I like the Maximus VI Formula, but in my opinion the red cables are way too flashy compared to the rest of your components. Black cables may give a more sober result =)
DUDE ! I've just felt in love with your mod ! :O
Really perfect job !

thanks you are right maybe, i will try all black at some point.... ive spent all my money on this for now.... redface.gif

it doesn't look too bad when the smoke window side screen is on though....

ok so i'm sitting iwth a simple issue. I have 2x R9-280x club3d cards. So I'm playing @ 120hz 2560x1440 so as you can see my cards should get warm but I feel it was getting a bit to warm for my taste.

Having all my fans spinning at 100% except for my h100i fans. Cpu temps is still fine but my GPU went up to 90C and i feel that's a bit hot. I have the following fans in my case

Back; normal af140 that came with the fan
Front 3x Cougar vortex PWM fans
Top Corsair H100i radiator with stock fans as pull.

So is there any way of getting more air between my cards or puling out more air. Should i change the fans for better ones or will i waste my money or should i still be fine running my GPU on 90C as long as it's not for super long periods of rime? It's only like a few games where it will get that hot so not a super big deal i think just want to get my temps a bit lower if can.

i was thinking about making a whole in the side so that I can add another 120-140mm fan there to cool my gpu's but i'm not so skilled with that and i don't know of anyone that can do it for me as i'm in South Africa. So please suggest me what I should do or if there is anything I can do to keep my temps lower.

Oh before i forget my ambient temps = 23-25C


Thanks

Sadly, that's the way the new generation of AMD cards are running when on air. They really should be liquid cooled cards. How are your case fans setup? 3x120 front as intake and the 140 rear and H100 as exhaust?
