Someone mentioned earlier in the thread that horizontal boards were more prone to failure in the case of a water leak (I assume because the water could pool on the board). Is water leakage common or so rare that it 's not worth designing around?

If it is a problem, I am wondering whether an "inverted" horizontal board (with the GPU having it's connector pins pointing up) would keep the risk of water leak damage to a minimum? It would be hard to work on unless the motherboard could be rotated or slid out of the case easily.

Just curious as I am a watercooling noob.

I learned to watercool my computers from my father ( back then, you almost had to make your own parts for a lot of things ), and he's only had 2 leaks in his life time since then. I've been watercooling my own rigs since I was old enough to pay for my own parts, and have only had 1 leak. All of which weren't bad, most leaks are just small droplets, and as rare as those are major leaks are even more rare.

While they do happen, it's few and extremely far between. Just take your time and do things right and everything should be fine. Do an initial leak test outside the case, put paper towels around it for the first few hours after you get it in the case, and you'll be fine. And just keep an eye on things every once in a while, anytime you're inside to dust it just take a look at the seals and make sure there's no drops or air bubbles forming.

Not really worth worrying about.

Leaks are rare if you're careful and test your test your system. Any MB orientation can be a problem if it gets wet, just depends on where the leak is. Many people prefer a horizontal MB for W/C systems because it minimizes the impact of heavy W/C components.

Amen to that, having a QUAD system with full-cover blocks myself, I had to construct an "arm" to support the GPUs.

Would it still work without the "arm" - Sure - But you try folding on a system like that and going to bed without throwing the system (And weight of blocks) a nervous look.

S3 Thunderbolt. (first thing I thought of after seeing S3).

You might have a problem with a Buell trademark though... Maybe not since it isn't a motorcycle.

I would call it the CaseLabs Mine

Why?

I want it to be mine thumb.gif, but I see it as a little explosive package.
And when powered and then detonated, an explosion of high-end performance comes from it.

or better
Magus S3 ( follows M scheme, and is latin for magic, so it relates to merlin because just as it's merlin like to have created such amazing cases, it's magical to be able to fit such a great amount of high end stuff in this small one tongue.gif )
Maxim S3 (this is my favorite and if i could only submit one choice it would be this)

Idk all I could come up with in the past 20 minutes of brainstorming haha
