[TPU] Corsair Obsidian 350D M-ATX Chassis Pictured - Page 82

Maybe you can get a 120mm filter and reverse the back fan to intake? Then your H100i gets the cool air from the outside. Not sure if a blower type GPU will affect it though.

So if i want to go for Positive pressure inside the 350d, but im using an h100i CPU cooler. Is it possible? I mount 2 140's in the front pannel, but other than that i would have 2 120's up top pushing via the h100i and the 120 exhaust fan in the back; 2 140's Vs. 3 120's... Any suggestions/ideas?
I was planning on doing 2x 140mm intake on the front, 2x 120mm pull exhaust on top, and 120 intake in the rear.
That however would require some sort of a filter for the intake on the back.

Here's some quick pics of my build. Finally finished it! I went for a green theme cause I like green, it matches my Headset (Razer Kraken Pro), and I don't see a lot of green builds (mostly Red then white or blue).



I painted the rings that came with the SP120s and AF120 to match the build. The power supply doesn't match which is a bummer but I got it for a good price and it doesn't throw the case off that much. If It becomes a problem I can always just sleeve the front part of it in black.

I think that I did okay with cable management. My PSU isn't modular so it was a pain but after a couple hours I got everything tucked away. I didn't take any pictures though :/
the only wires that bug me are the SATA cable that I can probably tuck away, the fan cable at the bottom right of the case, and all the wires that came with the H100i. I really like the H100is LED though. I couldn't get any good pictures of it but I set it to glow green.

Before I had the SP120 Quite editions on the H100i I had the stock and I was amazed at the switch. When I first started up the system with the new SP120 quite editions I thought they were broken cause I couldn't hear them! Even at Max I cant hear them that much. The loudest part of my system would be the GTX 670 FTW. I cant hear it with my headphones on but when I take them off its super loud XD

For specs:
Intel i5-3570k (no overclock... yet)
EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2gb
Corsair Vengence 8gb DDR3 1600mhz
Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3
Corsair H100i Water Cooler
Windows 7 Home Edition (Cause screw Windows 8)
Thermaltake TR2 TR-700 700w PSU
Corsair AF120 Fan (x1) & Corsair SP120 PWM Fan (x2) the stock

So far I am loving the case (I have the windowed... just realized I didn't take any wideshot pictures....) but one thing that annoys me is that my headset doesn't work with the front panel ports frown.gif
Maybe its my motherboard but I just ended up using the audio parts in the back I/O panel which work just as well I guess.

I kinda wrote a lot but I guess that's just because I am proud of my first build XD I love the pictures of other peoples builds and I cant wait to see what others do with the case as well!

That's a damn nice first build Gutsy!

Are the stock H100i fans really that bad? My budget just keeps expanding :S

They aren't that bad, I just didn't know how quite it could be with the quite edition SP120s tongue.gif

But even if I kept the stock fans on it wouldn't matter cause my Graphics Card fan would over power them :/
The 670 FTW fan is pretty loud but its the only loud part of my computer and with headphones on I don't notice it.

You might want to check out the 650d thread. There's been a bunch of builds using the options below.

Option 1
Front 2x140mm intake
Top 2x120mm exhaust
Back 1x120mm intake
Con - Back intake may pull hot GPU air back in for cooling CPU.

Option 2
Front 2x140mm intake
Top 2x120mm intake
Back 1x120mm exhaust
Con - may get whistling noise out back. Need top filter. 140mm will need to be powerful to help drive air to the back.

As a side note - finished building with the parts I had on hand. Will probably upgrade sometime over the next year. Spent all last night getting the software I want on it and copying over files from my laptop.

Nice looking build there - you are right, not a lot of Green Builds out there, so it is nice and refreshing. smile.gif

I think the green looks nice.
Hows the audio sound? You have any flac?

The audios in games is great but there is always a constant fuzzy/static sound. Its not very loud and when watching a movie or playing a game you cant hear it but once it gets quite you can :/ kind of annoying.

The stock H100i fans are the equivalent of corsair sp120 performance edition but without the colored plastic ring, so they are good fans!
The only downside of these fans is that they are loud at max speed, but you can set the speed profile to silent with the corsair link software.
If you want approximately the same cooling performance as stock fans and also want silence you will need to do push-pull with SP120 quiet.... that's what I'm doing biggrin.gif
