I had to take out the bottom cage for the UT60 360mm, so yeah the 480mm for sure smile.gif

Thanks again guys. I can't wait to build inside this case. @Grifftech, great photo. That's just the picture I was looking for.

No, problem. I love the Alphacools. I was originally looking at XSPC rads but the Alphacools have the extra ports and it makes it great for a drain for the loop off my bottom rad and to bleed air from the top rad when I fill it

Cool thanks. I'm currently using an Alphacool Monsta 360 rad in the front of my 600T but I'm thinking the white might look out of place in the black Enthoo Primo. I don't know what do you think?

Depends on the rest of your build tbh. This case would be sick for a black and white theme. I'm sure there have been a few of them on here.

Well I'm pretty much at this point going to be doing basically the same colour scheme as my current build which is red, white and black. I was contemplating changing to blue and black but I don't really want to be changing my Mushkin Redlines since ram has really gone up in price and they're 1866 and I have 16 gigs of it.

If I do use the Monsta, I'll pick up the white Alphacool 420 UT60.

Sounds like a plan. thumb.gif I've decided to wait until tax returns to get this case because that coincides when I need to tear apart my rig and clean everything, so might as well save myself the trouble.

I'm going ultimate fan boy on it, too. Blue and green tubing with blue or green lighting. Just have to figure out how to cover up the red on the mobo, first. I thought about painting it, but I don't want to ruin my warranty in the process.
post #2928 of 18642
Yeah I know what you mean about covering the red on your mobo. The red leds on my Maximus V, as well as my red ram, are what's stopping me from changing my colour scheme. I never thought the ROG board's colour scheme would be a hindrance. This time though I'm going full acrylic.

Yep, I agree with Jack. I have a 480 mm xt45 top, a very slim 30mm xspc 280 mm bottom and 2x 240mm (also 30 mm OCool) front. With fans in push and pull (except the top rad with only half of it in push/pull) I got like 8 degrees C of delta under heavy prime95. Hell, even running prime95 blend test and call of duty ghost at the same time ohno-smiley.gif gave me only 8 degrees C of delta (amb. temp of 30 C water temp around 37.5) with fans at 48% (GT AP15 and Phanteeks 140 mm). If I would build today I would go with a 420 xt45 on top (in fact I already order that to replace the 480 mm xt45. One additional advantage over the 480 mm (besides those cited by Jack) is that you have a little more room on the drive bays. From my measurements I think you could squeeze the fan controller on the top bay (to be confirmed yet when the parts arrived).

Oops, yes I forgot to mention that....The Reeven Six Eyes just fits, tho I eventually decided to put it in the 4th slot so i could

-for the time being remove the covers for slots 1-3 and easily move sensors around.
-Put a 140mm fan in slots 1-3 for the dog days of summer.

I want to first know how big of a 480 radiator can be put in the top of the case. I want to do push/pull with a 480 in a top. So please list the biggest I should go in height while comfortably having room with push/pull.

That's been addressed int he last twp pages.....a UT60 will fit 99% of the time..... however, on a good number of boards, the extra 15mm will make some things a bit "inconvenient"

1. If ya look at the Modzoo review, they swapped out the 60 for a 45mm , one reason being access to the 8 pin EPS cable .... I had the same issue on the Asus M6F.
2. It completely blocked access to the MPCIE combo card thingie
3. Made the access to the MoBo Water Block port a bit tight
4. Made access to CPU fan headers a bit tight
5. Blocked view of the MoBo LCD diagnostic panel
6. Blocked access to the voltage monitoring points.

See FAQ - http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/page/articles.html/_/reviews/cases/phanteks-enthoo-primo-full-tower-review-r67?pg=8

In addition, a 480 will

a. not allow you to have the ports in the front
b. not allow you to have top bleed fill ports w/ drilling out the case
c. render the top drive bay unusable
d. not allow you to use the excellent Phanteks fans that come with the case for Rad cooling

On the other hand, a 420 will allow all of those things and it will provide more cooling capacity than a 480.

