Happy to join you guys smile.gif

Wonderful case, easy to install your hw components. Noisy fans, two of them needs replacement i think (i will contact corsair). GPU is on the way.

Evening all,

I've had the Air 540 for about a month now - very happy with it. I've also been following this thread with great interest the last few weeks - enjoying everyone's pictures/experiences. Quick question:

I'm looking to get a GTX 760 but I'm torn as to which type of cooler to go with; be it the stock, enclosed cooler or the open aired one, (the ACX cooler for example). I'm not too fond of the idea of the hot air being dispensed back into my case, but would the GPU cooling performance of the two-fan, ACX outweigh those sorts of concerns? I currently have 3x SP120's in the front as intake, 1x AF140 as exhaust at the back, and 2x SP120's as intake (pull) at the top via the H100i radiator.

As it stands I have a GTX 580 (stock, enclosed cooler) - any suggestions what would be the best way forward? Many thanks,

Friend, i'd had the gtx 760 with the reference cooler.
Its sufficient for stock clocks with low noise, or for mid overclock with mid to high noise levels. It dissipates the hot air outside of the case.
E.g. the ACX will handle quieter and better mid to high overclock frequencies but hot air will be spread inside the case. I do think that your described fan setup will be capable to remove the hot air from your case.
So i vote to take some custom cooler version of the gtx760.

Hi there - many thanks for the quick response. Lovely stuff, if my current cooling setup should take care of any additional heat being released into the case I imagine I'll be opting for the EVGA ACX, or maybe the MSI Twin Frozr? Conundrum.

Both are similar performers, kudos for the bit better msi custom cooler and to evga for their customer support. Mine was evga gtx 760 sc.

Do you have the 1.5gb or the 3gb?

If you have the 3gb then honestly I don't think the 760 is much of an upgrade more of a side grade than anything. I also came from a 580 1.5 SC and if the 760 performs anything like my friends 670SC under water then I can promise its only a side grade. My 580 was keeping up with his 670 no problem in nearly everything. You will even be downgrading the memory bus from 384 to 256

Just my thoughts but I can see why you would want to buy into the 700 series because there is much improvements since the 580

Are those grommets red, or reflecting a red LED?
It looks very nice!

Hands down the best for sound and temps will be the NZXT G10 GPU bracket. Grab that and a closed loop with a 120mm rad (Antec Kuhler 620 for example) and grab a reference card and enjoy the temps. It's by far the best mod I've done (I'm using a similar GPU bracket) and the temps are ridiculous and the main thing is the quiet. Look into it, you won't regret it =)
