Yea i thought about modding that too, the thumb screw latching is very poor design and week. But I still love this case, i think I'm going to replace all the fans that came with it becuase they really do suck, lol. They are to low RPM and do not really put much airflow through the case. I turned all them off and my temps on my cards and CPU never budged but about +1 or 2 celcious, lol!!! When putting my hands over each fan you can barley fell them and they are turned all the way up, but no biggie easy fix. Also does anyone else find it a little hard to change the lighting color, the turn button for it on the front is bit of a pain.

Well after a weekends work I finished my water cooling loop in my Phantom it may give you some ideas of what is possible But after this I feel this case is actually not as big as you expect to be.


That is a 180 dual rad at the top the biggest I think posible to fit with push/pull config.
I went for a single mpc655 vario and I am glad I did 24v it as it wasn't quite enough with 12v it was making a cavitating kind of noise untill I upped it to 24v and it made it sound smooth.
I went for intake top front and bottom and exhaust side and rear. the reason clean cold air for all rads and also I have found that in 2 months I have had this case that dust will build up from the front filter doesn't seem to work too well, so I would recomend putting another filter on the fan directly as this fan was obviously the main culpret beause of the dust I cleaned off.
I guess having too many exhausts made the case negative pressure and it sucked dust from every little crack and mesh hense wanting to change the configuration around.
Also for those who don't know the whole top of this will simply unscrew.

Nice setup. But why are you running 2 radiators? You are more than able to run the one @ top as your main radiator to run this whole loop. But nice setup. I'm going to keep my CPU on a system by its self and just run my cards on another liquid cooling system, the reason for this is to keep both seperate on heat and of coarse I already have the corsair H100i, lol

Ok looks like i'm reformatting today and see if the problem solved if not then i know there is something wrong with either my motherboard or video card itself. Looks like i'm getting close to a possibility of getting an ivy bridge. I hope not cuz this is such a good computer. I haven't had any problems for a long time. Gonna cross my fingers the reformat solved the problem. Cuz last night i decided to disconnect the internet and left my computer on idle for 6 hours and 44 mins and it works fine. After watching a movie on tv. I got on and decided to play BF3 offline. I played for a good hour or 30 mins can't remember and my screen went black again and computer restarted itself a couple times.

Honestly it could been bad drivers or a windows corruption. No clue. I just hope the reformat solved my issue and pinpoint the culprit. Now IF the reformat didn't SOLVE nothing *knocks on wood* Which i HOPE it will. Anyhow if it didn't then i would know it's EITHER my video card failing or my motherboard is failing or the H100 has an issue?

Also i have an question. Is it ok to run FULL speed on the fan controller up the top of the panel? Or am i supposed to lower it down?

Here is the update. I reformatted and was ready to install windows update and drivers and my pc was running for a good hour and i wasn't done with upgrades and bam my screen went black and pc restarted again!! Any idea what it is now? Is it my video card? Motherboard? Or cooler? Temps look normal. I wonder what is causing this!

I am running memory test right now to see if it's the culprit and of not it could be video card or cooler.

I doubt it's your cooler unless your overheating by miles, it'd have to be hitting around 98C for your computer to turn off so test that when you get back on. When mine was seated wrong it ran at like 80C (scary) and that was under prime95 so it'd have to be bad to make it turn off unless you're doing serious OC

atleast video card will be easy to test (unplug and use onboard)

Youre right it couldn't be the cooler. Could be my video card or mobo then. I'm still running memory test. Using extended test. Just to be sure. I doubt it's the monitor cuz its new. Also doubt it's a virus cuz this is reformatted. I will keep ta fellas updated.
