Or should I get the silverstone ones and mount them to the the rads/fans directly. Or third option, order the "Demci filters" (or something)?

I use one of these Metro ED500 datavac Blower. They work great and I also plan on using the custom 120.2 demciflex filter for my Intake. I think you can mount it on the inside of the grill so it isnt as visible and by using the datavac electric duster you wouldnt need to remove it to clean it.

I'm about to order the SMA8 but have some questions.

First is about routing tube down to the bottom compartment, should I order the case with the midplate having 120.3 cut out and get the tubing that way, or order it solid and cut it?
I saw in the webshop that they have these tings: http://www.caselabs-store.com/bottom-accessory-mount-tubing-management-single-140mm/ How do you mount these things? Do you put them over the 120.3 cut out or somewhere else?

The mid plate has 3 square plates where the 120.3 cut out is. You can remove one plate and replace it with this

The solid is solid and the cut out with cover plate, means you can remove the bottom section for adding a pedestal.

Has any one painted a black CaseLabs case/parts into some other color by them selves? I am about to pain some parts and I was just wondering how well should I clean the surface. I know that these are power coated. My idea was to show some sand paper to the surface, leave the black powder coat there and head on with primer. Is there any risk that the paint will react to the power coat? I intend to use acryl based paint. Any tips are more than welcome!

Typically when painting anything you want to take it down to the bare surface. Better adhesion of the paint.

I know that it would be the optimal case. But I am asking is some one has cut the corners and succeeded with it. But if I clean the surface what would be the best and easiest way to clean the power coated surface?

Is this compatible with the S3 + pedestal for routing tubing from the pedestal?

EDIT: Nvmd I just saw the reviewer comment on the page haha.

If you couldn't tell the anticipation is killing me biggrin.gif.

Yes, I can tell the anticipation was killing you. It was the same for me until I received the case two ago.

Thanks, Guess I'll order with 120.3 cut out then =) Also, the one you linked doesn't list the SMA8 among cases that's compatible?
Does the cover for the fan holes come included?
