newegg has posted a new ETA of Tuesday 10/22/2013

I love working with Mark, Bucky and the guys at FrozenCPU, but $42.85 in shipping + 21.62 in tax for me is a $45 premium over newegg.

More Good news / Bad news

Good News ..... Mushkin corporate hooked me up with one of their distributors who managed to secure me some DDR3-2400 CAS 10-12-12-28 RAM

Bad news ... delaying the order waiting for the Enthoo cost me $80 due to post Hynix fire price increases.


Is that $42.85 shipping for ground or for a faster method? They would only charge me $18.62 ground, no tax for shipping to NJ.

I suspect there may be some miscommunication / misunderstanding in JackNaylorPE's post.

$42.85 is what Phanteks charged for shipping if you pre-ordered through them, and I really have no idea how it's being shipped.

I have no idea what FrozenCPU is charging for shipping, but I'd be surprised if it was the exact same as Phanteks.

Edit:
Still no email or anything letting me know if/when it did get shipped. Makes me wonder if they are going to ship today or not. Perhaps another delay? Or maybe Phanteks isn't going to let us know when they shipped or give a tracking number. I sure hope they do because I'd like to make sure someone is home when my case does come.

Believe that shipping is USPS Priority and honestly I thought this would be too big for priority. For a few dollars more you can select UPS Ground. In fact, I had selected Priority then realized, even it it actually is USPS priority, they wont deliver it they will just bring me a slip and make me wait even longer to go pick it up. UPS Ground will deliver. Point is, I contacted Phanteks about this and they switched me to UPS Ground.

Weird. I was never given any options in shipping like priority or whatnot, just that flat fee was the only choice and it didn't say what/how. I paused my order at that point and the live chat person at Phanteks had no idea either, just that that was the charge for shipping, so I went ahead with my order.

I ordered mine the very first day - first hour I do believe - that Phanteks offered the pre-orders. Evidently they made some changes to their shipping options afterward is all I can figure.

Depending on how far you are from Frozen, you might just make a little road trip out of it.

I'll be there within a week after case arrives. My Frozen parts list is $2100 .... I expect lunch outta the deal when I visit smile.gif

Still need to confirm a few things ....like the reservoir issue ... did ya see my post on that one ? Post No 676

My bad.... the format or the order looked very "Frozenish" .... since it was ina frozen related post, I incorrectly assumed it was frozens

Phanteks is gonna take a black eye on this...... As I said earlier, delays have cost me $80 in RAM price increases, my monitor has gone up $50., CPU is up $20 since I made my parts list...... there's no excuse the failure to communicate with you guys who pre-ordered.

I've realised that in my hunt for getting the maximum amount of rads into the case I've totally missed the 140 space at the back!

Looking at the photos, it looks like I can fit a 30mm thick one, but if I have my 420 up top with the outlets at the rear of the case, I'm not sure if I have enough space to connect the top rad up...

b. As above but on back side of HD cages or 5.25 bays (would hide what bracket supposed to hids

c. Mounting a Photon horizontally above the 280 rad on the bottom ? ***** to bleed but problems other than that ?

Reservoirs wont have pumps to deal with as the 35x2 will be mounted under you HD cage (lower one removed). I like the Aqualis and Photon cause they only 2 I know of not made of acrylic. But they do look like a PITA to do rigid tubing with with the inlet / outlet so close.

Alternate ideas welcome.

B. Availability - Newegg has gone into NSA mode on the Enthoo ... now says "sold out" and customer service isn't talking.

Are you hell bent to install a 280 rad in the bottom? Will you be willing to replace that with a 360? If yes then I have an idea that will work.

Since I already had the radiators that I used in the enthoo build I mounted my res the way I did. If I was to start from scratch, I would put a 360 monsta rad in the bottom, and a 480 rad in the top. With that I would have made my build look something like this.

Just make sure that you have the ports on the rear rad facing down, and not up. But wait till you get the case and the top rad installed before getting something else.

Cool good idea, think I'm going to bite the bullet on the xt45 420 now, just gives me that piece of mind if I ever change my mobo, and then I'll have everything there waiting for the case!

Investigating delidding and running a naked ivy precise Mount with my ek supremacy, has anyone here delidded?

Use the vise method for delidding, pretty safe compared to the blade method, I think its a great idea to run the chip naked, specially if its an Ivy or Haswell. Otherwise you will not get any major benefits from water cooling.

Thaanks... well thought out there.

I wouldn't say hell bent but I did want to hide the pump .... it's a nice pump but it aint perty

AutoCAD has lousy image export tools but DWG -> PDF -> JPG works well enuff. But this is what I was considering.
