My case came in, there is a SLIGHT crush on the box. I'm almost afraid to open it up and see. cryingsmiley.gif


Well, I'm glad I did. There is a 2" dent in the side of the case.





At least the clips on the front panel, and everything else that I can tell ... so far ... appear to be ok.

Hopefully they can just send you a new side panel, and ask for it to be encased in bubble wrap smile.gif

Yeah, I just called up FCPU and they are having me email them the photos. I'm hoping that is all the damage. After work, I'll go over the case with a fine tooth comb and see if there is any more damage. If not, they can just send me a new side panel, and that will be good. I'm not too worried. FPCU has treated me VERY well over the years, and I have a ton of mods to do on this case in the meanwhile. biggrin.gif

Ok, so I got everything home, and pulled out the DSLR and took some real photos, and here they are ...



Such a nice pile of items to start off with. I am absolutely floored by the quality of the Phanteks Enthoo Primo case. Is is solidly built and doesn't "wrack" like some cases. The paint quality is very good and the aluminum accents are very nice. Yes it has a little bit of plastic, but it in no way feels "cheap".

Sweet, I love making the loot pile also smile.gif Mine is still sitting in the same spot as I am still waiting for the XSPC GTX 780 Ti water block to come out. I don't want to get everything all setup and then have to tear down the loop to put in the card, so I am impatiently waiting smile.gif

Sorry, I forgot last night, but I did get a picture of the modified res mount edge before I got the full loop installed (pardon the weird picture angle, I had to twist the camera to get in close enough to get the shot). As you can see, it's a rough mod, with the dremel'ed edge taped over for safety (no sharp edges!), but you literally can't see it even if you try now that everything is in (btw, it doesn't look like it in the picture because of the flash, but the tape is black, which is probably why it blends well enough that you can't see the mod at all now unless you really get down in there looking for it)



Here's another shot from after I first filled the loop, this one gives you an idea how inconspicuous that spot is if you do a very minimal mod.

Spacing there just begged for my otherwise tucked in the resource bin 360 rad so why not tongue.gif and the tape+ some left over tubing wall on the other side makes it so secure that i had to use force to get it out of the test fit position rolleyes.gif was thinking about l brackets to the rad but it isnt necessary


Edit:
Here is the most ghetto in my build


Mayhems bottle cap anti vibration mod tongue.gif
