Case Labs STH10 --> 2xSR1 560 Project Genesis

post #1 of 71
Thread Starter 
This will be my first water cooling build and it won't be completed overnight, this will be a couple of months worth of build time so please bare with me. I have just installed one of my Hardware Labs SR1 560 radiators and I just can't believe how much room is left in the lower chamber, this case really is the Titanic of water cooling cases! One thing unique about this build is the use of Gentle Typhoon AP-15's mounted to BGears 120 -> 140mm fan adapters and then finely mounted to the 140mm SR1 560 radiators.

Here are some pictures showing you just how much radiator the STH10 can hold, both SR1 560 radiators will be mounted in the lower chamber while the upper chamber will house the power supply, so I have a lot more room to play with! This particular radiator mount was designed for 35mm fans, I need this mount to fit the Gentle Typhoon AP-15's and the adapters which is the same thickness as 35mm fans.

The second SR1 560 will mount to the shallow 140mm radiator mount, but the fans plus adapters with be located on the inside in a push only setup, because these GT fans don't perform well in pull so far away from the SR1 series radiators and double that distance with the 140mm adapters.

This water cooling build will house an Ivy Bridge 3770K Quad Core 5+GHz, GTX680 and/or GTX780 (GK110) and will SLI two of these beasts! I will be going with full MB water blocks mainly for the VRM's, I don't WC Ram. I'm still having a difficult time choosing either a Crucial M4 or Samsung SSD as these are fast as hell, still undecided, only one SSD will will be used in this build. Sorry for the slightly underexposed pictures, its the best my camera can do as I'm looking to upgrade to a DLSR soon.

I paid $469.95 and it can only be purchased at Case Labs websight, the 120.4, 140.4 and 180.3 radiators mounts are $30 each. There are many worthwhile accessories to purchase, thing is you can customize your particular case to your needs! There's so many different ways to customize your case, XL window, XXL window, ventilated panel, solid panel, standard ATX, reverse ATX and the list goes on... No to cases looks the same, a complete modular case design!

I noticed you have nice black finishing caps over the pems on the bottom chamber plate covers. Did they come with your case ? I did not notice those with mine.

Congrats on noticing, I didn't think anyone would notice, their from MDPC-X International. You'll find a lot of stuff like on their websight, their in Germany yet only takes maximum 8 business days to be delivered states side! You'll love the cable management clips.
