Hmmm...

We can't change the width of the chamber. Another alternative would be to use a washer to offset the rad mounts deeper into the chamber. This would hopefully create enough space for the filters.

Hmmm.. That's a good idea. I'll try that and see how it is.

Thank you. I'll report back one I get my X79 up and running.

Sounds good thumb.gif

Has any thought gone into dust-filters for the STH10 yet? I first thought the demiflex ones could be fitted internally but I was somewhat dissapointed that they could not be fitted internally as someone pointed out.

Good air filtering on intakes is a pretty big must-have as far as I'm concerned redface.gif

Is anyone using a demciflex filter on the front of an SM8, and if so, does it interfere (overlap) with the switch plate?

If you email DemciFlex the exact size of the filter you need, or even physically mail them a cardboard cutout for them to use as a template, if they don't already stock a filter for that part of the SM8 they'll make you one. It barely costs any more than their off-the-shelf offerings for custom work. Like 18 bucks.

Also:

This is their off-the-shelf M8 front triple 120mm fan Flex Bay filter. I can't recommend them enough. Sorry for the dark photography.

It's about time CaseLabs works directly with DEMCifilter to get this done! tongue.gif

I ended up working directly with them myself, who were fantastic by the way, a few months ago to have some internal filters made for my SMH10. I had them custom create both a top panel vent and a radiator side panel vent.

Yes, I said it. They created me a radiator side panel vent filter. I also worked directly with Jim and Kevin to stop the fans from rubbing against the radiator side panel vent filter and causing a horrendous buzzing noise. If you want to do this as well, purchase some of these from McMaster-Carr:

18-8 Stainless Steel Male-Female Threaded Hex Standoff, 3/16" Hex, 9/32" Length, 6-32 Screw Size

Simply remove the hex standoffs from the radiator vent, screw in the above screws, then re-screw in the hex standoffs into the provided holes. This will give you some extra space which should allow enough room for the fans and the filter to live together simultaneously. The panel does slightly jutt out from the case, obviously since it's a little over 1/4" longer, but on a case this size it's honestly hardly noticeable.

Important Note: DEMCifilter has a minimum border of 10mm. For the larger filters it can get up to 15mm. They will not make anything smaller than 10mm. This caused me trouble when I originally wanted to use their filters for my flex-bay on the interior because you would see the frame of the filter. This was most certainly not aesthetically pleasing. The only remedy for this would be if DEMCifilter chose to make smaller frames or if CaseLabs increased the size of their flex-bay. Another important note for those considering putting a filter on the interior of the flex-bay: This is NOT as cool as you would think, especially if you have a fan in there! To remove the filter, you need to remove the flex-bay, unscrew the fan, then take the filter out and clean it. Then you need to put the filter back on, replace the fan, screw it in, and put it all back on the case. Really not worth it if you ask me.

I'm super happy with my current setup. I have my flex-bay fans venting out (no filter needed thankfully) and the top vent and right radiator panel intake which have filters. I pop both panels off when it's time to clean and simply wash my filters, replace, and click back into place.