XT45-480 = 245 watts in push and 296 watts in push / pull @ 1250 rpm
UT60-480 = 251 watts in push and 303 watts in push / pull @ 1250 rpm

XT45-420 = 250 watts in push and 302 watts in push / pull @ 1250 rpm
UT60-420 = 256 watts in push and 309 watts in push / pull @ 1250 rpm

So here's an interesting comparison ..... in push / pull

The UT60-480 ($120) gives ya 303 watts in push / pull and ya gotta buy 8 fans (say $15 each) for a total cost of $240 ($0.79 per watt)
The XT45-420 ($85) gives ya 302 watts in push / pull and ya only gotta buy 6 fans (say $15 each) for a total cost of $175 ($0.58 per watt)

So for the same level of cooling:

-Ya save $65 (27% per watt)
-Ya eliminate potential issues 1. thru 6. if they apply to you
-Ya eliminate problems a. thru d.

My second question is, can you put a 480 rad in the bottom? I do not want to disassemble or modify the metal piece(s) that hide the hard drive and expansion bays. If possible, I would want to fit a http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16237/ex-rad-412/Alphacool_NexXxoS_Monsta_Quad_120mm_Radiator_-_80mm_Thick.html?tl=g30c95s570#blank in the bottom and then put a 280 or something at the top for better piece of mind. Is it possible to do this? If modding is required, what kind of modding would I have to do. I wouldn't mind drilling an extra hole or whatever, but I want to keep the HDD cage metal hiding piece intact.

A Monsta fits....watch Jesse and Bill's video on Modzoo. Though s 280 + 420 is just push more than enough for twin SLI and twin CF (well maybe not 290x/290) and a Haswell at 4.6GHz. As you'll note above, extra thickness does very, very little .... your delta T will be so low that the 21C air entering even a 30mm is just about at the coolant temperature by the time it exits......extra depth when the air is already close to 30C and the water's at 31C doesn't really do much.

At 1250 rpm .....

ST30-480 - 291
XT45-480 - 296 (50% more rad for +1.7% performance increase)
UT60-480 - 303 (33% more rad for +2.4% performance increase)
Monsta-480 - 318 (43% more rad for +4.9% performance increase)

Quote:
And my third and final question is, what are my limits for a 240mm rad, in push/pull, in the front of the case. I would like to fit a thick rad, but also keep the top hard drive cage installed. Would it be possible to have that 480 rad in the bottom and the 240 in the front, or would I have to mount the 240 to the side (which isn't a problem).
I just need to know these things so I can plan out my loop and figure out how many fans needed. I would rather have push/pull going that way I could run all the fans at lower rpm. But if it is unrealistic in some situations it's not a big deal.
Thanks for any and all help![

Look at the 1st post and Jesse's FAQ on Modzoo, but as I recall no 240 in the front if you have a 480. And also no HD cages with a Rad and fans on the side mount. Also see page 22 on the manual.

But with the idea of complete overkill on the rads was to attempt to run lower fan speeds in an attempt to keep the system from sounding like a turbo diesel taking off!

Part of the idea of turning the upper radiator around was also to keep the actual loop itself smaller. Where it would be the entire distance of the case to get to the rad to about 6-7 inches at most. I really like that idea of the drain much better than cutting through the rear of the case!

But in my excitement I sorta jumped the gun and already bought the radiators.....part of the reason I ordered before thinking was all the vids I've seen showed 480's up top in push/pull like it was nothing (demo videos on newegg).

I can't get pics to load so here's a direct link:
http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d31/resetg/20140205_150545-1.jpg

Nothing wrong with overkill..... tho I'm running at a dead silent 850 rpm. Didn't even need push / pull ..... but now that the Phanteks PCBs are shipping (just opened box) .... I just might do some overkill myself smile.gif

Oh, and how did you do all of your fans? Did you link them to the back PWM controller, or did you get extenders so it could reach the PWM?

