Hoot....everything up and running (almost...downloading a large game still sucks:baaasmile).

All I'm going to say is, I'm going to freeze when winter comes back. The inside of my case is running about 20 degree C (on both sides), and I can feel the cold air coming out of the rads even with the fans at 1000-1100 rpms. drum.gif

Received an M8. Great case! Not quite finished with the build but at least up and running for now. Finishing touches should be complete in a few weeks.

got the TH10 the other day... this thing is BIG. much bigger than i expected. I had fun rolling the box end over end.

So I'm really embarassed to post this, but here's a summary of the events of the past few days.. (i do not own a camera, sorry)

First off the holes for the fan screws are too small. I'm NOT drilling this case, need to get some different hardware for fan mounting.. Anyway, I got everything transferred in from my old case with no major problems (other than fan screws). I couldn't really figure out where to mount the pump and res so I just ziptied the pump on top of the power supply and ziptied the res to one of the rad fans. (I plan on just getting a dual bay pump/res soon, so not important, very temporary.)

While getting it setup, I had some molex pins pop out of the connector on me... I hate those things.. so I put the pins back in in what I THOUGHT was the correct order.

Turned it on for leak test.. I hear some cracking noise .. ***.. now there's SMOKE. OMG ***. turned off. I had the red/black pins mixed up. So my dvd drive is officially fried. no worries.

Got that all cleared up, hauled the thing over into my bedroom (its like dishwasher size), hooked it up, turned on.. No beeps, no post. *** **** Went through the whole thing of trouble shooting/swapping, figured the PSU is fried from the previous mishap. Swapped PSU with known good one, still no post...

Turns out I am seriously retarded... The mobo tray of the TH10 had extra standoffs underneath the mobo. I didn't think anything of this.. they were shorting out the board.biggrin.gif Removed extra standoffs, re did loop a little better, all set. cheers.gif haha

I'm really excited with this case. SO much room to add various things, lots of space. sniper.gif Now i'm going to settle down for a month, and then the 480mm rad fun will begin.

Only thing I would suggest so far is to resize the fan screw holes (am I missing something here?), and the slit at the top to allow fan cables to slide down should also reach into the PSU side of the case. Some of the front panel cables are too short for TH10. Mobo tray should be extended 1 inch to close up that gap, my cables are showing.

BTW it still smells like burnt plastic in here. mmmm

They made the holes intentionally small to allow for different screw sizes since you cannot make a hole smaller but you can make it larger with either a simple tapping tool or a small drill bit. It allows for greater range of screws to be used.

The slot at top panel - you are meant to run only the wires through there not the wires with connectors, you reconnect the connectors after running wires - this is similar to most cases I have used that have top or bottom slots for running fan wires into the case.

All H series cables come with an extender for the front panel wires- if you didn't get one in your package you should let Jim know.

Jim has mentioned that extra gap is to allow for further cable management and something else I cannot remember why lol he has responded to it a few times before.

Sounds like you are having an adventure though smile.gif

I did the same thing with my M8. Only took me 4 hours to figure out what the problem was:o

I am so glad to hear i'm no the only who has done that - I really thought I was. Thanks for coming forward. grouphug.gif Now I wonder how many motherboards have been RMAed because of extra standoffs.

Not sure what you're getting at here... My point is, these wires are running down and are visible in the mobo side of the case; ideally the hole would also be able to reach into the psu side, such that I could run them back down through there and keep them out of the clean mobo side.

Do you mean I should extend the fan cables to keep the white connector out on the top close to the fan? I could and eventually probably will do that... but unless I cut a second hole you are still going to see the wire on the mobo side. (The connector is currently hidden in the psu side.)

Looks like I either left the extender in the box (very possible, during unboxing I was running around like a crackhead) or I did not receive them. No worries I had plans to and would rather sleeve and extend the cables manually months from now. I enjoy soldering and wiring, it's always been a good hobby. grouphug.gif

Jim says the fan screws are 6/32, the holes are that size by design to allow for the guy who uses these screws to do so, while also allowing me to drill a larger hole if I could actually drill straight. That's fine - can always subtract, cannot add. This is probably not worth the cost, but could it be built with interchangeable threaded inserts there to accept 6/32 or the larger screws... larger reverse threaded thing screws into case panel, with variable size hole in the center for different screw sizes.. not worth the cost but would be a nice touch.. i should just go buy some proper drill bits and a file.. and probably some paint

and i need to get my drill re-chucked cause of my idiot roommate who used it sideways for half an hour to grind this broken door knob out of the hole. ******* idiot
