Is there plastic covering on the inside of the side panel window from shipping mine window seems really hazy?

you got plastic protection on the outside of the window but the inside has non. I had a giant scratch in mine. Phanteks are about to ship me a new window after a short mail to the support.thumb.gif

I've got the itch for more though, i don't know what to add/change next....

Yes,\that was one of the reasons I went with the EK, was that I could use the parts modularly......if teh GFX cards were longer, was planning to stack two 150s, one either side of the 5.25" baysbottom plate.

As for what's next ..... acrylic rigid tube ? .... paint fan casings white ?

Speaking of the latter .... anyone try taking the fan motor / blades out yet ?

There is / was .... I had plastic covering on both sides anyway. But obvious as it extended past the edge of window.

Thanks for the replies thumb.gif

Sadly no plastic on the inside of the window I was really hoping that there was plastic causing the haziness.

I also have scratch in my window. My biggest complaint with this case so far is the lack of quality control. I have paint lacking in corners and metal with gouges painted over on the logo plate,etc.

I think what happened is that due to the unexpected demand for the case, they were forced to rapidly expand staffing .... I had issues like Molex connectors installed backwards, awkwardly bent tabs that would imply "the new guy" built that part.....not exactly mistakes of inattention or carelessness, just inexperience or lack of training. Phanteks has been great tho at stepping up and resolving any issues.

I think your right. I am not to conserved about the minor flaws the window is going to drive me nuts tho lol.

Do your release tabs work correctly on the fan filters and front fan panel?

What did everyone use for screws for the bottom rad fans. I had issue with stock xspc screws interfering with bottom filters going back I place.

Once it's broken it's usually obvious how it comes apart. biggrin.gif

Well, for those who are looking for a bit more room for a tube reservoir (or for a neat way to do a tube and twin D5 pumps), with just a VERY LITTLE bit of trimming, here is my suggestion. I had to do this mainly to get enough room to clear a pair of massive GTX 780 Classified video cards.



I actually didn't like how that looked with a bit of U-channel molding, so I made the cut from one side of the drive bay to the other side.




Measure and drill three holes to hold the whole assembly on the side panel.




Here is the mock up.




As you can see, just by removing about 8mm of material will give you PLENTY of "vibration clearance" on both sides of the reservoir/pump top.


Yes, you will lose your two lower removable drive bays, but I plan on putting either an RX240 in "push" on the side (or a 30mm 280 radiator in "push/pull") anyway ... along with the 30mm 480 in "push/pull" up top and a 60mm 360 in "push/pull" on the bottom.

The modularity is great, saved me at least £20 in just getting the £4 acrylic tube. Yeah I had my eye on rigid tubing, I'm Just a bit unsure on how complex if is to do, not to mention I can't use any of my current fittings

Hardware wise there isn't really anything right now that makes good sense to buy. I have a decent Z87 board and CPU, and my 2 680s are faster than a single 780, so if I want any more graphics power I would need to drop at least £1000 on new cards and blocks! I was hoping to wait till the next line of cards before getting one, so I'm kinda at an pont where I'm not sure what to get next
