Default Caselabs SMA8 or how I hate money

OK so lets begin, may as well start with a parts list. Most of what you will see below I have already and some things I'm still waiting on release and/or will need them (fittings etc)

First off this build is full retard and I know how much of a over kill it is, how ever just once I wanted to try building a over the top hardline rgb'ed out the ass custom overkill PC that will give me a challenge of building it so yes i know its dumb, just enjoy it


No even all of the WC parts are here in this photo

560mm Alphacool Monsta radiator
2 EK Coolstream XE 360mm radiators
EK Coolstream PE 480mm Radiator
Bitspower DSTOPX2 dual D5 pump mount
2 Protium Large black clear reservoirs with Etheral Dual mounts
Aquaero 6XT
2 Aquacomputer D5 pumps with Aquabus
Aquastream XT Flow sensor
4 Spitty9's (Fan splitters)
5 Thermaltake Riing plus 140mm RGGGGBBBBBBBB fans :catdrugs:
5 Thermaltake Riing plus 120mm RRRRGGGGBBBBB fans :catdrugs:
EK 16mm hardline fittings and extensions
and a bunch of noctua 140mm and 120mm fans to make ever radiator push push (theses are from my old build and will be out of sight)

as for actual PC parts in the case its going to have the following
2 1080ti FE cards with full cover EK water blocks and back-plates
a Threadripper + Mobo once thats out with a Mono block for the CPU and the VRM's on the mobo
G-skill RGB ram to suit max ram speed + timings

So why the over kill? well with 2 1080tis and a (hopefully 4ghz) 16c/32t Tripper im looking at 300w per gpu and if I9 is anything to go by about 400-500w from the cpu+vrms so theres a lot of heat to be cooled

to fit all this i need a case....

The case will be a Caselabs SMA8, this thing is fucking gigantic and with some extra brackets can mount a 560mm rad on the bottom up to a monsta 80mm thick with push pull fans AND a 60mm thick EK XE 360mm rad push pull on the other side of the lower deck.

However even a lower section large enough to house a small kitty

can become full very fast

Well thats not so bad...


What about down in the basement...




Ok so its going to be a little tight but all the wires will fit...right? its not like the PSU is going to be a tight fit ether hah who would be that dumb right?

oh...guess I am, As future photos will show that i will only have a area of 150mm x 80mm x 180mm to fill a 1200W psu and all the cables needed to power everything. I'll leave this monster post with a rough idea of how my tubing is going to go inside the case.

Love building in caselabs cases, sure not the cheapest, but for custom watercooling, i just love them!

I recently build my mates TH10W (double width as noraml TH10, and this thing is enormous, just went white LEDs, bit old school, RGB is tacky and for the children!

Which tubing you using? I have clear primo tubing with a lavender (purple ) die, and once the RGBS are on, doesn't look that great tbh haha.

don't know if this will put this into perspective

right now using a Corsair RM1000i 80+ Gold

powers rig 1
5960x @ 4.7 with 2x GTX1080 Ti SLI

Works great

Looking forward the finished build!

im using EK 16mm acrylic tubing and yeah I was going to stick with my 1000w seasonic psu but after doing the rough maths of cpu mobo 2 gpus and the WC stuff a 1200W psu will give me a bit of head room

I also finished polishing the dual pump top and the results are really worth the 4 hours it took
