Did you try using MSI Afterburner to change the curve for the fans on the cards? It's a little louder, but it seems to cure the heat problem.

What direction is the coolant in your system flowing? It looks like the pump is sending coolant to the rad, wouldn't it be better to send the hot water from the video cards to the rad first, and then the cooler rad water to the res and the pump and then out to the video cards?

I will measure first chance I get. If it is possible to mount a 360 on top, I don't think there is a way to have more then two fans on it though.

I didn't try that to be honest. Anything over 50% is pretty loud though. What temps are you seeing with yours and at what fan %?
I set up the loop in the standard configuration, at least from what I can tell based on the watercooling threads. I am not sure why you send the pump to the rad first, my guess is the pump itself is generating some heat so the coolest part of the loop is the rad and therefore should be right before the block? I am going to add the 200mm rad, and I am going to go pump, 200 rad, 240 rad, 1st block, 2nd block, reservoir. The only thing that I didn't do that was recommended was run my GPU blocks in parallel (I wasn't worried about the loss in pressure as I think I have more then what I know what to do with at the moment). Not looking forward to draining the loop, but I figure I will treat it like an oil change and figure a way to hang it above me and on its side......upsidedwnsmiley.gif

i have 3 of my fans hooked up to the fan controller but when i spin the nob, its just lowers the led lighting and not the actual fan speed. I have it plugged in for sure but do i have to plug something into the other side of its molex too?

Wow, that's a lotta work. Hope it turns out well.

Here's a screen shot of a 15 minute torture session:

69506970torture.jpg

100% GPU, 66c, 76% fan speed at 4801 RPM. Sure, it's loud (hell, it's not even 100% yet) but it seems to regulate it OK. It's easy enough to change the fan curve with Afterburner. It'll be a little harder to control everything once I get the second card in there, and if Murphy is looking the other way the two cards will work well together.

Did you know there's a HD 6950 BIOS hack available that just turns on the extra shaders and leaves you to control the clock speeds using CCC? Some flashers (so to speak) have been theorizing that the instability some people experience when flashing the 6950 with the 6970 BIOS may be attributed to the memory timings. They created this hacked BIOS so the card keeps it's original BIOS intact other than enabling the extra shaders. That will be my fallback in case the other card doesn't cooperate.

There's a link near the bottom of this page to the shader unlock BIOS:

http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=137136&page=27

If you look through the thread more you can find a shader unlock BIOS for just about any HD6950.

thats a head scratcher but I suppose if you have your fans only connected to the fan controller and they are powered on and spinning you connected the fans correctly and the fan controller is getting power. Only thing I can think of is a loose connection? Molex connectors can slip out, reseat all connections (might as well check the fan connections too).

it was actually this thread that led me to another and then another till I was making my own custom bios with unlocked shaders and stock voltages. I also tried moving the cards around on my mobo, different crossfire bridges, chanting and incense, but nothing made a difference except voltage. I took the high road and water cooled them to take the voltage I needed to hit respectable numbers. I see plenty of posts that show unlocked 6950s running CFX at 880 no problem/almost no voltage increase, hopefully you will too.

It's the lighting in the pic that gives it a cooper appearance.

Okay, so according to my measurements, a 360 rad is possible. You would be half way into the top 5.25 bay, and even with elbow fitting you might lose the second bay as well, but you do have the approx 15 inches you would need to mount the 360 (rounding up to just to be on the safe side). I also found interesting that you more then likely could mount a/the third fan, under the mesh top with a simple mod. Was Corsair trying to implement a 360 rad area but later scrapped the idea?
5723874317_c33d265f7b_b.jpg
Per the pic attached, you do have approximately five inches to play with from the end of the second 120mm fan to the edge of the power/reset button. You could cut a hole through the top of the metal case and plastic trim piece (that is sandwiched by the two plastic end cap pieces on the 600T), creating an opening for this third fan to sit flush with the stock fan opening. Trim down the ribs under the mesh grill (like the other side the stock 120 fans sit under) and you would be in business. Best of all with the stock grill in place you couldn't tell at all there was any modification. Me likey, I am tempted to try, maybe next mobo upgrade I would give it a shot.

I was looking for a thread just like this.

Ok, I've decided what I'll need to finish my PC which are:

lolololom.jpg

But I want to know a couple things about the case itself.

1.Does it come with stand-offs? If not, no big deal I can just take the ones from my diablotek-evo and transfer them over.

2. How easy is it to work with cable management wise? I have crosair 600w CX.

Yes it does.

The cable management is superb. Lots of room between the MoBo tray and the side panel.
