Yep. your UEFI (bios) will have all your fan speed profiles/controls/etc in the hardware/temp monitoring menu and will allow you to custom tailor how you want them to behave.

You most likely also have PWM controls for a primary motherboard 4 pin fan header as well. My ASRock board has 2 PWM headers, one for the CPU and one for the main motherboard fan header. I used this to my advantage since I'm running 2 radiators, each with 6 fans. The CPU fan header runs to one Phanteks PWM hub where all the fans for one of the radiators are hooked up to. This one I set in the UEFI to only spin up to 75% fan speed once the CPU goes over 60*C

The other one however, I installed a 2nd Phanteks PWM hub and ran all of the fans on the 2nd radiator to it and set that to run at around 900 rpms at all times unless the CPU hits 70*C where they would then spin up to 50% of their max speed.

With them set this way, the system is incredibly quiet even when the CPU is under full load doing video rendering/encoding. Temps hover in the low 70's *C during stress testing and the loudest thing in the system at idle is usually the pump.

What FastRedPonyCar said. thumb.gif
Haven't used a new Asus board in awhile, but they used to have software for setting heat to PWM% curve. Make it easier than having to use Bios.

Hi. I'm planning a build with Gigabyte (EATX) z170x Gaming g1 and EK Predator AOI CPU Cooler provisionally in an Enthoo Primo. Given the EATX form factor and the EK unit being 68mm thick including fans I'm concerned whether top mounting the rad assembly would lead to clearance issues. Anyone able to give a definitive answer on this?

Regarding air flow for the bottom of the Primo, what would be peoples suggestions for adding height while on carpet.
As much as I'd like castors, it wouldn't work well.

There's 80mm clearance, but also remember there's a top bay fans can be mounted in which gives you a total of 82mm.
Just measured mine. biggrin.gif

Why won't casters work well? I've used caster bases on carpet more than any other way.
You could make a "sled" the size of case bottom with blocks where each of the feet on case are.

Doyll's sled would work perfectly, or you could just put it on blocks. Both would get the job done.

So getting close to putting my Primo together and I still have not found out how I want to fix the airflow.
The top will be a 480 radiator, bottom will be a 480 radiator and "backside/sidepanel" will be a 240 radiator.

Other than That I will have 2x140 in the front, and 1x140 in the back.

The obvious solution is to have all radiators as intake, and all "fans only" as exhaust. The problem is design. Fans look so much better when they are are setup as exhaust, Which is why I am thinking about having all the "fans only" as intakes and the radiators as exhaust. But this might hurt temps considerably. And the rear fan would look bad.

Thoughts?

Most important thing really would be to ensure you don't have conflicting fans in your setup. What I mean by that is that you don't want to have one intake fan right next to an exhaust fan and so on. Personally I would run intake in front and bottom with exhaust in the top and rear just to create a natural flow of things, but you may be able to tweak that setup a bit to improve temps, but that would at the very least be my basic setup.

@maskymus did some fairly extensive testing on his Primo setup with 2x 480s and various intake/exhaust setups. He ended up with bottom rad intake, and top rad exhaust, he said that the main reasoning was that the top mesh filter on the Primo is very restrictive so that setup worked better for him.

I'm also using the same setup and it works fine. It surely effects temps somewhat but not majorly. With the amount of rad you will have it shouldn't really matter that much.
