Got a large package in the mail and a small one. Two ek xt 480s, an xt 240, and a lovely little Alpha ST30 240. Going to tap the EK 480s and ST30 rad. Sadly, the remaining GTX 240 and XT240 don't fit w/ the bottom 480, the side xt480, and the top TFC 480 in their place. The ST30 was included w/ the deal on the ek rads so i"m happy that I can squeeze in one more rad for the heck of it. I do loose one fan mounting point in the front psu area since the bracket is there. I need to send a suggestion message to CL to redesign the side bracket. Make so the end point (of the non-opening side) is receased a bit to clear at least one fan, but there's enough room to possibly clear a standard to medium size rad (~30-45mm). That should still allow you to stick that 480 rad on the side. One fan ain't going to kill it tbh and i have a plate to block it.
Lastly, the paracord came in
. I did get my little 24-pin extension yesterday and did sleeve part of it w/ the black I already have. I did finally conquered my paracord sleeving demons
. I figured measure the paracord relaxed (as usual) but cut it 5-7mm short. This will give you the tout/snug fit once you stretch it over. Also, I was using 3/16 2:1 heatshrink which is great for TechFlex but its not enough for paracord. I did try 3:1 of the same size and it was also coming loose too often. Had some 1/8" heatshrink i typically use for shielding spliced cables. Its a pita to put on the paracord at first but once you get the hang of it, its easy. As long as you can clear the cable w/ paracord, this size creates such a tight seal and its small enough to push through into the connector. I'll be using this from now on. I do need more heatshrink (black, green, and white).
I should be done w/ prepping everything by this weekend. But I have the FedEx thing and MSI rma pending. So I won't fill the loop anytime soon
Loving the TH10, even though its damaged, I can't think of a lot of superlatives for it. Yes, its not perfect and there's room for improvement but this case does ~97-95% of what a wc wants from a case.
