post #12891 of 15182
Hey everyone, just ordered myself one of these bad boys!

I'm running a Mid tower Xion Echo and it's just not doing it for me anymore. I have cables all over the place, not much space in the side to pull them through. Took a good day or two to decide on a full size tower and I decided that the Phantom was the one for me. Ordered myself a second 200mm nzxt fan, I'm excited to get this beast and put my parts in it thumb.gif

Running a Sabertooth 990fx Mobo with Radeon HD 7870 and FX 8120 CPU. 212 Evo cooler with two fans. Decided on a full size tower as I seem to be constantly upgrading my first gaming rig and I see a change to water cooling coming someday sooner or later. As well as a few more hard drives, maybe another graphics card. Who knows....

I was just on frozen and saw that. Thanks. I was going to buy a new pump housing but maybe I will just cut and tap mine.

Sorry not being rude but this is the Phantom full tower Forum but there is a Phantom 410 forum posted in the original post.
Good luck with your case.

How do you water coolers out there plug in your rad fans and where ?
I'm not quite sure but I think I might have to buy these (4 of them, 2 for each rad, 1 rad per fan controller "switch"). But that sucks, they cost 2.30€ each and they're 30cm long... that'd be a pain for cable management especially with 4 of those.

How would you clean a MCP355 pump ? I got mine second hand and have spent the day + last night letting different parts sit in soapy water to clean them (and take the previous owner's house's smell off) and rubbing them with a toothbrush. The rads were quite easy to clean but I can't clean the inside of the pump's top's threads nor those of the reservoir (I'll get some good photos of it up for darlene if she's still curious). I think I'll figure that out on my own but the real problem is as follows:

One of the 4 Supreme HF Full Copper's screws has it's head's inside worn out a bit and I can't figure how to unscrew it which is really a pain because although I'll be running DI water and whatever you guys tell me to add for a day or two to clean the thing it'd be way easier if I could just pre clean the water block otherwise it's just going to be a mess.
So yeah, how to unscrew a worn out screw ?

Cut a notch in the top of it and use a flathead screwdriver.

That's what I've been trying to do for over an hour now, so far I cut myself once with plexi (don't ask me ow I still can believe it myself), once with a screw driver and another time with a pair of scissors. All on the right hand XD. I've been trying to make a screwdriver less larger using chisels, my zippo, scissors and even a hammer. I've made it way less large but it's still too large and I'm too injured to keep going.

I also tried cutting a notch in the top of it and using a screwdriver as you just suggested but I really can't figure how to do it...

Any tips before I start messing my left hand up ?

Idk man but maybe just fill the block up with vinager and distilled water mix and let it sit for a while.
