Wow, those 3-slot Asus cards sag a lot! That would drive me nuts!

Thinking of buying two and running in the following fan configuration...

top two fans - exhaust
rear fan - h70 push/pull
4 x side fan - intake
stock front fan - intake
bottom case fan - push - I will use the space where the HD cage can be move to (next to the PSU) to push air up through the case and out of the top exhaust fans.

Thoughts?

Check my Sig for my build log! wink.gif

Try this to cure GPU sag:

1 - Loosen screws
2 - Prop card up with a pen, small book, kitten, etc...
3 - Tighten screws back down

Yeah all the reference 6990's have the radial slyle GPU cooling where it blows out both ends. The FT02 is one of the best aircooling cases out there which is why I thought about just getting another one with the newer AP181 fans but due to the radial design cooling on my 6990's I don't think the FT02 is working in my favor.

The 6990 sits almost butt against the 180mm fan with about 1 cm between the two due to the length of the card and you can just feel the 6990 dumping hot air out where the fan is suppose to be blowing cool air in.

That's one reason why I thought I'd maybe get better temps out of a case that has the option of installing multiple fans on the side panel like the 600T SE or HAF 932 Advanced.

Yes, I routed the cable over the motherboard and between the back fan and the i/o shield and then out the back hole. Worked just fine and had plenty of room too hook it up to my rear USB 3.0 ports.

I used the supplied USB3 expansion cable that I got with my motherboard, took off the back plate and stuck it behind the mobo tray. Nice and tidy, and with no wires sticking out the back of any pci slots.

Yeah, that's how I'm doing it right now, but it essentially kills a slot on my motherboard to use that first pci hole.

Wondering if there was any other way to use it. It won't work if I try to water cooling grommet, too short.

You could always bust out the drill and make your own hole.

There are other options. There is a usb 3.0 connector that will allow you to connect to the motherboard header.

I may look for that when it becomes an issue.

I just haven't found any of those types on a US retailer yet.
