Old ATI & Nvidia cards had the PCI-e power on the end of card. The length of new cards can make it difficult to fit in some cases.

The card they used plugs in on top.

Anyway.. I already order it and paid for it so have to wait the seller stock it....

Hmmmm, seeing as NewEgg says "Release Date: 10/14/2013" (not to mention the shipping is less than half what a Phanteks pre-order cost) and overclockers.uk says "ETA: 04/10/13", I'm wondering if perhaps those of us who pre-ordered from Phanteks might see our cases a little earlier than the Oct 18 date we were emailed?

I would hope so, or I hope that pre-orders from those 'etailers are delayed past what they are marketing.

Not to sound too crabby, as I'm still totally psyched to be getting this case, but I do seriously hope that I didn't shell out ~$300, which incl ~$30 more in shipping than NewEgg is asking, more than a month in advance only to see people who bought it from NewEgg posting their builds before I even get mine. That would just be an insult to injury imho, especially seeing as NewEgg isn't going to actually be charging people for their purchase until it has shipped.

Maybe those of us who did pre-order through Phanteks will be getting something extra. Not sure what that might be though. I've hinted before I'd like to have another fan hub, so something like that would be pretty cool, but I don't know it would suffice to make up for seeing people who waited to place their order elsewhere get their cases first, if that were to happen.

Seems to me that, unless our pre-ordered cases were getting sent out earlier than expected, Phanteks ought to be requiring that 'etailers like NewEgg correct their listed ETA dates so they don't have those of us that jumped on board early seeing something like that and gettin' our panties in a bunch.

I agree with you Unicr0nhunter.

I'm guessing North America will have cases before Europe... but I could be wrong. Wouldn't be first time and definitely won't be last.
Very different shipping routes from China to North America (15-18 days) than China to Europe (30-36 days)

Me thinks Overclockers.uk may be overly optimistic. wink.gif

They use to back in the day. AMD/ATI use to do that allot.

I finally bit the bullet and preordered in the hope of getting the case before others could buy off the shelf. I don't know if it will work out that way, but at least I shouldn't have to worry about the cases being sold out when I try to buy. My wife says I'm worse than a little kid on December 10 with Christmas two weeks away. She's right, too.biggrin.gif

Arent we all.

I received my LED strips in the mail and I installed that in the front. Will do a video with the top one.

I apologize for an image that is crappier than crap.

That white Led looks amazing! Much better than the blue! How easy do you recon it would be to change the led colour in the front fans to white aswel?
post #410 of 18696
Buying white LED fans would probably be easier then pulling out the LED's in the stock fans.

The red LED fans I have from coolermaster(i think) are melted into the fan. Just a reference, possible it's the same for Phantek fans.
