What I did right now is extended a hole that was in place with my drill and mounted with the EK bracket, but I feel like this is not a permanent solution especially if I decide to upgrade the Reservoir tube size in the future. Any thoughts? All i have is a simple CPU loop and I am having issues figuring out what the best way to mount everything is. I think My 295x2 is part of the problem.

At least in the Primo that bracket is only for a floor mounted pump. I had to drill holes in that bracket for my MCP50x though, so I'm not sure what it fits exactly...

Look for some holes in the bottom of case that line up with it, if you still care (probably not going to use it now).

I am going to use the same pump/res in a Primo build. Keep following this thread to see what I figure out smile.gif

I don't mind drilling extra holes in the case, its not a big deal for me, but it seems the newer EK xres 140 Revo with the fan bracket was more suited for this case. I don't really want to open up the bottom panel to remove the hard drives, because I don't have anywhere else to put them.

The EK Uni Pump Bracket 120mm fan may give you some more flexibility. It can actually be mounted to the 120mm fan slots at the front of the case and will offset it to a position similar to where it is now -

Just traded in my luxe for this puppy,



This is not the final build, and does anyone have a clue how the rgb controller works? the light keeps fading in and out.

Looks like you have plenty of room to mount that pump to the psu cover. Or is that not an option?
Sorry If I can't see it properly on the pictures.... kind of dark there. biggrin.gif


p.s.
Already had contact with Phanteks about my case....

Yesterday I had some time to unpack the Primo and have a look at it.
Found this on the front panel. mad.gif

A bit hard to see with the potato pictures. But it is a pretty noticeable (and feel-able) dent.


PSU rubber missing. biggrin.gif

And also some skimped paint on the left panel (probably due to the hit to the front panel?



Can other Primo users here clarify if the right side panel fits nicely against the lower part of the case?
Looks like my right panel is also slightly bend, at the front it aligns perfectly but towards the rear there is a slight gap between the panel and the case itself.


Phanteks asked for more pictures and a copy of my invoice so they can sort things out for me.
Good support.... had a reply within 2 hours.

I will show you the mount in a couple hours when I get from home with better pictures. I bought the silver Tempered Glass case, but kind of wish I got the Gray one instead.

If the motherboard area was 8mm longer I wouldn't even hesitate from downsizing from my primo to the evolve. It's a gorgeous case.
