Ok, here is my predicament -

The 680i has a hot chipset and noisy fans, that means that I will slapping the NB and SB with a Thermalright HR-05 SLI. The problem here is that i'm not sure of the effect the NB cooling will mean in terms of the size of CPU cooler I can have...

Any idea's?

Perhaps the Thermalright Ultra-120 (extreme?)? Its the one i'd like, not sure if its one I can actually have though...

Case is an Antec P-182 if that helps at all.

i dont know how it will fit but thats a nice cooler, have you thought about water cooling?

Strongly recommend something like that for the SB, high pins just caused too many problems.

Those things are nice; but for a 680i they just don't cut it. :(

I went for the Ultra 120 eXtreme and two HR-05 SLI's.

Having the HR-05 on my SB prevents me from actually doing SLI thanks to the rediculous size of GPU'd these days, but my comp is now silent and very cool (not to mention heavy).

I did consider water cooling but unless you're spending over £150 on it, you're better off with heatsinks and fans. Its something to look at in the future in case the only way of actually getting a better GPU is to SLI it. *Cough*9800's....*cough*
