post #2891 of 8668

I am building a new computer in not long and I am (ofcourse) going with the Corsair Obsidian 800D. I am going to water cool my 2 x GTX 580 and 2600K. I was thinking of going for a loop like this: Res -> Pump -> GPU -> GPU -> Rad -> CPU -> Res, as this would be the cleanest way I think (least tubing). I was thinking of going with the Swiftech MCRES Micro Revision 2, and want to do something like the guy in this video:


So what I am wondering is, how can I do that without modding? I know he has made a plate and modded it there, but is there any other way to do it?

Also, omg it's hard to decide between white and black tubing!

1x 360 radiator might be a bit iffy for 2x 580 and the CPU, I have a 360 and a 240 radiator for my 2x 5870s and CPU. You might want to look into adding another 240 on the bottom or even just a 120 on the side without modding the case.

With regards to the reservoir, have you considered getting a cylindrical reservoir with a clip that you can put in the same location as that reservoir.
something like this http://www.frozencpu.com/products/95...?tl=g30c97s166

But if you insist on using a bay reservoir, and without modding at all, the reservoirs are all designed to sit in the 5.25 bay

Does the Obsidian 650D have the standard 200mm size fans in the front and top? Or does it use the uncommon sized 200mm fans that are found in the Graphite 600T?


Edit, meaning could I replace both fans with Coolermater Megaflows?

Whats a good fan to replace the stock 140mm fans on the 800D. I've noticed the corsair ones are quiet but don't seem to move much air.

A lot of air movement, but kinda loud: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835129057

Not as much air pushing power, but more silent, and UV reactive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835426027

yeah im running a single 360 for my 2 6970's and a overclocked i7, it is just barely enough and iirc the 580's put out a little more heat the the 6970's

I know they will replace the top fan just fine, as the added extra depth is not an issue. I believe people have said that the front Megaflow only fits if you move the HDD cages... I could be wrong, but if it does fit then it will probably be right up against the cages. I personally have one of the HDD cages removed and I moved the second one to the alternate position next to the PSU... now I have enough depth to put 10 Megaflows if I want to, lol... and the better part is that nothing is immediately blocking the front 200m fan, so I get better air flow for my graphics card

Using around $5500 on my computer and $1300 on the water cooling, so don't really have more cash to spend atm. But if I am not overclocking anything atm, I guess a 360 would be enough seeing how little heat Sandy Bridge makes?

Btw, is there anyone here that has mounted the Swiftech Micro Reservoir like in that video? If so, could you give me an idea of how easy/hard it is, and what I would need to do it?

Has anyone placed a Liang D5/Swiftech MCP655 with an EK-D5 X-TOP-V2 in the PSU zone of the 800D? Just a little conserned about the height. Also, how would people rate the MCP655 vs the MCP350/MCP355 (specially considering performance/noise)?

I have mainly done research on quiet fans to replace the stock fans when I get the 800D, so don't know if this helps you, but will just give you a link to them anyways: NoiseBlocker BlackSilent Pro 140mm

From those I am going for the PK3 with a fan controller. And if you need a good 120mm I will just say that Scythe Gentle Typhoon's are lovely ^^,

I have not tested the NoiseBlockers, but they seem to get a lot of good words. Must warn you that they do cost quite a bit though.
