post #11441 of 22174
I'm getting my m8 on the 2nd of April. I'm way too excited. I going to run one xt 45 360 and one monsta 360. My first question is which rad should go in the top and which on the bottom (ascetics/ease of tubing) and 2 how should I wire them up? Ex. Run the 360 static and ramp fans in monsta when gaming or what smile.gif?


Running a 4790k oc to 4.6 and a gtx 780
Thanks

Finally got caught up in reading 1300+ posts since December! Very happy to look over all the build pictures and advice that was posted in the last few months.

Just got my caselabs s5 a few days ago! Thinking of mounting a 35mm 360 rad at the side where you'll usually mount your SSD/HDD like this. How should i go about doing that? Would the drop in side mount work?

@jmng14 I'm not sure if anyone else has done a side-mounted rad without the pedestal, but the mod was done by the original owner Shadow_Foxx and Bill Owen from Mnpctech.

Here is the build log with the mod: Linky
Facebook video of the case after the mod: Linky

I apologize in advance if the pictures look grainy, they were only taken with my phone.

What it looks like now:



The HDD/SSD compartment has plenty of room to fit the XSPC EX240 + a set of GTs in push:



This is what the inside looks like:



The fans do stick out a little, but with the ventilated window, there is about 1cm or 1/4" of space between the fan blades and the vents.



Problems I had with a 35.5mm-thick XSPC EX240 with 25mm GTs:

The case blocks the left fan from aligning to the fan holes, so it was necessary to dremel parts of the mid-plate and bottom frame. Not a pretty job since I didn't bother to file it, but no one is going to see it anyway. wink.gif





Edit: Since you are rocking the S5, you may not run into the same problem as your case is a bit wider than my S3. Upon reading your build log, I'm not sure if putting the radiator on the inside will work out as well. I did try it previously when I was using the non-ventilated window, but I had to scoot over my PSU to the edge, which meant drilling new holes. You will also lose being able to mount 1 drive on the stealth mount.

Photos of when I did this:

Beautiful job on that S3.
Quite amazing what you fit into it with a bit of modding. The black and white color scheme looks really good, with the matching painted GT's.
The blue coolant sets it off nicely, through the 290 block.thumb.gif
Moar photos!

Thanks! I actually did a lot of work on it this past weekend, where I removed a third radiator from the rear and switched my layout around. Having more radiator is nice, but it was useless since the majority of the heat was exhausting through that rad. I'll post some before/after pictures later or actually start a build log for it.

My build used to be a pure black/white build with Mayhem's Pastel Ice White coolant, but I felt like it needed something to pop out more since the case and components were already minimalistic.

Looks great indeed @kokin and the additional bottom 240 mm its exactly what I am planning to do with my incoming S5. Quite a punch for such a small case (360 mm up, 240 mm front and 240 mm bottom). Here are some opposite (or negatives) of yours GTs in black and white too:





the one in the front rad was the prototype. Just finished reassembling all 6 fans I need tonight.
