post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i have 2 in mind the CM690 II advanced and the CM storm scout, firstly i need a case that removes heat fast since my gtx 560 pushes air in the case not out. I dont mind paying a tad more if i can get it asap so if there are any other cases around thats good/better for around the same price lmk ty

What do you mean by "pushing inside the case"?

As far as I know, the Gigabyte GTX 560Ti OC uses the air inside the case and pushes it down onto the radiator on the card itself, and in that way transfers the air to the GPU.

So what would be good for you is a case with a side fan or optional side fan (not only in your situation though).

I recommend these:

Cooler Master HAF 912+
CM 690 II Advanced
HAF 922
Silverstone Raven RV03

Hope it was helpful

well its not a fully enclosed shroud most of the heat comes out of the top (where the heat pipes are) and from the back of the card (where the 6pin connectors plugin

I fully understand your concern of the Gigabyte GTX560 Ti which dumps heat inside your case.

I have advised a few members here and offer a 'top-exhaust' approach to remove that heat as effectively and quickly as possible.

Here is one thread that you can go through. My concept is demonstrated with a CM 690II Advanced at post #15.

Another thread where my suggestion is demonstrated with a HAF932: (posts #16 and 28)
http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling...w-chassis.html

As you are using one card, I suggest the CM 690 II Advanced (not the side window version but the version with two fan openings on side panel).

If you plan to use 2 cards, then I suggest HAF932.

The setup shown in the pic is not very good as heat exhausted from the card will be sucked into the 'push' fan of the heatsink. Obviously, this is not desirable. See pic below.

As for your future setup, I understand your concern that the lower fan of the 212+ might be too close to the back of the graphics card, when the 212+ is oriented upward.
Judging from your pic, the distance will probably be less than 2''.

There are a few things to do concerning this situation:-
1st: Install a 120mm/140mm fan to the side panel upper fan opening of the 690 II Advanced. You may even use an air duct to further focus the air to the space between the 212+ and the back of the card.

2nd: Do not use a 'push' fan at all to get max distance between the 212+ and the back of the card. Using just 1 'pull' fan for the heatsink will lose around 2C under load. Not too much, IMHO. For a single-layer cooler like the 212+, a single 'good' fan (push or pull) is usually enough.

3rd: Use a higher CFM/static pressure 120x38mm fan as the top 'pull' fan

Edit 1:
You need to check to make sure there is enough clearance all around for you to orient the 212+ upward.
