What cards are you running out of curiosity?
EDIT: I Assume the CPU cooler fans are pointing up?
Just to confirm they're windforce coolers yeah? Put the sidefan as outblowing if so.

Thanks, Yes they are windforce, they have two big fans on each GFX card. The side fan is blowing towards them.

the CPU fans are blowing against each other (towards the center/up and down). you can see the orientation in the pics. It doesn't fit left-to-right due to the ram cooler being in the way.

Perhaps you could try to have the side fan as an exhaust instead of an intake and test the temperatures then? It would probably be the easiest thing you could do.

Thanks for all the welcomes guys!!!

I'll try switching the direction of the side fan when I get home from work!

I guess I'll have to look into water cooling if that doesn't work, what do you think?

I cant tidy up the cabling much more, there are 7 hard drives in there don't forget. My PSU also NOT being modular is also a PITA.

Just a tip for this site... Generally this is a welcome thread, not an advice thread. If you have any questions about your build etc, its encouraged to start your own thread in the relevant section. That way, you get the attention your question deserves thumb.gif
