Well, the HDD cages restrict air flow and they ruin the look of the case in my eyes. But yes, I plan to go full custom water soon. I plan to save up after I get my SLI running and have it all watered down. I went with the mATX board because well, it is a great board. I love Asus boards and all Asus boards other than the ROG line are usually over priced for how they perform. Many people can probably agree on that as the Sabertooth is really overpriced for what it does!

So far, my plan for WC is 1 Black Ice rad (thin for the top 240) and a Monsta 240 rad on the bottom. All with GTs for the fan and I plan to get all components watered down other than the SSD. tongue.gif

However high temps in an sli configuration are just something you have to get used to with air cooling. I went from a single twin frozr iii 680 that max'd around 58 degrees to 2 top of the line 680's getting much higher temps. It's just the result of the top graphics card having limited air space and taking in heated air moving across the top of the bottom gpu. In your case, It probably just has to do with the thermal capabilities of your graphics cards themselves, and also how hot the ambient temperature is. But by all means try out each setup.

hello swhitt1 , your board is similar to mine Z77-GD80, know if a third gpu be without interfere the front panel cables
post #1057 of 8434
Yes, you should be able to.
post #1058 of 8434
Hey all, just obtained a white C70 which I'll be using for my first PC build and thought I might as well ask questions before I start ordering more bits and bobs.

Can anyone suggest what fans would work well with this case for an aircooled setup? Do I need high pressure fans such as Corsair SP120s at the front or only if I decide to keep the HDD racks in situ? Would also ideally like to use LED fans on the front (NZXT FZ LED Airflow?, Enermax TB Vegas?, SilverStone Air Penetrator? etc.) but don't mind elsewhere.

Won't be doing anything extreme, so just looking for good all round performance really. Wish I could work this out myself but there's so much choice I've become a bit overwhelmed! Have previously been considering getting three Corsair AF120/AF140s for 1x top/1x rear/1x bottom, but no idea if there's anything significantly better suited.

Edit: Also, can anyone confirm whether a 170mm tall CPU cooler such as the Thermalright TRUE Spirit would fit with no issues?

I use antec tricool fans in the front, they have blue LEDs. I think they also come in red and maybe green, not exactly sure. I have used them in the past as well and don't have any complaints. If you go with none LED fans, can't go wrong with a 2 pack of SP120s if you plan on taking one hard drive cage out and you can do push pull on the remaining cage and put like a AF120 for the remaining intake. With the hard drive cages in the airflow is fairly restricted.

I tried the corsair sp fans for the front of mine and they were so loud i could not stand it and they didn't move much air through the filter so i went with Noctua sp in front bought 2 of them from amazon and they were 7 bucks less then new egg.
