I wish there was a simpler way to change the direction of the fans, rather than dismantling the whole computer, pulling out the motherboard and reattaching the heatsink!

that's is the biggest minus for frio...When I first saw that stupid mounting system I said to myself, ok for once in a while I can swallow that...but when I had to re-seated later and mount it again when i bought gelid extreme I almost threw it out of the window...later when I had chance a bought D14

what temps do you have now?

If I installed a 200mm fan in the side panel, would this counter any negative effects?

The fan would be an intake fan, blowing air across the GFX cards.

no one can tell exactly...you know what temps do you have now on GPUs and CPU
moutn the 200mm fan a compare it...

but I would say it will help because GPUs will be a little bit cooler so frio will not suck that hot air
