Hmm do you have drives on the top cage? I wonder if having more direct air flow would make any difference. once you get the fans installed on the drive cages it would help a lot. I have reference cards which exhaust out the back. With that card design does it just force the air off the heat sink and into the case? my thoughts on reversing the fan in the door are that if you do that then it will create a situation where all of the air in the case will want to exhaust out the side. so any cooler air won't be passing over the motherboard and the cooler air won't be making it to cool the cpu either.

here is some good reading on how air pressure works i hope this will help some

No hard drives on top, just a single SSD. I will add the two 120mm fans next to the hard drive cage. Do you think I should add another set of fans to the top, like in your setup?

Here are better pics of the card. They seem to send the hot air through the top and bottom of the card (no pci-e back exhaust)

doing more work on my setup too. new cards and swapped some fans around to test the AP-15 on my heat sink. (since this picture I flipped the fan the other way so the wire wasnt hanging down lol.
