I made a seperate thread about this but i thought this might be a better place to put it.
I've been sitting on my new PC for about 2 months now. I've always wanted to go for triple monitor and i've been thinking alot about getting another 980, simply because one would not be able to keep me on 60+ fps. The issue with 2 air cooled cards in my scenario is that i don't have a 1 slot spacing between the cards which will mush them together making the top card not able to breathe properly.
I've overlooked several kind of setups for my case and i've been theorycrafting for a while. This is what i came up with.
- One thing that might be a problem is the Res+pump combo unit below the 2 cards, it might not fit.
- Another thing i thought of is the 140mm radiator thats runs in the bottom, it will be placed directly above a HDD. HDD runs hot and so will the RAD which is not good.
But i've thought about getting a custom 3mm Aluminum Backplate that dissipates the heat which most likely will solve the problem. There will also be a spacing in between the RAD and the alu plate.
- Also not a 100% sure that a 140mm+360mm RAD will be able to cool 2 980's, but it should be enough? right?
Solution for everything would be getting a new CPU block and a 240 RAD to replace the H105 which definately will be enough to cool the whole system, but more expensive and i'm already satisfied with the performance and look of my H105.
I'll appreciate any comment giving advice/feedback or suggestions!
