Alsisgevat,
Nice sli set up! If those are basically identical cards then if you see a higher temp in the #1 card you might swap them as the triple fan could do a better job of pulling air across the narrow opening? Can't wait to see the water cooling and are you wc'g the gpu's as well?

They are exactly the same reference desigh and performance cards, the newer one just has a fancy cooler, and I tried switching the 2, but it's a super tight fit, because the new one is way thicker then the old one, but on idle alone it's 20 degrees C lower then the old one. And I am only gonna WC the vga's, when I strip them and replace the stock/3 fan air coolers for the water block you won't see any difference between the 2, same blocks ect. I will maybe cool the cpu at a later stage, for now I am happy with the performance of the H80 I have on the cpu. I will swap them after this, so I can check the difference in temps.

Thanx mate.

I swapped them out, now the new one is the main card, temps on it rose 5 degrees! Temps on other card dropped 14! So the temps both in the 40's on idle, and only differ by about 4 degrees.And thats kinda cool,since the other way around the first card idle's on 54 and now idles on 41 and the second one idled on 34 now idles on 39, so not to bad all in all.

edit: I had to do it 1 and 4, instead of slots 1 and 3. So now it uses the 200chip and apparently has a slight delay, but it now runs on x16 x16, instead of the previous x8 x8, and it's looks good.

That's fantastic news about the cooling advantage of the new card over the original and it makes sense to have it in the #1 slot but all will be mute when the water cooling factors in !

Yeah, it kinda sucks on the one hand, because this cooler has white fans that would look great with the white tubing and so on. But I saw some tests on WC, and the temps idle on 19degrees and dont go highr then 40 ever. So thats gonna be a major difference. Your idea of swapping them has led to nither card reaching above 65 on full, so thanx again, it worked like a charm!

I'm not sure what to call this. Some new, some from the rig before and a little from the rig before that. Excuse the crappy camera and the mess. I do tend to get messy when I build. I've never learned how to make wiring look nice, but it does look better in person.

here is where I was bench testing and BTW, it isn't an Asrock board. System specs are current.
