Question on Case Size - Page 2

post #11 of 24
One advantage of the MH10 is that is has less bulk and isn't as "obvious" as a TH10.

And here is a bit of a news item for MH10 owners (and future owners biggrin.gif ):

We'll be adding an extended pedestal to the line-up, so you can add a pair of push/pull 560's should the "need" ever arise biggrin.gif

One thing I like about this site is that you post something come back a little later and BAM there's a response.

Thank you for your replies

Gunna eat dinner and do some math.

Edit:

Technically the push/pull will work inside TH10 with 150mm head room with the rads & fans I'm using.
I'll take XNine's advise and not do that as I want to add shrouds and probably add an extended top anyways.

Here is the case I am considering, does anyone have input?

Here is my parts list:

TH10 (Reverse ATX)
XL Grey Window(MB side)
Solid PSU Side
Solid Option on the Back Side.
Front IO Panel
Vertical Flex Bay Cover(MAC-148)
Ventilated Top

Does the Ventilated top come off?

I went with the TH10 because I want an SR-2 board for my next build(growth). I have plenty of room in my office so that's not a problem. I also wanted the 480 rad. i also wanted the ability to be able to mount them on the top or bottom. Most everyone seems to be putting them up top.

I am going to start off by putting a 480 up top and pulling air through the rad. Going to put a few fans in the front pulling air into the case. Going to put the push air out the back where I can. Which side to put a single 480 to start. I would like to put it on the PSU side but does that make sense? Maybe pulling air over the main components is bettter. I am open to suggestion here if anyone has any.

I think long term, I will add another RAD and GPU to my loop but for now, I will just start CPU so I can get some experience.

It's serious overkill for right now but that's never stopped me before lol. Let me know if I need to decide anything else.

Will order over the next day or two once I get one more question answered from Jim.

Thanks everyone!

Yes the top does come off. It pops off just like the front and side panels do.

If you are planning to run a single rad to start, I would suggest putting it on the PSU side. You mentioned you want to pull air in from the top across the rads and into the case. For that set up, I would also suggest either making the bottom fans or front fans on the PSU side exhaust.

Alternatively you could have the front fans as intake, the rad fans as intake as you describe, and the just be sure to get the vented PSU side door and let the positive pressure force the air out the venting.

That's probably a good idea. I haven't quite decided on bottom / top mounted RAD yet. Going to go ahead and get the case and experiment some. I need to go through other build logs and see what others are doing. This is going to be alot of fun to build. Looking forward to getting started.

Thanks for the reply!

I am sure noticing a lot of SR-2 build plans, this is good (espically if you fold for OCN). Myself, I need a Mac and the Adobe Master Collection but I want to build a SR-2. I have a test station that I modded to fit the HTPX (SR-2 motherboard size) and Case Labs sells their motherboard tray for only 10.00 more than MM (84.00 vrs 74.00)

Just to be clear - I believe the MM version is just the tray. Ours is the tray, the back plate, and the rubber feet (needed to use it as a tech station). It's not inclined to flex

Hi folks. A few quick questions.

1. Would it be possible for an order to be done with thicker aluminium outer panels?

2. I'm kinda worried about volumetric weight for transoceanic freight. Do you think it might be possible to have a chassis shipped sans rivets in a flatpack and assembled using countersunk machine screws and nuts by the receipient?

IMO you guys need a bit more publicity and a more complete product gallery. I'd almost finalized an order with MM before I got bowed over by your clearly superior kit.

Specs and statistics do the talking for geek kind, but pictures move the regular folk more

Thanks,
DF

Thanks!

The side panels and covers are made from .063 aluminum. The frame is made from .090". It wouldn't be feasible at this time to change that because it would affect so many other parts.

We're looking into the possibility of shipping the case in pieces, but I'm not expecting anything soon. Right now they are fixtured to control alignment before they are assembled. The TX10 will ship in pieces (because of it's size). If that goes ok, we'll consider it for other cases.

I'm trying to get some new pictures up over the weekend.

Thanks for the quick response!

I'm wondering if there might be a market for a monolithic external rad box to compliment the Magnum chassis.

A solid aluminium frame with modular cutouts for mounting radiators would remove the design headaches involved with integrating a hot lane into a chassis without making it too tall.

It would also allow someone to pressurise the main chassis with filtered air to keep dust and other nasties out, a nigh impossible task when one needs to worry about maintaining constant airflow over internal rads.
