I have not setup a profile at this stage.
Hope this helps to compare your card to.
Your HAFXB has a side fan right? Maybe that's what is helping the temps to stay in the mid 80's ?
I'm thinking of replacing the side window with the grill that came with the case, and putting a fan or two on there. But It'll cause a lot of dust problems which I hate
so i'll first try putting a fan below the card like JoeChamberlain said.
JoeChamberlain, I'm not really sure if it started since I installed 8.1 because I've just now only started noticing the high temps. Maybe if checked my temps when I was on 7, I'd have gotten the same temps..?
Also, which particular fan would you recommend I put on there? Any brand is okay as long as its silent and/or offers tons of airflow
I'm curious about how the airflow would come from that spot? There aren't any holes to suck air from on that spot, in my case.
EDIT: So I removed my side panel again, and did the heaven benchmark. It maxed out at 93C. Is this okay?Edited by jammm - 11/12/13 at 11:20pm
