Thinking about upgrading my video card, but wondering about getting a blower fan GPU vs an open air fan GPU.

Anybody tested blower GPUs vs open air GPUs to see if which is best?

It seems that the open air ones are actually not too bad because the fans line up well with the vents on the left side.

But are blowers even better?

i would use an AIO cpu cooler if i were using an open air gpu.

Use an AIO instead of air cooling for a CPU regardless lol

Anyone thought about removing the rivets from the top back part and the front bottom than replacing them with a screw so the top of the case opens up making it easier to work on? Have a Senteyยฎ Ss6-2441 and was wondering why we can't also that, I can post pictures later so you can get a better idea what in taking about

you could make one using "slotted" steel sheets, 0.8mm minimum thickness.
use a metal sheer to cut into your desired size, and you simply screw the HDDs through the perforations.
don't forget so file and sand down the sharp edges.

the best ones to use is either slots side staggered or slots straight lines.

You're a gentleman and a scholar sir.

Looks a lot like Cerberus case HD cage thingy. I will give it a try.

Thanks for the input on the blower GPU.

I had to test it myself of course, so here are my results running Unigine Valley for 5 minutes:

EVGA GTX 970 Open Air GPU - CPU 60C, Motherboard 54C

EVGA GTX 970 Blower GPU - CPU 53C, Motherboard 52C

Conclusion: Using a blower GPU will significantly reduce the temperature of the other parts in the system. Definitely recommend a blower GPU over an open air one.

Thanks for testing both setups!

What are the ambient temperatures like? What's the computer setup like? CPU? HSF? Etc?

Which was quietest though? Would guess it was probably the open air gpu. Unless you are really pushing the CPU I would say get the gpu with the best cooler you can as it's usually the loudest component. Another 7oC is like a hot day vs a cool day so shouldn't make too much difference I would think...

Ambient was about 24C.

CPU: i7-6700
CPU Cooler: CNPS8900 Quiet (highly recommend this one btw, it's been great)

Good point. The blower is significantly louder than the open air.

Really it's a trade off between noise and temperature.

If you want the best temperatures for the other parts in the system, get a blower GPU.

If you want the quietest operation, get an open air GPU.
