Oh no, theyre in a push/pull config. One fan blows into the radiator/cooler and one sucks it right out.
BLOWING AND SUCKING AT THE SAME TIME!
SUCKS TWICE AS HARD, IN A GOOD WAY.
Btw, Ive found that removing the third fan thats an exhaust from the chassi can actually lower your temps, my R3 exhaust actually hindered the air from leaving the chassi, swapping it for a better fan made a world of difference.
EDIT: Btw Frank, I saw youre using a Gigabyte card. Theres a slight difference between the Gigabyte model and refence models and thats the fact that Gigabyte dumps most of the hot air inside your case, while the reference card dumps it all out back.
My goal is to only supply a lot of cold air to my cooler, which then does its thing and then leaves the air outside, yours is both to supply with cold air from beneath, then also to remove the hot air from your case. This means exausting hot air from the side of the chassi might actually be better for you than intake.
Heres what Im talking about:
The windforce cooler on Gigabyte is awesome tho Any in my case my goal is to have a positive airflow into my case (more intake than exahust) to feed my fans with cold air and force hot air out from perforations in the chassi. In your case it might be beneficial to actually have more exhaust to force more air INTO the case. Meaning your card will get cool air from beneath and then instantly shooting your hotter ambient temps out.
TL;DR : Theyre in p/p. Nice card, Gigabyte Windforce cooler ftw ololol. Edited by charliew - 10/5/12 at 10:16am
