With stock bios and stock clocks, I was at 38*C after 15 minutes of 1080p max-AA Furmark. After playing with with voltages and warming up the room a bit, i was getting between 45-47*C in Heaven and 3dmark11. This thing is craving for more voltage

So do you guys suggest reference or non-reference card for this case? I am thinking about getting another 780. I already have a reference ASUS card one now.

unless youre on water

Then reference would be better in both cases then.... Reference cards are better for water cooling because of the waterblocks. Most non-reference cards don't get a waterblock. Exceptions are the Lightning and Classified, and occasionally the ASUS direct CUII cards.

I have the water cooling installed, but no electronics ordered yet.

Quick estimates. Short cables are 12" for power LED, power button, etc., 24" for audio, and 13" for USB 3.0.

I really love this case. This is what I've come to : Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

In there : i5 3570K, BeQuiet Dark Rock Advanced C1, ASRock Z77Extreme 4, Sapphire HD7950 Vapor X, Intel 335 180gb + 1tb Caviar blue and Green, and a Seasonic Platinum 760 (that was not installed when the photos were made)

I'm thinking of buying a R9 290X when I can. Do you know if a Prolimatech MK26 will fit in terms of width ?

Yo guys, i think im goin to replace the Stock Fan Coolers of the Case, they seems to not been pushing so much at 100% speed. Could you advice me some good High pushing airflow compatible with the 140mm mounting of Corsair AIR 540?

For what spot? I'd suggest running 3 120mm fans in the front and if you're going to stick with air cooling then get 3 140mm for the other spots. The Noctua A14 PWM fans have served me well on my Corsair H110, but I'm sure DaveLT has better suggestions as to what 140MM fans to use.
