By the looks of it, I might have to use watercooling again if things don't change with future generations. We'll see. I'd like to avoid that though...
My next case will be a TJ11. It uses a similar layout as the Ravens but also higher quality materials. I guess I'll get it for SNB-E. Not in the mood for a case swap

About the 3GB. I don't want to get into this again. But fact is that choosing a 3GB 580 over a 1.5GB 580 makes no sense unless you're using any kind of Surround setup. And for that SLI is needed. So in my opinion, Palit ****ed up with their cooling choice.
I mentioned the H70 because you said you were concerned about the Palits heating the air you use to cool the Palit's.

I like the H50 and H70 because they allow a decent OC, are cheap, and don't have the maintenance of traditional water cooling.
