9800gx2 fan direction help...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just a quick question about the card. I purchased one and it will be here tomorrow. Im in the process of modding the case and wanted to make sure which direction the card blows heat inside the case. Can you guys clarify on that please? Thanks.

No it doesnt... The X2 vent to the side of the heatsink and into the case, so for example if you had an Antec 900 you would run the fan next to the card (on side panel) as exhaust... Not sure why nvidia have designed the card this way but they have so thats it

Have a look here http://www.evga.com/PRODUCTS/enlarge...P3-N897-AR&I=4 and you'll see that it doesnt vent to the rear, it vents along the edges... Biggest fault is that the cooler does increase case temps a lot
