I gotta stop staring at that picture! No wonder birds fly into windows.

@hawleywood - hahaha!

@lsb1 - that's the price i saw last when I went to the website and other numberous post on here about the cost. i think i'll email him today to see if there is a possibility of a discount if there is a builk buy, then i'll see how long it would take. pretty sure he doesn't keep these on stock and has to make each one when he gets a request so i imagine there would be like a months timeframe before we got everything.

lol but i like my phantom as well (besides the fact i'm not done setting it up). not sure if everything will fit but meh...

I'd be tempted to put an x58 or x79 the 58 is cheap but 79 is expensive. Future proofing isn't a concern with this one kuz i'd prob build it and leave it and use older parts. Then again if I do it I feel like might as well go full out it. 580 sli, 3960x, x79 board and a closed custom loop, maybe throw in a chiller if it's going in a warm room. i'm thinking a deep blue repaint on the same area as the white paint. And of course this would be a computer way exceeding my budget and ability to create such a thing (never painted anything).

So ya... that's the build I have in my mind and can't seem to shake it. Then i realize that'd be better than my main rig ... :S

price differences tho is x58 route i could build it complete for around 1k, x79 route 2k. EDIT2: grossly rounded.

What was the primary reason for upgrading from the H60 to the H80? Just curious, as I feel my H60 holds my temps down rather well! smile.gif
The GTX 260 is a few years old, but to my surprise it is holding up extremely well! It plays all the games I play (TF2, Crysis Series, Skyrim, CS:S, HL2 ETC) the only *downside* is no DX11 - However, I find no use for DX11 anyways smile.gif My friend is giving me his old 260 so I am going to run them in SLI which I heard is very similar in performance with the GTX 560t

The reason for upgrading the pump was this - The H60 started making a crazy noise similar to that of a hard drive reading and writing. After lots of research and comments from members here, the H80 shows a slight decrease in temps - I am about to install my H80 as it just came in today along with the SSD. I got a "guarantee" from corsairgeorge saying if I bought it and it leaked and screwed up my components due to MANUFACTURE error that he will get it processed and they will replace my unit. So I had to take the deal.

borrowing darkcyde's picture for what it looks like

I REALLY want that side panel, and I know he makes them custom.... But I would pay more like $80-$85 :\

if you want to pour a bit more money in and make it look just a tad bit better corsair now sells braided cables http://www.corsair.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=braided+cables
overall nice build and hope you like it! welcome to the club!
Thanks for the suggestion! I had it like that at first, but then I thought, "OH! I'll have more room if I move it up top *FALSE* I was wrong, and was too lazy to put it back. I'll do it today since I am installing my SSD and H80 tongue.gif

Also, I thought there was a way to take that base off! Thanks smile.gif

Nice......feet.................no homo.......... tongue.gif

Don't forget to take out any thing in the 5.25 bays if you remove the front panel to get to the HDD base.
post #5145 of 18217
As promised before, a couple more pics. Also, changed out the stock front fan for the 166cfm NZXT (fits with 3 screws - 1 in stock hole and 2 others through the mesh). Ziptied the last one redface.gif. Also removed the hdd cages (the top one is just there to hold my hdd while I mod another one to clear the thicker NZXT fan.)

Here is the modded HDD cage to hold my single drive. Going to hang from the bottom of the 5.25" bays. Had to cut off the rounded portion of the cage on the right to clear the thicker fan. Just need to prime and paint thumb.gif

I agree. I think those slim fans are a waste of time. They don't have any static pressure and their CFM is almost nothing. We considered them early on but dismissed them. I suppose they are better than nothing though.

The Fan controller that I used have was Aerocool touch2000. The LED touch screen stopped working after 4 weeks. I looked up to Aerocool Forum and alot of peeps had the same type of problem. If there is anyone thinking about installing a Fan Controller stick with Analogue system.

Sorry to hear you had a problem. I have been using an Aerocool StrikeX without any issues for about a year now. I did kill one channel by connecting too many fans to it (my fault), but I fixed it. The soldering job on the output transistors wasn't very good either, but everything else has been working great. I love the display on it. Right next to me my buddy has an NZXT Sentry that has given him no issues. I also have a Zalman with an LCD display, and my other roommate has a Scythe with an LCD display that's a really sweet little number.

I wouldn't lump all digital display controllers in together. I'm sure there's lots of people out there who got bad LCD monitors too, but we don't tell people not to purchase them because we may have gotten a bad one.

I just installed an H60 in my buddy's system. He bought my old Core 2 Quad that was ocd from 2.5 to 3.3, and it gets about the same temps as my H70 did when I was using them all in my 600T. I was very impressed with the H60. Nice even with just push/intake.

@Badwrench

Nice build. Love the yellow. I like your solution for the NZXT fan/hard drive mounting. I just left my bottom cage and cut the curl, but I like the single bay hanging idea. It should look pretty nice when your done.

Sweet builds guys.

Mine was $137 with shipping tiredsmiley.gif I wish they were only $100, it is much more reasonable at that price.

@Mergatroid: Those slims are my temporary solution! Without them, the CPU will overheat, but more importantly - allow me to remove the RAM without having to remove the rad. So for now, they do push air and actually cool my 5170mhz overclock at 39 on idle. Im not gonna rely on them for a burn-in that's for sure! Here's the specs:

2000rpm Version
29.2dBA
27.60CFM
12V
0.16A

On an H60 or H80 setup - why replace a regular fan for a slim? But on the H100 and this case, was there anyone able to mount the H100 on top and still have access to their RAM and CPU Power+ ? (without scrapping it and going for real cooling) Feels like 100% Corsair build wasn't the answer, almost as though the 600T and the H100 were never meant to be together. Anyone else in my boat find a workaround?

All the real cooling will be gotten through DazMode as there are no stores that carry the good stuff where im located. Can't wait!

I've got the scythe slims on my h100 as well for a push/pull config with the radiator exhausting out of the top of the case. I did notice an improvement in temps versus just a pull setup venting out the top. They're just little helper fans for the stock h100 fans. They look nice and do make a bit of a difference. Sorry, no before/after temps available.

I did not like having my h100 venting warm air into the case since that only leaves the one fan on the back to work as an exhaust and I have xfire 6850 which dump a bit of warm air themselves.

I've got a pretty big revision to my setup almost done and hope to post pics and results soon. I think the new airflow is gonna be pretty killer.
