Cool, Thanks, I appreciate it, I'm gonna try and swap it out ( time permitting ) tonight, i'll post some pics shortly after.
Ok I finally got all the stuff outta my antec 900 and into the phantom, it works like a champ. Without the additional front and side fans my CPU temps are hanging in around 40C - 47C ( good or bad?? ) I know that once I get the additional fans it will run much cooler. I havent tried to game without the fans in there, I dunno if I am gonna try either. Pictures to come soon. Thanks for all the help!

@Kung_Pow, don't repost, and I saw your edit before, don't be harsh to Chalderm. This is the Phantom thread so he can post about his case and his thoughts too. We do not have to only focus on your problem.

Anyway, I have seen the H70 mounted in the Phantom, but I am not sure if the 200mm side fan was able to be mounted. I would say if you go with the H70 buy the top fan and the 140 front fan and if necessary buy the 200mm side fan (try the top one on the side after you install the H70). Please be respectful...

Thank you for the answer ... and I am sorry I really did not mean any disrispect!

I will buy all of them so what should I set each of them on in combination with the h70 to create perfect air flow?
And where would it be optimal to mount the h70? Rear? optical drive stand?

Please give me some info on that
And sry again you are right we all love the phantom so I should let love flow^^

I dont think there is an anwser yet Kungpow, because it doenst seem like anyone has tried it yet with the H70 and optional fans.

Im going to mount my H70 internally on the drive bay when i get it, with 2x top exaust, 1 rear exaust, 1 front mounted intake, 1 bottom mounted intake (after removing the small tray) and the 2 side intakes. I figure thats a good place to start. Unfortuanly my build wont be complete until after Jan so i wont be able to give you temps, with luck soemone else will post fan placement with temps.

This sounds like the setup I will be going for... except I probably won't have the bottom mounted intake. I still think that having the front and sides intake and the top and rear exhaust will provide the overall best air flow, because heat rises.

I zip tied alot of stuff on that side but it's still a mess! Maybe it'll look better when I get stuff sleeved!

I personally think that mounting the h70 at the drive bay wouldn´t be so clever as it would suck in the heat the GPU disposes off.If you mount it so that it sucks in the air coming from the 140 mm fan the cold air supplied will be insufficient and the case +RAM will heat up dramatically before the exhaust air from the h70 reaches the top 200mm.

1.)I think mounting the h70 at the rear is the most clever way to preserve perfect airflow.
It will suck cold air from the outside of the case and the hot air coming out of it will be sucked in by the first 200 mm top fan. The second 200 mm fan will be intake and supply cold air to the case for GPU and RAM mostly.Side Panel fan also intake.
Bottom for the PSU.140 mm intake.
And the 2 x 120 mm intake.

2.)Alternative:
h70 draws cold air from the case that will be supplied by the first Top 200mm that will be turned around as intake and pushes it out of the rear. Second Top 200mm as exhaust and rest equivalent as in the first solution.

Thats what I think would be best in combinatin with the h70 what do you think people?
That config should provide perfect air flow give me your oppinions on modifications or changes.

Also, which directions are peoples fans facing? I am just curious since I kept all the stock ones as normal, and added a 140mm on front doing intake and a 200mm on top doing intake. The other 200mm one didn't fit on the side due to my heatsink. Should I face my fans other directions for the best cooling?
Renderfarm purposes. I need a lot of raw power. I think eventually I'll end up with 9 core i7 970 systems with 24GB of RAM each.

If GPU rendering becomes interesting I'll outfit all machines with dual GPU's.

Wow, now that is intense. Thats a lot of money for all the systems. I guess this is a side project then eh? Ha.

@Kung_Pow, yea that seems like it would be the best way. It is how the guy did it in the demonstration video above, no? Its best to fiddle with it though once you actually get the system. Sometimes some components just get in the way and have to be moved around.
