Is that 64 max? It looks like you might need to run it a little longer to be sure it doesn't go any higher but if that is really the max I suppose that's not too bad. 11 certainly isn't 20 so that's good and 64 is still well below anything you need to worry about but it sucks that we have to worry about this stuff.

It sounds like you should just try it, and see what sort of temps you get. Unless you are still within some kind of return window and are on the clock to make a decision one way or another.

I'm pleased with tri-sli load temps using reference 580s, after longer periods of testing the middle (hottest) card reaches 88C, with all case fans on low, and the Nvidia card fans reaching a peak of 73% speed. The noise is quite modest; I expected louder out of a triple card setup on air. Running the intake fans on high is pretty loud, though, when compared to the GPU fans, and doesn't seem to make a whole lot of difference in GPU temps - maybe a couple of degrees tops.

I'm not as interested in finding the coolest cards as I am in finding an overall quiet system (and fairly powerful), and I think this setup has met my goals.

Yeah, it won't go any higher than that. I doubt I'll be able to run sig speeds, those already reached temps well into the 80's in the Antec.

I almost feel tempted to ignore the issue because of the case's beauty, but at the same time I value good 470 temps alot. Got that Accelero after all.

Well this has atleast made me pretty sure that I want to wait for Amazon to get it, because I know with them if I end up having to return the case I won't be out $25 shipping each way, they are pretty good about that. What I do need to do soon though is decide between the MSI and my current Asus though but I shouldn't be losing anything if I have to change GPUs because I actually already had to RMA my Asus for a bad fan bearing, so I need to order another 570 but have to decide MSI or Asus for this next one. The cooler on the Asus is really incredible but if it's only working at 2/5 effectiveness (2/5 heatpipes go up the other 3 go down) in this case that would be pretty crummy.

I was able to get some temperatures from a guy on here who has my exact card in a FT02 and it seems to be within about 5C of what I was getting so that's good. Doesn't look like the DirectCUII is affected too badly. I called Asus today to ask about the wick used in it's heatpipes because they haven't gotten back to me in email, and my question went completely over the head of the first two people I talked to, they just transferred my up to their supervisors, the third tier supervisor I talked to still didn't know but he said if I called on Monday that I should be able to talk an engineer directly... should be fun, I'll post up the answer if I'm able to get one but based on the temps I'm actually hopeful that it's sintered powder heatpipes and not just groove.

I really like the Asus DirectCUII output port options, but I wanted to see how well tri-sli performed on my 2560 x 1600 monitor, so a three slot card wasn't an option. My setup is probably overkill, but my wife would probably kill me if she saw three monitors on my desk for larger resolutions.

Fortunately she doesn't know what is inside the computer.

Yea tri SLI is difficult to say the least with these coolers. I'm just happy that with my new motherboard that's on the way I can get 2 of these cards in SLI with one slot open in between them for air or possibly a half height sound card later on. Of course I don't have 2 of them yet but sooner or later the price of these will drop to $250 and then I will pounce!

Jeez you are lucky the wife doesn't know computers, I saw all the SSDs in the pics but didn't count all of them and I knew you were on 1366 but figured it was like a 950 or maybe a 970, but I didn't realize it was 5 SSDs and a 990, that's pretty crazy. Speaking of the 970 that is a really good deal if you think you needed 6 cores, it clocks very very close to your 990 but for almost half price. But I really like your build and I don't want to be one of those people that nitpicks how you spent your money just because you had more of it to spend than me. Hope you enjoy your build, but not so much that the wife takes notice.

Whooo hoo!

finally has it available! Not in stock but the price is right, there was a private seller on there trying to sell it for $300 LOL, but this is $146 with free shipping for me! I still need to rotate my case and see how my temperatures respond but I can't imagine me not buying this case so hopefully it comes in stock soon.

I dont know how i did it, but was able to put it in with little extra force over a normal plug and have it stay in. I think it was from me constantly jamming it it really hard which caused the plastic to bend or something. Anyways, it works just fine now.

Did you get your other parts yet? I really want to see your finished system, since its a beast. And what heatsink are you getting?
