Roweyi7 I would have thought the exact same thing. However most of the reviews and Cosair recommends that you exhaust into the case. It goes against everything I know about air circulation. I'll post the instructions from Corsair later... I switched the fans to outake as you suggested and I havent seen a difference in temps underload or at idle. I suppose it would depend on how much heat is coming off your video cards then through the radiator which isnt exactly ideal. I would think that intake into the case would lower CPU temps but raise the overall temp of everything in the case? IMHO

Here's some crappy cell phone pics. All white LEDs! Just waiting on my 2 120mm for the lower panel, my white cable extensions, and the stuff I ordered to change out the fan controller, on/off switch and 200mm fan blue LEDs for whites.





Terrible phone pics make it look blue, but all the lights are white

Dont mind the giant black thing on the right, that's just my stupid phone clip I forgot to move....

It's bringing unnecessary, stupid amounts of heat into the case. End of

Anyone know of a good 5.25" Fan Mount/Bracket that itll go good in the Phantom? Im looking to add a higher intake fan, keeping the door open for a bit and see if it improves any temps.
