The last update I heard for Primo accessories is that they will be shipping sometime next month. (Dont shoot the messenger)

@torus15 and @sparkron
I havent heard anything about LED strips being available for sale separately, but I will send the request along.

Factory's been responsible for lotta bullet holes so far I guess smile.gif ..... good news ..... looking forward to finishing build.

Methinks a "mod kit" that would allow ya to mount the multi color option like on the Luxe would be well rec'd. Add the fans in tri color and wow.... "da kids wud love it" smile.gif

Just attempting to see if anyone has resolved the cracking noise from the window and the plastic top and front? I have had the case 4 months now and summer is now over so the noises from the case are dying down.

Well having it sitting on the floor next to my desk had helped smile.gif .... but it's going to be dependent upon temp changes .... eventually the rub points will shave themselves down a bit .... most users report this diminishing over time.



To liberato87

Is that Mathems pastel red as coolant ? Keep an eye on it

This was my preparation .....

1. Hot water ..... let sit 30 minutes .... do the "shakie shakie" thing ..... rinse and repeat 3 times.

2. Connected tube to faucet, alternated hot and cold water and pulsed it to shake things loose for 30 minutes.

3. Let soak for cupla hours in baking soda solution

4. Two DW rinses

5. Let soak for cupla hours in vinegar . water solution

6. Two DW rinses

7. Assembled loop, filled with DW and ran for 30 minutes (pump only, puter not on)

6. Drained and refilled with DW, ran for a week.

7. Rinsed with DW.

8. Mixed 2 bottles of Red Pastel w/ 1.4 L DW and filled loop

9. Add 2 15 ml of red Mayems dye a month later.

Now after 6 months of usage the coolant has gotten very dark.....Mayems attributes this to inadequate cleaning though the steps taken exceed those on the bottle. They have a new cleaning kit that is supposed to prevent this from happening but I couldn't find it on FCPU or PPCs.

This was reportedly "in the works" back in November but as you can see, phanteks has been quite bizee with the white, the Luxe, the Pro and accessories and perhsps this one hasn't gotten off the back burner as yet.

At the time, it drove me nuts -- checking the Phanteks site & this thread every day, etc. In retrospect, though, I'm really glad I waited. Those 3 months seem inconsequential now, compared to having a case that I know that will grow with me for years & builds to come.


Newegg started taking order I think on October 22nd ....then pulled it so they could let those who pre-ordered from phanteks ship....I think mine arrived on the 27th ....some peeps who pre-ordered from Phantels got it day before.

What ya gonna cool with it ?

The "easy fit" is a UT60-280 on the bottom and an XT45-420 on top. This is more than enough to cool twin 780 / 780 Tis and a Haswell but w/ LGA 2011 ya may want a bit more. I say "easy" cause the 280 on the bottom fits on the little platform and isn't so high as to block the cable grommet. I almost went for the UT60 on top but after looking at Jesse's build and taking a few measurements, the UT60 on top the pull fans wuda blocked the Diagnostic LCD and a few other things meaning things like accessing the EPX cable required removing fans. The 420 works well as it allows the top ports to be used for fill and bleed ports and allows a fan controller to be placed in the top 5.25" bay. At bearable fan speeds (noise wise), you get very little performance improvement from thicker rads as you can see on martins site.

http://martinsliquidlab.org/2012/05/01/alphacool-nexxxos-st30-360-radiator/4/

With the Phanteks 1200 rpm fans, on a 360 rad .... the 60mm gets ya just 4 more watts than the 45mm .... the 45mm just 2 more watts than the 30mm. But many folks do like the beefy look of the thicker rads ..... a 86mm on bottom and 60mm on top is certainly doable. If ya don't need more than three HD bays.... a 480 on bottom is also an easy addition.

See the comments from mayhems above.

I saw the MSIs first and then went looking for the Asus.... Newegg only has the Gene and the Hero in the RoG line .... The price puts the Hero in a worse light, while it is a fine board, if MSI maintains the same feature set and Mil Spec components, I can't see picking the Hero over the GD65 for $50 more.

The WS would look real perty w/a Gold EK Block

How does one install the 120mm fans on the HDD cages?
post #3717 of 18674
I don't think you can on the cage itself. But I might be wrong. I do know that it comes with a side radiator bracket. You could use that to install a 120mm fan. it has room for two 120mm fans.
post #3718 of 18674
The sides of the HDD cages have threaded holes for 120mm fans. (edit: There's even 8 screws in the accessories box that comes with the case for screwing the fans in there)


I believe that's how Roxycon mounted the extra vertical 360 rad, to the sides of the hdd cage ...

tset fitting, mounting the 360 rad and line up the things from bottom rad to the watercooling business compartment, haha, one of the greatest things about this case is that you could hide almost everything except the motherboard and the components that physically goes on it biggrin.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)






now you should get an idea of what i mentioned about out of the ordinary in the first post tongue.gif


but don't stress out, i did my testing and it was awesome considering only one 360 in the loop rolleyes.gif

well got around to change *almost* all my fans (since the 360 and limited to 6 fans on the top rad) if i knew i was receiving the order the day after filling and bleeding i would have waited.. but it wasnt impossible to change them rolleyes.gif









By now im pretty much done.. gonna do a CPU backplate mod sometime in the future and maybe lap it..

I dont know what i should do with my ram though, considering demounting the heatsinks and paint the modules black or demount and buy myself active RAM fans since i really like that look
And ill definitely gonna order a can of black plastidip to cover the ek badges and mounting

anyways, some semi final pictures

I just ordered a white primo biggrin.gif I'd love to use the white ek res as well. From what I understand I'd have to remove the covering plate bracket cover to fit 2 Ti Classifieds (rampage black mobo)? is there any way to still mount the res? maybe with the ek uni holder thingies?
