Ill just drop this here

385

Now, As you can see this card would be mounted with the heatsink face up from the design there, And the fans blow onto the PCB not the heatsink, So overall i think im getting more hot air than ever before in any other case due to the way it is mounted

The card dont go past 70c but ends up staying at 50% fan speed thats 3 fans of aprox 2000RPM

Not to mention with a 2 hour gaming session of playing tera the top of the case will be about as warm as a cup of tea or coffee, But its not just the top of the case, you can feel it on the drive bays too

I can fix the temps im pretty sure by just a reference GTX 570 but i have no cash for that and may as well sell this to fund the £350 minimum for the GTX 670

Hey guys. I still haven't bought a GPU to go in my case, but I'm concerned whether one will fit. I'm using a Noctua NH-D14-2011 cooler which is a bit of a beast and it doesn't look to me like a GPU will fit into the lower slot in this pic: -

Has anyone got one of these coolers and will I have a problem fitting a GPU into the lower slot? It really doesn't look like one will fit at all, even if I bend the fan clips out of the way!

Thanks!

I think the guy that got it to fit in this club had to bend the clips. I would recommend a back plate though.

If you do get a card in that bottom slot, I too would recommend a backplate. I would think if the heatsink ever did touch the gpu, it could short something.

If you can bend the tab great, if not just get something in there to insulate it....aka backplate. Rubber, plastic, paper even, just make sure sharp solder points cant make it through.

As you can see the fan on my cpu cooler is on the left site, so its blocking the hdds i can have in the cage. The bottom cage was really noisy and vibrating when i had the hdd in there. Do you think I could change the fan to the other side, how will that affect temps?

do what i did and get rid of the bottom one and turn the 4 bay one around biggrin.gif Velcro = win thumb.gif

heh, nice idea. Any modding required? Also guessing it has a negative affect to the temps in the case because the air have less openings to go through to reach the mobo area. Atleast cpu temps, seems like gpu might be getting some more air because you lowered the cage. Am I right?
post #1870 of 7172
Im having second thoughts about this case now, Really a lot of problems could be solved if the motherboard was not inverted, the fan would force more air to the cards.

But also i am really struggling to wonder why they did not put any vents on the top panel of the case or just a few holes on the top of the side panels, It would of made quite a difference
