Do you get what I'm trying to say?

Ah yeah, once again the obvious escapes me. lol

In any case, I still think permanently mod'ing the Enthoo reservoir bracket is the most practical solution, so in the absence of any advice as to why I shouldn't do that, I think that's the route I'm going to go. Just have to figure out if I can find a pro shop to do it for me or pick up a dremel and try my luck.

And I had *SO* hoped to have a fully watercooled system up and running this weekend. It's always something, right? wink.gif

Welcome to the club. When doing the review I had pump issues after I got everything in place. So I had to tear apart the whole build, and replace the pump and the res.

Also no matter how much you plan something will always go bad.

Don't I know it! lol

I had another little mishap when I accidentally plugged the 'LED strip" molex into a psu plug, thinking the front LED strip required its own power supply. When I powered on the system for the first time it literally started smoking. Needless to say, I panicked. Fortunately, though, the adapter I used for the connection literally melted before the current could damage either the case or the psu. Really scarey moment, though. They really should label that connector more clearly, "LED strip" seems like something you should plug in since the case comes with an LED strip. It wasn't until later when I started hunting through this thread that I found a convo about that plug powering an ADDITIONAL led strip if you choose to install one.

Hopefully, I got all my "things that can and will go wrong" out of the way in stage 1 of my build and the rest will go off without a hitch. wink.gif I can dream, can't I?

If anyone fancies a quick read about my experiences on a 1st time WC build in the Primo complete with a bit of drilling, I put together my photos into a little build log over on the 'Zoo'.
I know its nothing incredible, but if it informs anyone else, then thats all good

Do you guys have any suggestions for the best 480 radiator one can put at the top of this case, I have already planned to use an 480 monsta in the bot, but I'm having some troubles deciding on the top rad. I've been thinking 'about a alphacool ut60 or an EK CoolStream 480 XTX (64mm) or an Coolgate Quad 120mm Ultimate Heat Exchanger Radiator (60mm)

If you use a xt45 in p/p and only one set of fans on the monsta you could accomodate another 360 in the middle thumb.gif

While the suggestion is very nice, I kinda need one of the HDD cages, so the 360 rad in the front wouldnt really fly for me.

Nice build log. Quality job. Looks great! thumb.gif

I got 4 hdd 2 ssd's and the 360 with ample of room tongue.gif

And my hdd's operate right above the minimum 25 degrees celsius because of the push pull from front fans and rad fans

So, yeah, I'm going to creatively rip off most of your build idea smile.gif

I do have a Swiftech H20-320 that I will stick up top, just for the CPU, that will reduce the tubing runs up to the top rad, but your Monsta and XT45 at the front are fair game thumb.gif
