What board are you running?

I just found out, that you can't run a push/pull on a Rampage IV Extreme when you have high profile memory (Corsair Dominator) in the Phantom on the back 120.

Originally, I thought it was because I was using my Xigmatek XAF's but encountered the same problem with the stock fans.

Looks like I might have to get a new case if I want to do any sort of respectable overclocking. Shame.

Just thought I'd warn anyone so they don't get blindsided by this.

(Just did my new build last night, so specs/pics aren't updated yet.)

Do what I did with my Antec Kuhler 920

BTW, mind the mess, This is my current Computer with minor changes since. The only problem I have with this setup is the window has to pull back then pulls out, but, with the phantom I don't think you will have that trouble. I did shave the rear fan so I could pul out on the door and it pops free.

Just the one that came with the case.

Hey guys. So my friend and I are gonna be modding my Phantom and we have a lotta questions.

1) First of all we were wondering if we could get affordable sound reactive LEDs, not cathodes

2) We were gonna look into carbon fibre sheets. Where could we get our hands on this stuff? (Like k.3nny's)

3) For those who who spray painted the Phantom, do you guys have any suggestions for us?

4) What should we use to make a cutout in the side panel? We wanna make a custom window, we were thinking dremel. Any custom tips? Or other tools? How do we get a nice straight cut, please give us advice!

5) Where can we buy u-channel? Any suggestions for this?

6) I was gonna buy MDPC-X sleeving. Where are they based? I can't register or see their selection... I BUY the sleeving here right, this isn't a service? Cause I'd like to see what's available... considering his shop is always closed... Any alternatives? I want to sleeve my stuff myself, not have it sleeved in exchange for money

7) Is there any type of sleeving similar to the way MDPC-X is sleeved? I love how dense it is

8) Where should we buy heatshrink from?

9) We're not planning on buying a tool for removing the pins from the plastic, so what should we use? Or is there somewhere we can buy it for real cheap?

10) How do we know which kinda heatshrink to use?

Thanks for your time guys!

Also, does anyone have 8GB of RAM (2 x 4GB) DDR3 @ 1333MHz or higher that is BLUE? Looking for either Corsair Vengeance or G.Skill Ripjaws X (not Ripjaws, must be Ripjaws-X)

I have a RED G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB @ 1333MHz modules, would like to trade em for blue

and does the ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 have a place for a USB 3.0 header?

I swear someone said it didn't, but the specs say it does? I got the USB 3.0 header from NZXT sent to me

2) Never ordered any myself yet, but this should be what k3nny uses. There are cheaper alternatives, but I can almost guarantee it won't apply as nicely as this will. I've had cheaper carbon vinyl, and it's more metallic than vinyl, and doesn't wrap at all, only crinkles and looks like crap. Unless it's a flat surface. Even then, the texture isn't even comparable to the Di-noc.

4) A jigsaw with an 18tpi - 22tpi metal cutting blade works wonders for cutting. If you have good control, you can even get a nice radius in the corners with it. Or you can use it strictly for the straight edges, and use the dremel for any radius. If you only have a dremel, be prepared to buy quite a few cutting wheels. They wear down fairly quick. The reinforced ones will last longer, but are a lot more expensive.

5) I ordered my u-channel from here. Less than $1.00 a( not counting shipping, but if you order 10ft, it's still the same price as ordering from frozencpu+their shipping cost).

6) PM faMine, I know he just ordered from them, but he had to do it at 6am(California) because they have some weird hours lately due to sickness, or something. I believe they are based in Europe, but not sure exactly.

2) Try ebay or amazon, the stuff is called Vinyl Wrap Carbon Fiber. 3M makes it, but other companies make it too.
4) I would recommend a jigsaw. You'll use too many blades for the dremel.
6)MDPC-X is based in Germany, the owner of the shop is currently sick, I believe. The sleeving is great.
7) I think FTWPC sells the same kind of sleeving, but they too seem to have a bit of trouble.
8) MDPC-X or FTWPC.
9) Some people simply use a pair of papirclips. Should be quite painful though.
10) There's 2 kinds of heatshrink if you're buying from MDPC-X or FTWPC, Sata and ordinary.

Hope that helped smile.gif
