[Official] Corsair Graphite Club [780T/760T/730T/600T/380T/230T] - Page 857

post #8561 of 18197
Anyone had issues with temperatures in SLI with this case?

I have the 600T and 2 x Asus Direct CU II GTX 670's and the top card is getting too hot for my liking. Its reaching around 85c when overclocked and 73c when running stock even with a 100% fan profile. On its own it used to only get to about 66c overclocked. The bottom card is ice cold at 63c max.

Any ideas how to improve my airflow / GPU temps?

I have

INTAKE: CM MegaFlow
INTAKE 2: 80cm drive bay fan
TOP: Corsair H100 with 2 X AP-15's as exhaust
REAR: Corsair AF120 Quiet edition
Side panel: Clear plastic window

So I just removed my 5.25" but... I'm having trouble fitting two 200mm fans in there. Car17 or Devious Dog, how did you do it? The top fan is hitting the 4 little fan controller cable brackets on top.

@Darylrese

Use the mesh side panel to blow cool air onto both cards. whats happening is the bottom cards hot air is being sucked into the top card.

This is why i turned my PSU face up, so it draws air downwards and helps pull the hot air away from my top card.

Also adding a 120 or 140mm fan hanging from the 5 1/2" bays helps too. You can see many other have done this, i used my spare 200mm fan and it works like a treat.

*edit, could also help to flip to H100's fans to pull in cooler air. Atm all your exhaust fans pull up hot air up, which is natural, but your pull the hot air form your gpus through everything. If you create some positive pressure by flipping the top fans as well as flip your psu to pull downwards, it will help the overall case temps and gpus temps.

Okay, I am at work so I can't take a picture of my controller area. But this info should help you out.

Nope.. NO cutting of the fan at all.. if you take the front cover off and the back cover you will then be able to take off the top cover where the fan and usb section is. You should just have 2 screws under this section which will de-couple where all the wires and connectors are. If you look at this section from the side, you will see the section that needs to be cut.

To take out this controller, just pull your round wheel straigh up, you will then have a screw to remove and the PCB board will just come out.

Here is what I am talking about. From the side view


Also you will have to cut flush the two inner bits of metal at the top of your case and remove the pot rivet in the top center which is doing nothing if you have this. You will also have to cut the two inner top lugs that fit into the case section which you have cut flush... This will then give you enough room to move the fan up to the topmost section of your case.

The following image is chrischo when I helped him put in the other 200mm fan



I hope this helps.thumb.gif

Oh my gosh, I can't thank you enough. That is so helpful!

One question though, how should I go about all that cutting? I don't have any fancy tools : /

Edit: Also, does this mean I can only fit the stock fan there are the top? it looks like my Bitfenix SP wouldn't fit in there because it's too thick.

for my 600t i just moved the "stock" 200mm fan down a bit and drilled four new holes for the one above it smile.gif have no problem with the front panel PCB or cables. Seems like less work to me than what DD did biggrin.gif if you want i could post some pictures of how i did it, anyways here is the finished product:

EDIT: i use Cooler Master Mega Flow 200mm fans

Thank-you. I was hoping to keep the side window on my build as i really like it. Using mesh would be good for the cards but won't be as good looking. Also i have used all the fan controller headers in my rig frown.gifrolleyes.gif

I could switch the fans so the hot air in pulled down rather than up, that's a good idea. I have added a 120cm fan to the side of the GPU's ontop of the HDD cage like this...not sure if it will help?

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


I got a 140mm fan doing that and I noticed about 4-5 degrees idle temp difference on my gpu. Load temps I haven't fully tried yet but I saw about 2-3 degrees with a 120 fan there. It does help getting some air my graphics card where my sound card usually blocks it, should give a similar effect on SLI GPU's


BTW, I see you are using sound proofing material on your back panel, do you notice any improvements?

Nah its rubbish, the soundproofing made no difference atall i don't think.

Apparently my cards coolers exhaust heat from the top and bottom, therefore im not sure having the fan at the side of them is going to be much help as it will blow the hot exhausted air back into the cooler.

I guess the only way is going to be fitting a side mesh with some fans on it

I already have 1 Corsair SP120 Quiet fan, if i buy another, would this make a good solution for the side panel fans or will i need the AF120 series?

Allright, I figured as much. My computer is basically inaudible at idle atm so no real need for further sound proofing. But thanks for your input.


Oh okay, A mesh will most likely help quite a bit but it looks so damn ugly in comparison to the window ):

I think the SP series will work just fine for the sidepanel. The SP ones move quite a fair bit of air.
