**EDIT** Leak test commenced ...
This is a bit of a bear filling up, especially on the CPU side since the pump on that side goes at 100% when you aren't in BIOS or have the PWM signal going properly. So turn it on, it drains and you turn off the machine, by the time you start filling it up, the water is draining back into the reservoir. It is a slow process but added picture with fans/RGB on. ****

SEMI-final loop approved!! Currently doing a leak test. I did have ONE fitting that was faulty and had to drain the GPU loop to fix. All looking good now. I'll add some blitz cleaner soon. I may try to adjust or snip a little off the GPU loop to get it straighter. I soaked the tubing in hot distilled water and got most of the kinks out but it is bending a little bit on some of the straight runs. We'll see.

I'm a little skeptical of the GPU loop. I'm not sure I like both tubes running over the Asus eye of the MB. I can bring one tube along the length of the radiator and then up in to the GPU. Hmm don't know.

Looking Good!!

EDIT UPDATE

Well I think I'm done with the major building!! I slapped in a few LEDs to try and get some lighting in there, but it is hard to properly light this case as for one it is so big and two my radiators are all in the way. smile.gif I'm going to have to get creative or something.

Anyway I have a few things to clean up but here it is. Sorry for the *****ty pictures but it is late and it has been a long day.

Overall I'm very happy with it, and I know I'm definitely going to have to go hard tubing at sometime in the future. wink.gif

I do love this case!

Quick two questions about the phanteks fan hubs that come with this case.

It looks like they are DC to PWM as there are 3 pins in each of them denoting DC, but the plug going to the motherboard is four pin.

So how are these hubs attached to the back? A simple adhesive? I may rip them out and put in some Corsair Commander pros in their place.... It should be easy if they are just held via adhesive. right?

They are screwed in. If I remember correctly, you need to snap off the cover and unscrew the hub from the back. I think that's how I removed mine.

So the plastic header came off and the screws are in from the middle part of the hub.. I though they might be screwed in but i thought i'd have to take my motherboard off. Now gotta figure out where the seams are on these suckers!

Double check the sides of the hub. For some reason I think I remember them having small screws on the side to uncover the hub and then unscrewing the hub from the case.

Your build looks great brighttail. I just don't have A lot of free time so mine is slowly coming along. The rgb thing is going to be interesting as I have the hue+ with extra strips and cable mods ultra wides with uv/rgb with remote control. Getting everything to work together should be fun

I previously had a Ryzen 1800x build in my Enthoo Elite case but I am now switching over to a Threadripper build with a Vega liquid cooled card. I'll be redoing most of my acrylic tubes and will post some pics in this thread when I am finished.

I really love this case, it is seriously robust and roomy for any build you can think of.

I have a dedicated server that my wife and I use for lots of games and I am thinking I might find a way of incorporating it into the Enthoo Elite case to see the full potential of this case used biggrin.gif

I've decided I'm going to need some help so I have picked up some of those new Corsair ML140 RGB fans. I post them around the case which should generate more than enough light and my hue+ can do accent lighting.
