I never meant that it goes to the rear compartment where the psu/storage/and cables are. The heat just goes through the single 120mm on the right side of the pic I took. And it naturally seems to be trickling out from the back from where the 80mm fans could go, but I dont want them. I could fit another 120mm up top, but I would need to remove the harddrive cage and pass the CPU power cable through the hole there, then I can get a second fan up there.
Edit: Also I don't usually keep the case laid flat horizontally, it's usually vertical. I just took a pic of how I had it when I finished assembly. But I kind of like the look if it being horizontal, but gonna look at it for a bit and see what orientation I like better.
Edit 2: Ok I think I get what you were trying to say now, my b. The heat must find its way from the front and the side of the card between the radiator I guess. Because when I put my hand on where I have the exhaust, I am def feeling the hot air, as well as hot air on the back. I agree it's not much room, but it's working fine. I had the 1080 FE in this build before I got the Strix, and the strix is running cooler and quieter so no complaints here.Edited by Soprohero - 6/16/16 at 11:31am
