Cooling when overclocking 9700 pro

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
At the moment, i just have my case fan, my CPU fan and my GPU fan. I think the system is running at about 30*C. Am i ok to overclock my card loads? Will i need any extra cooling?

Most of the cooling of your card will be done by your card cooler, however I w9ould strongly recommend having an intake on the front and an exhaust on the back as it makes for far greater air flow and are quite easy to install. Though in short, I think youll be fine. Good luck with it!!
