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.

Hahaha, some 1440p gaming in mind? tongue.gif

Thanks again for the info, most appreciated.

MrChunky, it's strange that you card doesn't uses a fan until it hits 80c... based on every review I've read, they just use all fans and stay as cool as possible. Maybe something is going on with that fan...

Your welcome! I hope you guys can get that fan issue figured out. This is an awesome case for sure and only reason why I moved on was mainly due to the cooling. I will say the case was very quiet though which I didn't expect.

I'm actually on a 1080p 50 inch plasma, so I don't think I will be going to 1440p for sometime. Just thinking the 780 would let me run games close to maxed out and having that extra VRAM for Skyrim mods might not be a bad idea.

Wow, really nice!

I think the 770 will suffice. The 780 has more VRAM and a bigger BUS, but maybe the extra $200 for a few more fps are not worth it anyway...

As for the fans, I'm just reading reviews and people's opinions where I find them. I'm not in a hurry and want something that will work great. Until now I'm decided for the AF120 like you did, or the SP120 for more pressure, since they will be so close to the GPU.

Why didn't you just use an air cooler like the AXP-100 or stock Intel? Are you OC'ing? Glad the 250D is working out for you. smile.gif

BTW, which card do you have?

MSI Global N780 TF 3GD5/OC, waiting on 500-600W PSU to come out so I could actually overclock it smile.gif .

Well I am gonna get some noctua fans in the same place, see what happens... It is strange that we are getting such vastly different temps. Thanks for the reply.

My guess is that the 780 gets hotter than a 770, but I have never owned one so I couldn't tell you.

I actually prefer water over air as it has a much cleaner look, less noise, etc. My stock cooler is kind of broken. It works, but its loud as hell, I think the bearing on the fan was starting to go. When I had that on here for a few days, my i5's temps were in the upper 40's-low 50's.

I do plan to OC my CPU since I figure I won't be upgrading till sometime next year.

I'm figuring the 780 would last me longer than the 770 would in terms of needing to upgrade @1080p as the newer games get more and more graphic intense.

I would go with some really good fans of your choice under the GPU, it helps.

Yeah that's true, but if what you want is more time without upgrading, wouldn't a 780 Ti be the right choice? I saw one at $649 not so long ago. It's used for 1440p so it should handle upcoming games very well at 1080p.The extra 1GHz of bandwith makes a notable difference.

Yeah, I considered the 780Ti.......but the pricing wouldn't fit in the budget.

Just a quick note here for those considering a CPU cooler:

H75 doesn't really fit this case with an impact VI. The daughterboards on the impact get in the way of a lot of CPU coolers too. Even if you could get it to fit with a 15mm fan, it's just not worth it.

The Noctua NH-L12 fits the Impact VI great, but only with with the 92mm fan on the bottom. Also, the 120mm fan will not fit on the top with the lid on. However, the 15mm fan that comes with the RVZ01 fits great and, secured to the door of the case, is well positioned.

Noise is very manageable once you control the fans with the fan controller software that comes with the impact VI. I used the Low Noise fan adapter that comes with the NH-L12 with the included 92mm fan and attached the Silverstone 15mm fan directly to a chassis fan port (splitter didn't work as well).

Why didn't you go with the Antec Kuhler 620?
