Awesome walk through. You're right, #5 was the screw I missed.

Is it possible to replace just the fans? I'm not happy with the stock fans; they're the noisiest part of my system...

Jester,

The smaller 2 slot 560 DCII has a metal frame around the fans. Looks to be a perfect fit for a 92mm fan. I think what I'm going to do is look into getting a regular 92mm case fan and attach it to the area by the VRM. Here's why. It looks like the best 80mm x 10mm VGA fans output is about 21CFM per fan. I can get a Masscool fan thats >40Cfm and a CM fan thats 54CFM... That's at least 2x more air flow... I think it'll drastically reduce my GFX card temps and I'll even look into seeing if I can adapt the 3 pin connector to the VGA fan connector...

(tips on better cable management are welcomed)

GPUZ-Validation:


I'm currently in the process of overclocking it.
It's the first time I've OC'd a GPU. Every time I raise the core clock I run the new OC through 3DMark and Unigen Heaven for 30-40 minutes to see if it's stable. Is that enough? Or should I wait an hour before bumping the core clock again? After running the current clock through 3DMark and Heaven I went on to play Metro for a while and it seems stable to me

Also I'm pretty happy that the temperature hasn't gone above 55 degrees while gaming, and with the fan running at 50%, it's pretty silent. That was really the first thing that struck me with this GPU, how extremely silent this cooler is. I went in expecting what I'd read about the efficiency/silence of the cooler to just be some nice marketing talk, but damn I'm impressed! I went from and HD4890 XXX to this, and there is a world of difference in noise level (and performance obviously).

I was on the fence for a while and couldn't decide between this and the MSI Lightning, but in the end I'm really happy with my purchase! .. my only regret is waiting this long to buy one.
temps look good; your cable management seem just fine
