Hiho! smile.gif

well its recommended to have at least a 600W psu for only ONE GTX 580, so I'm assuming with with a TDP of 244, you will be getting awful close to pushing a 850W PSU to the max, I think you could get away with it though.

...that's assuming you want to overclock on the other side and the extra headroom of a 1000W PSU would be appreciated.

If you plan on sticking with the GTX 580's, then you may want to consider getting a higher watt PSU to be safe, just remember, do NOT skimp on quality.

Hey all I recently purchased this case for my newest build. It's probably a bit too late to ask now, but how's the airflow in this case (generally speaking)?

I'm going from a CM Storm Scout with an Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro, and a GTX 470 with average idle/load temps for all my components

sad day for me, usb i/o retention screws broke and now I am waiting on response about rma replacement front panel....

air flow seems realy good... provided you have fairly decent cable management practices.... and the way your cpu cooler is pushing the air...

I kept a good temp of about 37c idle and 51c full load with my cooler in this case with a 4.11 OC on air

i looked through every single page of this thread and ordered my new rig, haven't built a PC since 2004, WOW have things changed (and RAM is so cheap!)

Here's a breakdown:

NZXT Vulcan
Intel i5 2500k
Asetek 545LC 92mm WC
650w Rosewill PSU
Gigabyte Z68MA
60G SSD
eVGA GTX 570


I will be doing a push pull with the 545LC on the exhaust (thanks to this thread!) and a high flow 200mm on the side panel pushing air in, a top fan (or two, depends on noise and temperatures) as exhaust, the front fan I am unsure if I will have as intake or exhaust since the lower 3.5 mount will be removed.

Thanks to everyone who has made this thread so great, I almost pulled the trigger on a different set up but thanks to all the pictures and explanations here I have decided to go this route.

Look forward to hearing feedback once pics are up!
