Hmmm thanks for the tip - hopefully if things work out I may be able to put it down in the second 5.25 bay and avoid most of the mess altogether but thanks for pointing that out.

You couldn't happen to take a picture of that close up could ya? Might help me as well as others in the pre-planning stage smile.gif (don't think I have seen a good close up of that spot in any threads yet.)

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3msg7Brr_PM"]shoggy sandwich[/ame] it basically is a sound dampening setup to reduce or remove pump noise altogether. Linked ya a youtubeof it. They sell the kit at sidewinders I think. But I plan on making a homemade version.

Masking tape/blue tape them and then cut them with the dremel. I have a feeling I need to shorten mine so the radiators ports aren't blocked. Funny thing is that my FC6 doesn't line up with the front face of the case so some extra holes might need to be drilled.

Do you need the shoggy sandwich? Wouldn't the UN bracket be enough? It has some built in dampening which on another bracket was good enough to quiet my D5 on 5. Idk know about the 350s though. I'm planning on getting one to mount my dual 355s.

You are correct the brackets do have sound dampening built int and they MIGHT be enough. I plan on testing it out- but I already have an old mouse pad that I can cutup and a dollar for a new sponge isn't too much money smile.gif

But do I need it? Probably not - but I also didn't need a $500 dollar case or 3 RX360's either. The sandwich isn't a done deal just an idea and if I run into space issues or find the noise level to be just fine without then Ima go that route!

No real pics yet....most of my watercooling stuff will be in tuesday. And my helix res should be in shortly after. Really depends on what components you have. I have 2 Scythe Kaze Pro fan controllers I can use and they are about half the size of a dvd drive, but rad+fan = 88mm of space. My problem right now is figuring out a good spot for the cylinder res and still have room for the 2 controllers and 1 dvd drive.

I think that is one of the weaknesses of this case is the disk drive setups with certain other components (like a fancy cylinder res). The top spot is almost not usable if you have a thick rad (like a RX360). Good thing about this case is that even with that, you still have other options available without major modifications.

My original plan on trying to get everything inside the case without having to order the top extension. I'll see what I can do when the rest of the stuff comes in.

That is my attempt as well- to get this done without the top extension and still doing 3 radiators...

I am planning on using a single Sunbeam Rheosmart 6 as I believe that should be able to handle all 15 fans with no problem... the dimensions are 148mm x 42 mm x 82mm so looks like it would cut it close if I am forced to place it in the uppermost bay!

Again if things work out well enough though I may be able to move it down a bay or two without any major issues.

That is true about the drive bays and hard drive mounts - at first I didn't notice this issue until after I started my lil MS Paint drawing - thankfully it still leaves room and mounting positions for various options that still keep it clean and fairly ideal for setups - I mean comparing it to an 800D or some other single full tower cases - this provides a lot more room to work around stuff - or so it seems applaud.gif

Just remember, with the majority of cases (like 800D), the drive bays are already there. They aren't free mounted like Case labs or MM are. You can take about 1/2" off the drives because they are pushed forward that much (you'll see what I mean when you get the case).

I'll find a way. Setups are either done with pinpoint accuracy (with CAD) or by hands on (usually the case when I'm not the designer) fitting.

Here are a couple pics of my plan for the MB side hardware mount-wise:
ForsakenM8013.jpg

ForsakenM8012.jpg
ForsakenM82002.jpg
ForsakenM8017.jpg
I'm just using old stuff to mock it up as I'm using what will go in it for now. It lines up with the window. I basically want that front drive area blocked off to not see it for now with the HDs and SSDs to be in a push/pull config. Why push/pull on drives? Cause. That's why. tongue.gif

Once I get all the ideas sorted, I'll make a build log. smile.gif

Eh, nobody NEEDS a Shoggy sandwhich, but they do take the sound/vibration down quite a bit.
