Although it will be not too aesthetical to use C04 upside down.

BE Aware. I did not measure 21 mm between the sr1 and the midplate. I measured 19 mm months ago when I was working on this. So even if you assembled unit (pass through + bitspower smallest 90 degress) give you 21 you will be still short by 2 mm. So you might have to drill the rad/mount to fix it a little lower in order to have 21mm clearance.

Also be aware. The sr-1 use 20 mm fan spacing and the SMA8 bracket is made for 15 mm fan spacing. The sr2 is already fixed with a normal 15 mm fan spacing. So if you go the sr1 route you will need to mod the mount/radiator drill holes.

I didn't buy radiators yet, still choosing between Nemesis GTX 560 and UT60 560. Alphacool is by 4.5 mm narrower on each side, so it will be 23-25 mm for fitting. One more plus to the Alphacool side rolleyes.gif

That is a plus indeed. With more room there it would work I think. But HWlabs are among the widest rads. Got say however, I do wubsmiley.gif the look, constructions, silence, performance and cleanness of the HWlabs...Especially the sr series.

I agree, HWLabs better but wider, and it makes the choice is more difficult

I never thought that with such huge case I will measure millimeters biggrin.gif

Wait, so are you saying that the new cases will be released in december? Should I go for an SMA8 now, or wait for gemini?

No. That's not what I said. I said the earliest you would see a new case line is December. That doesn't mean they'd be available. December, as I stated, is a long shot. If you constantly wait to buy something till you're on the bleeding edge, you'll never buy anything. It could be 10 months out, there's no telling until everything falls into place.

[/@]I'm just stating that it's kind of weird for a company to state that they are haulting the release of something, in this case the nova series, due to reasons of manufacturing. In that case, it's not getting the product finished within the time frame. So if you have a hault of one product, why release or tease of newer items? Either way, I can't wait for my SMA8. biggrin.gif

I actually got the s5 over the s8 because I wanted to show it off on my desk. The s8 is like a coffee table..

Gemini is been on the works for a long time now, even before the Nova series. Also, read carefully what Xnine said. Neither Jim or Kevin were happy and fully satisfied with the other two models on the Nova line. As for the SMA8 I think that is the right decision you are making...Gemini is been on the works for a long time and there is no guarantee when it will make the light of the day. Personally I am excited to see Gemini coming out and a more modern set of features like drop in mounts and so on. thumb.gif
