Most have gone through a bottom fan hole, either straight or have made a coverplate to pretty it up some.

That is something I've been toying with too. I already have all 6 bottom fans wired up, but it wouldn't be that big of a deal to pull one . . . I'm leaning towards drilling though.

That's we've done here (one reason the bottom plates exist). We've used compression fittings for tubing and one of the case grommets for wiring. Putting a couple of holes in though, isn't a bad idea. We'll think about it.

Bear907 -

I have drilled my own holes to support pass-through quick disconnects and wiring - CL has the bottom assessory mounts that you can use for this and they look nicer than just leaving an open fan hole. I had a hell of a time drilling through the thicker than expected aluminum though - if you can avoid drilling through the actual case bottom then I would recommend it. It's not like drilling through a Silverstone.

I've decided to move forward with drilling what I need. I have all the fan holes used already, and don't like the look of taking one out - kinda of breaks what I was trying to achieve. I've already drilled a few holes for cable management through the top and bottom and while it's thick, it's not terribly hard to get through. A bit of patience and a step bit served me quite well.

The trick is going to be getting the holes to line up as I'll need to drill the main case and and ped seperately.

Thanks for the feedback - and many thanks to jim and CL. I've had a great time working with the M8!

Could you please add the option of a stealth optical drive as per this thread http://www.overclock.net/case-labs/1...l#post14544446 to the list of suggestions.

Thanks
James
