Oh yeah, I had both mine break and so have others here too. In my case I'm pretty sure I broke mine by removing the front of the case without removing the air filter panel from it first. Seems those clicky-things can't handle the abrupt popping loose of the front panel and they get stripped out when the front filter panel pops straight out without pushing it in first.

I had to contact Phanteks support and get them to send me two new push-click connectors. They are easy to replace. In the meantime I managed to use a small piece of 3M double-sided tape (tape of the gods) to hold that panel in place until the replacements arrived.

I really wish Phanteks would sell them separately - or I knew where to get them elsewhere - as I no longer have any faith that I'm not going to have more of those things fail on me again in the future. I'd like to stockpile at least 6 of them.

EDIT
I think I may have found them, but I'm not sure which ones ...

There's a few there that look like it, apparently different sized, but doesn't appear to be enough specs info to be able to tell. Anyone able to spot which might be the correct one?

Good point.

I gave a cursory look around amazon and ebay and didn't see any really inexpensive pumps like that though, at least not less than a ~$35 DDC from BMaverick or $10-20 for a drill pump w/ barbs. If you know of any really cheap external pumps like that please do share. wink.gif

I did run into one of these. Might something like this work? ...

The biggest challenge is resisting the urge to pull the filter panel off instead of pushing hard enough for it to click loose and fall open. The pressure required to get them to release is too much... so peeps pull as hard as they pushed and "snap" latch breaks.

gordonfo,
That is one beautiful build! thumb.gif

The lighting is very nice. Looks like you notched out a bit at the bottom of side panel for lights to show thru?

Really like it!

Raising case will help airflow to the bottom. Stock bottom only has vent area about the same as a single 120mm fan. wink.gif Several of us are using castor bases both for ease of movement and increased airflow. Where are you located?

Hey guys,

long time lurker, first time poster here. I just received my Enthoo Primo today. I'm blown away. It's huge thumb.gif
I'm planning on building a custom waterloop inside it to cool my i5-3570K and EVGA GTX670 FTW Signature 2. Right now I plan on the following: Aquacomputer Eheim 1046 on the Pump Bracket --> CPU --> GPU --> 4*120mm Monsta Radiator in the bottom --> 2* 5 1/2" Bayreservoir --> Pump. Is anyone having a similar built. I'm not sure about clearance issues with the Bayres.
Thank for your input!

Good point.


I went to the link and ask what the dimensions were, I will post the response if I get one. Mine are not currently broke, but I'm sure it won't be long.

When you find out what they are and that they work let me know and I'll add it to our FAQ. Might even start an Enthoo Primo Wiki. thumb.gif

I guess that might also be a cause, though I never tried to just pull on it nor had any problems push-clicking it. Seems to require the same amount of force as the top does to me, and haven't had any trouble with it either. What did strip mine out was removing the entire front of the case without removing the filter panel from it first. As soon as the front pops loose the filter panel went flying, and then wouldn't push-click to go back in. You can tell if your push-click things are stripped if you push them all the way in with a little screwdriver or the like and they won't stay in by themselves. If they are like that then it's time to get them replaced.

Good idea on your part. Please do let us know.

By the way, I think these are them here. The dimensions seem to agree ...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-touch-top-release-bin-lid-catch-latch-push-compatible-wit-Brabantia-Argos-30L-/301063689245?pt=UK_Home_Garden_Bathroom_Wastebaskets_Bins_PP&hash=item4618cb541d

Looks like they only ship to the UK though. sozo.gif

EDIT:
I'm pretty sure this is them also, and this seller does ship worldwide ...

Doesn't look like it costs all that much. I'm going to buy the 5 pk from this seller just to see.
