post #1891 of 15204
Now i have a question of my own about the top 200mm fan that they include with the Phantom. Its not very easy to describe but it seems like the fan blades isnt put on straight on the motor wich causes it to "wobble" or whatever i should call it. Could this affect the performance and do you think i could get a new replacement fan? Who do i contact about this? The reseller or NZXT?

Here's mine: 207004_10150157569875956_562400955_6478877_8070722_n.jpg?t=1302306196

Unfortunately because of the Hyper 212+ I won't be able to put one of those huge side fans in it :/

This should work with the hyper 212+ aswell since the heigth of the heatsink is 159mm

Only NZXTs 200mm fan will fit in the phantom case. You can however get other fans and mod them to fit. Im not sure but the CM 200mm fans wich are available with red or blue led might fit but only with 2 screws as you can se in this picture. This wouldnt be a problem (atleast for me) because i doubt it will fall of with only 2 screws anyway. As for the side panel, make sure that your heatsink isnt to high for a 200x200mm fan. I got a NH-D14 and i had to use a special fan that is only 20mm high (most fans are 30mm high) to make it fit and i dont have a single mm to spare. You got about 180mm clearance in the case and the NH-D14 is 160mm high (+ a 20mm high fan) wich makes it 180mm so i can't use the dustfilter.
So if you got a heatsink that isnt too big, ide recomend getting the original 200mm NZXT fans. A second top fan will ofc improve your airflow, its up to you to decide if its needed or not. A side fan is very useful imo since it helps cooling both the graphic card and the cpu.

I was actually able to wedge my Xigmatek 200mm in the top fan slot where the stock 200mm comes without using any screws. If fits very snugly and it's perfectly flush. It doesnt rattle or wiggle or anything. Really surprised me o.0

Call NZXT and they'll replace it without question for free.
Just tell them it has a faulty bearing. thumb.gif

EDIT:
I still haven't posted a picture of mine. lol
I probably won't until summer since it needs to be repainted.

Any recommendations for the paint brand to use for the exterior of the case?
