Hey there all! I am going to be joining up in the club within the next 1-2 weeks! I found a buyer for my current case, so I am starting to plan out my airflow, etc in the 800D.

I am so excited for it! After lurking this thread week after week (and seeing all the gorgeous rigs...), and my current case being crammed with my CF gpus - I am ready!!

Any input is appreciated! I currently have a H70 cooler on my CPU, and 2 Ap-15's in p/p in it. I was thinking about moving the GTs to case fans and going back to stock corsairs on the H70 rad. (maybe snag a 3rd ap-15 to match up if I chose to run the H70 as intake, see below)

I have a couple ideas:



Thanks in advance, and I look forward to posting pics of my new build in the 800D

Email Corsair tech support/RMA hopefully I can get some new backplanes, so as of right now i had to take them all out and connect the drives through the gape.
sucks , hope you can get this straighten out. Was that the new sata3.0 back planes?

Quick question. I just acquired a 800D that I'm going to put a water cooling loop into and I was wondering if I should have the rad on the top be exhaust or intake? Intake would give me lower temps but I don't think only having one fan as exhaust would be a good idea...
(Yes I know this may sound like a dumb question lol)

Thanks in advance for all replies.

Any of those two setup should be fine

I would put them as exhaust, add a second bottom fan and ur ok. you can always add a front intake and a side intake that would help also.

Thanks for the input. The fans are all stock that I know of. I've still yet to explore this gorgeous case that I'm going to attempt to make a little prettier

I agree with above... make them exhaust out the top and plan on turning the rear fan around to push more air INTO the case. My 6 fans pulled air so hard, that 140 on the back did nothing, was losing ground! LOL!

I put a 120mm magnetic stick-on filter for the rear fan as well. Since it's a steel case, it works and fits perfectly... the larger sizes and squares don't fit well. (tried them all).

God damnit!! I snaped off one of the "toolless" clickers. I have no idea how to put it back on, unless its actually broken...

On that note, I told him I doubt there's any way you could do push/pull with an RX 360 and six 25mm fans (internally). I know I couldn't on my UD7 because the ram or MOSFETs heatsink would be in the way, along with my rear 120 RX. Not to mention tubing would be really tight.
Speaking of measurements, I was wondering, what is the size of the window on the 800d. I can measure when I get home, but I am curious if anyone knows. Tried to look on the corsair site and saw nothing.

Also, looking to put an intake fan on the side window as well, anyone recommend any filters for the intake besides the magnetic ones?

So, was thinking. Had an Antec 900 as my last case, its just sitting there. Took out the old drive cage (going to get some filters soon). How does it look?

Went sli too. So far my sli temps have dropped a lot. don't think I will need to cut into the side panel now. Also was thinking about turning the front top fan downwards, heard that could also help. Any suggestions please let me know.

p.s. I love this friggin' case.


sorry for the bad pics
