Thanks for the kind words everybody! I'll see if I can get a proper album put together tomorrow when I'm done painting!

Yeah, you can't remove the grey bezel thingy, so I spent a good amount of time taping so there would be as little leakage as possible. I'm pretty satisfied with the results, although I probably missed a few spots. tongue.gif

Ask and you shall receive. wink.gif It may be a little too dark, but I think you can get a pretty good idea of what it looks like. My crappy 5.0 Megapixel point and shoot camera makes the blue look a little purple in this photo, but you can still see the lighting effect it makes.

Speaking of that, Devildog, why don't you upgrade to an 8320/8350? They put the 4100 to absolute shame and don't cost that much.

ah

An 8350 and a new GPU 7970 or soemthing are the last peices to the puzzle unless I try full on W/C. Then I will build an Intel system.

Even the 8350 won't run at 2400. It's just super unlikely. Even with only two sticks. Basically, if you get one, by no means should you expect anything over 2133. If you can manage it, then be pleasantly surprised, because your chip has a well above average IMC in that case.

Hi I'm new here,
Just got my C70 today and transferred over my hardware from my loved, but needed to be replaced, cooler master sniper. Originally what I was going to do was install two closed loop liquid cooling solutions, but I wasn't able to do that because the Sniper I had couldn't mount the radiators the way I wanted to, making it so I couldn't install some 240 mm solution and the Accelero Hybrid. Now that I have a new case I can install the Hybrid where I wanted, which frees up the top for a dual radiator, but I'm thinking about just doing a custom loop. Anyways here are the pics of the finished install, I took them mostly outside since the lighting inside my house was so horrible. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


I removed the bottom hard drive cage for the sake of airflow and instead decided to just hide away my SSD drives.


I'm not using the middle cable management clip because the hole in the tray was perfectly located for the pull fan on the hard drive cage biggrin.gif


Back in my original "dream build" of my computer it had two separate liquid cooling loops, I loved the idea of my cooling being separated from each other and quite literally all the hot air being directly expelled out of the case... I'm not sure where I'm going to end up going with the cooling solution


Just the ugly stock corsair fans. Thinking about some Noiseblocker B12-2s or 3s possibly?






In its new home smile.gif.

This wasn't a new build by any means its sort of just been something I've slowly built, but the build list is as follows for those that are interested, nothing too crazy.

i7-2600k
ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe Gen 3
GTX 670 (probably going to switch this out in a year)
16 G.SKILL Ripjaws X 1600 DDR3
Samsung 840 Pro 120GB C drive
Corsair Force 3 120 GB (for the games I play more often, was originally my old C drive but got replaced on a whim)
500 GB Caviar Black for the rest of my steam library
2 2TB Caviar Greens for everything else.

All of my stuff is running at stock speeds at the moment. I have an overclock profile for my graphics card that is stable but the performance increase didn't make it worth it to run in my opinion, and I wasn't planning on OCing my CPU until it was on liquid. rolleyes.gif

Look good. You have nice & clean build there. thumb.gif If you water cooled the GPU, you should immediately water cooled your CPU. tongue.gif Corsair H100i will be excellent choice. smile.gif

Thank you very much. I know I should, now that I have a case that can accommodate both solutions it's high on my priority list. biggrin.gif
