Cooling Options For My SLI Setup?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Was wondering what you guys think would be a good upgrade for cooling my 2 cards. I was thinking of getting the Arctic Twin Turbo II's but Im not sure ill have enough room for them as I believe they take up 3 slots. It would fit but there wouldnt be much space between my first and 2nd cards. I have 2 EVGA GTX 550 TI's. When Overclocked they run in the 60's I know thats not that high but I just dont personally like it. Im sure with some better cooling I could get the temps lower and overclocks higher. I have a HAF 912 case and Gigabye Z68A-D3H-B3 Mobo.

I know my case is dusty give me a break lol.

Can we get a better idea of how you have the airflow in your case currently. I know that simply adding an intake fan to the side has helped my temps on my cards in the past, but it really depends on how the rest of the case is setup. I wouldn't suggest it if it might disrupt the rest of the airflow.

HAF 912 has x6 120mm fans in it, 2 in the front(intake) 1 on the side(intake) 2 on top(exhaust) and 1 on the back(exhaust) All the fans are antec tricool at 1800rpm.

My fans are setup exactly like this..,

Honestly, I feel like you would be paying too much for a possible 10C drop.....but It's not like I'm going to stop you.

But, if you must get better cooling I would personally do this....

It would cost pretty much the same as an aftermarket air cooler, if not less, and yet will give you much better temps.

But fyi, these gpu's are rated to run 100% fine @ 90C.
