Kaltenbrunner Well I run with the side panels off all the time. The only thing I find loud is usually the single HDD, and ok the GPU fan in games is louder. But overall, my system is pretty quiet compared to a lot of people with a full case.

Also less dust builds up for sure. And yup it's cooler for sure. I should put the panels back on to see how much cooler. I don't use any case fans, just a 2x140mm SilverArrow and a monster cooler on a Zotac rtx 2070 AmpExtremeCore

Agree!

Change the case also with more intake fan options! Even better to find a case where you can vertically mount the gpu! Doable for 150!

bigjdubb I'd ditch the hard drive cage and mount the disk to the underside of the optical drive cage or flat to the bottom, that should get some more fresh air to the card.

You could probably add an AIO and stay within your budget if you want to really cool it instead of just improving the temps a little bit.



Out of curiosity, have you adjusted the fan profiles? The factory cards will sit in the 80's unless you tell it to keep it cooler than that.

Rocklin vertically if space allows

lite installs keeping things minimal on mine, haven't seen over 70c pushing my tiny card

(can rename Nvidia installer from .exe to .7z, and open with Bandizip to remove bloat, or..)

Nvslimmer (edit; Nvidia drivers have a DCH version, works best with this)

speed_demon Have you tried removing the pci brackets and leaving them off? It allows air to more freely exit the case and made a small but helpful improvement on my last build.

You could also look into fitting larger and or better flowing fans like the Arctic Cooling F14 PWM for your intake.
