More elegant than what I have propping up my cards in the phantom..

Between the RX240 rad on the bottom and the lower graphics card is a 5mm drill bit standing on end, and between the upper and lower graphics card is the 24 pin psu jumper plug wedged sideways that came with the XSPC Rasa kit.
I'm planning to make up some backplates in CAD to give them more rigidity and perhaps a side panel to bolt the backplates together.

Out of curiosity has anyone tried mounting two double thick Rads down the bottom of the case, pulling air through the left side panel mesh and pushing it out through the other side? I dont particularly have the money to do it myself at the moment, but I was thinking about the best possible water cooling setup you could fit in the phantom and came to the conclusion that mounting two rads down the bottom would cool pretty much anything.

So, anyone tried it?

It would work in theory, but I dont think thats its practical. its easier to add one to the bottom and one up top.

What if there's already one up top?

Also rather than blowing hot air from one into the other, how about if they both blew air out the sides and there was a 140mm fan at the front of the case blowing cool air into them as their intake.

To be honest I don't think there is enough room for that idea to be practical.

Also your moving hot air from one to another, which in turn heats up the water. If you want to add 2 more rads.. add one to the bottom and one out the back.

Today I received my Corsair H80 in the mail from Newegg (got it for 90 bucks free shipping, got here in 2 days). I installed the H80 no problem...except! I couldn't use the side 200mm fan! So, what I did, was take the existing 120mm fan, tie strapped it to the inside of the panel, then, took the 200mm fan and bolted that to the outside of the panel. I then took those filters that take up the spaces where there are no fans when you get the case stock, and tie strapped it to the side 200mm fan so that fingers don't get caught in it.

Idle temps are now at around 35, and load are just under 60. This thing is beast.
