Project Hekla (Red M8)

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
This will be a modest air-cooled build of an M8 (my first build so be nice to me!)

The powder coat job comes to you from SmasherBasher. (The only credit I can take is picking out the colors !)

I know this has been said a thousand times before, but everything about this case is simply extraordinary. Hat's off to Jim for all he does ! thumb.gif

BTW Hekla is a volcano in Iceland. medieval.gif

H100 is not overkill in a Case Labs enclosure... CL cases beg for full custom (extravagant) water cooling setups. Looks like one ridiculously fun build though... Have some fun biggrin.gif

Haha while I agree, the H100 is a very good cooler, even a custom water loop doesn't do that much better. Believe me I've done an apples to apples and the difference is less than the effect of the dust that will accumulate in a month.

Thanks it is good to hear those results! I will say that the hoses are extremely short making installation of the radiator a challenge! It appears designed to put the radiator on a top-mount, but I have all along planned to put exhaust fans at the top of the case.

I think I have a solution which I will post later.

Interesting... worst case maybe you could get a flex bay rad mount? Seems like the tubes are long enough to reach the front.

Use the vertical mount bracket with a fan mount .

Yeah that is close to what I actually did. Here is my solution -- I threaded the hoses through the middle of the case and mounted the radiator on the quad-fan mount just above the power supply. Like this --
