Hey guys id love some advice! Can anyone confirm that you can see the 120mm rad fans on a top mounted corsair h100i (no 200mm) with the NZXT side window. I am currently deciding what fans to get, as the stock H100i fans are simply too loud for me tongue.gif . I love the look of corsairs sp120's and would pick up a pair, but first I want to make sure you can see them with the side window with ease. If you can't see the rad fans with the window then I will likely go with a more silent fan like the gentle typhoons and paint them black. Also if you guys know any good silent 120mm fans Id love if you could throw me some names. thumb.gif
Thanks

Are you doing a push pull config, push, or pull? If you want to see the fans from the side window I can only assume you're doing some sort of config involving push and exhausting out the top. That correct? also where is your computer in relation to where people will be viewing it. For example, my computer is actually above my monitors for easy access and viewing pleasures. but some people have their computers on their desk level with their monitor or on the floor. this info would help. thumb.gif

I am running a strictly push config at the moment (exhausting out the top), sorry I forgot to mention it...how stupid of me. Also, my computer is sitting on the ground for the time being, as it is simply to large to fit on my small desk biggrin.gif I am not concerned with how the fans look if you can't EASILY see them from a straight on view, if one needs to get their face close to my window and look up to see the fans I really don't care what they look like along as they are black.

Hello,

I was wondering in which Phantom case all of this would fit:
AMD FX 8350 Black Edition Processor
AMD R9 290X Sapphire Vapor X Tri X GPU
Crosshair V Formula Z mobo
16 GB corsair vengeance RAM
Seasonic 750W PSU
1 HDD and 2 SSD's
Swiftech H240-X liquid cooler

I would take the 820 but it seems like overkill for me, it's too big really

Pretty much any phantom case should fit these items, the only special things I would double check before buying is
  1. radiator compatibility (most if not all phantoms should support dual 120, or dual 140)
  2. Check length of 8 pin cpu connector to reach from bottom of case to the top of motherboard.

I was thinking about getting the NZXT Phantom until someone on a different forum pointed out many flaws.

If we are talking about the old NZXT Phantom then its terrible.
I had one and i hated it many reasons for that but some of those are
Cheap and nasty feeling and looking plastic that sketch super easy and is impossible to keep clean both from dust and fingerprints.
The front and top fans are NZXT own 192mm fans so you cant use ANY fans other then their fans and you cant use anything other then 120mm if you want to change the fans.
The 192mm fans does not have very high static so almost no air goes in through the front there should have been an option to mount dual 120mm or 140mm fans but nope only a single 120mm can be mounted.
The overall quality of the case is not all that great as i broke the door off just by opening it and that happend less then half a year after i bought it.
The case is not very well thought out as you cant use the side fan if you have a tall heatsink the case should have been just 3mm wider and there would have been no problem.
The rear top fan would hit the tubes on any 120mm/140mm AIO cooler if you mount it on the back and those fans should also have been just 3mm higher and the problem whould have been fixed.
You cant remove the HDD cages they are fixed which is a pain in the butt.
There are no places to mount SSD behind the motherboard so you need to either use ductape to mount them or use a whole HDD cage slot.

Does anyone know if these problems were fixed in the newer versions of the Phantom?


Irrelevant, I chose 530 over regular Phantom.

Hey all! I am currently selling my gaming rig. You can go to my account if you would like to see some pictures and a full list of the parts and things that I have done to it. I am looking to get about $1,500 for it. I will not ship and I live in the South East side of Wisconsin. If you are interested or have any other questions, send me a PM.

Like a bad penny I've turned up again...

I want to move into water cooling, and I want something decent that I can take from build to build and run video cards on etc...

Here's my upgrade list:

i3-4370
ASRock Fatal1ty Z97 Killer ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
G.Skill Trident X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2800 Memory
Asus Radeon R9 280 3GB DirectCU II Video Card

I would like to run a 240mm up top and a 120mm in back, but I've never done anything with water cooling before. Anyone have a suggestion?
