THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE we wish Phanteks had given us an ex­tra inch (al­though there is the Shift X…). Mod­u­lar SFX power sup­plies in this build are a night­mare. In­stall the ca­bles first, and you can’t fit the PSU in place; in­stall them af­ter­ward, and there’s not enough room to even push them in. On top of that, the rub­ber grom­met bracket, with the mag­netic fold­ing Phanteks cover, is an­noy­ingly pop-riv­eted into place. If you could re­move that, or tem­po­rar­ily move it up­ward, it would make PSU in­stal­la­tion so much eas­ier. To get around this, we ended up pre-in­stalling the ca­bles into the PSU be­fore se­cur­ing it, then push­ing the ca­bles down as much as pos­si­ble, in an at­tempt to flat­ten them. We then re­moved one of the rub­ber grom­mets from the cable pass-through to give us enough wig­gle room to slide the PSU in and se­cure it in place.
