does your stock fan blow hot air out of the side?
post #123 of 425
made another drawing for sli this time.. if you can cut the stock shroud or make a new one you could force more air into the card... from the bottom and the side

For that mod to work you'll need a motherboard setup like the 780i, 780i, and 790i where its got full 16x slots with two completely free slots in the middle. That and I would recommend extending where you plan on putting the shroud to cover all the way to the PCI slot fan. You'll most likely want to build a retention bracket to keep that 120mm nice and snug against the butt-end of the shroud too

I need to find something to build mine out of. I've looked all around my workshop, but I found nothing suitable. I'm not sure where I can get Plexiglas either. =[

I was thinking i might make a beveled inner lining to the shroud if i can fit it to give it some extra strength and aerodynamics. I'll get some schematics up when i get access to another scanner
Heres a to-scale schematic of the pieces im going to cut, the vertical lines are the fold points, and circles are the holes for the fans.
