Water cooling build in the NZXT Phantom Full-Tower questions.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello! I recently joined and I have a few questions about my NZXT Phantom and water cooling compatibility. The case says it has spots to build a water cooling kit, but so far I'm stumped. So here is my question, what is the best discrete water cooling build for this case without having to modify or add radiators/fans to the outside of the case? I would like to mount one on the top of the case, but it would be a serious tight squeeze, if at all possible. I'm guessing I can't use the stock NZXT 200mm fans because they have the weird spaced screw holes (from what people have said). It would also be a squeeze in my opinion to mount a 120mm radiator on the back of the case, but once again, I've never done this. I am looking for closed system loops I can buy, or building my own. I am willing to spend some money, but please try to keep it lower, I'm not about to buy some $1000 gold plated radiator because it looks cool. wink.gif Thanks a lot in advance, I know I am asking a lot! thumb.gif

Any AIO cooler will fit in the case with the adapter provided. YOu can still use the top 200mm fans and have a set of fans on the rad.
When \I did it the ram was pretty close but you will have to make the measurements for yourself as every motherboard is different.

So, upon further review, I can see that there appears to be adapters on the fans for a single/dual 200mm radiator. Like I said, this if my first time ever and I don't know much about water cooling. Also, I still gotta measure and such, I'm a little worried about needing to redo plenty of cable management when I finally make this switch. Along with what I've said before, I hate to ask so much of everyone, but are you able to recommend a good dual or single 200mm radiator? tongue.gif
