SMA8 is gorgeous, but the TH10A better meets my needs. - Page 5

post #41 of 51
I had the same question before I ordered mine regarding the vented door. The full lenth vented door is an older model, and I was told they had problems with the door flexing too much. The only type of vented door they have now is the version with vents around where the psu's are/would be.

It's the small vents. The full length vents were in TH10.

Cool. That's what I want.

A bit of a bloggy type post:

I've just come back off a short vacation. My plan was to place my order now, not least so I'd be back home to take delivery after another forthcoming longer vacation in a couple of weeks time.

So I've entered my usual pre-ordering dithering phase in which I brace myself for dropping so much money.

But an issue has arisen to complicate things. I run my current box 24x7, but I shut it down while I was away (as you do). On starting it back up again, it turns out that two of my drives have given up the ghost. I now need to factor in the cost of replacing the drives and seeing if I can recover the data from the old ones. It wasn't critical data, but it's inconvenient none-the-less. I see an 8TB HGST He8 in my future. biggrin.gif

Ironically, my prospective new TH10A would sport much better hard drive cooling.

One failed drive is a 1TB HGST from 2007 (or thenabouts). The other is a 4TB HGST that I bought last year; I shall have to see if I can recover the data before RMA'ing it.

OMG!!! I've done it. I've pulled the trigger. ohno-smiley02.gif

Yay! And look at that order number!

That's plenty of drive cages! And out of curiosity, what is your plan for two 120.2 flex-bay radiator mounts?

Order #15000 today. I ordered a Nova 7 weeks ago and my number was 143xx. So they have received about 650 orders in 7 weeks or 13 orders per day.

Ah. The 120.2's are just gonna have intake fans, no rads. One 120.2 at the top, one at the bottom. One bay left in the middle for the optical which I'll stealth. It'll be vertically symmetrical.

A bit bonkers? Yeah probably, but what the hell.

I've changed my idea about the rads you see, which are now gonna be 480's top and bottom in the mb side and 240's top and bottom in the psu side. I'm thinking EK XE's all round with low speed Vardar's in push-pull.

And check out the t-shirts. tonguesmiley.gif

Are you sure you want to do that? Have you received your TH10A yet?
First thing: This case is HUGE! You need a big desk for that. smile.gif
Second thing: This case can get really heavy when filled with components! My TH10A weights ~60kg! You probably have no handles on the case, so lifting it ~1m above ground is a feat on its own... rolleyes.gif
