You might find the case cooling link below interesting.

What fan do you have on the Mugen 2?

Oh no, bad job on my part, the arrow on the card is an intake into the card and most of it it gets pushed out the back, though some does make it out the front of the card

As I said, the all the 120 fans are sp120 high performance fans

Your GPU does not look like a reference card.
Rear exhaust doesn't look like it's SP120.

You have intakes:
Lower front, SP10?
Middle bottom, SP120? How much room is there between case bottom and floor? Looks like about 20mm?
Lower back quarter on side

Exhaust:
220mm top
Upper back, SP120?

I see no exhaust in the lower half of case side or back. So it would seem all the intake air in lower half of case must go up to leave case.

That is what it looks like to me. Might be wrong so please explain.

this is the card

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133380

and heres the run down of the case.

220mm intake fan on the front
220mm side intake
sp120 HP fans on the bottom (intake) top front (exhaust) and on the mugen 2.
220mm exhaust top fan
140mm rear exhaust fan

then the 40ish spot cool fan sucking air off the VRM


also its more like 50mm or so off the floor. this on small casters

Good.
Most of exhaust is out the top with some out the back.

Looking at PNY 560ti OC2 cooler it is exhausting air in all four directions.. and with 2x pipes on right and 1x on left it is dumping at least as much heat if not more out it's front inside of case as it is out the back


Good call having it raised on castors. This is mine. biggrin.gif



Did you read the case cooling link?

It's been a while, I read it it a while back. Didn't think too much about it though, that and the side and top and a good bit of the front are mesh
