An external 1080 to hang off of the side would be much easier. Ive contemplated it many times biggrin.gif

What's the fun if it is easy?

This ^

Good 360 rads can dissipate ~300W with 10 degrees water to air delta, using high performance fans @2200 rpm.
With some modding you may have 720 in front compartment internally, so 600W max. There is long way to go to 1200W.
Even 1080 may not be enough, and this is with 10 degrees delta, which is OK, but not great. Plus crazy fan speeds.

I'm using 720 to cool down ~ max 400W, but with this rad space I can be at 900RPM.
Good luck cooling 1200W in this case - I really mean it - people do amazing things, so who knows.thumb.gif

So Guys let's talk about Fan Coolers, are the AF, SP series just as bad as people said? I'm debating to buy several fans to replace stock fans, Not sure if put some AF140 (not cheap but estetically correct) , SP120 Perfomance is also an option but i read they are loud as hell. Gentle Typhoon is much more expensive 20$ when with 26$ i buy a pair of Corsair SP120. Do those GT really really worth it?

I do not have a 7990 but I do have Crossfire 290x's. I don't know my exact temperatures as I just upgraded to the new beta drivers for AMD so I need to reinstall GPU Tweak. But I can tell you that the case even with the stock fans has pretty good air flow and cooling. My GPU's were scolding hot when I had my system setup on the bench. Now that its in the case they are a few degrees cooler. If I setup a custom fan profile that helps even more of course.

same question here, which fans would you recommend for max silence?

I had a 7990 in an Arc Mini and it didn't go over ~75, and typically stayed around 70. I can only imagine this case would handle it much better. This was with a custom fan profile on the card though.

With my current case/setup, card runs about 80C on 70F~72F ambient temps. I noticed 540 Air doesn't have a side panel fan and that's exactly where my card blows hot air.

Did you have a side panel fan on your Arc Mini? What 7990 card do you have? and What's your ambient temp?
