Nice setup! No 360 in the bottom? And how's the flow now?

Hopefully!

Also does it come with caster wheels or no...Just realized my plan of quick disconnect between pedestal and top when I LAN won't work because when I put the computer on the ground it would be resting on top of the quick disconnects. If I get caster wheels it'll give it some clearance...

If anyone has some ideas for clips that clip in and out I can use throw them my way!

I just pulled the trigger on one! Now my month+ of waiting starts.

No thanks , Add Tech Station Conversion Kit? No thanks, Add the S8 120.3 side mount? Yes ($19.00))

Was barely shy of 600 after a Caster kit, PSU mount, and shipping. YIKES! The wifey just told me that I have used up my case budget for at least the next 2-3 years, so I'd better love it!


So you got the extended top but no drop-in at all? I'd still suggest getting the mount anyways, you'd only Not want the mount if you're getting the top full window. It doesn't cost any extra with your configuration and nowhere to mount fans or rads would mean the ext top is largely wasted. If you're looking at WhiteWulfe's comments, that was between a drop-in vs. a solid-mount top, not open space thinking.gif

Casters are available separately as an accessory. Comes with rubber feet standard.

You're planning on separating the case & ped much? The two are semi-permanently attached with screws; it's not a quickly-split combo, especially if you have a side-mount rad in the case; you'll need to remove it and maybe the PSU to access the screws.

Going to be coming up with a way to connect/disconnect the two more easily. Only putting a 240 rad in the front bay of the top section.

Would've replied sooner, but hubby and I have been doing some prep work to the living room for the new desks we're hopefully getting in the next 3-4 weeks. Totally can't wait because that's pretty much the biggest hurdle before I can work towards ordering my own CaseLabs case ^_^;;;

Are you planning on putting any radiators up top, or will you be going with just the side mounted 120.3 and flexbay mounted 140.2?

Also I sort of know the feeling with spouses, although I don't have a wife... ....And mine's a tech geek that says I can get an SMA8 (and S8 Test Bench) if he gets an STH10.... Oh, and I then watercool his rig for him too. Silly husbands.

I think the reason they're going that route is to allow for a taller resevoir (XSPC D5 Photon 170, which is 250mm long) and wishes to mount it in the front window area, where clearance can be a potential issue.

That's correct, I don't need the top drop-in mount at this point in time. It's an extra 20 bucks, and if I need to order it down the road, then I've only added another 30 bucks overall.

Hehe about the spousal thing. I build my wife's PCs too (well, at least up until the last one, which she did herself, with very little help from me....*so proud* biggrin.gif). Funny that you mention that, a few months back I ordered a LG 34" 3440x1440 ultrawide monitor to replace my old normal 1440 monitor. I opened it up, hooked it up and she said, "I want one....." *puppy dog eyes* She works from home coding, and since she makes the bulk of our income I gave in and gave it to her. Alas, I still have my old 27" 1440, maybe later this year for me.

Anyway, the more I thought about the mount up top the more I came to realize that I don't plan on using it. I mainly wanted the extra inch or so to make sure that my D5 Photon 170 (250mm tall) fit in there without any issue. I plan on putting a 360 down below as a sidemount (which I need to get a 360mm rad), and a front 280mm rad in the flex bay. The Photon will be mounted in front of the window, so yes, I got the extended for the rez mounting.

Thanks again for the help, I can't wait!

Ok, I got it now - had to go and play with optioning out a S8 before I understood the $$$ difference. That is because I'm always looking at the S5 which doesn't have a solid top option (drop-in only), so didn't realise there was an extra for the mount!

Sorry if causing confusion.
