Thanks. Fan ducts are indeed rare these days. This is basically the only 120mm one you can find that doesn't look awful:

As you can see it is light blue in color. It just looks purple in my pictures because it's attached to a purple fan.

I can't center it exactly where I want it because of the HX1000's length, but it's good enough to direct some external airflow to the larger 140mm above.

Anyone else have a problem where the HDD LED constantly flashes? Mine flashes at a set interval on idle. It does blink or fill when I do HDD-related activity, but this idle behavior is odd.

Normally I wouldn't attribute this issue to the case itself, but I don't remember this happening on my old case (or maybe it just didn't show as well so I didn't notice).

Seeking loop guidance. biggrin.gif

Of the following loops, which is optimal for Intel 2600K (clocked above 4.5Ghz ideally) and GTX 580 SLI (clocked above 900Mhz ideally). I don't have these parts yet, waiting for Sandy Bridge to release. If you have a better loop for me please tell.

Dual pumps is for redundancy/back up. Also I realize external radiators aren't pretty, and I could mod the top or bottom of the case for a 480 or 240, but I'm not doing any modding for my 1st water cool.

I would go with #1 and maybe add an 240 at the bottom down the road.

120.3 on top 2 single rads one on bottom one on the back

hello Everyone,,


My Small review on 800D..

PS ....

Corsair 800D is gigantic and stands proud on my Desk and i love to watch it all the time.. Before pickup I wanted to check for any sratch or dent, everyone is stunned and watching it as ONE HOT CHICK biggrin.gif in my Vendor shop . I felt proud of it smile.gif....


Matter:

I am somewhat not satisfied with 800D like HAF X.... Sure 800D is big and High quality cabinet.

Corsair concentrated on cable grommets everywhere but didn't put right mind on side door to have space like HAF X .. With all cables (hours of headache) still i can see side door bulge near front panel no matter how hard i try to manage cables.
is it like this for everyone? Or me only?

I checked there is no bent or dent on side door(Back door).. With all cables removed i see no Bulge at all. But with Just few cables it's slight odd and with ATX 24 Pin wire...I see clearly Side door bulge or pop out near front panel... That's very odd for such a costly cabinet and i didn't like it at all.. In this case , I rate cable management is pretty high in HAF X.... No matter how big or thick the wires are ,it handled quite ease without any pop-out or bulge near front or back of the case..... HAF X single side door weighed almost same as combined two doors of 800D,maybe that's why i didn't see any pop-outs in HAF X....

And also everything is very good in 800D but HDD temps have gone very high from 29-31 (HAF X) to 38-41 in 800D..

I know that this cabinet is for watercooling but didn't expect it is so bad for AIR cooling.. in Coming months i might upgrade to WC but how can i control TEMPS for HDD. Video card temps is not bad compared to HAF X.. Processor same temps in either case....

Another thing is i hate .. Front panel USB ... Ports are little loose to hold cable firmly so my 160GB WD passport will not detect. I have to use rear panel USB port to use it.. This is not the case with HAF X..

Temps:
Room Temp for 800D 22c
Room Temp for HAF X 27c
for last few days, winter kicked in suddenly ,so that's why room temps are different...

CPU(OC)4ghz:

Idle : 34
Load: 72 (prime)

Vid card

HDD: 38

HDD: 28-29

Sys Ambient: Case temp

I have 3x1 TB HDD and Two 500GB HDD.

Finally I am quite satisfied with one thing for sure.. It does takes dust very low compared to HAF X.
