Thanks! I like the Core X9 better as it is more in the range of what I want to spend. I will have to look more closely at it later this week when I have time. I was hoping more for one where the MB didn't lay flat but it might be interesting to try that. Thanks again!

Not problem man, glad I could help.

I picked up the Core X9 myself a few months ago. Great case for the price, Caselabs is the best though. Couldn't afford it this time around.

One day.... hehe.

*edit*

I ended up liking the mobo being flat myself, really easy to work with and the X9 has a removable tray for the mobo too. ;-)

Awesome. I am trying to mod my Phantom 820 now as it is. I want to add a (15mm thin )fan that blows on the back of the MB directly on the CPU back plate and I have the full window side door that I want to add a clear 140mm fan that blows directly on my GTX 980. I am running into the issue of what to use to cut the sheet metal and clear plastic window without doing any damage to the surrounding area......
Have you seen this Lian Li D600 case? That is a sweet case and if I had the money I would probably own it.....

But the best thing about laying the MB flat like that is you can see the face of the GPU much better..

You really won't get much benefit from blowing air on the CPU backplate.

I'd say no benefit really. GPU depends on your case.. I'd rig up a 140mm just to test temperature differences to see if it's even worth it. I've never once had a decrease in temps blowing air with an extra side fan.

Then again I build with proper air flow always. In fact.... everytime I've tried it it increases temps as it blocks the original airflow by blowing air down at it. If you built your case for proper airflow a side fan is usually useless.

Haha yeah that Lian-Li is nice. Finally going all black with their cases heh.

Well going from the standard side door with a fan in it to the full window side door with no fan my temps went up 5 degrees. So I need to at least put a fan in there. I have every other fan slot in this case occupied with a fan so that is my only option.

I have heard from others that a fan blowing on the backplate of the CPU does help in some cases. A while back when I was trying to get past my OC wall with this 4930k someone mentioned to try that and see if it helps with the temps. Though to be honest my temps are normal if not pretty good for my low OC. I only qet 4.3 ghz on this chip as no matter what I do 4.4 ghz gives me a bsod within minutes of testing. But I am adding the fan behind the CPU just to do it. It may or may not make any real difference but I want to test it out.

OTH my GTC 980 OC's like a beast. I may not get the highest OC on this card but hitting 1558 mhz is pretty good for a stock ACX 2.0 cooler. I run it between 1507 to 1533 for normal games and it only hits 72 to 75 degrees on the higher end games. I have to lower it to only about 100mhz above stock for Ashes of the SIngularity otherwise it crashes the display driver.

Still refusing to get one of these huh? That 60$ may save you a headache wink.gif

I am holding out for a 1080 Ti with a water block so buying tha cooler would be a waste of money. Besides I contacted EVGA on that specific cooler and they do not recommend it for my specific card (I have the ACX 2.0). For one it does not cool the VRM so I would have to get a Kraken G10 or something of the like to go with that cooler.

My GTX 980 runs fine. It is my CPU that gets 5 degrees hotter without the side door fan installed. I want to try it with just the Prolimatech Vortex 12 blowing on the back of my CPU first as I prefer to leave the side window untouched. But I am having trouble finding a good method on cutting a 120mm circle out of the back panel with my dremel.

Building a custom loop was the best thing I ever did. I am glad I made the leap. I consider it money well spent and not as hard or as expensive as I had though it would be. Updated pics and benchmarks here: http://www.modsrigs.com/detail.aspx?BuildID=34135
I'll get around to updating things here pretty soon.

Hey, what's the best custom BIOS for the EVGA GTX980 ACX2.0 SC right now? skyn3t's BIOS is missing from OP

I'm looking to unlock the vCore limit, I can hit over 1500MHz with the stock BIOS, but vCore doesn't give me anything more than 1.256v no matter what I move the vCore slider in Afterburner to
