I know that with a dremel tool, everything is possible, but would like to not start hacking up a brand new case if need be. Why? Because I have a 3 month old 650 watt psu and a 1000 watt one as well. I would like to run my mother board, R9 290 and the MCP355 off of the 1000, and everything else off of the 650. Why? Because I can I suppose.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That's pretty pointless. You could run your entire system, including "everything else" off of the 650. The 1000 is more than enough.

You have a thousand watt psu. It's your choice but doesn't make sense. Specially if it is your determining factor on picking a case. Just run the 1000 watt sell the 650 watt and get a few drinks with that money and build your awesome luxe build

Can someone point me to a place prefer a person. That does custom air brush or vinyal. I want a vinyal for my window on my pro. But also want to air brush my backplate of my 780

Thank you for your post and information. However, I am asking if anyone has mounted a 2nd PSU in the Phanteks Luxe case.

I'm certain a second PSU could be used. I could fit one in my pro, which is smaller than the Luxe (?)
Actually, I could probably fit 3 or 4 in there (drive cages removed).
Wouldn't 2 x PSU's use a lot more power than one to do the same thing? Most of them have an efficiency curve that tops out around 60-80% draw. Having just a trickle of juice flowing through each one would just be a waste of electricity.

+1 to sell one and buy a few drinks. thumb.gif

Thank you for your answer. I appreciate it. I believe, and what I have read, that the only difference between the Pro and Luxe is the lighting and the front plate.

sjg is mostly right.

The Pro and the Luxe share the exact same chassis - the steel frame and same components/layout inside for the most part. The Luxe comes with the window and psu cover, which are options with the Pro, and the Luxe comes with 2 SSD brackets to the one included with the Pro. The Luxe also has built-in RGB LED lighting and a different front and top panel. The front & top panels in the Pro are plastic with a simulated brushed aluminum finish. The Luxe top and front panels are sandblasted aluminum, and the top panel is taller allowing room for an extra layer of fans on top of the chassis under the filter cover so you can have a thicker rad or go push pull up top which you can't do in the Pro. Also the top filter in the Pro is fixed in place, while the one in the Luxe has push-click latches that make it easily removable.

there is not enough room for the tubes/fittings to get it mounted here




I think once the GPU blocks are on there will be enough room, I did modify the reservoir mount then I trimmed the plastic cover to match it came out nice.


how did you mount the photon at this casing? mind to show more picture about this?

Going to have to break down and order the Primo again I think. Was holding out for the Bitfenix Atlas but doesn't appear to happen...

Not many cases out there that are quad-290x friendly (water)... Same with thick rads in push pull. Planning on a 360 monsta in push pull at the bottom, 360 xspc RX in push pull at the top, then whatever else I can fit up front (ideally a 240 monsta in push pull but I doubt that will fit). Anyone have the MCP50x pumps in the primo?
