Sounds like some extra from the strip could be tucked away easily enough. I guess let your husband do it. Your shop sounds lazy.

So this morning i get a phone call from computer shop saying they wouldn't install the 2m of lcd lights because it wouldn't fit in the case.

Please people tell me 2m would fit into the case?

My hubby said he would install them himself but has anyone put in 2m of led light fine? Thanks
It depends on your definition of "fit". I've got the Enthoo Luxe with a 2m LED, & it's still so long that the ends overlap by a few inches. Your P400 is about 20% smaller and has the full PSU cover which makes the space for the LED even smaller. It likely would overlap for half the case. That doesn't mean that it can't be used though. If you want, you can leave it doubled up in a section of the case, or I believe you can cut it to your desired length to avoid the overlap, though I haven't tested that myself. Either way, just have them ship the LED strip & install it at home.

Good news though, I just got off the phone with Phanteks, and they said you can buy a replacement top cover for $20. I may just do that so i can freely mod the top cover with mesh insert so it can breath without having to worry about ******* it up.

Nice only $20 that's worth it.

Yeah very lazy :-(

I told them i wanted it before the 31st of august so i could play the new WoW thats coming out as my pc now can't handle it :-)

Thank god for hubbys that know how to make things better. All i wanted was a purple computer and you can't find many around here.

Thanks i just told hubby to go around the pc a few times and let the other stuff just be tucked away :-) not to sure on cutting i would never cut lcd lights. it will be mighty purple now :-)

I recently finished my build and found the phanteks case to be problematic in terms keeping temps down. Like you I have a 360 exhaust up top and a 280 intake up front, but i'm not running push pull like you.

When I first got the system going I didn't install my front or top cover cause I was worried about airflow and wanted to get a good baseline. My idle GPU/CPU temps were around 30°C and load temps maxed around 45-50°C. As soon as I installed the front and top cover, my idle temps rose to 40°C and load to just over 60°C. The top cover in particular is very restrictive, and causes a lot of ambient heat to make its way back into the case. Mid-game, as soon as i took the top cover off my temps dropped within a few minutes back to my baseline average.

It's tempting to hide fans up top for a low profile push/pull configuration, but it's just not worth it unless you remove the top cover. You'll have too much air pressure up top and you'll be creating a vicious heat cycle back into your case.

If you have not sealed the radiator tray to stop from above back down into case you are not going to run cool.

Fans need at least 40mm clearance to have even a chance of flowing air. A 140mm fan has an airflow area of 144sq cm . A 140mm circle 40mm tall has an airflow area of 175sq cm. If there are 2 fans side by side, 1/4th of each fan flow area is compromised and we have 132sq cm airflow area. 3 fans in a row means center fan only has 1/2 of this airflow area open .. that is 88sq cm airflow area to the fan's 144sq cm.


But the bottom line here is if I can cool a 98x@4.4GHz and KFA GTX 770 LTD OC and not hear it 4 feet away from me the Enthoo Evolv ATX is definitely a cool and quiet case. tongue.gif
And I still love your rigid tubing layout! thumb.gif

Doing that will limit airflow to only what the back venting can flow .. which is much smaller area then top and front venting. While it might work (I've seen air do stranger things), in theory it is a step backwards.
