    Question: In the NZXT Phantom, what size radiator(s) does it accept up top with the mounting hardware provided and can you use proper sized fans for the radiator with the hardware provided?

    I have a 240 mounted just fine and yes u can add more 120 fans below the rad and have the optional 200 mounted on top (between chassis and plastic cover. u can see a pic of it in my build log in sig.

    360 rad may put a strain on the mounts given there not in center but I never attempted that.

    Hmm.. that mounts really low. Fans would be blocking parts of the mobo... I suppose I could remove the 200mm fan(s) and make the mount much shorter. :)

    I thought about that also. I noticed I could only get a fan on the cpu side since the ram slots are in the way. I was wondering if those super thin 120's like on the surikeens (or whatever, lazy 2 look up lol) would fit above the rad between the rad and chassis. I'm just gonna mount one 120 on cpu side and I have dual 200 on top to help with push. It may just work that way

    Do a hundred or so cases a year and it becomes more natural;) I've been at it for over 3 years and I dont think most of mine are still that good. Only advise I can give for that, it always work with one set of wires at a time...IE front I/O wiring, SATA cables, then the PSU. A modular PSU makes all the difference!
    Lastly, invest in a large bag of zip ties;)
