Had a knock on the door this morning, with the FedEx guy bringing me a brand-new Enthoo Pro courtesy of Newegg. Moved in this evening after work.

This was a long time in coming, and there were so many cables and wires in my old case that I could no longer use it without restricting the airflow inside (it's an older Antec model and cable management in this case is literally nonexistent). This is what I was dealing with:



Anyway, I unboxed the Enthoo Pro and started working with it, and I am extremely impressed. This is an awfully nice case to be had for $97 shipped, and I wish I had gotten one a year and a half ago when I first considered it. This case cost less than my Antec SX1040B did 15 years ago, and it's built every bit as well. It took me about two hours to get everything moved over and route all of the cables behind the board, and I ended up with this:



Only thing is that I wish they provided the PSU cover along with the windowless model; it's not a big deal but it would help a little. I actually have more use for that than I do the HDD case, which I removed since my internal drives are actually four 3.5" drives, two SSD's and two mobile HDD's. I mounted those in two of the 5.25" bays with the help of two Icy Dock Flex-Fit Trios from my old build, and just pulled the HDD case out for better airflow.

Thanks to dlewbell for responding to me on the thread earlier when I asked about the Enthoo Pro, and to Liranan for his post a few weeks ago on his experience with the case as well. thumb.gif I've tried other cases before and always gone back to the Antec. This one's a keeper.

You've still got lots of room in there. Time to work on some cable management tongue.gif.

If you're referring to the old case, there wasn't any. It was made in 2001! I bought it from Newegg in the year that they opened for business. Back then, there was no such thing as cable management. Cable management became a "thing" not long after that, when people started buying cases with side windows. I kept using it because I could never find anything else that did the job better; even with the rat's nest of cables, it was still easier to work in than anything else I tried.

I've never particularly cared one way or the other about how the interior of a PC looks, but I do care about airflow, and that old case was seriously restricting it with all of the hardware that's in there--four HDD/SSDs, an optical drive, a memory card reader, and three PCI/PCIe cards besides the video.

Don't be surprised if they are noisier than you hoped they would be. They are industrial fans, not consumer fans And make more noise at low at same rpms as their consumer counterparts.

The H115 radiator is extremely dense and requires stupid pressure and air speed to cool. Combined with a pump that at full speed moves at best about 1/3 of what even cheap component pumps move at an idle and you have a fubar.

I think Pez is referring to the flat black cable and the GPU power cables which can easily be fed through grommet directly in front of PSU and back through grommets to the right of motherboard for a cleaner look. tongue.gif

You've done a very nice job, but we are perfectionists to the extreme here. biggrin.gif

Ah, building a convection oven. Thankfully, since you aren't using liquid cooling you'll have plenty of room to use the PSU cover as a cooking rack. A small chicken should fit nicely, and should cook in about the same time as your GPU. tongue.gif

Two things - first, you are going to need to isolate the top exhaust fans or you really will be building a convection oven. If you don't block off the openings in the radiator tray up top, you won't have any exhaust from the top - it will simply keep dumping the air back down into the case. It will be making a ton of noise and not doing anything.

Second - a Swiftech H240-X2 would have cost you less than the H115i plus the two Noctua fans, and made the rest of the Noctua fan purchases (even more) unnecessary. doh.gif And, since it is pretty obvious that you are building with form over function, the Swiftech certainly would have looked a lot better as a bonus.

No need to be nice about it. Come-on, lay it all out on the line! I'll even bring the beer to this barbecue. biggrin.gif
Have to admit, I never thought of using GPU overheat alarm as timer for when chicken is ready. tongue.gif
