Nope, just been busy, and was also waiting on washers. Those Monsta rads come with crappy M3 screws that have TINY little allen wrench heads on them. The heads are so small that they go right through the roof/floor screw holes in the M8. So it took me a day or 2 to track down M3 washers. Just picked up a bag of those yesterday, so I'll most likely be working on it this weekend.

Didn't do a thing this weekend. I took one look at it, realized my tube layout simply WON'T work. The Monstas are just too thick. No idea how I'm going to run the tubing now. So I chose to get drunk and watch movies instead. smile.gif

I feel your pain... I'm pretty much stuck between two options with mine as well... so it actually doesn't get any easier when you add a pedestal to the mix... it just changes the places that you're unsure about. biggrin.gif On the upside... if you got one (pedestal) you could stick Monstas in it just fine - push-pull even and still have enough room for tubing to run between them. I resisted the urge to order two... mostly because I didn't want even more options to consider.

There's something to be said for cases that only have one place to put something, and only one way tubing can be run reasonably... it does make your build look like everyone else's in the same case - but at least it doesn't result in all the circular planning that goes on with the CL cases. biggrin.gif

Well I figure I just have to do things a bit differently, so I'll end up with a rather ugly tube run on the power supply side of the M8. I want there to be nice tube runs on the window side, so I'm going to try to stick to the original plan of running like so:

D5 #1 > D5 #2 in TubeZilla > bottom GPU > top GPU > CPU > EX360 rad in the roof above mobo. That's where it gets tricky. I'm going to attempt to run a tube from the EX360 rad through the grommet at the case rear down to a Monsta on the BOTTOM on the power supply side (rad ports towards the REAR of the case). Then use some 90 degree connectors from the bottom 360, and run a tube along the rad, then up to the top Monsta but with the ports near the FRONT of the case. Assuming I can get a tube between the HDD cage and the P.S. case door. Then run from the top Monsta through the round grommet near the front / top of the case down to D5 #1 to complete the loop. Not sure if that will work, but I'm low on options at this point, It makes sense in my head, assuming it fits and I do the install in the proper order. Hell I still haven't considered drainage / fill options at this point either! smile.gif
