post #6121 of 8434
Hey guys. I am thinking about SLI'ing Gigabyte 780 Ghz Ed, but I have been reading that temps will get pretty high (up in the 80's range) for one of the cards. As you all know, the case has two fan spots on the plexi-glass side of the case. I would only be able to get one (bottom fan) on there because my CPU cooler hoses are in the way of the top spot. That is not a bad thing, I suppose, because the bottom spot is right where the two cards are, so it will be blowing air onto the cards...that is if I should have a fan blowing in or out. Oh, by the way, the cards will not be separated by a slot.

The way I have the fans in the case set up now is the two in the front and on the bottom are blowing air into the case. The two fans on the top and the two on either side of the radiator (push/pull) in the rear are blowing out. I have no fans on the side of the case, yet.

(1) Is this a good fan set up so far? I think that it is because my temps are fine for both the CPU and the GPU, just trying to get some opinions.

(2) If I put a fan on the side, would help cool down the GPUs in SLI? And, if so, should I be blowing air in or out?

(3) is it going to be a hassle? Will it be worth SLI'ing?

I think that is all I have lol.

Thank you in advance for your responses, help, advice and suggestions.

I am pretty sure by my measurements if I just pull the radiator forward slightly instead of mounting it center it will have no problems with hitting my ram or mobo heatsinks.

I know i need tubing+coolant, most likely just primochill clear and mayhems.
You will need a rad mount to mount the reservoir to the extra fan location, I use the Bitspower 120mm Water Tank Mount Panel (BP-120WTMP-BK): http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14355/ex-rad-318/Bitspower_120mm_Water_Tank_Mount_Panel_BP-120WTMP-BK.html?tl=g30c97s169

You might also want to throw in a couple 90 degree fittings to make tube routing easier.

1. If you're currently happy with temps (and they are under 80 degrees!) then the temps are fine!

2. what kind of fans are on the GPU itself? Blower = side fan intake, otherwise the fans are working against each other. If the GPU fan is just strapped to the heatsink then I would test both configs using the exact same stress test and see which one is cooler, experiment swap around fans see what works for your setup.

3. No idea biggrin.gif Good luck if you decide to go ahead with it! Also how many HDD cages do you have installed? If you only have 1 then you can put 2 140/120mm AIOs with that GPU bracket with the fan, sorry cant remember its name!

Thanks for the input!

Temps are fine with the one GPU. I have a Gigabyte Windforce 780 Ghz Ed, so it has three fans on the bottom of the GPU. I have the HDD barcket in there with 2 SSDs and 1 HDD. The fans that I have in the front are in the very front. You can see it in my avatar. There is a spot for a fan on the HDD bracket, though. Should I put a fan there, too? That would be taking air in from the front fans and throwing it on the the GPU(s).

Why not!? The only time adding extra fans will be an issue is if they make too much noise or if they are competing!

That sounds good. Perhaps, I will give that a shot. I hope that I will be able to do this and beef up my rig a bit. Any suggestions on a side panel fan?

No idea, I'm no expert by any means! If it'll fit use the same ones you already have? Depends on whether you like them or not.

yeah i got a few 45 degrees i dont know if i will need 90s or not I actually looked at your set up and want mine quite similiar.. how would you go about draining your loop? Everyone I ask tells me they add this and that fitting yet you never see them.. all the really clean WC builds never use those ball valves or drain valves from what I can tell.

Here's what my internals look like as of now.

A drain valve would not be a bad idea to make things easy but it is not needed. For my build I will just use a syringe and suck most of the water out of the res and they lay the case on its side and remove one of the stop plugs from the GPU block to drain the rest of the system. Not very elegant but it works. On my latest build I did include a drain valve and it is a nice feature.

90 degree fittings are great and I am sure a couple would work out well in your situation. In my C70 build I need two 90 degree rotaries and a 45 degree rotary in order to clear the motherboard heat sink. If you look closely you will see the 90's on the top rad.

I see, thanks for the pics sebar. I'm def looking to do something like yours. I watched your video on youtube and love how the leds light up the liquid with the xspc blocks, I'm hoping 2x 240mm AX Rads should be enough.. I know it can fit a 360 on the top but I'd rather keep it simple.
