I just want to say how thankful I am. Why? Because I was just looking at my case and I remembered how much space I was given with my radiators/fans and pumps mounted. Check that out! I have to remove one of the fans just to fill it.



I may have my build finished by Tuesday. All I have left is cutting the pas throughs, cutting/bending the tubing, and filling her up. That's about it. I will also be sending back one of my 140ER fans due to the recall, and maybe more once I determine if the other three make the sound.

I can't thank CL enough with the build quality of this case. Now it may have taken me a good 5+ hours to put it together, but oh well biggrin.gif once I get it all filled up, I can then stash it away while I study haha jk

Hey everyone. New to overclock.net and love this thread. Proud owner of a SM8 here and need a little guidance. My SM8 will remain basic and I am not looking to overdue things (i.e. Pedestal or 120mm top albeit being cool as hell!). Right now I am running on air while I work on building the loop for water cooling. My question is with my 3 140mm fans installed on the front, I will only be able to fit a slim radiator in the top and a thick radiator on the front. Would it be more desirable or preferable to use 3 120mm fans in front with 2 open drive bays to accommodate for a thicker radiator on the top? Keep in mind I am going for more form over function for the most part.

Hey strangers. wave2.gif Been a long time since I've been in here, but I'm finally back to working on my build and figured I would share a little. Can't wait to finish and get back to gaming!
Sorry all I have is cell pics.

Here's a pic.




I've got some Screw-grab compound coming on Sat. Any other thoughts?

And yes, I'm going to invest in some better screw drivers. Lesson learned on this one.

Welcome to OCN!

I own an SM8 also, I can tell you what I know from my setup:

First of all, are you planning to do a Push / Pull configuration?

If you are, I fit a 120.3 in front and a 120.3 on the top, with 64mm thickness Rads, both in Push / Pull, with enough room to mount a 250 tube reservoir with a D5 pump, mounted on the case divider, behind the front Rad... But, I changed that setup to a 120.2 on top so I could fit a DVD drive in the top...

For the 140mm, you will be able to fit a 140.3 in front and a 140.2 on top...

About the 140.3 on top, NO... Unless you have a 140.2 in front

My recommendation, 120.3 in front and 120.3 on top... or,140.3 in front and 140.2 on top...

You may be able to drill it out by starting with a small drill, and working your way up to a larger drill, this will release pressure so you can turn it out, or just drill it out completely. If you do that though, you may have metal left over in the internal threads that it screws into...

A variable speed drill motor would be the best starting at a low RPM and cranking it up as you go along...

Otherwise, you can always take it downtown lachen.gif

Looking for some help on here. Wanting to build a custom wood case for an experiment. Was looking at buying a CL motherboard tray to use to save me that headache. From experiance what would be the best tray to buy (standoffs and PCIe brackets)?

This would depend on what form factor motherboard you're using...

CaseLabs makes Tech Stations that have what you need...
