PC-V354 with H70 (No case modification)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 




I don't know, I just felt like sharing. I tried to manage the cables the best I could. The airflow is great. The Silenx fans keep everything pretty quiet. I managed to get all the fans hooked up to the fan controller without going directly over the motherboard.

I was actually pretty disappointed with the radiator mount, it pulls the front panel in slightly, not really noticeable but it's leaning in a little bit.

Other Components:

ASUS Rampage III Gene
Core i7 970
24GB G.Skill DDR3-1333 Ripjaws
Intel 80GB X25-M G2
2 x 1TB Barracuda 7200.12 ST31000528AS (Raid 1)
Seasonic SS-460FL
Sony DVD Burner

I really want to add this card: http://tinyurl.com/26zxdwo

Spec'd out the total comes to $2,841.40. (Including everything but my monitor)

Not too shabby, the first I've seen. Folks don't typically go with the bottom 120 mount because the tubes aren't long enough, which begs the question, why isn't the modding scene as welcoming to the H70 as it is the H50?

Mounting the radiator to the case by replacing the tubes with a longer one (include a reservoir in the loop for pain free filling) will reduce the bending of case.

Also, I'm not sure how I feel about Silenx fans on radiators.

Thanks for sharing!

Absolutely.

Total I paid (again without including my monitor) was $1045.71.

I also got the 80GB SSD and the 2 1TB from Intel for absolutely free. When you consider the deals I got from Intel I saved $965.13 just through Intel alone.

I work in retail BTW.
