I recieved my Enthoo Primo case today, and wow, its amazing!

What do YOU guys think is the best / optimal fan setup? (on air)

The case comes with 2 front, 1 bottom, 1 rear, and 1 top. Is this enough to keep things cool?
Or should i add one more at top? Bottom?
I have removed one of the hdd boxes, so a little less obstacles for one front fan to push air to components

System specs 4770k, 780Ti

Thankfull for any reply

I have the Enthoo Pro.
I have a question. I'm planning on getting a EVGA Supernova G2 750W which is 180mm long. I have a 240mm radiator on the bottom with a 160mm long PSU installed. I don't have much space for wires at the bottom. I measured the space, I have like 4mm between the 160mm long PSU and the rad. So 180mm long PSU will fit, but I'm afraid I dont have space for connectors and wires.

Anyone here have a 180mm long PSU and 240 rad installed at bottom? Will they fit?

You'll get the good results by adding fans in the bottom... like move the one from the top to the bottom

Best results is by moving those from the bottom to the top and get better fans for the bottom.

It's enough on my Primos. I kept the stock fan arrangement and mount my single HDD in one of the upper drive bays, right below my ODD. My SSDs are mounted behind the MOBO and on the "floor" where the HDD boxes go. I was then able to completely remove the the HDD boxes giving as unrestricted airflow as I can get. That arrangement keeps my Asus 780Ti cool. I'm using a Noctua NH-D15 cooler so CPU temps are fine, too. I've toyed with the idea of adding another 140MM to the top, but I doubt it would show much improvement, so I'll most likely keep the setup I have now. Both Primos are setup the same; only the CPU, GPU, and CPU cooler (Phanteks TC-14PE) are different.

As an aside, I'm going to get two of the double SSD brackets, even though the Primo lacks the really cool mounting setup on the back of the Luxe MOBO tray. Just wanting to make things a tad neater.

I contacted Phanteks about the swing door. They said it can be removed by unscrewing the screws on the hinge on the door itself. I admit it won't be as aesthetically pleasing. But at least I can take the door and mod the door with a window. They referred me to Bill Owen at MNPCTech. They said "due to overwhelming commitments, we no longer offer custom services." But they referred me to some folks called BSMODs. I emailed them and waiting to hear back.

I contacted the folks at Performance-PCs since they are close to me in Florida. They said since they don't carry the Phanteks brand cases they have no idea if they can do it. They asked if it was metal and from what I read, I told them it was brushed aluminum. So naturally they said nope; don't have the equipment and referred me to a CNC shop.

I am not sure, that is a good question. Check out Bill Owen's video on the Phanteks Enthoo Pro at about minute 15 he talks about floor radiator mounting. I am not sure how many extra connectors the 750 G2 has, but the 850 G2 has a ton, and you would probably be able to get it all to work if you are creative with your wiring and the type of fittings you use.

Hopefully someone else can reply back with a definitive answer because I am curious as well.

I attempted this when I got it, it can be done but the cables will be smashed (not a huge deal). The concerning part is the amount of stress put on the radiator itself.

One thing that I did do was put fans on the BOTTOM of the case, however they obviously don't get good airflow.

I have the EVGA 1300 G2. Should also be noted, I have since received the sleeved cable kit from EVGA, this should allow for just a hair more room. Might try again to stuff a 240 down there sometime... (Phrasing lol)

I have a question regarding the Enthoo Pro.

I am going to forgo the full custom loop for now, maybe sometime in the future. In the meantime I am going the G10 route.

The question I have is, I am wondering if a 240mm radiator will fit on the hard drive cage once the PSU shroud is removed?

That.would depend on how long your GFX card and PSU is, but EVEN if there is enough room I would strongly recommend not to do so because that is counterproductive for a rad to mound there due to insufficient air flow.

The PSU isn't the issue once the shroud is removed, there is plenty of room with a 180mm PSU.

My GPU is the EVGA GTX 780 SC w/ ACX Cooler, but I will be installing a G10 to use with the aforementioned 240mm radiator.
