double post sorry
post #452 of 8657
I would suggest the TJ07, it is MUCH roomier and imo looks better You can fit a quad in the bottom and a triple in the top once you mod the top panel. It is even possible to fit another triple in the bottom if you have a short PSU, or a dual if you have a long PSU.

No problem for the pic, glad to have helped.

When i was looking at getting a full tower, Those were my two final cases I was looking at. And as you see the 800D won for me, but that is me.

I took a piece of paper and wrote the pros and cons for both cases and wrote how much I would have to mod on both cases. And again for me, my choice was the 800D.

The items that won me over were simple ones;
1. cable management
2. already powder coated black on the inside
3. Already had the HDD cage above so I did not have to relocate.
4. better center divider

Yes the TJ07 has more nodded pieces available and I love the MurderMod stuff for them, just more then what I could squeeze by my wife.

If I could, I would want one of each and I'd be in heaven.

But again to each owns preference, I'd suggest looking at what you want, how much you want to mod and figure out the pros and cons of each.

Chad

I'm having quite the debate, in my mind, between this case and a Mountain Mods Extended Ascension. If I go with this, does the $$$ savings make up for the fact I would not have any room for future growth? Hmmmm...
Man thats a lot of HDD, you will have a hard time fitting 10 in there. Why not just get an external sata box for the drives. Some can hold easy 4 drives. I got one and its great got 4TB in there for storage. Or sell the small capacity drives and get bigger ones.

Very nice build man, I like it

The benefit in doing that is 1) decrease the amount of tubing and 2) free up a couple of 5.25 bays. The only negative is that I need to find a good flow meter (the flow meter inside the EK is my favorite part about that reservoir). But is it me or are there just not many good flow meters out there?
I would recommend against flow meters as they restrict your loop.

There not the worst fans nor the best, there just ok. But there great for static pressure imo.

4. Sticky Power Button.
5. Hot Swappable and SSD's issues.
6. SATA backplate issues with hard drives (BSOD or faulty backplate's).

Can anyone comment on the following listed above. Oupavoc listed that these were first batch issues and should not be appearing or happening again but posts on Corsair's forum reveals that the first batches are still floating around. Why is there no recall for the faulty first batches that have certain lot codes. I also remember Oupavoc mentioning that NCIX is currently on the 5th batch (as of his post at that date) but I checked the stock quantities and the Toronto Warehouse has roughly 58 in stock and any one of them could be remanants of the first batches even in the Vancouver warehouse.
I cant really comment on what batch the warehouse got in toronto. But I believe its not any of the first batch, I could be wrong but its been 4-5 months now that the case is out. So imo there isnt anything to worry about. I just recently bought an other corsair obsidian case for a client built from ncix and it had no issues at all. Always remember to peel the front panel protective film slowly as you could tear the corsair symbol as its painted on.

I rather get the 800D over the TJ07. I had that case it was great but to be perfect it needs a lot of modding compared to the 800D. Plus filters, hotsawp, 140mm fans(not 92mm) ect.


If I forgot to add anyone please pm me and ill be glad to add you to list. I have been really busy with work. Take care guys <')))><

Thanks Oupavoc for helping to alleviate my concerns. I do have a question in regards to order placement and based on my location will they ship from the Toronto Warehouse or the Vancouver warehouse ?

I can't decide between the following selections to add 120mm's to the top:

http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...facture=Scythe

http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...re=Yate%20Loon

Both of those fans seem to be more than adequate for running an air cooled based setup for now and that is where I am deadlocked on this.

Well in your situation they could ship from the warehouse from Toronto but you never really know. as for those fans there both great but I would go with the yateloon as long as its not a sleeve bearing fan, but the specs say its ball but the title is sleeve. Only reason is because you will be placing it horizontal and sleeve bearing start to make noise and die eventually, unlike hydro, ball ect.

This is what Im using at the moment. These replaced the rear exaust and hotswap and bottom intake.

http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...cture=Xigmatek

got a few more for one more bottom intake, side intake and front intake(after modding case)

then since the top panel is 120mm and not 140mm, I just got those same fans in 120mm. But in your case between those two I like the yate there great fans

Well I received my Lamptron FC5 fan controller today. Out of the box, looks great. Has the same great sleek looking black aluminum as the case has. Not sure I approve of the white temp sensor wires, but I am not planning on using them anyways. Also not sure why they have the 4 pin connector so short.

Currently I am using three of the fan controllers and am using the first temp sensor for my water. I have the Bitspower G 1/4" Temperature Sensor Stop Fitting seen here.

Currently I only have 1 fan connected to each of the three controllers. I am going to switch it over to two fans to each in time. With the controller plugged in, its very solid and the nob's move solid as well. The angle viewing of the screen is not that well. You see the glare more then my previous skythe controller. However, I have only placed it on the blue, green and of coarse red...

Here are a couple pics of the display connected of coarse in red.

Wow that display is nice!

For whoever was asking about fans, the Gentle Typhoons are my suggetion.

Chad does the FC-5 do white text?
