Phanteks pre-orders will receive cases before anyone else.

it was the 14 they pushed it back and probably will continue to push it back till all phanteks pre-orders are done any other retailers probably won't get the case till at the end of october at the very soonest

Oh....it's probably worse than you imagine. I just flat out refuse to pick mine up again. It's actually even pretty hard to drag across the floor now. I was pretty shocked by the final weight, even coming out of a Fractal Define XL didn't prepare me. tongue.gif

I wanna run a separate PSU for pump and fan cooler. Why ?

1. To fill the loops w/o turning System PSU on
2. To allow pump to run for few minutes after system shutdown
3. Option....to control fan speed w/ controller and maybe even allow rad fans (0.14 amps each) to run after shutdown.

Mini 5 amp PSU - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9106/bus-192/AC_to_DC_Adapter_-_110V_AC_to_12V_DC_Converter_w_Standard_4_Pin_5000mA_Max.html
Molex Splitter - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/19357/cab-1486/Akasa_4-Pin_Molex_Y_Cable_Splitter_AK-PW-Y-20.html
Fan Controller - http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=36265

Doing the math ..... the 35x2 uses max of 3 amps ... leaves 2 amps for fans if do Option 3 .... or 14 fans .... I will have 10 fans on the 420 / 280....so shud be ok

Controller will Display:

Top Radiator In - - - - - Bottom Radiator In - - - - - Ambient Room Air
****************No Fan Control for these sensors********************

Top Radiator Out - - - - Bottom Radiator Out - - - - Case Interior Temps
Controls Top 6 Fans - Controls Bottom 4 fans - - Controls Case Fans

Why ? ...... Like anything else ..... Cause it's Interesting idea and would be fun smile.gif

Questions / Input Requested:

1. Suggestion for case interior temp sensor

2. Suggestions for ambient air sensor and where to put it

3. Mounting Suggestions for mini-PSU.

4. Option 1 - Suggestions for aesthetically matching switch for Enthoo to turn off mini-PSU

5. Option 2 - Suggestions for some kind of auto timer thingie that would either sense the system shutdown and turn off feed from mini-PSU say 10 minutes later or that I could push when i shut system down it would initiate timer.

I'm going to "engineer" a caster base for mine. Will also give better airflow to bottom radiator. Ordered 20 40mm casters.. Will look like something Mega Movers use. biggrin.gif That's one place I think Phanteks goofed.. only the little slit vent on each side of bottom to supply air for bottom fans. rolleyes.gif

you could also just jump your current PSU w/ a little wire. green to black.


I like the idea, but I feel like I need to state that your/any system will have little need for it. Components cool off in a matter of seconds once the system is shut down. That being said "need" is a silly word, especially on OCN. thumb.gif

i would recommend an IR gun for ambient temps out side of the case, as for inside of the case, I would stash it close to one of your rad's, just not the exhaust side.

ohhh, you are looking to run a second PSU ALL the time for your water cooling components... That's a different story.


ouch, LAN party systems are supposed to be small, I couldn't imagine toting around my tri-sli tri-rad tri-monitor computer to lan events. It literally fills up the entire back seat and trunk of my car.

Yeah, do that on every build but I certainly don't wanna be messing with my carefully hidden cables and risk busting a rigid tube outta its fitting when wrestling to get the 24 pin plug out.

Agreed ..... but .....

1. It's a given that the PSU will be there for reason stated above.

2. I will already have the temp monitor set up (well assuming Phanteks starts shipping the Fan ) as i will need 3

I don't want it in my head.... I wanna read it on the screen smile.gif ..... Logging all these is under consideration :0

Well the intake side is inaccessible and out for obvious reasons....top ones are outside case in the "attic"

Yes.... smile.gif ..... acrylic tubing, reservoirs, tie down cables..... don't wanna move all that every time I do sustem maintenance.

The whole bottom is opened up to supply air to fans, not just through the slits on the sides.



That, besides through those vents along the bottom on the front and sides of the case, also lets air come from all around through the gap at the very bottom of the case from the rubber feet (unless it's placed on carpet or something obstructing that gap), and through the the back where they opened it up a bit.



That said, somewhat similar to what you're going to do, I plan on making a little rolling cabinet the same length+width of the case about 6" tall that I will mount the case to so it can be moved around when needed. Just like the one I made for my Cosmo 2 it will be painted black to match the case and house one long drawer that pulls out from the front to store extra parts, software CDs, etc, everything that I like to always keep with the computer, and will roll around on a set of extra large 3"(75mm) desk chair casters.

Edit: Nevermind, that won't solve the keeping a second PSU running after the 1st one shut's off. Derp.
