They come in various sizes (ports) and are easy to hide - velcro attachment.
OOH! TY! I could use a couple of those for my new project. Hadn't even thought to look for something like that.

I used those same ones on my M8 at the top and one on the PSU side for the front fans



I found this one for UK: http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Fa...ans_19327.html

Thanks very very helpful.

I have been slowly building my M8 and pedestal and I have a few issues that would be very easy to solve with a few changes.

Firstly, Jim is great to deal with. I've had a few problems with my order and he is quick to fix them. Also, what everyone says about the cases is true - it is by far the most solid and best built I've ever had or seen.

The issues are twofold -
1) access between the two halves of the case
2) simplify attachment and separation the top and bottom half


If you fully load the pedestal - 2 rads, rear fans, and flexbay items then access to the items once the case is put together is problematic - you really only have access from the bottom, and then only to those items not blocked by the fans/rads. You cannot move the fans/rads out of the way without completely disassembling all items from the pedestal. It would be great to have access from the top (from inside the main case) but this is not possible now because fan hole covers/mounting plates attach from the bottom of the main case. You cannot remove them from underneath because the fans/rads are in the way.

Running tubing between the top and bottom is also an issue for me. I do not like "floating in space" quick disconnects and prefer to pass-through mount them. Because of the access issues for the mounting plate I cannot do this - the only way I could make this work is if the mounting plate screwed in from the main case (top). This is my recommendation! This same issue applies to any cables that have to pass through from upper to lower parts.

I will probably have to make some gusseted holes and pass the tubes and cables through them - which is OK, just not as nice.

Finally, attaching the top and bottom parts is also done from underneath (you screw up from inside the pedestal corners into the castor holes on the main case. Again, the rads/fans are in the way and cannot really be moved. If there was a another "castor" hole (in the middle - essentially a fifth hole) that screwed in from the top down to the pedestal it would all be easier. That is my second recommendation!

Sorry, this was a little long winded. Cheers

We're always looking for ways to make a better product, so I really appreciate the feedback. We'll take it under advisement and see if there is a way to improve access (and disconnect) to the pedestal.

Thanks

I would like to see a third row of grills at the top of the door and the ability to mount the PSU at the top of the case in addition to the current middle and bottom locations:

This would give ultimate flexability when locating radiators and PSUs in the case.

a comment on Bobh3501's post above -

I running into similar issues in my build now. I'm trying to figure out the best way to run tubing and wiring into the pedestal from the main case into the ped. I'm having to drill my own holes as there isn't any already cut. This is a bit of a hassle as you have to cut through both the main case and the pedestal top rail. The only other option at the moment is to leave a fan hole unused and run your cabling/tubes through the empty space.

It would be great if future versions had some pass thru holes on both sides of the M8/M10 that go from the bottom of the case into the pedestal for both wires and tubing. This could be done simply with two holes at the back of the case on either side.


If I'm being dense and missing something here, Jim please set me straight!! How are you utilizing the pedestal for any of your builds?
