[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 297

post #2961 of 18675
I have an XSPC RX 360 in the bottom of mine. It was an extremely tight fit, but it will fit. Take out the top drive cages, place the rad where you want it and push it down between the front panel with the logo and the PSU indention. If you push enough it will fit, and won't bow out the front panel.

I don't have eLoops to say one way or another, and some who do have them say they just don't notice it, but just as many if not more have reported their eLoops get louder / buzzing almost like the blades are hitting something when used in pull. Turns out it's NOT due to the blades actually hitting anything like some claim. They just sometimes give off a helicopter-like sound effect if the front of the fan blades (the 'pull' side) are too close to a restriction.

The manufacturer has recognized the issue and says their eLoop is not designed to be used in pull, but if you are going to use it in pull they suggest using a shroud at least 5-10 mm thick ...

Thanks Unicr0n. I did read about the noise and found a video of the turbulence noise people have reported but I was hoping on low RPM B12-2 eloops that that wouldn't be an issue as the noise seems to happen noticeably in the higher RPM's as Blacknoise and some others have stated. I did actually find those posts you posted so sorry if it seems like I didn't look around first. I guess I was more concerned about the blades contacting the radiator as to me that would be a more annoying sound and aside from Simgularity Computers, there's no mention of that. I'm currently running Noiseblocker PL-2's so I'll stick with those.

Regarding the SR-1's I have seen builds where the HDD/optic bay cover has been cut in two and I have to agree with you that it never seems to look that good since I was thinking of cutting it in two but your post has confirmed my thoughts about the aesthetics. I think you just saved me around $300 thumb.gif

I never realised the RX360 was that wide. Unfortunately the Black Ice rads are 6mm wider so shoe horning isn't an option sad-smiley-002.gif

Hmmm? I don't know about earlier versions but the new V3 RX360 is 130mm wide.

The space between the panel and the PSU shroud on the Enthoo Primo is 125mm. My 124mm-wide alphacool monsta is a tight enough fit it doesn't really want to go without removing the grommet(s) and even then it takes pushing down in there with both sides touching. I can't imagine shoving a 130mm-wide rad down in there without some significant bowing somewhere.

Maybe the V3 is wider than XSPC's previous RX versions?

EDIT:

Yeah, according to this from MartinsLiquidLabs, previous RX360 was 124mm wide.

I have one of the older versions of it, I thought it was 126mmm, but I could be wrong. But, you're right, whatever the size is, didn't want to go, but did and didn't bow anything out that I can tell. I love the case and would buy it again, but you would think Phanteks would have anticipated that and made a slight adjustment in the fit. My guess is they probably will in version 2.

Have to say I was looking forward to getting this case. The only case I could find with a reasonable price that could fit all my gear without modding. Now after three weeks and two damaged cases I could never recommend this case to anyone. The boxes were not damaged but the cases are actually getting worse. The first one had the fan cover on the front panel broke so it wouldn't close. The second one had all the clips that hold the front panel broke and the led wire was ripped out of the connector. Not sure who to blame Phanteks, Newegg, or UPS but it doesn't matter at this point. I am not waiting another 2 weeks for a broken case.

Sorry to hear that mate. Yet, I got mine all the way from Netherlands to Brazil without any problems and I found the packing flawless...
post #2967 of 18675
Yeah that's really some bad luck. Sounds to me like you have a serious problem with the shipping carrier.

My box arrived pretty beat up looking on the outside, with one corner caved in pretty bad. It had me worried enough that I had the UPS guy make a note of the damage to the box before he left, but after opening it up I was relieved to find the case itself was mint. It was packaged at least as well as any of the other cases I've ordered before (CM Stacker 830, Corsair 500R & 800D, HAF X, Cosmos 2).

My guess is gorillas & apes at Newegg or/and UPS. If case is serviceable contact Phanteks and they will send you replacements for broken bits.

Damn .... I'd contact Phanteks and Newegg and do the baked beans routine. .....



Reference comes from B&M Baked Beans .... and is a socially acceptable way of saying "Bi***ing and Moaning" smile.gif

Someone at this point oughta (newegg methinks) be stepping up to the plate and taking care of this.

I will note that I hadda take the front panel off and squeeze from both size to get that thing back on.

Here's the way my EP came from New Egg fortunately I had no issue other than the still unresolved cloudy side panel glass. Took them 5 weeks to finally reply and I still have no idea what their intentions are based on the quoted email below.

 

Their response:

Quote:

Hello,

 

Sorry for the delay.

 

The side window is tinted. We do notice a little cloudiness and is finding a solution to it. Thank you

 

Sincerely,

Phanteks

 

 

Not sure who patched the box for shipping or during shipping but this is the way I got it.
