Well, after playing BF2 for a little over 30min, my top card (GTX570 HD SC) topped at 80c with an average of 78c, and the bottom card (GTX570 HD) topped at 43c with an average of 4c, I should say constant temp, not average, but I guess you know what I meant. I'm going to try putting the side panel, and give it another shot tomorrow.

Apparently 80C is fine for a 570. Under heavy load, while gaming, my top 6950 will top out around 70C and the bottom one around 45C with the side fan mounted. There is also a sound card wedged between the PSU and the bottom video card. They really only run that hot when running benchmarking programs like Unigine Heaven and 3DMark11. If I run Kombustor the top card will get to 92C and the bottom one will reach 86C. The cards remain solid but unbearably loud.

I wonder if you took out your side window and attached a piece of cardboard to the window cutout with a fan mounted to it, if it would simulate what it might be like having a fan mounted to the window. That way you could see if replacing the window or modding it is worth your time.

Is it due to the connection problem or the fan? Thanks!

The final cable management....I hope. Every time I examine the pictures closely I notice things that could be done better. The weird thing is I love doing cable management in this case despite some of its shortcomings. I managed to get rid of one molex connector from the power supply as hide the front audio cable as its not black so it really stands out. I changed the route of some of the cables behind the motherboard as well. The back goes on nice and smooth rather than having to fight with it.

Thanks. It's definitely one of the best things I have bought so far. The voltages are solid and the fan rarely comes on even if you run it on normal mode. I think it looks great too. The only downside is it's a little expensive. I got the 860W for $219 CA from NCIX. I have to run it with the fan up because the ventilation holes don't line up with the fan on longer PSU's in the Scout.

I wonder if you took out your side window and attached a piece of cardboard to the window cutout with a fan mounted to it, if it would simulate what it might be like having a fan mounted to the window. That way you could see if replacing the window or modding it is worth your time.

Well, last night I was lurking inside of the closet where I keep all my PC stuff and boxes (in case I want to sell any part) and found my original scout side window, with a scratch about 4" long mad.gif but at least I could use it to put a fan in it, and see how that improves my temps. BTW great idea about the cardboard, I was getting ready to cut another windows here at work LOL. REP+
