and make another one of a kind mod on my buiild.

Now I need to order more parts so I can build out the res setups . . . triple loops; red, white & blue thumb.gif

Yup. Cables fit fine. That's what I have in mine.

Ok thanks so much for the reply. I ordered my Phantom 820 in white yesterday. I absolutely cannot wait to get this beast of a case. Its going to look amazing with my new Maximus V Extreme, H100I, and dual 7950's.

Another question. Does it comes with two 200mm fans mounted on the top?

Also, this whole huge mess of cables that it comes with is making me a little nervous. Can someone post a picture of their cable management so I can get an idea of what to do with them? I have never used a fan controller or anything like that. This is my first case over $50. It would be much appreciated. Thanks guys! -Josh

Hi mate, as far as i can remember the 820 does come pre-fitted with one 200mm top fan, one 200mm front fan and one 200mm side door fan [which can be moved and placed as a second 200mm fan mounted to the roof [ some one please correct me if i am wrong, i remember only the three. front, top and side ]


i would post pics of my cable management but its currently undergoing a re-working [ see pics in sig rig ] . there are alot of cable management 'loops' behind the motherboard tray, and also the drive cage is recessed from the side panel,. so there's room for looped cables to be tucked and zip tied to the outer of the upper drive bays smile.gif


hope this helps mate

*edit .....

just remembered, under the top panel in between the usb ports and power switch there is the PCB for the led controller and the fan controller. im almost sure they are separated into 'front','rear','top' and 'is' , these should be connected to the PCB via small 4 pin connectors [iirc], it should be a case of unplugging and removing the spare/unused fan cables from the case. Should be less cables to manage mate thumb.gif

Sorry mate, just had a look and the initial PCB in the middle is the led controller, the terminals for the fan controller are under the main controller/on-off switch unit. not sure if they are detachable yet though. may be worth a look though mate

If gou fo enough cutting, they will fit in there. I put two 480s in tandem in the bottom of my original Phantom full tower and it's at least an inch shorter in length. I had to do a ton of cutting though.

I was going to go with a Corsair 800D, but then I came across this thread. Suddenly, my plans have changed. So since I've got like 3 days to wait for my delivery, I'm wondering if it'll be easy to dremel off/remove the side panel fan mount and leave the grids intact. I don't mind the screen portion of the side panel below the acrylic window, but I do mind the fan mounts shining through when I've got my rig lit up with the LEDs and my cold cathodes. So is removing the side panel fan mount possible while leaving the grid intact?

Hi mate,

Yes you can dremel the 200mm side fan mount without affecting the mesh, sorry for the photo quality, this room is quite dark at moment..,,



just bend back each point of the mesh, remove and dremel away thumb.gif

hope this helps mate

*edit....
Now you mention it, its a pretty good idea. I may join you with removing the mount's wink.gif

Using this case, I've decided to do a tribute build dedicated to the memory of my mother. She died from metastatic cancer when I was 12... That was many, many moons ago... I just need to find a way to express it using this case as my canvas... This being my first build I'm sharing with OCN and lacking any road map whatsoever, it may take a while for something to materialize... I'm off to bed, goodnight OCN.
