Hopefully I will be making room for a RAD to put there...
I just took the bay and strapped it in the optical bay until I can find a way to mount it bellow.

You just inspired me tongue.gif I think I'm going to remove the large HDD cage and mount the small one inside the 5.25" drive bays. My DVD drive is at the top so there shouldn't be a problem screwing holes at the bottom and mounting it.

BTW, what's the best size/type of bit to use for drilling out the rivets? And also what size to drill holes to mount the small HDD bay?

My DVD drive is at the bottom but the screws are so small it didn't get in the way when putting it back in.

I would just get a drill bit that is a little smaller than the actual rivet. I think I posted the size I used to drill the holes, I used a 1/8th bit then I just used some extra screws that the case came with and they screwed in pretty tight.

Thread Starter 
maybe a noob question, but why would someone do a reversed atx case mod? is there a benefit?
post #10086 of 15201
Hi!

I am now the proud owner of a Black Phantom. I am not getting into modding it yet as this is my first build. I am ordering the rest of the parts in a day or two when I figure out the answer to my question.

This is the mobo I am getting: Link

It only seem's to have 3 fan connectors on the board, but I went with all 7 fans for my case. Not being able to find out exactly how the can controller works, I am unsure how I will be able to plug 7 fans into a 3 connector board. I know the Phantom fan controller has 5 sliders and 2 of those sliders control 2 fans, So I am set there, but will I need a splitter for the board? Do they make those? If so will it reduce my expected RPM?

Thank you so much, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this btw.

Bryon

Grats on purchase. You don't hook any of your case fans to the board. All 7 fans have their own plug that come from the controller. The fan controller is what powers the fans with a 4 pin power connection.

Fan Controller can run at 20W per channel, so you won't see a power loss over the channel to cause reduced speed

Yes 3Pin Fan splitters or Y-Cables are widely available

I have 3 channels that are running 2 fans

I have
2 front
2 top
1 bottom
1 rear
2 CPU
1 PSU
3 GFX

total of 12 fans
