Thanks Xeb! Hmmm well that fan is an exhaust. Even before replacing the TIM on the chipset they never got all that hot while oc'd. I never considered making a wood shroud though.
It was just so easy to cut up an old fan and make the shroud for it but after making the tiny frame for the lcd I don't see any reason why I couldn't make a matching fan shroud. It's much more visible back there than I anticipated and I'm about to start tearing it all apart anyway

Thanks well it's not to bad I guess.
I pulled the psu out of the kids rig and popped it into the table... and... nada. I get the green light on the onboard mobo power button when it's plugged in but nothing will power up. So the fantastic 4+1 phase power design MSI stilllllllll uses must have failed on the 790fx-gd70. I'll know for sure later when I pull it all apart. Sad.. wasn't even pushing it. Set it back to the 1.48v I'd been running it at since I bought it a little over a year ago.
I'll just consider it a blessing in disguise. This may open the door for an upgrade to Bulldozer down the road. For now I'll just have to pull it all apart, take a look and toss in the Asus M4A79XTD EVO that's in the kids rig until I can get the MSI RMA'd or replace it. Not that I can afford to lol Sponsorship is looking better and better
