I am not familiar with case labs company but every other pc case company has a "safety zone" when they advertise their height restriction of cpu cooler's by at-least 5mm.
If that is the same case with case labs company then cryorig h7 should be able to fit. If case labs is exact to the nearest millimeter for their measurements then obviously it won't fit.

In terms of the pancake cpu cooler's ... don't you think they would actually be good? You intake air from the frost of the case and the top 2 fans at the top of the case you have them as exhaust.
So set the pancake cooler fans to blow air up towards the 2 x exhaust fans and it should be good n my opinion.

Does this case's front 2 fans have a filter placed?


Jim's measurements are pretty exact - he was originally thinking 145mm clearance for the BH2/BH4 but when he actually got in a Cryorig H7 it just barely wouldn't fit (that's with the top fan mount removed). So he's allowing maybe 2~3mm clearance at the updated spec of 142mm. Looks like you have to remove the upper fan mount for most air coolers - it's more designed as a mount for AIO anyways.


Whether or not pancake coolers are as good as a tower? I'm no expert but for me they each have compromises - the pancake will give more surface area at a lower height but will affect RAM access etc. Someone on here was going to use a Cryorig C1 but found it interfered with the height of his RAM sticks. On a ITX board that could be even more critical. On the plus side, however, a pancake cooler blowing down will also more effectively cool your VRMs.


As for filters - full custom rules apply here. Some want, some don't; so CL doesn't provide directly. Many who do add filters use DEMCIflex.

Ah okay.
So that means no fans are included, no usb etc ... cables with the case? Just the case itself and nothing else?

Who is Jim btw? Sorry I am new to case labs.

Jim is the owner /designer at Caselabs. So whenever you see 'CaseLabs' posts above - that's Jim himself!

Oh okay.
If he was trying to aim for 145mm being able to fit but wasn't able to make it possible....Is he going to be adjusting something about that? Maybe increasing the top area by a few millimeter's? Or this is the final case and won't change now?

Any post that shows him trying the cryorig h7?

Case design is already in production and shipping so it is what it is...

I'm on mobile so it's difficult to look, but he did post that it wouldn't fit. I can't recall if he posted pictures though (he did for the EK Predator, but that's because of it having a rather... Tight fit, and recommends 90 degree fittings instead of the straight on like from the factory due to how tight things can get with it)

EK Predator inside the BH2?
I think that thing is to expensive for a LAN build.
I think it's not safe from my POV to run around with the BH2 with a EK predator in it.

Also, great to know a Edmontonian here, I myself am in Cold Lake, 3hrs away from you.

Enthusiasts are willing to drop $900 CAD on a video card, why not $300 CAD on a cooler as well? It's nice that there is an option - whether it is worthwhile to the individual all depends. Some are putting several hundred into building a custom water loop just for the challenge presented to them smile.gif

And while the case seems to be primarily focused on portability given its size and the option for handles, some will be using it for main rigs, htpc's and pretty much anything else they can think of - I for example will be ordering one soon and using it to keep my benching rig tidy,and looking lovely when it isn't in use.

Ah neat, Cold Lake, spent six years of my life there, back when there were a few more squadrons at the base. Kind of a pity how Grand Center doesn't really exist anymore though. So many childhood memories from there,espevially ones involving the big hill and my first bike.

Wow, I've only been here for 2yrs.
Grant center has a couple new stores in the mall and all, isn't that bad but not much to do here as I am originally from Calgary so I'm use to having a-lot more friends and people around me doing different things every other day compared to doing nothing here.

As for the case, in your personal/professional opinion if you want to build a LAN box out of the BH2 and would like to use a air cooler or maybe even a AIO.
What are your suggestions for the best air cooler in the bh2 and the best aio in the bh2?
I am aiming for DEAD QUIET build, it should be pin drop silence when i am just surfing the web.
Also want to be able to have the ability to OC the CPU if i ever decide to in the future.

Thanks.

So that means no fans are included, no usb etc ... cables with the case, no screws?

I have never bought from case labs, so no idea what comes with the case.
Typically when you buy a pc case, it comes with a couple fans maybe, and the usb cable, sound cable attached, screws for fans, filter's usually, etc ..
