I like the look with the two "Nvidia Titan" coolers on the cards.
And just be clear; Even though the MSI GTX 970 is a reference GTX 980 PCB, that does not mean it has the connector for the light on the cooler. I had to solder a connector on. But it works just fine.
Temperatures for the GFXs after som Crysis gaming was ~79C for GPU1 and ~75C for GPU2.
I could not get a clear core clock from afterburner unless the cards had under clocked them self to 540 mhz?
The fan RPM was ~2200 for GPU1 and ~1800 for GPU2. Which is a bit difference compared to GPU2 was also cooler.
I believe the GPU2 is the "lower" GFX in the case, which is the card where I have installed bought the cooler and therefore applied new thermal paste (Antec formula 7). So that may be the reason. I will later take the cooler of the "whisper quite" GTX 970 edition and apply some new paste. If that doesn't make a change I will try to switch the two GFX around and see if it is the possition in the case that has such a high impact on temperature and fan RPM.
The Noctua S12A below the GFXs was spinning at ~900 rpm.
The cost of the case is around 130 dollars (remember we have some higher taxes here in DK):
Materials: 30 dollars
Laser cutting: 30 dollars
Parvum modding cubes: 25 dollars (shipped)
Fan filters: 15 dollars
Push-bottons and feet: 30 dollars
Overall I'm very happy with the result.
If you want to build it your self, the 2D drawings is uploaded here:
Just remember that the files are made for a 6mm material!
