Hey Guys, i have been eyeing the 650D for a while, but couldnt afford it.
Well, i figure Christmas is right around the corner (ok, its a long corner-lol) and told (asked) the wife i am getting an early Christmas present. (she will forget by then-lol)
So i bought one a month ago, (its been sitting here collecting dust) and a couple other things-MSI 7950 TF3, waterblock for 7950, 256GB ssd, 280 radiator and a fan controller.
WOW, spending the $180 on the case doesnt seem like a big deal after the $700 on the other stuf-lmao.

well here it is-wadda you think? good and bad.










Thanks,

-dimwit-

Now as for sound silence, how do your CFX 6950s do? Audible or no? I have CFX 6950s as well, and my god...It hurts the ears when gaming.

Also was for cable management, even if it's snug, all cables still fit behind the MB tray? That's one thing that is super annoying for me, my cables to not fit with the side panel on with my 922 so my panel is currently off.

My crossfire cards have always been quiet. But in my 600T I could hear the fans when I really started gaming.

But normally you can't hear them, and then in this case, even when gaming, they aren't audible.

My cards are XFX cards, that came with "silent" fans though.

You should be able to fit all your cables behind there. Just take your time and do it well.

And anytime, friend!

The temps in the case do get a little warm. Surprisingly, it cools better when fans are all set to their lowest speed on my controller. On idle, the CPU, motherboard, and drives are around 25-27C when it's 70F in my room, GPU's being about 35C.
On load, CPU gets to about 30-35C, motherboard and drives around 28-30C. My top card gets to around 70-75C, my bottom on is around 60-65C.
I'm thinking about replacing my two side 120mm's with one big 200mm. Would cool the top card much better and be quieter. I also leave the side and top panel covers on my 550D off, as they really don't make any audible difference in sound levels with my fans. The loudest thing in my system is probably the H100 pump. Which I can only head when I'm next to my case, under my desk, with the side panel open.
No it's not. Each card has 2GB. 4GB total. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Wow, actually those are not bad temps. I agree regarding cable lengths. In your case, almost the only cables you can see are the GPU power cables. Maybe just get some extensions for those and give them a try the same way you have them set up currently. Red would go nice with your fans.

Sweet build man. Just a suggestion. Maybe go to an auto parts store and get some trim to put around the cutout for your side panel fan. Very well done overall. I think that's my favorite case right now. Nice job on the bottom rad.

The only problem with that is I'd get all "OCD" over the cables being black at the bottom where they touch the PSU and then change coming in from the panel. ;]

I might look around or make my own red, black, and white braid. I'm still considering what color to paint my fans. Either white or red, definitely. But not sure yet.
I may also do some slight modding/painting to the H100. But that's if I start feeling adventerous. ;]

Does anyone know if the new Corsair fans fit on the 800D hot swap bay? To take the place of the old one?

Yes it does fit because it has the same size of the 140mm stock fan. smile.gif

You have the Corsair AX750. You could always pick up a Corsair kit if you don't mind spending the money:
