post #7081 of 15204
i have read somewhere in the tread that the two side fans aren't doing much of a good thing as in directing airflow, so if i remove one of them or both and put them on the base as intake. i think they will do a better job in bottom rather than in the side. what do you suggest?

I think the only reason they are on the side. Is to cool the harddrives. So would not expect a temp drop anywhere even if you move them to buttom

There's a fan controller in the middle if you can't see it.

I've been thinking of something a little similar to your rad box.

I'm contemplating building a pedestal with 2 x 480 rads in it.

Ignore some of the cosmetic errors & the fact that there are 2 x 360 rads in there for now. (Just getting an idea of size)

What do you guys think?

this is my idea
the phantom with your pedestal is too high
post #7086 of 15204
My case will fit almost perfectly under my desk with the pedestal as it adds another 140mm to the total height and I have about 150-155mm from the top of my case to the underside of the desk.

I like the idea of the pedestal thing but you should make it an extension of the original case. By that I mean keep the front pannel's shape and put a mesh bellow the phantom's mesh (as if it was part of the case).

I'm not sure wether or not having 2 480s in such a small place is a good idea. I'm no expert but I see how that could cause heating problems (don't think rads actually overheat / burn but I mean it wouldn't cool as well as it could) unless you plan to have the 480s seperated by a row of 4 120mm fans with the same rows on each side a bit like a Big Mc except the fans would be the bread (buns ?) and the steaks would be the 480 rads.

That should work fine (you'll need an expert's advice or atleast a better advice than a begginer's advice smile.gif ).



Btw, why would anyone want to hide their rig under their desk :'( ? I'd rather have it either on top of it on my right or left (I can understand some might not have the space though but it's kind of a shame to hide your rig).

Honestly it sounds like you may just want to go with the H100. If not you need to really start researching what water cooling is. Because at this point it seems like your not really sure. Not being a jerk just giving you a heads up. The rasa kit is the most basic full watercooling setup. It will consist of
Cpu water block (this takes the place of your hyper 212
Radiator
Pump
Reservoir
Tubing

The rasa kit has the pump and res combined so that makes it easier to set up. Have a look at Num1son's guide to get an idea what you are getting into.
http://www.overclock.net/t/1089921/nzxt-phantom-xspc-rasa-rx-rs240-guide

The h100 is just plug and play, its a cpu block connected to the radiator. Its one piece. You don't have to fill the water or any of that. Are you doing a lot of overclocking? Just curios what your looking to gain from watercooling, you may be fine with your current setup.

I like the pedestal setup better. Looks cleaner.

What are you going to make it out of.

Planning to make it out of wood and paint it (I don't really have the tools to make it from steel or anything tongue.gif )

But the image was made in Google SketchUp, its like a free CAD type software, and there are a few Phantoms that people have uploaded to it.
