@Wahaha360 I am dead set on using the Arctic Liquid Freezer II 280mm AIO in this case as you have in your posted photos. I see that particular AIO's radiator/fan thickness is thicker than the documented specs allow for, yet I see that you have done it. It has been hinted at in a reddit post with those same photos that up to 65mm of space is available for the Rad/fans. How was this achieved? I sit something I can do without cutting or drilling the case?
For the Arctic to fit, just remove the top rails per the instruction manual and have some patience, no cutting or drilling required.
Same question here. From the Feb 1st update, it mentioned that it was done using SFX PSU. If I plan to use an SFXL PSU how would the compatibility change?
SFX-L will work the same as SFX in the case.
Well hell... I think I just answered my own question. The screws holding in the radiator brackets on the front of the case are a bit too long so they stop the radiator from sitting flush in the case. Replacing them with shorter screws allows you to take advantage of the full 65mm gap between the front of the case and the motherboard tray.
And It looks like that only is an issue if you are using 240mm radiators requiring the bracket. So when using a 280mm radiator without the bracket you have access to the entire 65mm gap?
There should be short screws that comes with the radiator.
240mm radiator is only 1mm thick, so it sacrifices 1mm radiator thickness compatability.
I have a SF600 gold and would like ask you guys what length should I go with for a EPS modular cable. Would 600mm be enough? Thank you very much!
Small case, that length should be more than enough
Anyone have news regarding the Iceman Pump/Res combo for the Meshlicious case? I can't seem to find any information on their website and no one is talking about it.
Optimum Tech has it
Question about the front I/O, specifically the USB-A port - is this connected to the mobo with a male to male 20/19 pin cable, or is the end connected to the USB-A port hardwired?
I do not know for certainty. But, judging from the pics, it is almost certain that the entire assembly is a one-piece construction without anything detachable/replaceable. That is, the other end of that cable cannot be unplugged and replaced easily as it is 'hardwired'. From a manufacturing cost and assembly point of view, this is usually so. If anything goes wrong, that entire assembly is to be replaced, I suppose.
20/19 Pin cable on the other end for motherboard header.
