someone on here the other week used automotive wire harness wrap for their psu cables too hide
all the colors, it is a cloth like wrap that comes in a role like electrical tape. it looked really good in his
system.

yeah it worked out really nice. What I used was Volkswagen or Audi part number 000-979-950 but I'm sure there are alternatives. Maybe even hockey tape. It's a little spendy at around $20 a roll - I happened to have some left-over in my tool box at work. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Hey guys, I'm new to the C70 club, starting my build in the next few days. Finally upgraded from my trusty but cramped Antec 300 Illusion case. I'm going for a blue theme in the gunmetal black case. I've got an Asus Sabertooth 990FX with a Athlon II 965be, 8gb of GSkill mem, all migrating from my old build, and I'm adding in a new AX750 psu with blue braided cables, an h100i, a bunch of blue-ringed Corsair SP and AF fans and an EVGA 660ti 3gb card to finish it off. This will be the third build I do, and I'm really excited to start after going through this thread and seeing all the passion and creativity you guys have put into your builds, its really awesome. I had a couple of quick questions though:
1. Should I mount my AX750 fanside down, if I don't have a ton of clearance above the ground( looking for a piece of furniture to place my case on, but until then it may be set on the floor)? Can it suck in enough air so close to the ground?
2. What hdd cage setup do you guys prefer? Will more cool air hit my gpu if I take out the top cage and let the front intake fan blow over to it or will it do better with the top cage in and a fan on it right next to the gpu? Because it seems airflow is tight through the cage, but of course the fan is much closer when placed on the cage...I figure some of you guys have experimented with this tongue.gif
3. Thinking of an Corsair AF 140 on the bottom of the case, next to the psu, good idea?

Ok, I think that's pretty much it. Thanks in advance guys for any help you can provide!

P.S.
My camera broke recently, but I'll see what I can do to get you guys some pics once I finish.

Question for you guys!

I recently just bought my C70 Vengeance and am using a H80i. My idle temps are average out at about 33 degrees. I have the radiator mounted top back slot with only a pull on the fan. (With my mobo I can't do push/pull, the heatsinks get in the way. MSI MPower Big Bang) I have the other top fan as an exhaust and the back fan as an exhaust. The 2 front and bottom fan are intake. These temps are the same as when I was using a Hyper 212 plus. Am I doing something wrong? Just seems like I should be getting lower idle temps than with air cooled. I know under load my temps are about 10-15 degrees cooler. Any advice?
post #1969 of 8407
the C70 has stands on the bottom so yes mount psu with fan down.
I have the top hdd cage removed and have installed 2 Noctua 120mm fans behind the front cover
and then took a 120mm fan and attached it to the 2 top screw holes on the bottom cage using the 2 bottom
mounting holes of the fan therefore it feeds cool air too my 2 graphics cards. see pic.
bottom fan IMO is no use.

most closed loop liquid coolers provide the same temps at
idle as a air cooler but provide better temps at load.
so no you are doing nothing wrong, but if you can find a way
to make your radiator push pull with 2 fans.
