Well I have two different fans attached and it turns out that they spin opposite directions from where they are mounted to the motor... so what I thought was the same direction wasnt.

There was nearly a 10 degree difference. My room has been hot so it should go down even further once the weather cools off.

@num1son: Thanks for your advice re. the larger Phillips screwdriver, found a larger one and all ten screws were out in 30 seconds.
As for PCI blocks, it turns out it's only two that are stuck. Since I've got spare thumbscrews I'll probably just find a way of getting the screws off and replace them if necessary.

Edit: All sorted now, not sure what happened to the screws, probably my fault, but thanks everyone for your help. Also, when the members list is updated, put me down in the Phantom Black column.

Glad to help. You could try to pull and unscrew with a pair of needle-nose pliers? Or pushing up from the bottom with a flathead screw driver?

Ah! I had the exact same problem (got my phantom a few days ago). Every single PCI screw was ridiculously tight. I used a nearly perfect fitting screwdriver and had extreme problems. I ended up just using a larger screwdriver at an angle and stripped them to get them out. It was extremely difficult.


If I take out both the HDD cages, can they be put back in? Looking to put an RX240 there if it will fit.

I tried pushing from underneath, no dice, but the pliers were the solution.

@holynorth: The small HDD cage can be removed and put back in, as it's just screws. The larger one however is riveted in. It can be removed but I imagine putting it back in would be an enormous effort, if at all possible. I have seen modifications in this forum where people removed both trays and then attached the smaller one above their radiator, so I expect that's possible.

Moving the smaller one sounds perfect. Do you happen to have a link to someone who did this?

Annoyingly I can't remember, I'll try and find it tomorrow. Hopefully one of the regulars (read Phantom gurus) will remember who did this before then.

I removed the large cage and the small one. The small one as he said is just screws, and the large one is riveted in place. You have to drill out the rivets but it is really easy. Those who reattach the smaller cage where the large one used to be either use tape or drill holes into the drive bay and use the mounts on the bottom of the small one to attach it to the bottom of the cage. Overall it is very simple.

Where did you put your HDD? I see where others are putting the SSD. Is the HDD in the 5.75 bay?
