thats really hot for water cooling. I never get above 44c with my h50. something maybe wrong with yours.

Loving this thread,

Add me to the Phantom Red owners, pics coming shortly. My case seems much more messy inside than most peoples - this might just be that I've got more stuff in it? (5xHDDs, 3xODDs, 1xFDD, TV Card, NZXT USB Expansion)

id check your watercooling loop.. mines running at 29-34 degrees idle summer here in australia dam hot weather. and 43-48 on load @ 4.3ghz. check to see if your pump is working probaly ect.

Well, mine runs at about 35-36C when idle, haven`t try to load it to 100% and watch... Will try it in few days, after I sort another problem....

Just updated my BIOS to 0802 and my keyboard and mouse stopped working in Windows. In Bios they still work... Will try to downgrade BIOS to 0603...

Update: Nothing worked, came back to 0802. Because it looks like my Win7 64 USB Drivers corrupted somehow... So now I will try to reinstall/recover them. If I won`t find the way of doing it easily, I`ll just reinstall Windows... But I already Made me a Windows 7 64 Recovery Disk from another working comp. Will try it tomorrow

I have a Heatkiller 3.0 waterblock on an i7 950 (@ 4.0 GHz), 2-GTX 460s in SLI, and all the optional fans installed. Front and side fans are intake and the top and rear are exhaust. I have the Swiftech H20-220 rad mounted in the top too, and it doesn't restrict airflow out of the case at all if you are using both 200 mm fans up top. As long as the net exhaust cfm is greater than the net intake cfm, you will have positive airflow through the case and the rad:

Intake: 1x140mm (62.5 cfm) + 2x120mm (94.54 cfm) + 1x200mm (166 cfm) = 323.04 cfm

Exhaust: 2X200mm (332 cfm) + 1x120mm (47.27) = 379.27 cfm

Running a Prime 95 blend test or Intel Burn, my cpu never gets above 60 C. Idle temps are 32-36 C. Normal game-play, temps hover around 44-48 C-ish; although, my AS5 hasn't reached 200 hrs of burn-time yet, so those temps will get even better.

I wasn't able to mount the rad in the top with the 200mm fan installed.. it wouldn't fit..

Hi! I'm looking into doing my first build very early May and I had a quick question about the Phantom because this is easily my top choice for my case.

Is it first time build friendly? Or will the fan controls and that kind of stuff just outright confuse me? Thanks!

The Phantom is a perfect case to do your first build, tons of room. All the fan controller connections are labelled with pictures depicting the appropriate fans to connect where, and the starting cable management configuration on the back side of the case is awesome. The case is all tooless, all good. A lot of Phantom owners remove the secondary HDD cage to help with keeping the case uncluttered and to optimize alreay wicked airflow. I used the extra space for my pump.
