I've seen some cases where this isn't the case, it just seems like it is because of how some utilities incorrectly report gpu performance. For example, never trust MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision to accurately report the voltage used by your gpus. Sometimes its correct, sometimes it pulls a random number out of a hat.

AF140s are not meant to be on a radiator and having two different types of fans on the same rad in P/P can cause annoying sounds because of different sound signatures and RPMs. and it most likely won't work. I had the H110 when I had my Maximus VI Hero in this build (now in the second build) and I wasn't able to do P/P. You might be able to drill new holes like I did for my 60mm rad, but I doubt it considering the extra thickness.

Where are you located that they cost so much? Here I can buy a pack of SP120PWM for 30 bucks.

Hi, I have 2x Asus gtx780 DC2OC(non-reference coolers) cards with only the factory oc, EVGA Precision onscreen display shows the top card down-clocking when the temp reaches 79c

Hi, thanks might just leave the H110 alone then and put one of the AF140,s on the back exhaust, Am in New Zealand and tech is expensive here probably due to shipping costs getting it here to the south pacific...
http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=16984 this is why i wanted to know if they would bring the temps down enough to warrant me spending the cash, as i would sooner get some funky red sleeved cabling:)
My Air 540 cost me $218 and that was a discounted price lol

So. I know this isn't really the place, but I'm shamlessly self-plugging my youtube channel for reviews. I plan on reviewing this case early next month and I'll include a link to it once I get that all done.


linky

This is a review of the Corsair Force GT. I figured it might be helpful to those who are looking to get an SSD or buy another.

Added a nzxt sentry 2 fan controller

I absolutely love this case glad to get rid of my haf x taking up my entire room. I also decided to go with an h100 for this build instead of a nh-d14 for the looks only.

Hey, guys. I'm definitely thinking about popping on this case after buying a HAF XB last week and kind of being disappointed that I would have to do a lot of modding to get it the way I wanted. I think this case has a great look and I'm not a crazy overclocker so I don't need massive rad space. My biggest gripe with this case is the vertical 5.25" drive bays. It makes a fan controller look awkward. I can't decide if I should go with this case or the Lian Li PC-D600. That case has more watercooling support but way too many drives for my liking and you can either remove them all or not (you can't take out separate drive bays). Would you guys recommend this case for a new WC enthusiast who's in the market for a cube case? Budget is about $350.

If your budget is $350 just for a case than buy a caselabs. Love this case but caselabs is way better
