That's a lot of GPU power you have now. I would be mindful of the heat in both cards especially the top card and if needed add a case fan to blow directly over the intakes of the cards.

linnemeyerhere, surprisingly the cards arent getting that hot, I ran Dead Island maxed out for two hours and the top GPU just barely hit 77-78 degrees. I guess the HAF X was worth the money. The best thing about the HAF X is that it comes with a 200MM GPU fan.

jeepmann4x4, besides a hiccup at startup( for some reason the nvidia control panel would not open for anything, so I had to uninstall and reinstall the 280.xx drivers and the whole suite), but when I restarted my computer after the reinstallation everything went smoothly.

Inav83,
That's fantastic and it's also testament to the cooler running ddr5 chips.

Sounds great, glad its running good and smooth for you....

In the HAFX you can also attach the GPU air duct and put a 120mm fan in there, I think CM recommends a 150cfm for SLI.

Thinking of going to SSD
I'm really thinking of making the jump to SSD. I have my eyes on the OCZ Agility 2 60GB. (I have the current drive and additional 160GB drive to backup all my files, etc.) Space on the other drives is NOT an issue. I'm using 42GB of 260 right now on my WD drive. I'd put the OCZ as my...

Seriously thinking about getting an SSD
I'm currently considering the benefits of getting an SSD. There are certain circumstances keeping me from getting one at the moment, but as soon as I can buy one without going broke, I plan to buy a 30-32GB one for the OS and use my current HDD for file storage. If you had to choose between the two...

Thinking about a new SSD
Im thinking of getting around a 250GB SSD. Do they last any longer or shorter than HDDs? Will they make my computer faster? The big question: Is it worth it, or should I go with a 500 GB 7200 RPM HDD?

thinking about SSD
Hello again, Looking to move my primary W7 machine to SSD in March. Plan on a small one, probably 32gigs for W7, CS4 Design Premium, etc. etc. Is this too small, do I have to go 64gigs? Also, most of the reviews out there, at least on New Egg are average except for the Intel ones. Any...

Windows Seven, should be renamed Windows. Just simply Windows. No suffix. No XP, no Vista, no codenames, no numbers. Just simply Windows. This OS is by far the best I have used. Sure it has some bugs here and there, but that's what happens with Betas. It could be: Windows Basic Windows...
