phanteks p300 fans

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello guys,

I'm gonna build a pc next week (r5 2600, rx 580, seasonic s12ii, mx500 500gb, msi b450m pro-vdh, 16gb g.skill 2800mhz), and i've been searching for a case for a week now, and i think i finally decided on the phanteks p300. I'm a bit anal about temps and cooling. I know, if i want airflow i need to have a open mesh case, but the only one on my budget is the focus g, and it doesn't have a psu shroud or the p350x but i think it's ugly). My question is: i want 2 140mm fans on the intake, but im a bit clueless about them. I think i need static pressure fans, because of the dust filters, am i wrong? Can you guys recommend budget fans for my build for about 15€ each without rgb? airflow> noise in my case.

 

Thanks guys,

You're really sacrificing temperatures and noise for aesthetics. The Corsair ML140 comes in a pack of two and spins at up to 2000RPM. 

Don't get the Seasonic S12 II. It's ancient and garbage. The motherboard is mATX while the case is ATX. While it will be compatible, it might not look the best.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

is the phantek p300 really that bad? Can you recommend a case for around that price? The p350x is only 5€ more expensive. And the psu is already bought, i got a nice deal on it(50€).

Seriously don't buy the Seasonic S12, it's way too outdated (it's a group regulated unit which is bad). Check the PSU tier list for good alternatives.

Also have you considered the Meshify C? Not sure where you are located but over here it's about the same price and it has a mesh front and a PSU shroud. I have some Arctic P12s PWM PST which I am quite content with and they also come in 140mm.

The meshify c, here in Portugal is 90€, for that price i could get premium cases for cheaper

For temperatures, it's bad. It will matter less with the RX 580 than with e.g. a 2080 Ti, so you would be fine, if you really like the look. 

€50 is about €40 more than it's. Return it if you can, and get a Vengeance 400W, Pure Power 10 400W or CX450/M.

Trust me, here in my country is one the better deals. You can't get a bronze psu for less that 60€ dollars. I got the 620w version, the build will draw at maximum 400w. I think it's enough. Should i go for the p350x?

The S12 II being garbage does not change by country. 

You should be able to order from Amazon ES?

https://www.amazon.es/dp/B076PMC7QH/?tag=pcp02-21

400W is way more than the build will ever draw. Just don't trust PSU calculators, and look at actual reviews that actually test for power draw. 

If you really don't like the look of the P350X, you'll be fine with the P300. But it would certainly help the cooling.

And if decide to go with the p300, what types of fans should i get?

The P300 alright. Due to how the front fan mounts block off much for 140mm fans, either 140mm's or 120mm's would be good. 

Where are you shopping / located?

On Portugal, mainly on a shop called "pcdiga". I already bought most of my components, just missing the case, ram and ssd. How much would the temperature drop from the p300 to p350x with 2 140mm fans? 1-2 ºc?

Are you referring to swapping cases or fans? In either case, it doesn't provide a consistent drop in temps. The drop is dependent on the system specs and how adequate cooling was beforehand. If cooling was already adequate, adding more fans or getting a slightly better case generally doesn't make much of a difference. I'd recommend testing with the case first before deciding on whether or not to add more case fans.

Yes, but at best case scenario, would the temperature difference be big comapring the 2 cases?

It depends on what you mean by best case scenario. It could anywhere between a small 1-2c difference or up to 10c. 

The difference is probably small if you're using more than just the stock fans in either case.
