I am running the fans @800RPM but you can easily run them @1200RPM and they make almost no sound. I have some experience with various fans and at these speeds Corsair fans are easily audible (both AF and SP). This is easily the level of solid noctua fans without the obvious colour drawbacks...

Thanks! I can see I'm not the only Koolance fan out there wink.gif

Point being, you really couldn't ask for better 140mm fans to be included. And they include 5. So you get 5 of arguably the best 140mm radiator fans available.

Normally I always watch Linus' stuff, he has some good videos. But this one was pretty poor. Doesn't even scratch the surface of the Primo. Had I had no idea about the Primo before I watched it, chances are I would have brushed the case to the side after watching this video and kept looking.

I agree, I think the review was skewed by his personal beliefs. Disrespect to the maker, for not taking the time to know what the future cases names were.

I also watch a lot of Linus videos (his guide was what pushed me towards watercooling in the first place) but here he is simply wrong. There is no other case on the market with included fans of such quality. Corsairs are rather poor, fractal fans can get some bearing noise at low RPM, SS fans have to be controlled manually as they can be noisy (despite great performance) and CM fans are just bad. Do you know anything that comes close to these?

Sounds about right. Linus has always been partial to Noctua and Corsair. I'm not complaining, I understand funding has to come from somewhere. I'm just saying, he goes into much greater detail for corsair cases and fans.

LinusTechTips definitely blew their review. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif Some seriously uninformed statements and negative comments about things no other reviewer had any issues with... while missing the only real problem of limited venting to bottom of case. rolleyes.gif
And even that hasn't created any real problems with 480 radiators. wink.gif

@ Gabrielzm
Jesse on TheModZoo did a tutorial on changing the LEDs. There a a couple of links to what will work. Sorry, but that's all I know.

Does anyone have a good explanation of the way the fan hub works? So I am a little unique in that I am going to use 3 aio coolers in this case. 2 Corsair h90s on my video cards and a h100i on my cpu. Now the h100i fans are controlled and powered by the pump and software. In my current case, a Thor v2, I just had the h90s fans and case fans on the cases fan controller. Given that I need separate control for the Gpu fans, is there any way to incorporate the included pwm hub or do I need to get a separate fan controller to handle the gpus and maybe let the hub do just my case fans?

Are the H90 fans 3-pin voltage control or 4-pin PWM? If they are PWM it's pretty easy to use the PWM fan header on GPU PCB.. assuming it's a normal 4-pin GPU header. Can use one on each GPU or just one for both GPUs.
Gelid PWM Adaptor Cable for VGAGelid have a mini 4-pin GPU to normal 4-pin PWM adapter

ModDIY have e a Mini 4-Pin GPU (Female) to Mini 4-Pin GPU (Male) / 4-Pin Fan (Male) Cable Splitter if you need to power a GPU fan for GPU PCB and H90

I would use Gelid PWM 1-4 Splitter to power and control H90 fans. Advantage is using PSU or power instead of GPU fan header.

It's also explained in my first sig link; "controling PWM case fans."

If you are in UK I have a mate who custom makes these.. and PWM to analog adapters for 3-pin fans. Has been selling them for about a year and a half now with no complaints.

The fans that came with the H90's are PWM. I am currently using AF140 3pin fans on the h90's instead in push/pull as the noise they make is less irritating for me than the stock corsair fans were. Given that the primo comes with 5 SP fans, I thought I might swap on 2 of those to the push location on the h90's, and use the AF140's for pull, and then case air intake.

Are the Phanteks included fans PWM or 3pin? My cards are 780 Lightnings, I'm not sure if they have standard fan connectors as they have the 3 zone fan by default. IIRC, there were 3ish fan connections per card.

I'm not in the UK sadly (was born there, but live in the states now). I'll look into these options for controlling the fans. In the end I'm going to have 3 fans per card that need to be controlled. The Kraken g10 holds a 92mm fan for VRM cooling, so I'll have that, and then 2 rad fans on the h90 per card. The 92mm fan is 3pin from what I hear (brackets will be here this week) Would be nice to be able to crank up all 3 fans per card as a set

Anyway, thanks for the links, I'm going to look into those options now. What about my case fans? Is using the included hub the way to handle those?
