Hi folks - long time lurker, first time poster.

As somebody who'll be buying the Primo in the next month or two, I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who contributes to this thread. It's been a great resource for me having recently decided my next gaming PC will the first that I water cool. The info and feedback here, as well as all the video reviews have pretty much helped me decide that the Primo will be the perfect case to house this build!

Speaking of info, is Martin's Pump and Rad tool still floating around? I think Jesse offered to mail it to someone recently. Would love to have a play around with it while I plan my build.

p.s. The 290x sounds like a jet engine if you crank the fan (i.e. over 60%). In quiet mode, its very quiet and Uber isnt too bad either.

I assume you mean the air cooled version. How far does the cooler hang over ? Looking at some pics , I see only a small plastic strip along the far edge .... looks like it will be 1/4 - 3/8" shorter w/ a water block.

As for the noise .... it comes from the case window moving in the frame .... I been tossing around all sorts of ideas from rubber paining the back side biut it's not gonna be easy .... the window has a channel which into which fits a lip.

__ .|__| .___
....|____|

The lip when pressed in therefore makes contact on 3 sides and with any twist of thermal movement it's gonna rub ....... it also rattles cause the securing mechanism (tabs) each apply a different amount if pressure. I thought of tape but I doubt there's room ..... because of the tabs and lip go inside the channel and are folded over , I notice:

1. Some of the acrylic was chipped during the install process.... Id say 4 or 5 of mine have noticeable chips under the tabs where they weren't pressed down evenly .... if ya remove it, you don't wanna do it repeatedly...... nice idea.... tool less ..... but if ya do it often fatigue failure will result on the tabs

2. I don't see how ya can eliminate the noise just yet.... panel is too flexible and attachment points use the tabs as "stops" which allow slight travel..... lemme sleep on it. smile.gif

Thanks Jack, much obliged!

While I was struggling with getting the right side of the case on (side fans kept clipping wires) I looked at the twisted STA data cables and power cables and thought it was awful messy. Thinking that some custom cabling would eliminate most, it occurred to me that the best place to mount one of those SSD mounts was inside a HD tray.....line up all the data / power cables in a straight line and things get a lot neater. Nice option and all to be able to hang that mountie thingie wherever ... but it would been almost no effort at all to allow HD bay mounting also..... another idea for Enthoo 2,

You can mount one on there as screw holes are provided but the ability to stack them 2 in a HD bay on the provided mount woulda been a big plus. I looked at the mountie thingie and thought a few drill holes would accommodate me but they all wind up on the the edge of the channels. Think I can accomplish my goals w/ zip ties but wud like sumthin more elegant smile.gif

Well will be something for them to consider for Enthoo 2.
