hi!Hey, my apologies if this is not the right place for this post, but I was curious about the lower fan support on the SM560. Mine is coming in tomorrow, and I was curious if I could potentially use the NF-A15 HS Chromax as an additional case fan next to an acetek 645LT cooler? There's no full-thickness chromax NF-A12x, so I was thinking I could use the A15's as they use the same mounting points as a 120mm fan. Is there enough clearance to support that? Failing that, are there 140mm fan mounts?
Yup! I got it in yesterday, and there's only 120mm mounting holes. I'll stick with an NF-a12 on the bottom then. Ah well.hi!
In fact as far I remember, bottom grid & mounting system are meant for 120mm fan. Not sure if a 140mm fan with 120mm mounting point can fit SM560. Even if it fits I'm a bit concerned with noise as open grid is just meant for 120mm..
Hopefully it's easy to test...
I'm about to pull the trigger on an SM580 but am hesitant as I have a Corsair Hydro H115i Platinum (that I really don't want to have to change) but I am reading, and seeing, conflicting reports regarding compatibility. Looking at the compatibility sheet that Density have produced (https://www.density.sk/wp-content/uploads/SM580-Data-Sheet-ENGLISH-V1.2.pdf) it seems to contradict itself.The more I look into this the Platinum version works fine, but the RGB Pro does not. Working on a replacement subtop bracket that spaces it off to exactly the right position to fix it. Good work on making it fit though!
This is exactly what I was hoping I'd see - someone with it actually fitting. Would it be possible for you to post a video showing the sides / front being clipped into place? Reading other comments it would seem it is here where some of the aesthetic issues would happen. Thanks in advance.Hey every1 quick video of how I mounted my Corsair h115i rgb platinum in the Sliger sm580. If you have any questions let me know or if I did anything wrong. This is my 1st sff build. Also does any1 know how I can add pics and vids to a post in the imgur app?
