I have 4 passthroughs going down to the basement in my SMA8 all using soft tubing and it is still messy, I can't even imagine dealing with 10 passthroughs lol. For my new loop, I was thinking about doing hard tube in the basement since I will only have 2 passthroughs going to the bottom, but in your case hard tube might be challenge in the basement.

I have two hard fittings left over, so that means that I'll use just one run. But I feel like hard tubing would be easier because it's smaller tubing lol. The soft tubing I feel like just takes up too much space.

The only problem with hard tubing in the basement is going to be all the adapters and extensions you might have to use (which will add alot of cost) due to the tight space down there.

Hard tubing doesnt move. Soft tubing allows things to be moved in the bottom bay according to what is going on down there.

Quick Question: at the bottom of SM8 Pedestals is their fan holes at the bottom like main case to install accessory mounts?
post #20136 of 22417
Well my SM8 has arrived

it was flat packed so i need to assemble but my initial thoughts from looking at the panels are its a wide beast

I do like the paint finish and the feel of the aluminium

hope to have it assembled within the hour

AFAIK none of the CaseLabs pedestal "bottom covers" have fan holes cut in them.
They are a thick solid panel that screw in from underneath.
Most if not all modes, have 2 small holes in the center, assumedly for fitting a drain port or perhaps cable/tubing pass-throughs.
A look these pics from @BazG's SHOCKWAVE S8 build should give you an idea - pics from S8 though not SM8.





The removable plate is handy for final tubing installation, so mounting hardware directly to it may not be advisable.
Maybe consider some "bridging plates" going across the bottom cover to attach the hardware on.
A 120mm Double - Bottom Accessory Mounts is likely your nest bet to go across the SM8 pedestal.

^ Ok Thanks.




1. Anyone know how I could create the above cut-out shape? Like a certain drill bit or tool?
2. Anyone know the drill bit size used to create a passthrough? I'm using EK Passthrough fitting, It would need to fit that size.

It says on EK's website that the diameter of the passthrough is 25mm, So I would get a step bit that can up to 25mm.

Edit: apparently you can drill a hole that is 20mm in size.

"The Pass Through can be installed in a 20mm diameter hole and probably the most common way of using it is when you are building a multi-chambered PC"

https://www.ekwb.com/blog/angled-fittings-and-special-connectors-guide/

but the most important question remains.... which tool to use to make those holes?


personally I'll probably use a Step Bit to make 3 or 4 holes side by side, and then use the Dremel to flatten out any excess pointy areas, and to finish it off with those big grommet

something like this http://www.performance-pcs.com/corsair-rubber-grommets-for-obsidian-series-700-800d.html
