[Official] Corsair Vengeance C70 Gaming Case Owner Club - Page 589

post #5881 of 8430
So I must admit, getting this case I knew it was going to be what I wanted but I am pretty blown away for what I paid @ microcenter ($109.99). I really only went with this case because it has a option to easily get a full sized window in without fan holes. I know the 350d/750d could do this, but the 750d was slightly to big for me and the 350d was not going to work in terms of size. I wanted to retain use of my soundcard and no matx board fits a soundcard and full sized gpu w/ dual slot cooler.

I am no corsair fanboy, I really only went with this case because the fractal designs window was too small, most of CM's cases have cheap paint and the windows are low quality and the list can go on.. I almost went with a haf XB, then another switch 810.. I swapped in my head 100x what case I would get and my only big criteria was I've had corsair products die on me, including at the time a $120 psu and $100 kit of ram AS well as my h100 having a dead fan controller and 1 dead fan. SO I wasn't expecting much from this case... when people on reviews say corsair cases are easy to built in I thought.. meh so is every case I've owned..

But realistically looking around at this c70 its great, the proper use of the behind the motherboard tray is astonishing.. its about as wide as my switch 810 with more space for cables, including those nifty cable straps. The paint finish beats both cooler master cases I had, its much more even and seems more durable. The grommets are not low quality like NZXT's which eventually mix with dust in the air and whenever you touch them your fingers to route your cables my fingers turned black. Even the replacement grommets from nzxt did this too.. right out of the packaging.

With that being said I really like this case, the only gripe I think anyone could make is that you need to remove both panels to take off the front panel to access the dust filter to clean it.

Can I move the drive cage mounting thing over or does it only fit in that one spot it comes stock? I know with the 350d/750d I think you can move it.. I could probably drill my own holes if not.

It truly is a very good case. I don't remove the dust filter often, in fact I have only removed it once since I have been using this case. I just run a bristled attachment from my vacuum and vacuum the font . As for the drive cage I don,t think it was intended to be moved from the factory location but I would not be hard to move it. thumb.gif

Thats what I was thinking, ideally I think its probably best to just mount up everything the way I saw you did on your build log (I think it was another forum) with how your res/pump is mounted to the cage and the a bottom mounted 240 rad.

Hah i do the same.. My case is shoved in between my desk n tv stand. I just vacuum the front panel n get almost all the dust. I've got so many wires cramped up top if i did the right panel it would pop out

I'm getting giddy just typing this, but I will finally be watercooling my C70 this weekend. I just picked up 2 x EK waterblocked unlocked 7970's and will be using an XSPC Raystorm to cool the 3770K.

Quick question guys,

Do high density radiators like XSPC EX series with high speed fans outperform the low desnity rads like the RX with low speed fans?

The question I ask is I am undecided on whether I want to use 2 x RX 360 rads or 2 x EX rads. I want the best performance I can get. Noise isn't an issue.

I clean the bottom and front filters regularly. I also take the whole PC apart and clean everything every 4 or 5 months. I hate dust and and stuff inside my rig. Besides, every time I take it apart I find better ways to route the cables for a cleaner look. Much fun for me.

I have a bit of a dilemma. I am looking to replace the side window with one piece of Optix Acrylic. Does anyone know of a way to secure the window to the frame? I was going to use some type of velcro and attach it to the border of the case, but the velcro I can find is too thick, protruding the acrylic out too far from the case.

I was thinking of cutting the side panel to the border where the panel is flat, leaving the hinges in tact also.

Here is a picture of a prototype piece I was using. It's a little on the thick side at .080", but not horrible. If I add double sided tape or velcro it will stick out further than it already does.



I used the acrylic for my Prodigy side panel and it sits flush. I'm using vinyl tape to secure it for now until I can find some kind of replacement.




Just take the latch off the original one like I did.

How did you attach the latches to the Acrylic? What did you do about the bottom of the acrylic protruding out due to the force from the top?

I attached with http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6d/Blindnieten.JPG <---- That! At the bottom i had to do a little trick, force the little metal part that is coming from the case to go down towards inside of the case and on the window I had to add a little piece of acrylic to the bottom so it can hold the window when you put pressure from the top.

I have no clue what those metallic rods are or how they were used to attach the latches. biggrin.gif Pictures would be a godsend. biggrin.gif
