Depends. With the mesh front you could probably open up some holes and mount it.

I was hoping I could just drop the rads in the pedestal push-pull but it's going to be a little harder. I think I will go ahead and sleeve those fans so I don't have to take it apart multiple times. Today I ordered some casters from Case Labs, should make moving the case around much easier. wink.gif

Right now I'm thinking on whether or not to pull the RX240 from the build for now so I can put some holes for fittings/tubing in the bottom to the pedestal. I will probably keep it, just an option. But I will start working on those fans so I can get everything assembled in the ped and see what I got to work with, if I have to run the tubing straight down between the rads it will limit where I can put the holes, which possibly means moving either the 240 or the psu. We'll see!

Welcome GREG MISO!

Looks good so far. Subbed. I've got my SM8 sitting in my dining room right now. Won't be doing a loop for a little bit so this should be good for some ideas. Still trying to figure out my layout.
