Hardly any. I had to orient the cooler so the tubes weren't in a funky position, but it fit perfectly fine.

I actually installed the same cooler in a much smaller case recently, barely got it to fit but was worth it. http://www.silverstonetek.com/raven/products/index.php?model=RVZ01

The GPU performs phenomenally. I use a 1440p monitor and it can handle anything I throw at it, it doesn't break a sweat on Shadows of Mordor with Ultra textures and Final Fantasy 14 is buttery smooth even on highest settings. My only complaint is that I've been spoiled by my Asus Strix 980 that I sold to my brother, that card was so quiet you could barely hear it. The 980 ti runs hotter, so the fan speed sound is definitely more noticeable under load. I'm actually looking into a liquid cooling setup for this card, since I really like quiet. If you don't mind temps in the ~70's to low 80's under load as well as a bit of heat, this card is a monster and totally worth it.

Definitely had to plan out some parts to make it all fit, but was totally worth it.

Haha. This was taken awhile ago, a Wii U now sits in it's place with 8 controllers for epic Smash Bros parties.

See, if I had to do it all over again I would totally go your route and make everything match. The white sleeved cabling, the white fans, along with the impeccable cable management is what sets yours apart.

Been doing a lot of research, and I can either turn my 980ti back in (less than 30 days) and get a 980ti hyrbid somewhere when it gets in stock, or I can install an aftermarket water cooler that looks like it just literally came out from corsair. Check this out: http://www.corsair.com/en-us/hydro-series-hg10-n980-gpu-liquid-cooling-bracket Noise and temp levels are ridiculously low with this, and I'm seriously looking into water cooling for the GPU. Just never thought that this case could fit a liquid cooled GPU fan!

I use an H55 for CPU cooling and have no complaints at all, especially from the noise levels, and I figure I can install another H55 using the bracket in my other fan slot with relative ease with the HG N980. Someone over at Corsair though actually used this bracket with the exact same case and an H100, something you might find interesting. http://www.corsair.com/en-us/blog/2015/july/380t_loki_build

Went ahead and put my build up, will be uploading pics soon.

That makes sense. Built my first computer last year using this case and used a Asus Strix 980 that was really quiet. When I upgraded to the EVGA ACX 2.0 980ti was just surprised at the heat/fan speed increase and was just curious. Ultimately I really like quiet, love the performance increase though.

Kudos for using the sleeved corsair cabling and usage of wifi antenna. It would have been nice to know about those options last year when I was building it! If I ever decide to revamp the build I'll use the sleeved cabling and probably Noctua fans instead of the stock ones.

I'm curious to know how hot your build gets with your new 980 ti. I practically have the same exact build with this case and am getting temps of ~80 under load after I switched out my 980.
