It does fit in the side of the S8 but it needs a little tilt to get into position.

D.

Thanks. I think I'm probably also going to follow your lead and paint the acrylic black to match the rest. The look you achieved is very consistent that way. I'm pretty certain I got tap drills for both of those, so that shouldn't be an issue.

Also, I did just post one more pic on the build log with all the fittings now that I've received. Madness.

I'll hopefully get some more posts up now that I have everything I need (of course, I've said that before).

Cheers, and thanks again.

Oooh, excited!

So the MAC-459 is a bit taller than the MAC-460 to accommodate the 140mm option, but some finagling (sans hammer) allows installation in the S8.

Appreciate out-of-box thinking.

Here are a couple shots of the progress I have made in my second build at my second office. Today was the first day that I was there at all since my surgery a month ago. Anyhow, I figured I would get a couple shots with my phone as I didn't feel like breaking out my real camera.






I took a couple of shots trying to show the reflection on the back plates. iPhone just doesn't do it justice.

Anyhow, I have a lot of work to do, but at least I have a nice starting point.

There's no reason to be concerned about laser engraving the acrylic, the metal, though, I'm not sure. Not sure if it would scorch the surrounding powder coating out not. Typically metal is engraved prior to any kind of painting process.

Wow. Quad TX. I think that's the first I've ever seen that. Well done friend!

Yeah so I engraved a bit today. It was the piece that covers the hole at the bottom of the S5 (sorry, forgot part name lol), and it came out great. No scorching, no imperfections with the powerboat, nothing. No worries. I'll try and get some pictures up later.

Close, quad 980ti. Reference models get the Titan waterblocks and backplates (which at the time of purchase were cheaper than 980ti custom blocks).

It seems like there is so much space but once I put in the wiring, tubing, and rads, it seems that there is not a whole lot left.

Nice. But what is with the distortion (watch the right, front side of the S8 around the 0:43 mark). Is that my screen, your camera, something else?
