There is always tension , many people have a GTX + True + fan clipped on , you shouldn't worry.

Very nice, bro. Am a bit busy at the mo but I'm sure you'll be posting your 3DMark score soon enough!

This pic is very LOL by the way


Shame your PSU is sucking right where your card is also sucking. Probably 5C difference if it wasn't, at a guess.


Does it show that I'm jelous?

Theres also a window fan which blows directly onto the card so that makes up for anything the PSU is taking away I reckon.

I'm currently trying to push my CPU a bit faster because its really holding my scores back. Im getting 12,200 at the moment.

I agree, I'm sure that will make up the airflow difference.

OCing your CPU more? Do you have heat problems with NB/SB yet? I have a spare SB cooler which is really good and fanless but I'll never need it, if you want it.

turn the fan around so it blows air down into the psu.

That way the two aren't competing for the same air.
