What else you planning component wise?


Well my rig in my signature will be my main one. But since this is going to be my Hackintosh/ 8.1 rig, I am going to go a little light.

Leaning towards the: M6F, but may go for the Gigabyte UD4 all with a 4770K.

Card: nothing spectacular since I don't game an ASUS GT640

PSU: my trusty PPC 750

RAD : Alphacool UT45 at least pull hopefully push too with AP15's

Res, not sure yet

Pump either D5 with PWM or MCP35X


Are you going to WC the Crosschill on the M6F? JJ from ASUS says it is Anodized AL and is totally safe to WC.

Thinking of getting that combo too M6F and Enthoo. What size rad do you think will fit up top with the M6F.....45mm, 60mm?

There's 70mm from top of mobo to top of case, so a 45mm rad + 25mm push fan will just come right to the top of the mobo, or a 60mm rad without a push fan will still have 10mm of space, but that's leaving out the offset spacing.

According to Jesse's measurements posted in his FAQs at the end of the Enthoo Primo review at themodzoo, the mounting locations for 120mm series fans/rads are offset by 54mm from the mobo and by extension, that means that 140mm series rads will be offset by 44mm.

So, unless that heatsink or ram or anything else along the top of the mobo is taller than 54mm/44mm it shouldn't interfere with a 120mm/140mm series rad/fan combination thicker than the 70mm of clearance hanging down in front of it.

According to Jesse's FAQs, as long as nothing on your mobo is taller than 54mm, then you can fit a 120mm series monsta (80mm thick) rad in the top, with a push fan on it even. It'll just overhang the top of your mobo.

What is the max clearance for a radiator installed in the top panel?

- The case has a clearance of 70mm for mounting a radiator in the roof. The mounts are offset by ~54mm so installing a 60mm (120mm series) radiator in push pull should not be an issue. As long as you do not have anything taller than 53mm on the motherboard (including ram), you can even install a 480mm monsta radiator in push pull. The X79 Dark, and G-Skill ram CAN be used with a monsta rad in push pull.

Sooo, after all that, the only thing you'd need to know whether a fan/rad combo thicker than 70mm could fit up top is how tall the heatsink is on the M6F. I looked a bit but was unable to find an exact height, but it doesn't look to be taller than 44mm though, unless you wanted to watercool the aluminum crosschill heatsinks and in that case with fittings/hoses attached to the top of it there's probably not going to be enough room for your fan/rad to overhang the mobo much if at all.

Thanks for all the measurement info Unicron. Can't wait until you get your Phankes so you can tell me how it compares to the Cosmos 2. I was considering that before this case came along, but the space and the build on the Phankes seems too good to pass up.

Oh snap! Guess who just got an "Order Confirmation" from Newegg.... biggrin.gif

It's like Christmas morning, if Christmas were cancelled, postponed, and delayed for months and then almost didn't happen at all! wink.gif

Now I can finally get down to business with my watercooling build. smile.gif At least I won't look back and feel like I 'rushed it' and didn't think it through, right? lol

Looks like it's officially "out of stock" with no specified expected date of restock if you didn't already pre-order ages ago. I have a feeling the first wave of stock just barely covered the preorders, and the second wave of stock should be in by the time us first-wavers get our builds up and going and word of mouth starts to spread beyond our little 'early adopters' club smile.gif

Without a doubt .... been working with anodized aluminum for 20+ years in hghly corrosive environments .... have no concerns at all w/ DW but will be using Mayems coolant anyway.

As far as the fit of the top Rad.... look at the pictures here ..... 4th and 5th ones down

http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/page/articles.html/_/reviews/cases/phanteks-enthoo-primo-full-tower-review-r67?pg=6

The 4th pic is a 120mm wide by 60mm thick rad and Jesse has an issue with the heat sink writing:
Quote:
The radiator mount is offset, to help with spacing of a 60mm thick radiator in the roof. As you can see in this picture, my radiator is getting way too close to the motherboard heat sink. Installing fans on the inside is not going to be an option with the Evga x79 Dark motherboard. Please note the location of the white zip tie on the 8 pin CPU power cable, we will use it as reference point in the next picture.

In the 5th pic, he writes
Quote:
For my build I ended up using a 360mm radiator in the ceiling, the Alphacool XT 45. As you can see I have enough space to mount fans on the inside, and have the XT 45 radiator in push pull configuration. You can see the amount of space available, if you use the white zip tie from the previous picture as an example.

The M6F heat sink is 34mm high BTW and unlike Jesse's, that's flush with the edge of the MoBo....On his Dark MoBo, the heat sink is like an A-frame at the top leaving much more room.

Its for the exact reason of motherboard heatsink heights being relatively unknown when just released that I decided in the end to send my 420 ut60 back and swap it for an xt45.

I'm fairly confident that it would fit my current mobo (z87 ud5h), but I really didn't want to have to consider heatsink height when choosing my next motherboard.

The wattage difference posted a few pages back showed that there wasn't much in it at low fan speeds,

I'd rather take the hit ever so slightly and have peace of mind that whatever I buy will fit, rather than having to swap out a rad

I'm going to fit fan shrouds I think if I have any space with this mobo, as I have read that they extract a bit more from fans

sigh, i'm going to have to exchange one of my UT60's as well, and that's inside 900D... Just won't have the space for aquearo6 +dual bay res + rad.

Dont say that frown.gif still hoping ill be with the first ones to do a primo build.. Prolly not gonna happend since i first have to recieve a package from frozen and test my planned setup outside the build before starting any modding to the case

Btw, what do you guys use to make holes for the fillports from bitspower?

Hate the fact that i live in such an enthusiaist lacking society (and im studying computer science) me and two other friends from my classes who actually know whats going inside a computer tongue.gif
