Would you get an External Exhaust card or no?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
while browsing around trying to figure out if i should get an ee card or not.. i really cant seem to decide which one is better. according to some graphs it shows non ee cards and ee cards the difference in case temp is minimal.

im looking for a card to put into an antec 300 case

Pick a card, not a cooler. Once you have decided what card you want then you look at reviews for the different versions available and go with whatever one is reported to be best. Do not worry about the type of cooler, it will not affect your other components temps more than 1-2c as long as you have decent case airflow.

some one said evga might come out with an ee version of the gtx 560 while i was about to buy the gtx 560 card on evga's site. Some people said with a small case like the antec 300 i should go for an ee card.

evga one is kind of iffy in terms of whether its external or not, because there are vents on sides of the cards and front where pci e plugs are. i would say its half and half.. unlike the gtx 570 where air would actually all escape and push through the back of the case with the fan design.
