Hey, just thought I'd point out that the black and white Phantoms are $106.24 at Newegg with the promo code NZXTOCT1.

Hey guys

im just about to place and order for my new rig but just wanted to ask a couple of questions first.

I know this has been asked 100 million times but i would just like to see if anyone has had any experience with fitting the following in the case WITHOUT removing the 200mm fans on top.

Phantom White

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD7-B3 Motherboard
Corsair CMT8GX3M2A1866C9 8GB (2x4GB) Dominator GT
Corsair Hydro Series H100 CPU Cooler

After coutless hours researching this i have came to the conclusion that it all depends on weather the rad + fans of the H100 will clear the memory.

I know its a long shot but has anyone had any experience with that particular hardware? Or similar which can give me advice on if this will fit

As i said i dont want to remove the 200mm fan on top. Also i dont have any local retailers which have these parts in stock so i cant go into store and physical check before purchasing

Thanks in advance

the case comes with, hmm how do I put it, an adapter (?) so that your can install a 240 rad and still have 2 200mm fans up there. So yeah you can install the h100 and keep your fans up there. You just have to find the adapter it comes with the case. As for if it will clear the memory, no doubt.

Thanks for the advice. I have seen that it comes with the adapter and i love the way it works. Its just that the corsair Dominator has quite a large heatsink and sticks out quite a bit.

Does anyone know what sort of clearance from the motherboard to where the rad fans hang down too/come out too ?

Thanks in advance

Check out the pic in my signature. I think you may have issues with the RAM clearance. If you use the brackets + rad + fans, the assembly will be quite low and will definitely be above where the RAM is... there is like ~1cm clearance for me and I'm using low-profile RAM. So if you use RAM with a high heatsink I believe it will interfere

++REP!

Thanks allot for the advice

Could i bother you just 1 more time and ask if you could give me the measurement of your ram height.

Also the ~1cm clearance that you have i assume that is with the ram installed? so there is about 1cm from the top of your ram to the rad fans.

If you could be so kind to give me the height of your ram module i can compare it to the ram i want and get a definite answer to my question before i purchase.

Again thanks so much for the advice, this is the only place ive been able to get any solid answers!

Btw your rig looks amazing!!!

EDIT: Also just curious to know is there any spare room between the 200mm fans and the rad if i was to shorten the brackets so that the rad + fans didnt hang down as low? Or i can make new brackets to bring it closer to the 200mm fans? Or is there just no room. Also based on your setup, if there was room would it be enough to raise the rad so that it would not overhang the ram modules?
