[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 1533

post #15321 of 19214
So I have the enthoo pro M acrylic case and have some headphones with an in line mic. These are the head phones

https://www.amazon.com/Sony-MDREX15AP-Fashion-Earbud-Headset/dp/B00JG2WRUO/ref=pd_sim_23_3?ie=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00JG2WRUO&pd_rd_r=A5RVWXHA0GNPYYMP4E3R&pd_rd_w=HQbRV&pd_rd_wg=Sipke&psc=1&refRID=A5RVWXHA0GNPYYMP4E3R

I'm trying to use the mic with the plug in the front of the case. I've plugged the headphones into the mic port but the computer isn't detecting a mic. Does anyone know if the port on the case is capable of this, or do I have to plug in a mic and headphones separately into the each port.

Messing around and fitted my rampage v edition 10 in the evolv tg. I also kept my led backplate on the board as well. I wanted to use my thicker rads but i opted to just go out and try something new. I picked up 2 EK rads...360 and 240 PE. I have to say i have bought rads from xspc, hardware labs, swiftech and koolance...EK rads are the worst in my opinion when it comes to debris in the rads. Hardware labs have been the best almost requiring no flush. With my setup i really wanted not to have to take the led backplate off the r5e10 and didn't really want to mess with the integrity of the case, but i knew for certain i wanted a phanteks case but don't want to shell out $700 for the elite, the evolv was my next favorite case but i thought it was too small for my components and then of course reading about the mobo clearance issue. I eventually decided to try with the mobo in the case and just measure(eyes) the clearance issue. I duct taped the area as needed and for the first time ever, i brought my dremel to my beloved chassy. When it was all said and done i guess-timated, i cut out a little over a quarter inch and the motherboard sits nice and flat in the case. I am not finish however as the tubing runs was just a temporary look to see my options. I've settled on this look, i also need fittings as i didn't purchase any but now since i did this loop i realize the fittings needed.
What do you guys think?
Should i change anything

Alright decided not to mess with that tint. But now another problem, none of my LEDs are turning on (front and power). This is how it's wired

Here's mine. The fan grill is a 140mm from MNPCtech my potato camera doesn't do it justice.



I did this thing long time ago. I upgrade later to a eatx therefore i needed a bigger case and got the enthoo pro.
Now i got a atx board again and still have some love for the atx evolv.

But because i had heat problems with the enthoo itx in the past and had to cut open the top im struggeling.
I got now a corsair h100i gt 280 rad. I would probably try to get air inside through the radiator because the top panel of the enthoo will surely heat up again.
Im always wondering if people with a evolv atx and 5820 5830 or something similiar have heat problems if they push heat to the top panel.

To me the evolv is one of the most beautiful cases out but also it felt on the itx almost like a closed case...


And yes i have put a m-atx board with a 5820k in a enthoo itx...the heat is real biggrin.gif

but it seems the atx version does heat up on the top aswell :S

Hello guys, one of these days i will upload photos from my Enthoo Pro with the 2x140mm Thermalright TY-147A in the front, i say this from now its very tight BUT the price is very low compared to noctua.
Sorry @doyll i had to upload them months before. biggrin.gif

I ended up using vinyl wrap to close off the top. From what I can tell at this stage the results are likely to be a whole bunch of nothing.

The only effect was bringing the stock top position a little closer to the resting on clips solution (but not beating it). Resting on clips got me to 36-37c (water temps) while stock was 38c. Compared to my last test which had a +3c difference between the position respectively, adding the vinyl brought it to a difference of 1-2c. So a small improvement, but not worth the effort.

IMO next revision, Phanteks needs more vent surface area. The front vents shouldn't be blocked by the front USB panel. The back vent should be deeper and maybe integrate with the case frame. And the side vents should be bigger. In other news, the sky is blue.

so here is my current idea to expand the airflow on the top of the case for a top mounted radiator. Each dot will be a ~1/8" hole drilled through the plate. (this is a rough draft and was done in paint so pay no attention to the horrible quaility and possibly more than likely off lines and colors)


CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

there are two options that are available. I can leave the hole raw metal and have them shiny or i can have the bare metal annodized to another color (for instance Red). This will also bring the option for some lighting effect to show through the holes as well.

All done but i have a leak. My fitting from the res to the cpu have a leak around the rotary area. I have more fittings but none like 90 g1/4 to compression and also in that chrome color. I can switch the fitting(other side of res) have the same fitting but that part of the loop was the most troublesome as it the only part w/o a quick disconnect. I also couldn't use my drain valve because all the g1/4 couplers i have don't work for some reason so i was forced to kill that idea. Quick disconnect does offset time/trouble when i want to drain so i guess it's not so bad.

I like it, but I can't but suggest you move the 240 rad down so you can fit the third fan on the top. Your res should still mount. Otherwise I think it looks terrific.

Thanks but doing so requires me to route tubibg through that hole on the psu plate which i didn't want to do. Also i'm going to be using the hdd slots for 3.5"drives. I had a leak earlier but i have since rectified the problem.
