Aren't they horizontally already? thinking.gif ha, got it! biggrin.gif We all know cool air travels from bottom to top. You got make a shroud to guide the cool air towards the graphics card, very retro looking it would be biggrin.gif

Or maybe angle the fan so it tilts to the graphics card. You could use an old fan and redesign (cut, sand) to make it an angled shroud. Just thinking out loud here.

You could always put a fan in the bottom blowing up in to the GPU, or if you have a Trooper put fans on the side panel.

Finished the fan controller, still ever so slightly blue but only under strong light like a flash for example. So much better than the Phobya one i had.

Also lobbed a sticker on, think its about right for the case
