I dont feel comfortable long term with having the pump/res combos mounted to just the stock thin fan cover plates. With the rubber anti-vibration screws they have to much movement, and it also looks too simple. Im going to add EK DDC UNI mounted upside-down under each, and then attach them to EKs new 120mm universal pump bracket. I did this with my latest build, but I could only mount it to the fan holes on the floor, and thus I couldnt have them facing the window like I wanted, the GPUs blocked the left one. Now, im going to drill 120mm holes into my exact desired spot on the 240mm bottom accessory mount. This way they will sit much higher, become a single unit, have much better strength and perfectly mirror each other. If i decide to mount them on top of a fan too, the pumps will run cooler also.

oh yeah, I actually did fix that. It looked even worse in person, somehow I managed to forget to tighten 3 of the 4 screws for that block.... haha.

Thanks

I ordered my Gun metal chassis divider and mounting plate earlier today, cant wait to get them so I can finish the build for good. I thought adding Grey to the rest of the build would contrast nicely. I was also thinking of changing my coolant from white and red to white and grey. Thoughts?

I believe the last official word was along the lines of "backburnered until we're back to normal lead times", so I'm guessing at least another month or two but that's pure speculation.

I wouldn't do the coolant grey. This is just personal opinion, of course, but I think having the coolant contrast the interior of the build is a good idea.

As Whitewulf said, the X2 had been pushed back a little. X99 really hit us hard with new orders (which is awesome) and that in turn pushed our production time back on new orders. We want to make sure the lead times are back where they need to be before we do anything else.

However, we're getting there, and when we do Jim and Kevin will focus on the X2 to make sure it's an awesome chassis worth your money.

Awesome, completely makes sense. I've been getting an urge to build and ITX rig but can't pull the trigger on all the parts yet. Will be waiting for X2

Morning CaseLabs Owners,

In the Mercury S3, I want to mount my reservoir on the backside of the front 240 rad. What's the best mounting kit to use with an EK reservoir? I found something for the Bitspower reservoir series, but I'm worried it isn't going to work with EK.

Thanks! I'm finding this 5.25 bay res to be a pain over time... keeping her topped off, making adjustments to the line, etc.l

I hear you on that! I can't wait to pull the trigger on a pair of S8's (one normal, one tech bench) and a few extra accessories (accessory mounts, additional flex-bay rad mounts, flex-bay covers, etc... almost all the extras I add in will be primered *grins*). I'm just, well... Saving up the $1,200 or so USD that order's probably going to turn out to be o_O But it will totally be worth the wait!



Come to think of it, I always did wonder - if you order multiple cases at once, do they get shipped together, or separately? Thinking specifically as to whether or not it would save on international shipping costs.

I would think there would be some savings combining the case, test bench, and parts into one order. Possibly a break on duty charges as well, although there is no rhyme or reason on how customs decide what they're going to rip you off for at the border.
It's tough to decide on every bit and piece you think you'll need initially though.
After ordering and receiving my initial S8 order, I wound up buying some more panels and goodies for it on a second order.rolleyes.gif
