have to disagree with your choice of case. for a silent build, you definitely should have gone FT03 considering the fin and heatpipe orientation of the powercolor vid card supports vertical mounting
when mounted vertically, the heatsink orientation takes advantage of the updraft and the heatpipes are short enough so that gravity wont affect its performance too much.
if you are seriously thinking about a passive build. I would take a pair of wire cutters and open up the vents on the expansion slot plate alittle though Edited by psyclum - 5/11/13 at 6:11pm
