You have to reach for your inner Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen smile.gif

You can offset the "gold" of the MB by strategically placing (short) yellow/orange flex led strip.
Not much, not bright, just a little accent/hue.. subtle does it... like lighting the logo/badge in the small window... or the front fans to get a "golden glow" from behind the fan cover panel...

You need to get a subdued diffuse "golden" glow somewhere away from the MB -without clashing- to make it pleasing on the eye.


Maybe bitfenix http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=72_107_1246_836 or maybe some EL wire http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=72_98&products_id=938

but .. definitely NOT a yellow CCFL in the reservoir... that will NOT look good smile.gif




Hi

ok so the res tank lights are actually UV but they dont do anything for the pipes.. so I will move them out of the res tank and position them somewhere in case.
However I have bought 2 RGB lights to connect to an aquaeous XT fan controller (which I dont have yet).
So not sure If i should really get it or not. Otherwise I could return those and just buy white lights instead for the tank.
--> really need some advise.. as I have yellow/gold from the Mobo, red from the mobo lights and the RAM and actually the pipes are blue UV ones..


I have also been thinking about getting springs to support the pipes..at least around the bends. What is your take on those? MAybe white springs :-)

with regards to the multicolored fan splitter cables for the bottom rad .. I was kinda dumb. each fan a 2 black sleeved extention cords. I could have used those and connect them to the splitter cable in the back of the case. So I will correct this and the it will look better.. for free :-)

I also need to fix the suction end of the pump.


You can see the long bend here. I should just have two 90 degree bends so the pipe that comes from the res tank goes straight in and there is no force on the pipe itself.
Any Ideas?

Hey guys! Had a few questions about the Primo... I'm quickly running out of room in my current case (HAF XM) and was planning to upgrade. I finally found Linus's and Dimitry's reviews of the entire Phantek's line and found exactly what I'm looking for thumb.gif

First, I'm sure this has been asked... But I'm thinking of using either the XSPC RX480 or AX480 at top with 120x25mm fans. I'm fairly certain it will fit either (correct me if I'm wrong). However, being a quad rad it will extend into the top most drive bay. I have an Aquaero 5 XT with a waterblock. Is clearance going to be a problem at that end of rad if I keep the Aquaero on the top bay?

Second, I've read so many laments about the front door. But, since I have the Aquaero with an LCD display, is there any way to physically remove the front door? Or has anyone modded it and added an acrylic window?

Lastly, how much space is there between the drive bay panel where the Phanteks logo plate is and the side panel itself?

Thanks!!
Jeff

i dont think this will fit. I have a 420 in the top and just seem to have enough room for a fan controller. a 480, a controller and the connectors for the watercooling is too much depending on you rad thickness.

the RX is 56mm thick and the AX is about 45mm.. mine is 45 as well:CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95

Thanks for the reply. The pic is perfect! I can probably move the controller down a bay if needs be. I could probably turn the rad around with the ports toward the back of case and forgo that 4th fan on the bottom. I'm know me... I always want to utilize as much space as possible, filling up all the bays (controller, blu-ray, maybe a 2-bay res) and drive bays (4x3TB RAID 10, 2x1TB RAID 0) biggrin.gif

Thread Starter 
Some may find these drawings of how to make an adapter or wire a PWM fan for power directly from PSU and using the motherboard PWM signal to control speed. Using the adapter is an easy way to test a 4-pin fan header and know if header s PWM or not.
Fan speed controlled, header is PWM controlled.
Fan runs full speed only , header is not PWM controlled.


As has been said many times, the Phanteks PWM hub needs a true PWM sign. With the above adapter it is easy to test fan header.

PHANTEKS FAN HUB

Lets try this one more time....
The difference between a simple fan splitter cable, a PWM cable, a PWM hub (Swiftech) & the Phanteks hub and their behavior under different BIOS settings
You will never understand how the hub works if you cant understand a simple fan splitter cable or the difference between Voltage & PWM control

NOTE: please watch how the colours of the wires are different upon its function smile.gif

Unless the ports of the rad are switched around then it could fit tongue.gif

Those responding about the fan hub, who are you responding to? Everything you guys posted has been said before, multiple times.

My issue has nothing to do with any PWM vs Voltage control issue, but rather the speeds received by the fan hub of the connected fans do not get properly communicated to the motherboard, thus causing the fans to run at around 95% all the time REGARDLESS of if I send a PWM signal to the fan hub or not.

The motherboard I have MUST receive a proper fan speed to adjust the fans, regardless of how they are controlled (PWM or voltage). This could be bypassed by something like Speedfan, however I cannot properly setup speedfan as the program never finds the fan controller chip on the board.