1. FrozenCPU.com for the custom cables but they have sets pre-made in red and white for Corsair ..... can also have Lutro do them.... tho FCPU sells Lutro stuff, you might have to go direct for Lutro custom cables.

http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g2/c413/s1599/list/p1/Cables-PSU_Cables-PSU_Cable_Sets-Page1.html

2. I have:

(5 soon to be 10) )Rad fans on one PCB
(5 soon to be 6) case Fans on the other PCB

I currently have 8 fans on the hub as my right side panel is off waiting for me to finish sleeving......using Fan Xpert to control them all and it works beautifully .... couldn't ask for more.

My 2nd PCB just arrived and I will be installing it right after I finish this message.

As for the sensors, I'm using the Reeven Six Eyes fan controller but I'm nit using it for fan control. Fits nicely behind the door with buttons in out position but should you have issues they "press in" to allow doors with less clearance to close. Ya might think "what a waste" not to use the thing to control speeds but FanXpert does it better than I could want ..... and no I am not using PWM control, just straight voltage control of CHA_1 and CHA_2 ...... CHA_3 will be for the 3rd PCB ..... as I eventually plan on

1. PCB-1 = (6 Fans) 3 x Phanteks SP140_BK_LED + 3 x Phanteks SP140_BK
2. PCB-1 = (4 Fans) 4 x Phanteks SP140_BK
3. PCB-1 = (6 Fans) 6 x Phanteks SP140_BK

So the 2 pin sensors go to the Controller and look like this:

Top Rad In | Bottom Rad Out
Bot Rad In | Bottom Rad Out
Ambient Air In | Case Air Out

25.3 - - - - 25.4 - - - - 19.9
25.1 - - - - 25.0 - - - - 23.2

Liked the way they stacked .... makes it easy to visualize w/ each column being for one aspect.

I think given the chance ya might prefer the Phanteks ..... 0 sound signature smile.gif ....and to my mind, as I listed above, ya lose so much flexibility with the 480

Sorry I'm just double checking before I order some radiators because sometimes what isn't officially supported can be shoe horned in without any modifications.

Yes.... not a matter of official support.... just the proverbial 5 pounds in 2 pound bag analogy. The distance between the PSU shroud and the panel with the PHANTEKS name on it is 125mm ..... Unless it's equipped with the technology that makes all of Dr. Who's stuff fit in his Tardis or what makes the stuff in wimmen's purses actually fit inside their purses, 133mm just ain't gonna fit in a 125mm space. smile.gif

Watch Jesse's video on the Primo .... I think it was the Black Ice they used .... well should say "tried to use" and it didn't fit .

125 is going to be tight, 121 is the magic number without modding, I would say that 124 would work but not sure. in my case anyway , I think you might find that each case may vary, 1 or 2 mm from case to case that's why I say 121 is the magic number

Thanks again guys. I can't wait to build inside this case. @Grifftech, great photo. That's just the picture I was looking for.

Look at the numbers ..... i think you will be happy with the AC's. The UT60 has about a 4% edge over the HL, has screw protectors, all copper, 7 ports

That was also my concern..... If ya worried about what ya gotta mod / remove and keeping as stock as possible ..... note that a 420 + 280 w/ 5 fans in push only can maintain two 780s in SLI w/ 25+% OC and 4770k at 4.6 at 8.4C delta T ..... gets up to about 9.8C with filters in and w/o raising the case off the desk...... hits 12.2C with fans at 850 max and dead silence .... and this is under stress testing .... about 2/3 of that while gaming and fans are down at 450 rpm-ish. The reason I mention is that a 420 + 280 allows for no mods, even all HD cages can remain in place......drain, fill and bleed ports w/o any case mods.....see other advantages above

Drain port access via quick-disconnect


Drain port fittings


Top port access for fill / bleed ports ... used 30mm extensions and stop plugs (12" acrylic tube riser and mini-valve)

I had everything in but the Res and decided to go with white one to break up all that black.... was gad I did.

Here's how it looks



I had considered the white but was sitting on the fence for a while..... cost difference is significant tho and the one complaint I have about the ACs is the finish..... so i woulda painted the shrouds myself after masking off the fins.
