Thanks KC wink.gif
Should have some more pics up in a few hours.
Ped progressing well biggrin.gif

ADragg - big breath.....
I tested some time ago with gaskets and had trouble with the blades occasional touching when trying to get a good seal.
As you know the frame is so narrow on the flat edges.
Still though - I do think there was some noise when the spinning blades were close to the rad mounting rail but I thought was not scraping.

The shrouds are Phobya 120 x 120 x 20mm Fan / Radiator Shroud - Plexi
The seal is as good as can be - but I'll still be trfing to get some sealing foam strip on the edges - for the possible blades touching

The rubber things (one each side) are indeed cable management things - well spotted biggrin.gif
At the moment the hard piping is pretty much supporting the pump assembly.
The rubber cable management thingies are keeping the rear end of the pump assembly from sagging down.
On the rear on the pump top are 4 holes which I'll utilize for attaching a mounting bracket to - still to be designed rolleyes.gif
As for vibration and the solid mounting I'll have some sort of dampener between the pumps and Blu-ray - similar to the temp set up now.
I got the Alpenfohn's (Wing Boost 140) on a clearance sale from TKR here in Aus - were $12 each or something crazy like that biggrin.gif
The Alpenfohn's have the same issue as E-Loops with blade clearance when in pull mode

Time to bust out the stash tongue.gif
I decided I'ld rather have some extra space between the sets of fans blowing at each other in the ped.
Was either more E-Loops with shrouds - kinda too close together or a few from the GT stash biggrin.gif

All righty then - time for another update biggrin.gif.
I'll probably bend some acrylic for the drain / rad connection line later, for a few reasons...
so it doesn't stick out the back, so it is centered better & so I can recover some of those fittings tongue.gif

The S8 Ped Cooler packs.....
2 x UT60 white 360 rads,
Phobya NB-eLoop 1600 rpm as the pushers,
Scythe / Servo Gentle Typhoon AP-15 1850 rpm pulling.
ATM cables are just tucked away and will get the full treatment at a later date with a Power Adjust for Aquaero hook up.

I'm pretty certain that I'll be running Norprene hosing into the ped and out again towards the 280 in mid-chamber section.
From the 280 up through components, top rads and into res will all be acrylic work biggrinsmiley.gif

Right Hand Side....




Left Hand Side....




From the Front....



From the Back



and I tried to get a few of the plumbing....

But in your case where you're more worried about dust and already know it's not going to make much performance difference, I don't really know what I would do. If you have a filtered top on your case, then I'd go with intakes on the top because it might perform a little better and because it will help with more positive pressure which will help keep dust out even more. Plus I don't like the idea of fans blowing air out against a filter. I would think a filter would be more restrictive when in the way of an exhaust than it is when you have it restricting intake. And I also think the filter itself would introduce less noise over an intake fan. Seems like it might be noisier over an exhaust, since filters do introduce some noise, sadly.

Lot of discussion in this thread around fan intake/exhaust. I've run my fans both ways. Regardless of whether the overall case pressure is positive or negative, I end up with way more dust inside the case if you have intake fans on top. I understand the theory behind positive pressure potentially keeping dust from floating in....but the reality of it is that is you have a fan sucking air into your systems, then it is also sucking in dust. Especially on top of the case where you have a direct entry point for dust. If dust is your primary concern...make the top fans exhaust. Although...you might sacrifice a degree or so in delta. In my opinion...no big deal.

I agree with all of this ^ (excepty maybe the dust floating in part rolleyes.gif )
I used to run top fans as exhaust - kind of a habit from air cooling I suppose.
Now I've switched to top intakes for coolest airflow through the rads - never tested comparison temps though.
The deciding factor for me is the CaseLabs Top covers.
If the top intake fans are filtered then it's just so easy to clean them by popping the top off.
Always dust will get into the system - there is no avoiding it.
That's why we do (or should do) regular maintenence wink.gif

Caselabs does make that part easy for us if you want to clean filters.

Oh hi there xD. subbed!

Secondly, I see you're doing this case great justice. Nice work thumb.gif

I've not decided what I'll put on yet - probably some medium mesh stuff that will filter the bigger dust - but not restrict the fan's intake too much.
The Demciflex have a following and make for most CaseLabs models - but pretty expensive
