Hello, jovkniemozna! Welcome to this site and to the owner's club! I think you're going to love the case, and those are some nice mods you've done to it. thumb.gif I can't help you with your question, but there are some very knowledgeable guys around here who will be able to.

Can't wait to see your finished build.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I thought I'd just post up in here because I couldn't find much info when i was looking for build threads with this case. I just wanted to water cool the cpu for now so went with an Alphacool NexXxos ST30 360mm rad at the top, and a 120mm rad on the exhaust too as I was struggling to hit 5ghz on my 8350 on my old 240mm rad and there's plenty of space to play with. I couldn't get away with a bigger radiator at the top with my motherboard but I suspect you could get a 45 mm radiator depending on your motherboard.

The only thing I will say is reservoir placement wasn't brilliant. The supplied bracket is useless if you're going to use a half decent graphics card as it won't clear. I ended up drilling a couple of holes and mounting the res right up against the side panel. Pump placement wasn't too difficult but I ended up making a little acrylic mount for it as the Phanteks pump mount wasn't available in the UK yet.

I also changed the fans because the supplied fans were quite loud after a bit of testing. I ended up changing the front intakes for two Noiseblocker Eloops at 1350rpm, and kept all the exhaust fans on the rads as the Eloop 800 rpm's because the choice of radiator let me use low rpm fans quite effectively.

I've only had the new build together for about 2 hours but I'm getting idle cpu temps of between 14 and 18 degrees in a 23 degree room, and on a prime 95 stress test for 45 minutes I hit a max of 51 degrees, running a modest overclock of 4.6ghz on an 8350. Hoping to push the overclock more on this build as the last one only had a 240mm rad and the temps hit 60 degrees at 4.6ghz on prime 95 so i backed off. Compared to my old case which was a Corsair 550d I have to say it's a definite improvement on airflow and temps, as well as noise due to the greater choice of fan on the intake.

Anyway here's a couple of pics, I might do a build thread at some point but I haven't got a decent camera anymore so it's phone pics only from tonight.

Pump mounting on the bottom hd tray bracket,

The pipework, sorry about the murky water but I used ice dragon nano on a test build to see if it was worth the money and it wasn't. No temp drops at all and it's a nightmare to clean out of your blocks and rads.

Hoping to get another radiator in the front and watercool the 290x lightning in the next couple of months. I didn't do it just yet as the cooler on the card is so good I felt bad ripping it straight off.
This has to be the best acrylic tubing job I've seen. thumb.gif

Thanks a lot. I am very particular and took my time measuring out each line and working out a sensible route. I wanted to get each line to bend at the same point and keep the lines as straight and uniform as possible. I'll try and get some decent pictures with a better camera because I'm really pleased with how it came out. My friend said it reminds him of the old windows 95 screensaver 3D pipes and now I can't stop seeing that everytime I look at it.

On another note ask and you shall receive. It has arrived!










I bought 2 additional fans as well for my 420mm rad




The box in mine was still held in place with a very long twist tie











From my brief exploration I am very satisfied with the case. The finish feels excelant and I will pleasantly enjoy my build progress tomorrow of the case biggrin.gif


WOW! The white Luxe looks awesome! I like it more then my white Primo. All of the Phanteks cases just seem to look so good in white. I can't help but wonder if they were designed to be white; dumb line of thinking, but they really do look so much better in white than black. I've toyed with the idea of selling my black Primo and buying a white Luxe and your unboxing pics are making that a more serious consideration. Thanks for posting!
post #5297 of 18657
got it this morning. just took some pics out of the box and next to my H440. http://imgur.com/a/j1Hdb

glad to see the accessory box was secured in the 5.25" bay. the window panel is even and nicely tinted. no cloudy spots. it does have a tiny ding on the outside though, which is impossible to photograph. gonna move my parts over and give impressions on the case later.

Coolermaster neptun 280l?

I mean, I have the space, so that's not a problem.
I will probably change the fans on the radiator too.

I looked at all those options a million times and ended up going with the H220-X from swiftech. All the latest reviews have it as the best dual 120mm AIO on the market. The best thing about it is that you can expand the loop to add more blocks and radiators when you feel like expanding. I have mine installed in my Primo, expanded to the GPU and a RX480 V3 rad. Its very very quiet and works perfectly. Look up the reviews!

Here you go, still just a picture using my phone so it's pretty awful. But you get the idea, my phanteks 200m fan was white anyway, but you can barely see either the phanteks fan or my nb's through the front grill.



Also another quick shot of the pipework line over the cpu block
