I Love my build, it gets around 120 FPS on ultra with BF4 and around 100 for FC3 plus im using dual monitors. the issue ... i think.... might be my case. I have the INwin GT1 and I bought it cause I thought i looked cool and i'm already sick of it haha.

I wants something with the ability to hide some cables. Right now my cooling system is the Noctua, and its huge and awesome because its so damn quiet. Thats what I really want and it does a pretty darn good job right now.

MY graphics card gets really really hot, but the thing puts in work.

I guess what i'm asking here is if i changed my case to a corsair 760T or Carbide Series® Air 540 High Airflow ATX Cube Case would it keep my computer cooler, or would you guys suggest more fans? because i only have the two stock ones.. one in front as an intake and one on top a exhaust., or would you guys suggest getting a new cooling system?

  1. I would add a few 120mm fans and see what changes. I would suspect temps would drop by a few degrees or more. Two fans (one intake and one exhaust) isn't all that much airflow with a "large" GPU. Set it up with two intake on the front, one intake on the side, and exhaust on the back and top.

    The CM 4-pack would work fine => http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103194&cm_re=4_pack_120mm-_-35-103-194-_-Product
