wermad you are a bad influence. You will probably be the one that causes me to cut up my 800d. Very nice.

post #2993 of 8657
I changed VGA and water loop.


I never used any electronic stuff.
no saw, no drill, no dremel... All by hand....

Why? I don't have any in my home.... even a drill...

Noooooo~

Thanks. The 800D is a fabulous canvas to create a master piece

Thanks and yes, two XSPC RX480(s). I have yet to finish up the wire management so the right door is still not on. Once I have her closed up, I'll be running some benchmarks and find out what temps I'm getting. I don't really expect any dramatic decreases but a few ticks would be ok. I did this for the mod rather than to achieve lower temps. A showcase piece to demonstrate what the 800D, some creativity, & power tools can do

Very nice and clean bolt-on. Its never too late to accumulate some power tools. Or, befriend a "Bob Villa" friend and pay him or her w/ a 12 pack to let you use their tools

But for a few bucks I wouldn't mind a few rubber screws. Please let me know when you can and thanks for responding :-)

If anyone is interested, Corsair is showing the 6Gb/s panels back in stock. Just placed my order, will see if I can pick it up tomorrow (Corsair is on my drive to work).

Anyone have a hot swap backplane fail after a short while?

I've only owned my 800 for 3 months, and (stupid me for using hot swap bays for OS on a raid 0 ssd array) disk 0 shows error occurred.

First I thought it was the ssd, but no matter what drive I put in there, an error occurs.

I have to take one backplane off and mount it directly...wonder if it's just a sata cable...hope it's not sata port 0.

Yes, I experienced the same problem first week running! I don't use RAID-0 with my SSD's anymore and it seems to work okay that way, but I never thought the backplane could have been a problem because it's just passthrough connectors. Fact is, I was/am going to eliminate it so I can put 2 more Dual 2.5" trays in the hotswap bays. I have one Dual 2.5" that works well in a 5.25 bay adaptor already.

Also noticed, it's really easy to insert the hotswap tray with a 2.5" drive on it in the top bay in such a way it doesn't work or connect at all.



This Kingwin has real status LEDs on front glow redish outline when accessed, but you must use their 4-pin to SATA power cable . Also, they provide 2 mylar stickon protectors for the PCB side of the 2.5" drive. I sliced up some pieces and stuck them on the bottom of the plates to leave the holes open rather than stick them on drives. Figured one strip in middle and 1 each side would prevent contact. So far, works like a charm.

I have 2 500G 2.5" drives in there at the moment... plan to move SSD's into another box soon as I get it installed. BUY several 4pin molex splitters too; it makes things a lot easier.



PS: Removing the front face of the hotswap tray (4 little black screws), not sure I can use it to hold another Kingwin thing... sigh... Sure a lot of wasted space... I mentioned to Corsair Tech Support that they could improve the 2.5" support... doubt anything will get done. Think if I ever do this again I will certainly avoid Corsair cases for extreme water cooling unless some changes are made... great case for the money, but too many details lacking... like outside-top fan mounting for extreme performance, 5.25 bay alignment problems (no adjustment), lack of extra hotswap trays (been waiting over 2 months now)... etc... Also, lower fan in my Corsair RAM cooler (mine is red colored) has started going south after 2 months... (I know, RMA or something... just quicker and easy to replace them!)

MY BIGGEST COMPLAINT and source of frustration is that with just a tiny bit of TLC this case would rock like nothing else!!! IT IS ALMOST PERFECT and VERY WELL engineered... but for a few details, it could blow away ALL competition at about any price!!!

Contact RMA at Corsair. They'll send a new one.
