Hey mate - Just thought now you have your GTX 690 running nice and cool you might want to overclock it a little bit and squeeze another 15 - 20 frames out of it , If you think you don't need to and your happy with everything then just ignore this little bit of info.
Download EVGA Precision 4.0.1 (the latest)and install.
Once app is running you will see
Power Target (set to 135%)
GPU Clock Offset (set to 120mhz)
Mem Clock Offset (set to 200mhz)
That's it :) this isn't an intense overclock but it worked very nice when I had 1 stock fan cooled GTX 690
and because it's EVGA precision there is no need to worry about damage to the card because it will just turn off PC

Have a look at this

skip forward to 26mins for Precision - Enjoy :)

Cheers mate - I have already blown one 690 sky high with Precision - Dell replaced under warranty..

So I'm a bit hesitant !
 
I will tidy up the SATA cables and such a bit later - I had to remove the cable management channel to fit the radiator in, and now ther is no space for my SSD, you can see in above the DVD!! It doesn't want to work in the drive bays for some reason...

I too am surprised how good the temps are - as in this mid size tower there is not a great deal of room.

Gaming at 5760 x 1080 the temps never go over 40 deg C even with stu's slight over clock figures above.

So great result and I am super happy with this mod - now to save up for the extra 690!

Will have to wait - $1100 GTX690 plus $350 for 1200W PSU, I don't have that cash lying around..

I will have to eat rice and tomato sauce for the rest of my life!

Be very careful when choosing your PSU . Remember the Corsair AX 1200i does not work with the Aurora R4 motherboard and I/O Board (Well it didn't for me) and the Dell Alienware Area 51 1200w psu is not powerful enough because it cuts out when graphics are pushed up to high setting's.
The only PSU that's 100% going to work with 2 GTX 690 cards in the Aurora R4 is the OCZ1250
Here's a little list of Nvidia certified PSU's but remember what I've said :)
