Thanks! Did you notice much of an improvement on the temperature?

I did, I have both my cards folding 24/7 and they never get above 75c. When gaming they are even lower. I have thought about swapping out the stock fan for an aftermarket, but they came with the Asus Glaciator Fansinks which honestly, do a great job cooling.

Rule of thumb though, just about anything aftermarket is better than stock.

Woah 75c would be nice! Could make a cuppa tea with mine as it is!!

Figured that rule of thumb, just always been a bit cautious of getting that technical... feel a bit more confident these days so we'll see.

Well the 75c is the top card, the bottom one tops out around 63-65c. So yeah, putting some AS5 will definitely make your temps drop. Though I'm sure there are other TIM's that will drop it even further. Just make sure you do your research and choose the one that is best for you. Good luck.

Just finished building into my Scout. This thing is great, aside from the questionable PCI slot brackets. The cable management is so nice that even I couldn't screw it up.

I might share a few pictures once my cold cathode kits come in from Xoxide.

Yeah, I just got an e-mail from xoxide in reply to me wondering where my stuff was. They said "It is taking anywhere from 5-7 business days for us to process and ship orders, we will let you know when your order is shipped out." So there's no telling when we're getting our stuff.

What I need to be doing is selling off all the components I've replaced, and my "super awesome red-mod" kit...fans, LED bars, cathode bars, sleeving kits, etc...but I need 35Rep before I can post in the for-sale section. Ugh.

If you have a blue CCFL kit I might be interested. I was going for red+green but some of my non-colorblind friends reminded me that those colors don't exactly mesh to most eyes.
