[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 46

post #451 of 18701
The "same thing" on a motherboard would be two different 24pin locations, along with a choice of powering 4+4 or 8+4 up top, or on the bottom. As far as I understand it, you can not pick & chose which power plugs you use on those motherboards, they are supplied with extra power plugs, for MOAR POWA, for EXTREME OC.

@least, thats how my Dark & MVF function.

(oops, wasn't supposed to tell anyone i had purchased dark yet)

I have wondered why 24pin socket header wasn't flat with motherboard instead of sticking up.. or the PSU plug wasn't a 90 degree plug. Sure would make for a cleaner look.. like SATA header often are or SATA cable ends.

So far I love the placement of power connectors on the Dark, and its simple design. I know EK originally said no water blocks for the Dark, but will see if that changes.

I sure as hell hope SOME ONE makes a block for it... If not I may have to go with one of those home made blocks some one is working on, in the EVGA forums.

(WK typo for EK? I assume yes due to key location)

Well worth reading.

Newegg still showing the 14th .... but still can't find anything on the when we will be able to buy the extra 5 PH-F140SP's and 2nd Fan Control PCB.

And while the final configuration of the reservoir bracket seems to be of concern for single GFX card systems, from what I can see it's gotta go regardless in SLI configs. Since the HD Bay area is the next logical spot for pump / reservoir, would be nice if Phanteks offered an adapter to mount ya 3.5" HDs up in the 5.125" bays.

Newegg is at the very least mistaken with their release date.

Soooo, now I'm hoping that NewEgg has their Oct 14 date correct, and if so we might be getting our cases a little earlier than Oct 18.
Brian works for Phanteks. wink.gif

The 18th is still the date Phanteks plans to be sending them out. thumb.gif

We have been able to pre-order the PH-F140SP fans from Phanteks, same as with the case.
http://www.phanteksusa.com/products/phanteks-ph-f140sp

I've asked Phanteks about the fan hub several times via their live chat and their forums and they've not had any answers about it, so I'm guessing not any time soon - or they just don't know.

The res bracket works fine where it is for for all but a few very long "single GFX card systems". For example, in the Ronsanut video review he mounted a res there with a Titan. If you're going to mount two cards in sli in slots 1 & 3 on a mobo you can fit them too with that res bracket. You just can't mount a longer card in slot 4 or below. Or, if you have a shorter pcb card, like a reference GTX 670 or GTX 760, it's not a problem where you want to mount your cards with that res bracket.

If you want to mount a res with a longer card there's always the mounting location on the back of the case like in the 'Hi Tech Legion' review, and if not the "next logical spot for pump / reservoir" would be a bay/res imho instead of in the HDD bay, and there are already lots of aftermarket 5.25" to HDD bay adapters to choose from if you wanted to go that route.
