post #14031 of 15204
Hello, first time post. My apologies if my issue has already been covered in this thread already, I searched a bit but couldn't find anything definite.

Basically I'm trying to find out if a Corsair H80i will fit in my Phantom with 200mm NZXT side and top fans installed. I jumped the gun a bit earlier this month when after a long search, I was able to find the fans in orange to match my orange and yellow themed build and bought 2 without thinking. Then I realised that the side fan wouldn't work with my CM 212 Evo. I've tried a bit of modding and maybe shaved about 4mm off the fan's profile but it's still not enough.

If the Corsair won't fit, are there any others that would and provide just as good cooling? In the end, I'm prepared to scrap the side fan if I have to,it's not like my rig is in danger melting without one but I would like to keep it if I can.

On the first page, there's a list of confirmed coolers that fit and don't fit. The H70 doesn't fit with the side fan installed, so I would assume the H80i wouldn't either.

The side fan won't fit with an H80, but it WILL fit with an H100 on the included brackets, or better yet, the Swiftech H220 coming out at the end of the month. If you'll read the page of this thread just behind your post, you'll see me go into detail on why the H220 is a much better 240mm Closed loop liquid cooler.

Hi folks, new owner of a NZXT Phantom Enthusiast Full Tower Case (Orange/Black).

I've purchased an additional 200mm fan as seen below:
http://www.specialtech.co.uk/spshop/customer/NZXT-200mm-11-Blade-Rifle-Bearing-Blue-LED-Fan--FS-200RB-BLED-pid-13724.html

The guy that put my system together seemed to have problems trying to install it so I thought I'd look for some advice and give it a go myself. I've only ever installed memory on a PC before so any advice would need to be in dummy format ha ha.

Looking at the specs the general position for he 200mm fans are at the top of the case?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi.

Tip: check how the other 200mm fan is connected in the case wink.gif Its not diffycult to do. Screw it in place and find the correct plug to plug it in to control the both top fans on top of your pc.

There should be allready 1 200mm fan in your case...

Does any one know if the Xigmatek Dark knight Night Hawk edition fits with the 200mm side fan?

As some has already stated this is quite easy to do. All you need to do is take the front of the case off and then the top of the case. Undo the screws for the filter and put the new fan in. Put the filter back on and put the rest of the case together. You then just need to plug the fan into the fan controller which is a circuit board mounted on the back on the motherboard plate(not sure what the actual name of it is) and you should be good to go.

I managed it! I suppose if you have even the slightest knowledge regarding system building this would have been a simple 2 min job.

I was having problems trying to fit the fan into the area. I ended up having to take off the included 200mm fan to get it in place. Once I screwed it in I was able to fix the included fan back on again. Whether I needed to do this I don't know but it worked.

The next problem was trying to unplug the 4 pin connection on the fan control. Sounds stupid.. I know but this thing was RIDICULOUSLY tight. I was scared I was going to rip the fan control right off. I thought I was missing something obvious but I wasn't. It just took crazy, unnecessary force. I had to use a knife to prize it open.

Anyway, job done and it looks great. Thanks!
