  1. Hi the upgrade to X570/5600x & 3080 was not that labour intensive I did put alot of labor into making my amd bracket though the one that you can order does not sit well because of the way the liquid cooler is mounted. I used a 3dprinted Intel backplate with the bracket I made. I also had some luck with a 3dprinted bracket but it didn't wold up as well as I would like. You have to use a 3080 that isn't tall though and the evga cards seem to be one of the only ones like that except the ftw3 it's too big
  2. They are not horrible maxes out at around 74deg but could be quieter, I need to get a better software to control the cpu fan because the motherboard doesn't have very precise control of the 3000rpm noctua in using. I am getting a pair of 120mm fans I'm going to deshroud the gpu and install them I will post with the result
  3. nice job glad to see the ventus fits as well. i was tempted to try the 3080 ventus but couldn't get one. i am in the process of taking off the outer shroud on my card and putting 2x 120mm full size fans in it will post in my thread how it turns out. i have plans to watercool it once the new kraken g12 is out
  4. I plan to use an asetek pump the round style with the clips sticking out I am waiting for the new nzxt kraken g12 adapter to come out because the old one requires alot of modification to work on the 3080. I will then attach that pump to the stock rad I purchased a square old style corsair h110 hydro to put on the original 1080ti since its a drop in replacement then I can use it in another system while keeping the stock rad from the ONE https://www.nzxt.com/product-overview/kraken-g12 [ame] [/ame]
  5. Thanks it definitely took a fair bit of work. Are there any plans to offer replacement parts for the one in the future. i would much rather just buy the new rgb stripped front panel if it was available
  6. I would say that card is probably the max not just because of the length but most of the 3080 cards have a custom pcb that is too tall to fit at least in the C1 it was extremely tight. It overhangs the original gpu mount on the bottom quite a bit but the heatsink perfectly rests on it so worked out well that way. The only cards I considered were the 3 lower evga cards and PNY. The ftw3 im pretty sure wouldn't fit evga is ok with watercooling which I will also be doing. You dont need to take the whole chassis out but I did have to take the bottom off so pretty close since you have to take the front and back panels off to access the screws on the bottom
  7. Hi everyone I have been following some of the threads and I thought I would let everyone know what I have been able to install in the first gen C1 that had the 7700k/1080ti Asus Rog strix x570i motherboard Amd 5600x 750watt corsair psu Evga xc3 ultra rtx 3080 Some rgb strips as well as rgb ring on the top fan which I swapped for a noctua 3000rpm Once nzxt brings out the new kraken g12 I plan to watercooled the new gpu by refilling the loop with an asetek compatible pump Temps are 50deg idle on cpu 75deg under benchmark, gpu is 38deg idle 75deg benchmark I was also able to hardwire my Oculus wireless adapter in using an m. 2 pcie adapter and installing the card where the bottom hdd tray would be. I welded some fender washers to the original corsair bracket to make the amd adapter but there are 3d printable options as well as a corsair option but i didn't like how it interfered with the hoses. the only things i couldn't get to work with the new board is the lights on the front of the case but that may be a driver issue i havent been able to get any of my lights to sync with aura sync. I plan to add some WS2812B rgb led's to make the front panel lights rgb & addressable. There also is a length issue with some of the displayport connections are moved on the gpu so not all of them reach you can still have at least 2+ displayport and 1 hdmi on the front i used a tiny hdmi extension like the ones that come with a firestick for this so i could use the front hdmi to get freesync on my tv. i imagine you coould get them all working but i only needed 2. I spent alot of time on the pump bracket and the htc wigig card if you stuck with intel most of this would be a pretty easy upgrade and its not a bad chassis to work on. only 8 main screws to get to just the frame. I really think corsair should sell the case with at least cpu cooling. It would sell like crazy even at a premium Here are some links and pics to some of the stuff I used. https://app.photobucket.com/u/kiwikewl/a/48546629-b9e2-4155-95b8-36fa8b39a566 For this led ring I cut the corners off and hot glued it to the bottom of the noctua fan https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07BGWLH14/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_nI-ZFb96Y25SG?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 I used this adapter to plug in my htc vive wireless adapter https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B089Q1FKNW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_wJ-ZFbCVXHD5J?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 I used this extender to go from the htc vive wireless and put it through one of the stock motherboard wifi antenna plugs so I can attach it as if it were stock built in on the back https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B081BGQQXC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_zL-ZFbA2C1DM1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 I used this pci riser cable it works but is longer than it needs to be https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07K6TXRK6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_JQ-ZFb79BVP64?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 hdmi extension I didnt use this one as i had one from my firestick but gives you the idea https://www.amazon.ca/Connector-VCE-Standard-Converter-Connection/dp/B07VJ663LW/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=fire+stick+hdmi+extension&qid=1607466049&sr=8-8 https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07Y2PZTQ5/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_NR-ZFbMNJ26YX?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07M63H81H/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_2R-ZFbRRKXXR8?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B08HR55YB5/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_eS-ZFbRYDA87Z?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
