<div class="quote-block">What are we left with? Excellent build quality, smart thermal-acoustic balance owing to the PWM-driven fan controller, good looks, esoteric design, and a high price tag. The Phanteks Enthoo Primo is a project case similar to the less expensive Corsair Carbide Air 540, but lends itself much more to watercooling. At the $249 price tag, you essentially place it as a less expensive alternative to the monstrous Corsair Obsidian 900D, and I think it compares very favorably in that respect. Unless you need fifteen hard drives, four graphics cards, and/or a dual-CPU motherboard, the Enthoo Primo is going to be a more ideal option.</div>

<div class="quote-block">Phanteks has always made some great looking CPU coolers, and it was a big surprise when they announced the Enthoo Primo. The bigger surprise was how good the case looked. Phanteks designers have implemented several amazing features. A lot of cooling options that you normally don't see in production cases. At $249.99 USD, Phanteks has set a new benchmark for the value and features in a full tower case.</div>

I have been getting questions all over the place, so I decided to take them all and put them in one place. If you have a question on this case, leave a comment and I will get it added in here.<br><br><b>What is the max clearance for a radiator installed in the top panel?</b><br>
- The case has a clearance of 70mm for mounting a radiator in the roof. The mounts are offset by ~54mm so installing a 60mm (120mm series) radiator in push pull should not be an issue. As long as you do not have anything taller than 53mm on the motherboard (including ram), you can even install a 480mm monsta radiator in push pull. The X79 Dark, and G-Skill ram CAN be used with a monsta rad in push pull.<br><br><b>What is the space between the top of the case, and the top of the top 5.25" drive bay?</b><br>
- The space from the top of the case to the top of the top 5.25" drive bay is 55mm or 2.16 inches. A single drive bay is 41.3mm tall, so 55+41 = 96mm. That is enough space to mount a 45mm or a 60mm rad in push pull and only loose the top drive bay.<br><br>
Dont forget the fittings if you have them facing the front as they might take more space and.<br><br><b>What is the max clearance for installing a radiator in the front with the HDD cages in place?</b><br>
- You have 45mm of space before you will hit the HDD cages. A XT 45 will fit, but it will be a very close fit, you can expect the HDD cage to rub a little against the rad.<br><br><b>Can I install a 420mm radiator in the bottom of the case?</b><br>
- Depends on how comfortable you are with modding. In order to fit a 420mm radiator in the bottom you would have to modify the panel that conceals the HDD cages, and the drive bays. You would also have to use 120mm fans with 140mm to 120mm adapters. If you do not want to use adapters, you will have to drill holes in the bottom for 140mm fan mounting.<br><br><b>Can I fit a 140mm series, 60mm radiator in the roof of the case in push/pull?</b><br>
- No, a 140mm series rad in 60mm will be too close to the motherboard heatsinks and the fans will come in the way. Users might be able to use a shroud or a 140mm to 120mm fan adapter on the 140mm rad and use 120mm fans.<br><br><b>Can I fit a 120mm series, 60mm thick radiator in the roof of the case in push/pull?</b><br>
- Yes, the only things that will come in the way are if you are using some ultra-high profile RAM like the corsair dominator. The case has a clearance of 70mm on the inside, and the radiator mounts are offset a bit. Some motherboards might have issues with VRM water blocks and having a 120mm rad in push pull.<br><br><b>Can I install a 240mm radiator in the front with both the drive cages in place?</b><br>
- Yes, you can, but one issue you will run into is routing the tubes. The only way to do that would be is to remove the bottom HDD cage mount (held in place with 2 thumb screws). Once that is removed you get about 1.25” of space opened up at the bottom. The drive cages would have to be hung from the top and you can route your tubing from the bottom of both the drive cages.<br><br><b>Can I install 2 PSUs in the Enthoo Primo and still use the bottom of the case for a 480mm radiator?</b><br>
- Yes, you can easily do that, as seen in the picture below you would just have to modify the bottom of the case a bit. Either cut the marked part off, or bend it back straight. I would suggest using some Velcro straps to hold the PSU down. A 90 degree angled cable will make the job easier.<br>

