Do you ever find yourself reading water cooling build logs of users with other cases and the extensive mods they do to try to fit a second 360 in, on, or near their case and think to yourself "hmm, why didn't they just get a Enthoo Primo?" wink.gif

Things that make ya go hmmmmmmm.

Especially when the cost of the case is the same or more than a Primo!
Makes me laugh every time!

Do you ever check on another person's "YOLO" build on another site periodically waiting for the promised updates only to be disappointed each time?

Oh wait.... wink.gif jk

LMAO!! Oh s*#t, I got called out! lol

It's coming, I promise. I set aside time to get it all organized and uploaded last weekend, but ran into some pc trouble that was completely unrelated to the build and wasn't able to get online. Gonna try to get the pics uploaded this week. smile.gif

To me the Enthoo is like that perfect mid size SUV ....

-reasonable cost
-fits in everyone and everything I need
-has options for more stuff
-comes with extras an options usually found only on more expensive cars
-has options no one else has ....included in base price.
-good mileage .... not so big that it eats up too much desk space
-I agonized a lot about 'would everything it" but in the end it did.

But yes, Enthoo II needs another inch of depth and another 15mm or so of width.....just in case I have another kid .... (will require new, younger trophy wife mod)

Actually I compare it to the Asus Maximus X Formula ..... no, it won't do 4 x SLI or 64 GB but it has the best of everything to offer for an 2x SLI or 2x CF rig.

Well, if anyone is interested, I just got my LED's in and started to replace the stock blue ones with "Amber" (I was hoping they would be a bit more orange, but oh well).

Per the other "How To" link from another Phantek owner, I went with the NFLS-SS-x300-1/2M series 30 High Power LED Super Slim Flexible Light Strip. Unlike MOST other LED strips, this will fit in the channel where the stock blue on sits because it is only 5mm wide. You can get it in 6 different colors.

Popping the top lens off the case isn't that hard, just TAKE YOUR TIME and be GENTLE, so as to not break any of the 12 little clips off.





Here is a shot with my LED work lights on over my desk.




Here they are with the lights off.

Has anyone replaced the LED's in the stock 140mm fans? I might do that... Hate all the blue, especially when my build is now leaning towards orange.

No, but when I was still considering changing the front LED strip color I did note that it would be easy enough to turn off the fan LEDs and stick a LED light stick behind them to achieve basically the same effect without the trouble of soldering new LEDs on the fans.

If you do decide to change the fan LEDs, please take pics and let us know how it works out. I'd be curious if it's maybe less trouble than I think.

Nobody that had luck with finding RGB strips for the channel where the blue one is?
