And at full load on p95 for 30min, my CPU hasnt broken 80°c and my gpu's are just as well off around the same. No water cooling either. I'm playing bf4 right this second and my GPUs are 78 & 68 and CPU is 63 so all is well in the h440

thanks for the reply bro.

so do you guys think i'm making the right decision? Its either I return my asus gtx 770 and replace it with a 780 or r9 290...or I get a second 770 and SLI it. i'm thinking SLI...feedback bros...

thanks!

Depends how much power you want long term and how much cash your willing to spend. If you have the funds and plan to add more later send back and get the 780 or r9 290, then sli/xfire that later. But for now another 770 will give you a bit better than 780ti performance in applications that accept sli and will have some minor stuttering issues, normal sli or xfire stuff. Check to see what games you play most if they are sli compatible if not then your wasting money on the second 770 just get a 780 and not worry about sli issues. its all about cash on hand or plan for future and what applications you use. Your call. Its usually better to have 1 higher powered card than 2 mid range sli or xfire to avoid issues or programs that wont accept sli/ xfire, but that's not always the case. I myself have 2 7970's. Do i need both? not really at all. But a buddy of mine had a 7770, and for 90 bucks more a year later he got another for 7870 performance. My opinion, the most money you can put up front for the higher card the better but the 770 sli would work nice too

some modding required to fit the H110
https://teksyndicate.com/forum/cooling/h110-fractal-design-r4-yes-it-fits/161572

Edit: come to think of it, probably not the most practical idea, but it's an idea

Yes, the FD cases are nice and that's actually where I first started. But I need my HDD cases as i am putting in three of them so then I am back at one of the bigger cases instead. Also there was something in the Anandtech review regarding fitting of things that throw me off (think it was the review of the XL case). But nevertheless nice cases smile.gif

Not to deter you from just simply waiting it out for the H440 though. smile.gif

Maybe youre right, maybe I should just wait... but it's too long and especially since there's no guarantees on the April dates either.

Regarding the Trooper and Stryker they look like nice cases but not my kind of aesthetics, and also they're bigger cases and if I decide bigger then I think I've settled on the 750D (the Wookie way...). Besides the good looks of the h440 the reason I am hooked is what seems to be the best balance of small size and big interior that I have seen.

As a start I will be fitting a M6F board, a H110 cooler, 3 SSDs and 3 HDDs. No GPU to start with, this will be an upgrade later probably.

Thanks! But as you see above no thanks. wink.gif (But I do like the Trooper more than the Stryker...)

Also should probably add I live in Sweden. biggrin.gif Maybe time to update my profile a bit...

So... my attempts to control my fans did not work. Speedfan did not work and Corsair Link slowed it down, but not to where I would like it. I did not want to get the Sentry LXE, so my choices now are to either plug in my fan controller and set-and-forget it inside or mod the NZXT area and stick in a fan controller (that can be used by remote) in that space.

Thoughts?
