Corsair 750D Owners Club - Page 386

post #3851 of 9593
I'm starting to order some more components for my first build and I have some questions regarding the placement for the lower rad I plan to use (Alphacool UT60). For optimal cooling, if it makes any difference, is the rad better placed on the bottom or at the front? I don't plan a push/pull config so I'll have only one set of fans. In case it matters, the upper rad will be the Alphacool XT45 (not push/pull).
My second question is what are really good quality/performing UV LED lights I can get? I haven't really researched too much bit the ones that seem to pop up often are the Bitfenix Alchemy. Any other good ones?

Thanks a ton for all replies and help.

You might get better airflow on the bottom, but you'll want to put dust filters over the vents. I think any type of UV LED will be fine. Have you checked out cold cathodes though? I have found they produce a better UV effect than the LEDs have. But that is just my personal experience.

I have the massive EK 240 XTX (60mm) in the bottom as an exhaust, and a EK 360 XT (45mm) in the top, mostly so I can keep any points of failure away from my HDDS which are mounted under the top drive bay. I also kept the stock 140Ls in the front for filtered intakes, and i have a cheap mesh filter coming for the back as well.

Far as UV lighing goes, Cold cathodes are a complete pain to use and fickle at best., my previous Water-cooled 750D build used them.. The inverters are cheaply built and extremely sensitive, i managed to kill 2 just trying to get them to light, because the power cables were accidentally pre-installed backwards.. Go-figure. Using Cathodes also leads to more cable management just trying to keep everything hidden. :/

My recommendation is for a pair of Logicsys UV LED "corner sticks" i replaced my previous build's cathodes with these LEDS, and the lighting actually looks better imo.. Have a pic. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

You should have no problem mounting them to the side panel, with double sided foam or tape, at the edges nearest to the window, or you can easily mount one to the back corner and another from the top or bottom. As long as you have a couple free molex plugs, (or just one, with a splitter) cable management is a breeze.
I use 2 similar corner sticks in my build and the 8" models are perfect for lighting up the main components, and not drawing attention to the Drive bays.

Hope that helps~

If I have a evga supernova 1000w psu would I be able to squeeze in a 240 radiator in the bottom as well as a front radiator

Thanks 15 and Hobbs for the replies and info. I hear a lot of negatives about the cold tubes are a bit of a pain and not very reliable but I'm sure everyone has different experiences. I didn't even think to check if the case came with air filters for the bottom. Will I have to rig something up myself or is there a filter I can buy meant for the bottom of that case? Also, is there a different front panel that allows for better airflow in case I decide I'd rather have the lower rad at the front?

Thanks again for the replies.

You should easily be able to pick up some cheap 120 or 140mm fan filters for the bottom and you might be able to find some dual filters. As for the front, the 450D has an open/mesh front panel which /might/ fit the 750D but we'll have to get official word from the Corsair guys. Ive also seen people mod the front to install an open mesh. But as far as stock parts go, Im not sure whats available.

for the bottom filter,make sure you get a large piece as the honeycomb mesh is moulded outwards, which makes the it not cover the mesh entirely.

You could get the Demciflex 240 that is specifically made for the 750D.

@hobbs I'm sure it's not for everyone. I just wanted to offer another suggestion. I have 4 of the 12" CCT in my case and you can even see them looking dead-on with the case. I didn't have many issues with the inverters once I sleeved the two cables that go to each separately. Together made them not want to light as bright. Not sure why. I find they gave a more even glow apposed to the spots of the LED, but maybe that is different with the UV LEDs, as I was using blue ones. Good to get different opinions though, nice pictures thumb.gif.

Here is one with my 4 CCTs

Hey everyone,

I just did an install into a 750D last night and was actually pleasantly surprised at how nicely everything went in. I did run into a possible, minor issue though.

Did anyone else have to put a little force on the rear I/O (toward the front of the case) in order to bolt down their graphics card(s)? Mine did for some reason.

Thanks

By front do you mean left side headscratch.gif you might not have been square to the panel if you were screwing in your bolts, which I assume is what you are talking about? Not sure need more info redface.gif
