Phanteks Enthoo Primo Testing:

Thermal testing involved recording temperatures for the CPU, GPU, and motherboard during idle and load phases. The load was simulated by running Prime95’s small FFTs and 3Dmark Vantage for one hour. The maximum temperatures were recorded using HW Monitor 1.21.0. Please note that each case is tested as delivered, including location of fans, unless otherwise noted.

The results are not surprising as the Enthoo Primo is at the low (cooler) end for all the testing, with the only exception being the CPU idle test, and it was only one degree higher. The large volume of air inside the Enthoo Primo case, along with the five 140mm included fans, work to your thermal advantage, and the potential fan location spaces remaining in the case ensures that running hot is not anything to worry about. The GPU temps were virtually identical for idle and load between all the cases. So it looks like the GPU is getting a consistent supply of cool intake air between all the cases.
