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?

You are grossly underestimating the F140SP fans that are included with the case. They are quite, move good amounts of air, work well with the resistant intake and have very low start up speeds. The only thing you would "gain" from your plan would be a lower balance in your bank account.

those would all be a waste of money. for performance the Noctua A14 and NF-14 have the exact same airflow as the included Phanteks 140SP fans. the Fractal Venturi is a bit lower and the Be Quiet moves way less air than the others so a big downgrade. the Venturi and the NF-14's have a small to moderate advantage in static pressure, but I've no idea if or what that will translate as far as any potential gains, likely nothing.

I had thought about using longer standoffs, but wondered how the motherboard i/o shield would fit into and with the case. It seems like it would be set at an angle. Not sure if it would be enough to notice or make any difference.

Does your experience line up with and look like the pics I posted in message: http://www.overclock.net/t/1418637/official-case-phanteks-case-club-for-lovers-owners/13870#post_25286174 ?
The builder said he didn't screw down the motherboard until he had put the 24pin through the grommet hole. It looks like a very tight fit, with 1/2 of the grommets covered by the motherboard, but he said it's working for him, so...

I am hoping you can report a similar positive report as you move forward!

I haven't uploaded pictures yet, as I've only taken them with my phone (which has a partially broken camera lol)... But here's another update for you.

If you remove the backplate and LED's, it fits similarly to that RVE board from another user. I wasn't sure if my board was contacting the case with the last few solder pins on the board, so, as an extra precaution step, I added a strip of electrical tape going vertically along the edge of the motherboard that is close to that angled portion. I did it nice, and evenly, to avoid any showing from the other side of the case. There is some bending/flexing on the motherboard, but it doesn't seem too hard. If I remember correctly, the bottom right corner of an ROG P67 board I used in a Corsair 550D actually had worse bending, and I didn't insulate the board either, and it was fine. So, this combined will likely be fine. And while I did lose the side LED's, all other LED's on the board are working.

Removing the rubber grommets might help, but I don't think significantly. If anything, they're probably more useful as they add a bit of "push"/cushion off the metal frame of the case, and provided they are rubber or some kind of poly rubber composite, they should insulate any voltage the board carries through the pins on that side. For most cables, the roughly 1/2-3/4" space of useable grommet area should be enough for most cables to go through, but I'd say it's a fair bet the board needs to be removed, or loosened from standoffs, for the 24-pin cable.

I didn't check rear I/O shield alignment, as using longer standoffs on one side just seemed like a back idea. That idea felt like more flex over all on the board and probably more prone to damaging it. I don't think it would mis-align the rear I/O if you stepped out the stand offs. As in the first three on the left side were the regular height, the middle three were taller, and the right three were tallest. But, again, you're bending the board a lot more that way. Right now I'd estimate there is maybe 2-3mm most (maybe 1/8-3/16 inch?) of flex or push on the right side of my board. I've seen GPU's bend worse from sag. But if you step out the standoffs, and keep the backplate, you're looking at a solid 8-10mm maybe of bend. But it might not be as bad.

As I stated above, the board lined up basically exactly like that other user's did, just with the backplate taken off. And yeah, definitely somewhere around 1/2-3/4" of useable grommet space left.

I'll have pictures soon. Maybe I'll edit this post or just place them underneath it. As always, hoping this helps. I'm considering downgrading/downsizing to the STRIX X99, but, it's just not as cool rolleyes.gif


EDIT: I also found a way to keep the one 3.5" drive I need! There is one of their modular SSD/HDD mounts in the case basement. They make an adapter for 3.5" drives to utilize that space. So, I'll get to use a front 360mm radiator, and have my 3.5" drive still. Very excited. What WAS a little disappointing is one of my 2.5" SSD brackets came bent and with chipped paint.

Found some time today to inspect the Primo, make measures and decide what I want to do...

My idea was to mount the d5 x-res on the bottom of the case next to the 420 radiator. After measuring it seems like it should fit.

