    Got my other Titan back after blowing it up, the HUE looks a lot more blue in these pics than it actually is for some reason. Forgot to turn my under desk LEDs on for the second pic too - helps me see my keyboard!

    Edit - pics too big.

    RAM, H110 and the case is "a lot of Corsair"?

    I doubt he really needs luck to have his case and RAM not "die", AIO maybe but I wouldn't be overly worried.

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

    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

  20. #12980
    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.
