That was my thought too. I was totally not expecting it to dwarf my air 540.

Oh yeah, it's big. Size-wise, I believe it's right up there with 900D and Cosmos II. Enthoo Primo is not for the "mid-tower" segment. lol

I just got my case in last night. A few takeaways that I noticed.

1. It is HUGE as mentioned. My wife asked what I could possibly need that much space for. devil.gif
2. I was having the same issue with the front panel. It took a good amount of force to get it to click back in. Also, the bottom filters took a while to want to pop out and go back in.


My box came in from ups with a big gash in it, looked like a hi-lo fork hit it. By some small miracle, there was no damage to the case!


I have purchased the asus z87 hero rog board for this build. I'm still unsure on what color theme to go with as my current pc is already red tubing. Any thoughts of other colors that go well with a few small red accents ? (mobo/red memory also).

The correct response is, of course, "You'll see." wink.gif

The correct response is, I'm building a machine to battle the forces of evil everywhere.

You can use clear or black tubing with some red and black (mixed) fittings.

It's definitely a big full tower, but I have to say it looks pretty small sitting next to a Cosmo II. It's not as tall or as deep as a 900D, but it is a little bigger than an 800D.

Enthoo Primo: 250 x 650 x 600 mm / 9.8 x 25.6 x 23.6 inch (W x H x D)
800D: 229 x 609 x 609 mm / 9 x 24 x 24 inch (W x H x D)
900D: 251 x 691 x 650 mm / 9.9 x 27.2 x 25.6 inch (W x H x D)
Cosmo II: 344 x 704 x 664 mm / 13.5 x 27.7 x 26.1 inch (W x H x D)

Considering how much smaller the Enthoo Primo is than a Cosmo II, it blows the Cosmo II away in so many ways it aint even funny. The Cosmo II is seriously lacking when it comes to watercooling capability unless you want to get creative modding it.

Cosmos needs to have 2 sets of measurements, Internal and external. Those Handles are waste of space when you look at the dimensions.

Absolutely. I looked at it soooo many times, but it just never quite seemed to check off the right boxes on my "must have" list for a case. Which I always found disheartening considering it's sort of the gold standard for full towers.

Or rather, WAS the gold standard. wink.gif

Considering I was about to buy the Cosmos II from Coolermaster refurbed for $220, I think I made the right choice with the Enthoo Primo. I had also considered the the 900D and still may buy it for my backup rig, but my main case will be the Enthoo.
