Corsair 650D Case Mod Log "Powder Coated" - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Wow now that is RED. I am just wondering, are you planing on putting some kind of sticker or vinyl (not sure which is the right word) on the side next to the window? I think it would break up the red panel a little and add some dynamic to it. smile.gif

What's up guys! Had some time to tinker with what is going to go where and got the rads and reservoir mounted up. Had to make a few trips to hardware store as i needed a lot of different bolts and such to get everything to go together.

I had to mount fans like this so i can mount the res to the fans and it was kind of a pain since it's hard to find metric bolts in many different lengths even at home depot so i ended with this set up:

The biggest task was to get the 240 rad to go together with fans and the reservoir. The 2 Delta fans will be pushing air through the radiator out of the case and the res will be mounted to the fans. Once again after long time and many different variations of hardware i ended with this:

I will adjust the height of the reservoir once i receive the pump mod kit. I hope it clears the fittings on the rad but even if it does not this is where my 45 and 90 degree fittings will come in:

Mounting the 360 was not to bad as i've had it there before. The only thing is no the Ultra Kaze's are 38mm instead if my old 25mm fans so it was a really tight fit between the fans and motherboard heat sink.

That's it for now. Not much else i can do until my pump parts get here so i can start routing the tubing and bringing it back to life smile.gif

I am thinking of taking the side door(one with window) to a place with water jet an cut in some design i am thinking either half life theme of rammstein and then adding a black background to it. But i do not yet exactly what design i want so i will hold off on that until i decide.

*** Final Update***

Hello guys this is the final update as i finished the system yesterday after working on it for about 12 hours. Ran into a few problems. There was no way i could connect the tubing with a 38mm at the end of the 360 rad so i ended up using a 25mm fan and put the ultra kaze outside as intake fan which is actually really efficient. Spent long time trying to figure the cleanest possible look so please let me know what you think. Also note that this is only 2nd system i ever built smile.gif and first one was air cooled. Sorry for bad quality pictures but i made a youtube video and there is shows the system much better. I also turned all the fans all the way up so you can hear how loud it can actually. Just dont turn your speakers all the way up cool.gif. The difference in temps is not that big when im running the fans at full speed maybe 6-8 degrees max. I haven't messed with cpu for too long but @ 1.27vcore and 44 multiplier it idles at cool 33 degrees and barely ever hits 60 degree mark at full load. Max temp i had was at 62 after 1 hour of prime. The gpu is running really cool at 33 idle and 45 full load overclocked to 1.2v and max clock speeds in msi afterburner.

Here is a link to the video. It's only about 2 minutes long:

Could not fit a cover and a compression fitting to the pump on top so had to use a barb.

Very nice! I love orange and black cases.

I had my case powder coated Vermilion and the color just makes the black pop.

Ensure you use black pop rivets and screws to keep with the theme.
