Just a thought. Good luck with your decision either way. thumb.gif


Nahhhhh,

The TX10 / TX10-D just doesn't work for me, for the same reason that the STH10 or SMA8 wouldn't.

All of them are made for builds with lots of rads, and I doubt I'll ever do another build or refresh, (except maybe a SSF) that isn't a rad / chiller hybrid.

Here in the tropics, where it's summer all year round, all the rad space in the world still can't get your coolant temp any lower than ambient, so my voltages and overclocks are more limited than in cooler climates.

By adding plate style heat exchangers in a loop with just moderate raddage, and then having a chiller loop that runs thru the exchangers, I have the option to bring the main loop coolant below ambient where I can get better clocks with lower GPU / CPU temps at high load levels. . . . .

Additionally, at low to moderate loads, I don't need to run the chiller, as the rads are sufficient, and I don't have the noise of 50 fans on half a dozen rads running.


I'm not sure how great my setups would be for other locations, but for here, nothing else comes close for a serious, multi GPU setup.

I actually pondered if that was a feasible option, . . . . . but it's not

Now on the other hand, . . . . a Stretched Limo TH10A could work . . . . . Though I haven't gotten any offers of sponsorship from CL towards that end . . . biggrin.gif

Actually though, I still like having the chiller connect with QDs, since it's not really required to be able to use the pc for most everyday uses.


Going forward, I'm patiently waiting for shipping quotes so I can get a gunmetal TH10A and a full kit of accessory items on the way . . thumb.gif


Now if they just had a metallic, charcoal gray option, something like this, to two-tone with white:

Could you explain Stretched Limo and details of "full" kit briefly please,
this one is completely new to CL. redface.gif

By full kit of accessories, I mean all the same additional accessory items like rad mounts, drive mounts, and fan mounts as I have for my white TH10A.

I'm looking to be able to swap parts between the gunmetal one I'm ordering, and the white one I already have to see how variations of the two-tone theme work out.


The Stretched Limo reference is to splicing multiple cases together end to end to create a stretched version of that case . . . . see the build in my sig.

Currently the only thing stopping me from getting the S8 that i really want if lack of space. Much sadness to be had.
post #11949 of 22275
Can anyone quickly tell me if i have the Caselabs TH10A and i want the window on the left side of the case with motherboard facing that way as well do i build the case in reverse or do i need to get a different window door made etc ?

Lack of space for the case? Because the case itself really isn't lacking, especially with pedestals.
