It was fun. The S8 is really phenomenal. I can't believe how much stuff can fit inside a standard model (no extended top, no pedestal). We measured and there's 150mm clearance from the top of the GPU to the top of the case/bottom of the drop in rad mount, enough for a monsta in push/pull for sure, and then some to allow for tubing.
About time you two got that video done. Really looking forward to seeing it.thumb.gif

So far i have...

2 Swiftech MCP655 pumps
2 Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 360mm - White Special Edition
1 CORSAIR AX1200i
6 Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentPro PL-PS 120mm x 25mm

Future plans for this build include...

ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition
Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E
2 EVGA SuperClocked 03G-P4-2783-KR GeForce GTX 780 3GB
CORSAIR AX series AX860 (in the pedestal)
EK Waterblocks for the MB and GPU.

Of curiosity, why did you for the Noiseblocker PL-PS fans?
I am racking my head atm as to what fans to choose for my radiators.

I was going to go with them or the Loop ones but I heard back things about the loop ones producing noise in Push Pull configs.

sorry for DP BUT....
Has any one else noticed that they can fit 420 rads in their S8 pedestal ??? eek.gif
My plans for the ped may have just changed dramatically.



A couple small mods needed - at least for this Alphacool UT60 420mm.
Holes need to be made to fit the stop plugs on each end from outside the panels once rad is fitted
The rad is exactly the same length as internal of the ped - just stop plugs make it too long to fit.
and a custom mounting bracket will need to be made.

EDIT
Please Ignore the mismatch fans and the prop support under the cooler pack.....BUT
I couldn't resist a look with push / pull fans on the rad.

I think this is how it's meant to be biggrin.gif






I probably would have used the mount the middle fan is attached to if the fan spacing on it wasn't 20mm.
I'll need 2 mounting plates anyway so I'll make new ones.

You know if the S8 was just 10 - 15 mm longer (depth) the 420 Alphacools would fit out of the box (with a suitable mount) and be centered too
Any suggestions on 420 rads that are shorter than the UT60's ??

Hey guys,
Could I possibly pick your brain on my Radiator config.
Currently I have the 360 rads in the FlexBay and in the HDD bay and have large top window

The Radiators I was planning on purchasing were 2x UT60's

This being my first caselabs case I am a tad torn on what config I should use.
Should I have a push pull in both Radiators blowing Air out from the case? with only 1 fan then at the backplate pulling air in?
Or Should I go with 2 push only Radiators pulling air into the case?

Do you guys have any insight on this?
Thanks smile.gif

ADragg explains it quite well as copied below

In a decently ventilated case, all you need is intake for the best airflow and then all of that intake will facilitate more than enough passive exhaust out the ventilated back. He could get away with no exhaust at all, honestly, but like me and most others, he put a single exhaust at the back just because it makes use feel better and it looks good, plus the back panel is the one panel that's dedicated for exhaust (fans intake from front, top, and bottom and all of that air naturally heads for where it can escape, which is the vented rear panel), so you wouldn't want to put an intake there working against the rest of the fans. Since the entire rear panel is vented, the rear exhaust isn't really doing a whole lot, but it might help a bit in facilitating the exhaust."

You pretty much always want to go for positive pressure inside the chassis. That is, more or less, more fans blowing in than blowing out. The air outside of your case is always cooler (ambient) versus the inside temperatures, so pulling more of that ambient air into the chassis and allowing a fan or two to blow it out is pretty optimal.

shouldn't the radiator face the opposite direction?
