How about this?
Graphics card mounted parallel to side panel with PCIe riser. Fans pulling air out of cooler and exhausting out of case through custom vents in side panel.

The Gainward Phantoms have 2 or 3 fans behind the radiator. wink.gif

One brilliant OCNer had displayed his ingenious modification some time ago which consisted of a air duct made out of cardboard planted from the case cover side vents to his gpu intake, much like the original one I saw in the first iteration of CM Cosmos cases from the side of the pci apertures to the gpu intake. It was a particular success at muffling the sound of the fan, just as well as providing a secondary port with multitudes of necessary air flow.
I come to recall his success at finding a solution by creating what basically is a simple make-shift muffler.

I have often used ducting to or from CPU and GPU coolers. Here are a couple of exhaust ducts.
