Looking for a desk fan to help cool GPU's on open air test bench

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My bedroom tends to get rather warm due to my computer with multi GPU's running 24/7 and since I migrated the other day from a Silverstone FT02 to an open air test bench (Microcool Banchetto 101) I was looking into maybe picking up a desk fan that pushes a good amount of air at a comfortable noise level to point at my GPUS. Does anyone have a desk fan they use that they would recommend?

I was checking out the ones at Amazon and was thinking about something like this:

Unless your test bench sits in a very poorly ventilated spot in your room, it should not need a desk fan to blow air to the graphics cards at all.
Just make sure the area around the test bench is clear, especially its rear.

If you do not mind, please upload a few pics of your Banchetto 101. I am also an 101 user too and would like to see another 101 in active duty.

And, would you also fill in details of your system? Just click User CP at top and then go into Edit System at left.

I had been running just a single 5870 but I recently switched to 2x6990's and having the large tower fan that's in my room pointed at them makes a big difference in temps. I'm looking for something smaller that can sit on the desk though and maybe isn't quite as loud as my 40" tower fan.
