Loving this Phanteks CPU cooler! :cool:

As you can see, I added the "Sharpie Mod" to the lettering on the fans. Looks better this way and makes them readable.

I want to say a HUGE Thank You to you guys at Phanteks for making the metal fins on towers SO easy to remove. I had to remove 3 of fins on the right side of the right tower in order to fit my tall, high profile memory. Hopefully you can see what I'm talking about a little bit from this picture.

You can also see that I added a 3rd 120mm Phanteks fan to the far right side for a couple reasons. First off, with the two 140mm fans centered in the middle of the towers, they stick out from the back as well as the front by about 1/2". Now because of my tall memory sticks, putting the 140mm fan on the far right side made it stick out towards the front a ridiculous amount and wouldn't be centered on the tower. By moving these 140mm fans to the back and the center, they are both centered with the towers. In addition I wanted air to be pushed through both towers instead of having the middle fan push air through the left tower and having to pull all that air from the right tower. By adding this 120mm fan, it is even with the back of my modified tower (very close to my RAM) and sticks out the front evenly with the other two 140mm fans for a nice clean look. The 120mm fan isn't centered, but looks great and pushes air through that right tower like I want it to.

I know it's a little bit of a shame to cover up my beautiful Corsair Dominator Platinum 32Gb 2400Mhz memory sticks, but I prefer to think of it as Phanteks being the icing on the cake. ;)

Before Phanteks upgrade...

Wish Phanteks had a case badge so I could add it here since their CPU cooler is such a big part of my PC.

I'm confused. What are you talking about?
