What good is an internal radiator if it cannot receive a fresh, healthy dose of air to flow through the radiator so the heat may be extracted from it and your coolant?
Besides that, not everyone watercools. People that use aircooling would benefit by having two 140mm fans directed towards their videocard(s) and also have a nice flow of air over their other motherboard components. Always a good idea to help the longevity of their internal components and will also help achieve greater &/or more stable overclocks. All people that use watercooling don't always use chipset/memory/hdd and whatever other types of watercooler blocks on their motherboards. Some choose to only watercool their cpu's and vga's. Having little to no airflow to their non-watercooled components is rather ludicrous.
What about the heat that can be displaced by an airflow over the watercooling blocks themselves? Extra aircooling at the source of heat can do nothing but help lower the temp. of the fluid going through the radiator(s) so the fluid will be cooled even further.
It looks atrocious? I've seen things in this thread that I wouldn't allow my cat to see. I've never decided to semi-flame them though. The builder/modder may think it's beautiful. Whether I agree is of no concern at all.
The Obsidian 700D, 800D and the newer 800DW cases have always had terrible airflow. My suggestion is just an easy, bolt on mod to help alleviate this inherent design flaw. If you, Agenesis, don't like it, I really couldn't care less.
This little mod is for people that need extra airflow, not for people like you that need none, except the flow of air that goes through one of your ears and out the other, of course.

Funny thing, when I voice my opinion I'm called down by some Mods I've never even heard of. Besides, when is explaining a post I personally wrote an "opinion"?
Why should anyone have an opinion on something that doesn't directly concern them? Kind of like, who are you to be questioning me?

Where are you guys getting all the 700D's I want one, more than an 800D.

The 700D was discontinued some time around last December. You'd need to buy used at this point.

Speaking of the 700D, did you know you can fit 2 t virus res's, and stack 2 rad's sandwhiched between 9 fans inside it. Muhahahahaha..............

Seriously though, just finished my wc cooling upgrade to my 700D, what do you think? Did a little bit of modding to it. Cut out the mesh for the 3 fans up top, and 2 holes on the back side for returns to the radiators.

Some of the plastic covers and the bottom plastic plate/cover. They are usually very quick but I haven't heard from them all week. Since they are in Cali like me, stuff arrives pretty quick though nothing has arrived. Still, going to be patient and wait for them smile.gif



I just got done cutting out the psu mounting to add an extender for the bottom rad biggrin.gif

Okay, so I have a 650D that I'm working on. I have pictures but I want to post them after i've finished modding the case and innards tongue.gif

My question: can someone point me in the direction of a decorative/modded top grill that I can use? I'm using an H100 which is mounted to the inside of the case, i'm just looking for some type of grill that will properly fit on the top of the case that looks better than the default.

I was thinking something along the lines of:
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_362_540&products_id=26963

But I don't think there is anything there that will fit the top of this cases grill area. What has anyone else done?
