I think a normal thickness 25mm fan should fit. According to Silverstone manual: "(ii)With the standard 34.8mm-thick dual slot graphics card installed, the maximum thickness of the fans is 32mm."



Will try to fit one into mine with MSI 780 OC on Friday...

Not sure if you read a few posts up, but I had 2xAF120's under the GPU which fit without an issue. Those are 25mm.

Ah thanks, now I see it doh.gif

I still have to test mine with a few games, but with Unigine it ramped up all the way to 80C, so pretty sure it would be the same with BF4.
I'll have to get one or two AF120 as well, or another fan in the same level of performance to see if it helps the blower temperatures. Nevertheless, it will surely help with the airflow.

As for the 600W PSU and the water cooling, hopefully something will be available sooner than later, I'm personally waiting for the 600W PSU to do overclocking.

I think cards like 770 (depending on the manufacturer) target a certain temperature. I have a 780 which goes to 80C the moment you stress it and stabilises there.

Yep, 80c is the throttling point at stock for GPU Boost 2.0. The cards (no matter the manufacturer) can operate at that temperature fine, however it could be lower (for example, CaptainZombie here goes only to 59c at load, which is awesome!).
That allows better room for GPU Boost to work with, and if more overclocking is desired it should go without problems. In my case, being near 80c already doesn't helps me a lot in that area. So, I'm currently searching for a good fan to see if it helps my current setup (way too many options wackosmiley.gif), otherwise maybe I switch to an open-cooler GPU tongue.gif

I have an open-cooler gpu, one of the fans does not even spin up unless the card is at 80C. So I don't think it is due to lack of cooling potential. If you want lower temps you need to manually set the fan to higher RPM or flash a different bios. As anandtech mentions here the card oscillates around that temp. Correct me if I am missing something...

I think Captain has a 770ACX so we must ask him how he set it up? Calling captain...

Well, reporting back with my results after a few weeks of gaming duty. I left my machine running BF4 overnight a few times and the max temps I saw were 71*C on the GPU (R9 290 Tri-X) and 61*C on the hottest CPU core (4670k at 4.4ghz, H40 cooler). Seems to be working excellently, and it makes a nice extra space heater as my room in the new house has no heat ducting to it like the rest of the house does. No problems running on the Silverstone 450W with the Noiseblocker fan mod.

what are the ambient temps like??

Somewhere around 67-70*F, I keep it warm in my room with the door shut because I'm spoiled from living in SoCal for the last 10 years and now I have to deal with it being -15 outside.

EDIT: I should also note that the 290, while the temps are cool throws off heat like an oven. I only have the two stock thin fans in my rig, one pulling through the rad onto the motherboard and one pulling air in to the GPU. I can feel a tower of hot air coming out of the top of the case during games so it definitely lives up to the Raven line. I have my case oriented in the vertical fashion.

Hmm I don't really know about that, so yeah let's wait for Captain's feedback. Meanwhile I'll check out the max RPM for the blower cooler, never checked that out...

BTW, which card do you have?

It's strange with this site, sometimes I get email notifications that threads are updated and other times I do not. LOL!

I have the 770ACX. When I had the case, I placed 2xAF120's under the 770 pulling air from outside the case and into the GPU. I never even changed the speed on those fans and left them at default speed wise.

I never went above 58-59 degrees on load with the 770. I am getting very similar results in the 250D, so I can't complain there. The 770 is a great card overall, I've been getting the crazy upgrade itch of late for a 780.......I need to stop. hahahahaha

I hope this helps, let me know if you guys have anymore questions.
