hahaha, thanks man! Yea, I think I should be very happy if everything works as it is put together. Yea, I always wanted an all black in and out PC, so I am happy. Yea, that CPU cooler looks hot, I saw a pic of it on someone's rig on here and loved it! I might get another MSI Hawk later on when they are $100 just to have a SLI for the hell of it, maybe I will get into some games too, who knows.. thanks for all the help and taking your time to answer. I will post the pics of the final products when complete!

hmm. I did not think of that.. I already ordered. The one I got should be also very good, no? I guess if I do not like it, I will RMA and get that one and buy black fans, which fans would you suggest that I silent and will fit the cooler?

your cpu fan is very good. the noctua is a little bit overkill for 95watt CPU such as the 2500K in my humble opinion
very good build btw. among the top of the line

thanks man! yea, that CPU fan is nice looking and got good feedback on boards! I think I did good for $1050 shipped after I get all my rebates, $70 and free 12 month new egg financing.. Now, I hope it all works when put together!

Now I know this is a bit of a niche problem so I don't expect many replies (I don't honestly know what I can do so I doubt there really is alot I can do)

Okay so in case you haven't guessed I have 2 460's and I'm typing this to see if anyone knows of an aftermarket cooler designed to cool 2 (non standard PCB's) Palit GTX460 Sonic Platinums. The current cooler is a great design and I loved it when I only had 1 in there. But because they are in SLI there is no room between the PCB of the second card and the intake of air for the first card. this means whilst idling *looks at heat monitor* the first card is 14C warmer than the second card.
Card 1:46C
Card 2:32C

Now I'm not saying these temps are bad (considering they're in SLI) but it does worry me some times when I run games and don't realise how hot card 1 gets. I have played games and the exited out to find card 1 was at 90C! Which is not a nice thought. Normally when I play games card 1 sits around 60-80C which isn't quite as bad. But with more graphically demanding games coming out like BF3 I think I maybe seeing more 90C sessions and the thought of one of my GPU's at 90C for long periods of time scares me tbh.

So I was wondering whether anyone had any advise or ideas? I have the FT02 so I can't (and don't really want to) water cool them. I can't simply move card 2 over so there's a PCI space because of my MoBo and case. But if anyone knows of a cooler (that would have to fit the custom PCB remember) designed to cool SLI460 set ups please let me know.

Thanks for reading, I know it's a bit of a mammoth post
I have the same cards.
Right now mine are underwater, with EK Nickel.Acetate Blocks.
Before I did that I reduced the temps of the top card, and my NB to some extent, by making a mount out of a dead CD player case like so, and using a 55cfm/1600rpm fan: This made them run at the same temp. 30c idle, mid 70's in action. It also lowered NB temps by 3C. There's another small fan on the NB, also good for 3c. If I removed either one, NB temp rose 3C. If I removed both temp rose about 6c. I had thought the 120mm would let me remove the 45mm, but no.



The cards are "non-reference", which means coolers from other "reference" cards will not fit. Gainward and Palit use the same non reference pattern.

"reference" = same pcb design as original nvidia example card.

Well TBH i would stay with the ones provided (1x120mm and 1x140mm) because their very quiet and pump a lot of air through the heatsink but if you do not like the look of them then any 120mm will fit the noctua and I'd go with 3 Push-Pull-Push fans to suit your rigs colour system.
