Just be aware that you will lose a lot of 5.25 inch bay space if you do it like I did. So if you have a lot of 5.25 inch drives I would be careful. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Easiest routing / access, not performance.
Thanks for the photos and thanks for the warning on the 5.25 bays... I didn't think about it.


My Luxe setup Hope it helps.

Nice looking system, but a few cables look wrong; GPU and HDD are too 'in my face'. I would route them behind PSU cover and back panel and back up componet thru grommets.

Also, do you realize you are trying to move 4x fans of intake vent air out only the vent area of case back? This means you can only flow as much air through your radiators as case can exhaust out the back. front top vents .. and front top vent is exhaust is going right back into front fan on top radiator. Not a problem if things are running cool thumb.gif, but if not that is the reason. tongue.gif

Keep in mind that photos of LEDs are drastically different than what they look like in person. Photos generally make it appear that LEDs are more abundant and brighter than they actually are.

This is something that rarely gets mentioned, often is denied when it is, but is very important. What goes in, must come out. The more resistance there is to air going out....the more resistance there will be to air coming in. That means that fans will need to run at a higher rpm to do the same job and more static pressure will exist.

Also, I have always seen the "run all rads as intake" as an excuse not to take the time to set up case airflow correctly. If you take the time, you can get the same temp results with less noise.

Is it possible to not move the drive bay at the bottom and just mount a d5 next to it?

Grr. I am also waiting for my Primo. Takes long for new batch to be finished.

People here using a EK d5 x-res? Care to share pictures of your mount? Looking for ideas here.

Thanks

ive decided to mount my res to the top of the rad with the universal bracket mount...its going to be too costly to use the intended spot behind the mobo so a 15 dollar bracket or 70 dollars in fittings...and it will be displayed...

I will.
Will probably also make a log, sort off.

I'm not good at making logs. biggrin.gif
Already have some pictures ready of the radiator restoration.

Why..... the stock on Primo cases.

Just checked on Casekings.de as they display expected delivery of the Primo (thanks for the tip fellow OCer, forgot who told me tongue.gif). Link (clicky)
Expected 11-8-2016 !!!

Ah men... I can't wait that long. lachen.gif
Just sent a e-mail to Phanteks support to ask about the issue. Out of stock everywhere (at least where I can buy), sadly they won't ship directly to me from the Phanteks web store.

Nice looking system, but a few cables look wrong; GPU and HDD are too 'in my face'. I would route them behind PSU cover and back panel and back up componet thru grommets.

Also, do you realize you are trying to move 4x fans of intake vent air out only the vent area of case back? This means you can only flow as much air through your radiators as case can exhaust out the back. front top vents .. and front top vent is exhaust is going right back into front fan on top radiator. Not a problem if things are running cool thumb.gif, but if not that is the reason. tongue.gif

I have tried it both ways not lazy as some would suggest. First I tried 4 in (front rad) 3 (out rear and top rad). Second and as it is in the pics I have 6 in (front & top rad ) and 1 out (rear case). You are correct the old way was slightly better but we are talking 1-2C idle and no improvement under load making the positive case pressure, therefore less dust, the key reason why I don't change it back. I've considered a more potent fan for the rear exhaust, removing all expansion slot covers and pull vs push for the top rad, still set as intake, for improvements but haven't tried those things yet. If you have any suggestions I haven't thought of please part with your wisdom I'd be glad to consider it. Of course I always prefer push/pull but that's just not practical in a Luxe @ the top rad.

 

@Shiftstealth The UV lights take horrible pics and I was using a phone (best camera I have) and like @ciarlatano suggest pics don't do it justice. The UV lights are very dim in person but I will admit the rear I/O lights are over kill but I love having them there. I'd like to add a switch for them but I guess I'm lazy. ;) I got the Dazmod Darkside LED light strips because they are dimmable however they don't dim as much as I would like but don't get me wrong though, I love these thing and again they are not near as bright in person. I will replace all my leds with these bad boys over time they are that good. Lite weight, easy to install, with fan header connector which means you can control them in bios or a fan controller as desired and black pcb for a very clean look. I want to try the RGB ones next.

 

@doyll I agree with your opinion of the GPU & Sata cable. In my defense I added a backup HDD and was in a hurry, sata cable my bad, and it's a shame to see that sweet grommet go to waste. Maybe I'll put a temp sensor down there to cover it and move the cable to the back as suggested.

 

Thanks for the input guys!
