Should i be buying static pressure fans for the top area? or only maybe one for where the psu is positioned or maybe none at all?

i wont be using a rad btw

also how effective is the h80i compared to a air cpu cooler

You should be buying static pressure fans all around, whenever you're dealing with multiple grills or dust filers they're generally superior.

The H80i is much less effective than most similarly priced air coolers. Its a simple CLC after all, they require more fan speed to get the same performance as an equivalent air cooler and aren't as reliable.

The way I see it, either get a good air cooler, a proper full copper AIO or a custom loop.

Yes there really is no benefit in terms of performance with an AIO over a top end or even mid-range air cooler, other than the aesthetic that it offers. I see people falling for this all the time... there is this major misconception that if it's got water in it, it MUST be better, but that simply isn't the case. Something like the EK Predator 240/360 does stand out however, but it's expensive and doesn't fit in this case. Most other AIO's won't either for that matter... so this case is really only suited to a custom loop or air cooling. If you are worried about aesthetics, check out the Cryorig air coolers... they are some of the best looking around at the moment and perform excellently. Height clearance may be an issue with some though, as the 303 only has 160mm available.

  • The Cryorig H5 Ultimate might just fit with the fan moved all the way down its 160mm tall.
  • The be quiet! Dark rock 3 is exactly 160mm too.
  • The Thermalright Le GRAND MACHO RT is also a pretty good looking cooler imo and it comes in at 159mm.

You'll probably need to use ram with low-profile or no heatsinks with any of these coolers.

Hi everyone,
I just finished putting together a new system with the In Win 303 case.

I really like the tempered glass door design and the otherwise clean lines of the case. I wanted a nice modern look with no wires hanging out the back so I turned the case front side up so that the backside is down. The I built a 7" tall base to set it on.



I covered the new base and the 303 case with wood grain vinyl and made the front base panel removable



I had to remove the feet and the air filter but will make a screen to fit the back of the cabinet.

The In Win logo and USB ports where not all that attractive but they work alright for accent lighting since the top of the cabinet is above my eye level


I used the MSI SLI plus x99 mb
Intel 5820
Silverstone Argon cpu cooler -159mm
an older Radeon R9 290 driving a Crossover 32" 4K monitor
Samsung SSD
EVG 750 watt PS
A couple of Corsair quite fans
16 Gb Skill ram
an older 1Tb HD mounted on back

I am not an over clocker or big gamer so do not need to move a lot of air through the case most times so the limited airflow works alright. ( I did remove the extra PCI slot covers)

Current temps in normal operation with one system fan at 800rpm -cpu: 37c gpu: 52c




I also used the NZXT Hue plus RGB lighting system




The only other thing I might do is come up with some way to hide the I/O ports because they do not look so nice.
This was my first case mod and it was fairly simple. The only real change to the case was to break off the two flanges that held the filter.

Duuuuude. So bummed. Kinda. Where and how do I mount my Water 3.0 in the case...the radiator fits up top next to battery but the water pump is literally a hairs width too chubby to squeeze thru the little rectangular hole up top. I even removed the metal fixture on the pump that the four screws cover when fixing it to the mobo/cpu...don't light my ass up for not having a different cooler cuz I already needa replace it cuz of it's annoying buzzing sound. But I need ideas for the time being. I already tried unscrewing the copper plate but the screws are a flaming ***** to take out and I have tried literally every screwdriver head type possible tonight. Heeeelp me bruthas. Man down.doh.gif

Realized that the glass side panel has visible spacing between it and the front of the case. Negative airflow setups will be affected by this frown.gif
