I finally ordered and installed my Mnpctech case window, the GPU Support bracket, and a etched-style window decal from Bill Owens and the rest of the gang.

I also recently added a front DemciFlex case filter and 2 pairs of Corsair SP120 PWM Performance Edition fans - 1 set pulling in through the front and the other from the bottom. The 4 new fans are not noticeably louder than just having 2 stock case fans before - in fact I think the pitch of the fan noise is slightly deeper which is more pleasant to my ear.

Some time ago I had doubled the system memory to 32GB of Corsair Vengeance. Still running the "Simple" MSI OC of 4.4GHz and about to make the leap to Windows 10 Pro 64-bit on the Samsung 950 Pro SSD OS drive. Will set up a RAM drive as soon as I finish that.

Down the road I'd like to fabricate a simple sheet-metal exhaust scoop that bolts onto the top of the case using the 140mm fan mounts. Have it pointing towards the rear so that the ambient air rises up and out the very back of the case. I think this would allow even less sound to escape out of the top of the case and quiet it down just a bit more. I have some black FlexiDip paint that I might try out to see how well it matches.

Technically, I'm still OK with my Devil's Canyon 4790K, MSI Z97 Gaming 7, MSI GTX 970 mainly because using the Samsung 950 Pro as an OS and Gaming drive really speeds things up. Later I'd like to add a 2nd 950 Pro but in the M.2 format and bump the video card up to the best price-to-performance card from Nvidia's upcoming Pascal series. Mainly to get more Video RAM...

My AOC 27" 144MHz monitor is fine for now, even though it is 1080p - partly because I'm blind as a bat anyways!

Will want to leap into Oculus Rift at some point, of course.

Still loving my (2nd) Corsair C70 Vengeance case, (2nd) K60 Vengeance keyboard, original M60 Vengeance mouse, 32GB of Vengeance DDR3 RAM (had Dominator triple-channel in my old X58 mobo), (2nd) H80i CPU cooler, and RM650 PSU. I've also had a H60 CPU cooler and a HX1050 PSU in one of my previous builds. The last 3 builds I did I used either all-new Corsair parts or carried them over from a previous build. I've had zero issues other than the very first shipment of K60 keyboards had the letters wearing off a little quickly so they sent me a replacement keyboard as soon as they changed vendors. They even let me keep the old keyboard! I use it at work sometimes to intimidate coworkers.............. biggrin.gif

You guys keep modding...............

And thanks to Bill O., love the GPU support bracket - got my gtx970 perfect - even used a bubble level to check it.[/quote]

Your C70 Rig is lookin good dude!!
post #8385 of 8391
Thanks Bill!

Still lovin' it, runnin' like a charm.

My pic quality was horse-puckey, tho'...

Not like that poster you sent me!!

On the rare days it gets cold in Austin (hottest March on record) I bust out the MNPCTech sweatshirt and wear it to my IT job at the VA.

Got the loop installed. Just putting the finishing touches on her now.
post #8387 of 8391
I'm thinking to replace the C70 with the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M. It will be a nice movement ? rolleyes.gif
post #8388 of 8391
We all eventually grow out of the c70. Still would like to see a smaller form factor version with an acrylic/tempered side panel

Twas a good case. Still have mine but will change it eventually. Still, all the little details that make this case feel like a military PC was and still is badass.

Yup. And remove the 3.5" mounts. I'd love to see a matx/itx C70. The closest small case i found smilar to the C70 is the Silverstone TJ08-E
