No sir, SM560 was updated on July 4th for the 120mm AIO kit and support for GPUs up to 325mm long, as well as adding the HDD and SSD kits. Very happy with where the SM560 is at this point, really has no flaws I am aware of. It's currently ready to go on Newegg and Amazon as far as I am concerned.

Also need to add this general notice:

V2 of the SM580 is 100% cancelled

If the limited compatibility of 280mm does not work for you, and you cannot use a 240mm, please consider either a Cerberus or SV590.
Are you considering moving forward with the ITX version of the Cerberus to allow for better radiator support? That would be a banger.

Pity, seems a lot of different configurations being rushed to market now with restrictive layouts. I think also neither Cerberus or SV590 are suitable for 280mm. While with the current i9-9900k(s) or 3900x/3950x processors the 280mm AIO's are important.

Isn't the SV590 capable of housing a 360mm?

@KSliger I know you’ve gone back and forth with making the 570/580 panel style for the 550/560 lineup, and wondered if you’ve thought anymore about that? If you have decided yes, then GREAT! If you’ve decided no, then how much money would I have to throw at you to get those panels made?

Hey, is the handled top option still making its way to the 550 or 560? Thank you!

Correct, on the 590 being 360mm.

Cerberus is also really solid with ITX in it and a 280mm in bottom. Others in the Cerberus thread often put 2x 240mm or 280mm + 120mm in it as well.

We have trouble keeping up with all the current orders / options that a whole new panel set might really cause problems. Maybe Early next year can try it out?

Not anytime soon, have been working on some ideas but nothing is making any traction. This is probably an early next year thing as well with our current work load and holidays coming up.

Optimum Tech said that the side panel are a pain to take off do I have to worry about the pins breaking or anything or has this been fixed?

They get easier after you do it a few times, the power coat put on the case is also in the clips where the pins press in and this wears down after a few opens closes.

Metal pins are super rugged you would have to be doing something crazy to break them, just takes a bit of pulling force the first few times. But hey you know they are never going to just fall off XD

Another question does anyone know or have any idea what length custom cables I should get for the SM580. I was looking at getting the SF750 by corsair and getting custom cables from cable mods but don't have any idea what size cables?

Which motherboard and GPU are you planning on using? This helps with getting accurate cable lengths.

Asrock z390 phantom gaming itx and 1 of the evga rtx 2080 ti xc cards the 2 fan non thick gpu

Also the PSU will be the SF750 and the fan will be facing the glass side panel

Also I have a question how much of a pain is cable management when using the H100i Pro with the extra 4 cables

I'll second this, I disliked the clips at first, but they have loosened up nicely.

I've got the H100i Platinum AIO in my 580 with the RGB fans and zipties definitely come in handy when bundling up all the cables so they're not flapping around everywhere. Takes a little planning but its not too bad once you figure out how you want everything oriented.

OK. You'll want your 24 pin to be 175mm, the CPU 8 pin to be 250mm and the pcie cables to be 270mm.

How about the Sata Cable. I will beed 3 SATA connections 1 for the H100i Pro and 2 for the SATA drives under the front panel how long should be the cable for the 2 SATA Drives and how much spacing between the 2 drives when using that bracket?

Also I will be using 1 PCI cable that will have 2 8pin is that fine from cable mod to limit cables?

Cable mods only does 250mm :(

Honestly, I hate making SATA cables so I just ended up using the stock one. There's probably ~10cm of slack that can be removed between the psu and the first of the SATA connectors (the one that goes to the AIO), the lengths between the connectors is pretty good though.
