Some interesting stuff going on in that first picture. Is that a duct you modded into the side? Also I think if you used one of those magnetic fan filters (the square kind), you could use that as trim around the fan mounted onto the side panel.

I know some people feel that way, but I don't think 3DMark11 is indicative of the temps you will see either. I rather have too much cooling then not enough.

I wanted to get the setup wet but I got in trouble and being 16, I don't have control over that.....I have a xigmatek 200mm fan as an intake in the front and I have 2 cooler master sickle flow red led fans in the top as exhausts. Heres a pic and sorry for the blurr, I took it with my incredible.
thanks for the help. If this thing gets off the ground I will make sure everyone is clear on what to do so we can approach something resembling scientific data.

I have not used Heaven benchmark for temperture testing, I think I need to compare that with Kombustor and see which is more effective. I would love to try tonight but I don't have a waterblock on my CPU yet frown.gif.

Food for thought, thanks George.

@CesarNYC: I think I've finally landed on a setup that works for me with the cooling. I'll post a diagram of the fans/case and I've been recording my temps for the past day. Let me gather another couple days of solid data, (Idle, gaming, normal browsing, stress test, etc...) and I'll put together a spreadsheet detailing my results.

look forward to it! I have 4 x silentwings USC fans on the side mesh waiting to install and test with an msi 580 lightning xtreme. I just wish installing a 200mm 30mm fan in the front was easy!

I most play bc2 at max settings for extended periods of time, and I hit 72-75c/60-62c (xfire) Ambient temps are 29-35c so my room is pretty hot as is. Normal temps are 58c-62c/46c idle. I used the mesh panel instead of the clear panel, with two side intake fans directly over the gpu's and it dropped my temps 4c compared to the clear panel.

From what Corsair George said, my cards are cooled by the "radial" method and adding the side fans really helped. I'm thinking bout trying the set up he mentioned having the front fan as an exhaust and top/back as intake and see if that improves it even more.

I got those from www.frozencpu.com

They sell the extensions like mine (Modright) and they also do custom sleeving...

For those interested in sleeving their cables and wants to do it themselves, check out mdpc-x.com. some of the best quality sleeves and kits in my opinion.

If you are just looking for premade extensions, check out NZXT or modright.

No benchmark program really is. Once your GPU is at 100% I fail to see how you can stress it more. The crappy thing about other benchmarks is that they allow a cool down time between runs. Besides, folding is extremely cpu intensive and it's a real life application. Furmark may run the GPUs to the max, but in time we'll see games that push the same limits. If the card can't handle Furmark then it's not a very good card. Considering it's basically the standard used here and on other sites for testing GPU temps, if you don't use it you're results are hard to compare if not meaningless.

Those are pretty good temps. 18c idle for your CPU using an H70 is incredible (no, really...can we see a screenshot?). I've seen full blown water setups that don't have an 18c idle temp. On idle with a 23c ambient I'm getting 41c on my lower card, and while doing this my upper card is bouncing between 4% and 20% usage and running at 54-55c. I would say your temps are OK. Are you running Afterburner? If not I would recommend it. You can increase the temp/fan-speed ramp and cool your cards a little more with a higher fan speed. Your load temp is ballpark too.

Yeah, too bad Corsair doesn't sell a white cable kit for their power supplies.

Just for the heck of it, I am going to do a torture test on my computer while I make dinner. I am going to turn all my fans up all the way, run Prime 95 and Furmark, monitor with Fanspeed, CPU Z and Afterburner, and screen shot the entire lot after I eat. However, this may not be an excellent test for most people because of how much my case has been moded. At least it should give ballpark numbers for stock HD6970 cards in crossfire.

If I don't post the results tonight it means I blew something up . I'll do an "idle" screenshot right now.

Thats outstanding, thank you for this. I hope to take whatever results you find and have those who have volunteered to validate your findings. If I can be of any help let me know.

It would be a big help if you did. Seems like you know what your temps are now for your GPU, but if you wanted to you could do a few loops of whatever you were comfortable with (3DMark11/Kombustor/Heaven) to establish a baseline, then make the swap in fan direction and repeat your loops. I hope someone with a TwinFrozer card can do the same.

It is possible he is reporting his Core temps? Since we haven't formalized reporting yet it's going to be a mess comparing. I would like to see everyone post screenshots, it will just make everything easier in the end to analyze and compare results. I know for some this is remedial but not for everyone. Perhaps someone could write a mini-guide on how to post temp results?
