Airflow includes exhaust as well. I would have one of the NF-A14s positioned to blow air directly to the GPU. Then again, there might not be much you can do to affect GPU temperature. Looking at GN's review, there wasn't much difference in GPU temperature with their different fan configurations so it could be a limitation of the case.

Start planing how you are going to cool the vram and vrm on the card too. The vram is not a problem unless you have it overclocked, but the vrm area needs to be cooled. The Morpheus comes with a separate VRM cooler that clips on the PCB, so it may not fit your card's particular PCB. The Accelero III comes with separate small heatsinks that you tape/glue on to the mosfets.

Morpheus II has enough individual heatsinks for both the vRAM and the VRM even if the included heatsink doesn't fit, I had more than enough and the VRM heatsink didn't fit my card.

Ghetto style rigged. Doesn't look as bad as it sounds, and heatsink cools VRM aswell, cus it's the stock one. And if you do the mod with p12 arctic fans, it's gonna cost you a dime.

You say "Airflow include exhaust as well". Airflow is like water flowing in a pond or lake. Think of your case as a van sunk in a pond and van windows as vents. if we put a propeller in a window pushing water into van we will have same amount of water coming out another window. Maximum flow of water thorugh van is controlled amount of water flowing out of van. If we have 4 windows with propellers push in and 4 or 5 windows letting water flow out then all the water propellers push in can come out. But if we have 4 windows with propellers pushing water in and only 2 windows for it to come out of we will end up with only 2 windows of water flowing through case. What goes in must come out / what comes out must go in. But we don't need propellers / fans on both intake and exhaust to have good airflow. Same as we don't need push and pull fans on coolers or radiators to have good airflow.

You will not get good airflow by blowing air into a case / at a component. What you will end up with is lots of air movement mixing, spinning around all.

What we want is to have air flowing into case on it's way to components that use it to cool and then flow their heated exhaust on through and out of case. The less blowing and mixing the better. This is why all my systems have case fan speed curves matching airflow to component fan airflow requirements with case fans only flowing a little more air than components are using to help move heated component exhasut on out without mixing with cool airflow.
