It looks good like this smile.gif

Just a note, you're gonna have a problem with dust going through the top into the case, but I don't see anything you could do to prevent it smile.gif

RADS are used to cool C/GPU's, they need the Coolest / freshest air.. You are using them as exhaust, meaning ur RADS are taking in warm air, thats increasing C/GPU temps (not saying ur temps is to high but they could be better...) Rads should be intake, if placed in the front

Hot air goes up, but ur using the top fans for intake..?

I used to have the rad fans as intake, didn't like it, too much hot air inside the case.

Now temps are much better with a higher overclock.

Your saying that Gpu temps is better now? and was higher when u had them as intake? then u must have done somthing wrong xD

I know that using the rads as intake increases overall "case-air" temp but PCB's handle the temp better then processors

Overall temps are much better, gpu's are about the same, perhaps even a bit better because they no longer have to pull air through a filter.

still think that u should have front-rads-fans and buttom fans as intake and cpu rad and top fans as exhaust

@NorKris

You should really take time to read ehume's thread regarding air cooling in the air cooling section. That "hot air rises" is not too much applicable when it comes to computers. Air goes where you want it to go, forced by the fans themselves.

I had the same exact observation as oshu's, where the making the rad exhaust produced better GPU temps than making it as an intake. The difference is VERY significant by the way.

I'm assuming you are not an advocate of "positive pressure" when in you use more intake fans than exhaust. Hell, look at my system in my signature all m fans are intake (except for the GPU rad exhaust fan) and the hot air is naturally exhausted out the back where the PCI slot pillars and the rear fan grilled are removed as well.

In your pics i can se a Arctic Accelero Hybrid Cooler cooling ur gpu as exhaust. and its beening "feed" cool air from the front, still i dont personally like that setup but its ok cuz its not getting to much warm air.
but at Oshu's case the Rads will take in hotter air, from the GraphicsCard-pcbs and the system in generall. And that increases the temp of the gpu's.

If u take a look at my rig (link in sign) u will see that i take all the air in at front with 8 fans (yes abit overkill) and i have the 2 Rads from the Gpus mounted to the intake fans. the hot air from the rads meet in the middle and gets "bland" out with the 2 buttom fans (intake). This way i keep the cool and fresh air to the Rads for the GPU's for best temp possible.

OMG where have i been? This mod is fantastic, good work guys! I've been fighting my gtx 470 for some time now, and have been justifying replacing it due to heat and noise. Does anyone still make brackets?

Bracket, you don't need no stinkin bracket. You can make one yourself using acrylic from Home Depot. I had some laying around from another project and it works great. I think the original bracket maker has moved on to other things and can't seem to get them made fast enough, though since you're still using a 470 you don't seem to be pressed for time. For the cost of a bracket (jk) you might be able to find a new GTX660, a worthy upgrade that would last you another 5 years given your upgrade schedule. tongue.gif

All you need is a drill smile.gif (or zip ties!)
