Thanks for the recommendations. I know someone with a Platinum 860, SS-860XP, and it's not 160mm long, more like 190mm. The product page for that particular PSU is wrong (maybe over zealous copy & paste on the web-page):

http://www.seasonicusa.com/Platinum_Series_XP2.htm

It looks like the Platinum 760W, X750, X850 or AX860i are likely choices. I like modular, only installing the cables I want. My optical drive is only 170mm, so I'm hoping that creates more distance between itself and the PSU.

EDIT: For people with the H80/H80i, have you tried flush mounting the radiator against the inside of the case, and having just one fan on the inside blowing out? I was thinking about doing this to minimise the fan + radiator + fan hitting the CPU block.

I have tried with just one fan. There were no problems, and there was just a 4°c increase. I was using Noctua NF-F12's at that point, and they have the best static pressure VS noise. Depending on the fans, you will see a bigger increase.

Even if there are both fans attached, and the second fan was slightly touching the block, it was not a problem!

About PSU lengh, i have a Seasonic 1000W Platinum over here, had to do some bending with the cables, but they fit just fine, and i can use the routing holes.

There is an old and a new Platinum 860W in the Seasonic range.

Yes, the old one was 190mm. If you can locate the new one, it is only 160mm.

Look - here is the link to the 190mm version also still current on Seasonic's website:

Be aware that Seasonic has just issued a new revision of the X-series power supplies. They are still 160 mm long. The distinguishing feature is an extra switch near the cable connectors that lets you choose between two fan modes (Hybrid Silent and Normal). Recent review of the 750W model on PC Perspective.

Soo, first post here at Overclock.net. I just recently moved my build over from an Antec 300 Illusion, and I'm thinking now is a good time to upgrade my graphics (560ti) considering the GPU delays.

I've been looking at prices for the 7970, 7950, and 670, but my main concern is cooling. Will I have a major problem with temps with any of these, considering they probably won't be a blower-type GPU. My cooling just consists of the standard front fan, my Hyper 212+, and I'm installing a GT AP15 in the rear as soon as my rubber screws arrive (what were they thinking with the included screws!?) and replacing my Hyper 212+ fan with a NF-F12 (I'm just trying to keep my PC as silent as possible, within reason).

I'm just worried that with high-end cards like the 7970, my case temps will skyrocket. Do I have anything to fear?
Thanks chums!

With your Corsair TX650M installed with the fan at the top of the case (facing the mesh) the front 180 mm fan should provide enough positive pressure inside the case to help any GPU heatsink exhaust out the vented expansion slot covers. Plus, if you stick to a good GPU air cooler like the ones on Asus (DirectCU), Gigabyte (Windforce), and MSI (Twin Frozr) you will get better cooling and lower noise levels than a reference design blower-type cooler.

check my sig for the parts i have. basically a good quality cooler on a 7950 which blows into the case, and a 212 evo similar to yours. i don't even have a 120mm fan on the rear and i have no problems whatsoever with temps.

as said above, the 180mm fan at the front does a pretty good job of ensuring internal heat is exhausted out of the vented expansion slot covers as well as all other gaps that are present in the case.

can't emphasise enough though, make sure your psu has the fan facing upwards.

Is anyone here using the Rampage IV Gene board? ...and also, use it to speed control the front 180mm fan? I haven't bought the board yet, but am hesitating in doing so as I don't know to what extent it'll be able to control the front fan.

Thanks guys, you have assuaged any fears I have had about temps! And no worries about the PSU, the fan faces upward.
