(gah that's a mouth full) you have to actually offset the radiator don't use the standard holes...



line it up like that and you can get 6 out of 8screws in without drilling. now on my motherboard that actually gave me clearance past the 8pin for the mobo but as I look at it now I gained just down to where the ram sticks out in extra space. So I believe the H105 *WOULD* fit. I *WOULD NOT* go bigger than that. clearance and changing ram would get super hard. if not impossible without removing it.

You'll have to pardon my horrible cellphone pictures I borrowed my moms camera for the occasion and forgot the usb cable to transfer them... -____-



theres about the space I'm working with now on a CLC like the H105 pulling it off and putting it back on is easier than my fully set up loop. so maybe the ram clearance is no big deal to you. in that horrible picture I have an xspc ex 240 rad (35mm thick) and still some space obviously.

Also somebody told me the xspc dual bay d5 res wouldn't fit. He was right so I made it fit. Just drilled some new holes and I like it it sits flush with the front of the 350d now



Finally a couple of crummy body shots *better ones to come but since I made this post I felt i should show her off





You'll notice it isn't Red and Black! You'll also notice that it isn't following a color scheme any more right now... that asrock board is hard to coordinate. plus I blew all my extra money on a 7970 CF with my 7950 smile.gif



SO that pretty much sums up the pictures if your eyes are bleeding at the horribleness please feel free to send me money for a dslr

To summarize. the H105/ a thicker rad will fit what I hope is most boards if you offset the rad using the 140 mount holes as shown in the picture it's not purty but effective.
Also my half watercooled very full crossfired 350d

Hello,

I'm also trying to use the XSPC res but I run into a problems that I didn't managed to resolve.
How did you access the hole to fullfill the res ? Did you let the res open ?

I'm very curious because I don't see how I can resolve this.

Thanks for any advice !

Hey All, just finished my first ever build yesterday! I must say I was inspired by the work ya'll've done on these forums. It's a pretty typical build I think, but I didn't want to branch out into uncharted waters, this being my first time (up until this point I was still rocking an '08 MacBook Pro as my main machine blinksmiley.gif)

Here's a link to most of the parts: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2E1sq





Cable routing was harder than I expected -- may give it another go tomorrow (since it's only using twisty ties for now). I don't know how some of you guys route cables so perfectly o_O



I probably went overkill for a lot of components, but judging by my previous track record of updating computers every 5 years I was okay with that. biggrin.gif

I opted for the silent versions for all the Corsair fans, which I must say turned out to be pretty dang quiet. Haven't tried OCing yet, but the CPU idles around 30-33C and it didn't go beyond ~60C (if memory serves) while trying out Battlefield 4 on ultra for an hour or so.

Let me know what you guys think, or if you have any advice, or if you see anything wrong!! (or if you want more pics... I took plenty lol)

Looks good: And your routing isn't bad at all. But if you think going from an 08 is bad... try an 07. wink.gif

thats tthe filter cloth mounted on top, it works reak and allows awesome airflow. remember that when you install it stretch the cloth to allow air to pass through easier tongue.gif

I've seen so many terrible routing jobs where it looks clean up front and a complete mess at the back with wires hanging everywhere and touching the back of the board. Yours looks like one of the better ones

Hey guys. Ordered all the bits for my very first ever build yesterday. Super excited to get started!! Here are the basics:-

Corsair 350D,
Cosair Ax760,
Intel Core i5 4670k,
Asus Maximus Gene,
Corsair DDR3 1866Mhz Lp (2x4Gb),
EVGA GTX 780 Sc,
Crucial M500 480Gb SSD,
Samsung 1.5Tb HD
Corsair H100i,
Corsair SP120 Quiet x4,
Corsair AF120 Quiet x1,
Corsair AF140 Quiet x2

So i've gone through most of the thread and been picking up a lot of ideas. I'm basically going with a very similar build to a lot of you. Taking out the drive cages, mounting the H100i in the front with a push/pull configuration and having exhausts out the back and top. SSD and HD will go in the 5.25" bays. What I want to do though is have a really clean front. So, with that in mind and with no optical drives going in those bays Is is possible to remove the 5.25" blanks and use a cut down 900D front plate? Or is there another solution you guy know about or can come up with? Thanks for any help and the inspirational builds.

Out of curiosity, why are you getting 4 SP 120s? Doesn't the H100i come with 2 of them already? They don't have the colored ring, but they should be SP120s, so you can just put them in the front where they will never be seen. I would suggest getting two SP120 PWM versions and using those along with the ones the H100i comes with and just using the Fan Xpert software your mobo comes with to control their speeds. They'll be just as quiet as the "quiet" versions, but will also give you more rpms if you want extra cooling.

For the front, I don't believe that the 900D front plate will snap into the 350D. If it's large enough, you could cut it down and affix it with magnets or double-sided tape though. Most likely you'll have to remove the aluminum from the plastic backing. You could also look into getting a piece of aluminum, or acrylic, or whatever you want and cut that to size. I've seen people here use copper.

Thanks for responding to my post. The reason I WAS getting 4x Sp120's was I read that they were quieter that the ones that come with the H100i. I have never do this before so still trying to gets to grips with everything. Have changed my order and going with what you suggested. As for the front panel I've decided just to modify the the one that comes with the case. Thank you for your help.
