Might have to try a weaker fan in the middle or no fan in the middle, many different configurations to try - it should be fun/interesting!

The FT03 is small and cute. I can see you don't have much choice about radiator placement. A second or third fan will help overcome the airflow resistance of the addtional rad. A middle fan would be easier to rig.
My experience with the Atnec 920(thick rad) and 2600K CPU is one of diminishing returns for fan speed. It seems most of the delta T is at the chip and water block, not the rad and air. Maximum fan NOISE only buys me about 2c difference.
My sons buiness needs processing power, not graphics power. The FT03 with a 2700k or SB-E would fit the bill. An good air cooled 670 would be a nice addition.

Couldn't you zip-tie it to the bottom fan if you moved that silly diagonal fan?

I've been thinking about stacking both of my 620s in a push-push-push with my exhaust at the end on my FT-02... should have a few mm between the rads and my NH-U12 tongue.gif

I've got an idea on how I'm going to sandwich the rads together, with a fan in the middle it'll work perfectly since there are screw holes on both sides of each rad on all four corners.

I'll be able to post pics next week once I get the bracket from Dwood.

I heard back from dwood and it sounds like the 120 fan isn't going to work so I started looking into 92mm ones. I found this one (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186034) and was wondering if it was good or if people here have a go-to fan when doing this mod. I'm going to look through this thread before asking some of my other questions to avoid redundancy but thanks for the future help!

NICE work! I bet that 680 is a beast! I'm sure you can OC that thing to the max now! I'd try to reseat the cover for the GPU! That'd really make her look nice! thumb.gif

Alright guys, just got my heatsinks in yesterday.

Instead of using smaller heatsinks I decided to just cut them down with a rotary tool. Turned out a little sloppy but it's better than just using smaller heatsinks and not having them cover the whole chip.

I love it!

hahaha, thanks! I see some people on here putting those smaller heatsinks on and it doesn't cover the whole chip. Since these heatsinks are aluminum they were pretty easy to cut.
