Guess we wont know until he completes his system. I can see your point thought.

Thats the beauty of the experiment - find a problem, find a solution. Sintricate's solution may be more eloquent. Sometimes its all about the journey

No air will be venting out of the back when i make my final bracket. All air will be blowing up. Up through the rad outside the case and up threw the 2 top 120mm fans inside the case. No rear exhausting fans.

that prolly makes it a lot better but you still be exhausting lil air from the back of your case even w/o a exhaust fan + your gpu will be dumping some too
(dont get me wrong im not trying to argue or anything i hope it works out and we have some more modding ideas its just that i was thinking about the same thing and these were the setbacks for me also)

^^^Here is my simple but effective way of making a shroud

I just clipped a fan out, and filed it smooth of course... No shoddy workmanship here

I then hollowed out the bottom-most holes just enough with a drillbit to get the heads of the screws/bolts through it.

I used #6 1-1/2" Machine Screws (from HD), and 3 #6 washers for just enough space to keep from hitting the Radiator Fins when tightened down.

I'm going to be making a second shroud for the other side, but I got busy...

Mine is easy but very effective, and isn't too hard on the eyes.

Sorry about the bad quality pic.... My blackberry... Also ignore the wiring. I have been rewiring everything and trying to get the system up and going so cable management isn't the top top priority yet.

No he is talking about you GFX card's air handler, if you have one. If your GFX has a air handler it blows hot air out the rear of your case. Hot air rises only to be sucked into your H50. If you have it like sintricate's it would work better.

Add me to the list, been an owner since November and I love this thing. Had my 955 at around 27 stock clock and idle. Can't wait to OC on it. I switched mobos out and ran out of fresh thermal grease so I'm waiting for my OCZ Freeze to arrive before reinstalling it.
