[Official] Corsair Vengeance C70 Gaming Case Owner Club - Page 155

post #1541 of 8407
Added a bitfenix alchemy blue 60 cm strip to the front panel. I zip tied it to the 3 struts on the inside (left, right, bottom). Don't really know what the point was but just wanted to try the product lol. they are pretty bright i think and definately a good blue.

changed my front fans out to cougar 120 mm votex hydro bearings from the cheaper versions i had. They blow good air! unfortunately my nzxt hue died with a load pop like 5 minutes after finishing all that ( pc is 100% fine so not the psu) frown.gif started the rma but dont think itll be worht it, so may just have to buy another since its just the controller i think thats blew not the leds.


but anyway let me know what yall think of the front lighting biggrin.gif

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

They do look very nice. Yes, I know that the HX series is only semi-modular. I guess what I wanted was just an extension for the end that goes into the mobo. And if I went that route, the rest of my cables would need to match (dat OCD rolleyes.gif ). Thanks for the heads-up, though. I could still go with the Corsairs, I'd just need to pick up the AX bundle, leaving me plenty of spare cables for future endeavors tongue.gif

If you really are OCD like me, then I'd definitely recommend picking up an AX-series PSU and then buy the AX-series sleeved cables bundle. This is the best way for your system to look amazing and perfect! This or buying a different fully-modular PSU and sleeve yourself. Also a note before you go on doing something dumb, you CANNOT use the Corsair sleeved bundle on any other PSU brand! The PSU connectors that go into the PSU are only compatible with the appropriate Corsair PSU line. tongue.gif Yea, the HX/TX series are only semi-modular, the 24-pin and 8-pin are the ones not modular on those lines.

Looks very nice even in the dark, I have been following your build log since it was very interesting from the beginning! tongue.gif

Is it possible for you to take brand new photos of the rig?

Thanks! sorry it was all in the dark I didnt think it'd be visible very well with the light on. Yes this weekend I'll try to take pictures of the rig with my actual digital camera and not the GS3 phone camera lol.

I need to read through the thread on here about how to take rig pics first though to make sure they come out semi decent. biggrin.gif

From how I take all my photos, not just for my PC, I use my DLSR with a lighting kit. I also use a pure white environment and if I do use flash, I point my flash upwards and it reflects it from the ceiling having an overcast effect.

I really like the AX line but it's sticking it's head out of my budget by just a smidge. I think I can live with an HX750 for the time. But I agree with you, the AX with full sleeves is a beauty!

Not sure if you have stated this already but if you don't mind getting down and dirty, you could always sleeve the 24-pin and 8-pin on the HX, just take it apart. It is a bit tricky because the first time I sleeved a non-modular PSU, it took me a loooong time, probably 3 weekends. tongue.gif

Right now newegg has the HX and AX for the same price, $149, but even better the Seasonic X 750 is on for $139. Just as good and BitFenix has cables for the X series PSU's also.

I would like some suggestions on what color Corsair sleeved cables for my AX1200.
I am thinking black, my C70 is military green even though the pic makes it look black
which i think was caused by my cameras flash.
so what color would look good? a friend of mine said blue but I think black would be best.
also their on sale at Corsair for 54.99 for the AX series.
or do i even need sleeved cables as the AX psu comes with all black cables anyway and does not
have any colored wires showing. and yes i am replacing those red dvd drive sata cables
