Great Little FAN!!!!!

Recommended Posts

I just installed this little gem of a fan to hopefully get some of the hot air generated from my XFX 8800 GT Alpha Dog Edition. That is OC'ed to what is in my sig. Anywho to make a long story short it dropped my temps from 72 under full load to 61 at full load. To me that is awesome. :eek2: 11 degrees for just putting in that little cheap fan.

 

At Idle now it is at a max of 46-47 degrees and before i put the fan in it was over 50. Big improvement. So what i read was true that the video cards just blow the hot air around but if you put a fan underneath to suck the air out it helps alot.

Interesting...i added a second 120mm fan crossflowing from the hard drive cage to the video card and id idles at 54ºc....If no fan is placed or if I rely just on the front intake fan the temperatures climb to 61ºc

on load the temperature never get past 70ºC with the extra fan...anything to cool those hot 8800GT

Yeah i think the key is getting the hot air out of the case from around the vid card. Ambient for me 33 degrees.
