any suggestions for fan directions?

I've got a big dual-fan XFX 7870, which does itself get fairly hot (70c sometimes during gaming), but it hasn't seemed to affect the CPU temperature. Granted, I'm using a pretty big air cooler (Silverstone NT-06 PRO) with good TIM. What type of cooler are you using?

I'm using the phanteks you see in the picture. I'm exhausting it out of the cases so any heat in the case goes right through it. I'm thinking my card has a bit of a problem, it gets warm, I have to run the fans almost at full speed to keep it around 70 while playing borderlands 2. unfortunately I was told that msi probably wouldn't do anything because the temps not way the hell up there. so I'm thinking I might void the warranty and put some new thermal paste on and see what happens.

I must have missed the picture! I've been tossing around the idea of delidding my 3770k and I spoke with XFX support, and they apparently are A-Okay with replacing the stock thermal solution on the GPU. I might end up doing the same!
Also, that cooler... SO perfectly over the top! I love it. smile.gif

haha thanks. its insanely quiet and in my last case, with the 3570k clocked at 4.4 the thing never went much higher than the mid 60's when stress testing. clocked it down to 4.2 and overnight folding sessions would never leave the mid 50's.

I am also planning on delidding as well just need to get a hold of some liquid ultra paste. I think after re-applying paste to my card and cpu, if its still warm, I will end up putting a hole in the top of the case for a 120mm fan to help exhaust heat.

I picked mine up on Amazon for like 19 bucks, but the shipping only took 4 days. I was worried about ordering direct from CoolLaboratory, since the international shipping can take forever in my experience.

Just would like to thank everyone who contributed to this post. I would not been able to complete my build without this.

Here is mine.

It was great fun doing it!

I ended up replacing the mobo with Asus z77 delux, changed the orientation of the cpu cooler to align with case air flow and added a noctura 140 mm fan.

Looks like good stuff thumb.gif and welcome to OCN

looks like all is well with my node. I decided to void the warranty on my msi 670 power edition and re-apply the thermal paste. and literally I dropped the temps by 20c.

I guess something must have been messed up from the factory, cause now it won't even break 60c with the fans at %60. before the fans at at %100 would struggle to keep it under 80c. now I plan on de-lidding my ivy, to drop the processor temps a bit.

but after getting my card under control, the thing seems to run in the 50's c, clocked at 4.22. thumb.gif I'm pretty pumped

also managed to toss together a build photo:



only thing missing is the 640 gig WD caviar black hard drive
