Hi guys! Can I join the club?




Still have some work left, changing the PSU to a corsair AX 850 and getting those awesome sleeves wink.gif Also thinking of making the lighting in the case more consistent, at the top I have cathodes and in the front LED's, its not hard to see the difference. It does not bother me that much when the sidepanel is on, only when its off. Other than that I am extremely pleased with the 650D!

You could get some low profile fans, like the Scythe Slip Stream Slim or Yate Loon Thin, remove the motor and blades so it is a bare fan frame and use them as shrouds between the fans and radiator. That should improve performance a little, but not as much as push + pull. Or get a Koolance shroud to install on the top of the case, install one set of fans in there with the rad mounted to the case and fans on the bottom of the rad as well giving you the push + pull you want. Of course the Koolance shroud is optional and you could just put the fans on the top of the case anyway, but they would be exposed

Very nice looking build. Cable management is excellent. For more consistent lighting, I'd recommend one of the NZXT sleeved LED kits

Thanks, the 650 really makes cable management easy and since I am changing the PSU within a month or so I didn't even bother to tie the cables on the back. Just moved them around until the sidepanel could be closed wink.gif

I already own a NZXT sleeve kit, I had it in my old case. This time I wanted something cleaner and fresher smile.gif Thanks for the tip tho brorbo thumb.gif

Hello all.

I really love my 650D, it is 'hands down' the best case I have ever had!

My only "gripe" I have is the spacing behind the motherboard, meaning I wish there was more;) It took me 2 days of painstaking meticulous work to get my cable management where at least I am content with it. The back panel fits on with no issues so that makes me very happy because before it was bowing out pretty bad:( To lessen some of the cables, I removed the fan controller that came with the case, since I use Corsair Link, FanSpeed, etc to monitor and control my fans.

I wanted to do a 'push/pull' with my H100i but due to the heat sync on the AsRock z77 Extreme4 motherboard, there is not enough clearance for it:( sigh... I think later this year I will upgrade to Asus z77 Maximus Extreme Gene V:) If I can pay my current NewEgg account off;)

Eventually I will replace my front 200mm fan with a blue LED or something (I really like yours nonomos, what fan is that and lighting?). I am looking in to the whole U/V lighting and cables as well but very new to that kind of stuff.

Anyway, here are some pics of my rig in its current state. Please go easy, I have not really done any modding, overclocking, etc since the Celeron days;) I got bored with the console gaming and thought I would get back into PCgaming again;)

^^^ Is that USB 3.0 Passthrough cable something that is needed if your motherboard does not have a on board USB 3.0 connector, or a case thing? I HATE that cable, and how untidy it makes everything look. Using the ASRock Extreme 4 LGA 2011 mobo.
post #5109 of 8654
Only if you want to use the cases front usb 3.0 ports. I bought a Silverstone usb 3.0 adapter so I did not have to run the cables to the back of the case. Still I would have preferred that the ASRock extreme 4 mb offered a better solution.

This was one of my main concerns about the 650D. The stock fans are in my opinion crap, I didn't like the quality or the looks. Performance wise I'm sure they are ok though.
I wanted a fresh and clean look so I decided to go with white lightning. I have two cold cathode's at each side of my radiator, I really think it illuminated the inside well smile.gif
http://www.akasa.com.tw/update.php?tpl=product/product.detail.tpl&no=181&type=Accessories&type_sub=Case%20Lighting&model=AK-188-UV



The front fan however was a trickier deal, I bought a Cooler Master Megaflow since everyone said that's one of the best 200mm fans available. But where I live they only come in blue/red LED's, so I was in for a little modding. So I purchased some white LED's and black paint.

The old LED's had to go.


And then I painted the frame black, soldered and inserted my new, fresh white LED's smile.gif


The result (camera strap photobomb)
