If you like the looks, you can work on your card cooling, however it will go from horrible to ok I bet, while the Haf is already great for GPU cooling.

My 460's have a fan under them blowing up and I have another blowing horizontally at them both. Remember they are 460' not GF100's and they still get awfully hot....

Seriously not only, GPU even HDD temps rise as well in 800D. Mine HDD went from 29 HAF X to 37 in 800D just at idle.... So think about it... HAF X performs really good than 800D..

Well if you can manage to put FANS on side panel and near performance with HAF X but it's GPU duct which makes HAF X flow air directly to Vid cards....

should I try to do this or go with HAF-X ?

the 800D just look way better then the HAF-X....

Well you've seen objective people state time and time again that if you're going to air cool your GPU's you need to have beeter flow than the 800D. If your hell bent on getting it though you could consider modding it which will be a terrible pain in the ass since you need more air from outside the case rather than just adding fans to the interior of the case and pushing the air around.

Or you could buy waterblocks for your GPU's, an extra rads, etc so that you run everything at reasonable temps.

Or you can buy the HAF-X for considerably less than the 800D and accomplish what you want.

If you feel skilled enough to cut a hole in the 800D window, go for it. Otherwise (I was assuming that you wanted a stock vs. stock opinion) the HAF is the better option.

Spend $100 more on the 800D over the HAF-X and then cut a hole in the case and spend $30 more for a door fan to get it on par to the HAF-X in performance?

I'd say yes, I prefer the look of the 800D, and it's a case that I'm not going to change for a long time. As in my sig, I've invested in it to the point that I can swap pretty much anything I want in it and have the performance I need...

Fair enough.

I keep getting ninja'd so I'll be quiet now... wink.gif

Edit: Not to restate the obvious, but SLI cards are going to be hot and a PITA to properly cool in any setup, but for stock vs stock, on air, yes the HAF is the best performer. Looks are a different and subjective matter.

If you've got the funding and the desire then definitely. You'll be able to push the cards a lot harder and keep the temps down.

If you start getting into multiple, hot Fermi cards, it can be- there are plenty here that are fine with air cooling and don't mind high temps on air from SLI or other factors, I happen to enjoy WC as a bit of a hobby, and like that increase in cooling performance, so I'd say yes. That said, it's obviously a rabbit-hole of time and expense, though most of us watercoolers would say it's all very worth it!
