How do you think the accessory mounting plate is held in place though? tongue.gif

3M industrial velcro will hold just about anything but getting the velcro off is not very easy either.

Pre-drilled holes already on the case?

Only in the newer cases where it is a stock option, but in most cases I would rather drill myself and choose the location than be restricted to pre-located choices. Most reservoirs use an M3/M4/6-32 size thread for mounting so a couple of small holes isn't a biggie- especially when the mounts on most reservoirs are flexible in height.

I was hoping I could mount the mounting plate, and have the drilled holes in the mounting plate. If my case were gunmetal grey you wouldn't notice silver drill-holes as much, but since it's solid black drilling is noticeable.

Black sharpie or LET, and no one will know. M4/6-32 holes are very small! Just take your time, measure a hundred times to be sure and drill on.

Well guys, I finally went and took action on my horrible cable management (or lack thereof) and horrible cables themselves.

I cant believe how time consuming it was trying to unplug all the current cables and replug in the nicer ones and organize them to look nice. I had so many minor issues/tedious issues arise that drove me crazy, and in the end the job still didnt really look that good! at least not compared to so many I see nowadays, especially the boutique builders like Singularity or Maingear. I can only imagine the process and patience it must take for their level of cable configurations....

The last thing I want to do is a change in the lighting. The LED tubes im using are decent, but they are too bright and aggressive without any flare or flavor. Im probably going to get a pair of Darkside dimmable UV reactive LEDs, with the RGB controller. Ill hook it to my Aquaero and then ill be able to dim the lights, or change several different colors, and turn them on/off with my Aquaero remote smile.gif

Looks like you have the same issue as I do, its the thinner PSU cables, Are those corsair or evga cables by chance? they are just difficult to make look neat in my opinion.

I use phobya leds & RGB controller, the Darkside dimmable RGB setup looks similar and possibly better

I have a question which is S8 specific but is somewhat general as far as cooling goes.

I'd like to transition my watercooled Silverstone FT02 build to one of the Mercury series cases. I don't envision myself dropping down to an mATX or ITX board, so the S8 is what I've been eyeing up.

Let's say I mounted a triple 120mm radiator in the lower half of the case and had no fans on the top half of the case taking in or blowing out air. What kind of impact could I expect as far as temperatures? The major components are obviously going to have water blocks, but would there be any concerns as far as the general temperature inside the top half of the case with no movement of air?

If it was an issue, I gather the best way to combat it would be to utilize positive pressure and filter off the intake to avoid having dust entering the case.

Just looking for some feedback thumb.gif

In my experience, you always want fans exhausting off the heat from inside. Dust is always going to be a problem unless you build a case inside a vacuum chamber.

Most people just grab a datavac and do a monthly cleaning.
