That just goes to show you that you should always shop around before ordering.

Especially for us poor folks .. who grew up back when things were real and TVs were very big boxes with very small screens. biggrin.gif

Kind of dark, but it's my fractal arc mini r2. Those front fans came with the case and I'm looking to upgrade them. I've used aluminum foil and masking tape on the top between the 120 fury x rad and the 240 corsair rad along with other gaps I've noticed.

Would phantek f120-mp fans for the front as well as the fury x on the rear be a good upgrade to reducing the gpu rad temp?

Sorry, but about all I can tell from your pic is "Radeon", "Born to be Fast" and maybe a sailboat int there .. I can see the trees out your window better than what's in your case. tongue.gif

Could you tell us exactly what you have and where it is placed .. or at least take a better picture.biggrin.gif

Sorry the flash stopped working. It's the fractal arc mini r2 case with the 120 case fans in the front. Fury X rad is on the back with a 6700k and 3200c16 ram plugged into a micro OC formula board. The CPU cooler is the corsair H100i v2. Also has a 512gb 950 pro and evga 850 g2. The ODD and HDD cages have been taken out as well.

Everything is stock and runs cool but I read fractal fans are not that great so I was wondering if it would make a difference replacing them before I start to OC the gpu.

Try closing the curtains, or move in close enough so pic is only inside of case. If you block the background light, the picture will likely not be so dark. wink.gif
That's my photography 101 lesson for day, now back to serious stuff.
If it's running cool, why change anything?
I only have one thing to say .. if it's not broke don't try and fix it. tongue.gif

Ya I wasn't sure if different fans would be an upgrade or not. The hottest I've seen my gpu so far was 63c. Thank you for the replies, saved me $45!

I've spend hours, days, weeks, months, years trying to get temps 1-2c cooler .. most of the time when it made absolutely no real difference.
I joined 'Cooling Anonymous' and admitted my addiction. I'm now a recovering addict and can let a system run as long as it stays below 30c at idle with 60c CPU and 65c GPU temps. I have 5 little fan buttons to prove it. biggrin.gif

That was me with my whole build I would overthink everything! Can't wait till I pick up a couple of hbm2 cards next year and how I'll go about cooling those.

I've managed to curb those feelings for a while now, while the weather was nice, but now... It's been raining nearly every day for the past month. I'm starting to feel those cravings again, and I have nothing to curb them.
