My System Specs

Smile Video Card Cooling

I look forward to finding out how my crossfire setup will affect the temps in my case. Hopefully an extra fan mounted behind the cards will be enough. Problem is, 2 big cards can pose a big heat issue as the review shows.

My System Specs

Question 5970 Cooling

I suspect that it may be time to save the toonies for a water cooling system. I'm going to need you experts for that. What kind of system? Is a multi rad/pump system for cards, NB, SB, cpu the way to go? Maybe just the cards? If you eliminate the big heat in the system, I'd think the rest should be fine. However if you want to overclock...?
