[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 373

post #3721 of 19221
I'm wondering if I should do a build log once i get all my parts. I have some mod ideas, but it's nothing extravagant.

Did we find out the OEM for the clips in front and on the top filter?

I believe they're made by a company called Sagatsune, but you'll have to buy them from a retailer, not direct from them.

In the US I've found them referred to as a non-magnetic mini touch latch and in the UK they can be found by searching for a 'push click bin latch.

FWIW, in the US I'd avoid getting them from HomeClick. They messed up mine and another person here's orders pretty bad. Ordered packs of 4 and got one latch instead. They did eventually make good on them in my case at least, but it took a while and a hassle.

I paid right at $12 USD for 5 of the latches and that included shipping from the UK to the US. I didn't think that was all that bad. Seemed a whole lot better option to me than the 10 days of at least as many back and forth emails with Phanteks support before they finally agreed to ship me the first two broken ones.

I also ordered 4 of them from Homeclick here in the US for almost twice as much at the same time (we weren't positive at the time whether any of them were the correct size latch - turned out they both were), and the order off uk.ebay arrived here first and was complete. The order from Homeclick didn't show up for a week after that, and only included one latch instead of 4. Had to jump through hoops and wait a couple more weeks to get the other 3.

EK G1/4 Thread Fitting Extender - Nickel - 8mm (Fitting Extender G1/4 (Ni))
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/18760/scr-701/EK_G14_Thread_Fitting_Extender_-_Nickel_-_8mm_Fitting_Extender_G14_Ni.html?id=4NiLmkLB&mv_pc=1256

I was gonna do the Xt45-420 and UT6-280 rads in white also..... but 1) they don't come in white in the size I used 2) the price premium is a bit much and 3) I changed my mind having the black case .... with a white case I'd paint myself.

I don't see the Classified's fitting...... I made this "mockup" back when we didn't know what would fit (paint can was stand-in for the EK Res.



But it wasn't till that 1st Asus DCII 780 arrived that I was able to confirm that the lower of the two cards will actually fit with the plastic cover removed. The DCIIs are 10.5" long and there's 0.1" clearance between the EK Res and the cards. In addition if the lower card's water block extends full length (acrylic EK one with logo circles does, one without circles doesn't), it will hit the slanted part of the bracket. The Classy is 11".0" long which is about 0.4" too big to miss the Res and the bracket (for 2nd card). Note that my cards are plugged into slots 2 & 5 (hanging a bit into 3 & 6)

I think with the RIVBE, you can uses slots 1 and 4 but they appear to be a bit lower on that 7 slot spacing board than on my 8 slot M6F so don't see the Classy fitting here.....at least not with the res bracket or a "velcro mod"

Options would include the excellently reviewed MSI (10.5") which uses the standard reference blocks and backplate

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/msi_geforce_gtx_780_ti_gaming_review,2.html
EK-FC780 GTX Ti Backplate - Black [3831109868331]
EK-FC780 GTX Ti [3831109868614]

The Asus model is 11.3" long but so was the 780 .... the PCB on the 780 was 10.5" tho and the other 0.8 came from the air cooler overhang so mit disappears with water block on .... the 780 it looks like uses the same PCB and cooler.

Wow....no posts since my lunchtime visit ..... Don't wanna lose it in the pile of responses above so making separate post.

Has anyone looked at the rejected air that comes back up through the top with the phanteks fans (prolly same on bottom) . The fans frame is wider at the corners and middle with a space in between and with a 420 sitting in a space that fits I 480 I see / feel:

-Significant amount of air coming back up at the edges of the fan array between the edge of fan bay and edge of fans.
-Significant amount of air coming back up between fans .... the way the fan frames are indented, there like a 1/2 wide hole between the corners and the middle.

At normal speeds nothing comes back, but when I run a bennie or use RPM mode and set the fans to 1200 it;s quite a bit.

I was tempted to "black tape" it but I'm much too anal for that smile.gif. Was gonna make a template in AutoCAD so I can cut it out of some type of thin material....preferably not metal.

1. Has anyone else noticed this ?
2. Has anyone noticed it and said "why bother" ?
3. If I make the template, would anyone want it uploaded ?
4. Any suggestions on materials and sources ?

Would not need to be stiff.... was even thinking of using a rubber sheet material to provide sound deadening, some extra sealing capability where it runs over pads and flexibility ... something like my ModMat.

I'm not sure why it matters. The point of positive pressure is so air goes out of any leaks. However you could use some kind of veneer (copper comes to mind) to cover it up..

I've noticed it but not bothered to do anything. System temps are quite low as it is.

The top and front grill mesh is pattern R1.5 T3.0 with only 22.68% open area. I'm thinking of replacing the grill mesh. Have found Hex mesh H4.5 T5 with 81% open area (3.6 times more than stock). Think it would be perfect, but comes in 1x2meter sheet and costs £99.99. Can also get with 2.5mm holes H2T2.5 with 64% open (2.8 times more than stock) area same sheet size and price.

Could use construction paper from hobby shop / crafts store and cut with knife.
Sign vinyl for sign maker's shop. Peel the backing to stick it on or not. They could make it too with your pattern if it's the right file type.
Or make a tube that fits around fan and goes to the grill.

Problem is this is not air leaking in / out of case, it's air cycling inside of case.
