Also, with all these high end air coolers around (efficient and quiet) the question has to be asked....is water cooling dead?
As we said, were confident these principles will hold true for the majority of you but, as ever, the best thing to do is experiment and see what works for you, your fans and your case. Now, if you dont mind, were off for a well earned beer.

So how large an effect does the orientation of the graphics card make to cooling ?
I am wondering if "raising" the centre card with a PCI-E cable will allow more air to circulate.
Thanks for a great article, I have all six fans as exhaust, leaving air to enter the rear grilles as needed.
P.S. Four NMB 120x38 server rack fans to play with today !
