    Thanks !

    Didn't check the power-usage yet, but with 2x 8-Pin-Power-Connectors + the PCIe-Slot 1 GPU could use up to 375W.

    I have a 900W-PSU, which should be just enough, if I OC further.

    I did some basic Benchmarks:

    On the Unigine Heaven Benchmark, the FPS kinda fluctuates, is it normal?

    When running the Benchmark or if you compare different runs with each other ?

    The fps is always changing, when you run the Benchmark, that is why you get a max / min / average fps-score.

    Added another fan, now it's "push. push, pull"...


    I added another fan, now it's "push. push, pull"... Temps dropped a few degrees... 30 degrees C at rest and 50 degrees C at 100% CPU utilization... I'll add fans until I determine the point of diminishing returns...

    @azasadny

    Great idea ! I never tried this before.

    PS:

    If you ever need a new case for yourself, then maybe have a look into the Thermaltake Level 10 GT LCS, as the dust-filters do an excellent job and are easy to clean. That's the first case which had after 9 month still not one dust-corn inside. My GPU looked like straight out of the box when I bought it.

    What is the point of continuing to add the fans? Are you going to attempt to overclock the box further? A few degrees difference in CPU temps really isn't going to increase the useful life of the CPU when you are running that cool anyway.

    I just about don't use cases with dust filters anymore. My main box at home runs in an Antec P180 case and it's clean after nearly 4 years. Never had to dust it out once. I've got 2 other Antec Sonata II's at home which I've never dusted out either that are 4-7 years old now.

    At work, I use Antec 300 cases. They have front dust shields. And I cover the side fan intake on the case since I don't run a fan there to prevent dust from going inside. These cases stay nice and clean too.

    You just may have inspired me again there, Art! I think I'm going to take another look at the airflow of my pc with this new information.

    As a builder we have to look at the sources of dust in a building. Art mentioned a few like carpet and pet dander. There's also throw rugs, clothes, leaking clothes dryer vents, dried dirt, our human dander, and much more.

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dust

    Not a healthy thing for man or machine. Dust is not a healthy thing at all breathing in for a lifetime. If a forced air heating system, an ionization filtration system is a good investment. If hydronic heating system, there's stand alone versions.

    Ironically standard vacuum cleaners are a big culprit in throwing dust into the air. Turn your vacuum on and shine a bright light or flashlight at it. You'll see what I mean. A whole house vacuum system that exhausts to the exterior or a water filter vacuum is the answer.
