[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 320

post #3191 of 18688
Hey guys just a quick question about the fan hub. The manual says only one fan can be used on the Fan1 header but I just realized I had accidentally hooked up one of the spitters to it and the fans are working fine so I'm just wondering if having the fan splitter connected to Fan1 will have an adverse affect on the longevity of the hub or the fans?

It may be that the only reason that there's only supposed to be one fan hooked up to the Fan1 header is so that there is only one fan's rpm/tach signal being reported to it instead of several fans which would corrupt the signal and make it unusable, in which case a properly made splitter cable where only one fan has the rpm signal wire attached might make it a non-issue, but it might need to only be one fan for other reasons than that. I'm not sure that anyone will be able to definitively answer that either way.

If it's still working for you then I don't suspect that you've damaged it or shortened its lifespan, but I personally would have already unhooked it and made sure to only run one fan on the Fan1 header like it says to. You can splitter all the other channels if need be, but not that one.

Thanks Unicr0n. I'll take your advice and just hook one fan up to it.

The issue with putting a 420 in the bottom is there is not enough space, width-wise, between the PSU shroud and the panel with the Phanteks logo & 5.25" bay latches. There's only 127mm of space between the two so even some brand's of 120mm-series rads (360, 480) are too wide to fit between there. You would have to remove the whole panel or cut the whole lower portion of that panel out.

Oh poo. I guess I might have to end up modifying mine. I don't like the look of a 420 on top and a 280 on the bottom.

What are you cooling ?

A 420 + 280 is more than adequate for twin GFX cards and CPU overclocks. The reason you can't use the 420 as it won't fit behind the driver bay cover panel which blocks view of everything behind it. So if the 420 did ft, you wouldn't be able to see the last 140mm of it.

I don't know if you guys saw, but Phanteks put up pictures of the white Enthoo Primo on their product page. It looks sooo good.
