I have a suggestion.

Clean up those cables! eek.gif Those cables are killing the airflow in your case.

There's a plethora of room behind the motherboard tray for cable management. I've got 12 fans and a bunch of extra cables around my case and they all fit.

It will improve the look of the case as well as improve airflow substantially.

My 2cents.gif

Didn't wanna sound like a jerk. Just so much potential is lost when a case has too much clutter. And it's an easy fix!

Four hands are always better than just two. And those other hands come in handy late at night too. wink.gif

I wasn't trying to rag on you man. Just helpin a brother out.

You can snake most of the cables you have in there straight through to the back panel and just run them back through the grommet holes to wherever they need to go. Easy peasy.

Oh and welcome to the dark side. Where instead of having cookies we have an addiction to $500 video cards. redface.gif

Like they did here.

Nail polish remover.

I tried using Denatured Alcohol and nothing happened. But strangely Acetone worked great.

Just keep notice of the anodized finish. Make sure you aren't taking the plating off. :/

What cards were they and what was wrong with them?

Strange that two cards would fail at the same time.

Interesting. You have the h100 in p/p with ap14/15. Confused as to why you have 2 different speed fans? How do you have it set up? A p/p 14 and a p/p 15, or 15's push 14's pull.
