so you keep the case open? I'm thinking of getting "Cooler Master RC-942-KKN1 HAF X ATX Full Tower".
Is it an overkill?
I don't keep my cases open in order not to spoil the "flow-thru"effect from front to rear.
I have these Corsair cases, R500 or whatever they are called, very wide ones.
Four graphics cards in each of them.
In front of the graphics cards, there are two 12cm 110cfm fans on top of each other.
Zip-tied to the graphics cards and power cables.
The bottom fan cools the two bottom cards.
The top fan cools the two top cards.
As the room heats up to the 90s, this configuration barely keeps the cards from throttling down.
Without downclocking the RAM, some cards actually do throttle down.
Since I downclock RAM, I don't have that problem anymore.
Or only very rarely.
I just ordered two 135cfm fans from SuperBiiz, advertised special, to find out whether they cool even better.
As a test subject, I will use the rig that has the least MH/s.
