When I get my 760s back from MSI I'll test. I took out the slot covers and I need to get a good 140 that's more in line with pulling resisted air and make a shroud of sorts. What's cool is this can be used on any case I imagine for nothing and it could save from using side mounted fans.

Feeling a bit better about the Carbide 540 replacing my HAF in regards to my 290 Tri-X in crossfire. I just realized that with the PSU out of the way in the new case, I will be able to skip a slot and mount the second card way below the first one. Right now they are close together because no other option. That, coupled with 3 GT AP-14s up front as intakes, make me feel like I might get the same or even improved temperatures over the current setup.

I don't recall I'm afraid. I will say this though. The airflow from that fan was hot so it was pulling a lot of heat out that otherwise would have hung around or got pulled through CPU cooler/rad etc

Hey Jim,

Saw your link to coldzero. I always wanted a backplate for my graphics card, but wasn't planning to watercool it or anythjing, just didn't like the look of the bare card in my case. However, when I look on that website, it says their plate will fit "reference" cards only. Do you know how to tell if my card is a reference design or not? I have an ASUS 660Ti:
ASUS GTX660 TI-DC2O-2GD5 GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Thanks!

Edit: Sorry I should have read the post closer. This wasn't even talking about Coldzero backplates, oops! Also, did you guys see that lightbox they have for the Air 540 on that website? It looks really nice, but pricey.

No need to apologize, and, no your card is NOT a reference board, but if you email him, he can probably still make it. If he makes a backplate for the 670DCU2 it will work on you 660Ti, asus used the same board on both cards.

Ahh ok. Thanks for the input, I'll check it out!

Very rough sketch of what I'm talking about doing.
I used a larger radiator as a place holder, but the fans would either go between the radiator and this bracket, or on the other side of the bracket
I know the top 120mm fan will be blocked if I choose to use thicker rads, but I've still got to figure that out.
**This is only for the front 360mm rad**
Gonna try for a complete rough sketch.

Sorry for so many pictures, but trying to show what problems I'm running into.





It looks like this is going to be the best solution. (setup wise, not fan wise)

Take a look at my build it's similar to your sketch, and maybe you get some ideas from it. wink.gif
