When that loop is in there, should be tight?

But,
So many people buy cases for what "they are going to do" but will never get around to it 80% of the time before they get bored of the case. I've done this about 4 times over the last 10 years spend too much money on a case only to realize that I can only afford to let it look empty, and see people do it everyday here.

I'm really not hating tho, alot of people would think me spending more money on my case than on my hardware was "stupid" but Hell, it's all about what gets your rocks off anyways.

Thanks - T

Yep

i understand this and i understand it with 1155 chips, only 16 pcie lanes,

but excluding my 1155 build

with other chips though i feel with matx/itx i am not getting full benefit of what i paid for with the cpu

i have quadfire in all but 1 or 2

and i will build another ( thinking 2011 quad core ) with my RIVBE

i want to build a router/nas 2011 has all the pretty sata ports built in !~ i want to put 5 or 6 tb hds in it, at least 8-10 total ( hds not TB )

The Cautious ONe

Agreed. I'll be going (eventually) with the SMA8 for my benching rig with a few extra motherboard trays so I can easily swap out hardware and have a setup for not just dry ice benching (i'm not lugging a 35L dewar up two flights of stairs every time I want fun!) but also to have a nice watercooling loop for day to day benching (quickie 30 min sessions, testing hardware limits before going subzero, running Folding@Home/BOINC as a semi-dedicated rig when not benching, etc). It will be a pretty penny, but at the same time I always wanted a nice, flexible case to do that kind of crazy work. Also, the motherboard trays convert into convenient tech trays tongue.gif

thanks..
the S3 has enough space, considering it's larger compared to other ITX cases out there.
the only problem that i have with this case, is the cable management..
I have to shorten my wires..
anyhow, it's a great case..

Where can I buy a power switch for the CaseLabs with a white led instead of the blue?

I went to the Lamptron web-site, since CaseLabs use Lamptron switches...

I found that any of these retailers sell them

I'm SO close to get this. But that would also mean I would "WANT" another XSPC Photon d5 Pump/Res, and an XSPC RX480 radiator.

wheee.gifwheee.gifwheee.gifWoooo Hooooo wheee.gifwheee.gifwheee.gif


I just got my "dear Darlene" email today:

The status of order #129XX is now Shipped.

My gunmetal TH10A is now incoming . . along with a new white door panel with XXL window for the white one. That way I have XXL windows for both sides of both cases.

I was totally surprised, as it was scheduled to ship a week from now . . . looks like they really are making progress towards reducing the wait time thumb.gif

It's a good thing I've been busy getting parts ordered and things planned out.

I have another 5M roll of superbrite RGB LEDs on the way so I can do something unique wit the base plate since I have a second Farby already.

I also ordered another remote control unit and a pair of Firgeli linear actuators . . . . that way both TH10A builds get to have remote controlled power doors.

Now the hard part . . . finding some vacation time from work so I can work on everything smile.gif

What are you anticipating for rads, I'd look at getting the 39mm extended top so you can mount the top rad fans above the chassis panel so that you can run push-pull with a full thickness rad, since there's only 90mm of clearance above the mobo which limits you to 1 set of fans with the standard top.

Remember you can't run 2 X 480 in the bottom since you have to save room for the PSU, a 480 and a 240 is about it in the basement.

There's also this option for front audio and USB 3, which you can get color matched to the case:

Also don't forget to order the caster kit

Well I currently have an RX360, RX240, and EX240. Without throwing the money out the door, I'm going to use all the rads I currently have (instead of selling them). I would use the RX240 in the front, and mount my RX360 (main side) and EX240 (PSU side) in the bottom. Then I would purchase an RX480 and mount that at the top.

Because money is tight, all I would get is the SMA8 (plus mounts) and RX480. I would use a single loop with my D5 photon, and later on I would add the second loop. In fact, I may not even need a second loop since I'm running a 4770k.

Also, since this is my first build using hard tubing and going "all out", I may wait a few months before I actually place the order. Why? Because I have the Corsair 750D, and I want to get some use out of it before it becomes a paper weight haha. Then I can save up the money and put it aside for a fully custom SMA8 and two loops.

EDIT* just curious... If I were to sell my EX240, would I be able to put an RX360 on the bottom PSU side? What's the biggest PSU that can fit with an RX360? Then I would purchase an EX560 or RX480 and place that on the other side.

If everything would fit
1. RX480 (top)
2. RX240 (front)
3. RX360 (bottom PSU side)
4. EX560 or RX480 (bottom side main)

Everything in push. With that many dads, I would need push/pull.

Please let me know if I could fit those, and I would order the case now, along with the Radiators I would need.
