if you choose a reverse atx orientation, you will have clearance to put a 60mm thick rad up top for the smh10. if you choose the 39' top cover, you could easily run push and pull.

So are the top covers just open, snap on to the top of the case? So, if you mounted your radiator on top of the case, two 360's, with fans either on top, bottom or both, the extended top just snaps over the top of the radiators?

Light bulb just lit up, if the top does snap on top of it, a drain port on a radiator for filling or draining (harder cause thats the highest point) would be a nice option, maybe a 240 or 360 at a lower point in the case would be another option.

Bulb went dim again, another 60 bucks pushes it in the 500 range and you might as well go the T10 or TH10 route...

So, if you want to save a buck and want to mount two 360's in the top, loose two bays, M8 is the way to go. If you want 10 bays and probably having to extend the top, M10 is the way to go or move up to T10 or TH10.

Anyone find they needed the special mounts for the Aquaero 6 that case labs supplies or did it mount with no issues?

The mounts are very nice and they do help with mounting the Aquaero because they are not uniform. I have 2 and 1 I had to use this with and the other one I was able to mount with a regular mount.

The top cover, like all the covers, are easily removable. they just push out from their retaining clips. Tops typically come standard with no clearance for fans, albeit you can clear screws w/ tall heads. They do offer option tops that will extend the top. Enough to fit a thick rad w/ push pull so that free's up the main chamber.

Looking at the tops, they're more expensive after the purchase than during the purchase. Looking to pull the trigger, started to pull the trigger on the M8 for the clearance as I don't need the bays but the M10 would be more bays and just add the extension now to save money from doing it later...

No clue what that is...

Surfing around to see how extended tops work on these case, if you did an 85mm or 120mm, stuck the radiator up there, enough room I'm assuming to run hoses?

Mercury S8:

Depends on your rad thickness and fans. Radiators range from ~30mm up to 86mm. Most 120mm fans are 25mm thick.

Ie: alphacool UT60 is 60mm + two sets of fans for push/pull adds another 50mm (25mm + 25mm), so your total thickness is 110mm (not counting screw heads btw).

What do you plan to watercool?
