Hello everyone, my first post on OCN.
I pre-ordered my STH10 back on 20-Jan, so I think I must be the last one to get in on the pre-order. So, while I am waiting to receive my new case I am trying to see how the radiators will fit into the top and bottom chambers.
I want to keep the three compartments thermally isolated. So, the top and bottom sections will each have "passthrough", side-to-side airflow. The general placement of the Rads and a PSU in the top and bottom sections is shown in the very rough mockup below.
I have only spent a few hours, so far, with SketchUp to learn enough to create this diagram. I intend to learn more.
Even though the bottom section can fit a 140.4 radiator on the side without a PSU, this mockup shows that I can only fit a 120.3 radiator in line with the Corsair AX1200 PSU. A 140.3 rad on the PSU side would only have about 11mm of space between them. This would not allow room for the PSU connectors.
Those blocks on the sides of the rads are std 25mm thick fans.
The sizes I used for the various parts are:
Rad 120.3 = 133mm x 397mm x 60mm
Rad 120.4 = 133mm x 517mm x 60mm
Rad 140.3 = 153mm x 460mm x 60mm
Rad 140.4 = 153mm x 605mm x 60mm
AX1200 PSU = 150mm x 86mm 186mm
STH10 size = HxDxW 819mm x 675mm x 286mm (I moved everything inwards by 15mm on three sides and 5mm on the back side, as a guess)
I am looking for a second or third opinion about the space available to fit this configuration.
Thanks in advance for your help,
