I have been inspired by Corsair 800d builds for over 2 years now on this site, and finally this is my first water cooling attempt. I am glad I forked out the cash for a decent case as the 900d looks fantastic and will be suitable for many upgrades in the future - maybe another 770 or some new AMD cards...

I am considering changing the fittings over to Alphacool shiny copper fittings because I have taken a liking to the shiny copper objects that already exist in my case (screws and cpu block); there seems to be plenty of black and white 900d builds out there.




Open to any ideas/questions

Just an idea. Don't you want to cover a bit of the front fan controller? I don't really like the side parts when you only use one 5.25". If you'd use two or more 5.25" bays then it would be ok.

I kinda get where you are coming from if you think it breaks the continuity of the case front. I have fully concealed the 5.25" fan controller in my last case being 650d. I could easily do that on this case, however, the fan controller allows me to easily see the case air and water temperatures, which in my opinion outweighs the negative aesthetics.

Maybe I will use a bay res in the future and it won't really matter as you have mentioned.

Thanks for the ideas!

Have you a picture of it in the 650d? I would like to see it smile.gif

Even then you could try to hide the sides, but as I said, then it's not anymore such a big problem thumb.gif

Here is a picture of the 650d with the concealed fan controller - no issues putting it in that way.

I had been trying to think of a way to add a fan controller an maybe ODD to my 900D without breaking the flow of the front panel, was thinking about buying some extra panel pieces to cut the ends off of and affix to the case.

But I think you gave me my answer.

Great looking builds guys
I honestly don't think I have seen one good looking front bay fan controller that would go well with the 900D.
I gone and used Voltage step-down adapters as not to scar the look of the front panel.

I was going to go with the 4930K and the new Asus RIVE but it's just taking to long so will go with Haswell build until Haswell-E Launches.
Got a MAXIMUS VI FORMULA for a really good price.

Want to try something new on the board I don't know if it will work well or look good with 2 cards on the board but it's just an initial idea.
Going to try some metallic colors as well.

Fittings are so damned expensive that i decided long ago to only ever use 1/2 x 3/4 in my large towers. Save's you (me) allot of money when it comes time for another build. Especially now that i own close to 1,000$ in fittings mad.gif

Nice idea, but you'll never be able to see that with GPUs installed.
