[Official] Case PHANTEKS Case Club for lovers & owners - Page 98

post #971 of 18700
The only thing I get really anal about making sure is aligned is how the wheels on my cars look when parked. They all are at the same angel.

But getting back to the solution:

Air flow for SSDs should not be a concern, but if you are, then you can use the spot behind the motherboard.


Talking about my build, hopefully it will be drained and taken apart in the next week. Going to redo the tube that intakes the water to the CPU block. Its gonna be fun working on 4 builds at the same time frown.gif

OK, I have 14 fans I am going to use. 6 case fans and 8 rad fans. I know the limit is supposed to be 11 fans, but I wonder can I get away with the 14? If I have to limit the fans I would just prefer to put the rad fans on the PWM hub and put the case fans on a fan controller. Is anyone else using this many fans and if so, how are you controlling them?

Where'd ya fit the 6th case fan ? I have:

2 on right side
2 on front
1 in rear

Like you, I been going back and forth, back and forth.


But I'm thinking of having the Six Eyes send one signal to the PCB to control the 10 rad fans.

1 - Monitor Rad 1 Inlet Temp
2 - Monitor Rad 2 Outlet temp
3 - Monitor Rad 1 Inlet Temp
4 - Monitor Rad 2 Outlet temp ..... Control all 10 Rad fans thru PCB
5 - Monitor Case Temp ..... Control case fans (need another PCB)
6 - Monitor Ambient Air

I also have the 3 OPT fan headers on the MoBo (M6F) that I can run off temp sensors. So if Phanteks doesn't come up with PCBs soon I have an option

OPT_1 = 2 Front Fans
OPT_2 = 2 Side Fans
OPT_3 = 1 Rear Fan

On a side note, wanted to ask what kinda rpms ya getting outta ya Phanteks fans.... running AIDA 64 on a stock speed, stock cooler 4770k I was averaging low - mid 80s w/ instantaneous peaks at 90 and highest rpm I saw was 1126 ...... have 5 more coming and concerned that they won't cut the proverbial mustard.

BTW, still no answer from Phanteks on availability of accessories

I have the 2 140mm fans in front, 1 in the back and 3 up top. I ordered the Monsta and I will put that at the bottom of the case along with the 8 fans for that. I haven't fired up the case yet so I don't know how loud the Phanteks fans are yet, but I am sure I will probably want to control them in some fashion. I can't wait for Phanteks to offer the accessories so I guess I have to take the control of the fans into my own hands.

Is there a chance I can run the 14 fans off the one PWM board?

I'm sitting in the dining room (DR table is my "workbench" .... plan is if I take long enuff to finish my build, the in-laws can't come over for dinner ). The fans are less than 12" from my head and I can't hear a thing..... I hear the heat coming outta the vents, I hear the fridge in the kitchen, I hear bubbles in the fish tank in the next room .... but no fan noise at 1179 rpm on the stock intel cooler and 742 on the Phanteks. I have to get ear within 6" to hear them. Switching to Turbo Mode ... the speed ups to 780 I was able to get it to 1259 rpm and I could hear fan noise .... but my eyes were focused on the 89C CPU temp under IDA 64 and I didnt wanna get away from the scree smile.gif

Again I could hear the noise but it was in no way annoying. I should have a Rad report later today ... 45mm and 60mms arriving whenever UPS man gets here.

maybe I'll stack em ....

UPDATE:

Here's some pics of the AlphaCoool UT60-280 in the top of the Enthoo. Rad makes it but the pull fans look like they won't....the Xt45 fits better




EDIT:

Have the XT45-420 in and running a credit card along it I'd say I clear the M6F HS by about 6 mm .... add 2 mm for the fans being less wide than the rad and Id have 8mm clearance if I used a UT60 ..... however, getting the XT45 in was a tilt and twist exercise..... it does not fit in thru the front 5,25 bays because of the lip that they out on the sides to support whatever ya put in there. Ya would have to bend or trim them with a UT60-420 to get it in.

Wow.....That will be a stack of rads at the bottom of course? I guess you got that UT60 a while back because the last timeI checked the 480mm UT60 was not due until 12/8 at Aquatuning. Glad I didn't wait for it. Good to know the stock fans aren't too loud. I still got an Akasa fan controller just in case, cause I hate a loud setup and with 14 fans......even if they were all Gentle Typhoon AP15's, there would still be a racket.

Do you have the top fans on the inside or outside of the chassis? If you put them on top of the chassis, under the mesh top of course, then the rad + bottom fan (=85mm) should fit even with high profile ram or vrm cooler.

Or are you using 140mm rad/fans, and don't have the 58mm offset? I can't quite tell from the picture.

I was joking about stacking ..... see EDIT above.

As for stock..... Frozen delivered in 48 hours. The Reeven came in too.

Yes fans are on top. See my edit above. For whatever reason, as you can see in the pics.... once in place the UT60 looks a lot closer to the heat sink then the 140 does. However, while I don't think you will have a problem with the UT60-480 ..... the UT60-420 ya gonna have to wrestle with to get in. As I said above, the XT45-420 was a bear to get in..... after I did it once, I couldn't figure out the 2nd time how I managed it the 1st time. I basically angled it in, then rotated it vertically to bring up to the top and then rotated it sideways .... to horizontal rubbing hard on the inside of the 5.25" bays as it rotated. Maybe would be easier w/o MoBo installed but I really didn't have any issues there.

The 5.25" drive bays are 144mm wide.... then subtract 3mm x 2 for the lips that 5.25" devices slide in on and ya at 138.... the UT60 is about 143.5 wide.

Oh one more thing .....lose the lower grommet if ya have a 140mm wise Rad on the bottom.
