I'd like it like this:



not 100% sure on the front window but I will certainly eventually water cool it, which is why I opted for the radiator mounts, and the front window seems like a nice place to showcase a res, though how I will mount it I don't know (I'd like to avoid unnecessary, extra pump/res mounting accessories entirely). is the right door the side the PSU is on? I don't want an XL window on that side, no need to see the cable mess.

Check out my build log on my S8, not the best or best pictures but I had two different res mounted in it using industrial velco with the front window. I am running air on mine now and ordered the vented front to add more fans vs the front window.

can you order a standalone front cover?

after staring at katie, I have some new ideas :O that res in the bottom is beautiful. I had been to post asking if there would be any problems with mounting that Photon 270/pump combo horizontally

Well thank you! I wouldn't recommend it. It seemed to make weird noises when completely horizontal so thats why I used that ghetto wedge, but still a complete pain in the rear.
If you look a few post back I posted a picture of what I just ordered. Vented front and chassis front for the 120.2 all to replace my front window.

I hope I help

yes, I read through the rest of the thread redface.gif I have also heard a lot about how filling XSPC's Photon reservoirs are a complete pain. maybe I'll just go with one of the EK combos then...still need to decide on radiator locations and window sizes. mainly the front cover and left side. I change my mind all the time and I don't have anything in front of me so I don't know what anything actually looks like.

I wouldnt recommend it, It was a complete pain and I mounted it with a ghetto rigged wedge for the angle. It also seemed to make weird noises horizontally (I think)

Yes you can, I actually just did. A few posts back you can see a screen shot cut out of what I just ordered. Front panel (vented and
I went with standard windows no vents on both side panels, I have a Scythe AP-15 as an exhaust for my HDD in there so it doesnt get toasty.
Yes that thing was a PAIN to fill... The EK I had mounted in the front window was SO easy to fill.
Dont forget a drain valve! thumb.gif

One question to all you caselab owners, not sure if I should throw it up as a seperate thread or not.... How do you feel about DEMCIFlex filters? How do they line up with your ventilation? Would you suggest getting custom fit or just going for one that's made for the case's specs? I want to get some filters for the bottom compartment.

I have an SM8 with a 120.3 front radiator mount and bought a single DEMCIFlex 120.3 filter custom made for the SM8. It fits perfectly. I don't have the build done yet so I can't say how they perform yet.

I bought it from PPC's : for the SM8 http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=36_463_500_514&products_id=37297

There are custom filters sets as well as single filters for many different cases including CaseLabs. thumb.gif
