post #17531 of 22279
Im a little confused by the options if someone can help me. Im looking at getting an SM8 and was wondering if the Mac-161 fits the front? If so does it just make one large mesh section for the entire opening in front?

edit: looks like it would be mac-162 which is a 3x120

420mm or 360mm is the biggest that case can handle in the front.

The Mac-162 120.3 Flex-Bay rad mount has a full mesh panel which will take up 9 of the SM8's 11 5.25 slots.
this leaves 2 free slots, but with most 360's only one slot will remain free after fitting the rad due to the end tanks and ports.
some rads, but not all can be fitted in the bottom 9 slots with the ports at the bottom at leave 2 usable free slots at the top
OR
with the rad ports at the top, you might be left with the bottom 2 slots usable.

Count on only one free slot for fan controller or whatever, and have a single slot cover (vented or solid) on hand.
if you end up with two, (and wanted 2) it will be a bonus.

Thanks! Trying to figure it out as it seems cheaper to buy the SM8 from microcenter and then buy the upgrades separately due to shipping costs.

How is sound on these cases? Rattling or weird harmonics? Is the aluminum fairly thick? Looking at the SM8.

Here's your answer on that, It is made of 0.090" thick aluminum... Approx. 3/32"

I own an SM8 w/ Pedestal. I very happy, in fact I'm drool.gifwubsmiley.gif with it! biggrin.gif



The case is different than the typical steel case. Once the SM8 is full of components, it's a lot quieter than the empty case is...
