okay I tried positioning the cpu fan to face down, towards my gpu....my temps for both CPU and GPU got hotter...not by alot, I'd say 2 degrees...but its definitely there

I use OC Scanner for GPU and OCCT for CPU...ran tests for 10 minutes....

I e-mailed antec about what they think. We'll see what they say...between the up & down position, the upward (exhaust) is better between the two. I'm interested in knowing what front and back will do. I just don't want to pull everything part until I get Antec's recommendation....its such a hassle to take off all the wiring and reapply paste...haha

Its like I was saying, all your positive pressure is blowing out the top of the case, and trying to blow into that wind tunnel with the cpu sink is just disrupting the flow of air in the case, your fighting against the air current.
go with the flow.
