      Well this should have some interestig replies...liquid cooling?

      The $1,499 Radeon R9 295X2 is AMD's answer to the age-old question: What do you get when you take two of the fastest GPUs on the planet, slap them on the same printed circuit board (PCB), bolt on a liquid-cooled heatsink with dual fans? The strongest GPU AMD has ever sold in this category and our Editors' Choice award for high-end, multicore graphics cards.

      ..and from the other corner

      EVGA GTX Titan Black

      The EVGA GTX Titan Black high-end graphics card ($1,019) is currently the highest-performing single GPU you can buy, particularly for certain scientific and high-performance computing (HPC) applications, and the price tag puts it out of contention for most gamers. There are a handful of people who will benefit from Nvidia's powerhouse, but the majority of high-end PC gamers will want to stick with the Editors' Choice Nvidia GeForce GTX 780$719.00 at Amazon.

          You know what gets me? How they are able to take all the heat from 2 GPUs, and control it very well with a 120mm radiator.

              Power pigs like these cards are the reason I invested heavily in fans. 140mm performance fans can move lots of air, a lot better than smaller ones.

               

              My 300R can use older 120mm fans but I bought new fans with the chassis as I wanted to take advantage of the front grill design. I also installed fans on top to remove heat, which does wonders for the ambient temperature
