[Official] Corsair Vengeance C70 Gaming Case Owner Club - Page 840

post #8391 of 8397

I ended up using the 5.25 bays to contain my drives since after the mod I had no use for the 3.5's lol.  But I'm currently rocking a InWin 303, and my CaseLabs M8 is in storage since it was to large to travel this time around.  I still plan on moving to another case before the year is up if I can find a good mATX case for travel, so far the CaseLabs BH4 is on my list (not doing mITX w/ x99).

Ace Hardware, Home Depot or Lowes. I found better selection and pricing at Ace. Good cable management P clips and stuff there too.

Has anyone tried to use the EVGA CLC 280 AIO in this case yet? I noticed its not on the PC Part Picker compatibility list, but the 120 is. I was looking at upgrading to that cooler from my older Corsair H80i, and I've got a friend who also has this case saying he was told it won't work. Thing is, he was also told that almost nothing that isn't corsair will fit, which I know to be total bull, so I'm skeptical, but want to find out for sure before I buy a CPU cooler I can't mount.

My first post and I'll start off by saying I've had my c70 case for a little over a year now and it's fantastic. I bought it on sale for about $57 USD and I only got it because it looked kind of like an ammo can and I thought that was pretty neat. I've been paying attention to this thread and coming here repeatedly for the last year or so checking out what others with this case have done, and I've seen some pretty impressive stuff.

I am in no way any kind of professional when it comes to modding. I'm just a college kid doing this in my spare time in my dorm room.

Okay well I've reached a temporary stopping point in my build since mnpctech.com is and has been out of stock of their "modders mesh" for a few weeks now so I'm going to go ahead and post my progress so far.



overall pic of how it sits right now. Basic specs are:
  • i5-6600k cooled by a Noctua NH-D15
  • EVGA ACX 2.0 GTX 980 cooled by a NZXT Kraken x61 AIO attached with their g12 bracket
  • Asus Z170-E motherboard
  • EVGA 650 Watt Platinum PSU



Another angle. The side panel is a piece of acrylic I cut to size and attached with magnetic strips. It's not really this reflective, the camera just makes look that way. The magnetic strips around the side also kind of disappear in person. They just stick out more in pictures. There is a full seal, around the edges and it's super easy to take on and off but is firmly on there with the magnets. Temps don't change at all whether the side panel is on or off.



Better view of the PSU shroud I made for the case. I made it from acrylic and painted it to match the case. The picture exaggerates the color difference but it really looks almost identical to the case color in person. It's not EXACT but it is pretty damn close. I saw a ton of PSU shrouds other people have made but not really any that include a fan. I put one in to provide a direct supply of cool air from the outside of the case to the gpu.



I made little tiny holes just for the specific connections I'm using to help with cable management.



Getting the front IO connectors through this tiny hole was kind of a pain but worth it. also, the reset switch is wired so that when pressed, it boots directly into the BIOS



Actually had to remove the heat spreader from one of my ram sticks so that the 2nd noctua fan would sit flush with the other one and fit in the case. HyperX Fury was a PIA to remove their heat spreader and I was really scared I had broken it before I put it back in. Everything works great though.



The USB header for the x61 AIO actually wouldn't reach across the graphics card, through the back of the case then down and through the psu shroud so I had to get creative. I cut out one of the small cross beams and ran the cord out the back of the card and through the back of the case. It comes back in at the bottom expansion slot below the psu shroud so everything is hidden and neat.



yes there is a small expansion card above the GPU. Figured I would go ahead and include the picture. It is a 3.0 USB hub with 5 ports. I have it here slightly supporting the massive heatsink and above the gpu, basically out of sight. I put some electrical tape over where the heatsink touches the pcb.



I still have a lot to do, and that includes cutting the fan screws to size so they sit flush with the psu shroud and installing a rubber molding around the fan hole so it looks a bit more professional.

I still have to replace the front grill with some hexagonal mesh, I'm just waiting for MNPC to replenish stock.

Thanks for looking! This case is awesome and I plan on keeping it for a long time. If there's further interest, I'll update once I get the rest of it finished.

Hello,

I have been lurking here for a while, but now it's time to post. I have the C70 for over 2 years now, but recently I have upgraded my CPU cooler to a Corsair H115i.

Now this AIO has a 280mm radiator, thus can only fit at the top or in the bottom. Furthermore, it can only fit in the top properly, if the tubing goes near to the IO panel, although mounting the whole thing the opposite way (tubing near ODD racks) would give a more pleasing result.

The setup now:


I was playing around the radiator and managed to mount it the other way (tubing near the ODD racks), but when I did that, I could only use 4 of 8 screws, because the the metal brace in the ODD rack is in the way of the tubing:


(it maybe can't be seen, but the radiator is not completely level)

On pcpartpicker I found a build by chamberlinak47, where he was able to remove the metal brace in the top ODD slot. Actually it was the slot above the top ODD slot, where the power and reset button sits.

Image of the said metal brace:



The brace is the one highlighted with red, and one of the rivet holding it in place highlighted with green. Two rivets holding the brace in each side.

In his build he removed this metal brace, as can be seen in this image:



What tools need to be used to remove this brace? Also does this impact case stability?

Use a 1/8 drill bit. I removed my entire 5.25 drive bay cage by drilling out all the rivets and that's what I used. Case stability wasn't affected too much. And if you decide you don't like that you took the brace out, you can always rivet it back in with a rivet gun and a couple pop rivets
