[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 196

post #1951 of 18708
Still need to do upload quite more pics and write some info on my build, but here's a little something to keep fresh pics in this thread wink.gif


As you can see, gold is a part of my color scheme and I actually got some of the carbon fiber wrap stuff that people often use in their builds (especially on the sides of radiators) and Im thinking of take out the Phanteks logo in the little window, covering that panel in the gold carbon fiber wrap and then installing the Phanteks badge back in it's place with some white lighting as well as possibly my Samsung 840 Pro SSD in that window. So instead of seeing a dark Phanteks badge through the window, you'd see a gold carbon fiber background all lit up with the badge and maybe the SSD (which I think fits the aesthetic of the case since the SSD is flat black with beveled polished edges just like the front intake fan cover/plate). Not sure about the SSD, though. It might look too gaudy or flashy or whatever but it could also be really cool. I just think the Samsung 840 Evo and Pro SSD's look really nice.

Anyway, I'll add more pics and details later.

My guess is less airflow with push/pull because the 13-14mm gap is only about 18sq cm airflow area compared to 120mm fan being about 100sq cm airflow area.. less than 1/5th the area of fan.

I'm gonna say the pic is looking down at the 480 and the one against the front fans is on the left

The clear fan is on the st30. The red fan is the 480. The photo was taken from a top down perspective.

So I got my rig up and running finally after pulling a few 12 hour nights this past weekend. I had to cut the reservoir bracket with aluminum clippers to fit the 3x 290s and re-drill the mount holes for the res but I covered the cut with some electrical tape and you really can't tell. The rig has been mining litecoin solid for 2 days now and the 2x 290s that are underwater run at 51C full tilt and the one not under water is 83C which is pretty awesome for that card. Water temp is at 100F so hopefully that's pretty good. I still want to do some better cable management, some color schemes and get lights in there but she is purring like a kitten for now:









This was taken through the window really quickly:

You gotta do what you gotta do! We honestly shouldn't have had to modify it all and it's a huge oversight from Phanteks. Who spends $250+ on case that's made for watercooling but doesn't have at least 2 cards these days? I'm sure a lot of people have a single card but many of us have multiple cards. The case is already enormous, just make it another few mm longer or make the 5 1/4 bay a few mm shorter.
