I think the best solution for me now is i can somehow mount the rad up top so the side fan is clear and the back top is clear to mount the 200mm.
I know you are wanting to use the side fan so it wouldnt work regardless but you can mount an H70 on the back and still use the back top 200mm fan.

Well, it seemed impossible to find answers anywhere else, so I'm coming here to join my brothers! First of all, the obligatory Phantom picture!

img_8310.jpg

Yeah, sorry the picture is horrible, but this was the only picture I had where it showed the most stuff in my case.

If I could get some help from you guys, it'd be much appreciated. First of all, I'm kind of lookin for Fans. The stock fans don't seem to push very hard, so I think I might want a new 120mm for the back since my CM Hyper 212+ is pushing towards the back. I wanted to make it push up but it was hitting my stupid Ripjaws. So, any recommendations on 120mm, 140mm, and 200mm Fans? I see Xigmatek seems popular, that a good choice?

Second, is there a way to hook up that button, which I just managed to discover today, on the back of my case to switch on and off more LEDs and maybe some CCLs as well?

And third of all, why do I suck so much at cable management? My cables are like rock hard and for some reason I have a million of them! Haha.

There's a fancier picture for you guys. Thanks for the help!

As for the door thingy, you'd be surprised what NZXT will send you out if you ask. They're sending me a new lower mesh panel for free.

What's the best way to contact NZXT? Will i have to have my invoice information, and i doubt i can just say " Well i tried to do some painting on the black parts on the front bezzle, is there anyway you can send me a new door " lol wouldn't know what to say.

I am a huge fan of Gelid Wing fans, they are expensive but they are the best in performance, quality, and quiet. I dont think you can hook the button up to any other fans either, which is sad. And finally the best way to get them is to bend them back and forth to loosen them up then pull them through the back most of the way with enough slack to not break the connection and just make sure that you tie it in the back with them being tight and it should clean up your nest in the bottom. I hope that helped.

Hello, and welcome to the club! thumb.gif

If you're looking for pure performance/silence check out scythe gentle typhoon fans. They are butt ugly, but they are very effective and quiet. Aquatuning.com currently has 1850 RPM scythes in stock last I checked. Xigmateks are nice if you want a little flash in your system as well as good performance. Yate loons are very nice too, and much cheaper then most other alternatives.

As for the switch in the back being used to toggle the case lights, I've heard rumblings of people looking in to this, but havent heard of it being done, sorry. it might be entirely possible but my wiring skills are barely passable.

Cant say I know much about repositioning the hyper 212 to blow upwards. I've seen it done though with similar coolers I believe.

To the cable management issue. I too had some very unruly wiring. my advice is ZIP TIES!!!! Buy a 100 pack for a buck and you will love them. I got tired of seeing cables in front of my PSU so I built a little metal contraption to cover that area up.

Use the holes Luke! Also, with that extra mobo 4 pin cable route it around over the top of the mobo tray instead of allll the way across the mobo tongue.gif
