I see, I might have some few Ideas how to mount it on top,

I have planned some mods, a pretty bulky one,
If it doesn't fit, I'll probably go for airnews39's Pedestal

Thanks kgtuning!
will surely keep in mind about 8pins and ram!

I was curious if anyone has mounted a radiator on the bottom of the case in the two different orientations and seen if there is a temperature difference. It seems like there would be hardly any air pulled through the bottom, but I could be wrong. I currently have a radiator passing through the case but will be playing with my loop soon. Just trying to see what Ideas I should be open to. Thanks for the info All!

There is not a lot of air flow under it, but there is some if anything you should have it set up so it pushes air through the radiator down and out the bottom. Id recommend getting feet on it or raising it up some how. Also perhaps like a shroud to go between the fans and the bottom of the case?
And I've been thinking of cutting that spot out where the fans sit and make some sort of grill to increase airflow.
I cant really think of any other way of mounting a 240 rad on the bottom other than laying it down. Unless you put it on its side, in that case I think you'd have better cooling. That's at least my thinking on it, I hope it helps!

If I were to mount a radiator at the bottom of the case I would cut the factory grill out... and make custom feet. I thought about this many times but decided not to and just use the one radiator at the top of the case. I think another idea would be to modify the 5.25 bays so you could mount the 240 in the front. The airflow would be so much better and probably yield much better temps.

Hello guys! I'm new here biggrin.gif

I've been using the NZXT Phantom RED for about 2 years now and recently, one of the default fans is rattling every time the system is on.
When my system is shut-downed, the rattling disappears even while the fans are still spinning (due to leftover energy). <- I find this weird.

I suspect it is the top fan (according to my ears) and its annoying the hell out of me ):

What can I do to solve this?

Welcome to OCN!
If it is a fan you can take apart then you can grease it but replacing it maybe the best route. The only reason it doesn't rattle when its slowing down is just that, it is slowing down and not being driven by the motor.

Thank you! So the rattling is from the motor? ;_; I thought it was the fan blades lol

Which fan do you recommend getting in this case?

well the rattling is the bearing but the motor and fan are connected so the sound can be deceiving. as far as a replacement... which fan is it? a 120mm or the 200mm in the top of the case? If its a 200 just stick with an NZXT one but if it's a 120... there are so many choices.
