first thing is silence
these fan are really quiet
i run all these at 12v

for performance........ i dont make any side by side comparison but i have a good temp
i need to do some testing, now they are in pull configuration as intake
i will reverse all and check the temp again
if i remember, they have only 1.3 for static pressure, i dont know if its enough for XSPC EX360 or i need more SP

they are huge, 55mm, you need a large case, 55mm + RX360, not all case can take this setup

bye the way, i have a question

i just received my third HD7970 and im not sure if i will have a good flow

now i have 3.8 LpM (1.0 Gpm), if i had the third gpu the flow will be more restrictive and go below 1 gpm
with 2 card, im in serial setup, if with the third, i change to parallel, do you think i will keep my 1 gpm??

remember, i have 2 D5 Vario set to speed 5

Hey, you're building my computer. (I wish). Minus the flashy lights that's pretty much the box I'd like to have. Nice build.

... any chance i can get you to email me your build spreadsheet?

remember, i have 2 D5 Vario set to speed 5
we have similiar setups with the 7970's

I would think the 2 D5's should have great flow and the 3rd 7970 shouldnt change your temps much

I have 8 triebworks on 2 rx480 rads on push in my th10 magnum and I thought they made more noise than the gentle typhoons

RIG UPDATE!

i do some change to my setup

what i do
add a third HD7970
change G.Skill Ram by Corsair Dominator GT ram
connected GPU in parallele
redo my pump /reservoir setup
power supply cable sleeving
changed fan for Corsair SP120
and other small little thing

still need to do
waiting and installing missing fan
cable management
make a Raid 0 with bootable drive
and other little thing

what i have with this update

more stability with new ram

better temps
CPU at stock setting (fan at 70% rpm)
Idle: 27, Full: 53
GPU
Idle:35, Full: 45

better flow rate and yes with a third GPU
before 0.95 GPM
now : 1.3 GPM
im very suprise by the results and the gain

new ram installed
Corsair Dominator GT 2133 CL9






new gift at my door, new XFX HD7970 Core Black OC edition water block installed on third HD7970




i will change all fan in my rig
i dont like the temp, im sure, im able to have better temp with 3 x 360 rad
i will install all Corsair SP120 High performance edition and all rad in push and pull
now with 3.2 of static pressur for each fan, they will do the job





cable sleeving, still need cable management, i waiting for missing fan then i will do my cable management
