Any know the maximum dimension of 360 radiator I could fit inside a S8S/S8 case with the 120.3 x 2 drop-in? I know I couldn't fit a EK predator 360 inside. Wonder if smaller 360 AIO would fit inside like the new swiftech one?

Current Build: Project Frost
Gaming Rig Build: Project Ice Dragon

I got that drop in 360 rad. It wasn't exactally drop in although. I had to cut those tabs off the bottom of the case with a dremmel because for the life of me couldn't get it to line up in any way with them on. Unless it goes behind the tabs which then I'd have to bend the mount.

Why is it pulling out air from the case when you get better airflow and temps with the fans pulling air from the outside..? And push gives like 5% better temps than pull, hah

This^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Why pull hot air through the Rad? You should be pushing the cooler outside air through the Rad...

Thus, cooler temps for your components that you're cooling. Remember, with water cooling you're cooling the vital components of your system...

Exhaust using a non radiator fan, preferably the rear chassis fan!

Vardars are optimal for pull. I have 4 ff5 intake fans and 9 ff5 pulling exaust out through the rads. The temps are just a degree or two above ambient inside my case at full load.. The only heat buildup is in the rads and it is being pulled out...

Also it helps with cleaning as I don't have to remove fans from rads to get off microdust buildup. I'm only hitting 35c load on my gpus and 65c on a 4.8g 5820k so I'm extremely happy.

I'm convinced I got sent a deformed bracket. I got it on but it did not go on like any online pictures I've seen. All the others just slip on. Mine absolutely would not without cutting. The holes did not line up. I thought it was an exterior mount for a few minutes..

That is one outstanding S8S you have there M8! thumb.gif

...getting ready to mod mine this weekend cutting a 64mm hole in the midchassis deck (red circle), lining it with CaseLabs U-channel liner like the oblong cable passthrough (red arrow) next to it.

If I did the math correctly the U-channel should compress just enough to support the cylindrical reservoir tube filled with coolant all by itself without any mounting hardware. If that doesn't work, well there's always Gorilla Tape. tongue.gif

60mm res + 2.3mm Uchannel thickness(x2) = 64.6mm, the rubber should compress .3mm either side... (I hope) smile.gif
