STH 10 Monsta in Top

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, can i mount a 560 monsta rad in the top? or need i the 120mm extendend top? Or is it Possible with some Customwork?

Can you show me some buildlogs with that configuration?

Don't need the extended unless you are doing a drop in mount with a ventilated top. You can put the 560 monsta at the bottom, because top will be tight with PSU. You can mount a triple 120 monsta 80 mm with a slim 360 and a psu. But, why even bother with a 560 monsta? It will take up too much space, unless you wanna stick a couple in the pedestal. Still won't be able to do push/pulll. Go with sr-1s or UT60 140mm quads.

If you want the top mount, you'll need the extended top, unless you're putting the PSU in the bottom. Not sure why someone would want to give up a 560 radiator for a PSU in the bottom, but I'm sure someone has or will.

Radiator surface area trumps thickness again and again. At fan speeds where one can maintain one's sanity, thermal performance of the Monsta is really no better than the UT60 (which is in turn is no better than the XT45). In turn there are tradeoffs--the UT60 and Monsta have more restriction than the XT45, for instance. The whole purpose of these monster rigs with multiple radiators is keep fan speed down while attaining excellent thermals. I wish Martin would publish a review of the Monsta on martinsliquidlab so people would understand how little additional performance the Monstas actually add.

Here's the thermal performance of several radiators from Bundymania's review, with fan speeds at 800 RPM; the values are Delta T. Personally, I start to get annoyed by a dozen or more fans at around 1000 rpm. Now there are some problems with technique in this review (flow rate not being constant for one), but it's a whole lot of work to test this much hardware, so hats off to Bundymania for doing it.



I find the reviews at martinsliquidlab really helpful in understanding the complexities of watercooling. Here's thermal performance of several radiators compared at constant flow rate.
The full context is http://martinsliquidlab.org/2012/04/12/alphacool-nexxxos-ut60-360-radiator/4/



No copyright watermark on those, I hope they aren't.

Like everyone has said here you COULD fit a 560 monsta rad via the top drop in rad mount but it will take up all of you room in your top chamber limiting you to psu mount in the bottom.

I have 2 HWL 560GTX rads in the bottom of min in push pull and they fit with only a small space between them so in theory you could fit 2 monstas with one set of fans in the bottom.

They are nice rads but for the space they take up you can achieve betting cooling solutions using the same space and other rads.

Just to be clear: you can't side mount a 560 in the upper compartment of the STH10 without modifications. You can top mount one - either inside the chamber (limiting the chamber to one radiator and no PSU) or by using the 120mm top cover and leaving the chamber open for other things.
