Default Corsair Obsidian 1000D Build Log/How to Guide

Greetings fellow RGBz Addicts

Still waiting on a few parts, but for now I have enough to begin.

Spec list so far is.
  1. Corsair Obsidian 1000d
  2. Asus ROG Strix Z370-F Gaming
  3. Intel i7 8700k
  4. Corsair MP500 M.2 (240gb for system)
  5. Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32gb
  6. Corsair Commander Pro (making 2 with the included 1000D edition Commander Pro)
  7. Corsair LL140mm Fans x 3
  8. Corsair LL120mm Fans x 10
  9. Corsair RM1000i
  10. Corsair PSU Premium Braided Cable Kit in Black
  11. EVGA GTX 1080 SC

For now this build will be cooled using an AIO, more than likely the Corsair H115i Pro, up in the top of the case.

My plan is to get the main system up and running and looking good, and then add in the ITX system. Same again, get it up and running and looking good (undecided on second system specs yet).

Until the 2nd system is gathered all together, I will vertical mount the main systems GPU, so you guys get to see how it all fits together, along with any pitfalls it may create.

Once the second system is fitted I will then be heading towards a full Custom loop on both systems. It will be my first Custom loop, so you guys that are as wary as I am, of those first steps......... Please follow the adventure :).

Here is my concept install Diagram to give you all an idea of my plan








My next post in this thread will be the case itself, what it contains, and what it is supplied with. Anyone with an interest in the case and needs information, please do ask. I will try my hardest to get photos up with explanations for any queries that may arise.


Once the case details have been sorted, I will get the Motherboard installed and get the OS on.. oce done I will begin the Front Fan installation, (8xLL120mm) along with the cable arrangement from fans to rear Cable Management Area, and whats needed to travel such a distance.. Extensions for both Fan Power and Fan RGB are going to be needed. 16x cables all in.. Should be fun!

The Case it's self.












Fan Tray Lock

Locked



Unlocked



Fan Trays



The fan Trays can be easily removed by pressing the little levers down while sliding out the trays



Rear Doors.



Which can also be slid off of their hinges in the same way the main glass doors can







The Glass doors come with a small bag with a single screw in it. one on each door.. once doors are in place you can use the screw in the top hinges each side to stop the doors being easily removed





Main System Vertical GPU mount.



It replaces the horizontal mount by removing the circled Screws. will go into more detail on this in a later post.




Supplied Accessories





ZipTies/10 Corsair Velcro Straps (WINNER!!) and a Sata cable for powering the Case's front IO and Sails Logo without iCue, lights up in white only. will cover this in detail in a later post.



4x PWM Fan extensions/4x Temperature Probes and 2x LED RGB cables, all for use with the Commander Pro.. again. more on this in a later post.



Supplied Screws/Bolts/Stand Off's











Again, feel free to ask questions.. anything specific you need to know?.. just Holla :)

Do you mind if I ask what tool you're using to create your wiring diagram up above? I'd love to start creating some similar diagrams for wiring the fans in my 1000D. Thanks.

That really is old school. It looks great.

For some reason, I thought maybe there was a Corsair utility that included creating wiring diagrams for use with iCUE. Or that iCUE itself had support for such a thing.

I would think such a utility would be pretty useful for iCUE or Link (or whatever) users. Plug all the planned corsair devices into the utility and let it offer up diagrams and options and instructions for connecting everything properly.
