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...

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.

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.


Thanks for the feedback,

I'd definitely go with the half window side panels, and I have to go with the S8 over a smaller size, since it's an EATX mobo.

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'd like to see that case with the bottom pedestal. I have yet to see a photo of one with the lower pedestal.

Really for the SMA8 you don't really need the pedestal (case is rather large), just like my M8 I would be fine w/ just the extended top I have.  But due to my wanting to add more drives (looking into 4 more 2TB drives to run RAID5/10 w/ my current 2 2TB's - want to run my own cloud off my M8) I don't see my removing my Pedestal anytime soon.

Which top you have - 39 or 120mm. What do you have up top in it? I am debating between the 2. I like the 120 that way I can put the radiator and fans (push/pull) up top and out of the main bay. That most likely will be the direction I go, but still trying to research this stuff.

Thanks

It's the 120, all I have up there is a set of fans.  I 2 of my 360 rads in the pedestal since I haven't felt the urge to install one of the other 2 I have sitting stored.

Here is my current CaseLabs Nova X2M NAS build ...
____________________________________________________________

Build Summary ... All Done ... sans new fan cables
____________________________________________________________

Here is the NAS ... sitting on its own special perspex (acrylic) to keep the dust down ... with its own UPS. This motherboard has 3 network ports and I will be using all three of them. I only have two in play at the moment as I ran out of Ethernet cable frown.gif.

I think this looks pretty good. More information (and fun) in the Build Log.

NAS-0124s.jpg

Inside of the NAS. This isn't how it looks now ... I've fiddled around with the cable management a little bit more, swapped the power cable over for a flat version and moved the fan controller.

Speaking of the fan controller - you can see it attached to the inner front panel and facing forward.

NAS-0106s.jpg

Rear shot of the Fan controller mount ... had to drill new holes in the case and used some small M3 screws / nuts.

NAS-0103s.jpg

And the front shot. Not too happy with this as a) it isn't level and b) there is a gap at the bottom. That said, you can't see it when the outer shell is on and it does control the speed of the fans.

In the end, I moved it (see below).

NAS-0105s.jpg

HDD cage cabling ... the build log has a bunch more information about this process including a DIY connector holder.

NAS-0121s.jpg

And finally, the current fan controller mount ... below the HDD cages, facing the side and angled just enough so that I can get to the knobs if I need to (Note: Need to remove the side panel to actually get to the knobs).

I was toying with the idea of the extended 120mm top but IMO it does not quite suit the look of the SMA8 as it then looks similar to the STH10 which I'm not huge fan of in regards to its looks.

I think I prefer to keep the main windowed section up as high as possible without having any 'Top Hat' extensions which is why I was considering going the pedestal route.

Hi all,

a question regarding the S3 pedestal mounting bracket for the rad and Alphacool Rads. Just started to mount those and recongnised that the bracket collides with the rad caps. So there is a gap between the bracket and the rad.

Any ideas how solve it the best way? Should I go for shroud? Does any one ´know a 280 mm rad shroud to seal the gap?

There are pics much earlier in the thread of people with this issue - they just made a cutout around the caps on the back of the mount without causing any problems.
