Extra cooling?

 Share

Looking at the Silverstone ld01 case(inverted) and wondering if having 2 140 mm fans aimed at the bottom(would be top in this case) of a reference card(vega 64 in this scenario) would help with cooling at all?

it can help a little, but likely not to the degree you want or expect. Since its a reference blower style, it will still run hot regardless.

well, it won't hurt, that's for sure.  But like Skiiwee said, it is a reference card so it's cooling just isn't fantastic.  BUT, do a little water cooling and you'll be siting pretty,  NZXT makes an AIO mount that should work for that card.

Ty! Yeah I was thinking of watercooling but it's so expensive it might be an over time upgrade. Didn't think a blower style would benefit a lot but just having the fans will at least keep it a positive pressure case lol.
