use any fans that you thik will give you a good noise to cooling ratio i have noctua nf-p12 and akasa apache fans on my card and cpu and they work a treat and are silent.
as for the vrms aslong as they have some airflow they should be ok but heatsinks are recomended.
what cards do you have (link a pic) if they are reference then you can keep the vrrm heatplate and fan on them i think if like the one in pic the vrm should have something on them already

Thanks. My gpu's are the ones of the photo. So the noctuas are truly worth the price? 1 for rad or 2 for rad?

they are good fans but are overpriced.
can you get the apache fans where you are there similar spec but cheaper.

i would say get one and see how your temps are to be honest we only get a extra 1-2c with 2 fans vs 1 anyways

Only 2 degrees difference? Than it's not worth it. So if I put the 760gc in the back and the 740gf in the top I should put one fan doing outtake, then de rad, and screw it to the case?

yea i would try exhaust and intake and see what temps you get

They are overpriced because of there excellent sound profile and performance to noise ratio, not because they blow the most air. Apples to oranges yo

I´m going to buy a 760GC and a 740GF to cool my 2500K OC´ed to 4.3Ghz and my two Inno3d Gtx570 Hawk also OC´ed a bit, in my Coolermaster Scout case. The main reason is reducing the noise while keeping the overclock, without breaking the bank. I´m thinking about mounting the 760 rad on the back and the 740 rad on top.
A couple of questions though:

- Should I buy 2 fans for each cooler for a push-pull confi or will 1 doing pull be enough?
- Is is better to buy Noctuas NF-F12 PWM 120MM 1500RPM (20 euros each) or or is the Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition (13€ each) more than enough?
- Can 2 sets of the Arctic Cooling VR004 be used to cool the VRM/RAM section, along with a Noctua NF-A9x14 92mm for each card or is there a cheaper way to do it, like having a Corsair AF120mm on my side panel pushing air to both cards?
Cheers

The "Law of Diminishing Returns" quickly applies it's self to fans on radiators. The thicker RADs temps can be helped 10-20% by a second fan. I have the NF-F12s on TT Water2.0 Pro for i7 2600k, and like them.
I would not want a fan with no speed control. I have been pondering this item that takes a PWM signal to control a non-PWM fan:

I'm less inclined to build one myself now.

Here, I took the back bracket from my stock cooler to help me space out and mark the holes for drilling on my Corsair H55 Bracket.

Masking tape for slip protection and mark.
3 quick coats of plastidip red
Assembly

I was forced to make this as Dwoods is overseas and would be expensive to import.

I am still busy with the stock cover as well.

Nice job. I like how you used the back bracket for a stencil. The paint job adds cool.thumb.gif

I'm sorry but I didn't understand the PWM part, what do you mean? With my Asus P8Z68-V Pro,where do I connect the fans and both my 760gc and 740gf ? Sorry for being a bit noob about this but if my purpose it reduce the amount of noise the fans must automatically adjust their speed to the temperature. Or will I have to buy a fan controller also?
Thanks for the input :-)
