Ready to buy M8 Case

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi Caselabs - I just have a few questions just to make sure that I've got my bases covered before buying the M8 Case.
These are the parts that I'm currently looking at

MAGNUM M8 Case (Color: Black Matte, ATX Layout: Standard, MB Side Door: Standard Window (..., MB Door Window: Gray, PSU Side Door: Ventilated, PSU Door Window: None, Top Cover: Standard Ventilated, I/O Panel: None, PCI Backplate: Hex Mesh, HDD Cage Type: Standard (MAC-101))

Caster Kit
SSD Mounting Kit
Flex-Bay Cover, Triple Bay x 2 (i want solid base - no bottom fans)

I'm looking at doing the following
Water cooled system (not sure on the reservoir at the moment - if it will be bay mounted or internal.
1 x Blu-ray player only - which is why I only want the one bay - but do I still get the other plates (singles) in case I change my mind later - ie extra burner/ player or bay reservoir.
2 x SSD drives + 1 x HDD

looking at running 2 x 4 fan radiators internal at the top with fans in push - I gather I should have enough room between the motherboard and the radiator + fan combo. - is this also designed for 120 or 140 mm fans?

I hope I've got everthing covered - just want to make sure before I purchase the case.

Thanks again and look forward to your reply.
Please let me know if I am missing anything that I will need to add as I would rather get it now than later.

Ok, great. A couple of things. I'm not sure what you mean by 2 x 4 fan radiators. The M8 is designed for 360 (or 120.3) radiators. If you want to use the larger 480 (120.4) radiators, you would need to look at the MH10 or TH10. The cases are designed for 120mm fans. The fan holes at the bottom of the case are standard, but the they ship with covers plates so they are not exposed. If you need something solid down there to anchor to, then consider one of the bottom accessory mounts (MAC-128/129/130).

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks smile.gif

I read this post twice and you havent really asked a single question.. ?

Also not sure by what you mean in terms of 2 x 4 fan radiators.
a typical M8/M10 can hold up to two 360mm radiators.
In terms of which radiators depends on how thick they are, as well as your fans.

They do have the option of getting an extended top for an additional $25/35 depending on how thick your radiator is.

so great to asked before hand :-)
so the case M8 is design for 3x 120mm fans - the x2 I gather you can install 2 radiators internally across the top.
making it 120.3 x 2 ??

thanks again

ok, just placed my order - hoping I do not have to add anything else to fit the components in - fingers crossed - looking forward to my new case - something different from what most will ever have.
