[Official] Corsair Vengeance C70 Gaming Case Owner Club - Page 85

post #841 of 7385
Picked up a NZXT Kraken x60 to replace my H100, I got it for a great price from someone local who does reviews. Dropped my temps 3c and that's with the fans @ 1000RPM, can barely hear them. 5 months of ownership and still loving the C70. thumb.gif

Actually you can fitted E-ATX board in C70 casing.

Glad to see these are seeing the light of day, or at least the blue glow of night. 280mm cooler must have been made for this amazing case, you're a lucky guy.

I found this article really interesting. They use a C70 and replace the stock fans with SP120 and AF120 and compare results stock vs quiet vs performance. I've two SP120 performance fans for the front and two AF140 quiet fans for the top along with a rehosmart6 on my amazon.com wish list to control fans and a roll of white LED ribbon.

thanks for this! along with their review of the h100i, i've got a pretty good idea of what i'm looking for when i get some money again.. this build + christmas kinda killed my wallet lol

I bought the green because it looked fitting for the case. Also, I don't think it'll interfere with my other color scheme.


soo some of these?

my mobo is an ASUS P8Z77-V Pro, so lots of blue (which happens to be my favourite colour lol).. if Corsair made the c70 in a blue, i'd probably get it in a heartbeat wink.gif
