[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 218

post #2171 of 19100
Finally all set up. I feel like crap, I should not have bought that Cocaine energy drink from FrozenCPU. I'm a bit nervous about leaks, doing a test now but hearing the water falling into the res makes me nervous.



I couldn't get my compression fittings all the way down but I hope this is good enough? I can't turn them any more.


The 420 on top was a huge pain to get in, I basically had to remove everything and unscrew a ton of screws to bend some pieces. Special thanks to @JackNaylorPE for the tip about the 420 on top with shifting it over to use as a fill/air port.

Yeah, my 420 was a massive pain as well. Ended out almost disassembling the entire case to fit it in.... Plus mine doesnt have the additional ports on the top like the UT60 does, just has them on the side. It does have the bleed screw though which is nice although I haven't used it yet.

Compressions dont need to go all the way down to be secure as long as the hose is all the way down on the inner piece of the fitting, and to be frankly, forcing the outer ring all the way down can compromise the security.. Although it needed quite a pressure from my end to get the hose out of place when i forced it tongue.gif

Just for grins, I have created a "Phanteks Enthoo Primo Owners Group" page on Facebook. Feel free to stop on by and show off your builds.

We got them as tight as possible with fingers, no tools. I hope I didn't over tighten. If no leaks after this test, should be good.

Anyone know the pump speed with no pwm signal? I have my pump running but it seems very quiet. I just hear water pouring into my res mostly. My buddy told me it was 60%.

Yhea sounds good thumb.gif just check in on them and retighten in about two weeks or so since the hose gets seated and expands a little in the heat

The fittings are a loss but they can be saved.... I'd keep 2 anyways to do the pump connections. I found it quite easy to tell the truth, hand sawing was a PITA but when I took the ole scroll saw in from the garage was cake.

I just used the alphacool screws with 2 washes as the heads go thru the rad mounting platform.... were you using the platform or just laying on the floor ?

I wuda lent ya my 780 Classified .....so ya didn't have to risk ya new card while modding'



Yea that's the Ti but when ya flip the cardboard over it becomes a Classy 780 smile.gif

You're braver than me .... I didn't wanna cuit so found an alternate method...... my solution (if it came to that) was to use two 150mm res's separated by a connector tube....

What rad...with the Alphacool 420 .... ya put it in sideways with the 6 port end down in the rear ....top of rad facing you and drain port end up high in the 5.25" bays..... then left up....hand in thru front drive bays .... start lifting up low end and rotate into place.

The 35x2 is 100% until it gets PWM signal .... that's why I plugged in just 1 of the 2 pumps to fill.

For the bottom rad, use the screws in the toolbox the case came with. They have a smaller head, makes the filters slide in easier but not perfect... Also I didn't use all of them for my 480, about half actually.

Has anyone mounted a 3.5'' hard drive anywhere else other than the drive cages and the 5.25'' bays? I need to mount one drive which would eliminate my need for a drive cage...

I used one cage ... put in 2 HDs and 2 SSDs by taking the SSD mount and installing it in a HD tray.. Have you used up 8 bays already ? Seems ya could get away with mounting one on the side of thr 5.25 bays or above the PSU on back of MoBo Tray

I actually mounted the hard drive sideways on the rubber pump pad. Works quite well! I'll take some pictures
