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
