My build kept constantly overheating. My 690 was literally shutting off. Only solution I found was tearing the computer apart and modding water and a 670 in there instead. It was a disappointing move because my GPU horsepower dropped by almost 55-60%, but there's no more heat problem. 70C really isn't "overheating," though. It's well within operating temperatures for most (if not all) computer hardware.

I agree, however my games start crashing and or throttle when it gets that hot. I might have to resort to removing the HD cage, drilling holes in the front, and installing some intake fans. Trying to avoid that if anyone else has any suggestions

What cpu coolers are you guys using? I really think the blower style gpu should be a requirement for this case, seems like that will always be the main culprit of heat otherwise. I've got my 6600k OC at 4.4 and heat inside stays around 60c max.

I was using a Cryorig M9i on my CPU, which never had trouble. I've since pulled that, the GPU, and the original PSU, and replaced it with a 240mm radiator, 4 Nidec/DarkSide GTs, and and an SFX PSU. Running my rig thisf way limits my GPU length more (I can't use a card longer than 8" or so where my 690 was 11"), but the trade-off in compatibility is well worth the decrease in noise and temps.

I'll keep that in mind for my next gpu.

I wish someone recommended the M9i when I made a thread about what Cpu cooler to get. I just discovered it earlier tonight. Better then my tx3 by a decent amount.

Has anyone cut open the rear panel, to the right of the I/O shield, to add a case fan?

Someone did it quite a while ago. Don't quite remember who, but I think they said they could fit a 92mm fan there perfectly. I'm personally gonna make a hole there for my PSU when I decide to redo my water loop with hard-line.

I did, I needed an extra fan in the back so I made a cut for an 80mm fan. You could fit a 92mm but I think its a tight fit. Only one thing, I wish I had the right tool for it. I ended up dremeling a circle, not bad but a circle cutter would have done a much better job.

I wonder what the performance on this will be and if it will fit in the hadron.

Returned the TX3, ordering a M9i when they're back in stock. I much prefer the their mounting versus the stupid push pins. Should bring temps down a bit.

Will also remove the HD cage, and I'll try to get a CNC machine to drill some holes in the front and fit a couple 120mm intakes in the front.
