Where is your psu going to be mounted? On one of their psu mount brackets?

Edit: I hope you have better luck with those Bitfenix fans on your rads than I did, they are great case fans, but they didn't do very well with my UT-60s in the 360/480mm flavor

This left me with just enough room to squeeze my AX860 behind it.


The dust....tongue.gif. Tight squeeze and tricky to install the brackets but I managed to squeeze in two 280s w/ enough room for the two V1000s and a bit left for the front 420 barely poking through. There's plenty of room for the fan controller.

What was the issue exactly if you don't mind me asking?

Figure I'll ask in here.

I want to replace my Cooler Master Cosmos 2 case since I'm now using 2 PSUs and want a really good case for it.

I am NOT planning on water-cooling beyond the Kraken X60 I already have - the GPUs etc. will be air-cooled.

The Kraken X60 uses 140mm fans so I would like to know if the top of the Magnum TH10A or SMH10 can fit the 140mm fans?

Hi Baasha,

I will give you my .02 cents here biggrin.gif

If I assume that it's for your X79 quad gpu setup on your signature, here's my suggestion.

TH10A is too big for what you need.
  • I would simply go with an SM8 with the 140mm option on the top.
  • I would add a PSU mounting bar kit for you second PSU and put it horizontally in front bottom,
  • I would add a Flex-Bay HDD Cage with the SSD's adapters so you can put your 8 raid ssd's their and your other ssd could go in it's native place behind the motherboard.

Here are the links to what I talked about. I also did a quick cart and you would save money compared to the TH10A.

Just my opinion here thumb.gif



P.S. : You were talking about the possibility of a revamped STH10 into an STH10A because of the revamped TH10 into TH10A....but these 2 cases aren't in the same family and the improvements they did on the TH10A are already like it on the STH10/SMH10/SMA8 family which are an all screwed case, interchangeable doors, reverse kit possibility, etc... so I would not expect an STH10A based on that.

Oh I'm loving some Mercury S8.

I'm in a pickle fellas. I am loving the s8 case, horizontal motherboards do it for me smile.gif

I can't decide between a dual slot res with d5 vario pump or the dual disc pump setup with a 250 res. I guess the dual disc pump and res would have to me mounted to the floor in the open areas behind the 5.25 bays?

What do you guys or gals think?
post #7109 of 22194
I'm guessing a dual disc pump is a MCP35x2? I like the reservoir and separate pump look myself, or a tube res with integrated pump top. I'm not big on the 5.25" bay ones. But obviously that's my personal opinion.
post #7110 of 22194
I am actually looking at the new EK Dual DDC 3.2 PWM X-TOP w/ Pumps or the EK dual res. The s8 makes it kind of hard to mount a pump and res thats why I am looking at that dual pump with adapter for 250 res as I am sure the 400 is to tall especially wight he push/pull 360's in the top.
