I've got a few to share. It was nice working with the case, one issue I had was that the monsoon acrylic tubes only come in 2 ft sections and it was just enough to get from bottom rad to top port of rez, lol. Led's are sweet, bought a few more strips for the interior.

Please please forgive the air cooled R9 Fury Sapphire Nitro. The card has a custom PCB so I can't find a water block. Figured I would wait for Vega to modify the loop with another water block.

Last pic is new comp next to old one. Old case is a Cooler Master HAF 932 advanced as a reference to show new case size

How do you like the case so far ? Is there anything that you wish Phanteks should do better ?

Really enjoying the new case, it is quite a beautiful. I'll post some more picks when I get the RGB strips installed inside around the glass panel, ordered 3 1m strands.

One thing that maybe could use improvement is the area they have in the back for pumps. I didn't use it because I wanted to mount the pumps up front for the looks, but with the power supply I have it would of been some interesting pipe bends and cable management. A few extra tapped holes to move the pumps around on the bottom would be nice.

The button for the RGB controller on front feels flimsy. Its just a plastic wheel, feels like you could break it if you were to forceful with it.

I'd love to know how quiet this case is once you have everything done smile.gif. What size rads are you running?

Running a Alphacool UT60 480 on the bottom and a UT60 360 on the front. I have 19 fans in the case. 5 are the Phanteks fans that came with the case, 4 are Corsair HD120 RGB Led series fans, and the last 10 are Nidec Servo GentleTyphoon. They are all PWM fans and I use the silent profile in the ASUS ROG bios.

With the Silent profile its about 34-37dB (i'm using sound meter that is an app i dl from google play store) coming from the computer, idle temps are 35 C (subtracting the 20 C offset as per AMD because bios displays 55 C). I'm sitting about 2.5-3 ft from the computer.

Here are some pics of the finished loop, its super quite and looks great. Can't wait to get a Vega graphics card to add to the loop although the sapphire nitro is extremely quiet!!

for some reason the Blue color looks a deep purple, lol.

Really nice build, congratulations! I'm looking at buying the same case, but was wondering if it would be possible to mount a 60mm rad (like you have in front and bottom) to top position in push pull configuration, while using an atx mobo?

Thank you, I am really liking this build.

Don't think you would be able to do a push/pull on top, manual says 65mm clearance to the top of the mobo, thats why I used the front and bottom. You can also fit a rad in the middle or back as well. Very versatile case.
