Merlin SM8 design, will it work?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi Caselabs,
I am looking to purchase a Melin SM8.
Below are the customizations I am interested in:
Case Colour Black
MB Door Style XL Large Window
Cable Side Door Ventilated
Top Cover Ventilated
Top Chassis Mount Drop-in Style with 120.4 Mount
Bottom Chassis Mount 120.4 Radiator Mount
Power and Reset Switch Standard Power/Reset Switches with Sleeved Cables
I/O Panel USB 3.0/HD Audio
Flex-Bay Configuration 120.3 (360) Mount with Ventilated Bay Covers

Below is the layout I am planning:
Bluelines are soft tubing, dashed blue line will be travelling to back of case.


Can you please provide some feedback on the build I am planning? Will it work?

We're happy to provide information about our cases, but as a matter of policy, we don't comment on build layouts. There are simply too many variables for us to stand behind any advice we might give. It is a good question to pose to pose to the user community here and on the club thread. There are quite a few customers with extensive experience that might be willing to help out.
