As i can see your are an airflow madness guy and really cares about temperatures. Yes im pretty close to you in that case. Your case is to small as I can see all things are really getting thick there. You should think on investing in a new case with a enough room to spare. Well you gave me some ideas to mod my case anyway, specially that cooler on the back pci bays, thats a good idea I've never thought of. I must try that one. Good luck, hope you've got nice temps.

You're wrong!
I'm "an airflow madness guy" becouse I do care about temperatures.
I won't worry about 'em, they're low enough. The last temp I was getting to improve (switcing from P12 to F12 push fan on my D14) was the cpu temp. I've manage to get (record) a max core of 55°C (at 4.2 Ghz, daily) on gaming session during TESV Skyrim (I was getting up to 60°C before). wink.gif
Yeah, I'd even like a case upgrade but this is another story, I just don't need it righ now. I'm allways monitoring the room temp and inside case temp and they're the same even at low-medium fan speeds adjusting them as required. smile.gif

your case size does limit you somewhat.I think I got you beat though.Im cheating as its a rare cool morning here in Florida.lol

cpu overclock 3.0 to 3.8 .both graphics cards overclocked 790/1000 to 850/1050 they will do alot better but this is my auto overclock with afterburner to keep voltage down. It also turned off my custom fan profile so when I ran heaven 2.5 to show load temps my fans dropped to 25% instead of raising so the cards should run even cooler.

All fans at max rpm except graphics card coolers my fan controller took a dump.I didn't think two fans per channel was too much but I was wrong.lol

I've still got my top fan.. But i've got the side fan off. At the moment i've got it inside the case for the graphics cards! But it gets in the way a bit, do you think i'd be better off moving it to the top bays?

Seeing as my RAM runs hot..

If your talking about the 230mm fans then yes the one at the top bays does a lot more for for internal temps.It makes the whole front of your case an intake and its more effective then you might think.the one on the bottom does more cooling hard drives then video cards. Its push pull 230mm fans on my many Terabytes of storage as I still have the fan in the front behind the coolermaster name.I traded the red led fan for a all black one my brother was happy to do the trade as his system is red(same case) .The 230mm is great for that but not as effective blowing on the cards.If you have an extra fan the one on the back is the best for keeping internal case temps down for me not to mention keeping the cards cool.My cpu rad is externally mounted and does not effect my case temps so my video cards where the number one thing heating up my case.Adding that fan will do wanders for your case temps especially at load when it counts.with my current set up my ram is barely warm its overclocked and overvolted and just warm enough that you can tell its on.This is also a ram thing personally I think the slower clock and tighter timing of ddr2 made it perform better than ddr3 unless you buy some really high dollar ddr3.But one place it does shine is ddr3 runs at lower voltage, higher clocks and lower temps and is cheaper to make.you may have to get a dedicated ram cooler.

I like your blue fans since is my favorite colour as a Gigabyte fan however I only have premium quality fans (most of them). Sadly these top 140mm NB are the only blue fans (but without the lights) that I have for now. sad-smiley-002.gif

20120102103614_s6300573_tn.jpg

If I change my mind, what would you recommend me as a top quality 120mm or 140mm blue led fan? smile.gif

Finally upgraded my 8800GT to a Sapphire 6850 1GB. The first one had artifacts but the replacement one will be in today, hope it works out!
