I have two other CL chassis with pedestals and both of those screw together from the top down.
So this one is the odd one out for me.
I will sort it out so that is how it attaches, but wondering if others had the same issue and how they went about sorting it out.

I have a few ideas, but none I'm really too excited about redface.gif

i did this for the S5





then screwed the top down by the 4 mounting points made disconnecting easy

I see,
Unfortunately my S3 bottom panel only has one hole (which is threaded) in each corner...not all 4 threaded holes for castor mounting like your S5.
This I can only assume is for screwing the rubber case feet up into.
So adding a ped creates the situation I am working through,
which without some mods only leaves the option of screwing upwards from the ped ( I think)

Air cooled thought?

Okay so this might seem silly but I am curious to hear other thoughts. I am looking at the S3 and the pedestal as well as the front fan placements. if you put solid front and back on the pedestal and then 4x 140mm fans, two each side as intake, what kind of positive air flow upward into the S3 could you achieve?

I mean it is an academic exercise but could you get enough positive air flow that just letting it come up through the bottom naturally would be enough our would you put a 140 in the bottom of the S3 to help pull it through?

If we did this I would think you would need to use a solid top and only a single front intake at the top most position to redirect the air toward the back of the case and around. The fans should be able to run at really low speeds since their position would create a virtual jet stream through the main air pressure exit.

Was just looking and this and thinking, hmmm.... thumb.gif

I only screwed it down with the one threaded hole that is in each corner of the ped. The threaded holes for the casters were left alone.

Are those holes on the rear of S3 compatible with EK passthroughs? Would there be enough space with 280mm rad on top to move tubing there?
post #14236 of 22267
By any chance anyone know the color for the black for the case. Looking to paint my outside of case black. And that even though my rads our black allready I want to paint them the matte black shade as well

Any one got an easy solution to fix/attach the S3 chassis to the S3 pedestal from the chassis side questionmark.gif
Mine is set-up to screw together from underneath - pedestal up into the chassis frame, which is just crazy redface.gif

S3 Pedestal
Dual D5s and with EK Dual Pump Top.
AquaComputer Reservoir
Dual 280mm XSPC Rads with NoiseBlockers in Push
Drain for each side - tap on rotary fittings

Wiring to complete and the inlete/outlet tubes + fill port hose

Well this certainly isn't the easiest solution but... You don't need screws! AND you might have the parts already in your baggie of extra parts from Case LabsYour bottom section looks heavy although mine holds tight with the following (S5 Pedestal, 360mm rad, 3x Fan, some tubing) (I use 3 contact points of what's pictured below)

Ummm... methinks it can be screwed together either way. The centre (unthreaded) hole in the chassis' base lines up with the inner (threaded) hole of the three on the top plate of the pedestal. That's how I mounted the S5-D together - I just reused the screws from the case feet, but if they stick down too far & interfere then I'm sure you could get shorter ones. Just FYI you'll likely need a stubby screwdriver!


Quick potato pic:





Edit:

Sorry - just realized while the S3 ped has same hole layout as the S5 ped, I guess the chassis holes are not the same. Could you maybe drill the cooresponding holes to where the threaded mounts in the ped top are and go from there?

Yeah - now you're seeing the issue wink.gif
One of the threaded holes on the ped (1 each corner) is situated under the PSU in the chassis.
I probably didn't help by not having a pic of the chassis holes to compare with the ped's holes, but I guess I was reaching out to other S3/Ped owners.

I have a little while to think it through before I have to make a decision...
but looks like new holes and cut new threads on that side, minor clearance issue at the front of the main chamber side also.
The hard drive side is not a big issue to drill new holes to line up with the peds threads as you mention.

Cheers fella's - input appreciated thumb.gif
