I'm not so sure.. Not trying to pick a fight here and I am a bit of a freak for cooling my kit as much as possible, but I don't rate the included Fractal fans at all, I've used about 10 models of 140 and 120mm fans and they're about the worst I've used for actual cooling, they pull next to zero air into a case through a filter, and I believe R5 is even more restrictive on intakes then the Arc Midi R2 I'm using currently. Not to bad as an exhaust I suppose.

I know I'm not running SLI and that 970's run cooler then my 780 ACX (MSI gaming 970 is 10c cooler according to TPU testing then my 780 ACX SC if you believe their testing), but even so you are still going to be dumping a lot more heat into the case then I am that is all going to get pulled through your air HSF. And to keep those 970's cool you may have to set up a custom fan profile on the cards which is going to completely negate the benefit of having only 2 silent fans in the first place.

Example right now I'm Folding with my CPU bone stock because I'm finishing up tuning up a new RAM kit with my card at stock voltage 1123 core with a custom fan profile 23.5 c ambient. I have 1x Thermalright TY147 exhausting and one on bottom intake at 12v on a controller. Front intakes are 1 Noiseblocker B12-4 (2400RPM) at half revs and one GT AP15 (1850rpm) at half as well. I've also repasted the GPU and removed all the HDD cages with no cables in sight. To be fair some games push the GPU a bit harder.

The pics in the sig rig except swap one of the Noiseblockers for a GT and the R2 at the back for another TY147. Anyway temps



I'm just imaging with those weak as Fractal fans, overclocked CPU 2X970's and all the HDD cages involved you might struggle with SLI

By all means try with the stock fans like that first and see how it goes. But I think you might find you will need to add more and better fans to keep things from cooking.

If youre not overclocking the CPU to much and you dont mind running the cards and CPU hot you may just be O.K, take into account my slight OCD about keeping stuff cool as well 2cents.gif
i was never suggesting not adding more fans. I only said the included fans were silent. i never said they were adequate for the whole setup.

All the fan speed stuff aside the gigabyte gaming g1 gtx 970 only run at 55-60c with an overclock. They are by far the coolest running 970 out there.

So my point is that the r5 is a capable case using those cool running cards to achieve the lower case fanspeeds if the appropriate fans are used.

The gpu fanspeeds will need to run above 60% on the top card. The top card is usaully 10c hotter than the lower in sli.

I love my R5, but with a 5820K at 4.75Ghz .1.330V and 2x 980`s overclocked to 1518/2000Mhz is getting quite hot here...

What temps do you have in cpu and gpus?

Ok fair enough. smile.gif

It's just that if I was Reset1101 I would have read your answers like it was good with just the 2 fans, just thought it needed clarifying.

Of course its possible to run SLI in an R5, plenty of room, probably want a couple more / different fans though IMO. If someones running SLI 980/970 with the stock fans at good temps, chime in I'm just going off my own reasoning. thumb.gif

Cpu is around 60¤C under load (AKA bf4) Gpu`s are around 70¤C with a bit of a agressive fan speed. Running a custom Ek loop for Cpu smile.gif

ooowww, owwww i just got my grid+ for my r3 case and found a fractal club!! im soo excited!!

1250w seasonic silent psu ready to go...

so im running with 120mm fractal fans 2 on the front and 1 in the side (gona upgrade to 140mm) intaking and a typhoon 120mm extracting and have been able to game at more or less the at the db of the typhoon extraction fan which has been pretty great so far, now im wondering what is most anyone has got out of this type of set up without water cooling?

gona get a 8320e upgrade under my big heat sink and was thinking of may be a 680 4gb phantom or something, any body got a 290x in their without opening up the top of the case?

Define Rx can more than handle a couple of GPUs. If it struggles it's because of your fans or living in inhumane air temperatures.
R5 has 9 fan positions, so yeah it can handle multiple GPUs just fine.
R4 has 7 positions, no issues either.
post #12318 of 16055
Thanks all of you for your advice. Yes, I was understanding that with 2-3 fans at low rpms would be enough for that SLI. But it seems too risky. I know the case can handle an SLI but what I want to avoid is having 5 fans spinning like crazy to get rid of that heat.

I dont like any fan over 900rpms, thats how demanding I am in terms of noise xD

My R5 is seeing the GPU load temps at about 62C after playing BF4 for a couple of hours at 2560x1440. My CPU gets to about 50C. Are these OK for the R5 or should they be lower? I have 3 140MM fans in my system. Front Top and Rear...

those temps are fine.
