Fan controller is good no noise or something like that, CORSAIR resolve that problem, Front Panel USB 3.0 are not Internal. You need adapter from Silverstone or some similar or to use two of back side USB 3.0 Port.

Yes no discrimination, we are parts of Obsidian Series. smile.gif
I was thought to buy 800D but it's to big for me. Not case like case, need more HW.
If I build one day something with Classified XL-ATX Format or something with SLI and watercooling that would be in Obsidian 800D for sure. I went to buy 2 times 800D and I didn't do that because size and I decide to wait 650D to show up in our retailer shop and buy second 650D case in country I think.


QuadDamage I will VOTE For you... Do you know why???
Because you pay atention od detail. I love when people know to chose fans, sleeve, HW, every detail. I see so many builds 5000e with third class fans inside and people with 20 times cheaper install best Corsair Airseries and Gentle Typhoons,...And you build is harder and need more knowledge I don't talk about style...but Caselabs Build is good to. . That case is one class above all..alone on top. But I don't like when someone first go on biggest model. I don't talk for now, I almost always see that. Caselabs best for me is Merlin SM8 for me. That's case of my dream. Yes 800D is best of all case but that is something differnt totaly. Their quality, style, that only people over 30-35 year can understand. I don't expect some teen to start to build in Caselabs.
For 3 case I wouldn't know what to chosee but at the end of course Caselabs SM8.
-Obsidian 800d
-Lian-Li PC-V750WX Black far best Lian-Li without doubt
-Caselabs SM8

Hey folks, how smart or dumb is it to place 2 fans on top of each other for the bottom fan spot for the 800D?

post #4765 of 8657
its smart because its the only intake I had before I modded my case. I found it to be effective.

Fans stacked directly on top of each other look a little silly, and air probably quite a bit louder than two fans side by side, but I'd also imagine it adds to the cooling factor quite a bit. It creates more of a "tunnel" for the air to push through, I would think.

hey everyone i just built my 1st PC and i used the 550D so i thought i would post a pic and get added to the club! I'll be adding more fans and my MSI NGTX680 lightning will be here soon.

post #4768 of 8657
Hello everyone! Long time owner of the 800D and still loving it as day one... Mind you I don't have all the fancy lights and mods most of you guys have, but I still think it is a great case.

Anyway, just wanted to ask you guys for your opinion...

I have had my case with a Corsair H70 closed loop on the CPU (push/pull, pushing air out from the rear) and just the stock 140mm fan on the bottom (sucking air in) and the one on the side of the HDD tray. I now decided I wanted to put more fans... Not for any particular reason, as my setup is perfectly fine to keep the CPU at around 34-37C on idle and GPU at around 40C (idle, going up to 85C while gaming). My main reason was because I wanted to prevent dust accumulation inside (and man, it does get lots of dust inside) and because once I got excited, I just wanted to buy little things to tinker with my setup.

Long story short, I bought a noiseblocker PK3 (140mm) to replace the stock 140mm at the bottom (to be used as intake) and 3 Akasa apache black to use as intake on top (keeping the H70 with two Akasa Apache black as exhaust). I also bought two DMCfilters, one to place on the top of the case and one for the rear fan opening.

I have a few questions regarding this, that I hope you masters of the 800D can advise/help me with:

1- First... What do you guys think of this setup? Should I leave the stock 140 mm fan under the new Noiseblocker (on top of the filter), to help sucking air in or is this pointless? How can I maximize its efficiency, while keeping noise under control (the computer is in our lounge, and my wife hates noise... Specially if it is coming from my computer!!!) Do you guys think that the choice of fans is OK?

2- Secondly, I am having some doubts connecting all the fans to my P8P68 Pro motherboard. I have my H70 pump connected to the Power header and I am assuming this is running at 100% all the time (as there is not option on bios to regulate the power output of this header). The fans on the H70 are connected to the PWM CPU header and its speed is regulated by the bios. I am thinking of leaving the Chassis1 header (which is PWM) to the 3 top Akasa Apache. Is this a good decision? How should the speed of these fans be regulated? Finally, I have the 3x140mm fans (HDD and the two that I am now trying as bottom intake) connected to the last 3 pin header on the motherboard (which speed is also not regulated by the mobo). What do you guys think? Can you give me some advises on the best configuration/setup? Would a fan controller be any good for me?

3- Last question... What do you guys think would be the best way to mount the 3 akasa on the top? Should I just use the rubber grommets (I hope it is spelled like this...) that come with the fans? Or should I just screw them? On this last point, can you guys recommend some nice looking screws (black or blue, preferably... and if I can find them in Europe, even better) to hold the fans and make my case look even more pretty!!! smile.gif

Anyway... Sorry for the long email! Long live the 800D and looking forward for your comments/suggestions!

Kind regards,
M

As for your fans, and the noise issue. I would use the rubber mounts for them as much as you can. That will help eliminate some vibration noise that will emanate from them. Quieting down the case some, which makes the wife happy.
A cheap trick to do for the fans on your H70 and its mounting to the case, is to use small O-rings between the fans and the case and radiator. Will help some. That way, you can be left with more just airflow noise versus vibrations running through the case. Which as large as it is, I think could act like a re-verb box and make them louder. But how much, is probably very small.
But, if you can show your wife, that you are actively trying to quite it down to make her happy. You'll at least get some brownie points for the effort.
