Best radiator placement in M8?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! First build, let alone with water, let alone with a Caselabs... ;c)

Question, I have an M8.. And, I'm wondering where I should install my (3) SR1 360s that I'm hoping to go push/pull on with GT-15s... Should I mount them up top, bottom, both? Your help is greatly appreciated... I think this might end up being a dual PSU build, so perhaps one in the PSU side (or not?) ?

Depending on the top you got, you could put two on the top of the case and one on the bottom of the mobo side to save room for the dual psu's.

Thanks man, seems like that is the move... I do have vents up top..

I have to RX360 rads on top of my M10. Always has worked nicely. In my case (no pun intended) I had to cut a bit of room for the fittings to attach, but I think in more recent production runs the top of the case was modified so you might not have to do so.

So, do I need to purchase the 'extended' top in order to run a Black Ice SR1 360 in push/pull with AP-15s?

Yes, to run P/P you would need an extended top cover.

Thanks for the info, Caselabs! Now, are there any warehoused on the East Coast? Or must I order directly from you?

Also, how about black M4 0.7 x 30mm screws for mounting rads?

All of our inventory is contained in our vast warehouse biggrin.gif on the west coast. I don't know if there are any available on the east coast. You would have to check with FCPU or PPC. We don't stock screws, but McMaster is where I get most of mine for my builds.

Thanks for the great info Case Labs person! I actually had a pack on order from the holy McMaster... Love that site..

Question, which case top am I looking for exactly? I see an 85mm, but I also see a 120mm top cover.. What is the benefit of going 120mm? Considering I have no restraints on height, perhaps I should go that route?

Anybody have any insight as to whether I should get the extended top, or a pedestal?
