Phantom 820 res mount

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello guys I have installed xspc photon d5 ax360 kit on NZXT Phantom 820 but the reservoir is too big and I cant find a place to mount it without modding the case. I will soon add a gpu on the loop and a 240mm rad on the botton so I was thinking of changing my res either to this http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_p... or to a bay reservoir. Does anyone knows how I will be able to mount the ek res on phantom 820 without modding? Or a bay res would be better?




Thanks!!

mount it to the outside of the case and run your tubes inside?

Edit: A res is a res. It doesn't matter if it's a bay or tube or block. As long as it does it's purpose which is making sure your pump doesn't run dry you should be fine. That being said, it seems like a waste to just put it aside and buy a bay res but that's up to you. I would either mod the case or mount it outside.

Well i was planning to sell this res anyway because filling it isnt very easy and I wanted something smaller. I would also like to keep it inside the case! thanks for your answer!

'stzy' try mounting it lower that will solve the filling issue, if it's a variable speed pump you might be able to adjust the speed through the bottom grill?

Problem is I will add a 240mm rad on bottom as i stated so it's not gonna fit. I searched EK website and there seem to be some uni-holders and staff like that but I am not very sure whether there is place for them or not.
