I already had two black G10s installed in my 900D (xfire'd 290x's w/Corsair H105's). The red one is in my mITX build...250D, 290x w/Kraken x40. Yes, the G10 fits...no modifications necessary...perfect fit! I'll post pics when I get home from work.

Perfect, I have one about 15 minutes away. Going to pick up another one for future 780ti. Thanks

Hey folks, I just placed an order for a G10... planning on installing it on a R9 290X. One of the previous posters suggested these heatsinks:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17951/vid-196/VGA_Aluminum_Heatsink_w_3M_8810_Adhesive_-_13mm_x_13mm_x_7mm_-_Silver.html?id=s7Xyj54N&mv_pc=177 x16 for memory

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17727/vid-191/Micro_Thermal_Heatsink_-_65mm_x_65mm_x_12mm_for_Motherboard_MOS.html?id=s7Xyj54N&mv_pc=178#blank x3 for the left vrm?

Then I need to find a long heatsink for the right vrm, is that correct? The card will be installed in a Bitfenix Prodigy M, so it will be facing the top of the case, where I will have two 120mm fans blowing cool air on it, so I'm thinking aluminum heatsinks should be good enough. Could someone confirm if that's all I need? Thanks.

Ive been wanting to read up and reply to a lot of stuff on here lately but ive been super busy and while i hapen to be at my laptop uploading these photos i figured id link em to you guys....


Thats 82 current C on card 2 and 83 max on card 2, with 69/68 C on avg on card 1 with its max hitting 69, min for card 2 was 35 C and card 1 was 32 C. This was at the max possible res something in the 7kby4k range at 16:9 aspect with max AA using revtuner i believe its called? Sorry super late and PC is already off lol

The Build so far.... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Slightly modded switch 810 case from nzxt. Using bottom intake and front exhaust based of ipurely off instinct, havent had much time to swap stuff all over the place and ive messed up enough screws test closed loop systems and cables that i dont really trust my clumbsy self moving stuff around again and again to test temps unless i really am inclined tol
Asus Rampage IV Extreme using corsair h110 with phanteks PH-F140SP_LED fans in push pull (19dba@82cfm ea) as an intake and a 5th sp140 doing the same job filling that third 140 slot on the top of my case aboce the 5.25 drive bay area. This is assisted by a Lian Li aluminum 120mm fan air duct with 2 Prolimatech ultra sleek vortex 14 fans with static booster attachments on both for 18dba@98cfm pre static booster, these are acting as the main 140mm exhaust pulling the h110s heat right out the case.
2 EVGA GTX 780 ti factory super clocked settings with modded acx thermal heat spreaders/unisinks one with stock thermal pads, the higher temp card with 5W phobya thermal adhesive pads @ 1.5mm.
VRM/VRAM fans are Arctic F9 pwm Pro fans rated at 0.4sone aprox 14 dba @ 43 cfm each
corsair ax1200i with fan facing up to be used as an extra exhaust out the back.
2 X40s with push pull setups mounted on the bottom of the case are bitfenix spectre pro led rated at aprox 22 dba @ 86 cfm
using corsair's vengeance black RAM 32gb (4x8gb) 1600mhz,
and have 4 WD caviar black HDDs in a 3 to 4 5.25 to 3.5 or w/e drive bay adapter under an nzxt HUE module taking up all my 5.25 drive bay slots
Only using one of the 3.5 drive bay racks with all 3 slots used, 1 for a samsung 840(regular) ssd for win8, one for an 840 (evo) for win7 another smaller evo for program files and space since i will be getting rid of the caviars over time, and the final slot being for a PWM related Fan controller i love using.

Other than that only thing to mention is another phantek fan on the 3.5" hdd rack assisiting the 2 front exhaust 140s which are cougar's rated at 18dba @ 124 CFM which is kinda hard to believe when comparing to the other fans imo.



Heres a quick pic, note theres a sound card im not using and havent decided what i wanna do with yet, leave empty, swap with a slider for the asus rog sound card i have or what i wanna do atm its just a creative Z series card.

Just a bit of ranting...
I was thinking of changing the cougars out for bitfenix or phanteks or the rosewill hyperbola fans i love so much, heck maybe even the prolimatevhs if they felt ike they were actually pushing as much air compared to all the other fans, but its a nightmare trying to figure out what exactly is hitting what im still getting used to this hybrid pwm/manual take over control setup with these controllers i use, and then using curves for evga precision to control the VRAM/VRM fans, the kraken x40 control software to control the x40s fans, and front exhaust, and of course asus ai suite II's fan XPert 2 or w.e its called for the cpu fans curve which are all controlled through the mobos cpu fan port.

Is there plenty of space in the 250D? Or is it a tight fit against the sidepanel? My 780 ACX SC gets rarther loud, so this would be an option smile.gif

Thanks! I love it too!

It's much smaller than what I'm used to, but it's a great case to work on.

It's actually a perfect fit (like it was made to go in there, lol). It does take a little manuvering to get it in, but no sidepanel issues. The fan actually sits the closest to the side panel, but it doesn't touch. If, for some reason, you were to have an issue, you can always put on a slim 92mm or 80mm fan.
