Sorry off topic.
Thanks for the reply on the Egg, fit and finish review, of this case, thought this case was fairly new, I didn't think (as usual) that many owned it.

Enthoo Primo review by Jesse on theMODZOO

FAQ
** Kindly donated by user jassilamba (Jesse on theMODZOO) **

I have been getting questions all over the place, so I decided to take them all and put them in one place. If you have a question on this case, leave a comment and I will get it added in here.

What is the max clearance for a radiator installed in the top panel?
- The case has a clearance of 70mm for mounting a radiator in the roof. The mounts are offset by ~54mm so installing a 60mm (120mm series) radiator in push pull should not be an issue. As long as you do not have anything taller than 53mm on the motherboard (including ram), you can even install a 480mm monsta radiator in push pull. The X79 Dark, and G-Skill ram CAN be used with a monsta rad in push pull.

What is the space between the top of the case, and the top of the top 5.25" drive bay?
- The space from the top of the case to the top of the top 5.25" drive bay is 55mm or 2.16 inches. A single drive bay is 41.3mm tall, so 55+41 = 96mm. That is enough space to mount a 45mm or a 60mm rad in push pull and only loose the top drive bay.

Dont forget the fittings if you have them facing the front as they might take more space and.

What is the max clearance for installing a radiator in the front with the HDD cages in place?
- You have 45mm of space before you will hit the HDD cages. A XT 45 will fit, but it will be a very close fit, you can expect the HDD cage to rub a little against the rad.

Can I install a 420mm radiator in the bottom of the case?
- Depends on how comfortable you are with modding. In order to fit a 420mm radiator in the bottom you would have to modify the panel that conceals the HDD cages, and the drive bays. You would also have to use 120mm fans with 140mm to 120mm adapters. If you do not want to use adapters, you will have to drill holes in the bottom for 140mm fan mounting.

Can I fit a 140mm series, 60mm radiator in the roof of the case in push/pull?
- No, a 140mm series rad in 60mm will be too close to the motherboard heatsinks and the fans will come in the way. Users might be able to use a shroud or a 140mm to 120mm fan adapter on the 140mm rad and use 120mm fans.

Can I fit a 120mm series, 60mm thick radiator in the roof of the case in push/pull?
- Yes, the only things that will come in the way are if you are using some ultra-high profile RAM like the corsair dominator. The case has a clearance of 70mm on the inside, and the radiator mounts are offset a bit. Some motherboards might have issues with VRM water blocks and having a 120mm rad in push pull.

Can I install a 240mm radiator in the front with both the drive cages in place?
- Yes, you can, but one issue you will run into is routing the tubes. The only way to do that would be is to remove the bottom HDD cage mount (held in place with 2 thumb screws). Once that is removed you get about 1.25” of space opened up at the bottom. The drive cages would have to be hung from the top and you can route your tubing from the bottom of both the drive cages.

Can I install 2 PSUs in the Enthoo Primo and still use the bottom of the case for a 480mm radiator?
- Yes, you can easily do that, as seen in the picture below you would just have to modify the bottom of the case a bit. Either cut the marked part off, or bend it back straight. I would suggest using some Velcro straps to hold the PSU down. A 90 degree angled cable will make the job easier.

Can I fit a fat Monsta radiator in push pull with some fan shrouds, and keep the top HDD cage?
- Yes, the bottom of the case offers almost 160mm of space before you will hit the bottom of the HDD cage.

Can I fit a 280mm radiator in the front of the case?
- If you are handy with a dremel yes you can. You would need to modify the 5.25” drive bay to allow for the length of a 280mm radiator.

Does anyone know if a 480 rad in the bottom will fit with the upper section of the HDD cage? Can the top section be hung without the need of the bottom section of the cage?
- Yes, it will. You have enough space to put in a monsta 480 radiator and still keep the top HDD cage.

Does anyone know if I could mount a reservoir above the GPU's? But under the top rear exhaust fan?
- Depends on the size of the reservoir you are using, there is space to mount a reservoir on the top. If you also want you cannot use the top 140mm fan and put in a 80mm in its place. That way you will enough space for a longer rad as well.
Can I remove the Pahteks badge in the bottom side of the case?
- Yes, the badge is held in place by 4 acorn nuts and can be removed.

Can the plate in the bottom front panel be removed to help increase the airflow for the front 140mm fans?
- Yes, I started a guide on that here - Clicky Click

Can I change the LEDs from blue to a different color?
- Yes you can. The LED strip used by Phanteks is 5.5mm wide. Guide here

How many fans can I install on the included PWM fan hub?
- Out of the box, you can install 8 3-pin fans. The the hub is a PWM to 6 fan, and the case comes with two 3 pin fan splitters, allowing you a total of 8 fans out of the box.
From the manual
"PWM hub will enable PWM function to 3-pin fans. Fan 1 can only be connected to one fan and cannot be split. Fan 2 - Fan 6 can
be split to multiple fans. Total of 11 fans can be connected to the PWM hub. All PWM functions will be controlled by fan 1."

How wide is the opening in the 5.25" drive bays for routing tubes?
- The opening is 1" wide, routing the thickest of the tubing will not be an issue.

How much room between front door and 5.25" bay grill?
- Less than 5mm (4.82mm on digital caliper). *doyll

Just got in two more phanteks fans. Got the ones with the LED's... Just wanted to chime in and say how awesome these are. Absolutely love the quality of every aspect of them. I know it's been mentioned before, but they have rubber on the edges where the included case fans do not. Doesn't make any difference to me, I still like them.

I've never been a fan (pun intended) of fans with LEDs, but the Phanteks do look great. I'm seriously considering installing two blue LEDs in the front to compliment the blue & white cable sleaving inside.

I'm the same, rather have the case lot up from inside showing the fans, pulled all mine out even though they are really good fans :/

Really like your build, Liquid! You did the same thing I did with the carbon fiber wrap on the inner wall/panel. Looks good. I need to find some other places to add some gold CF accents.

Sorry for the terrible pics

Great minds smile.gif

I had to do somthing with that window as its a massive waste, so some vinyl wrap and a flow meter fit perfect smile.gif

Your build looks really good, if you want more gold then the top of the res bracket works as I have done that and put a red temp sensors in there

Hi guys,

I have decided to build my rig and then watercool it straight away. I will be cooling a 4670k and an Asus 780. I plan to add another 780 later down the line. My focus right now is silence as I only game at 1080p and will get a 1600p monitor soon. My question is, do you think a 60mm 420 rad and a 60mm 280 rad will sufficiently cool that cpu and eventually two 780s?

I should imagin so, I have 480 + 240 and my CPU will be overclocked to 4.8/5Ghz and my GPU's will be running a custom BIOS and over volted, think you have more Sq mm of rad space as well
