Which has proven better air cooling for gaming case... - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Well then most of you guys might hate me then for the last few months ive had my Raven 2 sitting collecting dust waiting for a new build......due to me just buying the NZXT Phantom.....one thing i dont like is dust and in just a few months there is tonnes of dust already where the Raven would not........maybe ill go back to the Raven 2 and perhaps upgrade the fans.......

the difference is that i like the options i have with the NZXT Phantom as to where i can place the H50 with my 6870CF i cant put the rad in the inside of the optical drive area which i think is the best place for it.......dammit decisions decisions....

I never get any dust in my FT02. There are 3 huge filters beneath the 3 huge fans.

I was talking about my NZXT Phantom. Sorry for misunderstanding.

I've had my phantom for about a month and have not seen even a little dust inside. How do you have your fans/controller set up? I keep my fans turned -way- down and have them closer to a neutral-pressure situation. Also, added the 140mm to the front.

OP: The raven has the best airflow of the bunch, then the phantom. I wouldn't worry about the rest
