I was hoping if anyone could be kind enough to give me a few pointers in how to remove the back part of the rack so I could (if it's possible to fit the rad in the top) fit it in the top. Thanks for any help.

the Primo doesn't fit 560 rads, the length of the case is enough to fit a 480 rad and a 25mm fan on the inside. the coolgate 560 rad is 614mm long and the Primo is only 600mm deep including the front panel (the frame of the case is less than that by at least 40mm).

Also i'll install these custom grills onto the panels. Cause this is my only concern about the Case. it's 12C warmer on every component in the loop with the panels on.

Ramzinho my man, nice H440 build, but this isn't the right club. biggrin.gif

Whoops, I think it was my fault. tongue.gif I gave him a link to this thread for info and he must have posted that beauty here instead of W/C club biggrin.gif

I made a REALLY REALLY big oops! O well, live and learn (picked it up used for $60 so no big deal ;p). I was wondering can a radiator fit under the screen on the top of the case for a push only config?

yea, that sucks. don't feel too silly, I see many people put the cart before the horse like that still. you can put a rad under the top mesh, just has to be a 480 rad and a relatively thin one. @Faster_is_better is better qualified to answer this question. biggrin.gif

Probably, although you would have to drill holes for the inlet/outlet. Also 480mm is still the maximum length, and to fit it under the top cover you would likely have to use something 30mm or thinner. Don't know before you try thumb.gif

On another note... why would you mount it under the top cover? there is just so much space above the MB that I don't see any real reason to do so...

Edit: actually you made me kind of curious... I did a trial fit with a 30mm thick 360mm rad I have laying around... and the short answer is NO, it won't fit. You may be able to do it with a slimmer radiator, but with the one I have I couldn't put the top grill back on. With a bit of modification though... I don't see why not, you would need a new grill for the top to allow the thickness and the max length would be 360mm or maybe 420mm due to the size of the chambers. But yeah, I would say it's doable with some modifications.

Still though why would you do it? I mean there is no need for it considering the space in the case.

^ that's odd. the top cover on the primo looks at least as tall as the one on the Luxe and I put a 30mm 360 rad under there on the Luxe and the mesh closed over it fine.

I trimmed the top grill in my Primo to try and fit 38mm fans, Realistically I would probably need at least 8-10mm more height to fit them in without modifying the grill more. The way the latches work on the front are the biggest issue, since they are basically recessed 8-10mm below the top of the panel itself.



With cutting out a lot of the support structure for the mesh grill though, a 38mm fan just about fits, maybe 2-3mm shy of perfect fit, but you can only fit 2 of them in the center unless you do something a bit more crazy (modding).

30mm rad may fit but there are other clearance issues with length, especially if you went to a 480 it would be hard to keep stock look/functionality.

Here's what I did to mine to try and get that clearance, almost but not quite so I abandoned and have other plans.

^man, the Luxe' top compartment is not only deeper it seems, but if those are 120mm fans it's definitely a wider space as well.

It might be one of those things that Phanteks has learned along the way I'm guessing.

So event hough I'm not expecting a new Primo any time soon, I'm expecting they will release something along the lines of mk. II in the future with small things like this fixed. That said, I'm not sure how most manufacturers do it. When looking at something like Corsair they just make an entirelly new case instead, but then you ahve ones like Fractal Design making new iterations of the same case with slight updates along the way (one of the things I really love about Fractal really).

Anyways, like @Faster_is_better mentioned the issue with a 480mm is the chambers at the end of the radiator. Teh top cover of the primo can hold just about 480mm in total length, but as we all know there isn't really any 480mm radiators that is actually 480mm long including the chambers. Something along the lines of a 420mm might work if the chambers doesn't build more than 60mm/6cm past the fans and it doesn't build more than 140mm/14cm in width. A 360mm should work without pronblems though, but you would have to get one that is thin enough to clear the support beams on the top grill or modify it to work with a 30mm radiator like Faster_Is_Better did for his delta fans smile.gif

Actually 140mm x 24mm fans will work on the top, and that is a 120mm x 38mm fan in picture. The plastic cover is like 38-40mm high, basically if you set a 38mm fan to be mounted in that spot it is perfectly level with the top of the plastic panel. IIRC the actual fan mounts are raised up slightly 1-2mm but I may not be remembering that right. Seems like they were, or maybe the discrepancy is with using a gasket, where the 38mm fan lined up flush with the top.

I don't have any Delta 38mm tall fans in the top now since I wanted to retain stock look and mounting points of the top filter. Just have some random 24mm fans up there for now to hold the radiator lol

I do have some ideas how to mod them in but it will take some $$ and custom work.
