Is this any good for you Doyl, I've got some on order for an idea I have to use it as a grill for a bottom rad shroud.

I have on hand or have ordered pretty much all I need to begin my Primo build. What I hadn't decided on yet was tubing/crystal and the pumps. Am still up in the air on tubing/crystal, but was leaning heavily towards D5 Varios in series. Per Jack it appears that either a pair of 35x2s or D5s that are PWMs might be a much better way to go as far as ease of controllability and keeping fan noise to a minimum.

Setup will be: pump(s) > UT60 280 > 2 x GPU in series > XT45 420 > CPU > res > pump(s)

Both radiators will be push/pull.

What pump setup would work the best or is all that is needed for this loop?

This is my first WC build. Y'all have provided me a wealth of information with your posts/photos - Thanks.

Am I going half-blind? I can read your message but that's all I can see. tongue.gif

If it is here is must be almost no airflow restriction if it can't be seen. biggrin.gif

I see! I see! biggrin.gif
Thanks.
I think that is still too restrictive.

I'm looking for something like the middle mesh below; the H4.5 T5 mesh. 3/16" hexagonal hole with 7/32" spacing which is 4.5mm hexagonal holes with 5mm spacing 1mm thick mild steel 1000x2000mm size. I've found it and am waiting for price quote. Size of 1 x 2 meters is quite large. Way more than I need. biggrin.gif

Hexagonal Hole
  • Hexagonal holes 4.5mm;
  • Staggered pitch 5mm
  • Hole: H4.5
  • Pitch: T5
  • Material Thickness (mm): 1.0
  • Open Area 81%




Problem is it's in 1 x 2 meter sheets. biggrin.gif

The bottom one, looks to me like a solid wire mesh, you can get that in sheets from good diy /garden centers it's used to put on the bottom of gates for dogs. They do it in various sizes. Another idea is, in B&Q they do those kits to make those radiator box things to cover them up, you can get all sorts of mesh there to.

The bottom one has holes are 0.2463" with hex frame 0.0276" x 0.039" thick.

The R4.5H5 is 0.177" holes with hex frame 0.02" x 0.039" thick.
Dimension: 1,00 x 1000 x 2000 mm
Perforation: H 4,5 T 5 DIN 24041
Open area: 81,00%

The R6H6.7 is 0.236" holes with hex frame 0.0276" x 0.039" thick
Dimension: 1,00 x 1000 x 2000 mm
Perforation: H 6 T 6,7 DIN 24041
Open area: 80,00%

Top grill is 190x530mm and 0.68mm thick
Front is 160x280mm

If anyone is interested I could do a group buy of a sheet and cut it into pieces 200 x 1000 mm l for about £10.00 plus post.

Will need to figure out which size mesh is best.

Hi,
I am planning my first WC build and settled on the Enthoo Primo. I don't have the case yet as I am waiting for the special editions to become available for pre-order. Since this is going to be a learning experience for me, I have decided to first try a low noise, low fan count, and Push or Pull rather than Push/'Pull. I have decided about much of the hardware. This what I want to try first:

Loop will be the CPU and GPU
Total fan count = 8x 140mm Phanteks
420 45mm radiator in top
280 60mm radiator in bottom

But I am really struggling with how I want to do the airflow.
Fan Placements = 2x front case, 1x rear case , 2x bottom radiator , and 3 fans top radiator.

So Obviously the front and bottom will be intakes and the single rear fan will be exhaust, but what I am strugging on is what to for with the airflow for the top radiator fans. Due to extreme dust in my house, I MUST HAVE positive case pressure. If I use the top radiator as exhaust, I would be at 4 intakes and 4 exhausts. But I think I would have a slightly negative case pressure due to the fact that the intakes are slightly hindered with more filters and the exhausts are going thru a thinner radiator. So this, along with the school of thought about using outside air as radiator air flow, I thought I might also use the top radiator as intake. But that just leaves one single case fan, and all of the honeycomb vents as exhaust. I have an immediate knee jerk reaction to 7 intakes and 1 exhaust but with all the honeycomb venting in this case, I am wondering if it would be ok. Below is a image I took from another forum describing the exact situation. But I was wonder if anyone in the club has done it like this with this specific case and what their experience was.
