If a card is getting that hot in WoW, then there's something wrong with the airflow configuration in the case. Solution would be to add some intake fans and some exhaust fans and definitely clean everything inside the computer as well. There's no need to blame the card itself for something that's having a negative effect on it.

@nexxusty, side panel fans still contribute to the overall airflow within a case, they may seem useless, but imagine having no other fans except for a side panel fan (ie. the 200mm on the HAF), although it doesn't do much, when there's a ton of heat in the case it would still help. The reason it seems useless is because the other fans have a greater effect, thus minimizing the effect of the side panel fan.


So can we please all get along ?
Side fans do not help. Period. They only help if you do not have a proper setup front-to-back. And they suck in dust to boot. If you put a side fan in my properly configured case it would totally screw the airflow and put me up 5c easy.

Please for god sakes go look at an airflow comparison or something before you spout this crap. Your statement is simply not true.

Man, I've tried this over and over again, my temps have not once gone above what they normally are, with or without a side fan.

Haha, tried and tested eh?

These things are annoying I know, try adding a "Midship" fan to your chassis. Right in front of the 5.25 bay, use zip ties or whatever you want to mount it. It helps push airflow along, with fans setup like this the wont be an inch of your case without airflow. Obviously that is how it should be. I will update with a pic ASAP.

It could help ya out. Cheers bro.

I just did this in fact, this evening. Certainly did help and I now have a use for the fan I bought to use as a side fan, using it on the side just didn't seem to help in my case.

I don't have a side panel fan (not even an option on my case) but I did add a 120mm S-Flex (G) fan on the back of my upper HDD cage (check my gallery pics) in my case and that drastically reduced my cards' temps. Before they were easily hitting 80C a piece. Now, even after folding for days on end they don't go over 70C and that's with the ambient room temp going up (been getting warm in NJ).

I did this when I had my CM690, no need to do it now really, I've got more than sufficient airflow going through my case. No matter what I do at this point won't drop my temps.


Which is why its time to build a CPU loop (which I'm almost done with . In the future I'll add a rad for my GPU as well.

... You guys I'm confused.. the scout comes with the option to put 2x 120mm fans on the side panel.. Is it worth putting the fan there? Here's a picture to give you an idea:





Sexy cards

Original PCB is the correct term right? or is it reference (can someone clue me in) ;]

Its reference , and it might make a small difference if any at all since you have an Xfire setup, I'd try it with some fans that don't cost much, like Yate Loons if you're not sure whether its worth it or not.
