The wire management system does look awesome!


I thought the case was too big too. I wish they release the Corsair 650D sooner. It is the mid-tower version of the 800D!

So basically I'm okay at the moment, though I should bite the bullet in the near future and water cool it regardless. I mean I don't really mind dishing out the extra $100 or so if it's worth it. The only reason I'm not Overclocking at the moment is that I know NOTHING about it and I'm scared I'm gonna fry something like my CPU or something!

I thought people bought 800D for the looks? There are better choices for watercooling than the 800D. Anyways, you don't need to watercool, or need the h70 since you are just gonna run on stock. You can look into getting a mid range aftermarket heatsink for your cpu if your temperatures are too high, but for now since you are running on stock, you are fine with what you got.

Go all Gentle Typhoon AP-15's.

3 up top, 1 on the bottom, one on the mid-plate/false floor, 1 out back (2 with H70), and maybe even modding the side panel for a fan.

(bottom/midplate/rear all intake, top exhaust...if you add a side panel fan, intake naturally) H70 would work out nicely...fans in push pull, but intaking. (the rad warmed air will be whisked away by the exhausts up top)

Or, buy an NZXT Phantom...great cable management, designed for air...can be modded for water.

I already bought it lol so I might as well use the damn thing, I'm sure it'll be fine I guess I'll just have to water cool it (Though I know nothing about this topic either which is sorta why I was hoping to get away with just fans for air flow )

Doesn't get dusty at all. *shrug* I don't disagree that the case was built with WC in mind, but at this time he wants to Aircool it so there's no sense in trying to push him into WC, but rather provide him with info on aircooling the case. I have an H50 on mine, and let's face it, an H50 is no better than a GOOD aircooler at temps, plus you still need a fan on the RAD anyway. It's a half-assed WC solution. Plus, WC'ing is not that easy for people to get into. Takes a lot of research and trial and error for most people the first couple of times.

I think the guy you're speaking with does not suggest the OP modify his fans NOR does he suggest the OP do watercooling.

Pantyhose makes for great fan filtration btw.

I have zero dust buildup in my case...with a total of 8 fans.
(ok...so maybe there's a couple specs or 2 here and there)
