post #12751 of 22279
Got my S8 a few months back, and whilst I am not going to be able to start building in it till this fall and this coming spring, decided to to toss my aquadrives in there to see how the fit works out.

The answer? Tight. Very Very Tight.



Question is, will there be enough room to run a pair of hoses, cables, and the overlap of a RVE or X99-WS in there.. Opinions?

Take it from me. You won't be disappointed. I'm still awe struck and attempting to glue together my jaw which shattered when it hit the floor. biggrin.gif

@Panther Al

Wow Asus WS-E X99 in S8 that's insane. Board is bigger than case itself. biggrin.gif Seriously tho, put this badboy on it NL-NSB Asus X99 E WS - Fullcover or this NL-NSB Asus X99 E WS - Fullcopper
to increase board badassery even higher.

Tight fit... LOL I think that understatement of the year.thumb.gif

Thats why I am looking at the X99-WS smile.gif Not because of how nice that block looks - I'd get it in black derlin or copper topped if I could - but because I could load it up with a M.2 Drive and still have Quad SLI.


Oh, and avoid the red of the ROG theme.

Exactly my point of view. If I can paint red over (like EVGA Classified) that's fine, if not (ports/slots/etc) board is dead for me. No matter how good board is. D.E.A.D.Period.

So I bought my first Case Labs case!

  • 1 x Caster Kit
  • 1 x Flex-bay 5.25 Device Mount - Short Nonconforming
    (Color: Black (2-3 business days for processing))
  • 1 x Mercury S8
    Case Color: Black and White Two Tone
    Form Factor: SSI EEB
    Top Chassis Mount: Drop-in 120.3 x 2
    Top Cover: 36mm Extended Ventilated
    Left Door: Standard Window with Ventilation
    Right Door : XL Window
    Front Cover: Ventilated
    Flex-Bay Configuration: 120.2 Mount with Solid Bay Covers
    Power and Reset Switch: Standard Power/Reset Switches with Sleeved Cables
    I/O Panel: USB 3.0/HD Audio
    Add the S8 120.3 side mount? Yes

Going to put two 360s up top and two 240s in the front. Not sure on the depth I can use on the Flex Bay radiator if I use the EK-UNI Pump Holder on the accessory mounting point to put a D5 behind it

Very Excited thumb.gif

BTW @JourneymanMike, the idea for this purchase came from my girlfriend. When she bought me (I bought the case) the AquaComputer 290X water blocks you said I should marry her. Well ... I'm doing just that smile.gif Exciting times indeed!

Starting a Build Log: Daedalic

Yes, she's awfully nice to get you the blocks and I guess I did suggest that you should marry her... Remember to post pictures of you and the bride!! She will feel honored to be on OCN!

Oh yea the case looks good on paper! Build Log?

Back to the SMA8. Say I fit a 360 rad in the front. And I also want to have another fan as intake. Would I need to order the 120.4 (480) flex bay mount? Would that also interfere with the midplate?

Yes, that would work depending on the orientation of the 360 rad... Inlet and Outlet ports on the bottom. It won't go with the ports on the top...

Another option would be a 360 Flex Bay Mount and a 120 mount or fan box

The 480 mount is the best and most economical way to go

Better wait till someone with an SMA8 can answer from experience!

My plan was to order the extended 31mm top, so that way I can place a 480 up top, and leave the 360 in the front (above the midplate), and then leave room for a fan to blow air in. I already have a 360, and I don't want to go through the hassle of selling it (and losing money) to get another 240.
