I do recall reading in the S8 thread that CaseLabs mods that bracket for the S8. They already provided the holes to attach it to the back panel, I think it's a good idea to use it.
And I feel foolish for not adding one to my S8 order.rolleyes.gif

I like to read the CaseLabs S8 thread as well, just noticed that you can get the extra 120.3 mount from pcoutu17. That is really nice of him.
You may be able to fit a UT60 in the side, perhaps not in push-pull though, idk. I've been running my 480 Monsta with just a single set of fans, albeit at full speed, for the necessary static pressure.
The UT60 almost qualifies as a "monsta" imo!
Yeah, i keep up to date on that thread as well. Plenty of interesting conversations are had there.
Yup, almost meant to be. I'd be a fool not to put a 120.3 in the side now, was very generous of him.
The only other rad i was looking at currently for the side was the koolance, it's 53mm thick with 30 fpi, I'm open to some other suggestions though. I want to avoid having to use a gasket with the alphacools after someone in the S8 thread brought it to my attention.

Yeah I use an external CD Drive. I've never bothered with inbuilt CD Drives.
Em I have never used a fan controller in previous build even thought I love the Aquaero! smile.gif
In the past I've always use the motherboard ports to control my fans. but for this build I was considering changing it up a bit and using an external Controller like the NZXT Sentry LXE

As per the side 120.3. from measurements and people talking about in the main thread. you can fit a UT60 in a push pull config and have have if memoery serves like 40mm space left over, so it is well doable! smile.gif

But yeah I should be getting my own case now on Tuesday and was considering starting my own build log on Overclock. would be my first, hope you guys sub smile.gif

This will be my first external optical drive.
Just took a long at that NZXT Sentry LXE, was completely unaware until now that anyone made external fan controllers.
I'm considering the XT45, UT60, & a 53mm from koolance. Gonna research some others & then decide.
Just shoot me a link when you get one up. smile.gif

Yah, The whole concept on an external fan controller is quite rare and this controller on its own has a bunch of cool features and looks quite nice as well. But it does have some Cons. people are saying on some youtube videos that the touch screen sometimes doesn't register, but I have yet to see it not register any touch on any of the videos??? tongue.gif

And they say the legs are a innefective and it moves when you use the touch screen, so I will probably end up like screwing/sticking it into my table or mounting it to the wall!! ooh I just though of that tongue.gif

I've used that controller before.
1st controller board burnt out - was fast and smooth RMA though.

The screen is really "blingy" looking and I doubt I would use it again, guess my taste/style has changed.




Biggest drawback is the low AMP / Watts per channell - can't remember exactly what it is, but I moved mine on because of it.
Check your intended fan groupings for max power draw carefully before deciding on this controller.

I'm using the nzxt sen-001LX it only supports 6watts per channel next one
I get is gonna be the aquero 6 as it supports 36watts per channel and you
can add pwa2 to increase its ailities.
post #57 of 68
Its all grand 1 fan per channel. but then all of a sudden you want to have 1 channel control 6 Corsair AF120's for a P/P radiator tongue.gif and your screwed haha
4 watt a fan haha.

Finally got the second 120.2 monsta in, & attached the second reservoir. tongue.gif

That looks really awesome!

I'm wondering how long the video cards you're using are? It seems like if I went with a similar setup, my 780 classys would interfere with the reservoir you have mounted.

Have you tested clearance for your cards? If so and it works, how much room do you have?
