Yes I meant 3. I don't really care what the case is so much as the dimensions. The phantom is huge inside. If the bitfenix cases were easier to get in usa then I might have gotten the collossus.

In order to fit my h2o setup in a case I need more room than the raven 3 can provide. Plus the raven 3 is ugly. If you like the raven isn't their a raven club thread?

Sorry the part about the go to the raven thread was directed at the other guy. I think the same response would be received going in the sandy bridge club telling them they are dumb and should have waited for bulldozer. It is rude.

yes they are on one side but its made to sucks air i tested it with some paper and it sucked it to the side. the only thing im afraid is the grill holes are too small and aren't letting to much air to be sucked

hi, i have a phantom case and i bought another nzxt 200 fan to put at the top.
the fan came with a splitter.

back switch > splitter > 2 top led fans (both stays on, led doesnt turn off)
back switch > splitter > 1 top led fan (works for either fan, led able to switch on and off)

i am not sure what im doing wrong. please help.

is there something wrong with the splitter or is the switch only for 1 fan? thanks

The large 3 pin 12v molex is the power input for the fan controller. It supports output via the small 3 pin fans only. Most fans come as small 3 pin with a adapter to make it a large 3 pin.

Ok, so everything is in the computer except for the SSD, 2nd GPU and 2nd BluRay Burner because they are currently MIA (Still think some bomb-maker in Pakistan has them LOL). Below are the pics but I have a pretty crappy camera so I did the best I could. At 4.9GHz I started having minor heat issues but stable (of course there are 7 hard drives generating heat but they have to stay because I store a lot of data). Got it up to 5.2GHz with the heat issues but stable and then 5.3GHz and it loaded windows but was having stability problems. It seems to work best at 4.8GHz so that is probably where it will stay until I have time to tweak it a little, but not too bad for air cooled. I'm very happy with the Sandy Bridge platform.

Looking like a computer. I was going for a polished aluminum look on the interior.


Everything in and wires run (waiting on SSD, 2nd GPU and 2nd BluRay Burner)


Still need to changed out the red LED on the power supply but everything else has been changed to green.

Yea well it's hard for me to decide on which case to buy. If i get the Raven 2 I know the reason will mainly be the cooling performance. But if the Raven 2 performance is good but not that far ahead of the other cases then I wouldn't get it cause it doesn't look as good as the Phantom or the Corsair 600T white.

Right now I don't know which one to get between RAven 2, 600T white, or Phantom. Which one would you recommended and why? Also what about the performance of the Phantom or 600T

I removed the front door off my phantom...it's not technically removable but I just snapped it off. The great thing is its magnetic so it will stay up even without the hinge. I did this so I could get a better view of the fan controller
