Corsair 800D Cooling Help Request

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I just bought a corsair 800D tower and I was wondering if anyone can help me out with some ideas on how I can go about cooling it. I'm not too sure if I want or need a water cooling system I won't be overclocking it I don't think.
So anyway here are the system specs any thoughts would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Tower: Corsair Obsidian 800D
MoBo: ASUS Crosshair IV Extreme
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban
RAM: Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance 8GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24
Video: XFX Radeon HD 6970 2GB GDDR5
Power: Corsair TX850W 850W CMPSU-850TX
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA3

The 800D is made for watercooling. That's the way to go.

So no chance for straight air? Then would the h70 do the trick stock?
post #5 of 27
Ill be honest, IMO, the airflow in this case to the main body is terrible (though hard drive cooling is pretty good).

Since it has only one inlet as standard, that's kind of what you'd expect. It is definitely designed to have liquid cooling in it.

That said, you're not overclocking so while not great, the airflow should be more than adequate to keep any gear cool easily. I would only look at additional cooling if you decide to OC.

and with this case you will never have to worry about dust, which is nice, on top of that, 3 fans at mid rpm, it should be quiet as a mouse.

The H70 would do the trick.

But...I'm not sure why you would buy such an expensive case for non-overclocked parts without water cooling.

Don't listen to these people.

What you want is several high rpm fans. Three up top, one on the midplate blowing up toaward the mobo, one on the Hotswap HDD cage, 1 on the rear. I advise making the rear into an intake.

My temps are at 24C idle, and 44C while doing some high-end gaming.

You CAN air cool it, Its just most people buy the 800d for its WC abilities, the h70 will work fine but I would recommend spending an extra 30 bux on a rasa kit.

You can also go with the 360 kit if you want to WC your GPUs

Honestly I just really liked the look and the cable management system and all of the reviews were great - aside from the fact that they all say to water cool it -

thing is freak'n huge though!

What possible purpose can that serve? : /

Make the case a noisy dust magnet so you get low numbers on the screen? It wont make any difference unless he OC's it, which isn't on the agenda atm.
