Thanks mate. I haven't notice that. But all of those gifts seem to be FZCPU things not Phanteks gift...Those who order directly from Phanteks got anything extra?

Cheers

I am going to try to order tomorrow so I can move my 3930K over to the Phanteks and start building my 4770K build with M6F into my Lian Li V2120.

Have you considered a 420 XT45 on top ? Gives lightly more cooling.

Last night I gave up on the front rad, moved the HD cage over to gain res room. More comfy now with 5 case fans (2 blowing in in front, 1 on the rear and two mounted on case sid epanel on right blowing out....... better balance.....

10 rad fans blowing in (5 sets in P/P)
2 case fans blowing in (front)
3 case fans blowing out (side and rear)

Unfortunately, two problems with a 420 rad. 1) I just bought 8 120mm Yate Loons and 2) The 420mm rad is not interchangeable with the slot at the bottom, in case I want to mount it down there. My gut is telling me to just get the Monsta, mount it at the bottom and get it over with! I just want to be able to have my fans cruise at 900-1000rpm and get an OC of 4.7 or 4.8 on my 3930K.

Just to chime in on the fan pwm board, I connected 6 ap-15's to it with the included 5 140mm phanteks fans, it works great. Have a 140mm to the fan 1 spot and it still ramps up the ap-15's when needed. Very happy about that

I think it's one of the better put together manuals I've ever seen. Especially for being multi-language.

I have found a couple mistakes in it though. For example, on pg 27 under the '140 mm form factor radiators' chart, the triple asterisks info meant for a 140 or 280 bottom radiator says "*** 125mm width max" which is wrong. That's the max width of a 360 or 480 rad in the bottom that has to be able to fit behind that panel. There is no such thing as a 125mm or less wide 140mm series radiator. There's ~145 mm max width of space for a 140 or 280 rad in the bottom.

I pointed that mistake out to Phanteks almost 2 months ago, but looks like it never got corrected.

Thank you for the corrections. We appreciate everyone's praises and help along the way. We are getting it fixed.

Will be following up w/ additional comments on our experiences ..... i.e. I had a molex connector installed backwards, some pins were mangled, and some scratches ..... but also some comments / suggestions about Enthoo II smile.gif

The thing most of us are waiting for though is when we can buy case accessories...... I need:

1. Additional Pump Skid ... Im using 35x2 but others also use 2 pumps and they won't fit..... a second skid appears it will mount fine on bottom of HD cage support thingie.

2. Fan control PCBs .... I'd like one for Rads and one for case fans .... which leaves me short one smile.gif



And for those of you awaiting price changes before getting GFX Cards / WBs .....

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-gtx-780-price-drop,24886.html

Nvidia GTX 780 Ti = $699

Nvidia GTX 780 = drops $150 from $649 to $499

Nvidia GTX 770 = drops $70 from $399 to 329

Also ..... free copy of Batman: Arkham Origins; Splinter Cell: Blacklist; Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, as well as a $100 Shield discount coupon

I only noticed it cause I was looking for case accessories

Those of us who pre-order had a promise of a gift along the case. What was it? Anyone got that gift? My case probably will take more 3 or 4 weeks to get here since is coming from Holland and I am in Brazil... sad-smiley-002.gif

There never was a 'promise' of anything extra along with the case from Phanteks for those of us who preordered. The closest thing to that was this post from Brian, the moderator on the Phanteks forums, saying that he was trying to suggest to his boss that they do something like that, which got some of our hopes up that they might, but there never was anything else about it. and now that the cases are here it's apparent that his boss didn't go for it.

I have the Channel1 fan plugged into CPU_OPT and .... Fan Speed set at default from 60% at 20C to 100% at 70C.

Highest I have seen the Phanteks fans at is 1126 rpm running OCCT ... that's at the point where OCCT shuts down (85C) . Im still on stock cooler and will be until WC parts arrive.

Ugh, I would have hated to see this case have a bunch of hot-swappable HDD bays. I cannot stand those things. I have two on my Cosmo 2 that are the only HDD bays that are going unused, and will stay that way except in the instance I want to grab data off of / put data onto a HDD from somewhere else, and even then that won't really be possible as I didn't have any SATA ports to spare on my mobo for either of them. I'm using all 10 ports already. I'd have to add a SATA hub PCI card for more.

Maybe one HDD bay with a backplane would have been ok/tolerable, but I don't like that they are basically wanting me take up SATA ports on my mobo for it when it's the last SATA thing I would ever use. I MUCH MUCH prefer regular HDD bays. I make up my own SATA power cables so the connectors are perfectly spaced all neat and tidy. I wish it was as easy to do custom-length SATA data cables but at least they do come in a variety of lengths.

I think we talking about two different things. Maybe I can explain better. This would reduce connections not increase them. I, not talking about the hot swap bay on the top of the DF-85....I'm talking about the plain old docking bays on the bottom that ya use once and don't touch again till ya replace something. You slide ya drive into the bay and no cables required. All the "neat and tidy" wiring is done by the case manufacturer.

1. Instead of having awkward PSU cables with inconveniently spaced SATA power connectors, or even nice fabricated ones with 3 connectors at one end and 20 pcs of heat shrink, you don't power the drives, you power the cage. Slide the HD in it docks with the connector. The three docks have their power wired invisibly to one single connector on the cage. Your custom SATA power cable is now a simple one with one connector on each end and no HS required at all.... can't use heatshrinkless method on pass thru connectors.

2. Instead of having three SATA data connectors 1.75" apart and three data cables all with different locations, you simply mirror on the side of the cage, the exact same setup ya have on ya MoBo. Instead of coming off the MoBo, bending left, bending right, twisting from vertical to Horizontal and then another bend to plug in, we just .... aw heck, easier to draw a pic smile.gif



Not sure where the taking up SATA ports on ya MoBo part came from ..... ya have a SATA device, ya plug in a cable, ya don't then ya don't.

We're talking about the exact same thing. For all the reasons you like a docking bay, I hate them. I MUCH prefer to plug my wires into each of my drives.
