hey, i'm using msi 1080ti gaming (not X) at stock and my temps hover between 70c - 75c.

i'm using 2x Noctua NF-A12x25 as front intakes (also using Noctua's 140mm to 120mm brackets so that i can position both fans more in line with CPU cooler and the gpu) and Noctua NF-F12 as exhaust on the back (also another NF-A12x25 on the CPU cooler but i don't think that's really relevant)

i'm using custom fan curves for all the fans so those beastly NF-A12x25's only crank up when i'm gaming.


on a slightly related note i found that with a decent cooler and good fans the roof of the case can be covered without any increase in temps, whether its idle or load.

also if you remove the PCI covers from the case your gpu temps could drop by 1c-3c, but i haven't done much extensive testing on whether it really makes a difference since i'm happy with my temps and the potential drop in temps doesn't seem to be worth it to me.

if i had to guess i'd say your silent wings fans and the stock fractal fan aren't good enough in terms of airflow, have you tried putting your NF-A12x25 as an intake, positioned as low as it gets ? those fans move serious amount of air.

Can you install two 140mm fans and a 120 in the front? I also have 2 3.5mm HDD's for storage outside of the SSD so will that limit my ability to have 3 120mm fans (or the proposed 2 140mm and 1 120mm)?

I strictly air cool so no consideration is needed for radiators.
2x 140mm and 1x 120mm is possible in the ATX version. 3x 140mm is plausible but it'll be a tight squeeze. 140s here are be quiet Silent Wings 3 High-Speed, and one of the stock Fractal fans.

Thanks for the suggetion. AMybe wits the static pressure of the a12x25 that will make a difference. I have tried a a14 on as intake on 100% speed and it barely made a difference though.

Dont waste your money on changing from one of the best fans to one of the best fans. It won't make any difference. In fact noctua (at least the a14 and a15) at high RPM, have a really annoying sound mark, where silent wings have a very pleasing one. Noise and performance levels are within margin of error.

If u wanna fix your GPU thermals without changing the case, the cheapest solution i see, is to mod your GPU with 2x120mm fans. I'll do this myself for mine, in the near future, when I'll change some hardware in the PC.

Extra static pressure won't do anything for case fans. You see, static pressure is to push the heat from hot spots. The fan needs to be very close and perpendicular to the hot spot. In this case scenario the blow from the intake and the GPU are parallel. Pushing the same amount of air with more force and speed bellow the GPU, it will make even harder for the fans of your GPU to grab some air from the intake "stream".

Yea I guess the best/cheapest solution would be to change the case in the near future. I though about putting a aio on my gpu but that might be a little bit too much.

The 120mm fan mod will give similar performance for 4-5times lower price.

And if u change the case, considering the GPU you have, you will need to get a spacious one. That's why, at least for me it's not an option, and I'll rather cope with the case i have since there's no other option (just a lot of equal ones).

Define S with 3x140mm it's incredibly good for the GPU u have. My brother has the define S and a 1070ti gaming x, and it's getting bellow 70°C with 1400rpm on it. I know the 1070ti has a much lower power draw, but it also has a much slimmer radiator on it.

^ With an OC'd reference cooler GTX 680 which is a hot running card I never saw temps past 72c in my define s. The cooling was good enough I removed two fans and just used 2x140mm intakes for the whole system. Worked great and was always quiet.

Got my new 9600k build set up in the Fractal Design Define Mini C based on HZCH's setup that I quoted on the last page. I love it. It's a huge upgrade coming from my Corsair 250d. For one, the 1080Ti actually fits without me worrying about breaking it And the overall design is noticeably quieter. I'm tempted to even replace my Corsair 450d desktop build with one of these because I'm now realizing how much of an eye-sore the dust filter is on the front of the 450d. Was really a breeze to build in. Now I'm ordering one of those Morpheus II coolers now that I have all that extra space Excited to have a silent GPU

EDIT: One thing I was curious about if anyone knew...

Assuming that I'm using the same fan and that I'm adjusting both setups to the same volume - which moves more air? 3x120mm front fans or 2x140mm front fans? I've read a lot of different arguments for both but it's never very scientific because they're never controlling for sound volume (which to me seems like the obvious way to compare the desirability of the fan).

The two fans are securely mounted, it's like the front grill is loose which it is not.

Thanks
Does the noise go away if you remove the bottom filter?

I opened the case up and went through everything and it all looked fine so I close the case and tested again and the noise disappeared so it must have been something loose in the case.

Thank you for getting back to me and it's good to see actual manufacturers supporting their products.
