Things I like, I integrate into following builds with a new twist, things that didn't come off as hoped, sit on a shelf as a reminder of what Not to do, or how not to do it.


Once it gets to be more in the way, than serving a purpose, I give it to someone or a team at work who needs something better than what the company gave them.

You're quite the builder, awesome ! thumb.gif

Well... I'll be looking forward to the build logs once the weather cools down. thumb.gif


I might do one for the S8S, but over the years, I seem to find they just take time away from actually building.

No doubt I have old build logs started that I don't even remember are there.

It's not like a lot of people follow my builds anyway, since I have as great a loathing of black themes and the industrial look as I do for cats.

Is that the case big enough for me to build a computer AND hide in it?

post #19607 of 22513
Having ordered a two tone S5 the other day when the window opened, I wanted to revisit the idea of putting a rad, either 240 or 360 in the drives compartment to allow for windows in the top and front.

I searched for build logs with rads in the drive area, but came up with zip . .

Anyway, thanks to the pics in the tech gallery on Caselabs, some really good dimensions for the S5 are easy to work from.

It really seemed that there might well be a rad with truly minimal width additional to the 120 mm core, and with a minimalist bracket, that having a rad in the drive compartment should be doable . . .


So I looked at rad specs, and the Alphacools are really narrow, the UT60 spec'd at 126mm, and the XSPC rad brackets spec at 130mm, which should then have 5mm clearance.

I measured the XT45 360 I had handy, and it was 124mm so I thought it was worth checking out and ordered some of the XSPC brackets.

Turns out that this should actually work, . . .just surprised that I haven't seen it done . . .

Your thoughts please . . am I missing something . .

Sorry if I missed this before Darlene. Yes it can be done. It was my original plan for Grey matter but along the way I figure 1x360 and 1x240 was more than enough for my need and used that space for the pump/drain setup. Now I saw someone which did that either to the S5 or S3 let's see if I can find his post...

I wanted to do exactly this to my S5-D when I got it. Even ordered the S8 side mount to see if it would fit or could be modded... However there is one more measurement you need that they didn't show though - the opening size (taking the lips on both the midchassis and baseplateinto account) is 124mm. There was one build in a S3 early on in this thread with a 240mm rad in place, no build log though. They did it by cutting through and hard-mounting the rad to the inside of the midchassis. That approach might be your better direction, I think you could just barely fit a UT60 + push fans that way.

I did find that that area fit a SFX psu very nicely, however. The rear venting cuts out to match the psu almost exactly wink.gif

Found one in a s3 but I recall another one in a S5 with pics of the two fan holes and rad drills on the mid bottom chamber plate.
