SMA8 addon parts and shopping

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi there.

I have a list of questions about the "Magnum SMA8" I'm planning.

I'm trying to order a case and parts I need for a build that would accomodate a fully water-cooled EKWB system on X99 with dual GPUs.

What I'm missing or can't find is:

- lower chamber with already exisitng holes for the tubes

since I need to put the largest possible radiator to the bottom, top and front. I'd love to also know if it's possible to put a push-pull config down in the lower chamber and the upper one and have clearance for Corsair AX1500i (150mm x 86mm x 225mm).

I'd use either a 560mm 600 x 145 x 45mm radiator or a 480 520 x 130 x 60mm, but I'm missing the bottom chamber tube openings.

Also, I've seen in a video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktCxPOY0BfM) that there is a much
-taller top radiator cover/mount

that could accommodate a thick radiator and push-pull, but can't find it in the store...

Please assist as I'd like to order just about everything I need at once go.

My config:
- 3 radiators: top, front, bottom chamber of suggested thickness (your proposal for best fit) and push-pull if possible
- two pumps and two reservoirs (is it possible to have externally mounted reservoirs for easier replenishing?)
- E-ATX board (Rampage V Ex.) with a thick passive cooling shield at the top part (thus need clearance on the top)
- dual GPU system


Thank you!

There's a reason you won't find it - where exactly should the holes be?

That depends on your choice of parts, design of your loop, and personal esthetics. So to get the holes exactly right..... you need to locate and drill them yourself. thumb.gif



edit - the extra-tall 120mm cover was discontinued as it looked too ugly to many so no-one bought it.

Well, true, it's easier to drill than to bend tubing to it. smile.gif

And the extra-tall one... so, what's the clearance up there? How much fits there?

The extended top is 39mm, so you can fit fans above and the rad below, lots of room to still go push-pull. Guessing at least 35mm clearance (sorry don't have one so can't measure)

Extended top is included or needs to be bought? I was told it's not available any more.

There was a 120mm (high-rise) that was discontinued, you choose between the flat top and the 39mm extended (extra cost) when you order your SMA8 from Caselabs. If you get from elsewhere, check the configuration to see which top comes with it...

Due to the millions of possible hardware configurations out there, we don't provide any pass throughs on our chassis since it wouldn't be compatible with a wide variety of those hardware configurations. People want the cleanest runs possible and that can only be achieve by drilling the holes after the hardware is in and everything is measured.

Understandable.

Now, something bothers me: I'm planing on EATX (RVE) and thinking if it, dual GPUs and rads would fit...? I'm planing on using dual 360 60mm at the top with push-pull - if possible....

You can only do one 360 rad (up to a 480) in the roof. In the chamber below you could do two 360 Rads depending on the the PSU.

Would Mercury S8 be able to fit dual 360 at the top? It seems that Mercury S8 can fit dual 360 at the top, 1 360 at the bottom and PSU and drain can be at the back side with even two reservoirs inside (for both sides)?
