Anyways, regarding the heat and using both intakes. Would that be okay? Or leave the rad on the main said intake, and the PSU side rad as exhaust? I'm just worried about the rad pushing all the hot air into the other rad as exhaust, and depleting the purpose of the rad.

get a 560 mm for the bottom. It really was made for 140 mm fans not 120mm. This would fit perfectly and is one of the best rads around:

If I went with a 560, that was my option. But what about the rad on the PSU side? Intake or exhaust?

Drawing cooler outside air through the rads will cool your components better. Use the rear fan as exhaust. If you have some dead air spots in the case (between the GPU's for example) you could always add a fan to move that...
But would it be okay to have all the fans in the bottom as intake... Meaning, where would all the hot air go?

To the other side. The case has lots of vent holes that the air can escape too.

My pic taking skills are not good, but here's some recent shots of my SM8 w/2 pedestals.
Interior shots are really hard as my camera is really picky about light levels and actually works best on Auto most of the time.
A few pages back I posted the top opened up for drive placement if anyone is interested.

Just to recap, I extended the top by using standoffs to push the "lid" out further, and then used acrylic to fill in the outside, thus creating some open space for drive placement.


The psu was wrapped until it failed and I had to RMA for a new one...need to order some new white vinyl wrap.


The MCP35x2 is now in the top pedestal and I swapped one of the 480 rads for an RX240 to give some space for the pumps with easy access.
The three 480mm and one 240mm rad cool it all very nicely though. Should have pulled off the side covers to show the custom fan stickers I made. rolleyes.gif

Previously used a FC9 for the led's but swapped in a FC8 recently to control the light panel, front/cpu/pump top/misc. led's.

A Step drill bit will do the trick.

Yeah that is the best thing to use but I can not remember the one you will need for this? Maybe someone can help.. What is the max size you need on the step bit to make a pass through hole and use all the bit???

TCO posted it a few pages back. Honestly it's easy enough to just make a hole and test to see if it fits, if not go one step down, test again.
