No...the pins are ALREADY on the square side

That's the way it should be then. That goes to any LED/something that needs 12 v and gives you a switch.
post #903 of 18642
Now that I have some time, thought I would share some more thoughts on this case.

1. I have both the XSPC dual bay res for D5 single and an xspc tank reservoir. I initially started with the bay res as I thought it would be best for filling/bleeding. I quickly found it was leaking - seems many have had this problem. I also found it was rather noisy and vibration was a bit much to me. So I was able to mount the tank reservoir on the pump base where the lower drive cage goes and vibration has improved significantly.

2. Filter quality - I see the filter quality isn't the best. On the bottom two filters, both have holes in them. Not a huge deal really, just wish it was a little better.

3. As JackNaylorPE noted earlier, when I was initially preparing the case I noticed on the bottom where the drive cages were the paint was scratched. Again not a huge deal, just something to note.

4. Completely my fault, but somehow I messed one of the fans up. I think I dropped something on it while it was running and knocked it off balance so now it has a slight noise to it.

5. Does anyone else's case creak? I am noticing while playing bf3, I hear the case creaking from time to time. I suppose this is due to the temperature changes all around plus the ambient right now is rather low, but still interesting.

6. The rear area is just a hair too small when putting the back panel on. I wish it was slightly bigger, I'm using 1/2 '' OD primoflex tubing which is very stiff. I wanted to run the inlet to the top radiator through the back which I did, however it is a very tight fit. Again not a huge deal really.

7. Power button - Wish it was on the top not the front. I have accidentally pressed it many times just trying to scoot the case around.

Edit: How does the PWM fan hub work? Is it dependant on the RPM range of the fan connected to fan 1 or is PWM control a percentage across all fans?

Edit again: Here's another picture. Note the giant Enthoo Primo lol.

I notice the windowed side panel makes noises when moving it around.

A bit back I made mention of dimensional issues ..... gonna have to collect these and get them to Phanteks for Enthoo II

That's my understanding, haven't had opportunity to test yet..... still trying to get Windows installed under UEFI on GPP RAID 0 SSDs

Im gonna repeat another one from a few pages back.... the only "ugly" wiring I have is SATA power..... had to use 4 PSU cables (2 HDS. SSD1, SSD2, Optical). Really shuda been a STA power blackplane here. Something like the Antec DF-85 .... Slide it in and its plugged in.


EDIT: OK, wifie was complaining about mess ..... Undocumented feature:

One side of the case packaging foam has a little bench on the inside to account for the right side being shorter.... if ya pay attention to that, take ya monitor box, turn it sideways (horizontal) and make sure ya miss the lil bench, the 24" monitor box (at least the Asus 144 Hz job) will just fit in by a hair and ya can store monitor box inside the Enthoo box ..... and then ..... all my component boxes fit inside Enthoo box after monitor .... Giant Seasonic PSU, KB, Nose, CPU, memory, HDs, Optical prolly get the Rads, Reservoir, pump and other odds and ends in there to

Just finishing up my build now. Noticed a couple things.

The fan controller. I hooked all my fans into this, plugged in the molex power, and then plugged the controller into my board. All the fans work fine, but I can't seem to control them from my bios or mobo software. As a result, they are all running at full speed. Makes this case extremely loud. Anyone else have this issue?

The other problem I am having is the HD audio connector doesn't seem to be working. I just took this board out of another case and the HD audio worked fine. About to send phantek a message to see how I can get this fixed. I am going to be extremely annoyed if I have to tear everything down and ship back the case for a bum audio connector. On the flip side though, I use front audio all the time (headphones and mic) and there is no way I am cool with them not working.
post #906 of 18642
Ok with the case here, measured everything out ..... figured someone else might find it useful. Basically shows where things line up in relation to MoBo and Case with:

45mm Rads in top and bottom
60mm Rads in top and bottom
80mm Rads in top and bottom

Available Heights in 5.25" Bay areas
Available Heights in 3.50" Bay areas

If ya leave the reservoir bracket w/ cover plate in, no way I could make bend with 24 pin.... MoBo manufacturers have rotated all the SATA plugs, why leave the Big USB and 24 pin sticking straight outta the board ? Can see this on budget boards where case fit is an issue but not on an enthusiast board.

Anyway here's the img file.... kinda hard to read on the forum....it's an 11 x 17 image .... I can send to anyone who wants as AutoCAD *.dwg



PDF Copy Below

EnthooDimensions.pdf 177k .pdf file

BTW, just cleaning up and moved the case .... the lil wifi antenna fell to the table and I thought "I sure am glad this MoBo came w/ that WiFi module since this machine is so portable, I'll certainly be taking it w/ me everywhere I go.

As a water cooling box..... if ya doing twin GPus, as big as it is, it seems to be a bit tight ... just a half inch here or there woulda made things better. Seems if ya using 760's the reservoir mount works ..... also looks like a 60mm works ...... but with just 71mm of space (and that's based upon air cooled GFX) I sure wish I coulda got in a 75 glass res instead of acrylic..

Suggestions welcome.

Anyone have a source for GFX card dimensions after ya take off the big air coolers and install (EK) WBs ?

On the front audio, make sure your board is set for hd audio and not ac'97.

What he said ^. The Enthoo does not support AC 97.
post #909 of 18642
No, it is HD audio. I had to fiddle with the connector for a bit, but I got it working. I think the connections had come loose inside the black plastic housing.
