[Official] Corsair Vengeance C70 Gaming Case Owner Club - Page 248

post #2471 of 8408
My artic white c70 just arrived, so thats a start smile.gif
Before I make my final purchases, can you share your thoughts on this configuration for my rig?
CPU: [Waiting for Haswell]
Mobo: [Waiting for Haswell]
RAM: Patriot IntelExtremeMasters DDR3 16GB
PSU: Corsair AX760i
GPU: Sapphire Vapor-X HD7950 3GB
Sound Card: Creative Recon 3D 5.1
SSD: 128GB OCZ Vector
HDD: WD "Black" 1TB
Optical Drive: ASUS blu-ray OEM one [not too big a deal]

Cooling: Roof of case - Corsair H100i PushPull config. w/ the default fans and 2x pressure optomised corsair ones (SF?AF?)
Rear of case [ditching the case fan there] - BeQuiet! SilentWings2 PWM 120mm [can someone confirm the max size for that mount?]
Front - each of the 4 fan sites around the cages will have a 140mm version of the BeQuiet! fans [again can someone confirm the mount sizes]
Side window - 2x 140mm BeQuiet! PWM fans
Bottom - I'm thinking of just sticking one of the default case fans down there, its not really the biggest airflow oppertunity anyway
Lighting: either a NZXT hue or [thoughts on what would look better] 1 or 2 bitfenix blue or white alchemy strips [if 1 then on bottom, if 2 then top and bottom]
Cables: if I can find a retailer then the bitfenix dual color [blue/black] mulit-sleeved ones, if not then corsair white or blue ones
Misc. : I'm considering installing a NZXT bunker peripheral security drive for my LAN parties, BitFenix Recon fan controller, and maybe some noise dampening foam if that would be a good idea
OS: Windows 7 lol

Cheers guys,
-Brendan

My case should be here Friday or Saturday and I'm not really looking forward into making my own window.

I will be doing a second round of windows if I get a few more people interested. smile.gif

PM sebar. He has offered to do them for us.

Do the Sidewindows sebar offer include mounting holes? I've got a bleeding scratch on my tinted one and would be interested in a clear one with 140mm mounts.

You can only fit 1x 140mm in the front or 2x 120mm. Also the cages do not fit 140mm fans nor does the rear! They are 120mm only.

I went for Cougar Fans, They are hard to find but well worth the money IMO. The sound they make is much lower than other fans its more of the sound of the amount of air they are pushing instead of a high pitched whine from most fans.

I would consider getting the 860i in case you go for SLi in the future, It's only like £20 more then the 760i.

cheers mate, I'll just order 120mm BQ! fans instead of the 140mm ones for the front of the case, and yeah if its only an extra 20 quid then a PSU upgrade might be a good idea. Any other things that you would consider changing/editing?

I'd forget the bunker, I did like the idea of it and just read a review -http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2379215,00.asp

It's basically tat. Alot of USB drives wont even fit with the door shut etc have a read of the review. Looks good but meh..

I'd get a 3Tb drive instead of a 1Tb. You can pick up 3Tb drives for about £90 these days and that extra storage in one bay is better than adding more later imo.

But thats my personal view. Memory seems fine although not familiar with that specific set. GPU is good, I'm more of a Nvidia guy due to Physx and Cuda but yeah there's like hardly any difference apart from that.

The NXT or BitFenix kits for lighting look good. I was considering them myself until I decided to go all in on Corsair kit.

By the way if you have a early H100i model with 3-pin fans you can get a Free Set of PWM fans. I only found this out recently myself. The stock fans which are 3 pin have a slight whine but Corsair will send you some PWM fans out free of charge!

Sorry man, I am on doing solid windows ATM. It probably would not be to hard to add a hole. You will just need a 5.5 inch hole saw and 1/4 drill bit.

Forgot to mention another benefit of getting the AX860i over the 760i is the fact that they run passive until around 30% load. That extra headroom means my rig is passive all the time! If I had the 760i the fan would probably be starting to kick in. I think it's at around 260watts when the fan kicks in on the 860i so there is that benefit as well!

Well worth it IMO. Best PSU I've ever owned and Corsair's after sales support is outstanding.

Ah nevermind. I'm useless with anything like that! hahaha, I'll just have to leave it then I'm afraid pal. Unless anyone knows someone who offers clear side panels for the C70 but with mounting holes?
