Kind of a mix of the 900d and the level 10, and priced nicely also.

At about:
* 7:30 in looking at the lower front it looks like we might be able to make it a full vent instead of the strip vent around the center section by removing the center.
* 25:00 in shows the fan hub and verifies it is PSU powered.
* 37:50 in they start the critique.

I hate video reviews but have to say they did a a very nice job. biggrin.gif

I'm looking forward to the written build review. thumb.gif

Thanks mate, glad you liked our review. I know its long, and we feel that it deserved it given all the options out there.

I'm working on the article and a proper build in this system, and that should be up on themodzoo.com sometime soon.

Another review is up at Kitguru and it delves deeper into the water cooling potentials than the Anantech review.

I agree with doyll about disliking video reviews. I do, however, enjoy reviews by Dmitry at Hardware Canucks simply because the flow is much better without a lot of "ums" and "ahs".

But the video review doyll mentioned (by modders, I think) was nothing short of SUPERB. I'm not into water cooling, but those guys answered every question I had or could imagine. I WILL definitely get the Primo.

We are modders, and our reviews are based on a modders/enthusiasts point of view.

Your welcome mate, I will let you guys know when my review article has been published, and it will feature a full custom water cooled build.

Once ready the review will be posted here - http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/page/articles.html/_/reviews/

Quick question. It looks to me the case can fit a 280 mm rad in front (specially with two 140 mm fans there by default. While Phanteks is saying just 240 mm there as default support? Can you comment on that jassilamba?
