(Build Log) Newbix Cube: Case labs M8, Dual loop

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
After seeing the new line of cases manufactured by Case Labs I couldn't resist ordering an M8.

The case arrived a few days ago but I didn't take any pictures of the packaging or the unpacking. All I will say is that it came in a big box, I opened the box ,took it out of the box and started working on it..

The plan is to run 2 loops with a total of 3 triple rads.

I spent a fair bit of time planning the layout and unfortunately my plans required a bit of cutting and drilling.

In order to fit 2 rads on the top of the case I needed to enlarge the openings to allow access to the barbs:


After a couple minutes with an angle grinder the opening in now the right size.


Installed the 2 rads on the top:




I have completed both loops and will post additional pic's later.

Installing the 2 rads on top was not bad since the case is designed for it. Adding the 3rd rad to the front required a bit more thinking. The front of this case is not designed for rads but because one of my rads is a Swiftech drive (Rad/pump combo) it needed to be installed upright.



All rads installed:




Res mounted and tubing installed for CPU:





Res and pump mounted, tubing installed for GPU's:





Water installed and Leak testing:

Finally complete.
Had a bit of an issue getting the computer to start up but ,after a couple hours of troubleshooting, I realized that I had an extra standoff installed on the motherboard tray and that was the problem.

Here are pics of the completed build:

those look like rs 360 rads?

Might be a little bit excessive in my opinion. How hot does your 980x get? and if your 570 is anything like my 580 then i don't really see the need for 2x 360 rads. I think you could get by on 1x 360 rad and 1x 140 rad in push pull.

But your build is really interesting and i would like to see the finish product!

They are all Swiftech rads. 2 rads for the CPU and one for the (2) GTX570's.

All the parts, except for the case, are from my sig rig so I figured I should re-use them all. I agree its more than required but excessive is what we do best at OCN.

Added more pics to the OP.

Build is finished. New pics added to OP.

For those considering a new case have a serious look at Case Labs. I can't say enough good things about the M8.
