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
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". ;-)Edited by Unicr0nhunter - 9/9/13 at 1:51pm
