    That is a nice looking PC, and bonus points for decomissioned realm server, you must have invested some serious currency into that room!

    I gotta start saving for a pimp PC once I move house...

    blocking the side of a GPU like that is not going to affect temps or reduce airflow, even if it was completely blocked, there is still enough of a gap between the cards to let air go through, what you end up with is a low pressure zone on one side of the fan, that's it
    But FT02's are so bad with aftermarkt gpu's :P Haf x do even a better job there..

    My FT02 keeps my very overclocked GTX 670 below 70c with only 45% fan speed even when mining, not sure how that is bad...

    Which one? You mean the underside, ie waterblock itself?

    I might get around to it tomorrow when light's up again. Too late for today. Put together both cards now, too, so both have waterblocks now.

    Totally just realized the WoW server sitting at the top. How much did that cost?

    not true, and im not sure where you heard that either, in fact the unidirectional airflow is going to be better for aftermarket gpus than anything else, even a benchtop

    The FT02's airflow design is still one of the more beautiful examples of how to do things right. It's simple and unobstructed for the largest part. Air comes in from bottom, is pushed into case out the top. While many graphics cards will disrupt the flow somewhat due to their lacking of a blower design, the volume of air from below should still be among the stronger ways of pushing out air again...

    Not to mention the fans are bloody good if I recall. You won't find much better for out of the box casefans.

    Airpressure will take care of any obstruction. It's not like air will get caught in a pocket if it's obstructed or anything.

    I think that's the first time I've seen a backplate with absolutely no holes and minimal markings. Looks incredibly sleek.

    Almost too sleek I'd say. I like the DCU II backplate better. Nonetheless, still pretty sweet one drunken.

    I really prefer to keep it sleek. The backplate is a bit more glossier than I expected, but ultimately that won't be too obvious when installed in a rig I think.

    It's not really about the airflow, more about the heatpipes. I used to mine with 2 cards in a switch 810 at 80 & 70° with bequiet case fans, in this case it's 87°/80° with the AP181's on max (1200rpm) and both gpu's at 100% fan speed

    Here a few people claiming the same thing as I am: http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2204972

    They just work the best with blowers, gpu's with aftermarkt is just awful for in a FT02/RV02 & TJ11.
