What should I do to optimise airflow?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an H50 push pull, 1 side fan, 1 top fan, and an intake at the front which really does nothing.

My only issue is that my video cards get really hot while gaming. the top card goes up into the 80s while the second card is a good sub 70c.

How should i organize the airflow direction?

Whats your fan profile for the cards look like? Looking up your case, it seems like the airflow should be pretty good. Its similar to how I have my HAF X set up and I never had a problem keeping my SLI cards cool.

I think your configuration is fine, and honestly 70-80C for a pair of cards really isn't bad under load. My 470 hits 90C easily (by then I've cranked the fan up to 85%) when playing games like SC2 max. To be fair though, this card naturally runs hot.. tempted to swap to a 560Ti or a 570 instead
