Description

Thanks to all the posting before me it helped my build!

I reused my GTX1080 so this saved me a bunch $$, but, ill need to replace it to be able to close the glass all the way. Will start overclocking soon to text on rendering projects. I do wish the case was 1/2" wider and 1"-2" taller just enough for a H100i v2. Any thoughts??

not bad, but try tucking that red led strip away. the AIO pipes could be better managed. looks high end to me!

Nice build, how are you GPU temps with it facing the glass? I've built a couple of Shift systems and always had to face the fans in so the bottom fan gave them fresh air.

Keep your card and cool it with a kraken g12, it will fit with s h75 cooler paired with a slim 120mm fan. Turn your aio rad 45degrees and it will fit.

On second thought s the PCB of your 1080 may be to wide, though worth measuring to figure it out

yea i agree it dont think it will help. :( but i need something to cool the case down some.

Did you use the bottom GPU bracket screw to secure the card? Is that why the card seems to be leaning out and preventing you from closing the case? I have seen larger two-slot cards in Shift builds, so I don't see why your card would prevent you from closing the case otherwise.

The card is hitting the PSU this wont allow it to close but there is a plus side this allows more air to hte VC and keeps it cooler. Also the Fan on the Front is keeping the VC from siding over enough too a slightly thinner fan and i would be all set. but I'm looking at all my options before i take the next step.

From some reviews I’ve seen, this case does really bad in terms of airflow and overall cooling performance.

But indeed it is one of the most original ones on the market. Really like how it looks. It’s one of those few cases that you can put like in your living room as a piece of furniture

How are the front fans and AIO configured? Curious about the impact of that on the GPU temps? Also I presume turning your GPU away from the glass would also improve temps significantly.

Phanteks designed this case with liquid cooling both cpu and cpu in mind.But you can use it with blower type gpus with no problem.Since you have wanted to show your gpu even at the cost of high temps, you should buy a longer riser cable since included one is short.Thats the reason you cant close your case!If you really want to use this case with normal temps, I suggest you to buy blower gpu or liquid cooled one!That was the reason I gave up on this case!

Nice build. I'm about to buy the same mobo and ram, but heard that spacing between the dimms is pretty tight, and the two Trident Z sticks end up touching and being forced into a "V shape" (read this on Newegg, while others say Corsair sticks fit better). Is that true? I can't really tell from the pics... thanks!

The Ram is fine and look great!

Is the GPU pushed out by the riser cable or the top rad fan? you could just do a push config and remove that top fan. i've never seen a GPU not fit this case but maybe since it is spun around. idk. Others reporting lower temps with GPU fans inward and all case fans in exhaust, and with that top rad fan off you may be able to install another exhaust right there. Another guy on here had his panel cut out so the GPU fan exhausted outside his case. You'll get it working. lol.
