Prior to this case I had 2 rads in an external rad box and 1 rad mounted in the top of my Antec 1200. With all 3 rads now in the M8 I haven't noticed any difference in temps.
I think the case is large enough that intake or exhaust won't make much of a difference.

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.
You used all bitspower fittings it seems... what fittings and model of fittings did you use for the two you tapped thru the motherboard panel?

To pass through the center panel I drilled 3/4" holes and used Bitspower Case Top Water Fill/ Through Hole Fitting Set.

What type of fan controllers are you using? Been planning parts for my build. Those look pretty nice.

Nice rig man!

Serious question so I can finish up my M8 How did you get the reservoir and the fans to fit underneath the extended top?

I think I know the answer. First we start with the extended top.

Thanks,

Ok so you have 64mm of workable space. Now in this case he used Swiftech MCR320's which have these dimensions.

Width:5.0"
128mm
Height:16"
410mm
Thickness:1.3"
34mm


Those also looked like Gentle Typhoons which are 25mm thickness.

so by specs 34+25 = 59mm together underneath a 64mm extended top - so with everything put together he just barely squeezes them all in

At least based on the info I see - I hope I'm not wrong here

You are correct.

The extended top allows you to fit a rad/fan combination as long as it is under 2 1/2" (Probably closer to 2 3/4"). My Swiftech rads with Gentle Typhoons fans fit with room to spare.
