    Yep.

    It you can cool your CPU all you want, but if the VRMs(on graphics cards too) don't get cooled enough, you will start to throttle.

    I have tested this by benchmarking with my case closed, open, and open with an old hair dryer blowing cool air on the VRM's, and the last one gave best results.
    Yes, some VRMs can get really hot. Worst case is that your computer becomes unstable, crash or won't even boot anymore. Latest MBs should have protections for all this, but better be safe than sorry, especially if the manufacturer has been kind enough to include a placeholder just for VRM cooling purposes. :)

    The problem right now is the In Win 303, and the VRM's sit in the upper left corner, inset, under where the fans are.

    I have tried turning the outtake fan at the back around to suck air in, but the case warms up a tab, so that isn't an option.

    With intake at the bottom, the huge Zotac blocks airflow to the VRM's, so this is why I need a mini fan(40mm)

    You mean behind?

    The psu and cable stash, plus there are holes in the side of the case on the back panel. InWin 303

    Hmmmmm....
    Really?

    NVIDIA GeForce 11 Series Launching Around July, Hynix GDDR6 Production Schedule Reveals
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1180 & 1170 Projected To Land in July, to Feature 16Gbps GDDR6 Memory in 8GB and 16GB capacities

    GDDR6 will reportedly power most, if not all, of NVIDIA’s upcoming graphics cards. This includes the upcoming gaming focused GeForce 11 series as well as upcoming Tesla and Quadro parts for the AI and autonomous driving markets.

    SK Hynix has also confirmed to GamersNexus that GDDR6 will be entering production in three month’s time around late June, early July. This puts the the GeForce 11 series launch right around July, which happens to coincide with a report published earlier this month that put the launch also in the July timeframe.

    The new memory will run at 1.35v and deliver double the speed of GDDR5 but will cost around 20% more to produce. So, expect slightly higher MSRPs than NVIDIA’s Pascal GeForce 10 series launch prices. SK Hynix has also confirmed that it will offer GDDR6 chips in 1GB and 2GB densities. Typically, each 32-bit GDDR memory controller segment is paired with a single GDDR chip, this in turn means that we’ll be looking at 8GB and 16GB capacities on 256-bit GPUs, i.e. what would be the next GTX 1180 and GTX 1170 graphics cards.

    The fact that SK Hynix will be producing both densities means that a customer or multiple customers exist for both. It’s possible that we could see NVIDIA offer GTX 1180 and GTX 1170 cards in both 8GB and 16GB capacities. NVIDIA could also choose to differentiate these two cards based on memory capacity, in addition to GPU configuration.

    I don`t know how true that article is, the next series, Ampere, is said to use the 2000 series name.

    I think going from a 1000 to a 2000 series label is pretty stupid, only time will tell.

    NVIDIA

    But whatever they name it, a 16GB video card will be sweet.

    I've heard same rumors for a while now. I do agree that jumping from 1000- to 2000-series naming does not make any sense, except if the new cards are twice as fast and/or at least has new features like dedicated AI cores (specialized for machine learning) etc. interesting new features that will blow our minds.

    Heheh, because NVidia seems to have issues with deciding their naming conventions. We have things like GTX8800 which also does not make any sense at all.

    Best might be Architecture - chip - additional nomenclature
    Like Pascal GP102 Ti
    For a 1080 Ti for example.
