CaseLabs m8 - How many radiators will it fit?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
The answer is, four 360 mm radiators without any modding.

A big thank you goes out to Jim from CaseLabs for making this happen:gunner2:
Its an awsome case!!! Check it out here:

2 in the top

1 in the bottom of the psu compartment.
This will however only allow you to use 1 psu!

And one in the bottom of the mainboard compartment.

Putting a radiator in the bottom of the mainboard compartment will however kill 2, MAYBE 3 of your slots. Its a tight fit if it only takes two. You can however just leave it with 1 fan in the front.

With all of this, you still have room for two hdd bays (8 harddrives, or for example 7 harddrives and two ssd´s etc. 2 ssd´s takes up what 1 drive does) and 4 5.25" bays if you take the front fans off. Maybe only two if you have full fans on.
You can also just use only one hdd bay in the psu compartment, and then have 3 more 5.25" bays for aquaero epicness or likely in the motherboard compartment!

Hope you could use it!

Chicks totally dig this case. However, i think you are also forgetting the front panel can accomodate 3 120mm fans, which would be adequate for a 5th rad, correct?

sadly not, if you look at pic 2, you can see that the spacing between the radiator and front panel is only a few cm. No way you could get a 360 in there:D You could, however, put a few more 120 mm inthere, but with 4 360 i dont see why anyone would do that:D

Oooooooooh, I see. Hm. Interesting. Ah well, it's an insanely awesome case nonetheless. Ordering mine on the 11th. (does happy dance)

If you made all the rad fans intake, then you would still have 4-6 120mm fans exhaust from the front, 1 120 out the back, and possibly 3 40mm out the back depending on the back panel option you choose.

So you would pull cool air in from top and bottom and exhaust hot air front and back.

oh I c.... the panels on the front left can have fans attached to them... wave2.gif

My plan is to use 3 radiators, and have them all as intake, to take care of the "hot air trough radiator" problem:P So far i am in love lol.
