That's for the reply guys .
So the luxe has plenty of room looking at putting a h240x and a 240mm rad in there or a Ek x240 kit or would the r5 define be better?

For that use the luxe would be fine, the reason I mentioned the r5 is because it can fit a 420mm rad in top and a 360mm in front, so as midi cases go it's able to fit as much as you can actually cram in one. Quality wise though, I would not be surprised if the luxe would be better than the r5. My Enthoo Primo certainly is finished better than my brothers R4, it's just the small things like softer metal and so on. I have no idea if the luxe is a better case once it's been mounted, but it does look to have somewhat better air flow (the downside of a sound insulated case like the R5). Both would serve you well though, and both have their merits. The R5 simply wins on the amount of large radiators it can fit, since you can potentially mount a 140mm in the back, a 420mm in the top and a 360mm in the front at the same time.

I would say that you should go by price and features (which ones you find most useful). Also there is the design feature, and while I personally love the flat front of the R5 it isn't for everyone.

it does. the define R5 is nicre for a mid tower and I wish the Pro/Luxe were as modular with the drive bays, but it's much shorter than the Luxe. even with the greater offset top mount it has quite a bit less room. either would be fine for your setup though.

a 360 nemesis black ice nearly takes up the whole top of the R5 (length) and comes close to the rear fan. a thin 420 rad can be done with rad on the rear fan, but not with a 360 in front. best you could do is cram them in with no fittings or tubing and they'd be touching.

You do know that you could run the fittings in the bottom of that front rad right? Although I would agree that the top fan would be a tight fit on a 360mm rad there. Either way, I just went from the factory site where it does mention that specifically. Still, I stand by what I said, both are great cases, but you are correct in the regard of the Luxe. I am unsure which one I would go with, even though I do really love the R5 I am to pleased with the build quality of the Primo to not at lest consider the Luxe.

Either way it's not my choice, and I only try to inform as best as I can. It is up to sav4 to consider the merits of both cases and other alternatives and choose whichever fits his plan the best. there are many things to consider and, personally I find it best to inform about all the alternatives, rather than saying this and this will work.

For the record though, the luxe will fit your needs nicely. If you want extra radiator space (without modding) though then the R5 might be a good choice, but you would loose some of the features that can be found on the luxe by doing so.

you simply cannot. 140 rear, thin 360/420 on top, 280 front is the most that can be done and would be a tight fit. I do like the case for space efficiency. you said it can hold more big rads, but it can't, it's limited to one on to or one in front. it can hold thicker top rad thanks to the huge offset. I saw a 360 monsta in the R5. though it covered most of the cpu socket and left very little room for a front 240 rad.

I saw a 360 monsta in the R5. though it covered most of the cpu socket and left very little room for a front 240 rad.

Fair enough, you may not be able to mount the 140mm in back at the same time (at least not without mounting the fan on the outside of the case). I don't see how it should be a problem to mount a 360mm in front however while at the same time having a 420 or 360 in top. I don't have any personal experience with the case, but from the looks of it there should be plenty of space for the length of the radiator in front and the fittings should be jmust as easy to mount in the bottom of the case as the top as it looks to be fitted on slits and not fixed position holes.

Either way I think this is a bit out of place as it started off of a question about a different case for another user, and I might have been somewhat reluctant to not continue arguing for my view on it tongue.gif anyways, foror the two 240mm radiators that Sav4 wants to use then the Luxe/pro would be just as good a case. If not better. Personally I don't see a reason not to go for a 360mm radiator in the top but there may be many factrors that I don't know about. so... yeah tongue.gif

from my perspective there's nothing to argue. I think the R5 is a good case in general and has great space efficiency (10/10 in this category). it's just a simple fact that it can't physically fit two triple rads in the top and front at the same time. it should be pretty clear from the video review and from khemist's posts. best setup is the longest rad you can fit in push/pull IMO. and who cares that it's a phanteks club. I'll talk about what I want in here doyll won't say a thing. cheers. biggrin.gif
