So which would be more effective? Because there is already a large cooling unit on the card.

I've just realised that this situation is quite ironic... beacuse it's a better card than my last one, which means I can monitor the temperature, it could have been that my old card was that hot but I just didnt know it.
no it just blows at it so the heatsink is much cooler and in fact im using it right now , its awsome

Whoevers getting those things, which go in a pci slot, http://www.gogofan.com/gogofanphp/im...p/4F01B4_L.jpg, like the thing that sucks out, you can get it to blow it by taking it apart and turning the blade around inside.
I tried one once, sucking and blowing *ahem*, but it was just hellanoiseey so chucked it.

Ah cool!

I see that you only have a heatsink on your card, but i have a massive plastic fan on it aswell, do you think it would still help?

Dw bout it sleeving is good, my came pre-sleeved , cos it was modular, helps airflow!

This is it:

Oh yea so it does,

So do you think it would work? For only about &#163;10 it's not too much expense!

they actually bump the price to $20 when i came there because they had to do a special order for me .
but what ever 5 bucks is just pocket change

for you you'd probably have to take off the modem thats under your video card or place it somewhere else , then plug the Vantec in the second slot down from your video card to blow air without stressing the fans

BTW i wouldnt suggest getting the Antec one because you'll get nothing out of it since its sucking air out while your video card is sucking air in, doesn't make sence.
