post #7231 of 15187
Just did a case swap from my previous antec 902 to a white nzxt phantom, and I am completely loving this case. Going from midtower to full tower is very advantageous in terms of space within the case. I did have to however, mount my h50 cpu cooler on the top of the case with the provided brackets because it would not fit properly on the rear exhaust fan with the 200mm side fan I wanted as well. Also ran into the issue of not having a proper mount for my card reader on the front fascia of the case but I did a little bit of modifying and used the conversion brackets from the antec 902 and installed it perfectly flush within this case. I will post pics tomorrow of my rig, overall thoroughly happy with this case.

I would be all over a Case Labs M8 if it didn't cost so much to ship to South Africa. (Literally would have cost double)

Just installed my XSPC Razor 580 block and a EX120 rad into my phantom! Loving the temps!!!
I'll post some pictures soon!

Sorry to bump this, but I am about to make a purchase and had a few quick questions.

Can the Rasa also mount at the top, or only the H100?

What are RAM Coolers?

The brackets mentioned for the top mount; do I need to attach them or are they built into the case?

As soon as I get these answered im going to order a radiator, a 200mm side fan, and the front fan, plus a blue ray drive.

Are you talking about a 240mm Rad or a 360 Rad?

If a 240mm you need to buy the Rasa Kit RS240 Kit and not the RX 240 Kit. You can easily mount it with the brackets that are included with the case. They are not built in to the Case, but are in the white box inside.

The rs XSPX rads fit in the top, but not the RX.

Depends on what exactly your asking about. There are ram heat sinks for water cooling. There are the fin looking things on ram as well which are called heat spreaders. Also there are fans systems that mount over the top of the ram and blow air into them. The last is probably the one you are asking about. Here is an example:
ram Cooler
Whether you need one is a matter of what kind of setup you are running and if you plan to overclock the crap out of your ram. Same as CPU though mostly. If you wont be going for extreme overclocks then it's not necessary.
The brackets come with the case but they are not the only way to mount a rad in the top of this case:
Give this a once over.

Will a 360mm fit at the top along with the fans?

The RS 360 does. Did you read that guide I linked? I will show you how your fan set up will likely be. 5 fans max without major modding in this case.
