[Official] Corsair Graphite Club [780T/760T/730T/600T/380T/230T] - Page 1576

post #15751 of 18197
Hi, just bought a Mopar orange 230T to corral my gaming rig. I'm on doing a lengthy build and needed a cheap good looking case to put my gaming rig in while work progresses on my other build. I could have just left everything on the box after testing, but don't want anything to go awry with it sat in the open. living in the UK it's not the best place to source for the more exotic pc parts I want for my build. So while I wait on parts and inspiration, I decided to buy the 230t so I can at least use my rig.

I'm going to need to perform a couple of quick mods to house the 360mm and 280mm rads in the case, remove the 3.52 and 2.5" bays and remove the bottom of the 5.25" bay to make room for the 280mm rad in the front and a little Dremel action on the roof to get the 360mm in.

hopefully I will get it all done today, so I can get back on BF4 after a month of cold turkey with having my rig in bits. So I'd probably better crack on.

a shiny new 230T



lower bays gone, 4 screws and they are out. now to get the 280mm rad to fit.

What type of exotic parts are you looking for? Cos the UK has a range of places you can get things.

Last I checked, all we had were the hints Corsair George dropped a little while ago (picture saying June 3rd with two silhouettes). All we know is June 3rd is important and that there will be a large ITX version of the case.

Why is there NO XSPC 45 degree fittings in the UK. I mean like there's a guy who probably has 200 of them or something.

thankfully not 45 degree XSPC fittings lol. the main problem is availability in the quantity required. It would be nice not to have to buy, say fittings or fans from 2 or even 3 different places. Meaning more on delivery charges and figuring out who sold you the one that doesn't work.

I've found some good e-tail shops for parts. as well as a couple of good shops in the Manchester area, but with watercooling being a niche within the niche of modding sort of and the number of separate parts. getting what's needed means multiple orders and inevitably. forgotten or even double ordered parts.

One thing I haven't found that I want for my main build , is a Coolance 360mm full copper radiator. Very shiny biggrin.gif . FrozenQ reservoir's are another hen's teeth item.

I'm hoping to use Monsoon's hardline lock acrylic tubing system for my main build, till then I'm just putting my rig into the 230T till I can harvest the rest of the parts I need. there's only OverclockersUK listing the monsoon kit, but it's either out of stock or pre order.

Winge over, must get on putting this together. Have fun.

Yeah the Americans are lucky, we've only got a few shops that sells "custom" pc parts so it's a bit of a pain. Have you tried eBay? That's where I get most of my parts from. But I do feel you though, especially with the postage costs. And with pre ordering from overclockers and scan, just be careful. They screw me and a few people over. Just make sure you keep nagging them. Cos sometimes you'll be waiting for over a month just for few bits.

Your rig looks good so far man. Keep it up.

I don't do pre order for that reason. If it's in stock, I'll get it. cheers for that. It's getting there. Just need to figure out the running order on the loop. I forgot to take the southbridge block into account when working out the loop lol headscratch.gif.

C&C Central is a good place to buy online and they are straight on the phone if there's any problems with your order. well worth a look, he does a more liquid specific online shop as well at The Watercooling shop. Specialtech and Kustompc are another two good, small businesses where you get top service. Or I have at least.

I was up at Scan in Bolton this morning, picking up the case and other parts needed for this build. Again, top service. It was a bit busy, but there were a couple of people in front of me, and the sales guys were doing a good job of advising them on what kit they needed. On the flip side, I can't go into a Pc world without wanting to go postal on the staff gunner.gif

it's usually cheaper to buy stuff from Scan's ebay shop, as they offer free delivery on most of the stuff. Unlike there shop site where it's a £4.19 minimum delivery charge.
post #15759 of 18197
Yeah, I've had problems with scan especially. Overclockers have been all right but they lost my RMA last month but replaced it. Specialtech been my favourite, they answer my question at night most times. ( guessing some of them work at home).

Down in Devon / Cornwall we don't have many good shops. Most pc shops charge £60 for like 4GB of ram for example.

With the loop, (well what I done with acrylic tubing anyway) is just to have the shortest route from one fitting to the other. That's probably the best way to do it. Especially in a small case.

scan are my go to shop. They have always been alright with me. even when I fried a 4770k a week after getting it. they swapped it without a word. talked to Martin at Specialtech a couple of times, he's a good guy.

It's just the last run from my southbridge back up to the res. my 290x takes up a bit to much room. Managed to get it to go, it's only for 2 months max. I'm building a case from a CM HAF xb, doing a orange half life theme. while I'm on building it I just needed a case to put my rig in in the mean time. So it doesn't need to be completely spot on, close to will be good enough wink.gif
