holy no clearance batman

that's what I was afraid of

but the 140's just look so much more complete frown.gif

enough still for a fan right? based off the caselabs picture

I think I might concede with a shorter front to get the 140's on the bottom, as long as the front can still look uniform

You can always cheat tongue.gif. Do a 420 but install a fan only on the right-most mount. The fans install outside the rad bracket so that should leave you plenty of space inward to mount a front rad. Though you will have some conflicting air flow/paths.

You can run the 480 all the way to the top, I put mine like this and have two slots for a fan controller and a Blu-ray Burner biggrin.gif

I guess I'll see in person on Tuesday when it gets here

does CaseLabs keep the reservoir/flexbay mounts and such in stock or are those made to order as well? with the case arriving Tuesday, I won't be sure on what I need until then, so I guess getting this build done over next weekend isn't going to happen

My New Build biggrin.gif

He's got an SMA8 incoming which is part of the same family as STH10 and SMH10. The bottom section is similar for all three. The mid section has eight slots though with a bit more room on top to run a rad (vs the SM10) and its the same overall dimension for all three. The STH10 has a top chamber slightly smaller then the bottom one, which is the biggest difference among the three. They're all part of the "Magnum Single Wide" series. Looks like you have a Merlin ST10? Looking good so far and still loving those R4s thumb.gif.

Hmmm, mine arrived the next day. Not sure why your is gonna need extra time. Newegg and Amazon (NV or SoCal warehouse) usually arrived the next day. Even my accessories from CL arrived the next business day. Maybe the holiday pushed it back. Though, i know how hard it is to wait for something so crucial, especially during a much needed weekend to plan/build. Well, good things come to those that wait as the saying goes smile.gif


I'm not 100% sure if they stock up on all accessories. Most likely the ones that sell the most and in black (effective production to anticipate demand). As I mentioned, my accessories shipped quickly, but it did take a couple of business days to get ready for shipping. Best to have the CL rep check that for you in a bit thumb.gif.

I'm in Texas though, so shipping time seems reasonable to me. maybe a little longer than usual (given the weekend), but for how big/heavy this package will be, seems reasonable to me

I love the R4s even though many frown upon them. I like how low you can drop their voltage very low and the smoked blade/housing make the led's look better and not tacky imho.

Ah, gotcha thumb.gif


What do you have planned for your loop? Or log? I tapped my Alphacool rads to M4 since I find the M3 stock setup to anemic and small tongue.gif.

man I wish they weren't metric threads at all and just 6-32 like everything else (well realistically I wish the standard system would just go away and we could all go the more sensible metric scale, but...yeah)

I'm planning a 480 UT60 on top, probably 480 UT60 on bottom because of above posts, then whatever thickness I feel would fit best for the front, then see how much space I have left after the Corsair AX1500i (I'm guessing 240) for the other side of the bottom compartment. Then maybe run a 360 at the midplate (got the 120x3 midplate), not sure why people aren't running one here. I'll have two leftover 360 UT60's from the old case/build.

already have dual d5's from the Koolance 452x2 and an EK pump/tube res on the way to swap the pumps over too

probably going to mess with rigid acrylic tubing for the mobo area and regular for the rest. I have to build stainless steel flow systems at work and I hate the tedium of measuring, measuring, measuring, measuring again, then cutting, then measuring, then bending, etc etc. I only got the regular window size, so the rest of the tubing can be hidden and not a headache to deal with like the rigid

The problem with 6-32 screws for radiators is that the have to be custom made to 30mm in length. Otherwise, 1-1/4" is a tad too long and will puncture your rad. I lost a brand new RX480 using these (mad.gif). I should have researched it properly. You can use spacers/washers to reduce the size. 1-3/16" is a bit smaller then 30mm but these are not as abundant and may cost more. Though the slightly shorter threads may become an issue when using fans with gaskets or bumpers as well as attaching to a bracket or your case. I know XSPC does do 30mm (confirmed this with them). So its the usual imperial vs metric issue/situation.


I've seen a few builds using both tube setups. The plastic is usually out of sight.
