Yea, if you need to move standoffs around, make sure you have a wrench. tongue.gif
Make sure you have a decent amount of ties, the case doesnt come with a huge amount., if you plan on doing anything but the official spots for ties on the back
If you are putting fans in the front front panel, the hard drive bays will be remarkably cool but at the same time not much of that air seems to flow into the case itself...(while i mention it, does anyone else have that problem?)


And I must see how that full panel acrylic mod was done. Its fantastic.

Do you have another fan on the HDD cage? This will improved air flow there.

Thats probably what i should do. I guess ill just plug a fan into the mobo header itself, as my fan controller is full now.
post #4716 of 8442
ty kizwan...

quick query for your input

should I go the arduous route and do a GPU block/mofset block setup on the 660ti I have (which I have already overclocked to its limit.. at least this specific 660ti on air FROZR)



or...

should I invest in a higher end card i.e. 770 lightning... and get a full coverage waterblock??

the only issue being, I would have to hold off on SLI for a while... if I stick with the 660ti I could afford to get another

I read in overall gaming performance, GTX 660 Ti SLI are massively better than the GTX 770. If sticking to current setup plus custom water cooling you're going to setup in next few months will allow you to get another GTX 660 Ti, I say go for it. Universal GPU block does not inferior than full water block. They perform very good too. The only downside is that you still need air flow for VRMs cooling.
