Yes you could. I run 280(2 140mm fans). You can also run 3 120mm (360) fans if you want.

Nah no issues with fallout. I run it on ultra at 1080p and medium at 4k with no issues.

Never played BF4, I have BF3 and Hardline. But it's always been in crossfire. Hardline had so problems at first but got better.

I'd say save money and get the new 480x

new egg and amazon for the aerocool fans. The other ones I got from some German website. cannot remember but i don't run them any more ( not enough air flow)

They could very well be right. They would throttle on some games in the nzxt case with the low air flow. They run fine now in my bigger case. but the 380's should run cooler

On the old build with the NZXT case yes. I had to white led strips. now its just the blue fans.

absolute no issues. I actually switched my motherboard to the extreme6 and gained almost no boost from running x16-x16. so yes you'll be fine.

I think it would do just fine. Advanced video editing could be very taxing depending on how in depth you get... but i don't know much about that.

Thank You i'm happy you like my build, I did take my time choosing parts.

The Noctua NF-A14 have almost twice the RPMs and static pressure of the stock NZXT fans while being just a quiet at the same RPMs (1200 vs 2000 RPMs, tho, much louder at 2000). I purchased them for the extra over head (RPMs and thus static pressure) compared to the NZXT fans. And yes THANK GOD they are black (Noctua took a hint) because i'd rather take a hit in performance rather then have brown fans.

ah nah! PCPP estimated about 823W. My power supply fan has never, not once, turned on (truely, the thing is completely dust free) so I think i'm under that. Haven't notice any increase in the bill.

Do you think you can fit another one of those R9 290 vapor-X cards on to your motherboard? if so i might switch my MB to that one.

BTW nice build +1.

yea it always worried me too. when those nightmares from Ubisoft (AC unity which is still bad and Far Cry 4 which is a lot better) came out they would get really hot and the game would crash which led me to think they the card were the issue. After some patches, Far Cry runs about 5-10c cooler now but still crashes every so often. Some other games still push them into the red but no crashes. i'm comfortable with it now as they cool down almost immediately after i quit a game. I just think that's how it's supposed to be.

Get PWM fans for your radiator.

I get 85c for the top card in Assassian's Creed Unity on Ultra (Game runs like trash, I get like 80c with just a single card running on Far Cry 4) This case isn't the best with air flow either. According to AMD, 95c is safe for these cards and the stock ones tend to run that so I guess i'm alright with 85c.

I don't have a custom fan profile for the GPUs.

Good looking build, BTW.

The R9 290s and 290x(s) do not use a Crossfire bridge. They communicate through the Pci-e slots. I believe all new AMD cards will be moving away from a bridge.

I have to change my review on the Aerocool fans. I did rma another one after I received the 2nd one and they made sure I got one with little to no vertical play. It and the Cougar fan both clicked at certain rpms. So I started looking into the case and found that the metal on top of the case is too thin and after applying sound damping foam to the top of the case the clicking went in both fans. I only stuck with the Alpenföhn fans because I demand PWM function and they are really good fans. sorry about giving you bad information.

Old posts: The 140mm clicks really badly, like really really badly. I got another one on the way in hope that I received a bad fan. Some fan click when mounted horizontally, I hope this is not one of them and I just received a bad fan. However it does look really good and it does move a ton of air even at 7V which is what i have it at.

I got the new 140mm in. It also clicks. Not as badly or as loudly as the other one but it does. it did not seem to at first, I had to put my ear really close to hear it, but after a hour of running it got audible from a distance. I plugged it out and the system is really quiet with out it. It sucks cause its a really nice fan but it far from "dead silent" at least when mounted horizontally.

old post: The 140mm clicks really badly I got another one on the way in hope that I received a bad fan. The 120 works really well. Both move a bunch of air and look really great. I can't tell you how quite they are currently because of the 140mm but I will update it later when I get the new one. I agree that Intel would run faster. I had the motherboard and CPU in a earlier build and I'm very pleased with them. Plus I see too many big Intel builds, It wanted to be a bit different.

The x61 does a amazing job and prime95 has never pushed the fx-9370 to anywhere near hot as i thought it would get. The fans have never gone over 60% in their PWM setting. idle at 27c and max i've hit was like 53c with prime95. never been over like 35-40 with normal usage. I put 35c up top under load because thats around what I get with my regular usage.

hope that helped, depending on your CPU, you'd probably be fine with something less expensive or even a air cooler.

what CPU and case will you be running?

I only run them because the s340 doesn't have a lot of fans for truly great air flow so I felt the extra static pressure would help push air through radiator and into the case to help with heat from the crossfire setup while maintaining a lower speed. The x61 does a amazing job and prime95 has never pushed the fx-9370 to anywhere near hot as i thought it would get (would have gotten a 9590 if I knew it would be this good).

NZXT - 1000 RPM, 50 CFM, 0.9 mm-H2O Noctua - 2000rpm, 107ish CFM, 4.18 mm H2O

Had to attempt to convert to CFM for the Noctuas. They get the job done, move a ton of air. not a big difference between the two until you get above the RPM limits of the Nzxt fans but at that point the Noctuas are louder.

yup and that's about what I paid for them from Corsair. If you have a power supply cover just get extensions, if not you're probably buy them from the power supply manufacture or doing it yourself. sadly, unless your sleeving them yourself, its gonna cost around $100. I had extensions and it cost like $110 for all of them. you can reduce costs by buying extensions for just the visible cables. unlike me, like a idiot, I bought extensions for all of them when I need like 3 for my last PC.

Top card sits at about 76c and the bottom between 68-72c on the challenging games. Waiting for Far Cry 4's Crossfire profile for a real test.

Works just as you'd expect it too. wireless is wireless, a direct connection is far better. When one isn't available tho, the Adapter works just fine.

The system is estimated to max out at 863 watts. I want at least 100 watts of overhead, and a Modular set up.

There are very few powers supplies that are around 950 watts, even fewer that are completely Modular.... so move up another 50 watts and BOOM, 1000 watts.
