Nice build!thumb.gif
Hey, there are many of us wannabees' waiting for our case. I guess if you already have on it's kinda hard not to let you in. biggrin.gif

Components:
* GA-X58A-UD5
* i7 980
* PH-TC14PE_B (have red/orange TY-143 fans.. orange might work but don't think the red will)
* 3x 4GB Crucial Ballistix Sport
* Xonar D2X
* TX750

*Have an Asus ENGTX580 DirectCU II in a day or 2. Thing's a monster! 3 slots wide and 292mm long. Will have to remove or mod the reservoir bracket so it fits.

Definite to does:
* Caster base to match raising case 45-50mm w/ 5-10mm floor clearance. This will be fabricated with void-less 9mm Baltic birch 7 ply plywood and hopefully have grille material to match other grilles.

Possibles so far:
* Braiding the cables with paracord. What color/colors?
* Paint motherboard black ??? Not sure about that. Would be much easier than making a cover by hand.

Once case arrives possibles:
* Mod the front and top grilles. Maybe do a grill in 5.25 bay door with matching borders to lower front grille...
* Change LEDs to remote controlled RGB with lights inside case and custom base too. Maybe put LEDs behind grille strip along side of top and front instead of the stock LEDs??

All of above is open to suggestions as well as anything we can come up with for Enthoo Primo. The more ideas the better. What I don't use you or someone else will. biggrin.gif

Thanks. It's a reference GTX 780 with XSPC Razor Block. I need to notch the cable cover for it so I can use it.

Now that I have seen the bottom in HD I'm kinda worried about how effective the filters will be. It looks like a major portion of bottom air intake will come threw the back and not the 1/4 inch meshed air ports. If anyone is confused I can clarify when I'm home from dinner. Look at me posting on my phone like a ....

Things are collecting in the corner for mine when it gets here.
GA-X58A-UD5
i7 980
PH-TC14PE_B
3x 4GB Crucial Ballistix Sport
TX750

Have an Asus ENGTX580 DirectCU II in a day or 2. Thing's a monster! 3 slots wide and 292mm long. Will have to remove or mod the reservoir bracket so it fits.

Thinking about braiding the cables with paracord.

Maybe paint motherboard black ??? Not sure about that. Would be much easier than making a cover by hand.

Once case arrives will mod the front and top grilles. Maybe do a grill in bay door with matching borders to lower front grille... What do you think?

Definitely make a caster base to match to raise it up 45-50mm and clear floor by 5-10mm. Probably use same grille material around the base as on other grilles. This will dramatically improve airflow to bottom fans.

Sounds like some awesome ideas. I couldn't mod for the review, but I did have the 14PE_B in there, in case you are wondering how it looks....

Thanks!

Not that much modding really.

Loke your build. The 14TC_B looks real nice in it. Wonder what it would look like with the new PH-F140XP PWM fan carrying the black frame/white fan theme? biggrin.gif

Also thinking of possibly changing the LEDs to RGB and add some inside and in custom base too. wink.gif

I actually kicked myself that I didn't try that out....I had the fans sitting right there and it just never dawned on me. Total brain freeze on my part.

Yeah I love the look of the brushed black (anodized?) aluminum, but it's apparently very unforgiving for fingerprints. I've seen the same complaints about other cases like Lian Li's that I assume are similar to the enthoo primo.

Anyone know what's the best way to clean fingerprints off of it? A google finds suggestions like soap and water or alcohol. but no one ever seems particularly happy with anything.

I normally use automotive polish and waxes to clean my cases. So far they seem to work well for me.