- Yes, the bottom of the case offers almost 160mm of space before you will hit the bottom of the HDD cage.<br><br><b>Can I fit a 280mm radiator in the front of the case?</b><br>
- If you are handy with a dremel yes you can. You would need to modify the 5.25” drive bay to allow for the length of a 280mm radiator.<br><br><b>Does anyone know if a 480 rad in the bottom will fit with the upper section of the HDD cage? Can the top section be hung without the need of the bottom section of the cage?</b><br>
- Yes, it will. You have enough space to put in a monsta 480 radiator and still keep the top HDD cage.<br><br><b>Does anyone know if I could mount a reservoir above the GPU's? But under the top rear exhaust fan?</b><br>
- Depends on the size of the reservoir you are using, there is space to mount a reservoir on the top. If you also want you cannot use the top 140mm fan and put in a 80mm in its place. That way you will enough space for a longer rad as well.<br><br><b>Can I remove the Pahteks badge in the bottom side of the case?</b><br>
- Yes, the badge is held in place by 4 acorn nuts and can be removed.<br><br><b>Can the plate in the bottom front panel be removed to help increase the airflow for the front 140mm fans?</b><br>
- Yes, I started a guide on that here:<br>
<a href="http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/865-the-primo-first-wc-enthoo-primo-build/" target="_blank">http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/865-the-primo-first-wc-enthoo-primo-build/</a><br><br><b>Can I change the LEDs from blue to a different color?</b><br>
- Yes you can. The LED strip used by Phanteks is 5.5mm wide. Guide here:<br>
<a href="http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/883-enthoo-primo-front-led-color-change/" target="_blank">http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/883-enthoo-primo-front-led-color-change/</a><br><br><b>How many fans can I install on the included PWM fan hub?</b><br>
- Out of the box, you can install 8 3-pin fans. The the hub is a PWM to 6 fan, and the case comes with two 3 pin fan splitters, allowing you a total of 8 fans out of the box.<br>
From the manual<br>
"PWM hub will enable PWM function to 3-pin fans. Fan 1 can only be connected to one fan and cannot be split. Fan 2 - Fan 6 can<br>
be split to multiple fans. Total of 11 fans can be connected to the PWM hub. All PWM functions will be controlled by fan 1."<br><br><b>How wide is the opening in the 5.25" drive bays for routing tubes?</b><br>
- The opening is 1" wide, routing the thickest of the tubing will not be an issue.<br><br><b>How much room between front door and 5.25" bay grill?</b><br>
- Less than 5mm (4.82mm on digital caliper). *doyll</div>

The PWM hub functions optimally when modulated by a PWM signal from the motherboard, which will all the greatest control range. However, not all 4-pin motherboard connectors implement the PWM signal modulation.<br><b><br>
Connecting the 4-pin to CPU_FAN</b><br>
For full PWM functionality, Phanteks' PWM hub requires users to connect the 4-pin connector to the "CPU_Fan" connector of the motherboard, because all motherboard manufacturers implements a PWM signal modulation on this connector. Connect the SATA 12V power to power the PWM hub. Not all motherboards have their CPU_Fan connector set on PWM signal modulation by default. Please consult your motherboard documentation for this matter.<br><br><b>Connecting the 4-pin to other 4-pin header (besides the CPU_Fan)</b><br>
Other 4-pon connectors can be found on modern motherboards besides the "CPU_Fan" connector (e.g. "CPU_Fan2", "CHA_FAn", "OPT_Fan"), however not all motherboard manufacturers implement a true PWM signal modulation onto these connectors. These type of 4-pin connectors modulate the RPM by voltage, which has a smaller control range compared to modulation by true PWM signal.<br><br>
The 12v SATA power cable can not be used to power the PWM hub if connecting to these types of 4-pin connectors, due to the interference with the RPM regulation by voltage (resulting in the fans running on full RPM). The PWM hub will draw it's power from the 4-pin connector, which is limited to a total device consuming 30W in total.<br><br><i>Important Note:<br>
1 motherboard connector can only read 1 RPM signal. Therefore, the motherboard will only read the RPM signal from1 device connected to FAN 1. The RPM from all other devices will be regulated according to FAN 1. Y-splitter should not be connected to FAN 1.</i></div>

<div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">What are we left with? Excellent build quality, smart thermal-acoustic balance owing to the PWM-driven fan controller, good looks, esoteric design, and a high price tag. The Phanteks Enthoo Primo is a project case similar to the less expensive Corsair Carbide Air 540, but lends itself much more to watercooling. At the $249 price tag, you essentially place it as a less expensive alternative to the monstrous Corsair Obsidian 900D, and I think it compares very favorably in that respect. Unless you need fifteen hard drives, four graphics cards, and/or a dual-CPU motherboard, the Enthoo Primo is going to be a more ideal option.</div>

