Just look at Paul Young's build. He was able to fit a 420 Monsta rad up top in the case.

Here's a diagram illustrating the clearance for a 120mm-series (240, 360, 480) radiator in the top of the Enthoo Primo

Enthoo Primo top rad clearance

Thank you.
The manual doesn't explain the problem. I misunderstood what it says: i believe thickness problem was only for 420 and 480 rads ( i mean compatibility problems with 5.25 bay) but , indeed, it's a problem of all radiators in the top.

I'll buy rx480v3 (56+25+81mm) so i do not cover ram slots.

Bye

As I said, Silverstone has teh patent on 90 degree mobo design so of course others are not building cases with this design. . . and I did list a number of cases that are NOT bottom front to top back airflow.

You keep saying short circuit,

"A short circuit (sometimes abbreviated to short or s/c) is an electrical circuit that allows a current to travel along an unintended path, often where essentially no (or a very low) electrical impedance is encountered. The electrical opposite of a short circuit is an "open circuit", which is an infinite resistance between two nodes. It is common to misuse "short circuit" to describe any electrical malfunction, regardless of the actual problem."

There it is again! buttkick.gifbiggrin.gif

Dust is relative to environment. Your's is probably rather low dust. wink.gif

Airflow is not near as critical with water cooling as it is with air cooling. Funny, but I'm experienced users coming back to air from H2O.. seems they have decided it's not worth the cost and spending similar time optimizing a good air system give more than enough cooling. biggrin.gif

I would love to have a cooling system like your. Not so much for how cool components run but for how cool it looks. thumb.gif

I'm not quite sure how much of an indication it is, but Overclockers have the ETA date at the 28th of this March. I'm hoping that means pre-orders are coming soon.

Yeah, I wouldn't put too much trust into that site's ETA dates. A month ago Doyll posted they had it at Mar 5 ...

Oh man were people ever upset about it (especially NZXT which charged people's cards immediately after placing the order - same thing Phanteks did last year when you pre-ordered the Enthoo Primo from them before it got delayed even further. No idea if overclockers.uk is like that). Similar happened with the Lamptron CW611 release. Site's LUV taking your money early but too often when they do they seem to just make up the ETA dates.

It may well be that they are made available around then, or it may not, but I'd take any site's pre-order availability dates with a grain of salt unless/until you get some form of confirmation that comes from Phanteks, and even then I would almost expect there to be some delay beyond that.

Anyone flip the motherboard tray in their case yet? Would it be hard to do in the Primo? I'd like to do it mostly to put those sweet Aquacomputer Kryographics blocks for 290s.

Been a while since I've posted here. Any rate here's a picture of my current rig. Went UVhaby4upy.jpg

The subject has been brought up here before. I said then and now that I don't think it's even a possibility to do, because to flip the mobo tray means it will face the right side panel, and you would have to deal with things like the PSU shroud and the panel with the Enthoo Primo plate which you can't just flip. Just look at the design. It's not at all a symmetrical box-like case like a Switch 810 or other cases where an inverted mobo mod can be easy-peasy. I believe the Enthoo Primo would probably be one of the hardest if not the hardest case ever made, to be able to mod to invert the mobo. I seriously doubt it will ever be done by anyone unless you just flip the entire case upside down. Put some feet on what used to be the top and call it done.

That's quite a nice build you got there,similar to what I have in mind. May I ask what tubing you're using?

That tubing is actually the XSPC UV red/orange that came with my XSPC kit when I bought it a long time ago. It's 1/2 ID 3/4 OD. Advantage to it is that with the black lights off it looks red - my original build was red themed.

Sweet, that's what I'm looking for. Just like with chrisnyc75's build, I like the fact that under UV the red tubing looks orange instead of pink. I've seen some Primochill red tubing that turns a rather bright pink with UV and it's ooogly. The orange looks really cool and the contrast with the otherwise blue lighting is quite nice. Chris suggested Masterkleer and you said that XSPC behaves the same, so there are alternatives for what I want in case one isn't available.

Thanks dude!
