But I can't seem to find any wires w/ connectors matching those on the Enthoo. Closest I came was this .....

Are you guys using the top and bottom radiators as intakes?

I'm, all my fans except for the rear one are set for intake.

Positive Pressure = Rads get colder air compared to hot inside air, and case stays naturally dirt free. just my 4 cents (adjusted for inflation lol).

I'll be using the bottom 360 rad as an intake, and the top 480 rad as exhaust.

I'll also have four of the included 140mm fans as intakes (the 2 in the front and I'll move 2 to the right side panel) and the rear 140mm as exhaust to create a good crossflow of ambient air in the case and to make sure I have good amount of positive pressure to help prevent dust from being sucked in through the unfiltered back of the case.

Is there not an issue with expelling all the air out with this config, or will it find its way out through all the gaps?
The config in my head that i had ready was 2 at the front and 2x2 in push pull in the base as intakes, then 3x2 at the top in push pull and 1 in the rear as exhaust, but i was concerned about the imbalance of more fans pulling air out than i had going in.

If you haven't had any issues as all of them set as intakes that thats what i'm going to go with

That is the key, with positive pressure chances of you getting air in from all those gaps is very low. Perfect example is the back of the case, which if you think about is all ventilated with just one fan. WIth air being blown in from all directions in the case, the rear will not suck in any dust. That is still not an excuse to not clean inside the case regularly lol.

That was my mindset as well to set everything to intake. I currently have an EX480 on the bottom, but it will be going up top and a EX280 will be here tomorrow for the bottom. Figured I would repurpose those 140mm fans to the 280mm radiator for the time being. I wanted to order some Montsa rads but so many are out of stock so these will be a place holder.

Is anyone else running a 2011 Gene board in their Primo? I was wondering if the heatsinks would clear a 60mm or Monsta on top because the heatsinks are so low.


Do you guys think it would be possible to put a thin 240 on the hard drive fan bracket if it was a very thing radiator? I know this seems overkill but I d eventually like to fill this thing up.


P.S. I really thought this fan controler complimented the build nicely:

Thx Jesse .... I did find them eventually but they varied somewhat ..... some 3528 were over 10mm but as you said most were 8 ish .... 5050 ones were 10-12 ......black tape ones were hard to find tho.... didn't find anything on this side of the pond.

Talking about fan controllers, I'm waiting for the Aquaero 6 to come out, but that lamptron unit looks great.