<div class="quote-block">Phanteks has always made some great looking CPU coolers, and it was a big surprise when they announced the Enthoo Primo. The bigger surprise was how good the case looked. Phanteks designers have implemented several amazing features. A lot of cooling options that you normally don't see in production cases. At $249.99 USD, Phanteks has set a new benchmark for the value and features in a full tower case.</div>

** Kindly donated by user CapainCurrySauce (Jesse on theMODZOO) **<br><br>
I have been getting questions all over the place, so I decided to take them all and put them in one place. If you have a question on this case, leave a comment and I will get it added in here.<br><br><b>What is the max clearance for a radiator installed in the top panel?</b><br>
- The case has a clearance of 70mm for mounting a radiator in the roof. The mounts are offset by ~54mm so installing a 60mm (120mm series) radiator in push pull should not be an issue. As long as you do not have anything taller than 53mm on the motherboard (including ram), you can even install a 480mm monsta radiator in push pull. The X79 Dark, and G-Skill ram CAN be used with a monsta rad in push pull.<br><br><b>What is the space between the top of the case, and the top of the top 5.25" drive bay?</b><br>
- The space from the top of the case to the top of the top 5.25" drive bay is 55mm or 2.16 inches. A single drive bay is 41.3mm tall, so 55+41 = 96mm. That is enough space to mount a 45mm or a 60mm rad in push pull and only loose the top drive bay.<br><br>
Dont forget the fittings if you have them facing the front as they might take more space and.<br><br><b>What is the max clearance for installing a radiator in the front with the HDD cages in place?</b><br>
- You have 45mm of space before you will hit the HDD cages. A XT 45 will fit, but it will be a very close fit, you can expect the HDD cage to rub a little against the rad.<br><br><b>Can I install a 420mm radiator in the bottom of the case?</b><br>
- Depends on how comfortable you are with modding. In order to fit a 420mm radiator in the bottom you would have to modify the panel that conceals the HDD cages, and the drive bays. You would also have to use 120mm fans with 140mm to 120mm adapters. If you do not want to use adapters, you will have to drill holes in the bottom for 140mm fan mounting.<br><br><b>Can I fit a 140mm series, 60mm radiator in the roof of the case in push/pull?</b><br>
- No, a 140mm series rad in 60mm will be too close to the motherboard heatsinks and the fans will come in the way. Users might be able to use a shroud or a 140mm to 120mm fan adapter on the 140mm rad and use 120mm fans.<br><br><b>Can I fit a 120mm series, 60mm thick radiator in the roof of the case in push/pull?</b><br>
- Yes, the only things that will come in the way are if you are using some ultra-high profile RAM like the corsair dominator. The case has a clearance of 70mm on the inside, and the radiator mounts are offset a bit. Some motherboards might have issues with VRM water blocks and having a 120mm rad in push pull.<br><br><b>Can I install a 240mm radiator in the front with both the drive cages in place?</b><br>
- Yes, you can, but one issue you will run into is routing the tubes. The only way to do that would be is to remove the bottom HDD cage mount (held in place with 2 thumb screws). Once that is removed you get about 1.25” of space opened up at the bottom. The drive cages would have to be hung from the top and you can route your tubing from the bottom of both the drive cages.<br><br><b>Can I install 2 PSUs in the Enthoo Primo and still use the bottom of the case for a 480mm radiator?</b><br>
- Yes, you can easily do that, as seen in the picture below you would just have to modify the bottom of the case a bit. Either cut the marked part off, or bend it back straight. I would suggest using some Velcro straps to hold the PSU down. A 90 degree angled cable will make the job easier.<br>

- Yes, the bottom of the case offers almost 160mm of space before you will hit the bottom of the HDD cage.<br><br><b>Can I fit a 280mm radiator in the front of the case?</b><br>
- If you are handy with a dremel yes you can. You would need to modify the 5.25” drive bay to allow for the length of a 280mm radiator.<br><br><b>Does anyone know if a 480 rad in the bottom will fit with the upper section of the HDD cage? Can the top section be hung without the need of the bottom section of the cage?</b><br>
- Yes, it will. You have enough space to put in a monsta 480 radiator and still keep the top HDD cage.<br><br><b>Does anyone know if I could mount a reservoir above the GPU's? But under the top rear exhaust fan?</b><br>
- Depends on the size of the reservoir you are using, there is space to mount a reservoir on the top. If you also want you cannot use the top 140mm fan and put in a 80mm in its place. That way you will enough space for a longer rad as well.<br><br><b>Can I remove the Pahteks badge in the bottom side of the case?</b><br>
- Yes, the badge is held in place by 4 acorn nuts and can be removed.<br><br><b>Can the plate in the bottom front panel be removed to help increase the airflow for the front 140mm fans?</b><br>
- Yes, I started a guide on that here:<br>

