HR-05 SLI - OK to run passive?
I've ordered a pair of HR-05 SLI coolers to replace the stock heatsink/pipe cooler on my Evga 680i ... my question is whether or not the HR-05 SLI is effective enough to be run passive on the NB and SB ...?
(Also if anyone uses one of these, any tips for installation would be very helpful)

I would expect them to run fine passive.. 70mm fans fit if you push the OC to the point of needing to run them active.$300 for your CPU
$500 for your GFX card
$100 for your memory
$200 for your motherboard
$9.99 for your PSU
Having a CHEAP power supply take out your computer PRICELESS.

I forget who, but someone else posted pics a while ago, who was using two HR-05 SLi on NB/SB on a 680i.
The SB runs fine passive, however he said the NB needed a fan. A 70mm at 7v should be adequate, in these scenarios a little airflow goes a long way.
