Ok fellas, I just picked up 3 NoiseBlocker NB-eLoop B12-3's and will swap out my TruQuiets with them.. Hoping for the best... I really like my case but I will seriously consider swapping to a new one if this doesnt do the trick, I will post next week when I have the new fans installed and let you know if it was a fail or not. Cross your fingers for me.

New, more powerful case fans will certainly help (Noiseblocker makes nice quiet fans), but not sure that will get all you the way there. Some ideas...

* a new case with more ventilation (many midtowers to choose from)
* switch to gpus with shrouded blower-fan coolers (evga)
* add a fan inside the case, under the cage (like somebody else mentioned)
* remove the unused pci slot covers
* remove unused drive drawers
* clean up the cabling inside to run more behind the mb tray
* hack/cut out extra ventilation on the antec case, side and/or bottom fan mounts (brute force approach)

edit: i have a case with a similar layout and fan mounts, but only run a single shrouded gpu in it. to run sli, i'd want to upgrade my case first (see make believe build).

Thank you for the suggestions here, I have ordered new fans and when I install them I will also clean up my cables as much as I can.

I have two Asus Direct CU II GTX 670's in my case, one being an OC , the other a regular NON TOP. My top card was reaching 80c at times, which scared me to death!

I modded my side panel to fit a 120mm intake fan and replaced the stock TIM with Diamond IC 7 and now my top card never goes above 68c!

Airflow is really important with these cards. I have done loads of testing and i cant find a cooling fan that performs anywhere near as good as a Gentle Typhoon AP-15.

I have tried:

- Akasa Pirahna
- Corsair SP120
- Corsair AF120
- Gentle Typhoon AP-15
- BeQuiet! Silent Wings 2

Also i run a semi aggressive fan profile but still only gets to about 80% under full load. Thats overclocked to 1202mhz core and +550mhz memory too.

Replacing the TIM with IC Diamond dropped my temps by about 5c.

OMG

I very much hope it has a P in its model name

If it does not have a P in its model name rip it out of your PC before the PSU kills it

That is a sweet looking rig!! Great job on the side mod you did! How or what rather did you use to cut the side wall of the case?
post #47 of 75
Thanks man, i made a new acrylic side panel and the guys in the tech department at work used a CAM machine to cut a perfect 120mm hole.

I have done A LOT of experimenting with cooling these cards in SLI and that is the perfect solution. The second i turn my side fan off, it reaches to 78c atleast. The same happens when switching the fan for another model which is rather odd!

My final temps are:

68c top card
60c bottom card

The bottom card has a modded bios to run 1.21v so that it can overclock the same as my top card @ 1202mhz core, +550mhz memory. I'm dead chuffed i have achieved really good temperatures whilst keeping the setup quiet thumb.gif

Running stock takes another 5c or so off each card .

I don't have nearly the talent for that mod. I am hoping the fans I bought help. Too bad they don't sell an aftermarket side panel for my solo II.

Firstly pull everything out, you need to work on cable management, I would say that is ONE of your biggest issues, cables obstructing your air flow.
secondly get some more/better fans. As shilka said cooler master HAF (High Air Flow) series are great cases, another great mid tower case to look at is the fractal design define R4 series, the white windowed ones have been lowered in price to about ~$80, plenty of room for fans/rads whatever you wanna run. but PLEASE work on your cable management first!
