But you can do it your way and increase the temps inside the case and blow hot air directly onto your components.
actually. I'll report back on temps. It's worked in every other case I've done cooling for and I'm pretty sure it will work for mine. Never seen lower temps than when I did it my way. I don't understand why a new idea is rejected so harshly. This isn't your average drop in some fans and put a radiator in setup. Everything from the top of the GPU will be in it's own sectioned off zone. I'm not too concerned about the temps of the air blowing over the motherboard from the rad since it will be met with plenty of air from outside the case. Here's a little pic to show what I'm talking about. It's hard to explain and show through computer transcription. The end products for me have always yielded the best gains, always. I'm not trying to start a fight I'm just saying that the way I've done it has yet to let me down. Delta fans and vantec tornadoes do work every time.
The rad will run cooler, period, which makes everything else run cooler which lowers temps going into the case. There is nothing but airflow in the case. The ambient temp in the case isn't my concern at all, I know it will be low.
