    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    I think this thread is more focused on the Cerberus cases, and things that fit in it, i.e size and compatibility etc. I don't think it is for telling the performance differences for cooling between two air cooler. However, maybe someone might answer. Unless you're asking in terms of how well...

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    If in any case you're likely to experience what I did, I would assume a 240mm RAD would be a better choice. it'd give you slightly more room to not crush the board against it. I can clarify what I meant, as I feel I sounded vague in my last comment. Basically, there a connectors at the...

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    In my experience of installing 280mm rad, having the X62 30 mm-thickness/280mm and then later H115i Pro 30mm-thickness/280mm, I didn't have any space for the cables at the bottom of the motherboard (ATX motherboard), unless I removed the fans from the top, or even if I tried 15mm fans. The...

    I think that is a feature. And I like that feature a lot. Because if one is not intended to visit the thread often, but only at a certain time when the topic is interesting, then they'll get updates in correlation to how active the user is on the thread. Saves the inbox folder of the e-mail.

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    When I didn't have the PSU to the front, I had Kraken x62 (280mm) and H115i Pro (280mm) radiator to the front. It does indeed work. But it depends on your GFX too. depends how long it is, because it might not get enough access, depending on what card it is. I got Vega Frontier Edition GFX, it...

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    Corsair's latest AiO got thinner pump/heatsink. The only difference with the latest AiO's from Corsair is that they use Asetek V6 pump, Kraken uses Asetek v5 pump. I'm not sure what the difference was entirely, between these two pumps. But I think it is that V6 had a function with RGB. V5...

    No, you won't even have 0.5mm wriggle room, space. It'll be a tight-fit against the pump/heatsink. Well, that was at least how it was with me, when I used HX1200i. I had somewhat the same dilemma as you. But I didn't use any more than a Vega Frontier and i9 9900K (Not an enthusiast chip, nor an...

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    I've used an ATX PSU in the Cerberus X, with Kraken X62 cooler. My PSU was HX1200i. I don't recommend it. I changed my PSU and my AiO later. Now I'm using SFX SF750 and Corsair H115i Pro. When you use an ATX PSU with the Kraken, the pump/heatsink top goes against the PSU very tightly. It...

    They got out for me with ease. But you should always use good screw drivers. Don't want to ruin the shape of the screw, because then it'll be difficult to take them out.

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    Sorry, I didn't understand you correctly. I removed the hinge easily. Didn't have any problems with it. Unless, you mean you want to remove the back screws of the hinge, those that are on the left side of the case. Well, those aren't really screws. But you lift the hinge upwards, and slowly...

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    Do you know what size of the plexiglass you need? I wonder if one could put 3M command velcro strips on the edges of the acrylic plexiglass, for the inside, and then attach it to the panel. I literally use command strips for everything. They're easy to take off, and to put on. I love the...

    Oh it is already cut for the glass. Sorry, I guess I misunderstood.

    That’s great. But wouldn’t that ruin the nice powder coating. Or you are probably going to re-apply it on the edges. Perhaps regular paint will do. Idk. Could be relatively easy to cut with a dremel multi-tool and then get some acrylic plexi glass from eBay or something. Interesting project.
