GTX 480's compared to a GTX 460
All tubed up and filled!
Replaced the top cathode with UV LED's
Great case and nice start!!
Faulty PSU which needs to be returned...
This is the issue with the PSU. I am going to return it and may pick up a CoolerMaster Silent Pro Hybrid M1300 to replace it...
Busted the green LED's in the CPU block, as well as the two LED's in the res...
Replaced the LED in the CPU block. Now I am contemplating replacing both 480's with a single 7970 with waterblock. The 480's are heating up the loop and making the CPU to IDLE at 50 degrees C.
Instead od replacing those GTX 480's you should consider making dual loop.
You can istall 240 mm rad in front and 120 mm in the top of the case.
There is no room for extra radiators except for a 120 up top but I suppose I could place a radiator on top of the 540 rad?
If there is no room,make it.
But you can also try with sandwich rads if you use slim ones.
Ah ha! So your saying place another Magicool 540 rad on top of the three AP181's? The radiators have four ports at the end by the way. I will be sleeving the cables which will make them sit flat, so yes, i believe there should be room!
go on, squeeze it in, you know u wanna. lol
Anyway, how much of an improvement would I see if I used a second 540 rad? It will cost me $150...
Temps would be like 30-40 C for CPU and 40 C for GPU's in idle.
At the moment temps are 50-60 C for CPU and 40-50 C for GPU's in idle.
