Thanks for all the input
I think I've ruled out the second picture. As people have said, Many of the fans would probably not be of any benefic
I think I'm going to go with something very similar to the setup pluke the 2 explained.
- Only 2 bottom fans, centered more so that both cool the GPU and send air up to the top of the case. I don't think the air will just stop at the card, as some said It would. The GPU only sticks out half as far as the fans, so a good 1/2 of the air will travel up the case and into the HS, with (hopefully) minimal turbulence.
- Add a front intake fan that will blow onto the GPU and direct more air toward the rear of the case (again, like Pluke the 2 has his case set up with the Delta)
- position the HSF horizontally to blow up and out the top of the case.
- Mount the PSU so that the fan is sucking air from the front of the case (through a hole in the bezel) instead of sucking air from the case's interior.
Tell me what you think!
