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?
A 240 radiator will fit top, bottom or front.
Do you need all the HDD capacity? If not you could remove the bottom 3x HDD cage and put it in the bottom.

just noticed that in the primo the GPU backplate get very hot as there is very little airflow around the gpu. I had a corsair 500R with a huge sidefan which brought air to the GPU

Wow looks like Newegg got the Luxe cases in and both white and black are sold out completely within the first hour and a half of of being released. So now I either wait for a new shipment or order directly from their site with a 20 shipping charged thinking.gif

they aren't sold out. it said that as soon as they went up. the case hasn't reached American soil yet.

Hi, I am having trouble deciding the layout of my water cooling loop which I will have in an upcoming build in an enthoo luxe.

I will have a 280 rad at the front (Intake), 140 rad at the back (exhaust), and a 360 rad at the top (exhaust)

Parts which need to be cooled:

Processor
Graphics card (might eventually go for two in SLI)
Motherboard (asus maximus vii formula)

So yeah, not sure wether to go: reservoir>pump>gpu>rad>cpu>rad>motherboard>rad>reservoir

Or a completely different layout

I am also not sure wether to mount the reservoir by the front of the case, or at the back.

And, should I go for flexible tubing, or acrylic? is the only difference aesthetics?

in stock configuration the case can't support a 280 rad in the front. can't say what's the best layout, as for tubing, acrylic looks better, but it's brittle and could break if the pc moves (like in a car), falls over or if something bangs into it with alot of force.

Hmm... I thought it could, someone in this thread, a couple of hundred pages ago said it could fit a thin 280 rad with fans in the front, or maybe it was a 240

either they were talking about the Enthoo Primo or they said 240 rad. it does hold two 140 mm fans, so it's likely not completely impossible, but spacing for a 280 rad in the bottom and front isn't there by design.

You cannot fit a 280 at front, I tried.
post #5170 of 18701
280 on bottom only but be aware that you need to make sure of the width of the rad.
