I like the idea of being able to mount it exhausting towards the rear fan. But it can go either way in my case because the top fan and rear fan move around the same amount...give or take ~10cfm,

Plus dont really have the liquid case right now.

But will buy one when i have the green

I can also do that due to the antec 300 having a 140mm fan at the top the only thing is is air flow and pulling air of the graphics card, it made a 2-3C difference in temps in for me at load

hey,

take your time. i'm not going to pressure anyone into buying one.

i'll have these as long as members want them. and i of course support cheaper methods. even if it is a late product from xigmatek.

out of curiousity, has anyone experience significant drops in temperature after utilizing the bracket mount versus the stock configuration?

even with a small temp drop... i think whats important is the system air flow, better air flow, lower fan speed.... less noise
