post #15491 of 22189
I setup mine with 360 front intake and rear/480 out and run the fans in the front faster so that I have a positive air pressure. All the dust goes to the front with my double filters and that's what I clean. The inside of my case does not need any cleaning at all. I wanted the 480 to be exhaust also because pushing air downward would cause the fans to work harder since hot air rises.

I don't know what everyone else's reasoning for doing that config though.

What filters did you use. Do you mind snapping a picture as ive been wanting filters but felt it would clash with the looks. Our they demci filters?

It seems like there is a lot of discussion about filters, types, airflow impedance, stuff like that. however.... are they even really needed, especially if I have my rig on a desk and I clean my room regularly?

They are a personal choice and not needed!!

^ this. Regardless if you have filters, the inside will always get dirty. Filters just minimizes it. Personally, i dont see the need for em. I have a datavac which i blow out my computer every other week. A datavac is a better investment than filters imo

So I put my SMA8 together, and I love the build quality. It was definatey worth the $800 biggrin.gif

However, I may have issues with the way I planned on it. Since I already have a 360 radiator, I'm going to use it next to the PSU.
This is the amount of space I have for cables. And Yes, I knew it was going to be a tight fit



My biggest issue is the fact that the 120.4 radiator bracket has to be inserted from the inside. I didn't know that. It's a pain to have to remove the PSU to remove the bracket. I was planning to just pull the bracket out to do maintanance or whatever needed to be done in the bottom compartment. Is there only one way to place the rad bracket?

What a problem to remove PSU, if all cables are modular?

Must be different for different cases becase all my rad mounts can be taken out frome the out side! The only one that is different is the 180*3

All rad mounts for SMA8 are from the inside, a serious PITA. with two rads down there its extremely difficult to get everything setup.

Not everyone has a water distribution plant for a rig either, lol
