Yea, there are plans for very mild lighting. Any suggestions for some SOFT lighting, im all ears. I like those spotlight leds for this build to just focus on a could parts as opposed to illuminating everything.

Ill look into some textures/covers for the face as well as maybe the mid and side plate. This build isn't a priority right now so this will do.

I need to wait a few months before building my system but I was considering 4 480 radiators with a 180mm 360 radiator in the front.

I'm hoping CL ships the bracket soon. I had to really think about this one since this bracket has to options for orientation. I have to also solve the exhaust but I have a few ideas already.

FOUR 480s?

Will you be replacing the Windowed side or are you going to place the 4th 480 horizontally on the floor ?

I've got to see how you mount the PSU!

Unfortunately, per the TT rep, they're not selling the vented side panel. So both will lay flat. It's not a complete loss as o discovered the vents don't lineup with the side rad. Another TT quirk tongue.gif

This layout does bring another problem to solve: rad exhaust air flow management. But ive had this issue I the past with another case and it can be dealt with.

Damn, my plan goes out the window without a second ventilated panel. Oh well, four radiators will be more than enough. Here's how I've mounted my psu in the front and an idea of where I want to mount the hdd rack in the future.The psu is mounted in the front by its fan screws. Please forgive the picture quality and the non-existence of my cable management.

That was my first plan, or proposal, but immediately I found there's no room w/ the Monsta rads in there. Plus the new bay res and controller will be occupying the odd bays.

I dont understands them at all. I mean, we can replace or get more of everything else, so why not vented sides?
Heck, even a full metal side would be nice, so we can mode it.

But for now so is the only way to get 2 vented sides, is to buy another case or trade with someone who wants 2 window sides.
post #626 of 3874
Yeah, it sucks. It may be more expensive vs the window (stamping vents and filters ). Still, I'm sure it can sell. Maybe if you contact their support directly??? I know Asrock and Msi will sell some parts via support. But, it would be nice if TT had a store like CM.






Finally secured a Monsta 480 wheee.gif.

Wermad, How many Monsta 480s are you going with?

I just sent a message to Thermaltake Australia about a ventilated side panel and they said that they expect to have them available in Australia by the tenth of May. They might be selling the side panels if you message them. Then again, Thermaltake Australia could be mistaken. I'll try to put my name down for one and update in a month or so if I manage to get one.

One thing though guys about the vented panel: the rad mounted on its side doesn't line up with the perforations. The vents are about 20mm above the rad position. So part of the air flow (if exhausting) hits the solid part of the panel.


I would recommend to run this as an intake though.
