Best HS/F that will fit into an NZXT Phantom with the side fan in.

basically, what's the best cooling option that will fit into an NZXT Phantom with the side fan installed? I'm going for 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance RAM in the build. Which is big. I have quite a large budget so water cooling is an option.


No I wouldn't rather a HAF 932/X for the pure and simple reason that they look terrible.


Thanks in advance.

  1. alternatively, will I see better cooling performance without the side fan and a massive heatsink/fan combo?
  2. this is something I am interested as well I did have a coolit domino alc before but it leaked :( so I would prefer an air cooler :) have you had any luck?

    As long as you don't add the 200mm and just use the bottom 2x120mm pretty much any air cooler will fit.
    It would be nice to know what cpu you're using.
  4. you can pretty much eliminate Noctua NH-D14 and Thermalright Silver Arrow.

    <- Also has Phantom Case.

    They will hit the side fan along with Corsair Vengeance Rams.
  5. I'm using an i7 950 :)
  6. I've had a custom system prebuilt by one of Australia's top Overclockers in the meantime guys. Here's a shot of the inside. http://leo.speakserver.com/karma/docs/build_logs/00339/DSCF0282.JPG

    Thanks for the advice! The dual vertical fans you can see towards the front of the case are the front mounted fans on the Phantom.

    Oh yeah, it's a modded NZXT Phantom =D
  7. And fyi, that's Corsair Vengeance 2x4G in there, as well as a Thermalright Silver Arrow.
