A 420 definitely fits .... thickness is the only consideration .... well sorta. I have a XT45-420 installed, as do others.... it fits no problem, ....unless you use a 60mm thick rad, you do not have to put 4 / 8 pins in first on 99% of MoBos. A 60mm will work on most MoBos ..... use the drawing (see below) to determine......Jesse's build over on ModZoo was one .... had a 60mm and he took it out cause wiring was tight and replaced with 45mm.

I had it figured that a 60mm wud fit but spent about 8 seconds thinking about it .... as I figured what's the point ? A XT45-420 handles 250 watts of heat load.... A UT60-420 provides just 6 watts more at 256... hardly seemed worth the effort for 6 watts.

There are images in this thread and drawings in post No. 1000

-Clearance at top w/ 45mm rad in place clears Heart Sink. Just over 1" verttical but even if was thicker, as with 60mm thick rad, heat sink doesn't reach fan / rad in horizontal dimension


-Will be 5/8" clearance after pull fans installed.....(1-5/8") without to the 90 Elbow coming outta M6F MoBo block.


-Plenty of room to RAM .... about 2-1/4 inches ... 60mm + fan would be 0.60 inches


-420 rad set forward @ 1" to provide access to top ports to be used as fill and bleed ports.


-Front of 420


-Another shot of heat sink clearance showing HS doesn't reach rad horizontlly


-Dimension drawing .... more detailed one in Post No. 1000

BTW, a recent topic highlighted the poor air flow design in the bottom of the Enthoo Primo ...

http://www.overclock.net/t/1453784/to-high-delta/0_20

For anyone who has a rad in the bottom of the case, and you haven't elevated the case feet or put it on a base with a opening in the bottom like Doyll has been building, you really should read that topic.

It's by far the biggest shortcoming in the design of the Enthoo Primo. Thankfully it can be pretty easily addressed.

I just installed a 420 Phobya g-changer I received from a member here on the forums. Took me quite a while, had to essentially disassemble the case to get it in. Wasn't prepared for all of that... Also I don't have access to the bleed screw, although not a big deal. The phoyba g-changer is identical to the ut-60 minus the brass tubes over copper so you can see how it fits (60mm rad) with my setup:

I got the 420 in from the side tilting it with the front end high and the back end low and on its side .... sticking the top end into the 5.25 bays and then rotating it to horizontal..... As I recall that's how Jesse got his 60mm one in too..... another user in this thread slid it in from the front thru the 5.25 bays after taking the bay covers off.

Flipping the tray is not going to be possible.
You're clearly not thinking it through.

If you flip the mobo upside down the I/O ports & slots will face the front of the case. You would have to have a mirrored image of the case so that the motherboard can be accessed from the right side of the case for the tray to be able to be flipped over and have your I/O ports and expansions slots at the rear of the case.

The only way you are going to pull that off is to flip the entire case on it's top.

I totally tried that, no luck. Not sure why...

In any case it just took time, had to remove the panels, front panel, and top. Also removed the 480 rad I just installed in the bottom to get that side panel back in after installing the 420.

I didn't mean literally flip the existing motherboard tray tongue.gif I'm most likely going to see if an artisan can make one.

I'm saying that no one will be able to make you one.

What you want to do is not possible in an Enthoo Primo or a 900D unless you basically flip the entire case upside down and set it on it's roof. The extent of that kind of mod, they might as well create you an entirely new case from scratch. To have an inverted mobo ("so that the GPUs face up and the CPU faces down") requires being able to access the mobo from the right side of the case instead of the left side.

Ahh I see what you mean now but I've seen it done by members here
