I don't think you'd run into any psu issues, even with a pump there. I have a Ek d5 revo there and I have plenty of room with the supernova 1300. I used the holes further away. Although the EK d5 revo doesn't line up completely with the mount that comes with the case it's doable without modification or vibration. In terms of the Max res size you could fit by motherboard, depends on your top rad. I have a 250ML bitspower and I don't think a bigger res would fit very well if you have a top or bottom rad that's thick/ running push and pull.

I am running pull on top push on bottom. 30mm rad on top 60mm rad on bottom. My fitting on the bottom of my res is touching the fitting from my bottom rad, and I would say there is about another 5inches of clearance to the top rad.




Yes you can mount hdd into the 5.25 drive bays if you have adapters. Some people put their pumps there but I don't see that being rather pointless as there are plenty of spots for it elsewhere.

No, why on earth would you want to see the back of the MB anyway, even if I could get it done...................................... If you wondering about the cabling, it's pretty slick, just like the front. Most of the cables are under the PSU cover. The PSU cover and all the tie downs on the case made it very easy to get everything tidy and neat. When I decide on a fluid I'm cable combing the front AND the back. I have to have someone else just to slide it around on the table so no, no pics until it's all completely combed out and perfect. Big case, monster 1200i PSU........ it weighs a lot more than I can move without busting a few more discs in my back or another vertibre frature............. sorry to disappoint.

Guess I will just have to try and fit the pump in the back. But I think I have a fan mount option available, if needed.

As for reservoir, my custom one needs about 360mm with fittings, so guess that will be impossible.

And 5.25 bays are most likely useless, if I need to mod the case to fit a 133mm wide radiator in bottom.

Why did you go with such a huge res? I believe your still in the process of ordering parts right? What are you cooling anyway? Sounds like to me your spending extra to get nothing in return. I have a 240 80mm thick in the front and I only added it since I had it laying around. My temps changed by maybe 2c. I have a 480, 280, and 240 in the box. The 5.25 bays for me fit my fan controllers and lighting stuff.

Guys, i need a bit of your help. Im selling my old 360 60mm thck rad because it wont fit in my current case, but potential buyer would like to know if he can fit it in his Enthoo Pro. Any ideas?

My specs:
Enthoo Luxe (Pro with fancy front & top panels)
Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z170
Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB
I just took some quick measurements. I have about 80mm from the top mounting surface to the top of my RAM. A 60mm rad plus fans@25mm is going to be 85mm. Any heat spreaders on the top of the board would be at risk of clearance issues as well & may have to be removed. The distance to the second drive bay is about 85mm (+/- depending on measurement location), so that would be iffy as well, but that just limits interior layout, not really a hard issue.
If his motherboard has the RAM slots lower down than mine, it might fit, but I wouldn't bet on it without actual measurements. He could do low profile fans, but that's far from ideal. He could mount his fans outside the case, but then he won't be able to put the top on. Realistically, I would say no, the 60mm is too thick in an Enthoo Pro.

Edit: Here's some pictures:

no it won't. i have a 60 mm thick 360 in my luxe, which has more vertical clearance than the pro due to the top compartment. the Pro only has 65mm of space and the mount isn't off sett at all. you can get a 60 mm thick rad in there, but no fans on it. biggrin.gif

I had it custom made for when I had the Caselabs case. I will see if I cant fit it on top of the bottom radiator instead. The pump got a small reservoir on it, so thats not an issue.

2x 480mm might be a bit too much, but with a 5930K and 2x 980Ti overclocked, so is it nice to have some extra room to turn down the fan speed.

Also, I ordered the 2x 480mm before I found out that the bottom can only handle 126mm-127mm wide radiators. You would think that would be stated on the site, as it limits quite a lot which radiators you can put in bottom, without changing the case. I mean, from EK so is it only there 26mm thick radiator that will fit.
If I didnt have it shipped in from UK, so might I have considered changing 1x 480 to 2x 240, but sites dont normally cover international shipping, so its not worth to return it.

Some people have cut the bottom half of that 5.25" side cover so that wider rads can fit in the bottom, and the top half will still allow use of the 5.25" bays.

That bottom rad width limit is one of the saddest points of the Primo IMO as well. Most people tend to use Alphacool rads in the bottom since they fit and have lots of port options and sizes available.

Also 2x 480mm rad is very common setup for the Primo, its a great setup as well I think (using it myself) tongue.gif

Yeah, I have seen that. Now I know why.
Guess I should do that along with a replacement window side panel from mnpctech.
Now I just need to find a decal or something like that to cover the 5.25 bay portion of the window side panel.
Also, I guess that will show of a reservoir on top of the bottom radiator, quite nice.

I still think its strange that its not listed in the specks, since its a big of a problem as the hight of the CPU cooler.
