Never been a problem according to the temperature readings. Noise is quite low as well.

How are the temperatures?

Thanks for the comment! Yeah I did go to Akihabara a couple times. I live just a few stops from there so it's really convenient. It's funny, you can actually find more parts and better deals in brick-and-mortar stores in Akiba than you can online in Japan. I bought a couple of my fans there.

Thanks for the detailed reply. The noise even happens when FPS is low (50-60 on Witcher 3). But it has gotten MUCH quieter now. So I'm going to keep the card. Thanks again!

Thanks for the advice. I would like to try buying a new PSU but I probably won't be able to for at least a few months. That said, just setting up Valley before work or leaving it on the Witcher 3 all day for a few days seems to have helped the card "break in"; the sound is not nearly as loud and annoying as it was. With the case closed and the sound on I can't really hear it any more.

Thanks for the comprehensive review of the Phanteks case. Very useful.

Two case fan headers is definitely a bonus. I think one way around the problem is using the same fans in the front and the rear. I think most cases allow that. For me, I'm planning on slapping a GTX 980ti Hybrid into my build, which will control the rear fan/radiator combo. That means the front fan can get the motherboard header all to itself.

Thanks for the reply. Again, really sexy build! Thanks for sharing. I just discovered this site a few days ago and I've already learned so much and drooled over so many builds haha :)

Looks great! Did you have any trouble between the CPU cooler and the USB 3 header?

Really nice job!

BTW did you connect the USB 3 header? I've read some people have difficulty with the CPU cooler getting in the way on that motherboard.

I'm gonna make a rig pretty similar to this, I think. Except it's not gonna look nearly as badass :)
