post #10021 of 22194
Hi Guys, . . Quick question . .

When it comes to mounting case fans on the front . . (TH10A in my case)

I can see where there are cutouts that look to have mounting holes for 4 X 120mm fans on the service side, . . is this correct?

Also on the mobo side, (flex bay side) . . . To mount fans, do I need to order rad mounts for the number and size, (120 or 140) fans that I want to have there, or is there a fan mount only accessory to do that, or is that capability built into the vented flex bay covers?

Thanks in advance,

Darlene

I was looking at getting the 120 x 2 for a flex bay radiator do they fit inside that do you know?

You're right on for the service side, they're for 120mm fans. The case comes with 1 HDD rack that goes on that side (fan mount + 4 drives), you can purchase extras for all 4 spaces. And no, the spacing is such that it won't fit a rad there...

On the flexbay side, you need to add rad mounts in your choice of fan configuration, the covers are only that wink.gif. The TH10A has 13 bays, so lots of choices. You could even mix 120 & 120mm fans if you so desired... Max avail is 120.4 (takes 12 bays) or 140.3 (takes 11 bays).


Would be interesting to see what you do with one of these... thumb.gif

If I understand correctly then, I can mount a 120 fan in the HDD cage that comes with the case in the service side, and then 3 more will mount to the case where the blanks come by default?

I'm not yet sure on how many bay devices I'll need to have, so I guess if I order a 240 and a 360, I'll be covered.

Thanks again

You got it perfectly! And yes, Caselabs always includes covers, so you can have fans, open space, or sealed as you wish. Or, make a 120-shaped res or 3 so you can see them from the front.

Hmmm maybe 3 loops with red - yellow -green? Computer plus traffic lights.... biggrin.gif

On the outside of an SM8...









The filters are much easier to clean when placed on the outside of the case, especially the front 120.3 RAD mount and the bottom for the PSU ...

It's a matter of personal preference as far as looks go, I feel that they are not so bad outside the case. This build is for performance, benchmarking and fun - not so much for show...

i would recommend going with custom filter sizes that way you can oversize them and not see the outline through them !

yes @it diva

you can mount the fans direct to the frame or buy these ( on psu side )
www.caselabs-store.com/fan-mount-120mm-x-25mm-hdd-bay/

i personally prefer these

on mobo side you will need a rad mount !

I'm having trouble fitting my 480 sr1 in the top of my sm8. It's too long to fit. All I can think of is run push-pull (which seems rather pointless for a low fpi rad) or buy some gasket thingy which would have to be rather thick.
Does anyone have any other solution?
post #10030 of 22194
I kept mine on the outside of my S5 to make them easily removable instead of pulling my flex any out to clean it.
