Thanks mate that looks like a pretty nifty Mid Tower case. I Might use that case for my sister's rig.

Oh well looks like my Fiancé will be getting an 800D like that's going to be such a bad thing =P I love mine to death and I couldn't be happier.

Also thanks about my avatar took me forever to find in google images =P

As much as I love my CM690, I believe I'm going to have to upgrade to the 700D shortly; it's just too beautiful. The 690 is a major pain trying to hide cables, plus I'd like to make a first attempt at watercooling and the Corsair cases look perfect for it.

I'll bump this thread when I pick one up.

I put one of the old Corsair 140s by the 5.25 bays to push the air to the back, which seems to have helped. Any thoughts or suggestions?
Nice job!

Which XLF fans did you use? I think they make them in plain, orange and blue. Do you have pics of your case that you can post? I'm glad that you were able to split the airflow on top (2 exhaust, 1 intake) and get good results. I tried that on my NZXT Beta case on the side panel and temps actually went up! Mine worked best when I had them both working in the same direction.

The Corsair 140mm that you put in the 5.25" bay..... where does it draw air from? Have you thought about an insert for that area? Coolermaster makes one and lian li makes a nice one that another 800D owner used. As a bonus, they allow you to install more drives in that area with the bonus of a 120mm fan as an intake.

Does anyone know of a source for the "ladder" type SATA power cable that comes with the 800D? I would like to get a couple more for two other of my computers.

Yeah, not the hot-swap bay but the other one from lian li. That one doesn't have the extra drive capacity but the coolermaster model does.

this one is on my Storm Sniper case and it's working great, adding 4 extra slots for hdd's and the extra intake fan of course. The coolermaster logo is removable

Considering that the 700D and 800D are pretty much the same case, can I still fit the bottom 240mm radiator in the 700D
post #1519 of 8676

i wanted to look at all the 700ds

Thanks! These are the 140s I bought:
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=44697&...cture=Xigmatek

The 140 by the 5.25" is just double sided sticky foam taped to the cover that hides the sata and power plugs for the hot swap bays. It draws/pushes the air coming down from the top (I think ). I've seen the silverstone 120mm bay converter and I like it, but the price is a tad high for me. I'll see if I can get some pics up today or tomorrow for ya.
