120.2 (240) Cover Plate

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Is this the same plate that comes with the S8 case?

If so would it be possible to get this plate in a thicker material as I would like to mount a pump res combo off of it and at the current thickness its just to flimsy.

After all we did not pay good money for cheep case. If I wanted flimsy materials in my case I could have bought any number of other cases.

You might want to rephrase your request for help to one slightly less insulting to CL.

The double cover plates that the S8 has with it are simply fan hole covers, nothing more. The single upright plate between the PSU and HDD bays, however, is much heavier and was the intended utility plate for us to drill.

If you want to hang a heavy item off the inside of the double fan hole on the front left you will need a pump/rad bracket of the type that fits 120mm fans.

I picked up one of these and will but putting both of my pumps on it. Horizontally ... so no real reason to fight too hard with gravity.

I thought I was bragging them up was not meant as an insult.

The fact is it's the only part in the case that I have come across that used such a thin aluminum. There is no reason that I can see to use such thin stuff.

I looked at that as well but for the 120.2 plate it appears it mounts at top and bottom rather then down the sides. I would be using it for the front of the case fan holes.

I guess Ill have to go visit a metal shop and have it custom built which is what I was trying to avoid.

Cover plates are just that - simple plates to block fan openings. There were never intended to be structural. From the beginning, we have had mounting plates that were specifically designed to be used for hardware such as pumps, etc. Not only are they much stronger, but they are designed to provide clearance for screws & wiring as well. They can be found here

It is hard to tell from the picture will that 120.2 plate fit the front fan left side where the blanking plate is on a Mercury S8 quick order case?
