First time water cooler. the Phantom bee.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have just finished my first full loop, in the great Phantom 630. I'm over all happy, with the out come, but I think the XSPC X20 is finding it a bit hard with a 240 Monsta, a 360 ST30, gpu / cpu block. So am upgrading to a koolance PMP 500, and a 250mm tube res ( unsure of make/model) The changes will be sometime next week. But for now I will just have to endure the noise of a miserable pump. There has been 1 change since the pics, that is the top 360 rad is now in push pull, with matching Akasa Viper fans.

I should explain the name really. I have had the nickname, of Stungy for going on 30 years, bit of a long story,not the time or place for that. Along with the obvious color choice of the MPower mother board,being black and yellow, and after seeing the awesome Akasa fans, the Phantom bee was born.

Cheers mate. the monsta is in push pull, with NFp 12's outside. There is going to be big changes in the next week, pump / res, mid plate, and a whole lot of drilled rivets. I just need to pin down exactly what pump . The go to D5 or the Koolance pmp 500. I really like the look of the pmp 500, but you can't res mount it.

No out of the box mate, you will need to cut off some little tabs, that hold the front removable mesh bay covers, into place. I just used a really hot knife, to melt through the plastic .I would say that is the only down side to the case, anything you want to use in the bays, have to be taken out, to even take off the front bezel unless you remove the tabs. But if you ever decide to empty the bays, you can use the mesh covers again.
