The RV02 and RV03 cool almost identical, the link shows Kyle's experience with installing 2 480's into the RV02 (again, cooling is almost exactly the same). I have an RV03 and the only issue I have is with mounting my H60 in the front, some minor modding would of made my life much easier. I will also be picking up an H100 to mount in the front of the case, so don't think you have to buy an H80 if you get the RV03. Another important thing to remember, you have 2 180mm intake fans on the RV03 to keep things cool, how many intake fans does a 650d have? The people who talk about GPU cooling are also mistaken, the only time a heat pipe will work like crap in the RV03 is if the heat pipe is of very poor quality, in which case it wont perform well anyways.

The 6870 I have came with a reference cooler that blew air out the back, I had temps hitting 86c. I replaced the cooler with a twin turbo pro and my temps dropped 30c and I cant hear the cooler.

I forgot to add my Radeon 6970 is running at 50-55c idle so I do need a case with good airflow. Btw can you buy an aftermarket cooler for the 6970??

The 650D will handle it fine lol. Though you could jusmp on the HAF X band wagon...

As for a cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ING-_-35186043

Yeah because literally my can has no cable management you cant even see the Ram hahaha... and its tiny inside... its from 07 rofl! it has 2 case fans 1 stock 230mm and 1 120mm that is broken. Hahahaha

Damn that is a sexy cooler but i might just see how the case handles it first because I might upgrade the GPU next year to one of the new ones that will be released by then

And since when is there liquid inside a heatpipe?
Dang it... that just made my day worse. I have an XFX6950: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150527

Non-reference GPU... would it be a bad idea to get the RV02?
