Not bad at all considering the noise the games makes distract you from the fan noise...awesome. Stick a scythe gentle typhoon 1850rpm in front to feed your cards and you should be golden.
They quiet and push a lot of air. but it sounds like you don't even have a problem really...
I also have a fear of watercooling. that's mainly why i got the 3 fan card. What's the noise levels like with 2 7970's? I assume you let the cards use dynamic oc'ing. That's one thing i love about these new cards from both camps.
i know you weren't saying yours are better, i didn't get that impression at all. I know you better than that...lol. You're not a braggart. I offered my akcnowledment that the 7970's are a bit better than the 680's.
i was just just curious as to what Tom's was saying and checked it out. And I have asked for a section where we can talk about computers solely, as that is how most of us access this site.
It would be great, as people with experience in certain areas can help others that are having problems.
