Ok, so the case arrived here in Afghanistan a couple days ago and the case mods have begun. The grills have all been removed and painted to an Emerald Pearl Green. One of them unfortunately suffered from a little over-spray accident due to a rocket hitting outside my room just as I was spraying and of course in my rush to throw my body armor, grab my weapon and get outside to the bunker, the paint dried and I don't have the resources to clean it up. I think I'll paint the Lymphoma "HOPE" symbol right there and pray that it at least hides it. One of the downsides to trying to build this in the middle of a hot combat area LOL.
So anyway, Roweyi7, I noticed you are in the process of de-soldering your LEDs on your Fan Controller to solder in new ones. Figuring out which lead is + and which is - on the LED is easy. However, I am completely baffled when I look at the PCB trying to figure out which lead is + on the board itself. Another downside to being out here is that if I screw this up I have to order a new board and wait a month to get it.
Can you, or anyone else tell me which lead on the PCB is the + and which is the -? I know, it's prob staring me right in the face but in my defense, I am a little exhausted lately. Thanks for any help.

When you take out the original led check which leg is longer, the longer leg is positive. There should be a + - point on the board somewhere, ive not really check ill let you know. If you really want some help with this speak to Silomatic he's done this to his phantom.

Thanks Roweyi7. That's true for the new LEDs but the LEDs already on the board have been cut so no way to tell which one was longer to begin with.

I may just say screw it and slap them all in the same way and hope for the best. Then when the MB and PSU get here I can hook it up and pray that I got it right LOL

I have just completed building my Phantom and was after some advice. Here are my specs:

1055t at 3.5ghz
Asus Crosshair IV Formula
8gb HyperX 1600mhz
Powercolor 6970 running stock
Asetek 510lc
1200w Coolermaster Silent Pro

Here is a screenshot from HWMonitor:



Are these temperatures good or bad for idle?

Here is my fan setup:

Front - 120mm Silent Eagle SE - Intake
Side - 2x 120mm Silent Eagle SE - Intake
Rear - 2x 120mm Silent Eagle SE - Push/Pull - Exhaust
Top - Stock NZXT 200mm LED - exhaust

When running prime95 it can surpass late 50's.

Any suggestions to get it lower?

Thanks in advance.

Tom

11 more days.
Still concerned as to if the Noctua NH-U9B is gonna fit. Can anyone help me out with some info? If not to the exact product, does anyone know the amount of headroom available with the side 200mm fan installed?

Sketched out some ideas for my window. Will post them and maybe you guys can help me choose one = P

Not sure if you will be able to see it on your LED's, but with the aid of a magnifying glass you might be able to make out the insides of the LED. Hopefully, you will be able to see enough to see that the actual light emitting crystal sits in a "cup" or a support arrangement which in turn is connected to one lead of the LED. This lead is your negative (cathode) lead. The other lead ends inside the LED very close to this "cup" or support and is connected to the crystal by a ridiculously fine wire. This lead is your positive lead (Anode).

Hope that helps, good luck!
