[Official] Corsair Vengeance C70 Gaming Case Owner Club - Page 19

post #181 of 7079
new c70 owner, and i'm looking to upgrade the stock fans setup.exhaust 120mm i'll be swapping for an AF120. the two intake 120's mounted just behind the drive cages, i wanted to swap for AF120s as well. however, i was thinking of moving then forward to the front bezel for better airflow, as cpu temps are running high. since the HDD cage interrupts airflow, if i did mount two 120mm fans in front, would SP120s be better suited to this restricted space?

i'll be adding a top exhaust 120, possibly a side 120. Right now, i'm wondering if anyone has advice on whether SP120s or AF120s would be better suited as front fans in front if the HDD cages.

The new corsair fans suck. So don't buy them at all.

If you want attractive fans that are sub 20db and as powerful if not more then try cougar vortex pwm fans which is what I'm using or Coolermaster sickleflow which I'm also using (perform the same but less attractive and cheap.)

The HHD cages ruin airflow and I would reccomend you remove them completely. Run x2 fans in the bezel and store your HHDs in the optical bag slots or behind the case. Then one or two more intake fans at the front from the bottom.

Always get a really strong exhast fan for the back especially if using a air cooler for the CPU and consider bigger 140mm fans for the top exhaust.

SIGN ME UP!!! XD

Loving the case. I managed to fit an H100 with full push pull (haven't taken pics of that yet though) with a bit of squeezing. The watercooling tubing that I wrapped around the h100 tubes looks much better in normal light, but washes to a kind of orange when photographed with flash. I give myself a 6/10 with cables so I'm not gonna take many pictures emphasizing those XD

Count me in thumb.gif

I upgraded from the Corsair 300R, I loved that case but it was a little on the plain side. I plan on upgrading my motherboard soon. I originally bought an Asrock Z77 Extreme4 but it came DoA and the P8Z77-LE was all my local computer store had in stock at the time. In the pictures my heat probes are not set up, so it's just reading mostly ambient.

So I was trying to mod me up an acrylic window because the honeycomb holes were bothering me to no end. It turns out that acrylic is a miserable substance to work with and cracks and splinters if you look at it funny, so I gave up on that and just decided to flip my existing window around so that it would allow better sight of the mobo/business side of the computer as opposed to the hdd cages. It's a pretty simple adjustment (Not worth calling a mod) but here's a picture of the result for me.



I suspect that airflow may have suffered a little, as the push pull over the hdd cages will probably leak out of the window now, but I think it may be worth it.

anyways, just wanted to let people frustrated with the window know that this is at least a partial solution.

I removed my top hard drive cage and moved my SSD's down to my bottom cage. I ran into the issue many are facing when trying to plug in a right angle sata cable. I kinda solved that problem by flipping my SSD's up side down lol.

No I hadn't. Thanks for the link thumb.gif

That's actually exactly what I was doing except my drill bit kept shattering the acrylic. I guess I should have found some lexan instead but my local hardware store didn't have any.
