Right up the side where the HDD faces and 5.25" buckles are. There is about a one inch gap between the side and the HDD cages and 5.25" bays. I used three thermal probes in different positions to figure out where the heat was dispersing and try to correct for it.

edit: i might get an h70 hopefully that will drop some temps if not, i will put a block of ice in the case smile.gif

It looks better in that confiuration. Why it would go up in temps is beyond me because you are getting cleaner and cooler air now than you were before. I dropped a few degrees with the change. Could be that your thermal paste needs time to even out. As it heats up a few times it will spread out thinner and more consistent.

i got it because it was cheap like i said, and i plan to use the line method, I will try and see if my hyper212+ will rotate 90 degrees and report back, but the front bay fan is very useful imo

do you find the bay fan useful depontee?

Sad to say I have left the phantom club, my phantom is now on sale. Hopefully whoever buys it can join this club in my place. Got a raven 02-E instead, and to be honest I don't regret it.

just gave the cpu a stress test to see if turning the cooler 90 degrees helped. and it actually did surprisingly it lowered my temps about 10/9 degrees. before i was hitting about 69-70 degrees now 59-60.

in idel didn't seen much difirence but in 100% load there was a lot smile.gif so thanks DePontee +1

Feel a bit strange posting on here about it lol;
There's a few things, firstly it looks a lot better than it appears in the pictures, looks really good quality and just looks like a more professional rig. Secondly it's more silent, this is probably attributed to the fact it has a window rather than mesh. Thirdly the airflow is actually better, idle and load temps dropped for me, especially on the graphics card, those 3 fans at the bottom really move a lot of air, even on low settings.
The down sides are it feels a bit more difficult to setup due to the motherboard rotation (although this is actually a great idea). And the psu mounting is slightly odd.
Sorry to say I don't think I'll look back phantom club.

Well I compare with minimum settings on both sets of fans since I couldn't bare the noise anywhere near maximum
