Finally put my old system in the phantom case that arrived about a week ago. The side 120mm's aren't working, also I noticed 3 of the lights on the fan controller are off. Wondering if its a dud...anyways here's some pics, excuse the quality

Old Inspiron case and phantom with guts in it comparison:

Idle temps before (dell inspiron case) after (phantom + cleaned cpu heatsink since I had it taken apart):

OK, so got my new Phantom and looking to add/replace some fans.

Now, I've heard nothing but horror stories about non-NZXT fans regarding the 200mm, especially the Xigmateks.

Which sucks, because those were the ones I was looking at. Torn between either going with a full black with white LEDs, or doing their orange fans with the white LEDs. With either choice I will be replacing the top panel LED's as well. If I go the black route, they'll be white, if I go the orange fan route, they'll be orange.

So what I'm asking is, has anyone gotten those 200mm fans in that didn't dremel off the plastic? Or is there absolutely no way around that?

Also, red might possibly be an option, but as far as I know (correct me if I'm wrong please), is that NZXT doesn't sell their red LED 200mm fans separately.

i am also planning in just removing the led lights on the top 200 mm and just go with no lights from the fans and use separate led lights to have a greater effect int the lighting up top biggrin.gif

Finished up my order for the rest of my water cooling parts today....and the NZXT windowed side panel showed up today. She will be drowning in water by the end of the weekend!

Compressed air just isn't cutting it for me. Going to try bush it with soft brush when I get home today see if that works
