Cooling & Space Question Tags: Homebuilt Cooling Graphics Cards Antec Systems Product Last response: August 23, 2008 12:02 AM in Systems Share thurst0n August 22, 2008 2:34:35 AM I have an Antec 900 QX6850 OCZ Reaper HPC 2x2GB I am wondering about cooling and clearance for cpu coolers and video cards. I plan to overclock this processor and really see how far it can go. I'm assuming it will get very hot. I am also looking at getting: 4870 XOC Black Edition ASUS Rampage Formula x48 Motherboard I know the 4870 already runs hot. (have heard about fan mod) What CPU cooler will run somewhat quietly and provide high cooling while fitting in case? Will 4870 even FIT in antec 900? Will corsair 750TX have enough headroom to eventually CF 2 of the video cards? Does it have the right connections? Thanks.

I'm aware of the height of the ram sinks. Quote:Pros: The Xigmatek 120 mm Rifle fits on it well. Comes with a lot of nice wires and LCD display. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductReview.aspx?Item=1...

The GTX 200's use the 2x8-pin PCI-E plug, FWIW. thurst0n August 23, 2008 12:02:31 AM What about on other x48 models or the P5Q-E or P5Q-Deluxe? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
