I currently own a CM Storm Sniper, but I'm very drawn to the Phantom cases.

Maybe next year I'll buy myself one, as they are very nice looking cases.

its my first wc redface.gif
thanks

Looks like a really nice kit, just that reservoir is tiny.

I know what I have is not the greatest thing ever, but in my research I couldn't find anything better for the money. Cooler Masters Aquagate Max is what I installed about 2 months ago. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. Looks great and functions amazing. I'm only cooling my CPU right now, but I'm going to eventually get a waterblock for my new 7950 and pipe that into the system.

XNine i sent you a PM about some L brackets, don't know if you've read it or not, i don't mind having to pay for my foolishness to loose my stuff redface.gif

But i really want to buy that Corsair 100Hi and mount it in the top :-)

Sadly the H60 is not enough to keep pulling my new i7 3930K

I've got my H100 mounted at the top of my Phantom with no L brackets so you should be fine.

However, I should be getting my custom loop in soon so if you're interested in a less than a month old H100 LMK! thumb.gif

How do you have yours mounted in the top ? , because i took the top of mine and looked at the holes, dont look like the H100i would fit in there with the radiator, i was only thinking of keep using my 200mm fans in the top of the case for a push pull config, hence the L bracket.

If you use the middle screw holes you can mount the H100 directly in the middle of the 200mm holes. Then just mount your fans to the bottom of the rad.

That's how I did it. Fits perfectly and not only that but it still leaves me clearance to use the 8pin on my Rampage IV Formula.

yea i got the same motherboard as you, talking with xnine over private messages now also though.

didn't think of that solution though

I was able to mount my H100 below, well the rad and 2x nzxt from the side, and I basically secured it by placing the 2x120mm vents on top for a push pull config and those screws hold the rad in place.

The real downside to this, though, is that the top of the Phantom, made from plastic, barely fits and it's somewhat forced as on the side there's like half a centimeter that can be seen.

PPS: what vents did you guys use, and secondly, do you really think mounting 2x200mm on top might be a good solution for push pull?

And what vents are best to use for H100 to Push (good static pressure, low DBM - silent-ish?

Tbh, i am going to remove the one 200mm i have in the top and just let the radiator sit there with 4x120mm fans in push pull on the corsair h100i , that i have ordered.

http://www.aquatuning.co.uk/product_info.php/info/p12374_Cougar-Vortex-PWM-CF-V12HP--120x120x25mm-.html

with these mounted, i wish there was better 140mm fans, then i'd return my h100i and get NZXT's X60 kraken instead
