Very cool build! the coolest thing to me is how not over the top your white LED's are. Not super bright. But just dim enough that you can see the components. but I have two questions. #1: What are your custom LED strips from. I've never seen such a white light LED in a computer before. and #2: What desk is that. It looks awfully cool!

Otherwise it looks very solid. very nice pictures also.

The LED strips are from Amazon and are magnetic. Here's a link. The pictures make the light look a little blue but they are actually pretty white in person. https://www.amazon.com/Tingkam-RGB-Attached-Controller-Generation/dp/B01HXPPUR2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1490211990&sr=8-1&keywords=tingkam+led+magnet

The desk is actually a kitchen countertop from ikea put on top of some file cabinets I had laying around. It's the 74 inch one. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10301149/#/30301148

Oh very cool! thanks for the info. I'll definitely be using those strips when I have the chance!

That's one sweet looking build. I like the lighting and color combination. What kind of mouse pad are you using?

Killer deals on some of those parts. And I thought I'd done well getting a 6600K at $195 (open box, no less).

How come you didn't mount the radiator up top?

Also getting cooler air in from the bottom of the case.

MDLE14 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

I thought about it but it doesn't make a difference thermally and I wanted to keep the symmetry of the 3 fans on top.

LaputaCake 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

Fair enough. Nice setup you got.

MDLE14 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Thanks!

How did you get the 140mm fans mounted up top? I thought the 303 only supported 120mm fans.

MDLE14 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

Sorry that's supposed to be 120mm. edited*

I've heard that the corsair mousepad comes with a chemical smell out of the box. Have you had any issues like that?

MDLE14 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Personally I haven't noticed any chemical or rubber smells coming from the mouse pad.

smitty05 1 point 12 months ago

Mine smelled horribly that I ordered the Pecham extended mousepad. I now use the Corsair for my wife's laptop as I like the solid black of the Pecham. I left the Corsair mousepad in my garage for a week after my wife sprayed it and it's perfectly fine now.

Hey I couldn't quite see clearly how you installed the corsair h100i at the bottom. Are you still able to use the push and pull method?

MDLE14 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Hi. As of right now, I have two fans that come with radiator both pulling air through the radiator and into the case.

Battlefield 1 point 12 months ago

Any reason why H100i is on bottom rather than top?

Is the INWIN 303 logo blue on the case with the LED?

MDLE14 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Yes it is

Seeing this now, it really is a shock how RAM prices and gpu prices have skyrocketed.

aorozco570 1 point 2 months ago

Great build, I have the same case too, just waiting for the parts to arrive. Btw, your desk looks good, I need one of a similar size, could you note the dimentions of it please?
