lol, my goodness..8-10 fans? More fans than a lot of watercooled rigs.

I would set the top as exhaust, set the rear and the front as intake, reverse the orientation of the CPU cooler to muster cold air from the rear.

Add a little Undervolt and an agressive fan profile on the GPU.

Maybe a fan at the bottom (if supported) as intake.

With that monster of a card, I would avoid it heating the CPU from the hot air it radiates.

Otherwise, fans replacement should be highly considered.

well I should have made the caveat that those fans would be low rpm, high static pressure, so as to not be annoying and loud. That's the reason for more of them.

Thanks I will give that a shot and see. I don't have many connectors n the mATX motherboard until I get a better fan controller I am limited on the amount of fans I can run on the case.

Okay this is what I did and with the help of a friend he configure the fan profile under msi burner. So far temps are much better but I need more intake cooler air. Better fans or a better layout etc..



The Top Fan is feeding the CPU with fresh cool air directly, and the rear fan is taking cpu hot air out of the case. The front fan is feeding the case while the inside 120mm fan help move that air from the 200mm fan in front to the GPU. I also added the fan to the bottom of the case to push more fresh air up while having that inner fan pushing it toward the GPU. We found that the PSU cover was causing a heat pocket between the GPU and the PSU. So far temps are great but could be better. :biggrin.gif:

Yeah, custom fan profile is important with Hawaii card.

I think the fan on the CPU cooler helps a lot with the air flow in that fans configuration.

Yea I wonder if it won't help more if I put the noctua nh-d15 back in since it has larger fans. Or take the CPU fans and place them in my case instead. I mean the noctua 140mm fans.

Can you say "Custom Loop Water Cooling"? biggrin.gif

You won't have the heat problems, or the noise problem!!! thumb.gif
