im pretty sure those tabs are removable, leaving only the mesh cover...

Maybe changing your center intake fan will lower your temps

How about just putting a single 2x120 rad up top.

That fan isnt even on yet, once i plug it in today temps will drop, along with adding on the backplate tomorrow.

Still wouldint mind a wc setup, dual rads aint a big deal and will let me keep the tabs in place.

Sure i can leave the mesh cover but then i would need to mod the top with drilling.....i really dont wanna cut up a $330 case.

Now that is a nice looking block. You said you have 300 bucks after the block? You only want to cool the GPU?

300 bucks is alot if the only thing you want to cool is the GPU. Man you could search the net and find ALOT of goodies for alot less than that.

Small and would work and keep you way under $300.
I personally would not like premade stuff. I like to build my own, but it is an easy bolt on.

I would stay away from "kits"

I am also pretty sure Rican will not get an infraction for his sig.

I think rican gets more space because he is on the folding team.

So you link him to a cpu water cooling kit, that has a lovely aluminum radiator and an anemic pump, great...

P.S. Your sig might be alittle on the big side. The other mods slapped me with -5 points for a sig alot smaller than yours.
well for one rican is a mod...he knows the size restrictions, and also the folding stuff does not count into the size of the sig.

Yeah water cooling for her would be a good idea rican. I think it would be much easier (probably cheaper also) to mount the rad externally and get a 2x120 rad instead of 2x1x120 rads.
