Finished my 290 CrossFire Seidon 120M setup.

Works pretty.

Looks good, what did you use for the VRAM and VRM heatsinks?

Thanks.

The sinks came in the kits from a Arctic Cooling Turbo II and Xtreme III.

I gotta mount a 200mm fan in the side panel to exhaust and find a way to get a 80-92mm fan on each card over the sinks.

ssiperko, why not have the fans blowing down and out of the case instead?

Or maybe intaking cool air? You've got one rad sucking hot air from the other. Doesn't seem efficient

I've got one of my rads directly behind my old air cooler sucking hot air from the OC'd CPU (until I can find another 2nd hand CLC) and the GPU's not getting much over 50c under load with the SP120 configured in "push" running at half speed.

For neatness I would probably find a way to mount those to the bottom of the case in "pull", but I imagine they're running just fine sitting like that.

That's not how the air flow is directed in my setup. I did have a Seidon 240M intaking air from the bottom with a P-P setup on my single card which pulled in a LOT of dust that started to clog the rad.

The issue with the duel 120's is they both won't reach the GPU's laying down and then I face the same clogging issue.

I have 2 - 140's blowing in from the front with a H100 in a P-P mounted on the roof and a 140 exhaust.

I have a 200 to mount on the door just not sure where to put it.

This setup still kicks the crap outta the Xtreme III and Turbo II coolers temp wise. I can't get 80C now and in the games I play they run in the low 60's 1100/1350 now. wink.gif

I got all of them off eBay a year ago for like $10. It was out of some aftermarket coolercooler pack for a old nvidia card like a gt210
