900D vs 750D?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I am currently running two MSI 780 ti gaming cards in my 900D. I was at a stage planning on doing it all under water but don't really have the cash anymore.

I currently have a 900D chassis with 3 of the stock 900D fans pulling in air from the front; a push/pull configuration for my closed loop CPU cooler exhausting air and a 140mm rear exhausting air.

Due to me not needing all the water capabilities that the 900D provides I was thinking about selling it and getting some thing like the 750D, due to the chassis being a bit smaller to me I would assume that the fans have less air to push around in the case. The 900D is a mammoth of a case and there are a lot of airless places where warm air can just sit. The front fans are a lot closer to the graphics cards which would help push the warm away faster. This is all what I think, I don't actually know for sure.

I have been looking at my temperatures recently and my top card is almost double in temperature. I know these temperatures are not that bad, but for me to downgrade to a 750D I would be saving money and in turn hopefully getting slightly better temps.... hopefully.

In game:
Top Card - 30 deg.
Bottom Card - 55 deg.

Idle:
Top Card - 25 deg.
Bottom Card - 38 deg.

My question is, if I down grade to a 750D will I see better temperatures in my graphics cards due to the front fans being closer pushing the warm air away from my two cards or will I not see any improvement and should I just stay with my 900D.

Any recommendations and/or opinions will be appreciated.

Cheers

I recommend dropping down to a 750D. Especially if you won't be water cooling. You'll definitely get better airflow so your temps should be better as well.

Yeah! I agree, thanks for your input!

Mmm temperature wont be that big of a difference. Honestly though if you dont mind the size just keep the case. You can maybe sell your case for 160 to 200 and it would have to be local.

First, your temps are fine. 70-80c is still safe temps for GPU.

As for having fans closer increasing cooling.. probably make no difference. Proper case fans and airflow will do way more for you. You might find 2nd link in sig helpful.
