Case Build & Finished Product

From beginning to end, no matter what components are used, the front of the H700i has not changed one bit. Gone are the days of 5.25" bays, which are replaced with full panel cases with subtle hints as to who the maker is.

Everything we used fit without issue. Wiring loops over the top of the motherboard and out of sight, and to the right, the red cover block the view of wires there. The card is almost level, the AIO fit in the front of the chassis, and we see nothing of the PSU and drive cages hidden down below.

The dust shield for the rear I/O spas right into place, and we did not fight the card slots one bit. Sliding the PSU in from the back is easy to accomplish, although we would leave the PSU mounting screws loose until the PSU mounting plate is reattached to the chassis, then finish locking the PSU into place.

A lot of the magic happens behind the motherboard tray. One set of the plastic wire management tracks can be used for the front I/O panel wires as we did, and the innermost tracks can be used for the PSU and fan leads if needed as we have. Some of the wires for the AIO are too short to route through the channels, but the 8-pin lead has a velcro9 strap to hold it in place. Keep in mind too, that if the HDD cage and platform are removed, the PSU can be longer than stated, and there are options on the floor to mount custom water cooling bits.

From this angle, the H700i and the components inside looks even better than when seen straight on. We also love the lack of tint in the tempered glass panel, as we can see where all of the hard earned dollars were spent, and not have to squint or wait for LED lighting to give us a view of the guts.

Once powered, let the light show begin. Everything lights up, including the chassis, and we just have to grab the CUE software to take full advantage of the features. As it sits, the fans are near silent at 31 dB, and the flow is not all that good at the front of the chassis. However, had we left the three fans in, which we reinstalled for airflow testing, the results were much better. Considering all of the tiny holes used for ventilation in the H700i, we feel it is enough to allow users not to boil their components while gaming.

After a year of gaming, Chad caught the OC bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and Chad has had many air and water setups. With a few years of abusing computer parts, he decided to take his chances and try to get a review job. As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
