Enthoo Primo build , nameless for now.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So my EP arrived yesterday, and wow am I impressed, what a case it's bloody lovely. To the point of I can't bring myself to try to fit in an XL-ATX motherboard, so I'm going to try and scrape up some pennies to buy a new board, or use my Z77 kit. The OH isn't to impressed with the new board idea, as I only bought the MSI XPower a few months ago and it is no going spare, although not to waste.

So the first thing I set about doing was stripping out pretty much everything to get an eye for what needs to be done. Then the first mod, with me using a Monsta 420 on the bottom the bottom half of the side panel had to go, so go it did. I'm not sure what to do with the top half though, leave at is with the drive bay catches or remove them and whack a plate on there ? What do you guys think ?

I didn't get any pics of the bare bone case or stripped down as everyone knows what an empty case looks like. Yes the plate needs to be finished I'm just waiting for a set of good files to be delivered.

Subbed as well, but why do you have the bottom fans blowing air out? Wouldn't it be better to go with the natural flow of heat rising and have them as intake?

That's my usual way of doing things mate, but I've been reading a few different posts on various forums, and am going to try something different. I'm going to try both rads, top and bottom, and front fan/ s as intakes and the rear as outlet. My house is very dusty, down to owning a dog and me and the OH smoke ( not in the living room ) so I'm trying to get the best posative preassure I can. If it fails it's an easy fix

Nothing to add yet just waiting for the new motherboard to arrive, the MSI Z87 MPower ( I couldn't afford the max ) and a 24 pin extension, going to be sleaved in matching paracord, as I can't be bothered with the hassle of the twin cables malarky that the XFX psu's have. There is plenty of room to hide the blocks. So updates to follow.

So I've decided on a name Anthophila, the ranked name for bee, as my 35 year nickname is Stung I find it rather fitting. The build is about to be started again my new motherboard and Paracord has arrived, so Finally I can get cracking.

So I got sick of using an old battered laptop, so didn't take many pics of the build as it progressed, well none apart from what I have posted. But here is a shot of the rig nearly finished, the loop has been filled and the night of leak testing has begun. It's not a great shot my camera is flat so a phone pic will have to do.
