You can add me to the list. My 800d arrived yesterday.

I'm making a new build with it and an GA-X58A-UD7. I'm a bit mixed on cooling though. I was thinking of getting an NH-D14, but with the recent release of the Corsair H70 I think I might opt for that.

I would love to have a fully water cooled system but am worried about maintenance and/or leaks.

Would a pair of HD 5870's crossfired overheat in such a case?

I've also heard that the stock fans aren't too great. Would these be better?

Thanks for the advice guys.

It's not that the stock fans aren't great, the problem is that the case has bad airflow.

Yes the stock fans leave a lot to be desired. I replaced the 140s with 2 Xigmatek 140s and I added 3 120 Yate Loons on top (1 exhaust and two intake) With upgraded fans the case is cool. I've never tried the coolermaster fans so I can't really comment on those in particular. Just replace the fans that are there and add the three up top

I have a pair of 465 GTX OC'ed and have never had a probelm with heat (at least inside the case) with my current setup.

It's not that is has bad airflow, it's that there is not enough right out of the box. Upgraded fans and adding three up top keep my 4.01GHz i7 @ 66c max load with a downdraft CPU cooler.

Ah cool. Do you think the H70 would be sufficient for a 4ghz overclock on an i7 950? I might go for the Coolit C240 instead, or a full water cooling system. We'll see how I go.

What do you guys think about this approach to a 700d - 480 rad on its edge installation:

[IMG][/IMG]

I really like the horizontally mounted radiator featured in the Silverstone Tj07 cases because they push the heated air out of the bottom sides of the case. Further as the 700d is a fairly fat case I'd bet I could fit a fatter radiator/shroud/fan sandwich mounted in this fashion.

Thoughts?
post #1638 of 8654
great idea but you would need to mod the panels as well. where would you put your hard drives?
post #1639 of 8654
You can get adapters to house your drives in those 5 bays. I'd use two bays for a dual res, 1 bay for a fan adapter, and 2 for combo drives.
