Hopefully I'll have one of these kits in the near future.
Thanks for the help!
The rs360 should be sufficient, the main difference between the two is the thickness. rs360 is thin, so you need medium to high speed fan cool it, while the rx360 is thicker, so you can get by using low speed fans, which will be more quiet. Either one will be fine though.
Are you planning on trying to mount the radiator internally, or externally? If external, I would say go with the RX360. Internal you may be limited on space, and perhaps the RS360 is the better route to take.
There are a ton of Phantom mods on OCN, and other forums, so perhaps you can find somebody that has all ready mounted a RX360 in theirs, but the ones I've seen all had thin radiators. I don't think you would have enough room for a RX360, plus fans, in the top of the phantom without having something sticking out the top, probably the radiator.
Here's a thread with info specific to watercooling the NZXT Phantom with these kits: http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...-rx-rs240.htmlEdited by anubis1127 - 11/7/11 at 8:14am
