Question!! So I put my HDD on the back of the optical drive bay yo get the cages out of the way and I can hear the vibration. I heard you can take the screws out of the bottom bracket that the bottom HDD cage slides into and you can attach an HDD sled onto it and seat your drive like that, has anyone tried this?? Case is the Enthoo Luxe

I have made sure everything is connected into my PSU properly and double checked all connections but it will keep doing it. Usually when I press the button to change the colour it sorts out for few minutes/hours then it changes again. Sent an email to phanteks last week but had no reply. Any ideas?

Can't be power draw can it? 850w psu, gtx980, i7 4970k and asus rog mobo.

I don't have any issue with mine. The power supply has enough power for sure. But could it be defective? The motherboard can clean the power coming in, but this little controller doesn't have anything to do it. Try taking the voltage of the power going to the controller to see if its good. But its most likely the LED controller that has the problem not your PSU.

Phanteks are usually quick at replying on their American email, if you are using the European email I've see people here complain about slow replies often. Maybe try emailing at their US office.

Maybe some little rubber gasket would eliminate the noise.
I know they make a 3.25" bracket for the back "Drop'n'Lock" HDD slot. But it's currently not listed as compatible with the Luxe (but there's enough depth behind the motherboard to install a 3.25" so I don't know why it's not compatible).

New Primo owner here. Wondering a little bit about the PWM fan hub (I'm a little dumb when it comes to fan cooling) - it says to plug it into the CPU fan header on the motherboard, but won't that make my entire case airflow dependent upon CPU temps? My CPU is on a closed loop cooler, but I have SLI 970's on air and am more concerned about the case airflow taking care of the graphics cards. Should I just do as the manual says and use the fans on the CPU header, or can anyone suggest a better solution if I want my airflow to kick on as my graphics cards heat up?

Sent an email to their US team, hopefully they will reply at some point this year! Will test the rest tomorrow. Thanks smile.gif

You could possibly split the PWM signal your video card has and then send part of that signal to the fan hub. You would use a splitter like this Mini 4 Pin GPU splitter
Another option, If you connect to the CPU header, you may still be able to control the fan speed with software, such as Speedfan, and tie the fan speed to the GPU temps that way.

Also your BIOS may have some settings for CPU header control, but it would be based on CPU temps again.

Also beware that the Phanteks fan hub isn't exactly real PWM, it takes PWM signal and converts to voltage control for fans as best I can tell and even then it is a bit iffy to get working sometimes. That's why about 70% of this thread is questions related to it....

Simplest solution may be to just set it up as it is, and then adjust the fan speed via your BIOS controls, just set it to regular/high speed. The 140mm fans from Phanteks aren't that loud so you may be fine leaving them running at a constant speed always.

I am wanting to buy a led strip for my enthoo luxe, but i am curious as to how i am going to get it past the back 140mm fan there is very little space to the left of it.

So can you get the LED strip to fit next to the 140mm fan or not?



Also a curious question about this statement:

Is this true, somewhere i doubt it considering the small size of the print plate and the use of an external power source.
Maybe it's just me being stupid tough.

Short answer,  No.  You cannot get by the 140 on the rear of case without changing planes or cutting and adding connectors there is not enough room I took a pic but it's tasking forever to upload to dropbox. I'll post it later. I actually started my run there from the 140mm fan and tucked the short extension in between the fan and case to conceal it, that does fit.

 

About the PWM hub I love it, I use it, and bought another to add fans to it. Works fantastic IMHO

personally i was thinking of doing it like this, as it would then also light up the phanteks logo nicely. (would start as low as the wires would allow me and end as low as possible.

  Your Route (Click to show)

Below is a depiction of an entire 2m run from begining to end to scale with the image of the case and the route I chose.

As mentioned getting by the 140mm fan is problematic. It would be nice to see a kit available from Phanteks to be able to cut the strip and add jumpers especially for tight turns which is unavoidable with such a long cable in this case. Although there are parts available online that I believe would work with this strip.

 

As I see it there are some problems to watch out for

#1 the glue is not strong enough to hang strip from ceiling exacerbated by tight turns that don't allow the strip to lie flat

#2 The strip must be tucked tight and the bottom side panel to allow the PSU cover to be removed and replaced otherwise stripo would be in the way so be careful in that area.

#3 As discussed getting by a 140mm rear panel mounted fan is problematic.
