You bought it already? Nice then
The 6950 wants a minimum psu of 500W. That was made with usually an 125W old AMD processor in mond. Yours is 77W last I checked. Your fans wont take much power so you are fine.
Something like that looks great... One problem. With all the fans you will be putting in. You usually wont have much connectors to connect that. There might be a molex connector that will turn into 3 pin slots but im not sure.
The 140cm fan if I remember is molex.
The front and back should be 3 pin. Thats two. Add in cou cooler andyhats three. Most mobos have 5 in total and that cooler will use up the rest.(if you have 5) Is that bad? Not really. The case has adaquate fans RIGHT next to the not overclocked efficent Ivy Bridge. So using up the rest for GPU cooling wont be bad but then theres the question on how effective and looks. Will that fan setup be productive or counter productive to temps. The cables will also be stretched to different fan connectors and wont look good. Ill look into how this will work when I get home.
Efficiancy is all we care about Bowei, I could care less about looks, but having cabels organized not only looks good but helps the system run smoother I'm sure... wires every where sounds like an accident waiting to happen! I look into the PCI adapters, as well as more fans, and let me know who config you come up with.
I would think it would be better to push out more than your brining in, I would say like a 3:2 ratio, 2 pull in 3 push out. I would think you'd want to place your fans to pull air over your gpu then have another fan to push out that air, same thing with the cpu, pull over the hot air coming out the top than push it out,
My question is placing the other fans, like the one in the front.
Still I know you'll figure something out and when I get the build we can try a few fan configs out to see what works best. I'll look into that Molex connector converter thing...
We have the 2 PCI 3.0, and the one PCI 2.0 (1@x4 still makes no sense] then there's 3 Pci x1 slots which look pretty tiny... so we shall see what can connect to em! sp 4 total full size PCI's and those 3 little ones... and yea it would look a little messy to run cords, might be some way to run them under the GPU
Check this out :D
$15 free shipping, very tempting to buy... and it looks like it'll fit into those PCIx1 slots, which I assume are for fans, as I haven't seen actually hard ware plug into one in a while <.<, some old Win2000> systems might have PCIx1 hard ware xD
