goof-up


Enthoo Primo push click filter latch

Doesn't look like the "Set of 4" I was expecting.

Just an update to this. Homeclick did finally make good on the order for 3 more of the push-click latches, the same kind used for the fan filters/filter covers in the Enthoo Primo. Took quite a while and a couple screw-ups but they did finally get what I paid for sent to me. Still don't know that I'd order from them again or recommend them to anyone, at least not without caveats, but I'm no longer so peeved with them as I was that's for sure.

Secondly,I think splitting the loop isn't the best thing to do.As Jack suggested,having a 420 in push/pull up top will provide enough cooling for the CPU,mobo and RAM (Why water cool the RAM anyway?) and will provide cooling for the GPUs too.It's not only overkill to have a huge rad for that stuff,it'll probably perform better if you make a single loop with dual pumps.

Finally,are you sure that you can fit rads both at the front and the right panels?Somehow,a 45mm at the front in push/pull AND a 30mm on the right side in push seems wrong.I don't have the case yet,so I could be wrong.

This build is somewhat of a novelty dream build. Is it worth it to watercool the ram? No. But I'm pulling out all the stops this time around. The dual loop thing is mainly about aesthetics more so than anything else. At the very worst it will perform the same as a single loop. As for the four 290x, well shortly after this build I plan to upgrade to 3x1 eyefinity 4320x2560 monitor setup.

As for the rads, I'm sure they will fit. Tube routing will be tough but I'm sure it can be done.

I can respect that.The only thing I'd insist on is the 4 GPUs,but the decision isn't mine to make.

Still,this whole setup sounds drool-worthy.Do post some pictures once you build it. smile.gif

Will do, I plan to do a build log of the entire procedure. I'm very excited for this, I've built 5 watercooled PC's over the years and not once have I ever done a dual loop. To be honest, I've never had equipment to where it would make sense. At least this time I'll have enough GPUs to where it would make sense. I've been mulling over the whole fan thing I posted about earlier and I've come to a solution that will be a nice comprimise.

I'll be using an Aquaero 6 controller and setting up profiles for the GPU fans. Maybe 1000 RPM or so on idle for regular usage and couple others possibly maxing @ 2200 RPM for when I wanna game. That way I can keep the benefits of high RPM when needed and keep the noise down when it's not. So excited biggrin.gif

While I'm a confirmed "airhead", though admittedly considering a Swiftech H320 kit, I look forward to your upcoming build log. Perhaps one of these days I'll become convinced water cooling is an absolute necessity and build a custom loop. As it is now, my moderate OCing works well with the Phanteks TC14PE. Still, I am curious about water.
post #3216 of 18687
I finally got my Enthoo Primo under water after running on air for a few days. I'll post pictures once I get the case lighting and my new RAM installed. I'm loving this case. It puts my old 600T to shame. I'm happy to report that the Noiseblocker Eloops B12-2's work fantastic in pull. At least on Alphacool radiators.

Has anyone modded the drive bays to fit, let's say a 360mm rad in the front? Is this even possible?

You could easily mod the front for a 360mm rad but you might run into ventilation issues with the top 120mm fan unless you modded the front panel as well as there are no ventilation holes. I haven't seen this mod yet but it could definitely be done. You could even fit a 480mm rad in the front.

I think its easier the way i did, but i dont have a temperature reading of pre adding the 360 so i dont know how much it would impact the cooling or suffer for not having a proper mount and fresh air, but it would be the same as if you had a rad in exhaust

Mb temps are not significantly effected by having all my radiators as intake either thumb.gif

Edit: in this setup you would not sacrifice the 5,25" bays (well pretty sure i cant install disk drives, but i havent seen any one having that installed in their ep yet tongue.gif )

On the back of the bays, it's been done.... front of the bays would be a bear as the structural plate between the 3.5 and 5.25 bays would have to be cut.
