Ok so you're saying your headphone jack is super tight? To be honest it may be bad. See if it doesn't loosen up over time? Is there an audio issue as well or it's just hard to put in and take out?

I wouldn't do another yellow build. I don't think it would impress your sponsors too much if you just did the same thing in a different case. wink.gif

This is the best idea so far! thumb.gif

I'm so bored with all these normal standard computer colors. I know they come out with them because they sell, but when you look at them all the time they just kinda blend together.

As far as all blue goes I don't think that anyone has done a Phantom in solid blue, but there have been plenty of other blue cases.

So IMO I think go as unique as you can Omen without making it ugly.

Orange and black Omen, or hot pink and black. Or even green and black.

WOW thanks num1son, after I asked what colour Mybadomen was thinking on I was google searching custom painted cars, saw a awesome copper coloured one and thought that it would look great so that's why I said it thumb.gif

nzxt_phantom_topfan.jpg 68k .jpg file pic13.jpg 79k .jpg file HELP!!! Want to replace phantom mesh HELP!!!
I'll start by saying that I am not happy with the Phantom's mesh. The holes on the mesh are too small and restrict air flow. The Phantom's 410 mesh has much bigger holes similar to my previous Antec 900 case. The air flow was considerably more than what the Phantom is.

Right now, I have an Intel Q9550 overclocked at 3.4GHz, GTX 560Ti DS in SLI and the heat that these two cards produce can not be expelled from the case with the existing mesh and ten fans (3-200mm, 5-120mm, 1-90mm, 1-80mm). I have to remove the Phantom's top cover so both 200mm fans on the top can have better air flow. I know this because I have monitored the temperature with HW monitor.

I would like to know if there is anyone that knows of a replacement mesh that I can replace the current mesh used on this Phantom's case.

I have attached two pictures of the Phantom and the Phantom 410. I would like to find a mesh similar to the Phantom's 410 to replace on mine.

First off, welcome to OCN! Hope you can stick around on this thread for quite a while, we always welcome new Phantom owners!

Are you running the two 200mm fans as exhaust on the Phantom or as intake? I have always suggested that the 200mm fans be run as intake fans. The reason for this, is that they can produce a positive air pressure within the case which is not only better for cooling, but it allows for a cleaner case. One thing with the 140 fans on the 410 is that they have a higher amount of pressure given off which helps them disperse air in an air column rather than dispersing throughout the case. Not sure if that helps!

But for the mesh, have you tried looking at places like Home Depot, Lowes or Ace for meshes? Not sure what they have, but that's where I'd start.

Hey ! thanks for the quick reply.. and thanks for the warm welcome! wink.gif

about the cooling, they cool just fine, thing is that i have noticed the these mesh panels have too small of a hole for some good air flow. they really cut air flow i would say 50%. the phantom 410 has the bigger kind that i would just love to have, I did go to home depot and lowes i don't have since i live in Puerto Rico they haven't made a store here yet. Oh! and they are running as exhaust fans.

I've been having this case for about a year and a half now and i totally love it but this mesh would be my only draw back. I've been looking high and low with no luck and this is whats holding me back from airbrushing my case tell i find this. It doesn't have to be no particular pattern just bigger than the one it currently brings

I've found this website to have a good reference for what kind of mesh you should get: http://www.mcnichols.com/viewer.htm

Not sure if this will help you for your buying situation or not however. I don't believe NZXT offers different mesh.
