M8 Build

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Guys I received my m8 yesterday and am almost finished with the build. Great case, great build quality (puts my last lian li to shame to be honest)

I want to post some pictures of the build but can I link to other forums via overclock.net, namely ocuk?

If I can you can use the link with the compilation of buil logs you have going.

thanks

Linking to outside forums is against Overclock's policy.

Though please, don't let that stop you from posting pictures, we would love to see!

The M8 is my dream case.

Yeh guessed as much that forum doesn't allow links to other forums either; will just copy the post from there then.

Here you go, final post from the other forum:

Hi guys case arrived finally on Friday and after an epic 2 day build I have some photos to share of the case as it arrived and with my bits in it. The build was epic as I have a very bizarre motherboard which necessitates having to take the cmos battery out every time I change a component on my board else the damn thing doesn't start and spent a while trying to diagnose a nic problem as the bios cannot even find my onboard.....

Anyway one thing about this case the build quality puts my last lian li to shame which compared to this feels like a tin can. The alu is seriously thick in this case feels twice as dense as the lian li.

Size wise its not as high nor as deep as my 700d obviously it;s wider but I seriously was still struggling to find room for everything as you will see. Cable management was acceptable but to be honest trying to hide 14 fan wires, fan controller, 2 pumps, 8 sata cables and molex's ain't gonna be easy in any case.

Hard drive cages are excellent no vibrations whatsoever mounting for rads as you'd expect is perfect, one thing to note about the case though is that all holes a 6/32 unc so do not take standard fan screws, fortunately I have loads of rubber screws so used those instead.

Enjoy and ask any questions about the case if you have any as this is not really a build log, more a before and after.

cheers

it looks like you have a book in the case, at least to me lol what is that in the lower right hand section of the mother board side complete picture? And is that your reservoir on top of it? Looks like a very well conceived and constructed system. Good Work!

I can't wait to get back stateside and open my M8. It's just sitting in a friends garage waiting to be opened...

Ahh that's just an anti vibration pad under the pump there is another one on the psu side too but the pic doen't really show it.

Res is mounted in a 5 1/4 inch bay under the blu ray drive.
