Crystal Crystal Series 460X/570X RGB Owners Club - Page 15

post #141 of 197
I bought male to female jumper cables usually used for Raspberry Pi gpio pins. I plan to notch my PSU shroud to allow the wires to come up that way. Then I'll make an endplate for the psu shroud.

Have they reduced the spring tension for the SSD mounts on the backside of the tray?

i didn't notice a spring on mine at all, just a plastic clip and they worked great. (460)

I've already modified my HDD trays, but I went ahead and measured them in their stock position and it looks like it's about 4mm at most, it's a very close fit.

I have to say, as much as I love this case, the stock design for HDD and SSD mounting is kinda poop. Coming from a Fractal Design Define R5 and their beautiful metal trays with sound dampening mounting, the Corsair mounts just feel cheep. Also, backward HDD mounting for no reason at all is silly. Okay, I know why they did it, but there were other ways to work around the problem.

I just looked at the water block you mentioned, no way that could fit without relocating the HDD somewhere else in the case.

Thanks for the info, thats pity... need something like plexi leded hdd backplate then, to add some bling to the right side of the case. Any ideas? Or just DIY?
EDITED: found nice hdd/ssd backplates here

Those look nice! I was wondering if anyone made those. Here's what I decided to do on my case, drilled some extra holes and used rubber grommets for sound dampening. Using old HDDs for placeholders for now.

Nice build fewness!

I am looking at building an Intel system using the Corsair 570x as my case. Here are the specs I have planned out so far:

CPU: Intel Core i7 7700k
CPU Cooling: Corsair Hydro Series H100i v2
GPU: ASUS STRIX nVidia GeForce GTX 970 (going to keep GPU until I can buy 4K TV with 4K monitors - Currently have a Panasonic ST60 with two 1080p Dell Monitors)
Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX Z270F
RAM: G.SKILL Trident Z RGB Series 16Gb (2x 8Gb) DDR4 3000 Mhz
Storage: 1x Samsung 960 EVO M.2 NVMe 250 GB SSD's (Along with a Samsung 840 EVO 120 GB, Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB, Seagate 7200 RPM 2 TB, Samsung 1.5 TB 5400 RPM drives from previous builds)
Power Supply: Corsair RMx Series 750w 80Plus Gold
Case: Corsair Crystal 570X

I am just wondering which Corsair water cooler you have installed on your system? I think it looks like the H100i v2, but just wanted to be certain. I also noticed that you seem to have a decent amount of clearance between the radiator/fans and the RAM sticks themselves. Others had had issues with clearance from what I understand. Which RAM did you happen to purchase?

It's H110i and no, it didn't fit at all. I had to move the fan toward outside a bit to avoid the mobo vrm heatsink.
RAM was just G.Skill TridentZ, that should be fine. I wouldn't worry much about about RAM clearance unless you will use a super thick radiator ...

Mine doesn't particularly attract dust or anything although it might stand out a bit more. I just spray the case with canned air once a month or so.
