I agree, nice build. Like all the parts you have. Would like to see some better cable management, but that's aesthetic. What you have now definitely isn't effecting cooling or anything.

Thanks everyone. I will need to upgrade the CPU/MB to the latest generation at some point in the next year so I'll probably buy some sleeved cables for the PSU and clean it up. As HiTech mentioned above, it hasn't been a huge priority as it may not be the most aesthetic but it's still functional.

As for the drive the Samsung Pro is under the cd drive.

One thing I noticed though that probably isn't a big deal but my top GPU is hitting 79-80c max under the load and the bottom one gets 66c.

My previous SLI 670's the top card would hit 69 and the bottom 63. I try to keep the temps below 70c. I know these cards can run hotter but is the top card running a little warm? I thought about swapping the cards position just to see if the other card does the same thing to make sure the card isn't running hotter than it should.

My fan setup:

Front - 2 fans intake
Side - 2 fans intake blowing directly on the GPUs
Top - 2 fans blowing out
Then the 2 fans on the cooler blowing out the back, and 1 fan on the HD cage blowing in between the two cards.

Very normal temperatures for a GPU, quite nice actually for a SLI config. No worries.
