Need Help With Rad Placement for (3) SR1 360s (push/pull) in Caselabs M8

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I attempting to plan out my build in this case... And, I'm wondering if I should have purchased the extended top in order to run push/pull on a rad up top? The fans (AP-15) are 25mm fans, if that helps.

Also, am I not going to move enough air in my case, running (3) rads? Should I have gone with a pedestal to alleviate this problem? I am running quadfire 290x, and a 3930k on blocks. This is my first wc build, and I'm not one to feel the temp of the pool before jumping in.. So, here I am! I'd appreciate a little help, as I am not sure if I can continue on in this direction, and still have desirable results...

Should/can I run (2) rads on the mobo side, and (1) on the psu side? Or, should I go for a pedestal?

I am also interested in the Caselabs S8 case.
There's so many options though, don't know where to start. biggrin.gif

You can probably make it work if you put one in the floor and one in the top on the mobo side, and the last in the top on the psu side. I think mounting 360s in the top and flex bays will interfere with each other, but you might want to consider vented flex bay fan mounts for extra air flow.

Black Ice SR1 are 54mm thick, so push/pull will be 104mm.
