Alright peeps, how is everyone's Phantom builds getting on? not as up to date as I used to be.
post #12992 of 15187
i found you will get better temps if you make the top front fan an intake instead of exhaust, also at least for me, having a fan at the bottom was useless, no temp drops in anything, also if you put a fan behind the drive cage, it could help the graphic card temps.

as for the new phantom, im curious as to how it will turn out. i was really tempted to trade in my phantom for the switch 810, but i didn't feel like spending a bunch of money to fully upgrade my waterooling. Anyways i already modded the top of the phantom to fit the 360mm rads and i like it how it is atm, but it could use a few upgrades

need advice here
I'm planning to buy my phantom a cooler (he's just 2 months old)
I've already read reviews and only 2 choices left for me.
which do you think of this 2 cooler will be great for my phantom?

Just got a phantom myself, white and red. Will post pictures tomorrow when I get it all built.

Case kinda is begging for a Normandy theme,. imo

I own a havik 140 and its sweet. Not only does it match but its a great cooler. Does a great job and is totally silent. I do mean silent as mines running on a becnh and i can't hear a thing. You can't go wrong with the havik.

I knew that, but what I've read on the reviews, Noctua cools the PC 4-5 degrees cooler than the havik,

I'm planning on changing my stock 140mm and 120mm fans with Enermax Cluster 140/120mm white led fans which would fit my white phantom perfectly. Problem is that they have 4pin connectors which wont fit the phantoms fan controller. Will it work if I just modify the controller connectors (chop off one sideguard) so they would fit?

Sure will, or you could buy adapters. Just make sure you take the correct end off.
