I just upgraded my PC again, got the asus sabertooth x79, i7 3820 and the Corsair H100i.(pics will follow)
But i still have a question, i have mounted the radiator inside the case and the fans outside (top)
When i put the mesh cover over the fans, they get really noisy. Does anyone of you have the same problem?
I'm using the standard fans i got with the h100i

here's a blurry pic from my cellphone biggrin.gif

Hi guys,

New member of the forum and to the 600t club. After spending a whole lot of time reading through this thread and getting so many great ideas I had to make an account and post my rig.






I had a Bitfenix Spectre Pro installed, but it started making ticking and grinding noises right off the bat so gonna have to return it. Rocking the stock 200mm for now.

It's far from done, gonna do sleeving (not sure if I'll try to do that myself or go the easy way and get pre sleeved extensions), some white lights are going in, better RAM, maybe an attempt at a custom sidepanel and so on. It's not too flashy but it performance extremely well.

I'd like to refer you to one of my old posts, where I had the same problem with my BitFenix Spectre Pro 120mm's. This is a very common "mod", which almost everyone with fans mounted the same position does:

http://www.overclock.net/t/831636/official-corsair-graphite-club/7140_20#post_17952891

It literally takes 20 seconds to do, and doesn't in any way damage the mesh as long as you don't cut in the mesh itself. It's really sturdy, so you don't have to worry about the mesh bending or anything, when the supports in the middle are cut off smile.gif

Well cruelntention, I have to warranty my mobo, ram and cpu so its given me time to check my system. Its been 4mths since my last clean and my H100 is on top as exhaust and I use filters and have the system setup with positive air pressure so my front filters are used. I clean my filters every thursday night ready for the weekend. And this is the state of my H100


All I can sugest is you do as Mergatroid has suggested and use can air or a compressor to clean your radiatior, but I would NOW recommend this to anyone that's using radiators to check the fins on your radiators for the first couple of months when you first setup your system so you get to know how much dust your system is collecting, if it is too much then move it (ie. move it to your desk or lift it off the ground). Once you then know how much dust your system is collecting, schedule cleaning as needed.

Oh, almost forgot that I also have to warranty my new Bitspower Dual D5 Mod Top Extreme - POM Version as it came from FrozenCPU.com with damaged threads. Anyone that's interested in the Bitspower Dual D5 Mod top and Mod Top 150, https://www.dropbox.com/s/agdkxnq8w2h5dn8/Bitspower%20Upgrade%20Kit%20and%20Dual%20D5%20Mod%20Top.wmv if you are going to get this setup.. do not use the M3x8mm screws, get some M3x12mm and save yourself some pain as this is the size Bitspower should have shipped with the 150 Mod Top.

Now calling my system JINX, as I already got a faulty CPU 4 mths ago.

This is my 1st ever attempt at building a PC. I use it mainly for gaming and music production. I plan to keep modding, and I'm open to any creative advice or ideas. My next task as you will see from my panel mock up in these pictures is to create a bigger window. Please share any tips or knowledge you might have before I go and destroy my side panel. There are currently no LEDs in my system and therefore there's no internal lighting. To be honest I love awesome builds with crazy lights to look at, but to sit next to one while gaming, or to have so many lights flashing in the background when streaming movies to my PS3 in the dark, well it's just not for me. I am planning to put some natural light cathodes in with an on/off switch at some point, after the window mod probably. Thanks very much for looking wink.gif

- Gigabyte UD5H-Z77
- Intel 3770k Ivybridge Processor clocked @ 4.5Ghz with Intel Water Cooler
- 16GB Samsung Green RAM with Blue Heatsinks and Corsair AirFlow RAM Cooler (Overkill I Know)
- EVGA GTX 670 4GB
- Corsair AX850
- ESI Maya 44xte Audio Production Sound Card
- 256GB OCZ Vertex 4 SSD
- 1.5TB WD Caviar Black HDD
- Samsung Bluray Drive
- Bit Feinx Spectre Pro Fans (1x200mm front intake, 1x120mm PWM Push exhaust on rear rad, 2x120mm top exhaust)

.
Full view of case prior to creating a stencil for my planned window mod. Never done this before, just seen pics of other attempts. Some look awesome, some not, I figured there's nothing to it, but to do it. Here we go.


I have carried my Black, White & Blue theme through to my desktop wallpaper.


I got 2 pre-braided Bit Fenix Alchemy USB Cables and the pre-braided NZXT Front Panel Connection Cables. I didn't want to try braiding myself yet, I don't have the tools or workspace for it.


Custom painted PCI brackets. Custom painted Corsair AirFlow RAM cooler fan Blades. Custom painted PSU fan grill.
Stenciled outline of side panel.
Removed window, edging and latches from side panel.
This is where I went wrong, I flipped the panel to stencil the window forgetting it's shifted slightly to one side.
Used scalpel to cut out the window.
As you see I had to flip the mock up over to get the window where it should be.
So I had to add new markers for the latches to this side of the cardboard.
I tried a few different ideas as I went, using different sized curves but in the end decided that long curves didn't reveal enough of the tech. So decided to go with this shape for the window. This window design give what I believe to be the best internal view, and keeps the drive bays hidden. I have decided to mount my SSD on the white area behind the front intake fan, and to put my HDD up in one of the drive bays so that I can remove the remaining HDD cage. Allowing for better airflow, until I put a model Storm Trooper or a cuddly penguin inside :)

Looking forward to your input smile.gif

looks good, i'm starting to love the white inside, I should have done that before and now that I see how the system looks with a white bitfenix spectre 200m inside, I'm sold on it! Very nice rig you have there! Anyone have an extra NZXT white braided led that would want to trade for my blue led's? biggrin.gif

Your system looks really awesome!
And for your 1st ever attempt at building a PC the cable management is great too! wink.gif
But I would not cut out the lower right of the side panel... I mean, do you really want to see that blank white spot between the 200mm fan and the HDDs? wink.gif
BTW my first System didn't look that clean and I will put up some Pics of my 600t when it's finished . smile.gif
Sorry for my bad english wink.gif
