Corsair 800D - Need some tips and tricks

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi,

A few months ago I bought the 800D case and so far its a great case. I'm using a custom watercooling with triple radiator on top. I've got a few questions though.

1- How do you manage your cables on this case ? I dont see any hooks/holes/thingy where you attach your zip-tie so I tied all my cables together but nothing holds them to the back of the motherboard tray.

2- Where can I put my 30cm UV cold cathode so that I have the glowing effect on my 3 top fans (I'm using 3 Gelid UV green fans) and my tubes ? and how many sticks do I need. I currently have 2 sticks but if needed I can buy more. I've seen some people use 4 sticks. (Also is there a way to get rid of the PCI bracket on the back ?)

3- I read somewhere that if I use my C300 SSD in the hotswappable bay, it will be running on SATA II 3Gbps instead of SATA III 6Gbps. Is that true ?

(edit)4- Where/how do you mount a T-Virus res in a 800D ? Does it need screw ? (also is it a good res ? )

That's about it for now Thanks

Answer 2: Its just a case of experimenting dude. Cnt help here much myself.

Answer 3: Yes it is true. You cannot mount your ssd in there if you want 6gbps. I wont when I get my 300C. Ita going in the bottom so I can plug it in properly and have it run at 6gbps.

1- you can use those anchors that forsaken told you about, or adjustable clamps
Anchors
Adjustable clamp

2- well I've seen people putting them on the door one vertical one horizontal, check out the corsair obsidian thread. Check my sig for link.

3- no you will not see 6gbps, the hdd plane is only sata3 comp not sata6. Corsair is working on sata6 header that you will be able to buy. But what you could do is remove the header (4screws) and just attach the sata cable to the drive and a sata6 connection.

For Question 1, get some of these bad boys:
http://en.mdpc-x.com/mdpc-cable-assemblies.htm

For question 2, you can mount your cold cathode up top, theres enough room between your RAD and the side of the case to do this.

For question 3, yes. The onboard SATA in the hotswaps is only SATA II and is NOT SATA III.

Furthermore, you can check my pics below of my build log showing how those cable clamps work out. Granted, those aren't finished pics, but it give you a good idea.

The drive won't be exceeding Sata II speeds anyways, why worry about it?
