X40 or X60

Hello good people of OC3D.

I have a minor issue that I hope you can help me with.

I currently have a gainward gtx 770 4gb phantom and an i5-4570. My case is the corsair 300r, dont get me wrong it`s a great case with lots of fan mounts, but not a lot of AIO space. So I`m thinking about getting the NZXT H440. It looks great and has good AIO capability. My GPU is running quite hot when playing heavy games. Therefore I`m thinking of getting an Kraken g10 to cool it with. The one thing I really can`t decide what to do with is which AIO should I use? The X40 or the X60. Right now I would get the best cooling from the X60 and putting it in the front. But if I decide to get another 770 and run sli. I`m either going to get unequal cooling on them, or I have to get another X60+G10 and put it in the roof. However if I get a X40 I will have less cooling now, but simple expandebility in the future. I`m really not sure... what do you guys think?

Thanks in advance for your time

-Friis

My card has the older cooler with only two fans, the new one has three.
When it gets above 80C the fans start making a hell of a lot of noise.
G10+X40/X60 would solve both the temp and the noise issue.

i would have to say x40 cheaper to expand later and GPUs not make that much heat (in terms of total amount)

Weren't X60 coolers on low stock/hard to find nowadays? That may help with your decision too

If you're considering going g10+kraken AIO cooling, you're going to expect at least $100 for new parts per gpu.
You may consider a real WC loop if you want real expandability

What temperatures are you actually getting bud? What might be warm for you might just be normal for Nvidia.
