[Official] Corsair Vengeance C70 Gaming Case Owner Club - Page 266

post #2651 of 8408
New owner here! While I've built many systems before, I've only ever done it for functionality. So this time around I decide to out together a system with a bit more looks and style.

Spent a long while deciding on a new case to upgrade my old Coolermaster ATC-201. Originally had my heart set on the 600t, but the more I looked at the C70 in Arctic white, the more it grew on me. IN the end I couldn't resist and saved myself money in the process! Not to mention I have plans for watercooling, and this case seemed a little better in that respect.

So, here is a few pics of everything transferred over!








Obviously needs some work yet, but gives me a nice base to expand. Have plans to:

Braid the PSU cables in either White or Blue paracord. (Can't decide what colour would look better...)
Replace the Window with clear acrylic
Watercooling - Nice Tube, possibly blue dye and white tubing

The only downside is this seems to be an expensive hobby! smile.gif Deciding where to spend the money next is eating me up... originally was going to jump into watercooling but I had it suggested that the 550w PSU might not cut it. It's done me fine so far, but I am considering either a second 7870 or a top end single card down the line...
Plus, if I'm going to braid the PSU perhaps I should upgrade to a higher wattage and future proof first, rather than spending time to braid this and upgrade do the line and have to re do the braiding? Undecided....

Either way, I'm enjoying this! Love some of the builds on here, some great inspiration.

i was thinking to take the upper cage and put it beside the lower cage

Space there is. But how would you mount it? It's not a standard feature so you would have to "hack" it. Pardon the pun lol

Cracking Fans. Go for it! You simply won't regret them.

EDIT

Just seen the price. $9.99 :O

That's dead cheap. Buy them now! I paid £14.99 for each of mine. They are harder to find in the UK. Ended up spending around £120 on the case fans lol. About 10% of the budget gone on fans alone lol.

Ya I thought that price was pretty good, cheaper than anywhere else right now. Now the question is whether to get 2 or 4 for push/pull...

You might be able to screw them together using the fan mounting holes on the cages and long fan screws, but there would be nothing supporting it from underneath. The screws might be enough though since the cage is supported by thumbscrews attached to the motherboard tray.

You could probably find some thick rubber pads at your local hardware store and mount the cage on the rubber, securing it to the bottom with screws. This is just a thought and would probably require a little more planning but I think it would work.

Get 2 for the front. 1 for the rear. I have another on the back of the HD cage. So 4 120mm PWM Cougar's in total. I then purchased 4 of the 140mm Cougars for bottom and side window.

The H100i has the 2 stock fans for the moment. You could get 4 more 120's for this and try a push pull. My motherboard a Gigabyte UP5 TH has large heatsinks on the VRM's near the CPU and prevents a push / pull unless I mounted the H100i out of position. I've seen other people do it. But I've always been hesitant in that regard.

So if you have the dollar, I'd get 4 120's and possibly 4 140mm like I did, depending on your requirements eg side window. Alot of people are going for clear windows with no fan mounts for example.

Possibly get 2 more 120's for the H100i to replace the stock fans?

At that price it's worth stocking up imo

I'd just get a new psu. The 550w is enough right now but just for the sake of keeping it clean. That cpu power connector hanging over front looks terrible! Does it not reach from the back?

Keep it up though, its looking good

Push/pull setup might lower the temperature a couple degrees. Not a lot but even only a couple degrees it still worth it for me. Depend on the motherboard, it will tight fit. I think you can get away with slim fans (120x120x20mm fans). Standard fans are 120x120x25mm. The stock fans specs are 2700 RPM & 77 CFM. I think you can pair it with Yate Loon DC fan D12BH-12C (120x120x20, 2200 RPM, 75.9 CFM). The stock fans use for push while the Yate Loon for pull.

That actually good fans. I like it. Kinda hard to get one of these fans. I got Corsair SP120 High Performance fans from PPC instead because the Cougar Vortex PWM fans out-of-stock at Sidewinder. Now PPC is selling Cougar Vortex PWM fans too.
