    Je suis totalement d'accord avec vous cher monsieur. Il se pourrait fort bien que les ventilateurs rendent mieux avec leurs ailettes toutes de blanc vêtues.

    Ok, I take my coat :D. Fans with white blades would look awesome :thumb:

    Hi Fred, i'll give you a lil lesson of french!!! :p
    I translate only for you our french posts...

    Nice overcloking Mister.

    That's not my fault, this Graphic Processor Unit is readily adaptatable, like the Intel i7 2600k. they easy rise in high frequencies.

    Rise well, and temps are reasonable for this frequeny.


    ---End of the translation---

    Hope you'll be satified Freddy!! ;)

    Have a nice day! :D

    The second aluminium graphik card shell is almost finish.

    Have to paint the shell, extend the fans cables and sleeve them...

    Some pictures to do your own opinion...

    Is this any good?

    It doesn't mention 2.0 but I figure if it fits the 16x pci-e soecket, and it's just wire extensions, it should do the trick?...

    Hi Guille,

    Thanks you, sounds cool...

    Nobody allready told you? Curiosity killed the cat!! :waah:

    Because the space between the cards is too tight. The VGA on the TOP don't breath enought ;)

    Have you seen what JA12 and Suicidneil have suggested?

    Do you think if there are all equal?

    I prefer this one, probably because it's the most expensive (expensive=quality), i know it's not always true, and the description match with what i'm looking for:

    The one suggested by SuicideNeil is PCIe 1.0 compliant. You need PCIe 2.0. 2.0 and 1.0 are physically compatible, just the bandwidth is higher on 2.0. This could work, but you could have issue if the riser cannot handle the higher speed (the change are low but .... I'd play ion the safe side)

    About JA12 suggestion, I'd go with the third one (also linked in your post). The first one has no mention about the PCIe revision, and the second one is only suited for single slot cards.

    why use 2*2 80mm fans when 1 120fan attached to GFX 'back' (parallel to case intake fans) can
    a) blow both GFX atonce
    b) draw all hot air from case
    c) feeds with cold air from outside of case (some airduct)

    Hi,

    In aircooling (if i have lernt my lessons well) don't consider just the airflow volume, there is the air pressure.. And if i remember, the air pressure on a heatsink is the more important.

    If I say a ********, let me know... :blush:

    But my case design will form 2 airduct:
    - Processor airduct.
    - VGA airduct.
