It was open for the pictures. Normally it's closed. My system is very quiet and the SA is not loud at all...and that's running the fans at 100% with no PWM control. I'm not a silent computing purist but pretty close. thumb.gif

Does anyone know if it is possible to install phobya 200 extreme radiator in this case without modding? I was planning on using a bitfenix spectre pro 200mm and using the following setup:

case>fan>radiator

Would really appreciate some input on the matter, thanks.
post #3873 of 4826
Are you planning on putting the radiator in the front or in the roof? I know it will fit without issue in the front (you'll have to move the harddrive cages though). Hope this helped thumb.gif

yes in the front. I see people having to mod the front though?

Most people here have cut out the front grill to reduce noise and increase airflow. Other than that, moving the HDD cage is not really a mod.

EDIT: I think it will fit without modding, I have seen 200mm rads in the front, though correct me if I am wrong guys.

I mean moding the fan holes.

I heard on Tiny Tom Logans Watercooling guide for the 600t that you can just bolt the phobya 200 in the front? But from what I have seen from build logs most people have to end up modding the fan holes.

Love the carbon vinyl, looks really nice!

I have a question about the case power button. I assumed the power button would be a normal springy type button that would be easy to push when I turn the computer on. The button on my case is kinda hard to push, and there is very little spring to it. Is this normal? If there is indeed something wrong with the power button, can just that part be changed? It really isnt a big deal, as the machine turns on and runs fine, but its just kinda annoying.
post #3880 of 4826
nope, it's normal like that. I actually prefer it this way as I think it gives the case a more "premium" feel.
