So I might rig up a addition 4 120mm fans into the front of my case.

If I do that, I'll have a a plastic devider above we're my 200mm inflow fan sits so the 4 120mm won't steal the none heated air before it has time to enter the case.

I'll post some pictures for yall thursday..Night US time. friday/sat my time.
My airflow is more than adequate for these cards ...

I'll look forward to you posting a screenie (and totally blowing my mind ) w/you running Heaven, maxed out and getting 61C GPU temp on air w/SLI 470's, and 1.1V w/40% OC @80% fan.

If you can really do this, I may have to trade someone my TFII coppers for reference cooling ... but then again, the current setup isn't real loud, either

IN any case, to answer your question, if the temps are in check you can go to 1.212V w/a simple bios mod, done so on mine.

Personally though, I'd stick w/1.1V as my 24/7 max volt on air, and put it that way in the bios if you're happy w/perf on it. For quick benches, bump it up to the max w/Afterburner.

However, in my book, a few extra % of frames for regular gaming use you'd get from a wild OV/OC ... it just really isn't worth the risk, even if the core isn't that hot, other parts may well be. I like to kinda 'keep it under the hood', and save the juice for the benches when I'm out to impress

Mines loud..haha Sounds like a jet taking off when I engage all my fans for gaming..haha! I use a G930 headset so it does not bother me, I drop it down to 40% and Low settings when not gaming to shut off the noise level. Once I get everything settled in I'll go ahead and post up. I've been working on this build for 4 months, and the fan's we're the last phase

Rig sounds pretty sick, and that's awesome if you can pull off those kinda temps on air with reference 470's. I'll look forward to build pics and mind-bending screenies displaying your air cooling acumen

Sounds like the case name should have the word typhoon in it lol.
