[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 90

post #891 of 19394
So far ..... better than any case I have ever used......most grommet locations perfect. Only one that wasn't .... of course...was the 24 pin which was dead smack between 2 of them .

Question .... what's with the non standard Molex connections ?

a. One labeled 12V input doesn't have the customary socket shape all squares and won't plug into anything



b. LED one is wrong gender.




My little nitpicks

1. Few nicks in the finish on the panel with the Phanteks logo on it (the one ya see thru window)

2. Side Bracket was not square top screw holes didn't line up ..... off about 2 screw hole diameters vertically

3. Manual is poor ..... like every other case manual.

4. Quality of Molex connectors is poor .... several were misaligned .... two popped metal plugs outta connector when joining. Other I had to take apart and repair. Pin clips were bent over backwards. Ends wire split and had jagged edges that I had to grind down.

5. SSD brackets should be moved forward .... If ya don't want SSD's going right into MoBo area, ya gotta make a real tight turn.


Major Setback ..... M6F has no DVI port, only DP and HDMI .... of course I discovered this at 10 pm just when all the stores are closing. frown.gif How am I supposed to sleep now ?

Lol, looks like that molex is backwards. Should be flipped, pins go in square side. 2 middle are ground I believe, far right if looking at it with flat side down is +12 (other is +5v).
post #893 of 19394
Your right on the 12 volt .... Didn't even think to look at the other side .... they have green wire on the outside and yellow on the inside next to it.... all others wired same.

They prolly rushed it cause of all the complainers on OCN smile.gif ..... (I resemble that remark)

Still confused on the 1st on though .... back side of 2nd pic looks like 1st pic....can't plug into either side.

Can someone confirm they didn't whack this all up ?

Coming out of Fan PCB I have:

Top
Green -> Yellow on PSU
Yellow -> Black on PSU
Blank
Blank

Coming out of 12V input
As above

That's the molex I was talking about, the pins inside you can slide out and flip the plastic around. That connector is to power the LED's in the case. The pins go in the square side, and the other side should be a female molex connection.

Almost done for a week till new lines and another radiator shows up.

I just don't know if 2 or 3 uv cathodes will have much effect in all that space (and 'uv' LEDs aren't actually uv at all).

I've always hated white lighting in pc cases, but maybe the Enthoo is the case that's well designed enough that plain white lighting actually accentuates the design? I'll give that some consideration.

Actually, Juggalo (OCN water cooling editor) always recommends UV LED lighting by Oznium (they're primarily marketed for undercarriage/grill/under-hood UV lighting for vehicles) and they seem to work pretty good. Look pretty 'UV' to me AFAICT. I grabbed a 38" strip from them to go in my Enthoo Primo. Here's juggalo's build:

edit:

One thing though. The Enthoo Primo manual says the molex LED connection supports "<1A" (up to 1 Amp), and @ 358 mA the 38" UV strip from Oznium is less than half that, but the manual also says "max 50 LEDs per connection". which confuses me. The 38" strip from Oznium has a lot more than 50 LEDs. I was counting them and when I got to 50 I wasn't but about half way through the strip. I'm definitely planning on using it anyway, as I assume the max Amps is what really matters. No?

Correct. My led strip had way more than 50 leds and it's been working fine.

Starting to warm up even more to this case. I really wasn't prepared for the massive size of it. Came from a HAF XB -> Corsair 540 -> this so it's really my first full tower. The included fans are excellent... I have all 5 to the pwm splitter and it works just like it should. During full load the fans are about as loud as others and they move some good air. I would say the sp120's are still much louder at full blast.

Ambient temps have dropped here quite a bit, but it's interesting how the 780 lightning temps are so much lower too. I suppose that should be correct though, I have 16 fans in the case.

780 load temps at stock voltage are 60-61C. This is on air. Still waiting on EK's block...

I saw a facebook post about 2 weeks ago about it that said it would be out in a week. An EK rep said in the EK forum should be soon, they have been machined/packaged but they are slowed down because of the amd cards being released.
