Sure you may see a slight increase to CPU temps, but those fans will be helping to further cool the GPU. I see no problem with this setup at all.

The fan has 4 blue LED's on it so it lights up blue inside the case.

Trying to get the heat off of the card, not blow it back onto it.

Honestly I don't think that VRM heatsink (the one infront of the Noctua NH-D14) is even really doing much, i can touch any part of it and it feels like cool metal. I actually had plans to have a 140mm intake fan on the side of my case, and a Vantec Tornado 80mm actually on the VRM heatsink, but now I find it to be a moot point given the temps.

and "generic" black makes it any less cheap or more luxurious
lol i don't think so

I did switch the fan around to see if it makes any difference, so far at idle it hasn't, but I'm gonna go stress it now and see how she does.

I'm actually running into an issue here. I think my VRM cooling may be to blame. I'm getting BSOD's when the card is at 50c. The only other issue it could be is directx11. I'm gonna try and undervolt the card and see what that does.

Indeed, do you have before and after temps? Is that cooling setup any effective? Is it too heavy at all?

Idle temps are like 36c, not much different from the original MSI cooler. Where it shines is when its stressed, I have yet to go above 55c doing kombuster 3dmark11 or bad company 2

So, have you found out any load temp difference (GPU and CPU) between a push fan and a pull fan for the Shaman?
