    I recommend you use the correct connectors directly from the PSU, my Corsair HX-850 was very specific in the instructions stating that you should use either both hard wired cables, or both modular cables ( as power fluctuations can vary etc between different types of cables, even the same type connected by different means ). I doubt they would put it there for no reason. The PCI-E connectors to join them together to make 6 or 8 pin etc should only be used as a last resoirt, best to play is safe with your shiny new GPU.

    P.S you can edit posts, down the bottom right of the post window it will say edit, if you are not signed in it won't say edit though, but it will allow you to click "post reply" though and then prompt for sign in. AKA sign in to the forums at the main page ( as it can sign you out when you close the window ) and you can edit posts.

    I have my 5 fans on my case setup as:

    front 2 fans intake, side fan intake, top fan exhaust, back fan exhaust. It was recommended to me, I can't say whether it's better, but my case is nice and cool.

    32 degrees idle cpu, 58 max, GTX280 never goes above 65 degrees, stock fan, default speed ( 40% )

    Just use the 6+2 PCI cables. There should be 4. Just plug the card into you PCI-E slot and the plug in two of the 6+2 pin connectors. One you will just leave the +2 pin connector hanging there.

    You might go to the forums over at EVGa and look in their 400 series forum for that answer. I would suggest though that you download 3dVantage and run that benchmark and compare it to the 3dVantage scores posted in a thread over there.

    And register your card there if you have not.

    You should be good there also. That is a lot of airflow.

    change the side fan to intake
    more fans for intake and less for exhaust(positive air pressure) will prevent dust buildup inside the case

    I'm using my haf 932 side fans as intake, front intake, bottom intake, roof exhaust, back exhaust, think it's optimal airflow this way. Also use the connectors that go straight from the PSU. Grats on your new card, felt the same way when I bought my GeForce 7800GTX when I was your age (in terms of excitment :)).

    Nerf your gtx 280 temps dchalf, mine can get as hot as 86-87 degrees C in gpu intensive games, then again it's been a while since I last dusted it off, and it's also summer but still.

    No point in making them much lower, 65c is at load, well and truly safe, forcing higher fan speed would be a waste of power. I would love to get a full tower just because I need to chase that consumer dream with alweays needing to 1-up myself, but my current one works so good there is no point.

    EDIT:

    I've been using GPUz to monitor temps, maybe it isn't accurate. When it used to get up into the 80's I would get graphical corruption, it hasn't happened in a long time though so maybe GPUz is right.

    I'm using Real Temp 3.40 to monitor temperatures, will have to dust out my case when exams are over and see if it improves, actually I'm sure it will since it's been like 2 months since I last cleaned it up. :p

    Q1. Fliping the side fan will make it into a intake from exhaust?????

    Q2.for maximum cooling my 480 and best airflow..........sud i use front+side+base as intake and top+rear for exhaust??

    Q3.connect the gpu directly with the 6+2pin and 6pin from psu??? Using the molex wud make any difference??? Or wud simply make a mess??

    Q4. Important!!!! Sud i connect the fans with the mobo??? Or the psu??? Connecting 2pins of fan with 3pins on mobo....is it a issue???.......i ve the msi 890fx gd70...........

    Q1 yes, also you can allways check with a piece of paper what direction the fan is blowin at

    Q2 that's what I am using and it works great

    Q3 connect it directly to psu

    Q4 I fill out all mobo slots first, and the remaining fans go straight to psu

    I second all points.

    @DiaboliX

    Don't know about your case but since I've had mine...I never have to clear the inside, air filters are a godsend.
