Trying to build around that idea. If I was going to use a tube res I prefer the XSPC Photon with the built in pump on the bottom.

You can use a dual bay reservoir in there just fine. It has 5 5.25" external bays behind the front door, so you can easily take up 2 of them with a dual bay reservoir/pump combo.

I love the look of that dual bay reservoir from Monsoon, and was seriously considering using it, but I already had a twin D5 dual bay reservoir and pumps from XSPC that I could have used (and did use in my "Muzzle Flash" build) but I love the look of tube reservoirs and was originally going to try something "over the top" with an 880mL reservoir from Aquacomputer and one of their USB controlled D5 pumps, but ended up going with an old EK dual top and 220mL reservoir and TWO Aquacomputer USB controlled D5 pumps (see my "Muzzle Flash II: The Sniper" build).

That case can easily handle just about anything you want to throw at it ... tube reservoirs or dual bay reservoirs.

Yep I'm seeing that. I googled some stuff on it in between posts. Good looking case. I will see what's in store with NZXT and make up my mind from there. Thanks again bud for all the good info. +rep

That being said, I dont think the Primo is a bad case but it had lots of wasted space for my use. This is especially true when you factor in how large its external dimensions are. I feel like they leaned too heavy in the direction of styling over functionality. The 900D has, IMO, the opposite problem.

Fair enough, thanks for elaborating.

The reservoir mount bracket shape/size is a common complaint -- easily the most major problem with the entire design. It's easily overcome with a dremel -- though I grant that you shouldn't HAVE TO use a dremel for something so basic.

Everything else you mention I believe to be very minor concerns considering the quality and overall utility of the design. But to each his own -- that's why there are many case manufacturers out there instead of just one. smile.gif

I think you need to focus more on context than calling me out. The man said every water cooling build on this site begs to differ, after highlighting "There's almost no need for a massive case anymore." Absolutely zero reference in there about performance of big vs small cases in watercooling. Also, even if I was, I'd still be right, because even an itx build will be colder than air could get. So no, I didn't say anything by default, quit putting words in my mouth.

They said the price will be $139.

Where did they say this? And if that's true, when can I buy one? lol

EDIT: Saw the Hardware Canucks vid on it and they said it was 139.

That sounds about right. Its big brother, the Enthoo Primo, which is much bigger with more features is only $250.

That's the thing about these Phanteks cases, you get a LOT of bang for your buck. biggrin.gif

Gorgeous case. So many options for my upgrade... First NavDigitalStorm hints at releasing the Aventum case, then this comes out, and the switch 810 is already available...

Yeah, I've already got a 350D sitting here ready to do an mATX build next month...but this case alone has me thinking ATX build instead. I just want to know when it comes out, because I don't want to wait too long to build. I'm already going to suffer enough waiting to buy a monitor so I can get that Asus SWIFT. lol
