No seriously, the Evolv looks very nice but I need somewhere to stash my 360 and 420 rads. Evolv ain't gonna cut it.
You got that backwards mate. Kids go Primo, than grow up and realize they don't have room for this giant and learn how to get all the cooling they need from a smaller case and go Evolv. devil-smiley-019.gif

I prefer <1000 rpm fans

Actually........reducing noise was another big factor in my decision. The UT60s (really just about all 60mm rads) really need push/pull at low fan speeds to operate efficiently, and that is not the case with the GTS. The Evolve is also a much quieter case in general by design, and the top rad is much more muted than in the open top of the Primo. So, I went from six 120mm plus seven 140mm fans to only three 120mm plus three 140mm. Using the PWM hub (so badly named.....) My fans sit at ~650rpm at idle and lower loads, and top out ~1050rpm at absolute highest. This is much quieter than I could achieve in the Primo, and I even tried things like having the pull fans off below 50C cores, using the 360 passively below 50C, etc. End of the day, I gave up about 5C running P95 (about 2C in real world use), and got smaller, quieter, simpler and much easier to maintain with a much cleaner install.

So, as you say, really all about what you want. I'm just not sure I can agree with your assumptions about noise and cooling since a little setup time produced something drastically different.

LOL.....I wasn't going to say it......

But, really, the Primo is a great place to experiment and find out what works for you. Lots of room to experiment and very user friendly. It was a huge help to me in evaluating WaCo components.

Doy ou guys know if its possible to turn off the Phanteks LED strip while its connected? I installed it last night the new 2M version with the magnets, this thing is awesome! But I would like the option to turn it off from outside the case.

Try holding the case button that normally changes the colors. To turn it back on, you'll need to hold the button again.

Thank you!

I was considering throwing and extra fans for this case (Evolv ATX TG) and replace the stock ones with :

Front intake : 2x Fractal Design Venturi HP-14 PWM or NF-14 (they are even more quiet)
Back exhaust : 1x BeQuiet Silent Wings 2 140mm

That way I will have super quiet and good airflow system.

And as for airflow, hmmmm I will have to experiment a little bit.

Option 1) 2x 140mm's as front intake and 1x 140mm as back intake as well + AIO/CLC two 140mm's as exhaust in push config

Option 2) 2x 140mm's as front intake and 1x 140mm as back exhaust + AIO/CLC's two 140mm as exhaust in push config

All that with that modded part on top of the case (sealed part) and hopefully without air pockets...


What do you think guys?

Do you know the part number for the led strip with magnets, does it differ from the original with tape?

Just ordered a Pro M Acrylic (2 fans included), I will add 2 bitfenix spectres (white leds) at the top (exhaust), can't wait =)
(I own a FT05 atm but it's too small for me, and I have no window)

I am not sure of the part number but I believe newegg and amazon are no longer selling the old version that had the sticky tape. I had to wait 3 weeks for the order to come through on amazon because I think they were redoing the whole stock for the new version. As soon as mine shipped from amazon, it went back in stock on newegg. So you are safe to buy from both these vendors. Its a great strip though.
