post #1371 of 10491
I started to build my XB today and discovered the "C" hole in the mobo tray is too big and not threaded to hold a stand off. Kind of annoyed as my Switch 810 is torn down and now I'm stuck until I get a new mobo tray. What's the best way to contact CM customer service?

Note:

Don't forget that CM intended the (optional) 140mm fans to be installed on the inside only. If you want to mount them on the outside? you may have to trim sections of the plastic front panel in order for it to fit properly.

Yeah I saw that. Figured mounting them on the inside would provide a cleaner look anyway, considering Noctua's color choices on their fans is striking to say the least heh.

Uh, quality PSU's will have no problem powering multiple HDD's on a single 12v molex rail line, LOTS of people do it all the time.

What about with a fan controller and the nzxt hue. I just figured its not riveted in so might as well lose it.

I ordered 2 140mm Noctua fans to replace the front 120mm and also ordered a 120mm Noctua for the rear. Got the 200mm fan also. I was thinking about having the front and rear fans all being intake and having the top 200mm fan as an exhaust fan. My theory behind this is that heat rises. I run crossfire 7970's (both coolers are not reference design so heat is expelled back into the case), So I was thinking if I had the 200mm fan as an intake it would just push the heat from the video cards directly onto the motherboards creating a hot spot. Where as if I had the 2 140mm front fans as intake they could push air onto the video cards which could then be expelled via the top 200mm fan as exhaust. Having the rear 120mm fan as intake allows fresh cold air to go directly onto the cpu heatsink. Currently I'm using the stock intel heatsink but I do have a Corsair H50 lying around not being used. If I used that I think it would be best to setup the rear fan as an exhaust fan with the radiator from the H50 attached to it. Thoughts?

This is how I had my rig set up before I swapped out my H50 for a Custom Loop. The H50 did the job well, but I needed a larger heatsink to deal with overclock temps, and I was also worried about having to have the H50 rad mounted sideways (chance of dry running the pump if the fluid in the rad ever ran low).

Thanks! I've got one last thing to do to the case to finish off this rig. I need a rotary tool however and I've been waiting for them to go on sale. I checked Canadian Tire today and the kit I want just went on sale. Hopefully later this week I will have some time to work on it and finally finish this thing off!

If you think it looks spooky now wait until I'm done! thumb.gif
