so no you are doing nothing wrong, but if you can find a way
to make your radiator push pull with 2 fans.

I'm sure I can. I'll try moving it to the front position.

and then took a 120mm fan and attached it to the 2 top screw holes on the bottom cage using the 2 bottom
mounting holes of the fan therefore it feeds cool air too my 2 graphics cards. see pic.
bottom fan IMO is no use.


Thanks for the quick response! That was my feeling also on the psu. Very interesting what you did with the fan above the hdd cage, I like it. so is it only secured by the two bottom holes? or did you tape it on one side? I will def try this I think.

I still need to redo the wiring on it. Would I get any better temps with a h100i?

its just held on with the 2 bottom holes as the case comes with long machine screws to mount the fans to the hdd cages.

have you seen the new corsair H110 240mm radiator with 140mm fans? and
it does not have the troublesome software and only has 1 pump power wire and 2 fan wires.
corsair has confirmed the H110 with fit in the top of the C70.

I have not. However now I am playing around with the idea of a full custom loop once I get my second 670.

But the main problem I have is my board. The heatsinks create a few problems with closed loop systems.

I will look into that here shortly. I may just move my H80i and see if that makes a difference too.
