In most situations only 2 holes need to be drilled and is much easier than one might think if they haven't done it before. Here are examples of a res mounted like you want. All of these builds would have had the builder drill holes beside the motherboard.




Thx Kevin for these pics, they look really nice. I never drill stuff before so can you tell me what size of the drill do i need? And what kind of screw and nuts do I need to attach to the case after I drill those holes? I suppoed you have to use "nuts" to secure the screw since the holes are not threaded?

No problem! For a drill bit something like a 5/32" bit would be good, but I would suggest getting a kit and not just a single bit. You get more for you money, and it ensures you will have the right bit fore the job. Also try to find HSS (high speed steel) bits because they will last longer and are meant for drilling in metal. This kit doesn't say they are HSS rated, but they are a nice starter set and can be used for drilling in metal, the res will come with mounting hardware so no worries there.

As a final tid bit of advice consider getting a center punch. This one looks okay for the price, but i can't say i have experience with it

What a center punch does is creates a little indent in the metal so the tip of the drill bit sits inside of it like a seat. Otherwise what happens is that the bit will want to "walk".

Thx again for the infos. So after I drill holes, what kind of screw do I need to attach the Reservoir to the case? Like do you guys sell them? or i hvae to get from amazon or something?

The mounting hardware should be included with the reservoir. This is an install manual for an EK res. Note step 2.1 where is says to use the enclosed hardware for mounting.

Kevin, Is it possible to get a two tone case with the outside one color and the inside another? Not talking anything crazy just gray outside black inside SMA8 or a gray outside white inside.

If you mean exterior parts one color and interior parts another, sure. If you mean the outside of a door one color and the inside of the same door another color, no. In short, we can do just about any two tone color scheme, but each individual part needs to be the same color.

If I buy the SM8 case, can I buy and use the "hinges" of the door panel of the Magnum cases and use them for the Merlin SM8 case? Are those hinges interchangable?
