Not sure if this will help any, but I removed the SSD cage and mounted one of my SSDs with velcro right under the 5.25 bays (where the SSD bay used to be)... Holds well and doesn't take up nearly the same amount of space as the SSD cage.

im sure that both of you already know this but... the 2.5 in hdd cage can be taken apart so that it takes up less space its a 4 piece system, it took a screw driver to take it apart tho T_T

Code:

hey everyone.... made quite a few changes since I last posted here, just would like to share them... and Ive actually got a few more drastic changes coming as well, just waiting for stock on a few products to renew on frozencpu smile.gif

To my huge suprise, I had no idea that Koolance is actually headquartered at about a 15 minute drive away from my home in Auburn, WA. I was stunned when I realized it, and quite delighted as well! So i grabbed some products from them, and also made a storage upgrade.

heres the exact changes ive made:

Cooling:

-Change in waterblock, from Swiftech Apogee Drive II to Koolance CPU-380i
-Change in reservoir from Swiftech Micro Res to Koolance single bay, 401-X2 res
-Changed tubing from 3/8 ID 5/8 OD to 1/2 I/D 5/8 OD
-Outfitted all connections with Koolance compression fittings, and added a shut-off valve near pump outing
-Added 240mm Swiftech Radiator to front end of chassis
-Gave actual liquid coolant a try (from Koolance of course), after using Distilled water with biocide
-Added a second MCP35X Swiftech pump for bi-turbo serial setup integrated into bay reservoir

Other upgrades:

-Added a silverstone 5.25 inch slot loading bay cover, with space for 4 2.5 inch HDD/SSDs
-Added slim slot loading Panasonic Blu Ray reader/writer
-Added second Samsung EVO SSD 250gb
-Swapped out 1TB Western Digital 3.5 inch HDD for 2x 500gb Western Digital 2.5 inch HDDs
-Established two RAID0 volumes for each pair of drives and re-installed Windows 8.1 onto SSD's
-Upgraded memory to 4x4 for 16gb total of 1866mhz Corsair Dominator Platinum modules

Hi guys,

I've been a long-time lurker around here, but decided to post up some pics of my 350d as I finished building it recently.





Just casually hiding my HD in a 5.25" bay



Obligatory LED shot



Full body



Rear view




Any criticism guys? smile.gif

@Nichismo

Nice pics..Interesting color choice..Red led with the green tubing actually looks good..
It would look better IMHO,in all green or all red though,and with a bit more cable management it's going to look a lot cleaner!!!!Nevertheless nice job biggrin.gif




@luposolace

I like it!!I'm a sucker for blue themed rigs anyway... thumb.gif

lol I do agree with that about the colors... However, the tubing is actually clear tubing, and im using green coolant. When I bought the coolant at the time, they only had green, clear, and blue, and seeing how I currently am using a Razer Black Widow keyboard and Razer Taipen mouse which both have green lighting, I figured id go with the green. Hopefully I can get some red ASAP wink.gif

The cable management sucks! it was such a pain to try and organize these factory cables, they produce so much torque. Ive been trying to find modular cables, but im having a little trouble finding the real nice sleeved cables that i see so often in the very high class builds... Id love to get a pack of those!

Tell me about it..I'm using sleeved extensions and they're a drag in cable management behind the mobo!!!!My Right side pane barely closes biggrin.gif
Hey,since you have a Corsair PSU have you tried their site?
http://www.corsair.com/us/power-supply-units/psu-accessories-1.html?p=2
I'm using BitFenix extensions,that,IMO are the best in the market..
But if you want custom extensions you can try here:
http://arkangelmp.bigcartel.com/product/sleeved-extension-pci-e-6-2-pins
and here:
http://lutro0-customs.com/
They're both memebers of OCN and have great things for modding in general thumb.gif
If you're interested in a more economical solution you can always try here too:
http://www.moddiy.com/categories/Cables/PSU-Cables/Premium-Modular-Cables-Set/
I was on the lookout for a full set , but I'm kinda in the low on cash right now,and I prefer to buy a camera for now.. tongue.gif
