Nice launch, by the way, Rob. I'd wish you good luck and all, but, uh...you know. smile.gif
I do like the product name, though I think the Press Release didn't have enough fun with the "Kraken" name.
Which of your own cases does the 280 fit in? Switch 810 and Phantom 820? What hole spacing are you guys using on the radiator?

Thanks George! We wanted to try to keep it classy, just a lil. Haha but we should've had more fun. The campaign isn't over so there are more opportunities! biggrin.gif I will be posting a full list soon of compatibility, as you and I and bunch of others know, the world of 280/420 radiators is painfully inconsistent. We had previously supported the 20mm spacing however, we are now officially making 15mm spacing our standard. Tomorrow we will be making an announcement as to what this means for our Switch 810. wink.gif

As George mentioned at Corsair it is handled on a case by case basis. The same applies to NZXT.

Unfortunately the original Phantom does not natively support 140mm fan mounts.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

This is why we mod! Don't worry, there'll be other offerings in the Phantom family down the road. smile.gif

Ok, well NZXT and Corsair have essentially the same policy for warranty... BUT to my knowledge Corsair has a reputation built around going above and beyond what they've given themselves protection from. They aren't liable, which means you can't sue them for the failure, but they frequently give you the $ back anyways as a stand up move for the company and the right things to do.
Now, I've certainly heard of NZXT for a long time, but haven't heard anything about their warranty like I have for Corsair... which is the only reason I'd pick one or the other. If NZXT had a poor reputation on going above and beyond for warranty refunds, I'd nix the choice immediately for any AIO. If they're on par... i'd move to product reviews and make an educated decision like everyone else.
I know reps from both Corsair and NZXT are in here, and don't want to put anyone on the spot, but I'd say I have a legitimate concern. Basically, I'm just ignorant of NZXT as compared to Corsair.

I'll let the large community here on OCN of NZXT modders speak for itself. smile.gif

This couple also be a stepping stone into my modding bussinessnthat i want to get into. Please let me kmow thanks~
