[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 132

post #1311 of 18657
Just looked at my XSPC D5 bay res and saw a small puddle under it. I know it leaks, just didn't know it leaked that much. Glad the drive cage is slightly offset otherwise I think my drives would be shot. I have contacted them twice about it and have yet to get a response.

The 290 may preclude leaving the res bracket in . Certainly CF will not fit if ya have 3 slot spacing (Slot Nos. 1 & 2 / 4 & 5)..... I measure 10.9" as the distance between the expansion slots and the res bracket. The Saphire 290 is listed on newegg as 10.9"(L) x 4.1"(W) x 1.4"(H) .... so it's gonna be literally "by a hair" if ya get it in.

Now that leaves ya about 67mm before ya hit the back of the 5.25" drives bays..... IIRC the Photon is 70mm in diameter. Now if ya wondering how I remember all this .... "been there done that" analysis smile.gif

See post # 1000 .... should have all the data you'll need in the PDF attachment regarding dimensions. I really, really, really wanted a glass reservoir and the only ones I know of are the Photon and Aqualis..... neither fits.....I miss by about 2-3mm with the shorter 780 DCIIs.

I'd recommend the EKRes 3 - 250 ... will be ordering one myself today for the Enthoo

I will most likely end up with the EK as the rest of my components are ek. I did find a few articles stating 10.5"and one at 10.8" for the 290pcb. Photon may fit then?

Will a 360mm UT60 in push/pull fit in the top and in the bottom easily?
post #1315 of 18657
XFX says 10.8 and HIS says 11.46" but I really don't see how they can be any different as they are all "reference cards". Looking at the pics, the only thing that is different, is teh sticker on the fam and the packaging.

My 780 Tis w/ EK WBs are 10.5" long ..... and since

.... if you find a card that is also 10.5", I don't see it happening

Now if you wanted to try and re-drill and re-thread the holes on the reservoir bracket .... and ya sure ya won't be off by as much as 1mm, ya might be able to get it to fit.....getting the cards out without the reservoir would be a bear tho,

Guys I am trying to find a 480 mm filter to put above the top rad in a push pull. The outside grill doesnt seem like it will catch much dust. Can you recommend a good one?

If you aren't worried about looks, (i don't think it'll be too much of a concern if you keep the existing filter in place), then standard ladies tights sandwiched between the rad and 1st set of fans does the trick nicely

Ah awesome, do you have the address? I doubt he'll send free ones to the UK, but I don't mind paying for them if they're available

I've currently got the three non-pad fans in the roof cavity on top of my rad, but as they're slightly thinner, the long bolts that come with Alphacool rads are too long.
To solve the problem I've got 5 M3 nylon washers under each bolt to raise it up. FYI 1 M3 nylon washer is perfect allow the bolts to hold the fans, as without them the head of the bolt is smaller than the fan screw hole

@jack, gpu blocks are less restrictive, whereas if you got strong enough pumps there will be water going through the cpu.. My fans is coupled with my corsair link and they range from 600-1400 rpm so in game tmy cpu is at ~60 degrees with a 4,6 ghz and my gpus at stock is hovering around 40-50..

Fit in the case yes....clear ya MoBo heat sinks, allow ya access to cable connectors who knows.......480s fit in both top and bottom....420 fits in top, 280 fits in bottom.

BYW, (1) 420 + (1) 280 (515 watts @ 1250 rpm) gives 13% more cooling than (2) 360s (454 watts @ 1250 rpm) and ya can use the fans that come with the case w/ them

What fits where can be found at:

1. In the H20 possibilities video here
http://phanteks.com/#&panel1-1&panel2-1

2. In the Enthoo FAQ here
http://phanteks.com/Enthoo-Primo.html

3. In the Enthoo manual here
http://www.phanteks.com/assets/manuals/Enthoo-Primo.pdf

In addition, I'd suggest

1. You really should download the PDF in Post 1000 of this thread. It has all the case dimensions, clearances and what not.

2. Also look at Jesse's Review and FAQ over at the ModZoo....as it goes to the heart of your question.....he had a 60mm in there as I recall but took it out for a 45mm

The outside grille won't.... but there's a filter on the underside of the grille already.

But just don't take them from any lady, get permission first smile.gif

This is what worked for me

My thought was, I only have so much rad capacity and would prefer to use more of heat they are going to exhaust on the CPU rather than the GPUs....so aside from having dual loop, I *may* see some advantage with 2x flow going thru the CPU as compared with the GPUs. Theoretically, the idea is sound..... in practice, I'm thinking there will be some effect but certainly no where 2:1

I'd be happy with a 10-20% shift in heat load from the parallel install.

I still don't understand the routing of that bridge smile.gif .
