Thread: Modding my case for better cooling.

    ya I think its the same here. BUt my leadtek card has an ultra fat heatsink with a little fan. I'm almost positive that if I got a PCI cooler to suck the hot air off that sink it'll drop my case temnps by a good 2 degrees.. But then again maybe all that fan will do is suck the cool air comming in from the dual 92MM's that I have on my side panel?

    I put a bit of thought of how the hot air would act and put mine offset external as shown here:

    That's exactly what I want to do. It'll take less stuff out of the inside of the case cuase of the wires and the actual space that the fan takes up. AND it'll get every last bit of hot air floating at the top instead of getting pocketed where the fan can't reach. What exactly did you do? I'm gonna make my PC into a hod rod like that. I should get eh 75MHz out of it eh?

    Yes that will definitly be appreciated. I'm gonna try it as long as I don't damage the case or make it a permanent mod like a window. Cuase if it don't look good I should still be able to change it back without anyone knowing I did it in the first place. Looks good on your case why wouldn't it on mine?
