Don't you know anyone that can borrow you a card so you can check out what temps you get? If not try to find a really cheap 760 from ebay or something should be plenty out there.

I own 2 identical GIgabyte GTX760s, but my mobo (ASRock B85 Pro) doesn't support SLI. I'll get new mobo and possibly cpu when I replace Nodes GPU and thus having spare GTX760 for R4.

But now you mentioned it, could I mount both 760s on board and run some program to test temperatures even they are NOT in SLI? Because if both run at maximum, heat production would be approximately same as running SLI at maximum power.

Yes, you can run two cards without SLI . One card atttached to one monitor will render the frames for that monitor and the other card will render frames for the other monitor. However, the cards will not run synchronized, so what you see on one card is not what you'll see on the other card. You'll never get both cards to work together for rendering frames. So you can basically run two games on each card/monitor and check the temps.

Hmm, would some cryptocoin mining be perfect test, as they usually operate on non-SLI/non-crossfire?

Should be fine. smile.gif Myself I'd go for 2 heavy games.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this thread, its been very helpful for me to make a decision to buy a new case. I have decided to buy a ARC MIDI R2, which should be a nice upgrade on my dated cooler master praetorian.

I was also thinking of upgrading the case fans and adding one more, and I do realise that a lot has been said on that subject in this thread, but I'm still not sure what type of fans to get or how to set them up. Would Static pressure case fans be good at the front of the case as the front panel is in front of them? Should I just go all static pressure fans for intake? (Will have one intake from underneath) And the 1 exhaust fan out the back, is it worth just having that static too just so all the fans sound similar or am i over thinking this too much now?

2x FurMark will do the job if it can run on both cards, not sure how some applications/games handle multiple outputs if you could really run two games or they would both force themselves on one card with the primary monitor.

Static pressure fans all the way if you can pay for them. Exhaust doesn't matter, but any fan that has some filter, grill, rad, ... should have decent static pressure otherwise they drop in airflow more.
Although even cheap silent fans are enough and sometimes better than the Fractal fans :/

It comes with three 140mm fans (top, front, rear)? I'd go with rear and two in front. Maybe additional intake in bottom. I am not an expert, but from what I have learnt is this: Good combination of airflow and statick pressure, not just one. Huge 200mm fans with near zero pressure are not good. Also, go with more intakes than exhaust. Positive pressure (intake>exhaust) also helps a little keeping dust out, as "extra" air goes from all those tiny holes in your case. If intake is less than exhaust, air is drawn from those same holes and dust within.

Noctuas are of course always good, silent choice. But, they are expensive and you might find them little bit of overrated. Fractals own silent series r2 fans are not that bad (same goes with all similiary priced fans), but don't expect miracles.

But, all in one sentence: Put one stock fan rear, two in front and see what your temps are.

I'll see it on some day if FurMark works.

Anyway, static pressure is more important in cpu fans or on radiator fans. Or if there is lots of stuff in front of airflow, lets say hdd-rack. CM JetFlo was rated good and not too costly fan with good pressure in this cooling guide here little while ago.
