i mentioned sometime ago that I was not happy with my gfx card temps under mid to heavy gaming,reaching 80degC and close to max fan speed(4,000rpm).not only he noise but also the lifespan of the card itself being pushed at this kind of temps.
its a Gigabyte 750ti model natively slightly overclocked and which had not great review about colling design (heatsink and fan) so I would say my fault,not the V1 case design
but I am thinking to improve the situation and I have 2 Options in mind (low cost ones)
adding 2 arctic f8 fans at the back of the case to get a proper push pull flow
I am using the same cpu cooler than level32 thread poster here with the original 200mm front fan
modding the card with either adding another fan on top of the existing one (silly?) or completely removing this tiny fan from the card and replace it with a larger diameter one
what do you guys reckon about the merit of these 2 options
Option1 is super easy to implement but I am not convinced it will ahve a great effect on GPU temps more on the CPU I believe,but correct me if I am wrong
Option2 is more of a DIY job but not that difficult to achieve when time permits over the week-end and I feel it would have more cooling effect
again,appreciate your views
PS this is crazy how this case push you to think mods and stuff,really great design and fantastic bang for your bucks over here in Japan vs the competition!
