It took surprisingly long just to get two rivets drilled out. Gitta finish the other 8 tomorrow

Hi.
I'm seeing you're talking about the rivets of the bottom cage.. I too had in mind to remove it, to install my pump+top there... but I was going to dremel the cage itself out ( letting the rivets in place, but cutting into the cage ), or maybe to dremel the rivets into their little bits ( not the head of the rivets, but the other side, the little ball ) and then see if the rivets would come out if I tried to push them ( with some point and a hammer ? )... well, dunno what would be the best way.

Well, I came back here to ask for something else at first
I have a 140mm Silent Wings 2 that I'm putting at the top, and the fan is decoupled from where it's attached ( 1mm of space ).. that is with the stock mounts of the fan.
Now am I better to put the fan at the ceiling or on the roof ? ( underside or upperside ).. the fan will be set as pull.. and there's enough room above the motherboard for the underside placement.
Thanks

Hello All,

Haven't posted much, but I ssure read a lot here. I have done some pretty decent upgrades since last time I posted. I upgraded from a Rosewill HIVE 650 watt PSU to a Corsair HX1050 (me and my boss split a mining rigs components).

I also upgraded my air cooler a bit. I was not happy with the long term results of my NZXT Respire T20, the idle temps were a bit high for my 4.2 overclock (I did lower my v. core quite a bit, so that helped as well). So with some tinkering I took off the 2 stock fans off my 410 case. I mounted one fan as normal using the bracket. For the pull fan, I used some nice strong adhesive velcro (but not strong enough to be permanent), this method actually worked very well, keeps my load temps around 61C, which is quite impressive.

I also upgraded my XFX HD7870 ghz to 2x Sapphire 7950 Dual-X's (unlocked v. core), and they run pretty damn awesome on my 60hz monitor (works even better when i frame lock to 59FPS on most games using RadeonPro). I also do not overclock them as I dont really see a need until i get a 144hz monitor...

My computer scored a 12638 on 3DMark 11.

I did have a bit of a downgrade. Due to current funds, my 1TB black drive died on me, and I had to swap to a WD Blue..Thing is..I am getting better read and writes on my blue than I ever did on my Black. Win I guess..

I will be getting the S340 pretty soon, though.
That is a Phanteks right? I'm looking to put one in my build and I want to know how it fits. Does it have any clearance issues with the side panel? Does it cover any of the RAM slots? Does it clear the Ripjaws and did you have to offset any of the fans?

Sorry for the late reply. I removed the heatspreaders from my RAM, so I could run it on dual channel. Before that I just ran them below the heatsink not the fan. The side panel is a pretty tight fit, it scratched my window a bit and is pretty hard to close. It stills "fits" nonetheless. I run both of the fans bottomed out as much as I can.

Hi y'all

I've been looking for a case, found out about 410 today and it caught my eye immediately. I've got some questions, seems I'm in the right place to ask them.

I've got Sapphire 290 Tri-X (305mm long), will it fit without removing the cage ?
Will a 140mm fan on the side as intake cause excessive noise (I've got aerocool case and you just can't put the fan on the side as intake, the noise is unbearable) ?
Is there a fan controller ? How many fans can it control at the same time ?

also: what color should I seek ?


I like this one, it's also the cheapest

thx for any help

Hi and welcome

- With the front cage in place, and with no fan attached to it, there's 30cm of space from the cage to the slots at the back.. maybe just a little more, but a 30,5cm card may be too tight a fit.. I fear that it wouldn't work, unless maybe with a bit of modding of the cage. But other guys here may say they have 30,5cm cards and that it fits, I don't know for sure.
Without the cage, you have ~42,5cm.

- Some Aerocool fans are said to be quite noisy ( I'm thinking of the Shark ).. If you opt for a silent 140mm-fan, I think there's no reason for it to become suddenly noisy as a side intake on the 410. I recommend Scythe (Slipstream) and BeQuiet! fans.. the BeQuiet! Silent Wings 2 is truly a ruler in quietness.

- Yes there's a 3 level-fan controller, and you can connect up to 7 fans to it.

- Go on NZXT website to see what color combinations are available wink.gif and that black/gold trims one isn't listed, but is available too, it's a special edition. I've also seen an NVidia special edition, a black/green trims model. Choose what you like most tongue.gif And the front LEDs are not the same color for every model, that's another color change.
