Description

Hope you guys enjoy this little refresh. I personally get tired of looking at the same thing over and over, not that it was anything wrong with the Corsair Air 240. I will actually be using it again for a future build I have plan, for when Ryzen comes out. This are the same part from the original Dare Devil, I just added an extra fan. The front cover has enough space to mount fans at the sacrifice of your dust filter. I had no choice because of Ram clearance. My H100i would't fit on the top of the case only by a couple of milliliters :( Over all everything went smoothly. The third fan on the front of the case ( first one from the bottom) you might think it has no purpose. Well it does, it is cooling my 2 Segeate 2tb and PSU cables hahaha. Overclocked to 4.5ghz at 1.290v.

Your baller graphics card kept you from mounting the fans on the inside D:

I'm a big fan of the Mini C case. +1 for the clean build!

Thanks! It almost fit, only if had a couple more mililiters hehehe. I really like now after building in it.

Very nice mate! Wish the Define S came with that PSU cover.

I hear you! But you can make a custom one that can potentially look decent. I looked a video in YouTube. A guy was modding the s. Came out pretty good. If i find it, I'll send you the link.

looks good. somehow funnycause it is so small but has a normal layout so the gpu looks huge! nice build 1+!

Thanks, I love how it houses everything just perfect. If I would've had a different gpu, I would've have definitely been able to put the fans in the inside of the case. This strix is super long. I also dont have any sag

I can only image how tough it must have been to organize the cables in back. I was using the drive cage at the bottom too and it was a hassle. +1 for making it all work out nicely.

Thank god some one can relate hehehehe. I think I spent roughly 35-40 min trying to make everything work lol. Thanks!

No problem. I'm going back in this weekend and redo them all over. This time condensing to 1 hdd and removing that cage altogether. wish me luck. XD

Very clean build, gj on routing those cooler tubes out of the way so we can see those beautiful Vengeance LED's too, a very nice touch.

Thanks, bended to the point i though it was going to leak but didn't

H100i didn't fit because of the ram modules which aren't low profile? I was planning to use trident z rgb which are 44mm tall instead of 50mm (vengeance Led) and Silent Loop 240 on the top. I hope they will fit

I think with that 10mm you'll be ok. That's about what i was missing. Just make sure you save your receipts in case you need to return it.

I just wanted to tell You taht a friend of mine could not mount the radiator on upper position because of ram clearance but he removed a part of the Vengeange led heatsink so to lower the ram height. The upper part is just only embed and can come away by pulling it as the following picture: https://i0.wp.com/iam.zolkorn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/corsair-vengeance-led-6.jpg The remainig heatsink part will be more than sufficinet for cooling purpose but the led effect will change so it's up to You to decide what's best for You. Best Regards ;)

Thanks man, I tried it. Wasn't happy with the way they look without it. I I've see it top mounted in person looks nice my i like my end result better makes the inside looks fuller if you will. Thanks though!

Looking at your computer lit up makes me want to play Mass Effect, strangely. The red and black with orange LED combination I guess. Absolutely beautiful setup.

Really? Wow, that's an interesting reaction. All the led's are red but the led strip on the top next to the fans. That one is actually white, just to give some sort of clarity to the inside. Thanks though!

+1. Nice clean build with strong theme and attention to detail. Great job o the cable management. Do you still have your front dust filter installed? Also, How much space do you have between the GPU and Radiator?

  • 38 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks, I do not have the dust filter. Although I can still put it over the fans and with the front cover it stays in place but it will only make it harder on the fans to push air in. Ill just have dust it more often ( not that I mind) I don't have a measuring tool at hand now but I'll say a little over half an inch. Is not a lot, take an average adult index finger's width. That's the space in between both. Hope it helped.

I have the same GPU and a NZXT Kraken X62. I have ordered the Define C Mid and was hoping that they would fit inside. Might just have to send it back and get the Define S. How are your temps?

  • 38 months ago
  • 1 point

Well I have the mini c is an mATX. Yours is a midtower full atx so i think you will be ok. My temps are pretty good. Cpu under load is 64 c overclock to 4.6 and gpu doesnt go above 69 c overclocked

what about temperatures and dust comming in, because you were forced to put fans out?

  • 38 months ago

is it worth it? because im planning the same gpu in this case...

  • 38 months ago

Temps are pretty good gpu under load overclocked to 2100 ghz is 68c max and cpu ocerclocked to 4.6 under load 63c. Haven't get around the dust part yet since i only have about a week since i put it together. My guess is just dust more often which i dont mind. It actually help fans push more air through the rad without the filter. Also my intake fans are set to 60% speed and my exhaust to 40%. Is very quited. Even under load since my temps dont go above 70c they dont ramp up. I have them set if temperatures go above 70c to ramp up to 70%

I had the same problem with my nzxt 62x kraken. I have the same graphics card, so I had to place the fans on the outer side of the case like yours. I was thinking of making it a pull config. by placing the radiator in the front and having the fans on the inside, but I don't know if it would even work out. Haven't tried it yet or even know if it would be fine cooling wise.
