I've really had to bite my tongue lately on other forums and social networks because of people who make derogatory comments on other people's builds. There's always room for constructive criticism, and people in this club do a really good job at making their comments civil, so it's appreciated that you all treat each other with respect.

Sorry, just aggravates me, especially when the offender has never done a build log to show off what they can do (probably because they aren't capable of making a build that's worth anything to be proud of, so they treat others with disrespect.)

XNine,

Good day to you.

I came late to this party so I do not know what has piqued your ire.

Please understand, I agree with you and have left several forums for those reasons. I am a noob here and with many aspects of building rigs. Oh I have lurked for years. I just decided after a few bad experiences elsewhere to take the plunge here.

Please understand as a noob in so many ways I come with my hat in hand when I ask a question. I appreciate the time and thought that goes into a post and response. Please do not get me wrong; I have emailed CaseLabs some really off the wall questions. I shall own one of your fine products when life stops doing bad things to my savings account. rolleyes.gif

Oh, I have seen some intemperate comments posted here. The nature of written communication prohibits the normal feedback mechanisms we as humans have evolved to use. So please allow me to flip the script for a moment. You are a representative of what is in essence a major business impacting numerous people. You, Ma'am or Sir, actually respond here helping people. thumb.gif I've literally read every post on this thread and you always adhere to the higher standard.

Simply stated the odds are you will treat any site that devolves into tacky nonsense by your absence. Your presence here is one of the factors that swayed me from lurking to joining and participating. Please accept my heartfelt thanks for being here and helping.

Try it this way; when I have some noob question about my shiny new CaseLabs case I hope you are still here and whatever provoked your ire won't cause you to withdraw your assistance.

Silly and trite but the English language leaves me few other options; thank you very much for being here and helping a lot of other enthusiasts. Even I've yet to avail myself of your assistance it is actually important to me to know you are here helping sharing your time and knowledge with others.

That was a long way around to say thank you for being here and helping and a an invitation for whomever earned your ire to to preform a biologically improbably act upon those that have earned your ire and frustration. smile.gif

Cheers,

Your post is appreciated. Don't get me wrong, there's lots of great people in this industry, and the people in the CL club are all of equal mind. The ladies and gentlemen here are very patient, kind, and all have enthusiast level expectations of the Hardware that they buy. People here assist others with questions, ideas, and advice.

And you'll never find a dishonest post from anyone from the Lab. I wouldn't work for Jim and Kevin if they weren't honest folk, and they are the most sincere guys on the planet.

Should you have questions, feel Free to post them. Someone here, be it myself, another member from the Lab, or one of the great people in this club will point you in the right direction. smile.gif

I'm not sure if I will use my top 480 as an intake or exhaust, but if I go intake, I will need a filter for it. Is the 39mm top (or even the stock top) on the SMA8 the same as the STH10 in terms of spacing and such for filters? I was just going to order the top Demciflex filter for the STH10 and use it on my SMA8 if I do use intake.

Wow, 6500$, definitely going to top my TH10A.. I only got 5000$ to spend wink.gif by the end of summer I will have 2000$ or so and I'll have around 10 months to save around 3,000 and wait for pascal.. You build will be awesome, also go for the filters, they aren't restrictive and I plan to use them as well!

Well everything just escalated so quickly biggrin.gif I didn't really have a budget when I first build my PC which had a 780. Then later I added a second. But this is all over a year and a half worth, so not all at one time. Then I got into custom loops, and that's when it all went to hell haha.

You really think I'll be fine with all rads as intake? My 560GTS and RX360 in the bottom and RX480 and RX240 in the top compartment as intake? And only one exhaust?

For the top chamber, you'll be fine with all rads intake and the rear fan as exhaust,

After looking @ the SMA8, again, the PSU has to go in the bottom chamber...

I was thinking there would be room there for another exhaust fan, but NOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoO, there isn't...

So there has to be a way to exhaust hot air from lower chamber also...

The best solution is to ask somebody that has an SMA8 like @TheCautiousOne , he'd know ...

Ironically, I'm doing the same thing, I plan to begin the start of this summer and end next year summer, I have majority of the stuff planned tho, definitely going with 5 rads, 2 loops, pedestal, 2-3 GPUs, and the Gigabtye Z170X G1 Gaming is a monster and the most feature packed skylake mobo besides the EVGA Classified

If the fans are intaking air, the PSU can exhaust air? Correct?

People kept saying that the hot air will exhaust up the back and sides of the case in the bottom compartment. Im going to leave off the back PSU cover too. I'm honestly not to sure about that, which is why I kept asking about a fan in the extra PSU slot.

So basically, the hot air from the bottom chamber won't really interfere if I use the top 480 as an exhaust, I'm assuming. That's why I'm not sure if I should leave it exhaust or intake.

i actually meant to say I had a budget for my first build, but wasn't too concerned about it and keep it in a reasonable price range. Watercooling has been my worst enemy in the PC enthusiast world. It's taken my last dollar haha. I really wish I didn't get into it and just dealt with the 780 ACX coolers haha. At the moment, I've spent almost $2700 from FCPU and PPCS just on Watercooling alone.
