I'm not sure. thanks for the help so far guys.
Fans have arrows on them showing direction of flow.

Set your gpu fan to manual and move the slider to 60%. That's about the max before going deaf from the turbine noise. There's no easy way out in the battle between heat vs noise. You gotta choose, your hearing or overheating the card?


Or, you could go water like me.

Changing the thermal paste on the card can significantly lower the temps. You should also keep the fan on at least 50% when you're gaming otherwise the temps will get pretty high. Can't believe no one suggested this yet, rofl.

Are you using those crappy CoolerMaster run of the mill craptastic fans in the CM 690 II Adv?

Also as has been said it the choice of cool vs noise, or get a good aftermarket cooler.

I have the default Coolermaster Chassis fans yes. The ones that come with the case.

lol that's true. The stock CM fans push about as much air as a stiff fart.

that hole in the case is an extra expansion port that u could use with a riser card or something. and ur card's high temps might be its actual operating range temps. so u could be the wrong one and ur card would be fine

Extra fans do help if hey are in the right place. If you have an extra fan lying around it wouldn't hurt to experiment. Try taking the back I/O panel off too and doing a little cable management to get wires out of the way of airflow.

Ok, becausse the fan blows out the side vent, like, it sits a little above it.

No.

Get some Artic Colling F12s or Yate Loon medium speed fans. You could spend a lot more money on Gentle Typhoons but you don't need to spend 20 bucks a fan to get good flow. AC F12s are 10 bucks a pop and the Yates are 5-6 bucks a pop.
