With my setup, the bottom rads cannot attach to those fan mounting points. So, they sit on the floor w/out the hdd cage risers. This actually positions the fans right inline with the mesh opening smile.gif


I'll figure out some mounting system to secure them as they tend to move a bit right now.

My cable management on the backside of my 800D, It got a little messy at the end in terms of cable routing but for the most part i think it came out pretty decent. I knew it wouldn't come out pristine with each component i added back to the case. The SSD power/ sata cables were a pain in the ass to make look halfway decent.



Back panel fits perfectly on it, doesn't bulge out at all. I decided to mount the SSD's like that because i absolutely hate the way the drive bays are in the 800D, I wish more cases would add options for bottom mounted SSD brackets etc. I'm hoping that the exterior wall that my case sits next to (which isn't properly insulated lol), Will help keep them cool.

I also removed the SATA connector board that the hotswap bays connect to. I used a dremel to lightly grind each sata hole to perfectly fit a right angle cable and sata power connector. With the Sata connector board i had clearance issues, and to be honest, i really don't trust 1 sata power connector, powering 4+ drives lol.

I spent a good 2 days doing this, What might not look like a lot to some, was a whole lot of work. Some people are totally ok with random wires hanging out here or there or just tucking them away in a dark hole on the back side. I want to actually see which cable goes where.

I'm using the CPU Pin extension cable that came with my HX1050 psu. You can see it in the top right of the case. I'm not quite sure how reliable that's gonna be with a "break" in the power, But i guess ill find out.

And in the top left of the case yes, you do indeed see a 4 pin molex to sata converter. My PSU only came with x2 5 sata connector cables. And i dedicated one to my SSD's, and one to my 2 500gb drives. So my optical drive is running off a 4pin molex converter (Which ill eventually paint black so it doesn't stand out). I did it like this to avoid cables being all over the place or stretching them to much. Seeing as i rarely use an optical drive (like unless i install Windows), I didn't care

Oh and for people that were wondering, there's about 15+ drilled holes. Only 2 of them are visible from the other side.

Thanks biggrin.gif. I've had a bunch of downtime waiting on replacement MB + CLU. So i decided to go for it. It helped a lot having an identical MB (that was dead), to use as a template for cable measurements. The one in that picture is my new one, All i need now is CLU and its back up and running frown.gif.

Will probably just settle and use some MX-4 until customs decides to release a 0.15ml tube .....

Any news on new revision of Corsair 650D ?

They should improve this case with two 140mm front fans, remove one 5,25'' front bay, then this case will be perfect.
For what they waiting for rolleyes.gif
