    Hmmz, they went with smaller fans.

    The new 100 MM Fans are really quiet according to reviews. Shame they went with 3 screamers for this.

    Looks like two 100mm and maybe a 70-80mm in the middle.

    Love it. Perhaps i'll go into debt for this, tbh i tried without success for a 780 classified the other mornin' yup. :(
    *Seems one product at a time with my credit company (the one tied to a big hardware company in uk) anyways i'm clear in September ..haha (still paying off the classy :p )
    Hope it's priced below £600, my hardware credit limit lol

    Well ye, you're right 2x 100 MM, 1x 70MM.

    Tho i really doubt that 70 MM Fan was really needed.

    The middle looks like 80mm, others 100mm.


    My TF3 has 80mm fans and its "silent" up to 52%, if they say its independent im guessing they capped the smaller one a lower speed mode (ie 30% as min instead of 40%).


    In my case normal mode 50% = 50C, at silent mode 50% = ~63C.

    Don't you think the 70-80mm fan will produce a little more noise though?

    Would have thought the two 100mm fans would have been sufficient unless this is more of a way to make it look sexier. Which indeed it does!


    edit*

    I'm inclined to agree on the lower profile setting for the smaller fan. I would think the fan will run at a lower percentage than it's adjacent buddies.

    Hmm.. Rumored price is 750 USD. Clocks are below that of EVGA Classified and Zotac AMP, and probably other brands too. But it sure is feature packed. Not for the average enthusiast I guess.

    After having another look at that heatsink from underneat, there is quite a design flaw which prevents air from blow against the PCB to cool VRMs and stuff.

    Look, it's almost completely blocked by heatpipes...
