Corsair C70 Mini-Build Log

Recommended Posts

I snapped a few photos as I was swapping hardware from the Lian Li Lancool K62 into the C70.  Nothing fancy here, but thought I'd share.

 

The virgin case exterior and interior

First up, install radiator and steal the rear OEM 120mm fan and put it down in the bottom of the case;

Better make sure the power supply still fits after installing the bottom fan (fortunately I was in luck);

How to control all those fans?  The one major drawback to the C70 is that it only has three 5.25" drive bays.  So I modified my NZXT Sentra Mesh fan controller and got it to fit inside the case in the bay behind the factory power, usb, front audio header module;

Kinda hard to use the fan controller when it's inside...but if you're anything like me it sits at the minimum setting all the time anyway. :lol:

EDIT: Apparently Chrome broke the quick-reply. It now doesn't go away...so I clicked on it twice. :lol:

Motherboard in without any issues.  The C70 has built in stand offs and a centering pin that is actually pretty handy;

And now time for some plumbing;

I love that you're using the UD4. It's by far my favorite motherboard I've ever owned...with the exception of the BIOS issues. :lol: My RAM still won't run properly with XMP enabled.

 

The new UEFI BIOS makes boot times incredibly fast though - check it out if you haven't already!

Hello to my little friends in New Mehico

 

HI. :)

 

Interesting build you got there. I loved the case when I reviewed it -- but I can't say I like the WHITE as much :P

All my gear fits fine - and in fact for a mid-tower it wasn't bad to work in at all;

I appreciate the thought process that went into the top for 120mm or 140mm fan installation, or alternatively most 240mm and many 280mm radiators, but this is but ugly IMHO;

My solution (kind of expensive in retrospect - DemCFilters magnetic fan filters);
