My shipping took about a week from Ontario to California. Daz even emailed me directly to make sure my shipping address was correct because it looked funky.

The kit is absolutely gorgeous. The D5 in combination with the bay res top is amazing. I can't wait to get it started.

The only negative is the cheap Thermochill tubing. Replaced it with some Primochill.

I'll link an overview of the kit once I get a chance thumb.gif
post #8352 of 15204

I am thinking about getting a different case for my computer and I'm torn between this case and the Tempest 410 Elite (for price reasons). From what I hear from the people on the Tempest side, the Phantom has a wierd airflow to it, which is the main reason why I no longer want this Guardian case. Also, I will be slowly building a watercooled system, but starting with my Antec Kuhler 920 as a base for it.

 

So my real questions are:

1) how much longer is the Phantom? taller than the Guardian. Is there much room between the top of the motherboard and the inside top of the case? Will a 49MM deep radiator fit between the top plastic cover and the roof of the chassis? is there a pattern for 120MM fans to screw into in the top?

2) how is the airflow? Are high temps around the Northbridge a major problem in this case? Will I see much different temps than my Guardian? (for reference, at idle my GPU is around 35C, my NB is around 40C, My CPU is 20C, and my radiator attached to to the rear fan is around 30C)

 

Thanx in advance, hope to get some pretty solid replies.

I would prefer it if the phantom 410's could stay in this club, the antec 300/900 and 1200 are all in the same club as well as all the coolermaster HafX series, both clubs have cases that vary quite a lot in dimension and spec but seem to run pretty good.

As long as people specify whether it is a phantom 410 or a phantom they are talking about then I don't see how there could be any confusion unless people are too lazy to read the posts properly.

My baby phantom would be lonely without its big brothers looking out for it frown.gif

Off to the machine shop all day today guys.I will miss ya all. But i am so excited .I get to play with all the equipment for 2 days.I feel like a kin with a pocket full of change heading to a candy store smile.gif . I cant wait to get there. He is going to have to give me a refresher though i haven't used a Bridgeport or lathe in years.But its pretty simple once he spends an hour or so refreshing me.The guy Is also an electronic wiz so my ears are going to be wide open and learn as much as i possibly can from him in the 2 days.
The place i am going has nothing to do with Pc modding he actually builds stuff for Mid evil shows .Old weapons Costumes etc . And works Soldering Chips ina Semiconductor plant i used to work in.So its like a Modders dream this guys shop.

This guy in the past has donated to me just being nice.A sandblasting cabinet ,Complete Soldering station with tons of stuff with the kit.He noticed me working with extremely cheap tools one day and just started showing up with new to me but used equipment to help with modding.But this is the first time ever he invited me to spend time in the shop to do whatever i wanted.He said make yourself at home and go crazy using anything i wanted. So this is going to be better then going to Disneyland to me.

So what i decided to do with the time there is to make as many tools as i can to assist in modding.Will post a bunch of Photos of my time there in a different thread so you guys can see.This whole shop is at the guys house.Omg i would die to own that equipment.

Anyway everyone have a Great day and keep on Modding and "Num1son" your build is looking great. I just checked out the updates.

And i also seen tons of people getting new Water cooling kits. WOOT guys Grats!

Take Care and all have a nice Day! (I will probably bring my laptop just to pop in but wont have much time to chat till tonight)

Oh yeah and please VOTE for MOTM if you haven't yet. http://www.overclock.net/t/1184204/january-2012-mod-of-the-month-contest-vote-now

This is a common misconception about multiple pumps. Putting two or more pumps in series will not increase your flow rate or pressure and as a result your cooling. The only thing having two pumps in the same loop does is give you redundancy, if one fails the other is unlikely to. If you want to improve your flow rate/pressure b/c of restriction then you need to have two separate loops. Typically one for gpu's and one for cpu. Other than that for a single loop you just have to buy a better stronger pump.

Having said all that look at my loop. I have two of the more restrictive rads, another rad, 2 gpu blocks, and a cpu block. All this and still plenty of head from my single 655.

Yeah that would be about the only thing to add, but I'm not a fan of the look of externally mounted rads. I like the packaged factory look.

Yes it is, typing on it now. It's awesome and I'm having no problems with it. thumb.gif

I guess your right, 2 pumps is still a nice fail safe in case of anything.
