gskill has lifetime warranty at least all of them i have seen unless you remove the heat spreaders !~

but up to you

min i would recommend with gpu/gpu (* you only count cpu/gpu when finding rad space, generic idea is 120 plus ( #of cpu/gpu x120 ) { aka a 120 for each component you want to cool plus 1 } ) personally i just do 2x120 for each component you have- again this is just a min amount which ever you use

you only count gpu/cpus nothing else will really make enough heat to worry about ( mobo blocks, ram blocks ect)

so your baseline you want a min of 360

from there it just depends on how silent you want your rig, as for me i stuff all my cases as much as i can !~

Your mom has your best interest in her heart, sounds like she's a good mom . . . Likely she wouldn't let you buy a 600hp Corvette either, even if you had the money for it.

Not a lot of people can understand how a case that costs so much, can, especially to its owners, be worth every cent they paid for it.

I have no doubt that everyone who owns a half million dollar Lamborghini feels the same way about it. . . . so it's not a case you'll be able to very effectively plead to your mom.


Making an end run around her wishes by buying one on the "carefully pre-owned" market will probably tick her off enormously, unless you specifically get her blessings.

There's just not that much savings, gently used versus new, especially for CL cases, that it's likely to be a mind changing factor, but it is worth a try.


Alternatively, you should look at the X9, it's like an S8 stretched front to back by about 6 inches so it fits 420 and 480 sized rads.

It's probably the most bang for the buck there is for a watercooling friendly case that actually looks pretty nice and has some room for customization and mods.

At around $180, it should get a thumb.gifthumb.gif from mom. Once you do well with that, Mom may well be a lot more accepting of a Caselabs upgrade down the road.

Why should he look at me? I am not a case. I am a people.

Can anyone take a picture with measurements of the 'Right" (PSU) side of the S8 showing the distance between the rear of a flexbay radiator mount to the motherboard tray (preferably SSI-EEB but ATX is OK)?

I'm trying to figure out what space I have for pump and reservoir. With 7-8 weeks to wait for the S8 I want to have the parts ready for a build party

I can understand what you mean. When I said I want to try and buy one used, that would probably lower the cost and make her more willing to let me get it. And heeeeeeeeeell no, I saved up all my money for 2 months for a CL case, if I get a thermaltake case I'll have all this money left over and wind up buying some useless crap for my build.. Plus, thermaltake is ehh....

The mobo tray takes away another 30mm from the screw point so you have about 182mm from the flex mount to the start of the standard tray.

Not the best angle, sorry:

The X9 ain't no Caselabs, but it ain't no POS either, . . . .

So if it's the one case that lets you create the loop you want, and get your folks to endorse cost wise, . . . That kinda makes it the most viable option.

As far as having money left over, it might give you more and better options for other aspects of the build . . . . being able to discern between useless crap and well thought out upgrades usually comes with experience . . you have to get it sometime.

This. Did mentioned to him the X9 is a nice option. But Dar really hits the nail, if you have a slightly bigger (CL) budget, but can't do an S8, the X9 is cheaper, and though it won't match cl in quality, its a nice canvas to make it your own with some modding. Even some slight modding can yield some very good results. Its like wanting the GT model but settling for the Eco-boost model. You can use the saved money to dial it up a notch and have your cake. But, if you're not 18 yet, a good life lesson is to learn to crawl before you try to run. You might be need to start slowly like many of us do.
