I have my H70 exhausting air out of my case, so if I had an internal exhaust GPU wouldn't it be likely to affect my GPU temps since the air inside my case will be hotter? I could always get an internal exhaust GPU and switch the H70 to intake into my case.

I'm debating the same thing, but not looking right at the moment, so I'm content to wait. Honestly, I'm looking for the Gigabyte Windforce 3GB to drop. Just got a thing for Gigabyte. I would definitely go with one that's got the time put into it that comes with a custom/third party cooler -- if you're going to spend the money, spend it right.

As for paying more for a lifetime warranty... I think a lifetime warranty from a company such as EVGA is a great thing to have. Worst comes to worst, you buy new cards in 2 years and use what you got to fold. Six years down the road they melt, you call EVGA, they obviously don't make or stock them anymore so you get brand new premium cards. Sounds sweet to me. That said, don't go out of your way to get it. If it's there, just consider it a positive thing for the model, don't base your decision around it.

rear exhaust gpu will keep your case cooler. now, when your h70 is also exhausting air out of the case, the air it actually uses to cool the rad isn't heated up too much thanks to the rear exhaust gpu, but still cools the cpu less effective than using the h70 as intake fans.

the non rear exhausting gpu's will keep the gpu core much cooler as it dissipates heat much quicker than dumping everything through the rear, but instead it dumps all the heat quickly into your case. and if you are using that warmer internal air to cool your h70's rad (exhaust fan), your cpu temp would go up a couple degrees. so if you want your cpu to also run cool, you will have to use your h70 fan as intake, which will make your case even warmer.

intake h70 + non rear exhausting setup will only be effective if your case have decent airflow, otherwise the heat building up in your case will cancel everything out or make things even worse.

but back on topic, the msi tfiii extreme will be an awesome card. if you don't mind waiting for a little bit longer, the asus rog matrix is coming out too, but it's a 3 slot card though...

EDIT: the asus card is not 3gb, lol, my bad, in that case msi tfiii extreme is your best bet then!

Right now I'm leaning towards the EVGA ones as my current 580's which are EVGA have performed great.

The inno3d card has the best cooler, with three fans. The Gainward Phantom looks good, but the cooler is not effective. It has two fans mounted beneath the heatsink, blowing hot air through the fins downward. This is counterproductive because hot air goes up.

Check the temps here for the Inno3D and here for the Gainward. The Gainward comes with a slight 11 Mhz overclock, but that is not an excuse for the difference.

If you have your H70 exhausting, it is taking air from inside the case in which "open" cards aren't ideal. They'll be heating up and dumping that heat in the case which is then pulled into the H70. If you want an open card, switch the H70 to intake.

I have my H50 as intake with my open 480 and temps are decent. Of course, I've got tons of fans to ensure I've got airflow in this monster case.

So, if I get internal exhaust graphics cards such as the Gainward's and switch my H70 to intake, would this mess up my airflow?



The red arrows around the graphics cards just means the heat dispersing into the case. I'm just not sure if the H70 intaking air will compromise the default airflow of the HAF X, in the picture below (which is what I have now).

the arrow from the h70 should really be red, but yeah, the airflow in your picture looks good
post #20 of 25
I would think that the airflow you have laid out in your picture would be just about ideal for the setup your are planning.
