Based on that, I would think that intaking cold air right below your radiator and exhausting it out the top would yield good results. thumb.gif

Not hard to test both ways, it would be interesting to find out what your experience is.

So I ended up switching my rear exhaust to an intake and temps fell around 3 or so C, so that's pretty awesome. Also moved my bottom mounted fan to the side panel to feed the GPU directly and shaved a degree or two off by doing that as well. Thanks guys
