CaseLabs MAGNUM M8K

Today the start of a new build with a super case: the CaseLabs Magnum M8 Labs

Sponsored by...... CaseLabs, Lamptron, Highflow, Coolermaster and EKWB











First my thanks goes out to Jim (CaseLabs) for providing this beautiful case
Received this beautiful gift on my birthday





Offcourse unwrapping it right away







Once out of the box











One of the finest cases I've ever seen, quality is superb







And with an XL window on the right side





And also on the left side



After admiring the outside for some time, the inside



With 3 HDD cages



Attached with screws and rubbers



Pins to hold everything in place



With two vertical accessory mounts







Once everything is removed there is a lot of space for a nice WC setup





Other side also perfect quality



Place at the bottom for a 360 radiator



Passages for tubes and / or wiring





8 Slots is enough



And enough space for various purposes



Also with a Horizontal Accessory Mount



And included 2x Lamptron switches which also perfectly finished



Already sleeved



The windows also very nice and simple mounted



Nothing pasted or with bent strips, but with nuts



So always easy to exchange if necessary. After damage or any other acrylic color replacing. Clamping mechanism is also well thought







This is also applied to the front and top panel, which is also removable





Space for 3x 120mm fans



But that's not all. There was another package





Quickly unwrapping it again



And it is the extended pedestal, for all your radiators and other stuff







At the back holes for 2x 140mm fan





So much space inside, but I choose for a bracket for 2x 360 radiator



The front also has a removable panel. Always nice to mod



So the extended pedastal. Lots of extra space, a real nice addition



Once installed everything, I was shocked



Really big









Some more pictures of the beautiful extra addition











So a new build with a superb case from:

This is going to be mega!! Another Kier mod with a sublime case and sooo many possabilities.

Not only could it be the pesestal but you could use it for the top instead and put some awesome screen in that front space!

Then again im sure you got this one all planned out already

Dont know, never tried it



Before we even get to modding, an overview of all the accessories

One Standard HDD Cage is coming with the case





Ordered two more



As I mentioned earlier comes with rubber bands for installing at the front with screws



With gaskets and mounting bolts for the HDDs







The SSD Mounting Kit



Two Vertical Accessory Mount





And the Horizontal Accessory Mount





These will be very useful



A PSU Support Bracket For heavy powersupplies



A lot of Flex-Bay Device Mount



Two x 360 Radiator Side Mount For in the pedestal



And a Bottom Accessory Mount





To replace the standard bottom covers, consists of three sizes (picture is the longest)
A few HDD Opening Cover Plates Replacement cover plates for the HDD openings on the PSU side



A Large Attachment Plate for various purposes such as installing reservoirs or miscellaneous







And finally, all the spare parts comes with the case







Of course I also had time to do some modding. A little teaser

Update!!!

Ok, my friends Its modding time
Beneath the top cover there are holes for 120mm fans, which I dont need.
These will disappear, because I want a good view from all sides

So taped and marked



Always an exciting moment...the first cut-out





I also slightly modified the recesses in the bottom of the case. There were also holes for 120mm fans (3x) on both sides



Between the pedestal and the case I have inserted an acrylic plate, which makes the separation between the two



Later i am gonna use fill ports for the tubes and/ or acrylic pipes





In the top cover I also made openings ​​with the same size as the recesses underneath







Piece of acrylic for the top window







For the front I also did some cutting, but first marking





The same dimensions as the 5.25 bays





Piece of acrylic behind



Going to use the exciting fanholes because of the 360 rad behind it later







To keep the color combination (black / silver) I have cut a piece of aluminum with the fanholes. And a hole for the switch. This is further extended to the right with displays, and more switches in the middle.



What's going to look like this



More to come

Maybe you could open the cuts a little bit to the sides (on both cuts)?

Keep modding!

The story continues......With some nice hardware and more

The hardware is a nice Gigabyte mobo: The Z68X-UD4-B3



And a great CPU: The i7-2600K



I've changed my mind regarding the front. For this I made the aluminum front again



The opening above is for 2 HDD coolers. Always fun to see how the flow is





Made it black





In order to be able to make this happen, there where some adjustments necessary





After some dremel cutting and filing









So I've slightly modified the existing hdd cages and placed it







And this is how the front looks for now. There also are coming two Lamptrons touch controllers in it





I also want to thank Cooler Master for providing theTurbine Master Mach 1.8 fans
And...a beautiful M2 Silent pro 1500W
He's big....really big



Nice sticker, not unimportant lol



After placing the PSU I've been playing with the space. And to fill this space I've cut a piece of aluminum and bent it.



Cut a piece of 5mm black acrylic



This will be the bottom





On this I will place two reservoirs, not the 150mm but 250mm









Left here and there some space for some ideas





And at the back I've made a fanhole for a nice small 80mm fan



More to come
