I freely admit that I don't pay as much attention to cable routing as I should, even in my reviews, but some of what I saw was unforgivable.

AiOs in general leave me simply shaking my head....but, that is a discussion for a different thread.

And a big thanks for posting up the LED size lying behind the trim, as well as all of the info in your FAQ. It's a huge help for prospective and soon to be owners.

AiOs have there place I believe, and I have used them in a review in the past. But for me if a case has enough space to hold a custom loop, I want to showcase that. The only time I used an AiO, and that too a swiftech H220 was in the cooler master N200 review.

And you're welcome on the FAQ mate.

Thanks both of you ciarlatano and jassilamba for the reviews....Now is the hardest part...Wait for the case to actually ship. Place my order weeks ago in a shop in Holland. All my parts are either at hand or en route and soon my system will expand from the signature (Fractal Design xl r2) to the Enthoo Primo.

On a side note. I wonder who come up with this horrible name....... Probably the best case for watercooling with the worse name to it....biggrin.gif

We have not gotten any official confirmation yet, but we over at the zoo think that its a way of saying "Enthu"siast First or "Enthu"siast One, ~ Enthoo Primoo.

But yes could have used a different name lol.

A proper review for this case would contain 3-4 gk110 chips or like sized PCB card's.

They are advertising it as a different option from 900D.

So, imo, the reviewer should be sticking as much hardware into it as humanly possible.

I'm still waiting on some one to possibly do a tri-sli dual psu review.... biggrin.gif

You are far kinder than me....I would take a Phanteks 14PE, Noctua D14 or U14S, etc. over an AiO every time....and I get a ton of flack for saying it. With the exception of the H220 (which I really don't classify with the other AiO) and NZXT X60, I just don't understand their existence. Horrid price/performance and unbearably loud with any load heavier than web surfing....and with the XSPC kits out there for ~$25 more than most of the 240mm AiOs, it just really makes no sense.

And the name? LOL....I said "Enthoo Primoo" at least five times in the video portion of that review.

Hey if you know someone who will send the hardware I will do it gladly. **** just have them send me a another Titan and the block. In my review, all the hardware is mine and I dont have that much budget, unless someone wants to buy my kidney. lol

Lol, in our first video we forgot to say the "N" in Enthoo lol...

100% agree on the AOI. Have a bunch of it at work computers and actually regret the buy. Would have done better staying with Noctuas air cooler (or Thermalrigth and Phanteeks) that I have been using for years now. Even my old 8800 GTX got a thermalrigth passive cooler that was best by 20 C that the original blower while being silent. I took the h220 this year and it is an awesome unit. But I was unlucky and have problems with two units in a row and the long RMA process (I am in Brazil) made my mind. So I decide to go fully custom liquid cooling for the first time (see sig.) and don't regret a bit. Anyway, most of those AOI would be tie in performance with the new Noctua simple tower, but the Noctua is very much silent while the AOI are not and cost half the price...So, I don't understand too all the hype around most AOI.

The hype....it's actually really strange, and kind of scary. People don't just want the AiOs to be something they aren't, their insistence is like they need them to be something they aren't. And there is no amount of factual information that they won't fail to acknowledge. Like completely ignoring the actual performance, price and noise will magically make them wonderful. I mean, I kind of get it....it is a great marketing ploy, and no one likes to admit they got duped....and we have all seen performance numbers published that we know are crock, and that certainly doesn't help.

Does anyone know if this hole is large enough to pass a 3/4" tube through?
