Guys I'm considering changing my GPU to a AIO 1080 Hybrid.
Is it safe to place the cooler as exhaust in the bottom right area near the CPU exhaust?

I'm asking because usually AIO coolers are made to be placed ABOVE the GPU, and in this case, it will be BELOW the GPU. I'm afraid the pump is not ready to work like this.

Just purchased the Corsair 400C White.
It's a small and spacious case with a good feel to It so far. I'm waiting for a few more parts so I've only installed the PSU and a fan for now.

For Corsair: One thing I am curious about, whats with the hole in the case underneath the drive bays after you take out the bays, no gromit of sorts to plug it ?



My build will be white themed to blend into the livingroom. Specs:

Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake
-
MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Sea Hawk X
-
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200MHz 16GB
-
ASUS ROG Maximum IX Hero
-
Corsair ML 120 PRO LED White x4
-
Deepcool Captain 240 EX White CPU Cooler
-
Corsair Sleeved PSU kit White
-
Corsair HX1000i

I got the PSU for free after a RMA of my previous Corsair PSU. From 650w gold to 1000w platinum, you're not being cheapskates on replacement products Corsair, I'll give you that.
Will post some pictures once I have all the parts and start putting It together.



I would like some input on airflow in my build. I plan on having the CPU 240 radiator in the front, so thats 3 120mm intake fans in the front, two with resistance and one with free airflow.

Then theres the radiator for the gfx card, I figured I would place It on the back of the case, but as intake to receive fresh air for cooling, and then maybe invest in two 140mm fans in the top of the case of exhaust, so thats:

3x 120mm Intake front
1x 120mm Intake back
2x 140mm Exhaust top

What do you think?

Hello!
I´m thinkin about getting a corsair 400C and i´m wondering if it´s noisier than other cases.
I like how it looks, but that full acrylic panel could be a little noisy right?

For filters, I use the front and side (intake) from the following:
http://www.demcifilter.com/c29/CARBIDE-500R.aspx

I put the magnetic filter in front of the front fans and replace the front cover. The fans at the back and top are exhaust, no filters.

I use compressed air to blow out the case occasionally since the filter keep out the majority of the dust.

I can't find anything on the 400C specifically, but based on the Define R5 at least, windowed panels don't seem to matter much at all. Go with whatever you prefer.

I mean, not talking about noise isolation, but the "borderless" acrylic panel could have a vibration problem?
