Buttons on that look to stick out quite a bit when in the 'out' position. Are you sure they will clear the front door on the Enthoo Primo?

I guess if they don't you could always slide it back a bit further into the case & maybe have to drill new mounting holes in the sides, but that might not look so hot. I ran into the same thing with the sliding door on my Cosmo 2, a lot of 5.25" bay devices wouldn't fit if they had knobs or buttons etc that stuck out more than a couple mm's.

edit:
I've been looking at the Lamptron CW611 as a possibility for my rig, although the new Aquaero 6 is tempting too even though it's going to be more than twice the price. That, and in the topic here at OCN about the controller reps from Lamptron referred to the CW611 as the 'budget version' of other models to be released before the end of the year. Considering the CW611's features, I'm really looking forward to seeing what Lamptron will be coming out with.

Also, re: your wanting to have a separate psu. On a somewhat similar note I read in a topic somewhere recently someone saying something about a fan / pump controller of some sort that can be set to start your pump before the computer comes on and run the pump for a while after shutdown, but google fails me at the moment. For some reason I was thinking the Alphacool Heatmaster II was it, that, or the Aquaero, but looking a bit at both I'm not seeing that either can do that.

Good point Uni ..... I have had a lotta cases with front doors over the 5.25 bays and they have always had like a 1/4" space in there .... and I remembered in Jesse & Bill's video, that the filter housing on the back of the the bottom section by fans was about finger thick.

I guess that's a question for Jesse.... at least until newegg starts shipping. smile.gif

That's why I bought the case and nothing else..... well trying to decide whether to add the Mobo...... upside is I can take more measurements ...... downside is if it's bad, newegg return is dead outside the 30 day window.

And I'm still undecided on a few things ..... so thatz why order hasnt been made

Haven't decided on 770s or 780s
Don't know what reservoir will fir as yet

Twenty ???? .... I was thinking 4, maybe 6 .... but then I remembered the bottom was plastic.... once it gets here, I'll figure out what I can do.

I leave anything out .... I means besides the water cooling smile.gif ?

The other retailers "pre-ordered" too. I think that Phanteks will fill the orders they had logged before retailers established their ship date. I'm thinking Phanteks will honor their commitments to the retailers also.

Well, im a student, i cant afford a highend gaming laptop and dont really want to (i have tried some different, xps and asus ones) seems laptops have a shorter life..

And you cant really say youd choose a laptop over 2x27" screens and a desktop (almost same specs, just overclocked to 5 ghz and the watercooling) tongue.gif

Yeah, if I saw my UPS man drop any of my packages, ...... I suspect I could have gotten rid of the body but not sure what to do with that big brown truck. lol

lol, I've dragged my Cosmo 2 around more than I ever should have, and it was right at 50 lbs (23 kgs) empty and well over 100 lbs (45 kgs) now, and I haven't even filled up but half of the HDD bays or put it under water yet. I did manage to attach it on top of a short rolling drawer cabinet I made for it, so rolling it around isn't a big deal any more, but that doesn't help at all with all the times I've had to lift it. It just added another ~20 lbs or so to it. At least it does have sturdy aluminum handles on top that do make the lifting a little easier. Once I get the Enthoo Primo built its days of getting moved back and forth should come to an end for the most part. I sure hope so any way.

Do you have any pictures of your current cabinet? It sounds like a great idea, and it doubles up as providing a flat surface to raise the case up off my man-cave carpet!

They were on special. Sets of 4 casters for £3.00 delivered... and I like having some on hand for projects. Here's a caster base for an old Define R2


Not sure yet how to do the Primo base. I'm hoping not to raise it more than 30-40mm at the most. Make up a multi-wheeled base to look like the mega movers use under their super heavy loads. Maybe something like these 30mm casters:
