I'll try that tomorrow morning. Maybe take some ducting and send it straight to the air intake of the 8800. Only problem with that is the dust which can be solved relatively easily with a filter. I was actually going to do a pretty big case mod over my spring break (this week). Make a plexi-glass window in my p180b and do a custom graphics cooling/case mod.

Hm.. I'm debating on doing this myself, with a spare fan I have laying around (one of the TT fans from the TT armor).. not sure if I should have it be intake or exhaust.. I'll try exhaust first ^_^ Nice mod, btw :]

Edit: Lol it only brought me down to 48C idle and it was 49-50 before. Not really worth it considering the amount of dust it can cause. I might try a PCI cooler though.
