Got my 800D setup all finished on air now looking to go watercooled.

my setup
3930k
Asus rampage IV extreme
EVGA GTX 680 Superclocked
corsair Vengeance 16gb quad channel

I am looking to cool it all but do you think it there will be to much heat for one alphacool ut60 tripple to handle? im still on the fence on weather or not I want to cool the GPU. Mainly doing it to quiet down the case and for looks, I hate my big air cooler on it now.

The UT60 should handle it fine to be honest but any heavy OC will raise your temps by a decent amount.

But if you only plan on sticking with the UT60 then just grab some good fans and paste and you will be fine.

Consider adding another 360 or 240 rad down the road though.

You remind me,....what I have to do this weekend. biggrin.gif

I've been waiting for shipment with some parts that I needed so I could begin with this. smile.gif


To do list:
* dismantle my old (current) case CM690
* wash rx480 and hoses and let it dry
* clean 4xap15
* clean hd7970 + change thermal compound
* clean mbo
* cut 800D top to accommodate rx480
*cut 800D bottom to to accommodate new 240mm UT60
* glue quad rad grill at top of 800d using silicone and let it dry overnight (just to be on safe side)
* glue quad rad grill at bottom
* think what's best place to put DDC1T plus pump with x-res rev2 top, just in case I purchased these
* made hose cutter
* buy more distiled water
* buy few bottles of beer
* start putting things together


BTW morencyam for lower rad isn't it better to suck air from bottom through the rad in the case rather than pulling it out at the bottom? rolleyes.gif

It worked out perfectly for me. My girlfriend was busy all weekend so it gave me plenty of free time to finally get this done. I had been putting it off for far too long. Although it wasn't nearly as dusty as I had anticipated. Probably helps that I take a can of air duster to it once every week or two. The new fans+homemade shroud seemed to actually drops temps a few degrees at ~400rpm slower than the old R4s I had in there. GTs are running ~1400rpm and R4s were 1800-2000. I also switched from pull to push, so that might have helped a little bit too. And less noise. Overall, I'm extremely happy with these GTs.

Gorki, you're probably right, but having them as exhaust reduces the dust build up a lot more than if they were intake. Plus, I'm going to be cutting a fan hole on the side panel right above that rad so it is being fed some fresh air. The same could be said about the top rad too, intake instead of exhaust. But again, dust. I have a GT installed as intake in the 5.25" bay and the rear 140 is intake as well. I'll sacrifice 1-2 degrees for less dust

And as promised, a few more pictures. I added an orange LED strip behind the res. I was on the fence about it at first, but it's growing on me. I need to move the UV CCFL(not turned on in either picture) back to the top as it doesn't light the as well from the side right now. I have another one on the way to go under the rear 140mm fan to light the bottom under the GPUs

Hey all of you 800D users, do you get full USB3 speeds through the pass-through?
Mine isn't working and Corsair's RMA department doesn't seem to respond to my query, so I was thinking of purchasing this
post #4888 of 8668
quick help please...

Is there any easy way to remove bottom disk cage without removing middle cage with disk silencers. I'm cutting bottom compartment to fit 240mm rad at the bottom of 800D. I removed 4 front rivets but it's still stuck. redface.gif
post #4889 of 8668
Could I join your exclusive club? biggrin.gif

650D:
Current state of affair.

550D:


Can't find the data cable for the camera, otherwise I'd post some better pics of the 550D.

Cheers. cheers.gif

Is your 550D leaking bro?
