Looking good, is that a cold cathode switch at the bottom or fan control? Do you use the corsair SP fans on your cpu rad? How are the temps? I'm looking to replace my stock fans for my H100I due to noise but I've heard the performance suffers lots.

thank you
yes this is a switch to cold cathode , I just change it completely because it gives me an orange color instead of red. I mount RGB LED strip light in their place and that gives me a real color red .
my cpu cooler is a H110 and I keep ventilators original because it is 140 mm and it really is very quiet even if I overclock my cpu to 4.6 Ghz.
the normal operating temperature between 28 and 30 degree Celsus.
I have two aditional ventilatteur Corsair AF120 at the front of the box

Do you maybe know if they sell extender cables for the cold cathodes? Or maybe different colours? Annoying to have to sleeve them since most of them are bright white!
post #4155 of 4610
no ;no cable extend , but you can do it your self it s easy; and you can slave thème too.

anyone know where to buy precut acrylic like this? or do i need to cut it myself? links would be appreciate, thanks!



post #4157 of 4610
I got mine from Lowe's.. you buy a small sheet and have them cut it to the dimension you need/want...

FrozenCPU.com also sells some precut pieces.. just have to look around a bit

Wasn't really sure where to put this, but I figured as the 330R has the same internals as the 300R and is also a Carbide series case, I'll post it here:

I've just finished transplanting my secondary rig into a 330R, and threw in a USB 3 card and fan controller in while I was at it.





Cable management was a bit of a bear - the front panel audio cable was too short to route behind the motherboard tray, and molex cable to the USB 3 card didn't help. I managed it in the end though!

Hello. Im a proud owner of a 400r with a window mod smile.gif

Meanwhile, my 4670k is chugging along 83C BF4 With stock intel CPU Cooler with IC Diamond 7 on it. Now i want to know if a Kraken x60 with 2 noctua f14 fans will fit on the top OR if i need to cut out the drive cage and use the noctua's as intake and push on rad. my 400r also has 120mmx2 fan slots infront of the drive cage, 1x140mm on the 'floor' and 140/120mm x2 in the front. but then i would have to somehow move those fans... My motherboard is a MSI Z87gd-65 and im using Mushkin blackline Enhanced memory. The kraken x60 compatibility pdf says it fits with new holes. Cant find a guide anywhere.

Thanks, Longstreet.

I just picked up a 200R because I needed a smaller case to fit a particular location. I then modded it pretty heavily.... thought I would post that here, see what other owners think:

Pretty decent little case for the money... although it is easily improved.
