so what are you gonna change on the corsair? It looks perfect to me
The case is great on it's own, but it's more fun drilling holes and cutting new cases apart then just building it alone.

My current MOD plans are just to remove the bottom additional HDD cage to place my 240 RAD down there and cut the side panel to supply air to the RAD. I am sure I will be dremiling and drilling more then just that though.

Nice. I Plan on getting the same case for my next build. I plan on getting a second 240 too on the bottom and another at the back of the case. Tell me what you think of it.

Can't wait to see your ideas for it! o.o

Did some cutting today on the Obsidian.

I removed the lower HDD cage to fit the 240 RAD. I cut out the side panel with a dremel for the 120mm fans and placed a bitspower RAD grill on the side panel to cover it up as you can see below. I just lined it up and marked the screw holes for the RAD grill then drilled away. I bolted the RAD grill to the side panel. The RAD and fans are inside the case.







In this picture below, I cut out a section of the case that sticks out to make it flat so I can fit the 240RAD behind the metal of the case and place 2 120mm fans on the other side and bolt them together through the inside of the case through the drilled holes.

Since the top of the fans is going through the case, I added the Anti-vibration silicon pads just on the lower half of the fan to even it out. Worked great.

Not sure if that made since, but here is the pic of the RAD by itself and one with the fans attached.



Ignore the cables as I have not cleaned them up or finished sleeving the new pumps yet.




And here is a pic of the RAD and Pump placement inside the case


I am receiving the majority of my new parts tomorrow and Wednesday, so more to come.

Did some moving around and found a home for my dual pumps. The XSPC Dual DDC Top looks pretty slick, just wish the inside of the pumps were red instead of Blue.

I cut the HDD plastic bay shield rail down to fit for support support as seen below.





Fillport in place as well.



More to Come!!!

Well I put my loop together and the 250 EK Reservoir bottom was leaking, Luckily I still have the 150 Res. and I am going to drain and swap them out.


But for now, here is a shot with the side panel on showing the grill and fans for the bottom 240 RAD.




A Front view of how my set up will look like. I grabbed a couple Lian Li 3 1/2" bay converters and placed a 80mm Enermax fan behind it to have a little more air circulation. Also used the bay converter for my media reader. The converters are a pretty good match with the style and look of the case, I am very happy with the similarity.

Nice clean cuts. You can ship your HAF to me now since you have no use for it and all .
