Great choice on the PSU. thumb.gif and everything else.

I was scared to acquire my 32gigs of TridentX 2400mhz... All has turned out well though, and they OC great.

I finally got my beautiful Enthoo Primo this morning...took my time unboxing it...I felt like a kid on christmas day. Too bad my excitement didn't last long enough, after installing everything, my M6F didn't want to post. I kept getting error code 55 (memory not install). I after a quick googled search, I found someone sugesting to check for a bent cpu pin...well, I had 3 bent pins...just my luck! Newegg didn't want to RMA because it went pass 30 days...ASUS said they would fix for 80% of the value plus $15 shipping (bent cpu pins voids their warranty) . My solution? I took the MOBO outside and went at it with a hammer! mad.gif I guess my new build would have to wait.

please tell me you didn't do that, at the least you should have tried this - http://www.overclock.net/t/1284733/guide-to-fix-bent-on-board-processor-pins-socket-lga-775-1155-etc

Damn! Maybe I should have googled that instead...sorry mate! No worries, I have another M6F coming...and a mangled M6F for spare parts...biggrin.gif

I just imagine some guy in the Asus factory intentionally jamming his thumb into every 100th motherboard. "stupid americans, fwoop"

It took me four tries to get a MVF that didn't have bent pins. 2 of them came w/o shields, third one came OPENED, missing stuff, fourth one finally sealed, with lid, nothing missing. -Newegg.

One of the primary reasons I but mine at micro center. Thank God there is one close buy.

Well my trip was cancelled so building will commence tomorrow.

Got the case and and I am so impressed I am probably going to move my main rig from my Lian Li V2120 to the Phanteks. I am only cooling a cpu but it's a 3930K which is a hot beast. I am going to do a 480mm UT45 up top and a most likely a 240mm on the side I want to mount a UT45 there also. Over the top for a cpu rig I know but I can run it from full blast to almost dead quiet because I will not be pushing it my WC system.

Question....How deep is the 240mm rad I can put in the side with push/pull? I am not using a rad that will protrude into the cage area on the bottom so there should be no interference. I want to keep the bottom fans open to blow cool area up into the case.

Also.....Jesse, how silent is this case at full blast, with a system in it?

From pgs 5 & 11 in the manual:





I have a 38" UV LED strip from Ozium that I already wired up with a molex (for my UV acrylic tubing and GeLid UV fans) and my XSPC waterblocks for my CPU & GPUs and my XSPC res came with blue leds that I plan to wire up to the fan LED connections. I don't suppose the 2-pin connections look like this do they? (hope so as I have a bunch of them already)

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

Thanks, must have missed that in the manual. That's awesome how it's pre-wired. All of the cabling is extremely nice in this case. They look like they're sleeved with normal nylon sleeving but it's sort of rubber coated. Not your typical case wiring. Very nice stuff. The built in cable management straps are SO handy as well. Love those. And again, the fans are very nice. Very high quality and quiet. The LED strip and LED fans in the front looks very sharp/professional. They're actually the nicest looking fans with LED's I've ever seen. Not your typical clear plastic with very focused LED light. Instead the white high quality plastic just glows a nice even color. And yes, the connectors are exactly what you posted. Not sure why I'm not familiar with them, but I've never done anything with internal LED's because I've never had a windowed case before.

You definitely get what you pay for in this case, and more, really. I think it's a bargain. I'm very big on attention to detail and pure quality, and this case screams quality and nice touches with details everywhere. This brand is really impressive.

I'm not sure what I want to do color wise in this case. I would love input from you guys. I was going to do an all green by replacing the LED strip on the front with green and a green internal glow with a slime green coolant. Or maybe just the green coolant and light the internals with a blue-ish white glow. But this case is too nice, I'm afraid of making it look cheap and taking the class away from it. So now I'm considering a blue-ish white glow inside (keeping blue front LED strip and fans) and using Mayhem Pastel Sunset Yellow coolant. Basically a copy of this (but probably cold cathode tubes for less concentrated light but more of a bright glow to light up the fluid). Let me know what you guys think:

Once you have the front cover off, and the top panel off, you can gently pull off the IO panel (held in place by tabs like the front and the top panel). As you lift the IO panel off you can disconnect the FAN LED assemble plug (So if you were not use the Phanteks LED fans, you can remove it and not have the wire clutter). Once out of the case, you can easily change them out to what you need them to be.

Are you sure? Is it possible you have a different version of the case? Because I'm fairly certain all of the fan led connections looked exactly like the ones in his picture. If it make any difference, I know they're the same connector that the Bitfenix Alchemy LED strips use, because that's what I installed today.
