[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 33

post #321 of 18651
Well. if by some stroke of bad luck the Phanteks' fan hub does disappoint, or if I can't get my hands on an extra to control all of my fans, it won't be that big of a deal to me. I've already been considering adding an Aquaero 6 to my system to control all my fans and pumps, but didn't want to have to go that route until after I'd basically had everything else like I wanted it. Or maybe I'll settle for a Lamptron CW611 instead. It's a lot cheaper than the Aquaero 5 or 6 and seems like it can probably accomplish most everything I'd want it to.

Right on target! Just got this exact model (Lamptron CW611) and 12 GT AP 15 to go along with my build in the E. Primo. Just tested yesterday and works great. The thing that sold me to Lamptron is that apparently is the only fan controllers out there not damping tons of heat inside your case. I read that somewhere here in OCN and it is right on target. My current fan controller is a Schyte one and quite nice but it does get hot after a while dumping all the heat inside the case.

Yeah, the Aquaero 6 is also supposed to generate almost no heat, but even still there will be a waterblock available for it if you are worried about the little bit of heat it would generate.

The Aquaero 6 is gonna cost something like 2.5x as much as a Lamptron CW611 will though.

If the Phanteks fan hub works like it's supposed to, and if I can get my hands on an extra one so I can add all of my fans to it, then I'll probably use them for quite a while, and then get the Aquaero 6 eventually - maybe a few months down the line. It's not out yet - releases a day or so before the Enthoo Primo - but if it's as heavy-duty as it looks to be, and it has awesome software controls for it, that's really what I'll want to be able to comfortably control all my fans and dual D5 pumps.

However, if the Phanteks hub isn't cutting it for any reason, or if Phanteks doesn't offer an extra one for sale by itself real soon after the case release so I can control all my fans, then for now I figure I'll probably go ahead and get that Lamptron CW611 right off-the-bat and give it a whirl. Not sure I'd trust using it to control the pumps though. It supposedly can, but just amperage alone for two pumps would really be pushing it. Not a huge deal since I'll just set the vario on the D5s manually anyway.

The aquaero 6 though is a beast. I'm sure it'll be able to handle the dual pumps and all my fans.

If you are looking to use one of these, be aware that your fans will be stuck @ 100% unless you get one that has a pwm adapter that hooks to your mother board... SATA/MOLEX/6pin/8pin will all push 100% w/o some sort of outside signal.

I'm going to stuff two 480mm monsta rads in this thing, Even though i'm only going to have a single R-290X and a 4670k haha!

Anyone see the new 750D case? Looks tempting, and i could start the build right now... but it nowhere near as sleek and nice as the Enthoo Primo!thumb.gif
post #327 of 18651
I'm debating between this and the 900D. Can you fit the front side 240 rad with a 480 in the bottom? I assume you can't fit the 480 in the bottom with the front 240.

Edit: put in wrong #

240+ 480 should be doable, with some minor mods and/ or slim fans/rad.. I assume you very well could fit 280+240, and if you go slim rad in front you could also fit both the 240s and a 280, but fitting the side 240 rad would mean no 3,5" drives..
