It just takes creativity and a lot of effort. Make sure you have some good power tools as well.

You kinda have to make it fit the best you can, I used plastic nut and bolt method to secure, bolts give me a bit of flex for easier installation then metal.

Anyone can mod! It just takes planning, dedication and effort to pull it off well.

And you know... Power tools/Dremel

went looking for the rubber screws today at best buy. they didn't have. any online suggestions? Also, do you have a pic of what it looks like. the metal screws seem to fit. But I'm kind of OCD when it comes to how things look and I am worried that the fan is not secure enough. My friend told me i'm nuts and not to worry, its in there tight. But for a few bucks I wouldn't mind a few rubber screws. Please let me know when you can and thanks for responding :-)

I just took the 120mm rubber anti vibration adapter that comes with the case and sat it under the fan and laid it over the hole. That way its raised off the bottom and has no vibrations. Also the rubber keeps it in place if i tilt my case.

Just so's ya'll are aware of it, I discovered that none of the 5 different 120mm fans I have will fit the TOP (OUTSIDE) of the 800D case.

Why? Well, suppose I want to add a shroud, still maintain a Push/Pull fan setup and the only way to do that is mount the Pull fans outside!!! Or maybe I want more room inside! Or maybe a double 3x120 radiator setup.

No matter the reason, the indentation where the fans mount slopes a lot and will not allow a 120mm fan to sit flush with the grill. The corners are worse due to the gentle rounding thus preventing the sharper cornered fans from sitting flush as well.

I'm in contact with Tech Support at Corsair and they seem to think there is no problem judging from their first reply... Also, I've been trying to get some spare parts -without success- as well. Sigh... it's the economy isn't it?

Some reviews actually say a radiator can be mounted externally in that area; well, not without standoffs since fans won't sit flush!

I just wanted to inform folks since all the reviews on the net and in here FAIL to mention that simple fact. It would have been much better to have made the case top FLAT IMHO or else significantly enlarge the indentation supporting the grill.

I hope Corsair will review this and make a minor change somehow because this is totally unsatisfactory considering all the incorrect reviews and adverts and the price!!

^^^weird, the top is design for a triple 120mm radiator (360x120mm w/ 15mm spacing). I've never heard of anyone with issues adding 120mm fans or rads. double check and be gentle. If it looks like it might have been ill-manufactured, pm CorsairGeorge and include pics, good luck thumb.gif

I just spent the last couple days reading/skimming all 296 pages of this thread...

Add me to the 700D list, I've had it for a while now but just recently got a second HD5870 and air cooling is no longer cutting it. So I ended up in this thread looking at how everyone has done things and what they've used. Some of the builds are absolutely beautiful!

As this is my first foray into water cooling I've been looking at parts and reading stuff for 2-3 weeks and am planning to cool only the GPU's at this time, air is good enough on the CPU for the time being.
So far I've picked the following;
Black Ice Stealth GTS 360
Not sure what fans but I know they should be high speed for the GTS
D5 pump
1/2" tygon clear tubing
StealthRes 175 Multi-Option Reservoir
Koolance GPU-220 GPU waterblocks (no full coverage for my cards)

Any comments/recommendations?

As she sits now (side off and desk fan blowing at the GPU's when gaming);

Tex1954. I have to agree with wermad on that one. I have had 3 120 mm fans mounted to inside of the top on my case with no issues as well as running my 360 rad there now with no problems. I even sat fans on the top of mine and they seem as thought they would work there as well. Must be a damaged or defective top. Sorry to hear that.

The problem is EXTERNAL mounting of fans!!!!!

And I have been gentle... tired of replacing fans that lost a blade due to me messing around with fat fingers while things running! smile.gif

I've checked, double-checked, and triple-checked the double-checks again. None of the fans even come close to sitting flush on the grill top, especially bad on the corners.

I don't know if I got a bad batch top or whatever, but clearly "this" top will not allow me to mount a fan without some sort of spacer and that IMHO is plain nuts. It's such an obvious booboo that I have to wonder if the outsource folks made a change Corsair wasn't or isn't aware of because the normal quality of their products is tip top!

Sigh, I really don't know what to do other than complain...

Bottom line, I bought this case to avoid having to do hardware mods and now kinda disappointed... sigh... Maybe Corsair will help, probably learn something Monday or Tuesday.

frown.gif

Picture speaks 1000 words... With the left side of the (any) 120mm fan down, not only do the holes not line up, but the right side floats up the sloped part... Best I can determine is the sides are about 2mm in to close (4mm total too narrow) and the corners are even worse due to the large radius vs. the fans tight radius.
