Does anyone have any alternative ideas, thought, or suggestions . . .

...I love how my CaseLabs wishlist is almost as expensive as the gear I'll be picking up for the benching rig! (Actually, it might be a tad cheaper, depending on what route I go with a few other things).

I'll get there eventually, it's just like I said - other things wind up taking a higher priority, but the cases are definitely on the list.

Want me to see if there are some Bitspower 600mm rads left? If you have noticed their current rads are a bit Black and Icy but their older ones were never really released.. No stealing here, it's an OEM deal.

Have you had a chance to test the new EK rads? Wondering if you come to the same conclusions that XtremeRigs did?

His review started that they perform even better than the XTX rads, which, happen to be some of my personal favorite.

Ironically the TT issue has been keeping me from putting that review up, what with all the gossip and communications with people going on.

My results are similar, but not identical. Note that I am using eLoops and EK weren't kidding when they said these were optimized for Vardar fans. There is a huge pressure drop across the radiator core, and it ends up being a better Alphacool Monsta with the eLoops (which themselves are pretty good radiator fans too, but not GT/Vardar level) in push only. I will try to get it published by tomorrow if possible but it is no XTX replacement- definitely in its stride with good fans in push-pull, but not a low fan speed single fan optimized version.

One thing weird was F_F's sample had the screw holes not hitting any of the tube channels while it does in mine. Need to get that and a few other details sorted out too.

Thanks for the offer, but I have the AMS rads, and the copper fins and stainless steel sides look soooo sweet with a white case and white led fans.

A 420 and a big PSU is about 28" long without cramping the cable area, so an overall of 30" to 32" would leave enough space in front of the top rads for about a 10" to 12" window in front of each rad, and of course the window on the left side of the front panel.

That's how I'll get them back to the 420 lengths they started out as from the 840 length they are now, or am I missing your thought train?

32" is almost doubling the length of the case eek.gif I know the style you like (I remember the Chopper pic!) but at that point, you either have to mod 2 cases together or do a lot of custom panels; by the time that happens how much of a S8 do you really need? You might need to raise up the MB tray to get enough height for the AMS rads to fit in the sides, so custom top/bottom rear panel/covers - you'll just need the front panel, MB tray and not much else!

Personally if you go that far I'd like to see the rads go front-to-back down the sides (too bad they aren't 560's); maybe if there is enough space you could mod the PSU to sit vertically in the middle of the rear panel? Then the rads could go down both sides equally - maye just stretch it long enough for the whole 840 setup thinking.gif

30" is about 4" more than my TH10As,and about the same more than the X9, so it's not really all that long overall. As far as fitting an 840 or even a 560 . . .

I really don't have room for anything that long anymore. . . the whole idea of the cube case is to be able to run a rad down each side from the front to just in front of the PSUs, and have a rad on each side of the top that runs front to back, but shifted to the rear, so there's room for a window in front of each one.

The PSU's would stay as normal, and the AMS rads are fine with just one set of fans to maintain clearance above the GPUs.

D..

It would definitely be grafting two S8s together to get the desired length . . . .
