  1. could that really help that much?
  2. ive filled all my intake holes and with my liquid cooler i cant place a fan on the 2nd top spot due to lake of clearance so atm i have 3 120mm intake 1 120(rad) exhaust and 1 140mm exhuast. so i cant really do much about fans with my current case, i was just thinking about cutting the hole to have more unrestricted airflow, 3 corsair AF120's 1 Corsair SP120 on rad and 1 corsair MLPro 140MM top exhaust
  3. yeah im not concerned with the temps as i know 75-82c isnt damaging in any way im just thinking of ways i can improve my airflow of the case so maybe i can low my fan speed or i can say forget MSI's warranty since i did buy a 2 yr in store warranty at microcenter and open it any way or install a hybdrid kit from evga but im worried having my only 2 exhaust as radiators is ok or not. all i would have to do is put the original cooler back on if i were to return it to micro
  4. im not 100% sure if its the card itself or something with my case fan setup because ive had issues with temps for a while, first i got the 1080 FE from EVGA same thing up to 82c with 100% fan switched it out for the MSI gaming x had to keep fan at 90% to keep it under 80c and again with the 1080 ACX i had previous same thing. now with this 1080 Ti i have to keep fan at 90-100% to keep temps high 70s to 80c
  5. its still pretty new and i have dust filters on all my fan ports also there is a sticker on one of the screws that says warranty void if removed, its only barely passed 30 days old. also to note i had a 1080 ACX that i had to run at 90-100% fan to keep under 80c so it is not just this card
  6. yes at 100 even with all case fans at 100 too
  7. the temps drop about 3-5c with side panel off. gpu gets about 81-82c max fan after long period about 77-78c without side panel not overclocked either
  8. the fans i bought are quality at least there priced that way at 20-30$ a fan and i know the Corsair ML series at least are the same as noctuas just a bit noisier
  9. So, i am considering cutting out an opening in the front to allow better airflow for my front intake fans i am just looking for any tips of how to do this what materials to use etc. i do want some protection against dust. i am also wondering how much it could help with temps etc. my temps are fine im just looking to be able to lower my fan speed to combat noise a bit. ive attached pics of my case below for reference
  10. Hello, i am just wondering if its safe to let windows 10 update all my drivers besides my video card driver, last i heard it was still better to do it yourself
  11. i know radiator in front would have lower temps but im unsure i can even fit it in front. i mean i suppose i could get custom sleeved cables to help get them away from my bottom fan but not sure how much that would help for the price. GPU 71c-75c avg 79c highest low demanding game 76-79c avg 85c max high demanding game or benchmarking after 70c 80% fan after 80c 100% CPU 65c avg 74c highest low demanding 68-78c high demanding/benchmarking 100% fan after 60c both are stock and not overclocked with my cpu running at 1.24 vcore
  12. has 3 intake one in bottem one in the front and one behind HDD cage im using the 3 corsair AF 120's as intake the corsair SP120 as exhaust on rad and the corsair ML Pro 140 as top exhaust
  13. the top fan is exhaust. and i have tried to move those cable out of the way of that bottom fan with how stiff those cables are they dont want to move much i have them pulled out as far as i can get them too. also there is very little space behind the case for cable management i have to force the back panel on and even then it bulges slightly.
  14. also for reference i had a EVGA 1080 ACX that i had to keep at 90% fan just to keep under 75c
