What fans do most people put in the 140 slot on the front of the case? As for the front top 200mm is it better to make that an intake and the back 200mm an exhaust?

Hey phelan, found this thread; http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/270327-29-will-kuhler-nzxt-phantom-case

If you read just the start of post 2 it talks about the phantom's rear mounting fan holes. My case personally has the circle rear mounting holes so it's first gen, meaning the H60 won't fit. Since the H80 is so similar do you still think it will fit or no?

In that case (pun intended), I would just use a drill or rotary tool to elongate the rear mounting holes 1/8" lower so the H80/Kuhler will fit. The holes don't have to look perfect either; just functional. The only difference on the newer cases is that the holes are longer, hanging lower, so the AIO liquid coolers will fit there.

So pretty much use the standard hole spots and just make them bigger. This is for both the H80 and the H60 right?

Oh and this got buried a while back: The tubing positioning (tubes coming out the bottom) doesn't affect cooling?

I think the answer lies somewhere between January 8th and January 11th....
