Sounds like a monster of a system. I also can't wait for pics!

Oh dear GOD Levesque! WTHman??? Thats overdone!....good job
post #1054 of 1472
Hey guys. I'm looking at getting a MM tower case, and I need some feedback from current MM owners. I have a few questions, so I'll list them out in a hopefully easy-to-read manner. And I apologize if these have been answered before. I have been searching, but I haven't found the answers I'm looking for.

Finish Options: Is mirror black basically a high-gloss black? Is the anodized aluminum a brushed a smooth surface, or is it rough/gritty? And the wrinkle black is...wrinkled? Is it like super rough, or what is it's look and texture? Can I get different panels in different finishes?

Size and spacing: Can the Pinnacle 24 fit a 120.4 radiator and fans internal in the top? Does that cause you to sacrifice the top drive bay? What about a Pinnacle 18 with a 120.3 in the top? Can the Monticle fit an internal radiator in the top at all (even the Monticle 24 with a 120.3)? Or does the PSU get in the way no matter what? Is there enough room behind the mobo tray for cable management?

Panels: Can the Pinnacle PSU bracket be positioned below the motherboard tray? (i.e. a bottom mounted PSU with a normal motherboard orientation)

Thank you all so much!

I KNOW: that brushed aluminum is quite rough and not sanded at all. you can sand it yourself or even pay more to have it chromed*
I WOULD THINK: that mirror black is glossy and that wrinkled black is likely to be something like painted black with some kind of plastic wrap trick to add texture to it but ask someone else about that....please
About the finishes, are you asking to get individual panels in different colors as one case or if you can get different altogether? the answer is yes but itll be considered CUSTOM and youll pay.

Fitting rads on the top is possible as long as its set at 15mm spacing( very few rads go with 25mm spacing) you would have to sacrifice the top bay just for the rad itself and no fans included unless theyre the 12mm deep ones. so really youll be giving up the top two bays for that. But Im not forgetting that you can flip the front panel anyway so that the bays are on the bottom anyway. on the 24 this isnt an issue with fitting graphic cards but with an 18 it would be most likely given that newer cards are long. If my bay devices were down there minus their connectors the dvd drive would come to within half an inch of the right side of the motherboard.

about the psu, its about 4 inches from the top and that can fit a rad with ONE fan def without blocked airflow. the PSU "bracket" is a panel that can be flipped as well of which youll put your motherboard up top. This would be worse as it would put motherboard heatsinks and cpu coolers or even cpu waterblocks into the way of the rad anyway so youre back at it just not fitting still.

I would just look into putting the rad up front instead to bypass all of this. 3x 120 rad of course with either the 24 or 18 options. though it may work out putting a triple 120 on top inside of the 24 pinnacle or monticle but then again drive bays and psu problems, so again up front may be better. I have mine inside of a pedestal if you were thinking of adding that. you could even run the rads parallel that way :S

I was thinking different pieces, each with their own finish. For example, a brushed aluminum drive bay with anodized aluminum everything else.

I don't mean to be rude, but I don't really understand what you are talking about here. I don't know what case you are talking about (there is both an 18 and a 24 version of both the Monticle and Pinnacle), and I'm not sure how graphics cards play into all this. When you talk about the radiator spacing, my plan was to get XSPC radiators, which have good price/performance ratio with low CFM fans, and they also have the traditional 15mm spacing. Are you suggesting that with a 15mm spacing radiator, I would be able to install that internally on a Monticle 18? I get that I'm underestimating the underhang from the radiator and fans as far as the drive bay is concerned. Ideally, I want to avoid flipping the front panel so that I can have both a front radiator and a top radiator (and I believe if I rotate the front panel, the top and front radiator would get in each other's grills )

I'm assuming you're talking about the Pinnacle, since there is no way the PSU is 4" from the top of the Monticle. I'm not sure what you mean by "panel that can be flipped as well of which youll put your motherboard up top." Do you mean that, in order to rotate the PSU, you'll have to orient the mobo in an rATX position? And how would a radiator get in the way of the CPU? I can't visual what you're talking about.

I've always been planning on installing a front radiator. I didn't mention that since I assumed that was obvious. My bad. My goal is to have upwards of 120.5 total equivalent radiator space without ballooning my build with a pedestal or other feature. I probably should have mentioned this earlier, but I'm trying to build a whisper quiet machine with 6950 CF, so I'll need a lot of radiator space since I'll be using low CFM fans.

Finally had some time to take 1 pic. LOL! Too busy.

But the Monolith is fully awaken now. Still missing some little things, like 1 Nautilus fan grill at the bottom, Crossfire fittings, etc... But they are coming in the mail.

When I will get some more time, I will try to take more pictures.
