So I've got a dilema here guys. I want to upgrade basically because Im bored and I want more power lol. Heres what I'm thinking about doing.

1. Ditch the H-100 and Water cool CPU+MoBo+video card

2. Get another gtx 670ftw (and eventually water cool everything)

3. Get a Phoebus Sound card+ better speakers

4. Get 2 more monitors for surround gaming


I honestly WANT all of those but I can't afford to do them all right now tongue.gif

Im not sure the controller can handle it. If you try, you might blow it out.

If anyone has any picture with my specs i will be gratefull thumb.gif

I have the exact same case and exact same mobo. You cant do push pull in this case unless you mod the top handle, or just cut it off.

baby steps Highway, baby steps.
May I suggest to get another 670 first smile.gif

I'm thinking for a long time now to buy a new graphics card and actually cut back on water cooling the gpu (too expensive)..

1) Splice and solder if it can handle the added load

2) If the controller can't handle more best I can tell ya is use the controller to trip a relay that then turns the fans on using power directly from the PSU.

3) Out of luck, aftermarket controller

Anyone think about replacing their H100 with the new NZXT Kraken 280mm AIC? I'm interested in seeing the reviews and results of that beast. Should fit perfectly in our cases!

Well in order to get decent fps on decent settings for a 3 monitor setup your going to need a second video card in my opinion. a resolution like 5670 x 1080 is alot for a single 670 to handle

I've see Newegg have 15% off promos on the stryker but that's about it.

Why are you asking about the trooper window panel if you are looking to buy the stryker? Just curious...the window panel is only from the CM store and they are out of stock at the moment.
