240mm radiator (30mm thick) in push or pull in the top, X-flow radiators may block the rear exhaust fan.
120mm radiator in push/pull (up to 80mm thick), rear exhaust, bottom intake, top front intake, push in either top slot. Bottom intake may interfere with a long PSU or its wires.
Removing the bottom HDD Cage (four rivets) opens up the front of the case to a 240mm (possibly an 80mm in push/pull) rad, with the ports at the bottom (may be a tight fit) or with the ports up top, requiring a cut into the bottom 5.25" bays. The bottom front fan mount can be cut off to allow for a 240mm radiator in the bottom instead.
The top of the case can be cut to fit a 280mm radiator (with some cutting, 30mm rad in push or pull) or even a 360mm radiator in push or pull. The 360 would likely run into the fan controller/front IO
Push or Pull only:
You must mount the radiator on one side of the plate and the fans on the other.
If you use normal 120 or 140 mm fans inside the case, the rad on top of the case, and fans that are <16mm thick, you can do push pull with no modding and have plenty of room to spare in the phantom 410
1.Remove the top panel of the case and take off the top portion of the case (25 phillips screws estimate). This will allow you to freely sandwich the rad / top panel / fans together without running into the motherboard.
2.After removing the top, the fan controller + pwr/reset button wires wont allow you to completely take off the top, so I placed the case on it's side and let the top rest perpendicular to the case.
3.Place the radiator on the inside of the top peice with the fill port facing down in the center of the case. And the 90 degree swivel elbows facing the inside rear of the case. (Went this direction because my mobo would have gotten in the way of the fill port. Some people might get away the other way depending on their mobo) (TIP: I placed the waterblock in the 5.25" bay with the tubes going through the top fan hole so you dont have the block dangling while installing the rad)
4.Mount the fans on the top as pull (Swiftech logo facing up)
5. Place the top back into the frame of the case and screw in (make sure all your fan control + pwr button cables go into their proper notch)
6.Mount the backplate for the waterblock to mobo
7.Mount the waterblock (TIP: Because the length of the tube was too damn long I gave them a good bend before mounting the block)

Warning about E-ATX motherboards
The Phantom 410 was not designed for E-ATX boards but they will fit. E-ATX motherboards are wider so the motherboard may cover your grommets which may add to cable management issues.
We would also like to address some concerns this change may bring regarding our previously released products:
1. Phantom 820 already features the required fan spacing specifications for the NZXT Kraken X60.
2. Switch 810 has already begun production with revised top steel panels which allows for both 15mm and 20mm spacing.
3. Phantom 410 and Tempest 410 will happily accept the Kraken X40; however they will not be able to natively support the Kraken X60 due to their inherent hole spacing.
At the moment, NZXT’s Switch 810 will be the only case receiving revised top steel panels for native Kraken X60 support. If you already own a Switch 810 and wish to purchase an NZXT Kraken X60, you may contact NZXT Support for a free replacement. The revised steel panels utilize screws for its installation, allowing users to easily replace the top steel panel with a standard Phillips head screwdriver.
Below is a how to guide on installing the Kraken X60 into the phantom 410 with some minor modifications, Please refer to this and do not clog the thread with questions re-installing this unit. Thanks to Kdman for the efforts!
When applying for the club you can either post directly into the thread or PM me. Please make sure you include images into both types of applications as this will help me sort who needs to go where. If there is any concerns or questions please feel free to PM me!
