Nice this is going to be interesting
/ follow !
Will be watching this closely!!
Was thinking of the same positioning with the rads like you have at the bottom of my case
where are you going to mount hdd's?
good idea with the rads. looks brilliant and saves on space. i'm curious how much effect doing it stacked like that with an air tunnel will be over more traditional 120.2 lay outs.
I hope for a great sandy bridge OC with that great case and watercooling loop! That's a great start, I love the phantom.
Up and running and looking quite beastly...wooohooo
Thats a solid looking chassis mate.
I like the sharp angular looks of the Phantom. Gives it a stealth bomber type of look.
looks good... eyes are watching..
love the double 120 idea
Exciting build...will be watching closely
I wonder if you're planning to reuse the Phantom's Fan-controller? It is a handy bit of kit, and you'll probably loose one of the 120MM side fans to make way for the rads anyway, so why not hook them up to that connection?
Ahhh, interesting, I see what your up to. I did wonder how you were going to mount that little lot
He's been quite lately, which probably means he's dreaming up the next MNPC tech wonder mod
Nice photos - what camera are you using Paul?
Not to be downer, but stacking rads like that probably isn't going to give great results. These tests shows a single rad outperforming stacked rads with the same fans:
Having said that, in your favor your rads have somewhat lower FPI (11 vs. 14 for the tested Magicools), and if you're going to be running those Scythes at full speed (1900rpm), you'll probably see better performance than a single rad. It seems that the major problem with stacking rads is the increased air restriction, which the higher speed fans and lower FPI will mitigate somewhat. However, I think the performance still won't be close to what separating the rads will do.
Sweet looking project Paul!
Good luck with everything and I am certain this will be one hell of a Beast!!
Very neat and tidy Mr Taylor. it looks like it grew there. It all fits in very tidily I must say...+ rep
Wow, that looks superb
Will be keeping an eye one this one -Subbed
what size are the bit fenix fans
