does anyone know if you can take an sm8 that is reversed atx and have it put back to not reversed atx style by just moving around the panels (without modding the case)?

Yes, the SM8 is ambidextrous.

Yes it is, without any mods or extra parts...

http://www.caselabs-store.com/content/Merlin%20Assembly%20Manual%20_%20Flat-Packed%20cases.pdf

This shows how to assemble the SM8, in both Standard and Reverse orientation.

I've reversed and and changed back to standard a couple times now...

Standard

I've put my share of Aquaeros in CL cases, and cursed like a drunken sailor every second of the task . . at least the non conforming mounts made it a little less painful.

Besides being too wide . . . If you go to stack them, the faces are too high as well, and I had to take almost half a mm off the top and bottom edges.

Heh yeah you have had more than your share of issues that should not have been the case at all. Did they get back to you with revised mounts at all or did you get them working yourself?

@ wermad, I gave you REP+ for the ebay link, good stuff but I have a question, What size sleeving do people normally use for sleeving led wires (pair of 24 or 26awg wires). Is it 1/8" cause Im sure a smaller size would slide over the
2pin arduino connector Im just not sure which size is the next smallest?
I've used the Bitspower 1/16" sleeve for led wires that have 1/8 watt resistors, so it should slide over a pair of 26 gauge wires easy. This is what I ordered at PPC's:
Bitspower Super Tight Weave Sleeving 1/16" - Gray (BP-CSD116D-GY)

I got the non conforming when I ordered the gunmetal case, and enough extras to retrofit the white one.

I had already solved the problem, but wanted the non conforming all around for consistency between the builds.

The fact that the front panels are too wide when you stack them, was just as big an issue, but having a bench belt sander produced a workable solution.

For all the grief of installing multiple Aquaeros, I still won't use anything else. . . . .

I just accept at this point, that I'll have to sand the front plastic so it's not too long, use a dab of silicon adhesive with a toothpick to reinstall it, generally spend a couple hours apiece . . sanding and tweaking, to put them in and have no worries down the road.


Will be using a 6XT and a slaved 5LT in my Core X9 Snow Edition build, . . . . so it'll be interesting to see how they play out there.

I had issues with the A6XT in several cases, thankfully the non conforming kit was developed by Kevin and thus, made the A6 easy to mount in my S3. It just wouldn't fit properly in any case from any mfg. I never got anything sent to me by Shoggy.

It was a pretty bad oversight by AC, but at least they fixed it and are helping customers out. I really have a lot of respect for their company. They make very robust and high end products. Now if only they'll re-release their old style reservoirs with better spaced and sized ports for fittings, I would be in heaven. Finest reservoirs ever made, IMO.
