What carbon fiber components can I use with a carbon fiber DSMC BRAIN?

You can use the following components with a carbon fiber DSMC® BRAIN®:

  • DSMC 1.8" SSD Side Module (Carbon Fiber RED DRAGON®)
  • Carbon Fiber RED MINI-MAG® Side SSD Module
  • Magnesium lens mounts 

 

Can I mix carbon fiber and aluminum side SSD modules?

No, DO NOT mix carbon fiber and aluminum side SSD modules.

The structural mounting points for the DSMC 1.8" SSD Side Module (Carbon Fiber RED DRAGON) and Carbon Fiber RED MINI-MAG Side SSD Module are optimized for the carbon fiber DSMC BRAIN The structural mounting points for the standard aluminum side SSD modules are optimized for use with the standard aluminum DSMC BRAIN.

WARNING: Damage to the DSMC BRAIN, side SSD module, or other components of the DSMC system caused by mixing carbon fiber components with non-carbon-fiber components is not covered under warranty, and may void the warranty for both the BRAIN and the side SSD module.

 

Can I mix and match side SSD module screws?

Depending on what type of side SSD you have, you may be able to mix and match side SSD module screws:

  • Aluminum Side SSD Module Screws: Attach to the standard aluminum DSMC BRAIN using the same screws and tools using the following screws:
    • Black M3x0.5 x 6 mm cap screws: Included with the standard aluminum EPIC BRAIN and ship with the DSMC 1.8" SSD Side Module, can be used with either the aluminum EPIC or SCARLET®
    • Black M3x0.5 x 5.5 mm cap screws: Included with the standard aluminum SCARLET BRAIN, can be used with either the aluminum EPIC or SCARLET
  • Carbon Fiber Side SSD Module Screws: Attach the carbon fiber side SSD modules to the carbon fiber DSMC BRAIN using only the red (colored) M3x0.5 x 6 mm cap screws that come with the carbon fiber DSMC BRAIN. The red (colored) screws are made of a different material than the black screws that come with the standard aluminum DSMC BRAIN, and are designed to engage specifically with the lightweight panels of the carbon fiber BRAIN.

WARNING: DO NOT attach a carbon fiber side SSD module using any screws except the red (colored) screws that are provided. Using other screws, including the screws that come with the standard aluminum DSMC BRAIN or side SSD modules, will strip the through holes and damage the panels of the carbon fiber DSMC BRAIN.

WARNING: Damage to the DSMC BRAIN, side SSD module, or other components of the DSMC system caused by using non-approved screws with the side SSD module is not covered under warranty, and may void the warranty for both the BRAIN and the side SSD module.

 

Can I use magnesium lens mounts on the standard aluminum DSMC BRAIN?

No. DO NOT use magnesium lens mounts on the standard aluminum DSMC BRAIN. The Magnesium lens mounts are only compatible with the EPIC-M CF DRAGON, WEAPON® CF, and WEAPON Magnesium cameras.

Warning: Damage to the DSMC BRAIN, lens mount, or other components of the DSMC system caused by using a magnesium lens mount on the standard aluminum BRAIN is not covered under warranty, and may void the warranty for both the BRAIN and the lens mount.

 

Can I use titanium or aluminum lens mounts with the carbon fiber DSMC BRAIN?

No. RED® recommends that you DO NOT use aluminum or titanium lens mounts on the carbon fiber DSMC BRAIN. Titanium and aluminum DSMC Lens Mounts are only compatible with WEAPON CF and WEAPON Magnesium cameras, as well as the standard aluminum DSMC BRAINs.

WARNING: Damage to the DSMC BRAIN, lens mount, or other components of the DSMC system caused by using an aluminum or titanium lens mount on the carbon fiber BRAIN is not covered under warranty, and may void the warranty for both the BRAIN and the lens mount.
