My System Specs

Default

As was mentioned above, most modern gaming cases these days have provisions for many locations of fans and rads. I forsee an H100i on the top panel of a case, one ARESII blowing out the back panel, and one ARESII blowing up from the bottom. Or some variation of this.

And, the little 80mm fan wouldn't have to blow that fast. It's just to cool the VRM's and Heatsinks, and TBH I don't think those require that much cooling. That little fan is just to get some semblance of air movement over those components.

Although, Why ASUS wouldn't try to go with a full cover water block hooked up to the AIO system, and try to go for a single slot card, is beyond me. That would be a much more attractive solution, especially for the money you'll likely pay for this beast.
