That would be my suggestion. I didn't realize that was PETG and Primochill fittings. That makes more sense of why you used the fittings in question.

C47s. That's all.

BPs locking hard-line fittings are even better than C47s. C47s are amazing, so that says something.

If you want to take that route I certainly could help building the reservoir for free (just the materials) although shipping to Australia would be a bummer.

I'm used to exhorbitant shipping costs Gabriel... mad.gif but that's what we have to put up with living DownUnder...! We do have great beaches though..thumb.gif

Anyway thanks for the custom res offer. One thing I wanted to incorporate in my loop was a visual flow meter - More specifically a reliable rotameter design. More so just to be a tad different and as a talking point rather than a neccesity - As it is I will still require an MPS400 for my Aquaero anyway...biggrin.gif

Just measuring and laying things out at the moment:-

Note that I have covered the two large cable openings with the LHS res - this is on purpose as I will be squeezing the cables through the small gap that remains between the mobo tray and the frame. I have also offset the two reservoirs and the rotameter to the left as much as practically possible so that the RHS res is not obscured too much with the door closed.




I only had my SMA8 shipped to me late last week (via local retail supplier) so I assembled the basic frame work to get a handle on my proposed layout. I will be looking at adding a pedestal to the bottom - So the two lower compartments will house 2x 560 rads and my pumps etc.

I will be 'T-ing' the res connections together and in the visible section rather than hiding them - All via 16mm acrylic. I'm not a fan of the look of tube bends and I want to go more for an 'industrial/beefy' look to the tubing/bends so have decided to go with physical right angle fittings.

Something like the black L-Block fittings below but in shiny silver. I'd like to maintain a 'beefy/muscular' look for the fittings which seem to visually suit the BP L-block & 16mm compression combo better than the smaller rounded angle fittings which IMO don't quite suit them.

I found that the fittings I used were very hard to use, but maybe that was because it was first and second time. I used these ones: Bitspower G1/4" Silver Shining Enhance Multi-Link For OD 16MM
http://www.performance-pcs.com/bitspower-g1-4-silver-shining-enhance-multi-link-for-od-16mm.html . I found that I had to sand the edges quite alot, but maybe I was doing it wrong. =P

Sand the edges?! Of? If it's the inside then the running you bought wasn't the right size. The E22 tubing I bought for like a glove.

Sorry, sand the tubing. I bought bitspower 16mm tubing, figured they would together well with their 16mm fittings...

Hey gang,

While there's a little window of white availability, and no one, (except maybe Snef) likes white cases more than me, I'm looking at an S8 to move my daily driver rig into.

I was going to put it in a reverse atx phantom that I modded, but working on my Tt Core X-9 build has me sold on the horizontal mobo layout, especially since the upper PCIe sockets on this older board can be a tad dodgy.

I was planning to go with the side panels with the window upper and vented lower portion, complimented with the window/360 extended top and the little window in the front panel. . . .

Then I got to thinking it might have a more open look if I add a pedestal, and put a pair of 360's there and go with all windowed sides and top panels . . .

Would appreciate all feedback, especially anyone with an S8 and ped setup.

It's a simple CPU and 1 GPU loop, so even a pair of 280's would be enough, which would maybe allow the pumps in the ped as well or use those flex bays and put a 360 rad mount in the S8 bays just for fans

If I put 280's, or a 360 and a 280 in the ped, is there room for an optical drive in the flex bays?.

Why the S8 if its only gonna be a 1 GPU loop?
I totally agree with the more :open: design of all windows and the rads in the pedestal, I think that could look really cool and clean.

However, I really like my half vented/window s5, It gives this really cool, almost secret look to the build where some of the stuff is hidden away but still visible because of the white interior...

Having both the full and 1/2 windows on my S5-D, I personally would go with the 1/2 window either with or without ventilation, plus the full windowed top. I don't really need to see all the PSU wiring or the drives myself - I'd rather showcase the MB area only. If I did an all-white build like that then I'd consider replacing the mb tray with a white acrylic panel covering the full case, and having all wiring & tubing 'disappear' through it with the PSU and pumps hidden below. I'd try to run it with a 280 in the flexbay & a 240 or 360 in the side; no pedestal if I could get away with it. I've even thought of 1 or 2 custom 120mm res made to fit in the fan holes in front of the rad (instead of the front window), perhaps ordering the windowed front panel extra to eliminate the mesh front. Hopefully it would end up a very minimal-looking design...


If I was doing S8 full window all around plus ped then I'd start with a S8S - the extra height of the S8 to me would just be a waste.

Hey Diva,

You might check my Daedalic build for S8 +ped references

I'll try to give a longer response later in the day
