KC @Caselabs is the best at customer support. So good news got upgraded to the all white BH7 but bad news my time got reset on the shipping but figured I waited this long what's another month or so. Also picked up two be quiet! Pure Wings 2 for the top fans in case I need the extra cooling.

KC is the Master to my Blaster!

No, but really, he does such an amazing job.

Folks, I did not realized this before until I got my hands on the case and started taking apart. Jim design for the front allows us to take everything out (fan mount, small piece of mid plate and so on). Here is a shot of the BH4 with open space in front. You have exactly 62 mm there to play before the start of the MB tray.





and here the pump mounted:

Good ! but does it mean you could stick a rad there?

Absolutely, yes. In fact I am almost convinced that one would be able to cram 2x 240 mm in the BH4, as long as one is creative with the reservoir which is just crazy. That is the amount of rad I have in Grey Matter (S5) which is a lot larger than the bh4. But a 240 top and 120 front is easy peasy. As for reservoirs for those not willing to go custom route Aquacomputer sell the Aqualis XT which are only 50 mm so it would fit perfectly. There are the combos with ddc too which would also fit in front perfectly.

Maybe silly but why not fixing the reservoir in the exterior back of the chassis ? That would allow for a vertical large res, just an idea.

It is a possibility but to me is not only ugly but destroy the purpose of the small case in the first place. You want something small, self contained either for transport or just to look good as you HTPC. Putting the reservoir outside would kill the transport part and while beauty is in eyes of the beholder and someone might think tube outside beautiful I personally do not find attractive. Just mine 2cents.gif.

For those who never saw those baby reservoirs:

They are beautiful. Let me see if I find a pic of it...

You could put a 108mm tall res together using Monsoon parts.

nice but what is the width? The width part is the tricky for this case. You only have 62 mm there so 60 mm reservoirs are no good unless you manage to go over the MB due to the mounting... The aqua ones are only 50 mm width.

edit - Yeah interesting reservoir. But at 60 mm and with that nice mount they have you will be way over the MB and if you use a radiator on top that would prevent it...
