That is EXACTLY what I want to build. Except I'm going to try and accommodate two fans.

if you have a home depot near you they have it in the window section

Even with the shroud i think it will work better if you tip the fans justa few millimeters up in the direction of the exhaust port. it should help avoid the issue Runcmd3 was having

Will this method work on the GTX 275? By the way, i think the push and pull setup like Runcmd3 drew work better than 2 push right?

Hi all, very interested in the dirt cheap ghetto fabulous cooling solution. As you can see, I have a single card config. Would there be any merit to strapping a 120mm on it, then doing some sort of ghetto shroud to put another 120mm right on the front of the card to push air out the back of the case? Or perhaps just using a 120mm shrouded on the front to push air out of the back?

(my case is in a comp desk, so I'm always fighting temps. this thing makes so much heat, my wife makes me quit folding during the day)

Well, I'd suggest dual 80mm fans on the stock 275 heatsink, they fit perfectly.

just ordered my pci slot cooler off newegg. hopefully it works out.
also.. has anyone thought of just cutting the old shroud. or do you not want to void the warranty?
