Description

Rebuild of our bedroom media/gaming PC, we sold off our sapphire R9 290 tri-x PC heater lol and changed it for a GTX 1060, we also added in the Swiftech cooler (in a pull config) and changed the PSU as my son needed a better one in his PC. The yellow fans are placeholders for red or RGB ones later as I already had these on my shelf because I got them for $6 each on clearance. We went with the 1060 as the TV in the bedroom is 1080p only and MSI's design fit in perfectly.

Yes an over kill PSU as I will only buy high end units and we upgrade our machines 7 of them multiple times a year.

Added red dye to the Swiftech.

I'm too tired to write a good description lol I'll edit it later

Anything listed for $0 we already had.

Update, my sons PSU started buzzing loudly, an old silver stone 600W so I have replaced his with the 750W EVGA G2 PSU from this machine. The crazy high 1300W EVGA G2 PSU now in it is from my test bench and the only spare unit I had left other then the 1600W G2 I have sitting in its box so I'm not going to put that in this system lol it's gone to the test bench, so yes stupid over the top PSU but the only spare I had without buying another unit and spending $$$$ I don't have atm

Right on. Since they are on both sides, it helps split the red. I like looking at it.

do the 2 GPU fans spin together at 60c? or only 1

They generaly do however I believe that MSI introduced independent fan control on the Twinfrozer models some time ago so it's possible it only requires cooling on that half of the card.

Do you have a fan blowing directly on it?

Do both fans spin on startup?

Can you manually get them both to spin in software does the fan that's not spinning ever spin at all?
