That would require two different manufacturing processes for the PCB. It would also require them to spend the dev time creating two different PCB's... Running power to the back of the card could require a totally different layout on the PCB. These things are not cheep.

I am going to get a Monsoon double bay reservoir and an Aquaero 6 and the last thing I want is them hidden behind a door. Plus the door opens to the left and that is the side with the widow I want facing me, so opening the door does no good. So does anyone have any ideas or plans on doing something with the door that might involve removing it etc?

maybe remove the door, put some plexi glass to sit flush with the rest of the front and some dim lights/leds in the case? biggrinsmiley.gif

I wonder if there's a way door could be flipped 180 so it opened the other way. thinking.gif

I would just mod the door and have the fan controller or anything else mount flush with the panel closed.

On a different note, I know I owe couple answers like is the size of a SSD same as the badge on the side, and exact space in the front of the case. I will have those answers tonight, but last night I was busy taking apart the power button so that I can change the LED color on it from blue to white (can be done easily).

You were an hour faster then me, but yh the idea of cutting the door to accomodate, in this case, 3 5,25" bays and make new mounting holes on the inside.. Probably 5 mm or so forward would be the cleanest way thumb.gif

Hey @jassilamba did you ever find out if the dominator/vengeance RAM kits would work with a 480 rad in the top in a push/pull config? Thanks!

Thanks for reminding me, I had totally forgotten. Just to make sure I still remember, we are talking about a 60mm rad correct?

Depends on how thick of a 480 rad you want to put up there and whether you want push fans or not.
A 45mm thick rad w/ 25mm push fan would be 70mm, and that's how much room there is from the top of the mobo to the top of the case, so that'll fit no problem with any mobo/ram combo. Same goes for a 60mm rad without push fans.

But, if you want 25mm thick push fans on a 60mm thick rad, you would be overhanging your board by ~15mm, in which case you would be depending on factors like how far from the top of the board the Ram is located, and on the amount of offset from the mobo the case has, and if your ram is positioned closer than 15mm from the top of your mobo then, looking at what Jessi has written, I don't think tall Ram like the dominator/vengeance will work.

From Jessi's FAQs at the end of his review at themodzoo:
Quote:
What is the max clearance for a radiator installed in the top panel?

- The case has a clearance of 70mm for mounting a radiator in the roof. The mounts are offset by ~54mm so installing a 60mm (120mm series) radiator in push pull should not be an issue. As long as you do not have anything taller than 53mm on the motherboard (including ram), you can even install a 480mm monsta radiator in push pull. The X79 Dark, and G-Skill ram CAN be used with a monsta rad in push pull.

http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/page/articles.html/_/reviews/cases/phanteks-enthoo-primo-full-tower-review-r67?pg=8

FYI:
Corsair Vengeance is listed as 52.5mm tall.
Corsair Dominator are 54mm.
http://www.corsair.com/us/support/faq/

Also, I believe the board's slots for memory will typically add ~5mm or so to the height of the ram from the mobo.

To sum it all up.
A 60mm thick rad with 25mm thick push fans is going to be very close to whether it will fit or not with taller ram, and whether or not it will fit will probably vary depending on what mobo you have.

Yea, I was looking at the 480monsta rads
