Hardware & Documentation
The accessories are simple but can get the job done. They are as follows (left to right):
- 12x fan screws
- 22x motherboard and SSD screws
- 4x PSU screws
- 2x thumbscrews
- 1x standoff
- 6x plastic zip ties
The manuals included starts with an RMA leaflet which tells you to work with Phanteks directly if there are issues or need for RMA. Secondly, is the actual manual which is quite simple and comes in a multi-fold sheet, like many we have seen before.
The vertical GPU bracket is not a standard accessory as it normally would be purchased separately, but being Phanteks included it, so we could show how it works, we will do so.
The bracket is meant to rotate the GPU into a vertical standing within the stock mounting location. This is why I mentioned the need for the omission of the separator bars between the expansion slots. As you can see here, this bracket should work with any chassis as long as you are willing to mod it if the separator bars are there, as you would have to cut them out.
Here is the bracket, and as you can see, it uses the standard mounting and secure tabs in the chassis to mount and secure the vertical GPU bracket. There is one area of concern that when affixing this bracket, you are omitting all other slots entirely which may not be an issue for most users who only have a GPU in their expansion slots. However, it is worth noting that should you run a sound card, AIC for SSD's or anything else in a PCIe slot, it may require some creativity to use it with this bracket.
