Really you can put whatever rad you want down there as long as it fits, I've got a 280mm EK rad and I just used two case fan screws to keep it from moving. Just get the screws through whichever hole you can.

One thing to note, and something I've noticed from personal experience, is that even with 2 standard low-RPM 200mm fans up top, is that 2 fans can push more CFM than the top mesh will allow through. You can see this for yourself if you pull the front case bezel with both top fans running. You'll feel a significant amount of air coming through the little rectangular hole in the front of the top case bezel.


That's somewhere between wrong and not phrased well. It's misleading either way.

Even if you had only one small 80mm fan up top, you'd still feel some air exit that little hole.

The top mesh does restrict airflow somewhat. You're going to get backpressure behind the mesh, but it does not act like some kind of a fixed level limiting valve. (at least at flow rates we're working with).

The backpressure is to be expected. There is less cross sectional area of combined mesh holes than there is of swept area by the fan blades. Additionally, the small size of the mesh holes offers more resistance to airflow than the same area of larger holes.

Physics is physics . . . If you give the air another path out, (taking off the front panel) then you have to expect air to come out there. Air flow will divide by the number of paths, and quantify inversely by the resistance.

BUT,

With the more powerful fans, you're pushing more air up behind the mesh and consequently more pressure to push more air thru the mesh.

It is not a linear relationship, but more fan is going to translate to more air flow thru the mesh and also thru a top mounted rad which is a good thing for cooling.

If you have any websites that sell this case in Black with either cheap or free shipping please reply to this thread or send me a Private message with the link, thanks.
Since I haven't seen anyone reply to you (most likely not Australian) You can but the Phantom at most computer store across Aus. If you are in Victoria, I would be checking out Pc Case Gear. ( www.pccasegear.com) They sell it the cheapest in Aus @ $169 (I know really ***** compared to the US) If you are in another state just Google for Computer stores in *State*. Should get you a decent enough result, In Australia it will be $170+ on average Over seas might be $100 but people charge a tonne for shipping here.

Hey guys, just ordered my Phantom Full Tower biggrin.gif

I have one question though, I'm upgrading my PSU as well. Found a great deal on a PSU, but it has a 140mm fan instead of a 120mm and I saw that the vent on the Phantom is only 120.

Is it okay to use the PSU anyways, or do I need to have one with a 120mm fan?

I am curious to find out how you managed to drill the holes in the drive bay. My drilling machine is too big! Get a smaller one I guess? smile.gif

My ambition was to fit the hdd-bay there, though that did not happen yet ... as you probably can see.
