As much as I want to SLI I know I'll be single GPUs for life. Unless there's a crazy deal on both GPUs and waterblocks for it.


By the way are there any notable liquid cooling sales coming black friday and christmas? I could probably tie that in with my GPU purchase during that time frame.

I'm idling at 28c @ 801Mhz fan at 40%.
Gaming I'm around 54c
Hope that helps

Well I must say I made a mistake. I had no idea how much of a nightmare the air pocket on the FNB model would be with a 580. I was going to cut 2x120mm intake on the bottom, but now I have realized there is 0 chance of SLIing my 580 due to PSU clearance issues... IDK if it is specifically stated, but I would like to +1 for a warning on the parent post of this thread for this issue. High end GPU + A05FNB = sad panda. Of course I'm even more happy because I already placed my order for a few FNB accommodations such as the 140mm fan and a grill which I had to *settle for* as in my opinion there are 0 attractive reasonably priced 140mm grills. Looks like out of this new build which has now cost me ~$2,400 I have had to return my case, speakers, external dvd, and 5 fans... But I will put in a word that once I am done this will be one sexy beast, as long as my wallet isn't bleeding first...

Can you take a picture? What do you mean how is the psu getting in the way of your video cards? Also just throwing this out there since I'm really confused about why video cards are an issue in this case. But if in doubt would it work better with a matx mobo with SLI

Well, the FNB is not reverse mounded so my 580 lightning lines up just about with the top of my PSU with the heat-sink sticking out past it (which kills the chance of SLI). This is all fine and dandy, but it creates an air pocket between the bottom of the case, GPU, and PSU. 580's are a pretty big chunk of hardware.

Wow nice deal! Sadly I'm short on funds right now so a new GPU is out of the question.

I'm currently idling at 56C and my load is close to 70C. This heat pocket is intense. I need to cut that hole asap.

I just found a template for the MNPC slotted grill, I edited it a bit and now I'm going to see if a shop around here can fins me some scrap aluminum and cut it for me.

does that grill come with mounting hardware by any chance?
post #2120 of 3785
It does not. Which I was personally fine with, as I used socket head screws almost everywhere in my build.
