For those wondering how much space they have to install fan controllers, would say you have about 10mm of clearance with the door closed. I had a NZXT sentry laying around and used that for comparison. The door has can filed on the inside if you have a device that wont let the door close flush.

So dual bay res with big screws like the xspc ones will fit nicely ? smile.gif

I work in the engineering dept. at a pressure vessel fab. company, so I was looking at it thinking, castors off ebay, ~ £10, 4mm steel plate, get someone in the works to knock me one up... but is probably going to be massively industrial for home use, (we usually work with +30mm steel)

How 'bout fabricating me a acrylic tube bending jig out of aluminum smile.gif

Once my case arrives I'll be able to figure out exactly what it will take. Obviously the prices above are my cost for materials plus glue, filler, sand paper and paint, but at a guess about £30.00.

Definitely be interested! Yeah get your case in, and see what it would take, then we'll go from there!

Im afraid we only use carbon or stainless steel, but if you have an idea in mind of what you want, I can take a look at it and see if I can get something actioned!

Hey guys. Just signed up to this forum, because I am seriously thinking about getting this case.

However I do have a couple of questions that I haven't found answered in this thread.

1) Does a GTX 770 fit without removing the cover in the back next to the MB tray? I know it theoretically should fit, but I'm looking for practical. Because if I pay such an amount for a BIG Tower I'd hate to be fighting for a couple of millimetres of space, you see.

2) I heard the cushioning of the HDD cages is not up to the standards of the rest of that case. So vibration and noise could be an issue. Is that true? Because, combine that with the hinged front door and this can become painstakingly irritating. I only took my chances once with such a case (Thermaltake Shark) and it drove me crazy!! Can anyone tell me what the case looks like with that door removed? Please don't tear me to pieces for asking this.

Thanx for your help.

Welcome to the forum zambalek80 thumb.gif

Depends on the GTX 770 you choose. It comes in many sizes.

Jessilamba will probably be along in a couple hours and have the answers you need. He's one of the few with the case in hand. biggrin.gif

His review is very good and he has an good FAQ list.

As Doyll points out, there are too many different length GTX770s to be able to say. Most of the EVGA cards are 267mm (10.5") or less, but there's also triple fan cards like the Gigabyte Windforce models that are 292mm (11.5").

The reservoir bracket has a plastic cover on it. With the plastic cover off the reservoir bracket has a notch to allow for slightly longer cards installed in slots 1 - 3 in your mobo.
The max length for a card with the reservoir bracket in place is ...
257 mm (10.1") reservoir bracket installed with cover
277 mm (10.9") reservoir bracket installed without cover
Of course the reservoir bracket can be removed and then cards up to 350mm (13.8") will fit.

I haven't heard anything like that about the HDD bays. Not sure what to say about that. Where have you heard that from?

As far as I'm aware, I believe every review that we've had linked in this forum so far, video and print (at least the ones that were done in English), has had basically all good things to say about the HDD cages and the tool-less inserts.

However, I've definitely heard complaints about the door on the front. I LUV it personally, but can see why not everyone is crazy about it. Not sure exactly what it would look like without it, or how hard/easy it would be to remove, but you can probably get some idea looking at it with the door open.

1 - Check out the review that was linked to, as that shows whats the max length you can have with a GPU and the brackets still on.

2. I actually have my pump installed in the front 5.25" drive bay, and the panel door actually helps with the noise. If I leave the cover open, I can hear the pump, with the door closed I cannot hear the pump at all. Also the side panels have little tiny rubber feet to prevent any noise from the side panel vibrating.

The quality of the case is really really good, and any place where you can have some vibration, the designers at Phanteks have made sure that there are rubber grommets or some sort of vibration dampening is present.


For reference my case has the following items:

1 - 14 Fans
2 - Two 3.5" HDDs
3 - Two 2.5" SSDs
4- Swiftech MCP 35X pump (running at full speed)

And with all those components (other than the mobo and GPUs), the build is really really quiet.
