Windforce 670 SLI in Corsair 500R, Will it work?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I intend to do a SLI of 2 Gigabyte 670 cards for my new gaming computer to maximize my 120 hz montior, here is my current set-up:

Mobo: ASRock Extreme 4, The Cards will be placed in 1/3 PCIE slots(these are the PCIE3.0 slots)
Z77-Express-Ivy-Bridge-Value,H-E-345362-13.jpg
Case: Corsair 500R:
Fans: 2 X120 mm intake, 1X 120mm exhaust, 1X 200mm side panel fan.

I have read a lot about how Custom Cooler GPUs are bad at SLI because the top card's exhaust heats the the bottom card. But I also heard the Gigabyte model exhaust most of its hot air to the side. I intend to mount the 200 mm side fan as Exhaust to pull these exhaust out of the Case.

Is this set-up good enough? Or Do I have to add fans for it to work?

These 670's of Gigabyte stay so cool, I wouldn't even worry about it. The Windforce I have clocks to 1300mhz and stays below 55*C in Haven Benchmark fully maxed.

Yeah, it does shoot a lot of heat out the side... meaning my processor has been a lot warmer lately. But hey, pick your battles. I just need a different design CPU cooler.

EDIT: Oh, and that is at less than 60% fan speed, making it practically silent.
