Hello everyone, let me take a moment to introduce myself. I am known by Sebar on the forums and have started a nice little project called PirateMod to keep track of my builds and other computer/modding related things I do. I am calling this mod project "Close Quarters" because I will be cramming in two 280mm Alphacool radiators into a Corsair 350D mATX case and as you can imagine space will be very tight inside the case. I am still undecided on a color scheme for this build but I have narrowed it down to either Jade and Copper of Black and Copper. This mod will feature a full copper faceplate for the 350D and 10 mm copper tubing inside the case. The hardware that will be going into the case is as follows: Intel 2600K CPUAsus Maximus IV Gene Z Gen 3Corsair Vengeance low profile RAMUndecided on final video Card, currently I have an MSI R6950 but think I will need to replace this with a short PCB cardCorsair AX850 PSUKingston HyperX SSD (120GB)Water cooling components includeAlphacool XT45 280 mm radiatorAlphacool UT60 280 mm radiatorAlphacool XP3 light CPU water blockSwiftech MCP655 pump with Bitspower mod kit and D5 Mod Pump Top V2Black acetyl push fittings for 10 mm OD rigid tubingBitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 80 or 150 depending on space available.Now for the good stuff. Unboxing the 350D. Here are some initial glamour shots. Here are some teardown pictures. I may end up using this MNPCTECH 280 rad grill I got from Bill Owen. Here I am removing the brushed aluminum from the front panel. Here is the parts order that I received from Performance PCS. I was messing around in Blender and came up with a couple rough renderings of the case in Black and in Jade. Bull3t hooked me up with some excellent renders. Now it is time for the real modding to begin. As you can imagine 45 mm and 60 mm 280 mm radiators will not fit inside this case without some modification. The first thing that had to go was the 5.25 in drive days. This allowed me to get the UT60 in the front but the top radiation was just too thick to allow me to install fans inside the case. Here is a test fit with both rads, motherboard, and my bench PSU. I had to reposition the motherboard to allow for the top mounted rad and fans. I lose the top PCI mounting point on the case but since this case has 5 PCI slots and I only really need 4 that is not a big deal. I cut a spare PCI cover to fill in the gap left in the IO cutout after moving the motherboard down. I still have to drill and tap holes for the motherboard standoffs to mount the motherboard.
