I guess lol. When all is said and done, I should have three 120.3 rads and one 120.2 in my S5 build rolleyes.gif

With or without the pedestal?

With, of course. Sometime around August, I'll grab the pedestal and two EK XTX 360s. Hopefully, CL still has Gunmetal as a color option.

Yea so I'm basically doing the same thing except I can only fit 240's in my pedestal instead of 360's. I think I'll be ok with 720mm of rad space for a CPU and single GPU loop though thumb.gif.

Hell I'm about to test my 3570K @ 4.7GHz and overclocked 280x on a single 240mm, especially since I can't find a matching radiator for sale (without paying 50% more than it's listing price at my preferred retailers)

One thing I noticed with the S3, you pretty much gotta trim your cables on the power supply because most PSU's come with 18"+ cables these days to appeal to most buyers. Mine are all cut around 12". It was a lot of work but man does it look better!

It's a cheap imitation of @B NEGATIVE's loom but from where I sit it looks divine.

Actually after a test fit of my front radiator and reservoir/pump combo, it would be ideal if my cables were another inch or two shorter, it makes me sick to my stomach thinking about trimming them all again, so I will see if I can avoid it with some conveniently located tie downs. Otherwise in a month or two when I have spare time I will trim them again.


Honestly that's the thing I'm looking forward to the least (dealing with my PSU cables). Especially since my PSU isn't fully modular. I'm not even 100% convinced I'm going to sleeve them.

I'm actually quite interested in what your temps will be on on that single 240. Let me know!

Who are your preferred retailers? Are there other good ones other than PPCs and FCPU?


Before I place my order for the S3 and pedestal I'm trying to map things out in my head. If I go standard windowed panels and top window panel, am I going to have exhaust issues with just a single 140mm fan in the rear?

I got mine with both side panels being windowed with ventilation. Right now I'm running on air and my temps are better with the panels off. Even with 4x 120mm low RPM intakes and single 140mm mid-RPM exhaust. If you have rad(s) in that compartment, get as many vents as possible IMO. Obviously just my opinion, but I actually enjoy the look of their vent pattern. I might even put some dim lighting in the lower portion of my case to throw a little light on the HDDs and have it peek out of the vent a little.

Yea I like the look of the vents below the the windows as well. I'm just concerned about not having any vents up top. That's really my debate right now. I want the window but I want good temps!

The 2 rads in the pedestal are basically a non factor in terms of airflow up top so if I have a front intake rad I just don't know where the air is gonna go! Wish they had a half window/half vent top panel biggrin.gif.

Get the vented top panel with drop-in rad mount but take the rad mount out. You can see right through and the air gets out. I run it like that sometimes.

Do you mean this mount?




I'm not sure how it helps what kind of drop in mount I get if I still have a ventilated top panel on top of it.
