I know that feeling. I don't have anywhere near everything I want to put in it, nor will I even by the time they do ship my pre-ordered Enthoo Primo to me, but it sure doesn't stop me from wishing it was on its way already.

Last I heard from the Phanteks live chat support person on phanteksusa.com was they were due to start shipping toward the end of Sept or early Oct. I wish they could be more specific than that. One of the moderators of Phanteks' 'The Club' forum posted this:

Your order will be shipped from the first shipment we receive. Because we have not received the cases yet, we can not ship any of the orders. I am trying to talk to the boss to include a free gift for our first orders to somewhat compensate for the wait. (The wait is killing me too.) But you can be sure you will be one of the first people to receive your case.

Soooo, maybe those of us who have already pre-ordered the case will receive a "free gift"? I sure hope so especially now that the moderator has put that in my head, as if just the wait wasn't already killing me. lol

FYI:
Jesse has added a FAQ at the end of the Enthoo Primo watercooling build review at the zoo for replies to all of the questions he keeps getting asked about the case:

@Unicr0nhunter, thanks for putting the link to the FAQ here. If I missed any questions, please feel free to send me a PM or leave a comment over at the zoo.

Things I plan on addressing:

1. PWM fan hub max load capacity.


Also I replaced the plate in the lower front panel to make the airflow better for the front fans..

I just don' think I have enough room in this case to do what I want to do... Yes, It can hold Daul PSU, three video cards, and an lga2011 board... But all the raddage needed to cool that stuff to the point that makes water cooling effective would basically remove all storage capacity besides the dual SSD slots.

=( I don't want a 900D, but it's the biggest cheapest monolith on the market.

Buy this thing:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/3040/noi-05/FrozenCPU_HDD_Noise_Reduction_System.html?id=Zp8AXVIS&mv_pc=197

I got 3 for the HD's which leave me one 5.25 bay for dvd and another for the fan controller. My pumps are not bay based so that's is the best of worlds. I can put 2x 480 mm + 2 x 240 mm or 1x 480 mm 1x 280mm and 2x 240 mm and still have 4 ssd's and 3 mechanical drives and plenty of space for pumps and reservoirs. Plenty of room for my goals. thumb.gif

I realize this is an older comment on this topic, but it probably should be pointed out that (1) the ODD panel isn't affected at all by a rad in the bottom (assume this was just a typo error), and (2) there are two HDD cages in the Enthoo Primo that hold 3 HDDs each. Each HDD cage is separately removable and in order to fit a 480 rad in the bottom front only the bottom HDD cage needs to be removed. The top cage can just hang - it doesn't need the lower one for support. Even an 80mm thick 480 Monsta in push/pull will fit on the bottom without affecting the top HDD cage (see the animated GIF I made from Phantek's 'Watercooling possibilities' video posted below). Jesse noted in his review that there is almost 160mm of space from the bottom before you will hit the bottom of the top HDD cage

Built with GIF Movie Gear 4.0

FYI: In addition to the HDD cages, the case also comes with 2 separate SSD brackets which hold 2 SSDs each and have mounts elsewhere other than the HDD cages. If/when Phanteks offers them separately. there's an extra mounting spot for another SSD bracket, so even with 480 rads top and bottom you have room for 3HDDs and 6 SSDs without having to mod anything to make room for more.

You can fit a 60mm thick 480 rad up top (maybe even an 80mm 480 monsta up top, see the next page or so of comments) and definitely an 80mm thick 480 rad on the bottom, both in a push/pull, and still keep the top 3 HDD cage. I would think that would be more than enough "raddage" to "cool that stuff". ;-)

OCUK has the ship date down as 04/10/13, which is annoying, but all we can do is wait...
On another note, I just sneaked in under the returns date for my Alphacool 420 UT60, as going by Jesse's writeup, Im really not sure if i can set it up with Push/pull in the roof, so i'm now waiting to get the case in my hands to see how much space i have with my Z87-UD5H. I'm confident, just not 100%, hence the return. My heatsink is nowhere as tall as the EVGA Dark, but i didnt wanna be stuck with the rad

Yep, that is correct. But if you want to run 2 x 240 mm in front and side both cages have to go away which is my plan right now. 280 mm bottom, 240 mm x 2 front+side and 480 mm top.

Just got the xt45 (smaller sibling) of the 60 for my top rad. I am going push-pull route with 8x ap15 over there.
