Has anyone tapped any of the flex bay attaching holes to m4? Wondering if there is enough material there to tap.

From my experience tapping radiators, going from M3 to M4 is very straight forward as long as you have the tools. But 6-32 is a bit too big and the M4 tap won't grab properly. if you bore it out, it still too big. You may have to step up to a larger diameter. Why are you looking for M4? You should have a ton of 6-32 options in the US.

Wasn't sure if I drilled through with a 3.4mm if I could make it fly. Don't want to end up using nuts though, lol.

??? You can find all types of heads and finishes for both (hex, hex button, p/h, f/h, hex flush, p/h flush, etc.) Most computer "thumbscrews" are 6-32 and there;s a ton of options. Ppcs.com has anodized aluminum ones in different bright colors. Unless you're looking for something exotic (like titanium), you should have similar finishes for the majority of the time. Caselabs uses 6-32 for the majority of the hardware and just a few 10-32 and M3s (mb).


Try Mcmastercarr.com as it has a nice guided feature to browse different types of screws. Check ebay if they have them as I find mcmastercarr can get a bit expensive if you only need a few screws.


I bought some black hex 6-32 1/4" "case screws" on ebay for a few bucks. Very uncommon, since most are the chrome or dull ss finish. When I could, I used these on my CL since I didn't like the standard p/h screws (andI ran out).


Also, 6-32 can be sourced easily at your local big-box hardware stores.
post #18065 of 22476
Oh, I can find 6/32 no problem but there are soooo many more colors in metric. Ppcs has red or blue mostly, and everything local, Fastenal, etc. is black, stainless, or zinc. Ive found many more options in r/c mod shops and motorcycle mod shops using metric.

I really love the white rad/white fins aesthetic, geggeg suggested I drive the rig over to PPCS and compare all three radiator color options for the HWL MP 280 radiator, that is a wonderful idea, since my visualization capabilities reside at the level of zilch. tongue.gif

When I had the Mercury S8 black and white two-tone, would have been an easy choice to pick up the Hardware Labs SR2 MP in the white/w white fins. With this S8S, trying to balance three tones is extremely difficult.

White just pops so well with the gunmetal interior as an accent and brought in the Seasonic Snow Silent white PSU, yet it's hardly visible down below the motherboard. The gunmetal and black also look amazing adjacent to one another. Want to blend all three tones without looking like a random assembly of colors thrown together without any purpose. I'd rather the tone balance reflect some design, style or at least some forward thinking.

How many years until I finish this build? Already using the 6700K/M8E rig daily to get work done, its an absolute joy over the 3770K/M5E that now seems slow and has been reassigned as a parts testing, backup and web browser rig, just need to get the new guts into the case and finish the plumbing in the front room and the basement, and cut a few holes. smile.gif

In this first pic, going with the Hardware Labs Multiport 280 will allow direct access to the left chamber (red arrow) using one front port and one of the HWL MP 280s side ports. The only option with the EK CE 280 is turning it around to face the chassis front and modding/cutting the CaseLabs 280 rad mount and cutting the corner edge of one 140mm fan to run two soft tubes from the front, yea the idea was to not run the tubing in this mid chassis bay area front of the mobo tray and use that space to feature the Aquaero 6 as an LT config internal mount, with the tidiest cable management ever presented (I hope) and some white PSU cables. Adding two long tubing runs laying on the floor of the case I thought would just look cluttered and messy.

Also, all three of my EK rads are peeling paint and cannot rub away all the scratch marks and they've never been wet, all beat up from simple dry fitting, the finish is not so durable and I take my time and great care when fitting parts just simply touching the rads to some of the CaseLabs powder coated case and frame parts have damaged the EK rads, not fair. The CaseLabs powdercoat shows NO signs of scratches or wear, its as beautiful as the first day I assembled.

I had (4) mods to complete with this build, now only (3). When is a mod no longer a mod and only a reconfiguration? When there's no cutting of metal involved, I guess.



Really love the fresh new look the eLoop B14-PS 140mm fans bring to the front panel, before it was a bit boring in all black, that white just pops.



When the four ROG red accents are painted white, this board will look amazing, a gunmetal and white ROG board. (thumbs up emoticon)

I'm single and broke and I don't live near PPCs. Just placed an insane order with them yesterday. I need help.

You may want to call Ppcs before going. Last I checked the white on white have been out of stock for the 360mm size. You could see the other sizes to get the look though I guess.

Edit: Disregard, forgot you were looking for the 280mm.

Were you looking to put two of the MP 280's in the top of the S8, or just one in the flex bays?

If it's just 1 in the flex bays, you're golden, but . . .

You really can't put 2 of them up top, they are ever so slightly too wide in body width, although you could dremel the mounting holes enough if that was the only problem.

Unfortunately, the way HWL has seen fit to have the side port caps extend another 3 mm past the actual side of the rad, that guarantees you'll not get two of the 280s in the top of an S8.

That had been my plan for my S8, but had to go to plan B and use 240's up top instead.

The 280's ended up in my Phobya Aluminum Tech Bench, so at least they got put to good use.

Other 280's from other brands shouldn't have that problem, as most rads are always a few mm narrower than HWL rads of the same size.
