So i have been participating less these days due to work and at the same time working hard on finding a new home for my system. For those who have seen my previous worklog knows that i have been using the TJ07 murdermod setup for awhile now, something like 3years + or maybe 4. I am starting to feel that the murdermod though being a very nice case is starting to show its age as features such as Hotswap bays, USB3.0, cable management holes etc... were not available so I had a long hard thought about what my next case should be and among those shortlisted were:
Digital storm Aventum
Murdermod MKII (yet to launch)
While i will not run thru one by one why the 800D was eventually selected, a lot had to do with product availability, Dimension and if it could fit my Airplex Modularity 480. One thing is for sure, absolutely no one on the net (as far as i know) has a work log that use a Corsair 800D and an Airplex 480. It looks like I am the only one, and it took many hours of reading and searching to confirm if the rad will fit the top of the 800D, there were a couple whom used the Airplex 360. So there was additional risk to take to find out if the 480 would the 800D fit length wise.
I was also getting a little tired with inverted ATX style setup as cable routing is twice harder than normal ATX due to the need for cable extension, to be honest not many photos were taken throughout the build so i will just post what i have, for now i will start with some newly sleeved PCI-E cables
