The best choice for phantom and 200mm side fan [xigmatek 200x200x20 or NZXT FN200RB 200x200x30] is the noctua NH-C 14.
Too expensive but a very vey good cpu cooler.

The only issue I would have with that cooler is on my board it would make it to where I can't use all 4 sticks of RAM, limiting me to 8GB. The measurements are way too wide at 140mmX152mm wide/long, though the height is right at only 114mm. Looks like a great cooler though.

Does anyone here not use the top fan controller but buys a nzxt fan controller instead? If so you got any pics.. looking and getting NZXT Phantom,NZXT Hale90 1000watt and some other nzxt stuff

Grrrr, word of warning: Soldering LEDS onto the fan controller is the biggest pain in the ass ever!

Sorry about the quality. I couldn't find the camera so I used my iPhone.





Anybody know how to remove/replace the LEDs on the ram cooler without it affecting the performance of the fans? I'm not a big fan of blue so I was going to remove them completely or swap for Red to go with the mobo and gpu.

Also does anybody know where I can purchase the Red sleeved cables in the UK?

Thanks in advance.

Here it is (whats left of it):






Was a real pain in the arse! Got one working, the when i soldered in the other the first one stopped working and it just carried on with other LED's, i just gave up in the end. Im going to contact NZXT and get a replacement controller because i have truly f'ed this one up! Only two of the LED's work on it.

What spec of LED do we need for modding the Phantom? Like voltage and size (3mm?), etc. Thanks.

The LED's need to be 3mm, dont need any resistors either.

Great job though Rowey, the white LEDs look great! Before you order a new board, try de-soldering them and clean all the old solder out, then put the new ones back in and see if it works. Did you figure out which way is positive and which is negative? If not, I'm getting ready to post the beginning to end process which will also show which way they go (Of course I am going of the design of the LED and the way the cup is so not 100%, but fairly certain it is right).
For others who are thinking of trying this, Rowey is not kidding about it being a huge pain. I've been building computers for about 15 years but have never had the "pleasure" of de-soldering LEDs from a control board and soldering new LEDs on.
Like I said I will post the pics I took and the tools I used so maybe it will help others in their quest to mod their cases.

Cool Thanks. I've got a bunch of white 3mm LEDs in storage but forgot the voltage they run at though, since I bought them almost 7 years ago, lol.
