where ?!!? did you see that ? all his pix show A rad at top and A rad at bottom. I even checked his posts in case he had posted updates somewhere else. confused.gif

Yeah, I moved both radiators to the top.
No change in temperatures, still pulling air through the radiators and into the case.

I am at the point where I am deciding how to proceed with this loop and computer.
Definitely going to add a motherboard block and do some custom fabrication.

Trying to decide whether:
(1) I want to keep to the stock M8 dimensions (and add two skinny radiators).

OR

(2) go extended top (either 120mm from Case Labs or fabricate something myself) and add two Monsta radiators.

Once the decision is made, the build log will keep progressing.
I just want to keep this case from becoming bloated in size, I like the M8 proportions as-is, but I also want to maximize the cooling by using two Monsta rads instead of two ST30s.

Decisions, decisions...
Always open to everyone's suggestions!

I hope this links it to the Picture dated March 13th

Well, Your build log has convinced me to buy an M8 instead of an S3...plus I talked a friend into getting one and his is already filled at his house...and I fell in love with the case when I saw it...so I just sold all my paintball stuff and will be getting one hopefully soon.

What I plan on doing is to put either 2x UT60 or 2x Monsta on the PSU side(top and bottom) with the front fans working as an exhaust to try and keep all that air on that side fresh and not allow hot air on the back of the MOBO for long.

You can also put a UT60 above the Mobo and an ST30 below it...I think that would be enough cooling for about anything you would want.
