[Official] Corsair Vengeance C70 Gaming Case Owner Club - Page 833

post #8321 of 8434
Hi, new here. Here's my build. No build logs available but here's some pictures.

DONE


BLEED


FLUSH


NOTES
*Have to bleed front side down because of the radiators' orientations. The reservoir on my loop isn't really the highest point in the system.
*The hose routed at the back is 3/8 X 5/8 (ID X OD).
*The reservoir/pump combo sits on top of a 120mm CoolStream PE and fan underneath setup as push, intake.
*Reservoir is an XRES140. Holes need to be drilled lower on UNI pump holder to allow the pump/reservoir combo to be mounted lower.
*There's about 5 to 8mm of clearance between the top of the reservoir And the bottom of the drive bays.
*No major modifications to the case other than a plate riveted to external hose routing holes so pass thru fitting can be fitted. Need to cut off ~1" of the rolled metal piece behind HDD cage so the 120mm radiator can fit with no interference.
*Optical drives, SSD and HDDs are in the 5.25 bay.
*Another option for mounting a EKWB D5 reservoir/pump combo is to get a shorter reservoir tube.
*Stock case thumb screws were used with stock grommets to mount the radiator on top. There will be a few millimeters of vertical movement using this method. The radiator is basically "hanging". No vibration, noise, or rattling noticed so far.

Thanks! Hope this would be useful for other C70 owners who want an alternative to bay reservoir/pump setup which seems to be most common choice for this case.

hey guys! I posted my build on a previous page in this thread but a lot has changed to my build since then.


Things that have changed:

Hardware:
-gtx980
-sabertooth z87 motherboard which is spray painted UV green
Customization:
-painted the trim on the side and the front panel with UV green
-installed a helix reservoir and a flow indicator
-built the flow indicator with 2 fittings, some rubber grommets, a bracket for the 3.5" slot

This was a long time coming and I hope you guys appreciate my new additions!
