Sheer beauty. I'm a former NCASE M1 owner myself and this is a VERY powerful system and super clean build.

If you are looking at the PSU with the fan side facing you, the hole is on the top right side. You can see the cable coming out there. I cut a small square using a diagonal side cutter.

I recommend NOT rewiring the fan at all because PSUs have a capacitor inside and even after you unplug the PSU the capacitors still hold a charge until you touch it and ground out the connection. It can potentially injure you very badly. I'm an electrician so that's why I was messing with.

The default Corsair fan is a 3-pin, 3-wire, non-PWM fan. All three wires are black so I could not figure out which one was which.

The Noctua is a 4-pin, 4-wire PWM fan. The four wires are different colors. Yellow (+12 VoltVDC), Black(Ground), Green(Sensing), and Blue(Control).

I basically kept switching the wires around until I ruined the three-pin connector inside the PSU. So my only other option was to buy another PSU or replace the fan. At the time these Corsair PSUs were sold out everywhere and I didn't want to pay another $190.00 for a new one.

Thanks so much! People like you and me that do video editing are finding it hard to live without the read/write speeds, the fact there are no moving parts (zero noise), vibration resistance, and overall reliability of SSD's.

Inside the Corsair SF600 is a crappy Corsair branded 90mm two-pin voltage controlled fan. The Noctua, of course, is a 4-pin PWM fan. What I did was carefully disconnect the 4-pin connector from the Noctua fan and replaced it with the two-pin connector from the default Corsair 90mm fan. The idea was to turn the Noctua fan into a voltage controlled fan by only using the black (black is "hot"/energized conductor) and yellow wire (the "neutral"/"common" conductor) from the Noctua fan and cap off the other two wires. It didn't work for some reason. Every time the SF600 PSU sent voltage to the Noctua fan, it would spin up for two seconds, stop for three seconds, spin up again for two seconds...repeat. So I was forced to either replace the default fan or connect the Noctua to the motherboard and I am far happier with the second option.

As for the CPU cooler, I found a video of another guy who did the same thing but provided far better tips:

How to bend the Noctua L12S to fit the Ghost S1 by Louqe

Here's the original video of him bending it on initial installation.

Hope that helps should you decide to get this case.

I originally had three fans in the case. One on the side and two on the bottom.

I only removed the fan directly under the GPU. I only need two 120mm fans in the case. One is mounted on the side directly in front of the Cryorig C1 and the other is mounted on the bottom front of the case to help push hot air out the top quickly.

I found that placing the 120mm fan directly under the GPU slightly chokes the GPU because much of it blows directly onto the PSU shroud.

No issues at all.

I should really update this build with more photos. Since this original upload I have removed the 120mm fan under the GPU and gained 2 degrees cooler GPU temps.

Any other questions ask me. I'd be glad to help any way I can.

If it goes outside the logo dry it up immediately. Do it very slowly and deliberately so you don't smear it over another part of the shroud.

If the there's acrylic that has already dried outside the Corsair logo, use rubbing alcohol or an ammonia solution to rub it off without ruining the plastic on the shroud. I prefer ammonia but the fumes are more dangerous for your lungs and can burn the liquid in your eyes so please wear a mask, latex gloves and eye protection if you plan to use ammonia. Just use latex gloves if you use rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol).

I advise taking a toothpick and dipping it into the acrylic, then let it drip off the toothpick one tiny drop at a time. It's time consuming but it gets the job done right the first time.

If you plan to paint it all white, you can always go back and fill in the Corsair logo with black acrylic, but the recess in the logo will not be as deep if you decide to paint it. Good luck!

Thank you!

The Corsair logo is is stamped so it sits a couple millimeters deep into the shroud. So filled in the logo with white acrylic using a toothpick and a very fine brush used to paint tiny figurines. I used the toothpick to carefully add tiny drops of acrylic into the Corsair logo until it was full. The fine brush was used to smooth, flatten and even out the acrylic without getting any outside the Corsair logo. Took me about 30 minutes to fill it in, and I let it set to dry and harden overnight.

My goodness I don't know where to start. Congrats of featured build! I don't know how to heap praise so I'm just gonna list them to make it easier:

  1. Pictures...and good ones! Thank you!
  2. Cable management is A++++++++++++
  3. Very clever fan placement solution for the extra long radiator. I'm assuming you drilled new holes to secure the bottom part of the radiator since you had a picture of the drill.
  4. I'm a believer in the MagLev fans but I love the NZXT fans in the front.
  5. Drool worthy hardware.
  6. RGB lights look balanced and the lighting options at your disposal are versatile.

Well done!!!
