The truth of the matter is that 140mm fans have not been the defacto standard for enthusiast level builds, mainly because radiators have long been only available in 120mm spec. There haven't been many radiators in the past that accepted 140mm fans. Years ago cases came with 80 and 92mm fan spots in the rear. That's all but gone now. Companies have moved to 120mm as the standard. There wasn't even an industry standard for mounting 200mm fans up until about a year ago, and I suspect there still isn't, but companies are starting to make their 200mm fans with similar mounting now.

The push to 140mm has literally only been within the last few months. So all of the cases previously released didn't have that as an option. Seeing as that it's now something people are demanding more of, that's what we'll try to provide for in the future. As more radiators are produced with 140mm, you'll see more companies move to accommodate that.

I've known Jason for some time now and know that he would never denigrate someone's build, nor would I ever tolerate that. I really don't believe his intent was to offend anyone, so I'm sorry if that was the case.

The reality is we've supported 140.x radiators from the beginning. The original double-wide cases had integrated 120.x mounts to help keep the cost down and the PSU compartment was too narrow for 140's, but the pedestals had 140.x mounts from the beginning and so has every case since then.

The truth is 140.x radiators have only recently started to become more widely used. I say that based on the radiator mounts/case configurations we sell. 120's still outsell 140's by a large margin (about 5:1), so 140's still have s quite a ways to go. We will continue to support them any any new formats that appear promising in the future. Thanks smile.gif

Okay, I guess I misunderstood what XNine had written. No hard feelings then.

I suppose I have two choices now - either get the 140mm to 120mm fan adapters and mount the 140mm radiator to one of the cases - either M10, TH10A, SMH10, or STH10, OR can you guys drill a couple of holes on the regular 120mm panel on those cases so that I can mount the 140mm radiator?

So I guess I will narrow down the choices to SMH10, TH10A, or the M10.

Hmm...

A couple of questions:
How many 140mm rads and what size (total per rad) do you plan on having, not just now but let's say within the next 3 years?
What would you prefer layout wise, double or single wide?
How many power supplies do you see yourself using now or in the future?
What kind of room do you have for a case (on or off of a desk)?

I think knowing some of the larger, space taking hardware you plan on using is the first step to finding a solution that will work, not just for now, But for future builds in the same case. The biggest thing you want to avoid is not being happy with what you buy. Having to compromise almost always ends up in disappointment (I've been there a few times myself), so let's try and figure out what will work.

Additionally, do you plan on using things like fan controllers, HDDs, optical drives? This would help us narrow down the options.

Cool.....but, temptation could be around the corner...just saying tongue.gif







Would like to see a full blown, and dedicated design bench case from CL thinking.gif.

Heh, you never know..

I have $500 worth of water cooling parts in my cart on PPCs. Seems like a lot for one CPU, one GPU, one radiator.

Don't know if I can justify the expense with my current hardware. I'm going to see what happens with soon to be released new hardware before I commit to anything. But one things for sure, the case stays!

@CL - Love the cases but if you ever come out with something smaller than a S3, like a true SFF, I would be ALL over it. smile.gif

I think a lot of people would.

^ What do you have in the cart? They got a memorial day discount going on till May 30 as I am sure you know and I am trying to think of what I would need for my build(s).
post #7236 of 22179
Everything needed for a small loop. 2 blocks, rad, fittings, pump, res, tubing.

What happened to all your old stuff?

Thanks for reminding me, I need to pickup a new rad. Too bad they don't have any Nickel/Plexi Supremacy in stock.

Jabtech still has a 360mm Swiftech Rad/res combo unit going for $30. I was contemplating getting a Swiftech MCR-XP 480mm rad that was on sale for $26 but someone bought it while I was still thinking about it.

Considering my EK R9 290X block + backplate + single bridge cost me around $170 (that's only 1 block), I can see it getting to $500 easily with all new parts. I'm not the type to buy all new parts though as about 1/2 of my watercooling parts are used.
