Case for Quadfire / Quad SLI

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Would a Cooler Master HAF X case be sufficient (airflow) to cool a overclocked quadfire 7950 setup?

Yes.

Why quad-SLI?

Overclocked QuadGPU is a bad idea in any case. Cards needs to be spaced apart. Otherwise it will be very hot and loud.

I would say it depends on your cooling. You are watercooling right, because air is masochistic man. If are watercooling, look into external rads. Then your actual case will not matter beyond your own preferences.

Honestly i'd vote for the corsair 540D AIR in this situation it seems right up that cases alley but it's not released yet.

That said more then 2 gpus? WATER COOL

Well, I won't be using Quad SLI, it will be Quadfire consisting of MSI 7950 Twin Frozr III Boost Edition cards. The rig will be used for mining cryptocurrency and occasional gaming.

The motherboard I'm thinking of is the Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3 as the PCI-E slots are not close together.

You really should look into water cooling or at least blower style coolers. The Twin Frozr III blows the air all about inside the case, without removing it. Which means they are great for a one or two card setup, but not ideal for three-way or four-way.

Using four cards with basically no space in between each card (such as what will occur on that motherboard you mentioned) will cause your temperatures inside the case to be terrible. This will effect your graphics cards, as well as the processor, and motherboard temperatures.
