Do you need that much airflow? I'm using SpeedFan to run the front fan at 25% when the CPU is under 51C and GPU under 44C, ramping up to 100% when the CPU or GPU is at 68C. It rarely gets that high.

you can always replace the front 180 with a new one.

Would it not be better using two 45 degree fittings between the GPU and rad?

Technically but there is no space with his setup

Man this is what I have in the works right now too lol. Radiator on its way in and next will be the block and pump. That pump top is a candidate I had too. Looks good in the case so might be what I end up with

I tried 2 45s with my setup between gpu and 120 and didnt fit, fittings got in the way of each other.

This is how I ended up going. More pics in the Log

Was thinking about picking up this case, but it seems like it has extremely poor airflow for GPUs

guess im beating a dead horse but, two 45's will not fit. the case is not long enough and the fittings will bump frown.gif

@ bombzaway - if you have a reference cooler that exhausts the air out the back of the case, this is actually quite good for gpu airflow. it's only when you have the coolers that blow around inside the case where the temps can start to climb, especially with the psu so close as well.
