Corsair 350D Owners Club - Page 356

post #3551 of 5046
Ordered one of these guys up! Can not wait for it to come in. Going to be swapping most of my watercooling components from my current pc (HAF X) because its just wayyy too big. Plus I'll be upgrading from an FX 8150 to a 4790K. So yeah bit of a performance margin, in a much much smaller form factor. thumb.gif

Ill keep everyone posted

Plus I think that it'll look a lot of cleaner that way.. thumb.gif
I don't know if it is visible in my rig sig pics , but I really cannot use an adapter like yours ,because my second 5,25 bay is occupied by a fan controller and I really need the optical drive , as I said in my OP and I don't really want to have to use a USB one when I can have everything in my rig,you know?!?
How could I put it in front of the PSU?Velcro?I 'd feel better if I knew that the HDD was screwed in something,because unlike the SSDs,it has moving parts in it..

Yeah, good call. I wouldn't advise using velcro for a 3.5 HD. The SSD is entirely plastic and no moving parts so they can be mounted almost anywhere. Here is a picture of another 350D owner who had his 3.5 inch drive mounted in front of the PSU.




It looks like he used a bracket similar to the one I used, but screwed it into the bottom of the case. That bracket is soft (aluminum) and very easy to drill and tap. The hardest part is marking the holes in the bottom of the case, best to use a template. The reason I really like this case is it's compact size, it is a challenge to do any custom outfitting, especially water cooling. I am finishing up a custom loop for my two 770s and it has been fun trying to get it all to fit and function. Engineering is the art of intelligent compromise though!

Wow,that is a great lookin' build!!!The Swiftech H220X is gorgeous!
I'll keep it in mind,man thanks again thumb.gif
Though I think I'm going to avoid drilling the case...until I try to watercool it in the future I guess biggrin.gif

Yeah,watercooling in the 350D can be challenging but the results are beautiful looking rigs,indeed!!
Good luck with your setup,post a picture or two when you're finished

Absolutely! I just got the water block, SLI connector tube, and a few swivel fittings for my bottom card today. Don't think I'll have time to empty the loop and install everything tonight, but def over the next few days. I am eager to see how it turns out with only a 240mm rad cooling both cards. Then I'll decide whether to swap the H100 for the H220X and make it one continuos loop with two pumps. But one step at a time. Water cooling is fun, but can get expensive fast.

yeah the HAFX has a good for the custom loop so you could go for that.

Hey all, as you could see from my previous post I recently had purchased this case. Going from the HAFX to this will be a slight challenge mainly because the watercooling components that I had chosen for the coolermaster are significantly larger. (e.g. 360x60mm rad, xspc 750 dual bay res/pump, etc.) I had ordered an internal res/pump combo (alphacool lighttower/ddc-12 400) as well as two new rads to cool my 4790k, looped up with my 7970 DCIITop (R9 280x matrix bios flash) these rads are both the black ice x-flow GT stealth series. One being a dual 120 or 240x30mm, and the other being a single 120x30mm. My plan is to mount the single 120 up front, not in the back mainly due to asthetics. I will be removing the 2.5" drive bay up top, and using a 3.5 to dual 2.5" converter to suit my hard drive needs. If somebody could please run a quick measurement for me of the space between the optical drive cage and the lower HDD cage, that would be super helpful so that I can have peace of mind that no modifications will need to be done to house the 120 rad. I can repay you in +rep!

this is the link to the single 120mm radiator for dimension purposes.

The H220X is really good looking! Is it really noisy? I my build is very quiet at idle and I want to start overclocking my 4690K, but don't want it to be noisy. The CPU idles below 30C which I think is amazing with the stock cooler. I currently have Quiet Edition intakes and exhaust.

EDIT: Oops looks like thats not your H220X

Yeah, but that is my inspiration and a good example showing it fits. I have an EK 2.2 X-Res pump and it is damn near silent. Although it is not really strong enough to push an entire loop, it does just fine in my SLI only loop. I want to add the H220x to include the CPU and improve water flow a bit.

I just finished the loop and temps are quite good for 2 GTX 770s and a single 240mm rad (push pull). They idle at 28C and in Furmark were both around 54-56C. A hair higher than when I only had the top card under water (46C). There are still some air bubbles in the system though. I'll post pics this afternoon. It has been lots of fun designing this loop, although pricey.

With the HD bay it is 7.875 inches (200mm) between the two. Without the HD bay it is 11.5 inches (292mm) tall.

You have around 4 inches (100mm) of space between the front grill and longer GPUs, so you can fit a 54mm rad easily with another fan for push pull in the front. I used a 240mm x 45mm thick rad + SP120s in the front and I still have an inch or so of clearance between the GPUs. Hope this helps!
