A 480 in the bottom will go from front to back with just a tiny bit of space left over (to do so you will lose the bottom HDD cage). Not enough for a rad in the front.
Although you could use the included bracket to put a 240 in the side with a 480 in the bottom (at the expense of the top HDD cage also).

I'm not too worried about 3.5 drives. I only have 2 and I can get something like this...

Thanks, I'll go through the video after work.

I was wondering that too. Jesse or someone with a case would have to answer it for sure, but from the pics and videos I scoured trying to answer that myself it looked to me like a 30mm and maybe a 45mm thick rad will fit without costing you the top 5.25" bay, but that's with no fans. I'm almost positive that with push fans on most any 480 rad, except maybe a slim 30mm, is going to interfere with most anything you'd want to put in that top bay.

I might be wrong - hope I am - but I'm hoping to be running a 60mm (or at least a 45mm) thick 480 in push-pull up top, so I've already all-but kissed that top bay away for using it with anything except possibly a fan controller or something that doesn't extend very far into the bay.

EDIT:
Here's some of what I'm basing my assumptions off of. Look at this - or most any other - image of the case ...
1. Look at the 25mm thick fan installed.
2. Look at the top row of mobo standoffs which will be about ~7-10mm from edge of mobo. Jesse already noted that there is 70mm of clearance from top of mobo to top of case.I assume that means the standoffs should be approx 78-80mm from top of the case.

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

** I believe that the "~80mm" line is a tad lower looking than it really is on the front of the bays because it's measured from a point on the back of the case and the angle the picture was taken from, but for the same reasons the 25mm line should be pretty close to right on the money.

another edit: Here's another look at it. This is themodzoo's Jesse's 45mm rad up top in pull (no fans mounted below it) ..



So, given all that, what size rad (+ fan) do you think will fit without interfering with the top 5.25" bay?

Looks to me like only a 30mm rad with no push fan for sure & possibly a 30mm w/ a push fan or a 45mm rad without one ought to just barely fit.

That said, not sure anyone would want to put a 45mm rad or a 30mm rad with a push fan there (assuming they will fit) with them sitting right on top of something like a disc drive or a res blocking airflow.

Late edit:
Come to think of it, looking at that image I did up, looks like if I did go with a 60mm thick 480 in push-pull I'd likely be sacrificing my top two 5.25" drive bays. Dayum! I think I'm going to start considering that I'll be putting a 45mm thick 480 up top after all. I can deal with losing the top bay, especially if there's a possibility I'll be able to still fit an Aquaero 6 there since it doesn't extend very far into the bay at all (even less if I take a dremel to the sides of it), but I wasn't really planning on losing two.

I've been following the 750D, too, but I'm convinced the Primo is more advanced, better designed, and at the least equal to Corsair's quality. Styling and looks, though, the Enthoo Primo is the winner hands down. I'm more than willing to wait for the Primo.

I'd say all the same when comparing the Enthoo Primo to the 900D. The 750D isn't even anywhere near the same league as this case. The 900D is, but it's butt-ugly just like all Corsair cases are imho, especially if you remove any of the wide bay covers to install any drives. The 900D lacks the style and innovation of the Phanteks case in every aspect, but it does have more room. If you're needing to go tri/quad sli &/or dual PSU then the 900D would probably be a better pragmatic choice but none of the other Corsair cases offer anything the Enthoo Primo doesn't do better. You'd have to start hacking away at an 800D with a dremel to be able to fit anywhere near the rads the Phanteks case was designed to accommodate.

Honestly. if everything I want to be able to do wouldn't fit in the Enthoo Primo (which it all does and then some), I still wouldn't go for a 900D even if it cost half what Corsair wants for it. I just don't like the looks of it. I'd have to go with a Caselabs case instead, and even though they are full of awesome in every respect, when it comes down to what the case looks like, I still don't find anything by Caselabs anywhere near as appealing as the Enthoo Primo.

That is the PWM one .... it's in the description.

So with 144 stated as being the maximum allowable width ???? Seems like it just squeezes in.

OK, looking at Jesse's FAQ today......

http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/page/articles.html/_/reviews/cases/phanteks-enthoo-primo-full-tower-review-r67?pg=7

He lists 120, 240, 360, 480, 140m 280m 420 for both Top and Bottom.


And later on in the Q & A

Jesse, will a 420 fit in the bottom?

As long as its not wider than the alphacool 420, it will fit. We tested that in the first video.

So looks like I get lucky smile.gif
