics of the new build. Overall everything went smooth, was afraid of breaking the front and top panels when I went to remove them though. It's quieter then my previous system even with all the extra fans. Love the built in lighting and even though I wasn't sure how I'd like the side window at first, it shows off a lot more then I expected. On a side note, I never realized how loud mechanical hard drives are. This is my first time using a ssd and when I went to save something on the hard drive the noise really surprised me.

I don't even know what a hard drive sounds like any more.... love my ssd

But now people are starting to get phantom 820s in there area so we should see more members

My Phantom 820 arrived yesterday and boy is it BIG!!! It dwarfs my old Aerocool VX-9 Pro mid-tower case! Also compared to my old case where things were starting to get a little cramped, the Phantom is just EATING up my rig! Will only finish transferring stuff tomorrow though and my blue LED fans will only be arriving on the 22n'd. But I'm loving it!

I know what you mean about the side and top panels. For some reason I'm a bit more afraid to snap something with these compared to the panels on my old Phantom 410 which I'd just rip off without a second thought. It's not that they are flimsy at all, they're obviously built pretty solid, but I'm always a little hesitant taking the top panel off especially. I've popped them off quite a few times already tho with no problems.

I love my SSDs too. Anytime I have to access something on my WD black drive it seems like it makes such a racket, especially since my rig is so silent with the watercooling loop and fans turned down to 45%. My last rig sounded like a jet turbine most of the time and I'd never noticed it before.

Yea the 410 was really easy to take off
And yes I feel the same way about the case taking the top and side panel off

Guys I just wanted to know a quick thing. Has anybody tried fitting a 120mm rad onto the swivel fan mount inside the case? It seems solidly built so I think it would take the weight. The logic behind this insanity is simple. It is a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Pro closed loop by the way. If you mount the rad on the back of the case where it usually goes, it is already sucking in air heated by my graphics cards (Hot), Northbridge (Hot), RAM (not so hot) and HDD's (not so hot). So effectively its sucking in pretty warm air thereby lowering cooling efficiency. But if it is mounted on the swivel mount inside it is pulling air that has only been warmed by my 3 HDD's, so theoretically this air would be substantially cooler and so therefore I would get better temps! What are your guys thoughts on this? Thanks for any input guys!thumb.gif

This has already been done on the 810 and 820. The swivel mount is plenty sturd enough to hold a 120mm rad. Go for it love to see things done differently all the time.  thumb.gif

Guys I just wanted to know a quick thing. Has anybody tried fitting a 120mm rad onto the swivel fan mount inside the case? It seems solidly built so I think it would take the weight. The logic behind this insanity is simple. It is a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Pro closed loop by the way. If you mount the rad on the back of the case where it usually goes, it is already sucking in air heated by my graphics cards (Hot), Northbridge (Hot), RAM (not so hot) and HDD's (not so hot). So effectively its sucking in pretty warm air thereby lowering cooling efficiency. But if it is mounted on the swivel mount inside it is pulling air that has only been warmed by my 3 HDD's, so theoretically this air would be substantially cooler and so therefore I would get better temps! What are your guys thoughts on this? Thanks for any input guys!thumb.gif

I could see mounting a thin rad there with 1 fan in pull, but I think mounting a thick 120 like the TT Water 2.0 PRO is more trouble than it's worth. Personally, I'd just mount it on the bottom where it's pulling in fresh filtered air. It's easier and probably more effective.
