[Build Log] The Hero Magnum (Finished!) (CaseLabs Magnum M8+Pedestal) - Page 6

post #51 of 150
Subbed! Nice build man! I'm in the works of an M8 build myself.. First water build, so I'll be sure to pay close attention while reading this thread from the beginning! I'm looking for best placement of my (3) 360s.. And, just learned of the fact that I should've ordered the extended top to go push/pull.. Now, I'm thinking I should've went with a pedestal like yourself... Decisions, decisions.. Both perhaps?

thumb.gif Thank you, I have so many ideas but not a very big budget and the right tools. biggrin.gif

most def go for both the ped and the top and also the 360 side mount (MAC-122)! I only have the 64mm top because with 3x 360 push/pull isn't needed, imo.

But the case supports push/pull for at least 3 rads, although cable management will be a challenge..

Found your build log & subbed right away wink.gif

Today I'm the proud co-owner (General Partnership, along with my dad) of a small health and safety service/provider! <- not sure if this is the correct translation

Made some little brackets, which I still need to paint, for the drive bay. It sits now closer to the 360 side mount bracket in the pedestal.
Pix when I get home.

Hey Grim, maybe you can help me out... I can't decide whether to go extended top, or pedestal... Of course, then there's the whole option of going both, but anyway... I'm trying to run (4) 360 rads.. I'm in the process of a quadfire 290x build, all 360s in push/pull.. Pedestal, or extended top?

In your situation the pedestal would be better. you can fit 2 in p/p there, and the other 2 in the psu side. However, if you want to make it easier for yourself, you'd better get that extended top too wink.gif
I struggled with a push/pull 360 in the top too, before I had the extended top. The UT60's with the tiny fragile screws are horrendous to tighten when you also need to hold that heavy rad.

Well, I think I'm going to take the hard way out, because dropping another $110 on top of the $200 I'm going for with the pedestal... Is kind of where I have to draw the line. I mean, I'm already into this stupid thing for like $7k, and as much as that makes the extra $100 mean nearly nothing.. I'm just trying to exercise some self control, albeit way late in the game... ;c)

So, pedestal it is. I really appreciate your help Grim! I'm sure I'll be lurking around on your build, as I have much to learn from you. Thanks again.
