I would advise not to do that, because you're basically having hot air (which comes from the CPU) blowing toward the GPU. From my understanding, GPU can handle the heat, but when you're doing that, you're actually increasing temperature inside the case (thus the cpu), and now its a problem. I would recommend having hot air blow to the exhaust fan as much first and secondly to the gpu. The CPU cooling should be a first priority.

Another thing, I don't know how powerful your fans are. (In terms of CFM). You might think about getting a fan that has a larger CFM to improve airflow. Hope this reply helps!

Thats why I asked my question about whether anyone knows a way to Vertically mount a Horizontal AM2 cooler.

The Air Flow is NOT currently all in one direction, as pretty much all aftermarket coolers, unfortunately, mount Horizontally on the AM2/AM2+ Socket.

Well, sorry to say, I have no expertise in cooler myself. I've always used the stock (again, cheapo me). Sorry.

It's just the latest beta bios from MSI. nothing fancy about it!

Ahh..ok. Well if there was a bios release where we could adjust NB voltage would be awesome. Maybe we should discuss what BIOS options we like and perhaps propose it to MSI so that they could program the BIOS the way we want it to be?

For me, I personally would like the adjustment on vCore and vDimm to be more precise, rather than having it adjust every .10 on changes. I want it to be more like .01, .02, .03 on every increments.

Also there should be ACC (Advance Calibration Control). After all, this is a SB750 chipset board and I see no reason why we can't get it. Just my thoughts.

Yeah I know, lol. When I heard that, I was like "uh...." Did you noticed some of the comments under the video. People were saying this guy is off. Should've stated the GTX260 or GTX280, would've made sense.

You can use an ATI card on a SLI board, you just cant Crossfire.

Yeah I know that Snowman. But when he says that to people who may not much about the technical term, it could lead to confusion. Or at least be and a bit more specific.

Yeah but you would think if he was doing a video of a SLI mobo then he would mention the latest SLI video cards to work in sli on that mobo in the video. & ^ what he said about people not knowing much about hardware compatabilities.
