Unless you have extra 140mm fans sitting around, just try with the case panel(s) open first -- maybe even with a large fan blowing into the case if you have one around the house somewhere. That will let you know whether it's even possible to get your temps down given your ambient temps. If that helps, then I'd suggest buying a couple of extra fans to put into the side panel.

The biggest key in your case is getting as much fresh air into the case as possible, while ensuring that you're getting as much hot air out as you can.

I had a corsair 650d case that used to get my 2 cards to hit 83/81 C since I had no side panel fans.

Since then I have bought a HAF X case with option of a 230 mm side panel fan. Now my temperatures were 78/75 C. I also put a Kraken G10 on my top classified so that runs at 50-55 C and my bottom classified runs at 70-75 C depending on game. Definitely put the side panel fans.

Also can you post a picture of your setup so we can be more helpful.

I finally gave in and went with water cooling and all I can say is Wow what a difference in the cpu and gpu temps. My gpu temps dropped over 30*C, but unfortunately my pump died within one day of installing the water cooling system (waiting on new unit now). But even with a bad pump (only could muster max 1800 rpms), the temps on the gpu card dropped more than 30*C when compared to the stock fan curve, which I typically used. The card's temp in stock setting reached 42*C and overclocked with +200 it reached 45*C. The cpu temps dropped about 10*C over the Swiftech H220X and has not gone over 58*C when playing BF3.

It's worth the investment, especially if you don't care too much about aesthetics as you can build an inexpensive system.

I'm at the cellphone at work but I have some pictures here

This one is the side panel fans

This one is my rig

f4197d5270a181bfdd894204c508e00b.jpg

The side panels fans are way loud at 100% more than 2400 rpm each one, I have a sentry3 so I can lower a little

Any advice?

The front 200mm fan wich one you recommend?

Thanks

The side fans are 2 jetflow

Can you guys recommend 2 best 120mm fans to the side panel and one best 200mm fan to the front? Think that can help

If you can stand the colour, Noctua NF-F12s otherwise Gentle Typhoons or E-loops (e-loops only in push though)

I'm with 2 980ti HOF LN2 GOC sli here and without oc I get 1415 turbo boost

But my temps are really high at full load gaming, a heavy game always reach the thermal limit, 83 or 91, always reach when the card uses 100%, I'm on air, and the fans are at 100% speed!!!! but I would like to lower this temps, the thermal paste at the cards are the gelid extreme, I reaplied both and same results, my case is a Cosmos 2 and the cards have 80cm between the top one and the bottom one, in this case the space for a 3 way sli

Is there something I can do or I'll have to stay with this high temps since my fans profiles are already at 100%?

Thaks guys

That temp is unusually high if it reaches up to 91 with 100% fan speed and with 2 side fans blowing, may i suggest to reapply the gelid again but this time do the old fashion way of spreading it instead of the pea size. I find the spreading to be much more effective in my case.

The pea method was not used, the Galax Brazil team mounted the Vga`s in front of me, they used the spread method frown.gif
