Will the CaseLabs TX10-V/TX10-D take 2x MO-RA3 420 + 2/3 PSU's without pedestals?

I am kind of looking for a new case, the 900D and such is not wanted (too poor quality), the Mountain Mods Ascension/Extended Ascension is not big enough for the task in mind. CaseLabs TH10 is not big enough either, because of the dimensions. Next step is homemade desk.

I don't see how unless he goes for an extended top. I suppose he can always mount the PSUs in the motherboard compartment using accessory mounts.

So, in other words I have to mod the TX10 to do so? I guess it is out of the question adding more radiators to the original box then ... hmmm .... I think I have to start working on something in a construction program ... luckily for me I just got an introduction to AutoCad Robot Structural Analysis Professional smile.gif

I am now a proud owner of a CaseLabs SMA8! I just placed the order not more than an hour ago.

Your Order Contains:

1 x MAGNUM SMA8
(Case Color: Black 3-5 business days for processing, Form Factor: ATX, ATX Layout: Reverse, Bottom Chassis Section: Cut-out with cover plate, Chassis mid-plate: 120.3 fan holes, Motherboard Side Door: XXL Window CLEAR ($30.00), Top Cover: Ventilated, Lower Chamber Covers: Ventilated, PCI Backplate: Hex Mesh, Flex-Bay Covers: Ventilated ($10.00), Power and Reset Switch: Standard Power/Reset Switches with Sleeved Cables ).


I live in Nevada so I expect it'll be here quickly when they finish processing and putting the order together. I'm excited, I've had a Lian Li V2000B for the past... well I ordered it in 2003 and never used it until 2007 but it sat there in my room next to my old crappy computer, waiting... But now I'm not impressed with the quality, the sliding component that locks the side panel in place vibrates sometimes, and it's annoying if you have your PC in your room.


Well I'm looking forward to this, when I get it my next thing is to figure out whether to get the PSU or radiators first, and what size. I'm planning a dual loop system with one loop and a large radiator for the CPU and either a dual radiator setup for the other loop depending on whether I have two or one videocard.

I will be getting a 5960x CPU because I haven't built a top of the line PC since probably 2002 or 2003, the one I built in 2007/08 was more of a 'budget top of the line' AMD setup. This time I am going to build something that I'll enjoy dealing with NMR/gas chromatography and other fun stuff like that, working with large RAW images including stitching 360degree panos together, and occasional gaming if a good FPS/3PS comes out. I also want to get into video editing, and working with 3d physics simulation programs (as I'm actually majoring in biochemistry and molecular engineering I plan to use it for simulations of chemical reactions as well). It'll be a fun build that will be far more useful than what I'm currently on, which seemed to hit a wall when I upgraded my monitor from 1680x1280 to a 2560x1440 monitor, I only have a 5850 in this PC, and that can't handle the higher resolution, though I was thinking a 295x2 would be cheaper overall than two 290's.

I'll keep you all updated and informed, I'm going to get most of the case/watercooling components over the next 3 months, sometime in January I 'll purchase the hardware, though I may purchase the CPU early, depends on if the price shifts up or down. I expect RAM and mobos might go down a little though, or at least more models will be released by January.

As far as I can see, yes. Why are you going for 2 Mo.Ra rads though? If I had the choice between a Mo.Ra or 2 560mm rads then I would go the latter choice anytime- especially since I could also put in PSUs in between these rads depending on the rad thickness and fan configuration.

It is not really a mod just get the extended top like geggeg said. Get the 150 mm extended top and you can put a mora and 2 ea 420 in the top and 4 psu's and put a mora in the bottom!! Not sure if agree with you on the 560's as the mora has more surface area..
post #9048 of 22275
How so? 2x 560s fit in just fine in the same place where a single Mo.Ra 9.140 does while still allowing for PSUs as well.

yes you could side mount the 560's and have 4 PSU's up top but in doing this I am not sure if you will be able to put a full size drive in the top.. enough places to mount them so it dont really matter I guess.

but you do have more surface area on the mora 140.9 than 2 560's.

area is length X width so

Mora 420 X 420 = 176400

2 560's 280 X 560 = 156800

I do agree 2 Mora's are over kill but most of what we do is overkill anyway!! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

I do not say it is best 2 use the Mora's but it is very possible with a 150mm extended top... Actually it is better than 4 560's as there is more surface area! IMHO...

All fun and games... just you can make the TX10-d or V what ever you want!

Haha yes of course. I am with you there- get an extended top and go overkill either way biggrin.gif
