Gelid GC Extreme is the best I've found so far, but I believe some of the Thermal Grizzly stuff is pretty good now.

Other than that, AS5 is a pretty solid choice, albeit a bit runny.

The front can support up to a 280mm rad and the bottom can support up to a 360mm. If you mount the GPU rads on their sides (so the pipes are coming out of the side rather than the bottom or top),...

Addition of non-textured space bar

I've had the use of a Strafe a few times and every time I come to the conclusion that the space bar is horrible for typing. Don't get me wrong, it's great for gaming, but I like to slightly move my...

IIRC the only difference is the removal of the "crossed swords" Corsair Gaming logo (older model) to just the updated sails (newer model).

Other than that, everything seems the same (they both use...

You're just going to be making them work harder, you already have the 2 GPU rads pushing hot air in, plus the CPU rad pushing hot air in. That's going to increase the ambient temperature inside the...

The only issue I can see is pipe clearance. Coming out of the top of the card will probably be the best bet for this, but it depends what cooler you're going to fit with different thickness pipes and...

1) I would have the top mounts as exhaust as well, otherwise you'll be working against the flow of natural hot air by trying to keep it inside the case.

2) Without knowing the case I can't really...

It's a very niche market for a large air cooler with most enthusiasts and even OEM builders plumping for AIO units. I believe Corsair used to make the A70, which is a dual fan tower, about half the...

Yup exactly that, it's to align the motherboard (it should be the middle standoff) and will fit all motherboard sizes so doesn't need to be removed.

I never knew it wasn't threaded though :p

The only issue I can possibly imagine is that the OP found clearance issues with the rad pipes and the optical tray.

Although a H80 was mentioned, which is incredibly thick compared to the H100i...

If you're trying to save cash, either look on the used market or go for the R9 390. Very similar performance and slightly cheaper than the GTX 970. I believe Gigabyte offer a WindForce x2 model also,...

Oh so you're willing to look at NVIDIA also? I thought you meant just the R9 380 range (because the GTX 970 is like another £100).
