Gosh, I had felt so good about getting my 290X under water cooling, but after looking at some of the cool (no pun intended) WC setups, I feel like the cop waving everyone away saying, "Move on, nothing to see here".redface.gif Regardless, here's a pic of my humble rig....

Just ordered an sm8 last night. Can't wait to setup my kingpins in it. Hopefully it gets here by next friday, but that might be wishful thinking

Don't feel safe anymore so I'm gonna break it down until I get a new case. Getting a nice tax return and sold some of my tools, so I have enough to get a brand new CL. Not going to buy used this time as I had some bad luck recently. I'm sticking with 140mm rads and fans I'm currently using, so I have some questions for those in the know smile.gif.

Qs:

-Anyone know the status of the mythical 140.3 Flex bay rad mount? I've seen the 140.1 and 140.2 but I'm looking forward to the triple.
-STH10, how tight is it to put 140mm fans/rads up there and does the side rad bracket need any mods to make it work? I hear it don't fit but it can be made to fit.
-Seeing a lot of excitement on the S8, I know it supports a couple of 280s on top and one up front w/ the Flex rad mount. Though, does a pedestal support a 140.3 radiator (UT60 p/p)?


Thanks guys! My old TH10 has found a new home so my ride is over with that beast. I'm hoping to keep on w/ the CL family soon. Here's hoping uncle sam hurries up w/ everyone's returns (rolleyes.gif).


sucks to hear you have to spend even more money rofl tongue.gif

regarding the sth10 -

when i first started the build log in my sig(shameless plug) i started with 420mm rads in mind, i ordered one and put it in and it fit fairly easily, no modding needed from me. I ended up not liking the fans i bought and instead of buying new fans that i did like i ended up selling the rad lol. Darn alpenfohns are hard to get here frown.gif Personally id love to see your build in an sth10.

Im excited to see some s8 builds pop up, i personally want one really bad but i have to spend all my money i have atm on ln2 equipment now lol.

If you want wermad, ill be making a video today going through the sth10 for my build log since its apart right now and i have to re do the acrylic runs, toss me a pm or post here and ill add whatever you want into the video so you can see whatever you need to know.

That be awesome! Thanks pal thumb.gif. It looks like i'm committing to an STH10. The current case has so much chassis flex I'm afraid something will break. From what I can calculate, i can fit 140mm rads on top but not w/ the side rad bracket. Just picked up a few more cougar fans for now. Derick warned me this case is huge but I have plenty of space on top of my desk. Though i will need longer dp cables for my 5x1 array. Was thinking of adding the Flex bay 140.3 but after research and studying pics closely, it looks like a 420 rad won't fit w/ the top and bottom chambers occupied. So its gonna be a 140.2 for now. Thinking of putting my current 280 and 420 on top, the second 280 up front, and picking up a couple of 560s for the bottom.

Where you gonna put your psu then? Depending on the length of your psu, the longest rad occupying the psu side of the bay is honestly 240mm. A 280 might fit, but I can tell you that with a 180mm long psu, a 240 is really the longest that will fit. And that's with the rad mount set to give the extra space to the rear, a feature that only the 120mm side mounts have.........
post #4819 of 22477
I mostly went for 120mm fan rads because i have roughly 50 gt ap-15s that id be doing nothing with if i went 140mm lol, if i could have sold the gts i would have spent the money on getting some 140mm alpenfohns to the usa lol.

Youll definitely want longer cables for the sth10 lol, my stock evga 24pin cable barely barely barely reaches, after i get the acrylic all bent and cut up i may order some supplies from lutro and make a longer 24 pin for it lol, it feels like its trying to pull out of the rivebe every chance it gets. On the other side of things, the 8+4pin cpu cable has the longest stretch in the case and still feels way too long lol, someone at evga needs to work on their psu cables imo tongue.gif

the sth10 is a monster, i need a new desk for mine, my desk is old and falling apart anyways lol, but still its not the biggest desk in the world so i definitely want to make my own or try to find a good "L" desk for cheap.

Ill get that video recorded today and try to get it edited by tonight thumb.gif

My lepa (when I get a damn replacement mad.gif) will sit aft of the 280. I have 660mm of space so 180 + ~300mm for the 280 should clear. The 420 will sit next to the psu and 280 in the top chamber. I'm thinking of grabbing some XSPC 140mm rad brackets to hold the top rads. They're cheap and ~150mm tall (psu comes in ~150mm too) may clear. I've already read a few logs where the side bracket has to be modded to make them work on top.


Gonna try to keep the case as clean as possible so I may forgo unnecessary options like top and bottom venting (side will be a must) and 120mm fan holes (Only 120mm fan will be for the rear).

newegg has the 40% off deal again on cougar 140mm fans so picked up more (15 + a 120mm). I've had other monster cases (huge a$$ custom MM and an Ext. Ascension) so I'm no stranger to large cases biggrin.gif.
