post #13671 of 15204
I am thinking about getting the Phantom, but just have 1 major question. Is there a lot of room behind the mobo tray for cable routing? Could anyone take a picture of what it looks like behind the mobo tray. i have a haf 912 right now and I need more room behind the tray for cable management and am considering the phantom. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Finally water-cooled my Phantom.. hardware is a little outdated but still runs about 120 FPS on Black Ops II on some max settings. I have the Heatkiller 3.0 CPU block on my 940 Black edition at 4.0 ghz. I looked around for a full cover GPU block for my Radeon 6870 and couldn't find any so I contacted Performance-PCS and asked if they had any 6870 full cover blocks, the next day I check and the Heatkiller block was in stock... I highly recommend them. I just got the 90gb Kensington HyperX 3K SSD and so far I love it, way better than the 5400 rpm 120 gb HDD I was using ^.^ anyways before I bore you to death here's the pis smile.gif

Looks good so far, suggest you add another 240/120/140 rad for optimal cooling tho. If you were cooling only the cpu the 240 alone would've been fine.

Thanks!^.^ I'm probably going to do a 120/140 in the front of the case, but I really need to update my mobo, ram, and cpu.

I've had 3 Phantoms and I've molested all of them. This last one rather brutally soon... i guess you could call me a Phantom molestor tongue.gif.

I've seen the Corsair H80 fit into this case but most of the picture I've seen are in the front, is a rear installation possible? I honestly don't care for the fan controller fan functionality in the back, as long as I can fit the H80 in the back with 2x 200mm fans on the top.. anyone got pictures or know if it fits? I don't see why.. 120mm slot.

It fits as long as you mount it with the tubes coming out the bottom. I had an H80 with push/pull with both 200 mm fans installed at one time. Fan controlled would be unaffected and still work fine. If all the leads on it are full, you can splice one in to make it run another fan, plug the extra fan onto the motherboard, or just run a 3 pin to molex adapter to run it (though the latter will always run the fan full speed).

Okay, perfect, I assume the same applies to the H60? Guess there's no harm mounting the tubes down.

Good news!! Finally moving away from the old setup, the motherboard (a770de+), CPU(Phenom II 940 black edition) and memory (DDR2 Patriot 800mhz) I'm going to order the following tommorow:

Processor - Intel Core i7 920 CPU (2.67GHz)

Motherboard - EVGA X58

Memory - G.Skill 12GB DDR3 1600 RAM

I paid $220 for all three together, please leave comments/suggestions smile.gif
