S8 Case showed up on Monday 4 weeks after order and I must say I am happy. I have found only one minor defect on the door. I will attach pictures as soon as I get home. Other than that I am giddy as a kid on Christmas night to start this build. Time to start planning out all the water cooling parts and the big decision of whether to go with hard pipe or soft tubing for this build.

CPU and GPU Cooler
Dual Custom Loops
Motherboard
Asus MAXIMUS VIII HERO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Memory
Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
Storage
Samsung 950 PRO 512GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive
Video Card

Colin, it only took 1 week, from order to arrival, for my SM8 pedestal...

Parts and pedestals ship really quick, maybe I should order an S8, all in parts, just so I can get it quicker!

It may cost $1,000,000.00 though lachen.gif

The reason I didn't pick the S3 is that it's discontinued now (jan 4th). And with S5 I can add pedestal later if I would need more drives, though I doubt it, but still it's nice to know I have the possibility.

Is it possible to add pedestals for the X2M?

Edit Would it be possible to mount these in the front of an S5?

no pedestal for X2M,
also s3 accessories will be available for one year after discontinued, why not just purchase it right away and then dont assemble and put it away in the closet.

yes they will fit,
why not these?

Thank you for your help =)
I'll consider it =)

The one I linked where the only one I could fins in the Swedish store, but that one seems better =)
That'll leave me with 15 HDDs in the front, this aint gonna be cheap =D

The hot swap HDD cage I like the look of is the Kingwin KF-4002. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued and replaced with an uglier (to me) version ... KF-4001.

They are both only 4 bays but they do have the ability to mount your own 120mm fan!

Note that I don't use a hot swap cage so my view should be discounted.

Nice finds on the Icy Dock 3.5" options guys!

I have a 2x2.5+1x3.5 in the front of my S8 + Ped for my SSDs and slow disc. I think I'll order one of these 3.5" bays for my new server Pegasus later today. Looks like it's light years ahead of the bay hard drive coolers of 5 years ago biggrin.gif

I really like that you can have a 120mm fan instead of the 80mm one.
But it says something about Raid that I don't understand? And also only max 4TB hdd compatible?

I don't really see in what situation a hot swap bay could be of use to the average consumer. I mean I can see the application in a data center, or maybe for a heavy duty work station, but why not use a crossover cable, or just shoot the files over the web?

Isn't the RAID comment saying that if you want to put the HDDs into a RAID format, you need a raid controller (or software). I read that to say that the HDD cage doesn't automatically supply raid functions.

The 'Support for up to 4TB HDD' comment doesn't seem right. If you delete the 'TB' part then I would agree - you can only put up to 4 HDDs in it.
