Just pulled the trigger on a Corsair 800D, any essentials I should get? - Page 2

This is a great idea. A lot of them suck but you can find twin 80mm ones that are quiet and pump in a lot of air. If you are not water cooling yet, this is essential.

I recommend 2x high powered 140mm fans, mid level intake, and exhaust upgrade. Recommend is the AeroCool Black Shark, or for more cash, high CFM NoiseBlockers.

The hard drive bay fans consist of another 140 MM fan, and 120 MM fan, recommend good replacements for those. There are NO ceiling fans for exhaust included and you have room for 3. If you were going for ultra intake, you can switch the roof to intake, and definitely get a nice high powered rear exhaust 140mm fan.

Be very careful with the Corsair 1-to-4 way sata cable that goes on the Hot Swap bay. I broke it pulling it off one time. Its really cheap.

Try and use a bottom mounting style PSU, like my Ultra x4 1200w on sale and also consider placing a fan so its pushing air to the rear, inside your case like sitting on the CD-ROM bay facing the rear or even better on a graphics card if it has a back plate.

If you are going for water cooling, and want to do a 140.1 radiator, it won't fit internally on the exhaust port, the IO shield port area gets in the way, and fits moderately okay on the back of the tower.

The roof/ceiling can fit a 120.3 (3 x 120mm fan radiator) or a 120.4 with 120 without an exhaust/intake but its really dicey. Also consider cutting the side panel window for 1,2,or even 3 80mm or 120mm fans for better air intake. Especially if you are keeping the GTX 480s on air, and the roof on exhaust.

What I did with my case was take one of the drive bays from my previous case, antec 902, and used it as my front air intake. Only downside is that I lost 3 x 5.25" and my antec case no longer has a drive bay lol

Be sure to replace all your stock fans, as I believe they're not that great


I really need to put watercooling in this case, but I'm waiting to upgrade cpu / mb before then.

Been drooling over it for far too long. Should be a nice upgrade to my antec. Any suggestions on some essentials to take advantage of this bad boy? Lights, fan controls, dilithium crystals?
a second mortgage, those things arent cheap

D: Why'd you shoot an 800D!? Essentials!? You need a new case now! D:

Just kidding... XD

The 800D is pretty much only good for watercooling as far as I am told.

This is incorrect. It's great at watercooling, and for the noise level, it's very good at air cooling as well. It will not beat the brute-force aircool champs like the HAF or Antec 900/1200 series, from an aircooling perspective (well, not without some serious mods) but it'll be much quieter than they are and still cool your stuff effectively unless you're running a pair of 590s or 6990s or something. Then you'd want to add those top fans as intakes.

Made for water for sure. You can put a trip rad in the top and chill that i7 and 480 with ease.

Woot. Just got in. Think it will matter that my SSD isn't in the sata 1 instead of 0, if not then is there an easy way to mound that ssd in the bottom tray?

The 800D is just begging to go water if you haven't done so. If you are new to water, get a RASA RX360 kit + a gpu block. the 360mm rad fits perfectly at the top of case and the RAsa kit has everything you need to get the cpu on water, add your gpu block, distilled water and your choice of biocide (silver, pt nuke, etc.)

Ok...definately having heat issues here. GPU's skyrocketed to 105 while benching. Fans were at 79% and loud. Gonna try using the top fans as intakes and maybe using the rear fan that came with the case as a side fan on the gpu's....still not sure how I can make it stay put there but I figure it's worth a shot.


BTW the h50 should be pulling air in from the back into the case right?
