The Flex-Bay System - Page 2

post #11 of 28
I would like to see a cover that was more than three bays, say a six bay cover, so you do not have the break between bays. It would be cleaner for those that install items behind the flex bay area but do not need access from the outside. By the way, I found the thumbscrews were long enough to go through the cover and into the flex bay mounts without any issue. I originally mounted a Thermaltake hard drive three bay mount this way for some additional HD space.

Yes I agree having bigger covers would look better, but that means we would need up to a 18 bay cover for the TX10!!...weirdsmiley.gif

That's interesting. For anyone interested to know, the Thumbscrews we use are 5/16'' long

At the risk of sounding dumb... doh.gif

How exactly do you go about installing a radiator (lets say 120.4 in a push pull config.

I assume you put the fans in the interior of the bracket then the radiator flush against the bracket followed by fans on the other side of the rad. (similarly to the pic below)





My challenge would be... how the heck do you attach the fasteners to the fans in the middle?

The grill section can be removed from the bracket.

Just wondering it is possible to use multiple 120mm flex bays (MAC-113) to double as a radiator mount? An example would be two 120mm flex bays that can be used now to hold a a HDD cage (e.g MAC-203) and a simple fan vent and down the track be substituted to hold a 240mm radiator.
