[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 26

post #251 of 18687
No matter where I read or what videos I watch, nobody mentions the second reservoir mounting spot except with a passing mention. Exactly how large of a reservoir can we put there? I really want to put the XSPC Photon tube reservoir in this case but I'm not sure how to do it yet since it's such a wide res.

Those of us in the US who have already pre-ordered got an email saying the "order is scheduled to ship October 18, 2013". I suspect it won't show up in places for immediate delivery until not long after that.

Pg 30 of the owner's manual may help you - avail for download from the Phanteks site:

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

If I'm not mistaken, the XSPC Photon Tube Reservoir is 75mm wide. With those mounting holes being 71.5 mm apart, it looks like there's going to be more than a couple mm's space on either side of those for a 75mm wide res to exist between the GPU and the side panel.

You're going to have to get the card in there first before the res though.

edit:
Here's the best shot I could find of it from an inside view, to hopefully give you a better idea how much space there will be on either side of those mounting slots:

You're awesome. Thanks. I'll scour that manual later after work and see what other info I can learn from it

I mounted an XSPC Photon in that spot in the Hi Tech Legion review....

The Photon fits in the rear with no issue. It is the front mount where it is tight if you are using a 10.5" GPU. You can mount it up front, but all of the mounting holes will have to be drilled, and there is very little margin for error.

I apologize. I actually posted in here a few pages back bashing that review. I only watched about 5 minutes of it before I judged it pretty harshly. After reading your comment here, I went back and rightfully watched your video like you deserved and I am left ashamed. I should have not judged you so quickly. You did a great review and I hope to see more content from you in the future.

Also, thanks for pointing this out to me. I feel that the slick design and glass tube of the Photon really compliment this case well and didn't want to have to settle for an EK res or even an Aqualis. Your review pretty much allowed me to solidify my plan for this build.

The photon will fit in the rear, but will create a tight look. My original plan was to use a XSPC photon 270, but for me that was rubbing against the new EVGA SLI connector, so I ended up not using it. If you are using a regular SLI /Xfire connector you should be fine.

You might have to drill a hole or two to mount the plate on the Photon.

I'm throwing in the towel, this case just didn't have enough space w/ dual PSU.... I look forward to all of your epic build logs!
