Do the cards with aftermarket coolers like MSI twin frozr throw hot air back into the case?

Does it shoot air back into the case from the fans?

How do u get rid of that air? I have a HAF 912 and both of my cards are reference but I get pretty good temperatures lol

Yes, but as long as you have enough exhaust fans this isn't that big of an issue.

I've got two upper exhaust fans in my case, one intake in the front, and my side panel is completely mesh

O ok.

I have a 200mm front intake, 120mm front bay intake, 200mm top exhaust, 120mm rear exhaust, and a 140mm side intake, and my dad put in a bottom fan by cutting out a portion of the case so I have a 120mm fan there. Should I take out the bottom fan if I get an aftermarket cooling card?

No, why would you? It would/could be supplying cool(er) air to the GPU card(s). wink.gif
