In fact I'm almost positive that it is because I'm pretty sure this 6990 has caused the middle fan to start making a clicking sound after a few days use.

I'm considering looking at Corsair's new white 600T SE since it has an optional mesh side panel with 4x120mm fans and then I can reverse the front 200mm fan to be an exhaust. And I've considered the HAF 932 Advanced as well since i could do the same setup in it but I just don't really care for its looks. I don't know maybe I'll just get another new FT02 that has the better AP181 fans and hope the 6990 doesn't kill them lol.
Are the fans in that case blowing down? The 6990 exhausts from both ends, so I figure you need to have the fans sucking the air out and blowing down in that FT02 case, if they are not doing so already.

The 3x180mm fans are all intakes with only a 120mm fan up top for exhaust and it's done that way to create positive pressure in the case. They wouldn't work right blowing down out of the case.

I would request I be removed from the group as I have sold mine.

Can try difference configurations for the fans, 3 x 180mm exhaust, rear 120mm intake instead of exhaust, top 120mm intake, side panel intake and front intake to create negative pressuse. Unless you are looking reasons to change case

I just put the Koolance Vid-AR699 waterblock on my 6990 and the VReg temps are through the roof, like 80-90 degrees under load. I reseated it and tried the thicker thermal pad but still the same result.

I am using 2 VID-AR699 too but still lazy with the tubings to check the Vreg temps. Guess what, I forgot to put the temp probes on both the blocks, so opened it up to realize I missed the thermal pad where the Vreg supposed to be. I missed that on both VID-AR699s. Couldn't believe to make that mistake, but it happened.

The diagram came with the blocks is too small to read, I took the stock cooler to see where all the original thermal pads are supposed to be located then did the same to VID-AR699s.

Edit:

This diagram will show exactly where to put the 0.5mm pads better than the diagram came with the blocks.

Are you sure your covering all the VReg's? There are alot of them on the card. You can see them here on the EK's Installation manual http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/shop/EK...1109835319.pdf
