So far so awesome!

Thanks faMine!
I'm really excited about it but there is still plenty to do before it's finished.

Once I get the rest of the hardware I'll start the build log.

I mannaged fitting my H100 in my case with almost no problems and its working with a push/pull system with my 200mm fans i did have some issues with my ram tho but after reading the blog it suggested that i bend my brackets that came with my case and that will give me enough clearance for my ram which it did. It rests on my ram but its only the fins that touch the plastic pars of the fans it doesn't put any preasure on it because it just barely touches it as you can see from my photo
450
The brackets will look like this after your done
450
The easiest way i found to mount it is to attach the brackets to the h100 first and then mount it to the case with the single screw bracket in the back first (you will need to bend it a little to align it up with the hole but not much) it will bend more when you bend the other one with a small flat head screw driver to push the front bracket into place. It fits quite nicely I would however suggest that you mount the heatsink to the motherboard first because screwing it in afterwards will be near impossible to make it tight and also plug your heatsink into your motherboard and the two h100 fans into the heatsink so it can contol them also you might have a power connecter back there too so that will need to be plugged in as well before you mount it( you can see mine off to the left its the gold/black braded cord).
Any way I hope this helps i did some digging to find this because i didnt want to loose my 200mm fans biggrin.gif

Thank you very much! To confirm, you are running the Corsair Vengeance in your Phantom with the H100 and the brackets bent? The blog noted his ram was only 2inches tall and the specs on the Vengeance notes that it's 3inches tall so I wanted to make sure I could bend the brackets far enough still for it to clear.

The stock 200mm fan is the FS model which has lower performing specs:
• Size: 200x200x30mm
• Connection type: 3pin and 4pin molex
• Current: .42A
• Input: 4.08W
Speed: 800 RPM +/-10%
• Air flow: 89.5 CFM
• Air Pressure: .98 mm H2O

Noise: 20 dBA
• Bearing: Rifle Bearing
• Life: 25,000 hours
* Also comes in a LED version: FS200LED
While the stock fan is quiet, I felt it was too weak for the side panel as an intake with it's low volume of airflow. I then bought the FN model to compare. The FN fan on high puts out MUCH more airflow then the stock FS fan, but it also makes a LOT of NOISE. So I returned the FN fan and bought a Cooler Master MegaFlow 200 LED fan. This fan performs in between the NZXT stock FS fan and the FN fan. It's nearly silent, but puts out more air than the stock FS fan. Also, I had to drill a few little holes on the side panel as the Cooler Master is slightly bigger (the NZXT fans are actually 180mm).
Cooler Master MegaFlow 200 specs:
• Model: R4-LUS-07AR-GP
• Dimension: 200 x 200 x 30 mm
Speed (R.P.M.): 700 RPM
• Air Flow (CFM): 110 CFM
• Air pressure (mmH2O): 0.595 mm H2O
• Noise Level: 19 dBA

• Bearing Type: Sleeve Bearing
• Fan Life Expectancy: 30,000 hrs
• Rated Voltage: 12 VDC
• Current (Ampere): 0.16 A (Max 0.28 A)
Other 200-250mm fans can be seen here for comparison. The Bitfenix Spectre Pro 230mm with it's 156.27 CFM at just 25db looks pretty intereting too. I may get it to try it out for fun wink.gif.

So if I am looking to push A LOT of air and since my Yate Loons are all like 30-40dBA.. What 200mm fan would fit in the side panel and be the best choice?
I can drill holes in plastic as long is it will fit after I drill it. I would prefer something that newegg sells since I got a gift card.

I guess I can say noise isnt a problem, looking for good rpm and cfm (but would like a nice noise to cfm ratio)

Can anyone help me pick out a fan?

Get one of the Yate Loons that fits. They don't sell it on Newegg but they are nice. Otherwise I suggest the Cooler Master fans.
