What case for Crossfire 6950s?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Im planning to crossfire a couple of 6950s for my new rig - which cases can handle this? Just warning you, my budget is fairly tight, otherwise id jsut go get myself a haf-x or something Aesthetics arent really important, i just want something easy to get into with good cooling.

Telling us your budget is tight isn't really helpful. Are we talking sub $50 ranger? $100 max limit?

Maybe look at these Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced and Thermaltake Armor A90

If your looking at $160 just grab a HAF 932.

It is better to tell us the motherboard as well as whether or not it allows any empty slot space between the 2 cards can make a difference in the choice of the case.

Also, will the two 6950s be reference cooling (ie front centrifugal fan intake + rear exhaust) or with non reference cooling (ie internal heat dumping)? This is also an important factor in case choosing.

A bit yeah

Do us all a favor and fill in your system specs if you don't mind. You can find the option to do so in your User CP options. That way we can quit asking you 20 questions and get you the information your after.

Maybe the link works: LINK

ok mobo will be asrock extreme4 (p67), asus p8p67 (maybe pro) or
msi p67agd65 - which of these have the empty slot?

The 6950s would be the VTX3D models, they seem to be going for outrageously low prices, which definitely dont look like reference models...
