Hi guys. I'm having a hard time finding a reasonably priced 200mm radiator for the front of a 650D. I have an old bulky heater-core that I used as a rad back in 2004 and the size is between a 120mm and 200mm rad..... was wondering if you guys think it's a good idea to use it.

Right now I have a single 240mm radiator at the top cooling my i7 920 and it's working great but I want to water cool my GTX 470 SLI as well since it gets really loud. I want to add the heater core at the front and a 120mm radiator at the back exhaust. Do you guys think a 240mm radiator, 160ish-mm heater core, and 120mm radiator will be enough to cool i7 920 and sli gtx 470?

I am thinking of putting an action figure inside my case. Right on the midplate. where there is an open area.

 

Would the action figure have negative impact?

post #4805 of 8657
An action figure... Its a bit too much!!! I like your build, it is very similar to mine! I like the clean builds, not filled with leds and lights... Nice, but sober!
On that note... Still haven't heard opinions on the questions I placed before? Your input would be much appreciated...
Also, I bought some corsair braided cables in blue... Does anyone have any experience with these? Do you guys think it will go well on a P8P67 PRO Mobo (which is blue)? I am having my doubts...

Anyway, if you guys can steer me to make my beautiful 800d look even better... that would be great! smile.gif

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

Ughhh is anyone else waiting for this awesome Fractal fan controller like I am?!?!? It would look so perfect on the 650D (and most Corsair cases), especially one with the front grill mod on the 5.25" bays (like mine). It was announced soooo long ago frown.gif Fractal has been known to announce stuff that isn't available in the US for a while from what I have seen..

Looks like an NZXT Sentry Mix.
