The problem is getting a psu small enough that will allow me to keep the 3.5 drive cage in but yet have enough power.

Ah well thats not to bad then, cant complain if it was free! Its not a bad psu just wondered why! I suppose if you go full modular with some custom short sleeved cables then you'll save a lot of space in that case!

EDIT: Yeah I see what you mean about the size of psu as its nearly touching that cage already. If you get full modular then I would look for a 140 or 150mm max which will give you some space for the modular connectors.

Exactly, I'm not sure there is a psu in the 750 and up range that is that small? Silver stone makes one I think. Trying to stick with corsair though.

Actually 850W is way overkill for that rig. I think it's a great supply. Don't see why you would replace it.

I pulled the cx850 out and the h100i gtx. I could only fit the h100i gtx with one fan and it was still very very tight because the vertical power board on this impact board. Also the tabs from the front bezel hits the endtank on the rad making it very hard to get in all the way. Corsair said the 380t was design for the h100i not the gtx. So I have a ax860i psu on the way so I can make sure I have stable clean power for the 6700k and matrix 980ti. I decided to see if o can fit a h80i in it a little better so I ordered one of those.

If anyone has any other suggestions my ears or eyes in this case are wide open.

Sounds good! using a h80 should give you some more room, also I would recommend going custom short braided cables, either by making your own or using this site http://www.moddiy.com/ which make custom cables to any length for most psu's out there. I've used them a few times for that service and have always been good and cables high quality.

Hey guys

Moved from a 600T to a 760T. I need some input and advise regarding airflow and fan setup. I want to go for a green LED scheme so I will most likely opt for Cougar's CFD (aka Dual-X) green LED 120mm/140mm fans everywhere as Corsair does not do high AF fans with green LEDs at this point in time. The H100i GTX on the other hand will still use the 2x stock high SP fans for now that comes with it, though I may consider going push/pull with Corsair green LED high SP 120mm fans at a later stage.

Here is what I have planned and also poses my questions / concerns embedded in the image's text:




I want to achieve optimal airflow with a slight positive pressure inside the case to keep dust out. I am inclined to turn the rear chassis fan to blow air in and will get some DemciFlex filters for everywhere there are air intakes. If this is a good idea to make it an intake? Also, should I go 120mm or 140mm for the rear?

There is also the possibility to use the other top fan mount as the 760T can have 3x fans at the top: 2x for H100i GTX and 1x not in use (at least not intended in my illustrated plan). Don't know if this changes things a bit?!

Does anyone have thoughts and opinions that they wish to share which would be most welcome? Thank you in advance.

Regards,
CTV

Very nice detailed question smile.gif.

I'm not a pro but what I have learnt is that achieving a certain "types" of airflow doesn't really come down to the number of fans.

It's more "surface area" and RPMs of fans.
( 140mm having more "surface area" = more air than a 120mm fan)

So with this knowledge you can always change it simply with a fan controller.
Having the intakes spin faster than exhausts is the easiest thing to do.

I would keep rear as exhaust and only have 2 140 intakes. (Slightly faster than the 3 exhausts)

That leaves you with the bottom 120mm. You can leave it out and put the HDD cage back in if needed.

As I used to smoke vapour. I used to "blow" the vapour onto the cracks in my case. If it blows back out then you have possitve pressure. If it gets sucks into the case, then you have negative. (I always get these two mixed up but you know what I mean)

You could always try a lit candle.

Edit: Forgot to say. If you do decide to have the bottom fan you could turn down the speed of your intakes and potentially lowers the noise output.

That is good advice. I can change the pressure from negative to positive in my build by using my fan controller to increase input flow while decreasing output flow.

Making some changes and fixing some stuff. Issue with the Asus Impact the vertical power board makes a couple cooler tight. The only recommended cooler for this case is the h100i as the rad is thinner. The h100i gtx is thicker making the fans hit the vertical power board. The h80i I bought will not fit in the side, back or front. The case hits the rad in the back and I don't want to modify the case by bending or cutting. The fans in the front are threaded in the care and not open like a standard fan hole.
So i got lucky and found brand new h100i's in stock at corsair. Then found a extended psu bracket to allow larger psu's and still keep the 3.5 hdd bracket. Then yanking the cx850 psu and replacing with ax860i..
