[Official] Corsair Vengeance C70 Gaming Case Owner Club - Page 24

post #231 of 8397
Well got the parts installed along with my new H100 - due to the none-modular PSU, the cabling is not perfect - this needs to get sorted at some point.

Next upgrade will likely be a 660 ti card or maybe 2 - if 2, then I will need a new mobo - suggestions to this would be greatly appreciated.

Take ou the lower HHD bay and throw those items in your optical bays and mount fans for intake at the front for air flow. You can seriously increase your air flow and drop temps by removing those HDD cages.

Sabertooth or Formula motherboard.

I just got my case in today, I will upload some pics next week after the rest of my parts are in. I'm a new member here, and reading through this thread helped me decide to go with this case. it is quite a bit bigger then my previous case. I am really liking it so far.

Thanks for the suggestion - currently there are 3 HDDs and one SSD in there - but maybe if I install the SSD some other way, then I could remove one of the cages. There is 1 fan in front of each of the cages, so would the bottom or the top of those cages be the ideal one to remove for the sake of the GFX temp?

Looking good. I have the same Blu-ray drive. I like the look of that fan controller - what brand is that?
