Boygor, do you have an idea of where you'll be putting the fans in that R3?



This seems counter-intuitive, but I won't argue with results. Have you tried turning the side intake into a side exhaust, or plugging the hole altogether?
Yeah i've got a good idea where the fans are going, two on the top, two at the front and 1 on the side going by the optimal air flow as specified by the Fractal user manual

I'm removing the front fan that is currently installed (came with the case).

I paid around £10 a fan - I really couldn't be bothered shopping around so it was the cheaper of the two sites I checked.

No, and I don't plan to. From the temps I've seen on other people's air cooled SLI rigs, I have lower temps than most. Especially considering my cards are OC'd. When I load the cards with F@H my temps don't go above 64C and they run even cooler while gaming. I also have a 100cfm 135mm Scythe Kama Flex directly in front of the cards, they get a lot of fresh air.

Hi I was wondering if you purchased that video card and if it fit in your case. I just ordered that case and am checking out my options for a video card. Thanks.
