What colour does include the new revision res bracket? And do you know how to cut it otherwise?

Just email support@phanteksusa.com and ask if you could purchase that piece for your chassis and specify if you have another color chassis (mine was red/black). They'll ask for your shipping address and send an invoice through shopify. Once you pay it they will send it your way.

FYI, the holes in the bracket are designed for the Bitspower reservoir.
Okey, thanks. Is the bracket plastic? Can i cut it with a knife? Is it hard?

The base piece is metal: http://cdn.overclock.net/7/72/729951c2_32080_4_phanteks_launches_new_enthoo_primo_pc_chassis.jpeg and it has a rectangular piece of plastic on it that's removable: http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0232/4705/products/left_1024x1024.png?v=1376082945

Not sure how thick the metal is. It is completely removable if you want the easiest option. When I modded my HDD cage (cut in half) I used a sawzall with some high teeth-per-inch jigsaw blades, and some WD40 on the blade.

My question is whether anyone else has had the absolutely obnoxious creaking/popping from the windowed side panel especially when case pressure increases because of fans?

While im here ill share as well. I built my new rig a few months ago in a Core X9 that at first i loved but slowly grew to hate. I had painted it and made some minor modifications but i just couldn't get over this growing disgust. It's a roomy case but its truly boring and cable management is so hard in and open space that size with no panels for hiding things. I've built more than my fair share of gaming rigs over the last 10 years or so, but the one thing I've never done is my own custom loops. I've only ever used high end air cooling or AIO units. I decided a couple of weeks ago, its time for that to change and i also decided there was no chance i was doing it in the X9.

So, after doing A LOT of reading and obvious window shopping, i figured the Primo was the best bang for the buck and gave me what i was looking for. Now, here i am sharing it with you all. I transfered everything from my old case and this is what i have so far.

As you can see its a work in progress. I ordered my WC parts today and boy is the wife unhappy...lol.

What i have coming:

2x XSPC RX360 Rads in white
2x EK Red Backplates
2x EK Waterblocks
XSPC Raystorm Pro CPU Block
Tons of EK HDC Red Fittings and PETG Tube
XSPC D5 Photon 270 Res/Pump Combo
12x Phanteks 120SP Fans
Tons of red cable combs

I'll update with photos once its all done. But any info on this annoying noise would be great.
most people that it bothers greatly replace the side with an acrylic sheet with magnets to hold it in place...or they replace the panels...some said they shimmed the panel from the inside and it helped...this is an issue with all three cases...the primo is probably the worst as the door is larger...I was lucky on my pro I never had that sound...congrats on moving up to the real deal though...you'll likely never go back to air smile.gif check the forums here for a lot of good info from guys like b negative and the likes they have quite a few good tutorials on the petg and measuring, bending, etc.

Seems like someone put some tape or even shoved some paper between the window and the door and that helped to stop the creaking. Also I don't think it is caused by any fan pressure, but instead the heating/cooling of the plastic. I hear my case make some noises very rarely, and it will probably be a lot worse this time of year since the basement is going to be very cool now...

What tools do i need to cut the metal res bracket then? And how?

It is very thin sheet metal, but will need either something like a dremel with metal cut-off wheel or some metal/tin snips and a file to dull the sharp edges when you are done.
You can see how I modified mine here. I used the dremel to cut notches in the plastic part, and also notched the bottom corner of the res bracket.

If you haven't bought the case yet, it may come with the new style bracket.

If you havent got the case yet, you most likely dont have to worry about any mods, as the newer cases are being shipped with the newer bracket as i believe someone already pointed out. The new bracket works just fine with longer cards and with 1 and 3 slots so theres no interference. I have two eVGA 980Ti's and they fit perfect with the new bracket and no interference.



Thats the newer version of the bracket, unmodified. Chances are you will receive that in your case unless you get a hold of old stock.
