Beside the fact I already have one of the Monsoon's in a rig that's being decommissioned, it add a bit of bling and better than blanks covering the 5-1/4" bays. In terms of performance I think they are on par with tube versions of the same and take up less space.  
Hey Everybody what would you like to see in the next Enthoo Primo case?   Things I’d like to see in a Primo revision Or next big case from Phanteks what ever they call it.   Supplied Option for casters/ wheels Higher quality Acrylic or Lexan Glass better fastener system for side panel glass Option to hinge front panel door right hand or left hand. Even a clear glass panel door might be nice too with a nice aluminum frame for hardware. An easily removable panel...
I don't see any good reason why you couldn't just transfer it over other than the missed opportunity for a thorough inspection, cleaning and flushing of the loop and all it's components. Not to mention new fluid. This is considered routine maintenance and is recommended every 6 months. I personally have gone a year at the longest but you'd be surprised the junk you can find in a CPU block or pump etc after an extended period of time. All that stuff can cause lower flow and...
I still think at 150 usd the Luxe is way more than a better value. For example, did you known Phanteks cases are not riveted and many components simply unscrew. They are also specifically designed for multiple Rad configurations. In any case that is a nice case and I love the optional wheels something I wish the Phanteks came with.   I decided to make a few changes to the above build.   1st up no more hardline tubing as mentioned above. even if I can fill from the top...
 Hey TY much appreciated +rep. Exactly what I wanted to see too, with the fill to the back of the case.I like the HDD idea too.I'd say my guesstimate layout was pretty accurate.I hate ripping into a new case, or old but, that wouldn't be to bad and God knows I've done it many times before but pretty much eliminates resale if ever you decide to do so.
Ohh that's great I'd love to see that fit. Which 420 do you have?The logic behind the HDD cooler is more to provide a housing for it rather than cooling sine I'll be removing both HDD cages to accommodate a front Rad. Also something attractive enough that it blends with the build because it will be in plain view through the side panel glass on top of the PSU cover. Now that I thinks about it on the floor of the case under the PSU cover would likely be a better place for it...
Ya I like the size of the Luxe for my desktop a Primo sits there now which will be heading to the floor at my other workstation. Still need to build a stand w/rollers though. Bottom line my HAF 932 Advanced has got to go. Seems like I saw a 420 in a Luxe where the access from the top port was partially covered however the steel could be notched a bit but still not direct access without popping the top cover off. In other words a tight fit.Below illustrates my estimation on...
I've already got my 1st Phanteks case the Primo and looking forward to another build. Plus you'll note it's in my "know for sure" list. They are very water cooler friendly and the quality is superb. I'm familiar with all those cases you mentioned but they simply don't compare in terms of a well thought out design.   I do know I will have to forget about the hardline tubing because I will not be able to easily pull the bay res/pump combo out for filling. Unless I just...
ENTHOO LUXE   Please Note I have no interest in clogging up this thread with tons opinions not related to the case so I have started a dedicated thread here if you’d like to join in and help me. However I thought the layout would be of interest in this thread. If you must respond here keep in mind it should be related to the case only. TY      Considering Enthoo Luxe X99 Build   What I know for sure: I’m considering my next build a X99 based water cooled...
Considering Enthoo Luxe X99 Build   What I know for sure: I’m considering my next build a X99 based water cooled rig. Most definitely it will be CF or SLI. Parts I already have include the 5-1/4” bay pump/res. and GPU-X multi-link which will be incorporated into the build. Air flow will be negative pressure. All fans will be connected to  two Phanteks PWM Fan Controllers BluRay opt drive PSU cover will remain in place Alphacool 360 rad is 4.9 x 15.8 x 1.8...
