    Had a few days off and decided to cleanup my system, here are the results, and hello from me :)
    I put the Scythe fan controller backwards in the case so i dont accidentaly touch the knobs since the CPU cooler fans are pluged in it (Gigabyte is awful with fan controllers i wish Abit still did mobos).

    Just installed that fan. Found it on a 7 year old modded motherboard. Works fine, shaved 20-25°C off IOH temperatures, noise isn't noticeable.

    LuLz. No, both are review samples. B75 is more "Business-Class", but Z77X-UD5H has WiFi and mSATA.

    B75 is mATX, will make for a smaller box on my desk.


    Z77X-UD5H is an OC master, from what I've seen so far, but no IVB yet to confirm the same still holds true.


    So I'll have to test and choose!

    Dude you gotta get rid of those noctua fans.. otherwise would be flawless.

    I received the backplates for my 680s yesterday from EVGA:

    Here's the backplate installed:

    [​IMG]

    Along with the hi-flow bracket, this doesn't look like a stock 680 anymore :p

    [​IMG]

    Both cards installed:

    From a different angle:

    I also finally used the sticker that came with my RIVE board :D

    Those backplates are slick! How much did they affect temps?

    To be honest with you, I haven't checked yet as I just finished installing them last night, and it took me longer than I expected to do so as my Torx 6 screwdriver broke, I had to improvise.

    The thermal tape only contacts the tiny resistors in the back of the GPU, so I'm not expecting a big gain, I'll report back to you as soon as I test them :)

    Thanks for your comments :D

    Why have not you taken directly two SC+ ? Overclocked out of the box and equipped with backplates :toast:

    They are faster than reference

    I'll go quad sli in the near future (as soon as evga decides to improve the pace of their step up queue :p), and maybe then I might finally upgrade to a WC setup, I'm liking the Koolance water block better though :)

    I know, I ordered my 680s on day one and the SC+ wasn't "available" until a few weeks after that, in the meantime I've enjoyed my stock 680s and bought the backplates for looks mostly :D

    watch the fan on that HIS card sneeky as zunshan fans are P'sOS you can't relube them if they start getting noisy because you can't take the fan apart without breaking them

    Its going water very soon, plus I don't run it all the time. It's more a card for cooler testing anyways, so I guess in a year when I see this stock cooler again I may have to worry about it;)

    cool sneeky I wish I could afford to go water on my setup but living in NZ makes it a very expensive proposition

    I think running F@H on mine is what screwed them consistently being run at 70% fan speed as the auto fan speed selection would let the GPU's climb to 70c and still only be at 40%... still though less than a year for either of them to go poo is a bit stink if you ask me and HIS wont send me two new fans they want me to send the cards back to them at my expense I think not at $45+ to courier them so I just did the next best thing "ghetto modded them"
