Well, you probably wanna exhaust that hot air outside your case because right now it's going to your top card, right? Pushing air into them obviously helps some simply by making it move faster but you would probably get better results exhausting. You still have the other fan on your HDD cage, yeah?

that was me! I'm replying on my phone so it's a little hard to be detailed, but the mounts were purchased at moddiy. Just check the fan mount section, and I have pics in my rig (not sure if it can be seen)

Nope I've removed that fan. I can try them as exhausts but I would prefer them as intakes if possible otherwise that hot air is going to get blown in my face lol

I've just refitted a single AP-15 and temps are down to 68c. The Corsair AF120 fans are useless, i will be taking mine back for a refund if i can!

I tried a fan as exhaust and temps weren't very good 75c again, intake seems to give the best results with the AP15 fan and the Corsair SP120 for a happy medium between temps and noise. The AP-15 stops the cards from throttling though which is a big plus dispitwe it making more noise and a bit of an annoying whine noise at full speed.

I'd try one or two fans as exhaust on the side panel (both on the bottom half) and the spot cooling fan on the HDD rack. That way the cards get fed cool air from the intake too. I'd use AFs for the exhaust and an SP or your AP for the spot cool.

That's a nice improvement with the AP as intake too though. Did you check the other temps in your case?

Guys, been playing around with my build this weekend as I have just fitted my new block to my GTX 690. However in the process I have thought about going back to clear coolant with black piping and then RED LEDs on the important stuff. What do you think.


Red Coolant


Clear Coolant

Of course you will have to imagine what it would look like with black piping.

The main reason why I am thinking of this is the Red coolant will stain the clear plastic over time. Let me know what you think as I can buy some clear coolant and black tubing tomorrow for mid weed work on the box.

Oh.. for those that have PM me.. the card specs can be found on my build page

What about black coolant if it exists. Could look cool. But I've always been a fan of black tubeing. Non glossy though.

Tygon Norprene is your answer. I got a roll laying around. It'll definitely give you the industrial look.

You could always spray ain't the clear tubeing with mat black paint. Or maybe (if it works) some of that window tinting paint so you could still kind of see through them.