Obviously had to remove the dual 140mm bracket and the bottom hdd cage:

Then I took measurements. Placed the measuring tape ~1mm away from the front fan. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Then looked where 40.5cm was (the length of my UT60. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Placed a small Allen key there. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Placed the pump bracket on the two m3(?) holes that are in line, see above picture. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
As you can see it should fit. Will have to see when I actually place the radiator when I have all the parts I need for the loop. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


If this doesn't work. I also measured the room from my gpu to the reservoir bracket. Should even fit there.
Card is 26.6cm in length (from the pci cover to the edge of the pcb/block. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
~34cm to the 5.25" bays. This makes 7.4cm room to place my pump/res. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Res tube is around 6.3cm in diameter. Pump top is 8cm but I can place the top below the gpu easily. So I should be good either way.
My idea is that the first option is best as the reservoir bracket looks to be worse in dampening the pump vibrations. Placing the pump at the bottom of the case also makes tubing routing shorter.


What do you guys think?

Does anyone have any damage to the side panels on their black Enthoo Primo (and SE)?

I ordered two cases and both of them had the same "damage". I emailed Phantek about it but they just said they would pass it along. So, I returned the cases and waiting for a Evolv ATV TG. Really wanted the bigger case. One of the Primo SEs was unusually dirty as well. It looked like someone set the PCI plates in media blast before installing them.

Anyways, the "damage" is on the top and bottom of each side panel. It's really only visible in certain lighting but it's a cloudy haze. It looks like it's from the foam padding. I wish I could of kept it but unfortunately for me my system sits in front of a window and it made it way too noticeable.

Mine has similar "scratches" like your first picture but way less. Only if I hold it in direct light and look closely I see it. Yours is like 10 times worse.

I posted earlier though that I had damage to the front panel:


Already had contact with Phanteks and they will send me a new part.

How exactly are you going to attach the X-Res to the phantek pump bracket? The pump is longer than the rubber standoffs and the screw spacing doesn't match. I learned that the hard way biggrin.gif

Also are you saying you are going to have a 420mm rad at the bottom of the case? The bottom of the case can only do a 280 rad if you are going by 140 standards. It hits that panel that covers the bays and has the phanteks logo on it. Some 360mm rads don't even fit because it is such a tight fit. Might have misunderstood you though.

You will see when I have my parts.

The 420 is in the top. 360 will get in the bottom.

Ugh anyone else have vibration issues with the Pro-M? I hear basically everything my ears are super sensitive to fan noise and vibrations. I already fixed the small vibration noise coming from the upper fan mounting and the acrylic panel but pinpointing this front end vibration is becoming irritating as I have already tried padding a few different places. It is weird because it is not constant and usually gets louder and faster vibration before it goes silent for a few seconds then comes back slowly. I am going to try to see if it is where the DVD drive contacts the front panel next but hoping maybe someone has already gone through this and know where to put padding?

I dont suspect this is a problem for everyone it is probably due to me mounting a fan next to the GPU poorly and increasing vibrations. The fan is also running 100% always because its hooked up to the power fan slot on my motherboard which has no fan control. Just wondering if anyone else has encountered vibration issues with the front panel? Sounds like a group of flies rattling around inside the DVD drive tongue.gif.

Apparently it was the actual DVD drive itself. Maybe if I pull out the cage I can mount the drive on both sides but with the cage mounted you can only put screws on one side of the DVD drive. Even with all 4 screws in place on one side the drive still wobbles and apparently makes an annoying vibration. I am too lazy to pull the drive cage to try to fix it so I just shoved in a piece of foam and I am back to silence again smile.gif.

EDIT/UPDATE:

5 minutes later the noise started again. It actually continued while the front panel was removed for once so I got to find where it was actually coming from. Turns out the HDD mounting is what was making the noise which was also rattling the poorly mounted DVD drive. I jammed some foam in there and now, I hope, I finally got this thing quiet. foam and electrical tape everywhere but eventually the sweet sound of silence (with minimal fan noise) smile.gif.

Post thought:

Anyone have any paint brand/type suggestions for painting the interior of a case? Want it to look like the metallic blue on the Extreme4 heatsinks. Think I may paint a few fan shrouds as well.
