I'm going to wait a bit and see what kind of response I get. Not like I'm going to launch a lawsuit against them for a $8 part tongue.gif

I think the ethical thing to do, either way, would be to send an extra bracket to the customers who pick up on this flaw (and can prove they purchased the case) and just leave it at that. It's obviously a real problem when more than 50% of the reviews say that the specs says it comes with two, but it only comes with 1.

EDIT: I do retract my comment of telling SOCOM_HERO to just buy one. It's what I did to cover myself for my build, but I don't think it's a bad thing to follow up with an email looking for fulfillment of a "promise" per their own advertisements and spec sheets.

I'll wait for mine to show up and see how many it has. I have some spare drive caddies laying around that fit 2.5" bays into 3.5" bays. If it really bothers me I will send them an email and see if they have an explanation or can send me a drive caddy. Guess I'll find out when it gets here.

Have you tested the case with that top exhaust fan disabled? I suspect it's not actually doing anything helpful for you, & may actually hurt your thermal performance. It's so close to the intake without any heat producing components nearby, & the rest of the top panel appears to be open to the inside allowing to to mostly just recirculate air inside the case.

I think it's set as intake.

Thanks for your help so far guys. I've purchased the Primo and drilled out the drive bays. Looks good so far.

Now I need to route cables to the LED switch board, problem is that its pretty concealed up in the top left corner of the backside of the case. I've taken off all the panels that there's instruction for in the manual.

But I'm still left with this thin panel on the top corner, which has the USB ports and on/off switch etc. Is there an example anywhere on how to safely remove this? Its been skipped or brushed over in the videos I've watched. I don't think my fingers are small enough to get in there and attach anything else to that board otherwise. Also, if anyone can attest to how long the cables attached to that panel are that'd be great - don't want to damage anything when I remove it.

I've taken this apart as I painted my primo. There's 3 screws that hold the 2 circuit boards in. Two for the usb which is just a plastic chunk and the other screw holds the power reset switch in place along with the Led controller from what I can recall. You won't yank any wires out as they are plugged in and then glue gunned into place for the looser ones. The black panels which house the LED strip is held on by plastic clips. You just need to pry gently, the clips break off really easy. There is also a black out strip of a paperish material that tends to get messed up fairly easily upon disassembly.

If your going to keep the removed drive bays, you should make a panel to cover up that area, otherwise it's not visually appealling imo.

here's mine she's almost done.

The pro has about 160mm between the mobo panel and back panel.



Also the window is acrylic on the pro.

I think you mean 16mm .. about 5/8 of an inch. 160mm is more than 6 inches. tongue.gif

I don't tested this... this is one exhaust fan and I think they don't doing anything bad because hot air anyway goes up... fan speed is only 400-500rpm. I can't fit a second top fan because mounting wire of cpu cooler make contact with blades of fan... I'm very satisfied with this build, they are totally silent and cold and use primary for coding and sometimes for gaming.
sorry for bad english...

Decided to get the Phantecs RGB LED Combo kit. It evened the light out a bit in the case, but I'm probably going to stick with white lights. Not a huge fan of crazy colors. I just like seeing my sexy hardware biggrin.gif