- Yes you can. The LED strip used by Phanteks is 5.5mm wide. Guide here:<br>

- Out of the box, you can install 8 3-pin fans. The the hub is a PWM to 6 fan, and the case comes with two 3 pin fan splitters, allowing you a total of 8 fans out of the box.<br>
From the manual<br>
"PWM hub will enable PWM function to 3-pin fans. Fan 1 can only be connected to one fan and cannot be split. Fan 2 - Fan 6 can<br>
be split to multiple fans. Total of 11 fans can be connected to the PWM hub. All PWM functions will be controlled by fan 1."<br><br><b>How wide is the opening in the 5.25" drive bays for routing tubes?</b><br>
- The opening is 1" wide, routing the thickest of the tubing will not be an issue.<br><br><b>How much room between front door and 5.25" bay grill?</b><br>

The PWM hub functions optimally when modulated by a PWM signal from the motherboard, which will all the greatest control range. However, not all 4-pin motherboard connectors implement the PWM signal modulation.<br><b><br>
Connecting the 4-pin to CPU_FAN</b><br>
For full PWM functionality, Phanteks' PWM hub requires users to connect the 4-pin connector to the "CPU_Fan" connector of the motherboard, because all motherboard manufacturers implements a PWM signal modulation on this connector. Connect the SATA 12V power to power the PWM hub. Not all motherboards have their CPU_Fan connector set on PWM signal modulation by default. Please consult your motherboard documentation for this matter.<br><br><b>Connecting the 4-pin to other 4-pin header (besides the CPU_Fan)</b><br>
Other 4-pon connectors can be found on modern motherboards besides the "CPU_Fan" connector (e.g. "CPU_Fan2", "CHA_FAn", "OPT_Fan"), however not all motherboard manufacturers implement a true PWM signal modulation onto these connectors. These type of 4-pin connectors modulate the RPM by voltage, which has a smaller control range compared to modulation by true PWM signal.<br><br>
The 12v SATA power cable can not be used to power the PWM hub if connecting to these types of 4-pin connectors, due to the interference with the RPM regulation by voltage (resulting in the fans running on full RPM). The PWM hub will draw it's power from the 4-pin connector, which is limited to a total device consuming 30W in total.<br><br><i>Important Note:<br>
1 motherboard connector can only read 1 RPM signal. Therefore, the motherboard will only read the RPM signal from1 device connected to FAN 1. The RPM from all other devices will be regulated according to FAN 1. Y-splitter should not be connected to FAN 1.</i><br><br><br><b><span style="font-size:36px;">Enthoo Pro info and reviews:</span></b><br>

I would love it, but looks too big for me. I imagine it's even bigger in person than I think - and I already think it looks big in pictures<br><br>
but who knows, I might break down and get this case anyway. anxious to see owners/pictures!

It's really not that big. 9.84" x 25.59" x 23.62" or 250mm x 650mm x 600mm (WxHxD)

I wish! <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br>
No idea when they will be released to the public yet or who will be getting to review it.<br>
Phanteks website has it listed with specifications and can download the manual. <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br><br>
As a side note I've been told the first stock of new F140HP cooler fans is expected next month.

Phanteks has mentioned next month i belive, release to the masses get mentioned at the modzoo review too, watch it here; <a href="http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CIpoC65bpX4" target="_blank">http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CIpoC65bpX4</a><br><br>
Unfortinatly, it seems like you have to take off the ODD panel to install a 480 rad at the bottom, and to me thats sadly a dealbreaker.. Waiting to see other reviewers with less eager to pull all the pieces apart

Wow..<br>
Monster tower era isn't dying at all, this case looks great.<br>
Kind of a mix of the 900d and the level 10, and priced nicely also.

At about:<br>
* 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.<br>
* 25:00 in shows the fan hub and verifies it is PSU powered.<br>
* 37:50 in they start the critique.<br><br>
I hate video reviews but have to say they did a a very nice job. <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I'm looking forward to the written build review. <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/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.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
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".<br><br>
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.

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?
