Maybe you can try bending them from some steel, like metal angles for wood construction etc... I dunno.
I can photo/measure mine [brackets of course] for you.
Of course it would be best if you somehow get NZXT to send you the original ones.

Thanks for the reply, lol I'm not to sure how good i'll be at bending metal, but I definitely need to maybe find an alternative... or something.

Hey guys, I'm about to get into water cooling here soon, and I just wanted to ask if my idea for the setup is okay: What I plan to do is put a 120 rad with a 120mm fan exhaust to cool the CPU, and when I add cooling for the GPU, I'll add a 140 rad with a 140mm fan intake. Would that be good? Or should I just get a big rad to put up top with the 2 x 200mm exhaust?
post #14844 of 15204
If you have the classic phantom you can mount a 240 up top but i would just put push/pull static pressure fans on it. You also dont strictly need the brackets to mount a rad in there, just use the center bracing structure on the top that the 200mm fans mount to.
post #14845 of 15204
Okay, I'll look into that. Thank you

Those anybody know what stock fans does the nzxt phantom 530 has.

I want to compute the CFM of each fan in my case so I would know if my case has a positive pressure or negative pressure.

I'm 90% sure these

The only way to be certain is to see yourself, you should be able to read the back label without taking them off.
Regarding calculations, I suppose there's many other unaccounted aspects at play, the front 200mm fan intake is slightly obstructed by plastic at top right corner, and has to suck through the metal mesh which probably reduces its performance, and then through HDDs...
And, their [front 200mm and rear 140mm] RPMs at given same current will be different, and RPM/CFM ratios too...
I think, more or less, front 200mm and rear 140mm are somewhat equal each other, given the lower max RPM and the obstructions for the front one.

So it is hard to have a positive pressure case in an NZXT phantom 530

I am planning to put

Push:
- Top 2 x 200mm cooler master megaflow 110 cfm
- back 140 nzxt FN 62.5 cfm
Total CFM = 282.5 cfm

Pull:
- Front 200mm NZXT FZ 103 cfm
- Bottom 2 x 120mm Corsair SP120 62.74 cfm
- side 140mm nzxt FN 62.5 cfm
Total CFM = 290.98

Neutral:
-Pivot 140mm NZXT FX 98.3 cfm

Is that fan configuration positive or negative? and is this configuration OK?

I posted this on reddit, wanted to check the same here as I found the QNIX Owner's Club super helpful last time I had an issue.

So it's my first time. I ordered this case about a week ago from Ebuyer. The box came a little battered, looked like it had been opened, but I thought nothing of it. I had a cursory look at the case but really having no idea what I was looking at yet I thought "Better leave it till build time".

Getting to "build time" has taken a little longer than I expected so I took a better look today. Again there were a few things (sharp edges of twisted metal etc) that looked a little off but I took those to be normal, perhaps they still are, but this really caught my eye. It's one of the top 2 fans and there's this sort of little mass that looks and feels a little like blu tac though I think it's metal, and it seems to have something that looks like a staple in it.

Now to my completely virgin eye this seems like a repair job. Especially with the battered pre-opened box. I am 99% sure there were no suggestions of refurbishment etc on the listing but I can't double check because, surprise surprise, Ebuyer has taken the listing down. I'm going to give them a ring tomorrow but I thought I'd double check with you guys, especially if there's a Phantom owner out there already.

Is my inexperience showing and I'm overreacting?

Thanks!
