iirc, AMD CPU has no 3rd gen pci-e support yet so you are running at pci-e 2.0. I would want mine to run at 16x both cards and deal with the heat (Kepler is not the hottest card compared to previous generations) in another way with fans and/or watercooling. Probably not the answer you were looking for, but I think the speed of the cards outweighs the heat for me.


Edit:
I received my HAF XB from the CM store yesterday. I will post pics once it is filled with my goodies and ask to be admitted to the fine club here.

At most there will be ~5% loss running 8x vs 16x on a single core gpu and this will be random.

Best setup would be to give your top card as much breathing room as possible since its the one that will run hotter.








Just finished leak testing. had to wait a bit to purge most of the air out and its looking good. Very cumbersome to refill but its working. Going to leak test a few more hours to make sure no slow leaks creep up. Will fire up this evening and start Surround on this new Titan setup thumb.gif

Thanks. After running a few tests I see it doesn't seem to make a difference in my case except the main card is back to around 70 C. With the other right under I saw it get to 83 C.

The TF coolers dump the exhaust into the case so make sure you have some path or airflow to exhaust the hot air from the case.

Is your bottom card the one running hotter? On the pics, seems like your case is right up on the wall and maybe suffocating it a bit.

Thanks smile.gif


Luv the R4s and you can get them in red led. You can also order the frozenq res w/ red (ahem, more like pink tbh wink.gif) helix'. I have a bit of glue here and there to break up the mono tone of green.

Well, i had 28 green led R4s from my previous case so I made good use of some of them biggrin.gif.


I'll have pics of the final setup soon. I have to dismantle my old MM case as I have yet to find her a new home (frown.gif).
