Guess im first up. Little messy in the back but I know where everything is. Specs are in the drop down. Also fans on the nh-d14 have been changed to corsair h100 fans.


Little update for mine with h100 fans and new ram. Sorry corsair guys I could not find vengeance pro reds anywhere near me. Tiger direct Canadacomputers and a few other stores only stocked the silvers. I'm disappointed and had to get some red Patriot viper 3. Also added a 512gb ssd for games, hidden in the back tho.

Corsair should make the vengeance pros come with all colors just like there fans. It's just a separate piece anyways...

Busy redoing mine. Clothing off the hole on the bottom of the case. But here is mine for now.

I do like the carbon wrap Kov... I've got some of that stuff lying and I was looking to wrap something on the case too. But was too impatient to get the rig running

Start my work with it this weekend as I want to close off the bottom of the case. Going to use some acrylic covered in carbon

no im started but i have 3 other builds so i can take my time with this but having a evga 780 and a 4930k processor sure makes the waiting hard...;):
whats taking time is moving the psu outward 1/4 inch,cutting the 2 bay 5.25 drive cage down to 1 1/4 bays and modding the top and front of the case.
theres 10 different pieces of sheet metal being used in this build and doing all the cutting and bending by hand.
time and energy is very slim so its been small steps so far.

I love this build. I thought I was the only one who mounted their H100i radiator vertically!

Yeah being seeing that a lot but my 7970 matrix would not allow me to do that. One thing I am finding is that a lot of people are putting 3 x 120mm in front.
My acrylic, carbon and some of the nuts and bolts have arrived

Been thinking about filling mine with 120mm cougars to match my gpu. Currently using spectre pros as they move more air than the stock fans and do it at about half the volume. Plus I think they look better aesthetically.

Kovoet 02-09-2014 09:51 AM

Right I have now closed the bottom of the case now and why the bottom of the Corsair Carbide 540 comes with a opened bottom I do not know. Changed to a lot of red in the case. My AX850 now has red wiring, the SP120mm fans now have the red clip ons
